I used to do backyard MMA

With my brothers and friends.My bro used to do wrestling and boxing, so he taught me stuff.Anyway, the rules were no elbows, knees(they just hurt too bad) and of course no dirty fighting. We could punch, kick, and grapple.We wore boxing gloves and mouthguards.Man, those were fun times. Also, please dont tell me backyard MMA is stupid or dangrous; we didnt go out looking to kill each other, and we had very clear rules.

anyway, i have some questions: Is backyard MMA better than traditional martial arts classes for actual fighting? Because in my time doing that, i actually got pretty good.

Didn't Rich Franklin & Josh Rafferty do some backyard training, in a shed no less?

I learned a lot more about fighting getting my ass kicked by my 50 pounds heavier farmboy friend when I was about 12-14 than I did in TKD classes, thts for sure.
I was basically the same as you, Boxing gloves, mouthguards, but the only rules were no knees to the head and obviously no dirty fighting.
Man.....we didn't even think of using elbows.

Thing is, its all experience with fighting, your going to get better at it, its called practise it works the same way other sports do. In MMA classes, your pretty much learning correct posture and stance while doing the maneuvers.

The difference I find is that if you were in a school or a gym, the instructor would most likely be teaching multiple people at once and not soo much concentrating on you.

When I was growing up we used to do ninjitsu training in the backyard. We would dress up in the full ninja gear and go run around the neighborhood when we werent beating each up with ninja weapons (or accidently stabbing each other). I cant believe to this day no one shot us cause we looked guilty as all hell in all that black with hoods and weapons etc.

But I think backyard mma training is great I almost wish we had MMA when I was growing up. But then again seeing all these high schoolers on the mma bandwagon makes me glad we didnt. I liked being one of only about 5 martial arts practioners in my entire school.

Believe it or not, you can grapple very good even with boxing gloves on.Alot of the fights ended in someone getting choked out(by rear naked choke).

With 16 oz. gloves? I ould see maybe with some mma heavy bag gloves, but with 16 0. gloves, the guy that is getting choked would have to have no idea what he is doing. Boxing gloves are huge and would get in the way of real grappling.
