WHAT IS MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Mixed Martial Arts or MMA is one of the most prominent martial arts today because it is so applicable to real life self-defence situations. It is a style used all over the world which combines standing self-defence, as well as ground fighting techniques. As most fights in the real world are unbalanced going to the ground isn’t always an option so it is good to have both stand up and ground self defence skills.

Ka-chi Mixed Martial Arts classes combine Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Freestyle Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ). When taught properly the training should mirror a reality situation, making you realise just what you are capable of in a real situation, in the ring or on the street. Predominantly MMA is taught in order for a student to enter competitions these competitions combine striking with the hands, elbows, knees and also integrate takedowns and submission style wrestling.
