Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is the name for the martial art where all kinds of fighting styles are combined into one. One only uses the techniques of each individual martial art that has merit in MMA. MMA is a very tough and challenging sport. At Renzo Gracie Holland we train together in an environment where fun, respect, safety and training hard go hand in hand. The dominant martial arts in MMA are:
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
- Muay Thai/Kickboxing
The various techniques from all the martial arts styles are adapted to the specific requirements of MMA. For example the lowkick used in kickboxing will be utilised, but the starting position (stance) will be different. This is due to the fact that in MMA one can be taken down. Therefore is the traditional stance less optimal.
To train you need the following items (for your first class(es) the possibility exists to borrow from us):
- Sports outfit
- Boxing gloves
- MMA gloves
- Mouth guard
- Groin protection
