Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
If you’re looking to take it to the next level with your training, and become a truly complete fighter, look no further than MMA.
Mixed Martial Arts (commonly referred to as “MMA” in most circles) is a combat sport made popular by events such as the UFC, Pride and Bellotor. It puts two competitors against each other in a limited rules contest, allowing for a wide variety of techniques that include striking, takedowns and ground grappling.
True MMA blends the key elements of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, and Muay Thai Kickboxing. Being able to fight in all areas, standing and on the ground, is what makes MMA unique.
- Muay Thai – For striking, using punches, kicks, knees and elbows
- Wrestling – For takedowns, closing the distance and clinching
- Jiu-Jitsu – For control on the ground, submission holds and strikes
