CROSSTRAIN Fight Club (CFC) not only encourages training in mixed martial arts (MMA) to make bring out the fighter in you. The focus on technique in training is of utmost importance. There is no training without the right technique at CFC. The club also focuses on providing you the right information (incase you get into a discussion about MMA, you need to have your facts in place)
And so here is a little bit on the theory of your practical training. It brings out the essentials without being super focused (kind of like mixed martial arts, innit?)
So what is taught at the club is MMA, which is different from martial arts as a whole. Here are the screaming differences between the two:
Martial Arts usually is spoken about with reference to one particular form of combat practices like Judo, Taekwando, Kung Fu, Karate etc.
MMA, on the other hand, is referred to a fighting style that is a blend of two or more martial arts and involves stand up and grappling.
Martial arts requires more than discipline and practice, it demands a certain respect for the teacher along with levels that are formally set. A student of martial arts has to rise in the ranks in the form of a belt or a title.
MMA also requires discipline, a good coach and a lot of practice and hard work, but it is less formal. It normally consists of fighters who have taken their core training and added another form of martial arts to strengthen their own fight against an opponent. E.g. A wrestler will have to learn kickboxing if he or she is serious about MMA.
There you have it, a sneak peek into the vast and fascinating world of fighter training. To learn more, join up! CFC awaits your presence.
