De Gracie familie en de UFC
MMA is best known for the 'Ultimate Fighting Challenge', or the UFC. It was initially organized by the Gracies to prove the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu over other martial arts. The first editions were therefore overwhelmingly won by Royce Gracie.
Traditional boxers and kick boxers had no idea what to do on the ground. That is why everyone quickly started 'cross-training' to be able to defend themselves there too. This mix is therefore called Mixed Martial Arts. In modern MMA, all styles merge seamlessly and a lot is still developing. Sometimes the ground fighters have the upper hand, sometimes the kickboxers. Every new trend gets an answer.
MMA class with instructor Pepijn Schupp
Our MMA classes are designed for all levels. We start with a warming up, followed by techniques that we drill as skill development and further warming up.
Depending on the technique we sometimes use positional sparring to learn how to deal with a specific situation.
Classes end with sparring, which is optional if you are just beginning.
We have a focus on adaptive training, depending on the skill level of your partner you adapt your intensity. It's very important to be able to train in a safe environment where you can trust your training partner.
MMA is more than just a sport - it's also an incredibly effective self defense system. By combining elements of boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Judo, Wrestling, and Sambo, MMA provides a comprehensive set of tools for defending yourself in real-world situations.
