Success in Mixed Martial Arts depends on two things, mental toughness and good training.
Within MMA training there are several areas that focus on preparing you to resist the physical demands of the sport and giving you the necessary skills to be able to execute the large number of techniques of each discipline or martial art.
But, wanna know what is the issue with many MMA websites?
That there is a lot of News and Fight Results content but very little Beginner Training information.
So, in this section, I’m going to include guides, tips, and tutorials to help you get started in MMA or improve the skills you already have, always keeping it clear and simple.
Let’s start from scratch!
What is MMA Training?
MMA Training is cross-functional training that builds exceptional strength, endurance, and discipline through the practice of Mixed Martial Arts. This training is available to people of all ages, genders, and backgrounds.
As the meaning of MMA is itself the mixture of different martial arts, its training includes learning: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Judo, Boxing, Kickboxing and other disciplines.
Furthermore, MMA training promotes endurance, physical conditioning, proper technique, and intelligence so that people can quickly exceed their goals.
What do I need to train MMA?
Getting started in MMA is easier than you think.
The first thing you need is determination to meet your goals and get to work, the second thing you need is to have the basic equipment (which does not have to be expensive) and lastly, you need an experienced coach or teacher.
Why do you need an MMA trainer?
Because the safest way to train Mixed Martial Arts is by following the teachings of someone with knowledge who can correct your mistakes and avoid injuries.
And what if you can’t join an MMA gym?
Well, you can start by training at home.
MMA Training Components
To be a successful MMA fighter, you must constantly learn new techniques and hone your skills by focusing on the two main parts of MMA training:
- Physical training
- Technical training
The Technical MMA training is the one that consists of learning and improving the different combat techniques from different disciplines or martial arts.
The key to success in MMA is to be able to combine striking and grappling techniques in a fluid way, that is what all UFC champions do exceptionally and what has taken them to the top (think for example Demetrious Jhonson or Jon Jones, who are specialists in all areas of combat).
Physical MMA training is perhaps the most important and I’ll tell you why.
Ask yourself this question: When two athletes prepare for a match and have the same technical ability, who will win?
If you said the fittest fighter, you are correct. No matter how skilled you are, if you get tired, you lose.
Even if you just train for fun or health, what is more fun? Running out of energy all the time and losing to guys less experienced than you or being able to use all your skills and set your pace?
In conclusion, without good physical conditioning you cannot advance in MMA.
