Starting MMA

Hey guys im new to the forum, as well as MMA. I've decided to get into it and I was wondering if MMA has its own techniques and moves, or if you train different fighting styles like Jujitsu and Karate, then combine them ? Im wondering all this as well because I want to get into MMA fighting and im not sure what to enroll in. Thanks !

Welcome!

MMA is mixed matrial arts so their are tons of different techniques. A fighter in the most basic form will have usually a main standing technique and a main grappling technique. The most popular striking techniques are boxing, kickboxing, and muy thai. but that is not all that can be learned. The most popular grappling techniques are wrestling, bjj, and judo. But again, there are many more options.

Great fighters combine many techniques to become very well rounded. Its all about what you prefer and what type of fighter you want to be. Sometimes its not even what you would rather do, but what you are better at doing. Just have fun and train hard!

Welcome to the forum!

My advice is, if you want to start MMA, you start training in Martial Arts. .

In all seriousness though, if you want to get involved in MMA, then I would advise you train in any of the six main Martial Arts (Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Judo).

Hell, you could even throw in a little Taekwondo, or Sambo if you want.

Thumbs up Advice

One key is that you get good in at least one grappling discipline and one striking discipline. Examples being wrestling and kickboxig, jui-jutsu and maui-thai, judo and boxing, etc. The possibilities are endless and you need to keep with it.

If your just starting you should definately get a good base in a good Stand up discipline, and a good ground discipline, id reccomend Kickboxing or Muay Thai, and id DEFINATELY reccomend BJJ hope this helps!

Adding to the posts above, there are tons of MMA gyms around that teach standing and ground techniques. Whats really great about the evolution of this sport is that a true MMA gym also focuses on the "whys" of the techniques, then offers you the chance to put the techniques into practice during sparring sessions. This allows you to become a truly well rounded fighter. It seems that in the past, it seemed practitioners started with a base like BJJ and added to it. Now it seems that people are learning everything at the same time.

Lightbulb Bjj

Not everything has been focused on BJJ in this sport, though there is a large emphasis!
