Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the fastest growing sport in the world.
It has roots tracing back to the Ancient Greek Olympics in the form of pankration (a no rules fighting contest). However, in modern times its resurgence can be attributed to the UFC, which started in the 90’s.
Originally MMA was ‘martial art vs martial art’, over the last 20 years the sport has evolved into a fusion of several of the most effective and proven martial arts. MMA is now a discipline of its own.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) at Combat Lab
At Combat Lab, we combine techniques from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Judo and Karate. MMA is the most well rounded way to defend yourself in a physical situation. A competent mixed martial artist can control a fight in all three components of a fight; stand up striking (Muay Thai/ Boxing), clinch grappling (Wrestling/ Judo), and ground (Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/ Submission grappling). There is no better way to defend yourself.
MMA for fitness
If you are interested in gaining fitness, strength, or conditioning, there is no better way. MMA is the sport for you. Our classes are designed to build cardiovascular endurance, while still building strength and muscle. It is like doing a 5km run and a 45 strength workout at the same time.
It is no secret that most professional football teams (NRL, AFL, NFL) have MMA conditioning coaches on their staff for cross training, as MMA is widely considered the gold standard for conditioning.
