Mixed Martial Arts Training in Aldine TX
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.

Professor Darren McCall - Head Instructor
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu 2nd Degree Black Belt & 1st Degree Judo Black Belt
"I am married and we are the proud parents of five boys and one girl (including twins!). With eight members in our family, we know how valuable every dollar is, and we strive to make our programs very affordable. I began my grappling training in 1994 with Judo and I received my black belt in 1999. In 2000, I started training BJJ and received my black belt in 2007. Now, I'm a 2nd degree black belt in BJJ under 6th degree black belt Murilo Bustamante. I enjoy sharing my knowledge, enjoy watching others learn, and achieve their goals and dreams!"
Assistant Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor (1st Degree Black Belt)
Don Mouser has been training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 1998. He is a technical practitioner that is over 225 lbs., but he moves like he is a middleweight. His knowledge of the game and flowing style has rubbed off on many students.
Assistant BJJ Instructor (Black Belt)
"I started in MMA when a friend invited me to train Jiu-Jitsu. I was 16 years old and didn't even know what Jiu-Jitsu was at the time. I started training as a hobby, and later, after working on it as my hobby, it became my addiction and lifestyle! Now I would not know what to do if I couldn't teach and train the art that I love so much. It has become my life."
