Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) combines Kickboxing, Boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Wrestling, and Judo into one sport. MMA is the sport displayed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), as well as other local and national MMA events such as WI Xtreme Cage Fighting. Since MMA is so complex, it is necessary to focus on one specific style at a time.
Rothwell MMA breaks down MMA into separate classes of:
- Kickboxing– the stand-up portion of MMA,
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu– the ground portion of MMA,
- Wrestling– the transition from standing to ground positions,
- Kick Fit– building the required strength and endurance needed.
A variety of techniques and skills are taught, then practiced during grappling, dutch-style kickboxing, and light sparring. Strength & conditioning is practiced throughout all classes- you will get a good workout in every class. Participating in these classes will give you all the tools a mixed martial artists needs. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) class is the time to put all your techniques together in live grappling. During this time, you may learn new techniques, work drills, grapple, or spar.
