Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) combines Kickboxing, Boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, 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.
All MMA Competition Team members are required to participate in the above classes as well as during MMA Competition Team practices. MMA Competition Team is the time to put all your techniques together in live grappling and sparring. During this time, you may learn new techniques, work drills, improve strength & conditioning, grapple, or spar.
If you are looking to take your training to the next level, our MMA Competition Team may be right for you. Rothwell MMA offers competition team training for members seeking advanced instruction and/or preparation for amateur & professional MMA bouts. Competition team is by invitation only.
