What is Mixed Martial Arts?

Lets start with what Mixed Martial Arts is not. MMA is not a martial art in its own right, nor is UFC a martial art or any other competitive event a martial art.

So what is MMA then? Well in the modern era, MMA started out as a no holds barred fight where striking and grappling were both allowed. Then in the early nineties, it developed further into an event that matched different martial arts against one another.

In the UFC you could see a judo guy fight a karate guy or a kick boxer fight a Muay Thai guy. The early UFC was probably the first event that we quickly learned the value of the grappling arts and in particular Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or more particularly, Gracie Jiu Jitsu. The early UFC events – in fact the first four – were dominated by Gracie Jiu Jitsu! This however, soon developed into what we know today as Mixed Martial Arts, where guys predominantly study Muay Thai kick boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and wrestling.

When I moved to Aberdeen I looked for somewhere I could start training again.
I had a background in Boxing, Muay Thai and I was really keen to start learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but learning something new in a new environment is quite daunting.

I first joined AMAG for the MMA class and to get fitter but soon diverged into the other classes as I became more and more addicted to it. I put this down to the friendly, family like feel of the group and the high caliber of instructing from Leigh, Peter and the other instructors.
