If You’re Not Training Here, You’re Not Training – it’s more than just the slogan on our window. With the growing popularity of Mixed Martial Arts there has been an influx of so called “experts”, opening up “gyms” or fight clubs (mostly out of their garages).
The unfortunate reality is that most of these so called experts have little or no training in reality martial arts, they are simply looking to cash in on the fastest growing sport in the world. On one hand we have these fraudulent individuals deceiving honest people with outright lies of their experience. On the other hand we have traditional martial artists with backgrounds of Karate, Tae Kwon Do, Kung Fu, etc., putting their marketing muscle into the mixed martial arts machine.
If we look at Mixed Martial Arts in its truest form, it is a combination, a melding of Muay Thai, Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. These three martial arts have proven themselves as the most effective in their individual ranges.
Fortunately there are some academies that have legitimate, honest instructors in those three arts and understand how to use them together in the cage.
If you are looking to train, to really train, do your research. Don’t just talk to instructors, but look them up and their instructors online. If they are legit, they have a recorded history and it’s easy to find, especially in BJJ.
