Mixed Martial Arts Training in Pasadena
What is Mixed Martial Arts? As the name itself implies, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a variety of different martial arts styles; it's a blend of martial arts, grappling styles, boxing, and wrestling. While the name "MMA" might make one think it's a new sport, there's evidence that a version of it was practiced amongst the ancient Greeks thousands of years ago.
MMA differs from the traditional martial arts in the fact that it has a focus on both offense and defense. These forms blend different schools and martial arts style into one new different style. If you've ever watched competitive MMA matches, like UFC or something else, you know those fighters don't just focus on one style only. They strike, kick, grapple, wrestle, utilize punches and jabs, and standard holds.
Mixed Martial Arts can be Beneficial for Young Adults, Too!
Whether you're heading off to college, moving to your own apartment, or starting your first grown-up job, when you're a young adult striking out on your own for the first time, it's understandable to feel a bit overwhelmed and intimidated by what you're getting yourself into. By learning MMA or other martial arts, you can channel those negative feelings into something positive, learning discipline and focus at the same time. It also allows you to gain valuable self-defense skills, which you can use to protect yourself if the need ever arises.
