What is “MMA?” The term “MMA” means mixed martial arts.
There are venues in which MMA refers to a combat sport allowing striking and grappling, with rules for safety and entertainment value. For clarification, we call this “sport MMA.”
Practical MMA (Self Defense)
MMA may also refer to a mix of martial arts disciplines, drawing upon different arts including boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, judo, ju-jitsu, Muay Thai boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and so on. We call this type of MMA “practical MMA” or “self defense.”
In our classes, we work on conditioning, sparring, grappling — the things that apply to both sport MMA and practical MMA.
