(mma) mixed martial arts
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), hybrid combat sport incorporating techniques from boxing, wrestling, judo, jujitsu, karate, Muay Thai (Thai boxing), and other disciplines. Although it was initially decried by critics as a brutal blood sport without rules, MMA gradually shed its no-holds-barred image and emerged as one of the world’s fastest-growing spectator sports in the early 21st century. MMA events are sanctioned in many countries and in all 50 U.S. states.
What Are The Main Benefits Of MMA?
Knowing how to fight is essential. MMA is a sport like any other that has rules, regulations, discipline, and restraint. MMA offers fitness routines based on conditioning programs and training followed by elite mixed martial arts fighters.
TOTAL BODY WORKOUT
In most sports, one set of muscles is required more than the other.
Swimmers tend to have strong shoulders; soccer players have strong lower bodies, and cyclists have strong quads.
MMA fighters, on the other hand, have strong, upper, and lower bodies as well as abdominals.
So the question is why does MMA develop so much strength? It’s because it is designed to incorporate every muscle in your body. When you kick, your legs are stronger when you punch, your arms are stronger, and when you grapple, your core muscles are made stronger as well.
MMA also improves flexibility. You need to be seriously nimble in order to grapple someone to the floor. If you don’t have the skills, that’s fine as well because your trainer will help you develop flexibility as you go
MMA FITNESS IS MORE THAN JUST FITNESS
Some people will burn calories quicker than others, but there is no exercise machine that compares to the speed at which MMA burns calories. It is suggested that you can burn up to 590 calories in a single 45 minute MMA workout. In grappling routines, you could burn up to 620 calories.
MMA Grappling and striking also put more muscles to use than using a treadmill, an elliptical bike, or any other piece of equipment inside a normal gym. Your core is almost always engaged, and the workout is nonstop.
SELF-DEFENSE AND CONFIDENCE
MMA is probably one of the best sports if you’re into self-defense. In boxing, you learn how to strike while standing, but MMA combines both stand-up and ground fighting. It teaches you how to defend yourself in any situation. So it builds confidence.
The true art of MMA is all about respect. People learn respect from their trainers, training partners, and their opponents as well. This respect ultimately forms a bond and a close relationship with the people you are training with. And they inevitably become a part of your Hendokickboxing family.
MMA, like any other sport, requires discipline. However, MMA also teaches you discipline for both your body and mind. It teaches you discipline and when it comes to eating right, training right, and also sleeping at night.
