MMA: Theres a lot more to it
Looking to get fit and just have fun? Don't mind that you are learning nothing particularly useful? Then please ignore this message. Its not for you!
However if you are interested in the skills and training needed to perform and master MMA or Boxing then you must read on. With the popularity of MMA increasing in recent years most martial arts and even fitness gyms now call them selves MMA and Boxing gyms. This is straight out ridiculous. For starters most people don't know squat about boxing, ask Roger Mayweather, and second there is a precious small hand full of people in Perth qualified to call themselves MMA instructors. I know this because I either have known of them for over ten years or have trained with them, trust me there is not many at all. Its no secret that the most accomplished fighters are Soa, Steve Kennedy, Xavier Lucas and Shuan Spooner. Any instructor you are considering ought to at least know who they are or even better have coached them or trained with them, if not I would say forget it. To be skilled in one area of MMA is very very hard, to be proficient enough in ALL its areas is very near impossible, so do some research before you believe anyone who says they know anything. Boxing is easier to find good coaches and there are many accomplished coaches and competitors to choose from. Stylistically there is an accepted set of techniques that are used in Australian Boxing so outside of moving to Michigan your probably going to have to do your best with that. Also
unfortunately there is a ridiculous abundance of bootacamp type classes that will end in a sever headache if ever attempted to be used in competition. I wish I could say that we are better and that we have the best system and style, but I can't. There are great coaches in this town and some very good competitors fighting. All I can say is we do things differently, and this suits our students very well and may suit you also. Please check out our videos and look at our facebook page to see the talent of our students. If the club is not close to you or for whatever reason, I can only suggest do some research and don't believe the hype or the type. Read More.
