MMA PERTH: Classes at the 99ers gym
If you are a life long martial artist or are looking for self defence then training MMA is your only option. For people who have not watched the UFC or beginners looking for self defence it can be hard to decide on what system of self defence to train. The creation of the UFC has changed Martial arts more in the last 20 years then in the las 3000 years, with greater respect for the combat spots of Boxing and Wrestling and the ‘exposing’ many traditional beliefs in martial arts. Including self defence using of hidden energy, use of medieval asian swords and sticks that where used to overthrow villages and warlord in feudal Japan and china. pressure point striking and many other posturing type systems, that in reality are more an aggressive display of resistance than a system that can be used to fight someone who is well trained also.
What we do different
99ers is a MMA gym. The scene for MMA Perth has right now is full of gyms that are former Karate or Ninja or something not MMA. With the popularity of Mixed Martial Arts in media and clothing, most martial arts schools are at least attempting to address and offer MMA type principals or worse marketing themselves as MMA attempting to increase revenue. In truth it is very hard to run an MMA gym effectively and only a handful of gyms are capable and dedicated to do this. At 99ers we believe we are one of these gyms and strive to provide you the best MMA training system we can .
Because the key to MMA is in the transition having classes in Muay Thai, Jui Jitsu and Boxing does not necessarily make a it an MMA gym
Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu and Boxing does NOT make it MMA .
The reason for this is each sport has its own rules and style that is suited to these rules. No matter how decorated your coach is in each of these skills unless they completely understand MMA, trying to piece together the transitions will be up to you.
All the Martial arts we teach combine perfectly
Working out your own system and style is fine for experienced MMA fighter at pro level, but for beginners learning conflicting styles it can be confusing and even counter productive trying to decide who to listen to and what is and isn’t useful.
99ers Technical MMA System
Because we are dedicated to MMA all the Martial arts we teach combine perfectly. The significance of this is hard to appreciate unless you are experienced or knowledgable in MMA. The Boxing style blends with our Wrestling and Muay Thai, the Jui Jitsu is MMA focused and is most similar to the original Gracie Jiu Jitsu that was designed purely for the Vale Tudo and street fighting. Our grappling is all No-Gi meaning without the use of traditional white uniforms and Belts. This style emphasises a faster pace and frequent transitions or ‘scrambles’ that rely on traditional wrestling grip play rather than the Jiu Jitsu collar and belt grips and chokes. We respect the traditional natures of the arts we combine and in many cases teach the fundamentals in a traditional way that emphasises the rules of that competition. While doing this we will explain the difference in practicality or risks of using that style in MMA type competition or self defence. Our Muay Thai emphasises different characteristics and skills that are not used always used in Muay Thai despite being highly effective. The Boxing and Wrestling are all fundamentally set up the be useful both stance wise and tactically for Mixed Martial arts.
