More Information on Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts is a martial art based on stand up striking, grappling and ground fighting. Most of the techniques learned in MMA concentrate on either striking from a standing position to taking your opponent down to the ground and keeping them there, thus enabling you to either strike or attack for submissions. 95% of street fights end up on the ground, making MMA one of the most effective real-life fighting systems on the planet.
MMA is a technical martial art that not only provides students with a deeper understanding of the workings and limits of the human body, but also equips them with problem solving skills and greater body awareness.
