Beginners MMA (W/David)
Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground. The popularity of MMA has exploded in recent years with the mainstream success of the UFC and the emergence of other mixed martial arts promotional companies. MMA draws from a variety of other martial arts and combat sports such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, boxing, wrestling, and Judo. MMA integrates striking (punching, kicking, elbows, and knees), takedowns and throws, and submissions by joint manipulations/locks, and chokes.
