Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts is the fastest growing sport in the world. MMA encompasses disciplines from various martial arts and Olympic sports, such as Boxing, Kick-boxing, Karate, Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Wrestling and Judo. And at Ronin Training Center of Columbus, you will find many other individuals with the same interests as you.
Knowing how to fight is essential. Martial arts are sports, like any other, with rules, regulations, restraint and discipline. All Martial Arts are great to train but they do not teach you how to fight.
Boxing teaches you how to throw a mean punch, but if the fight goes to the ground the boxer is done for.
Thai Kickboxing shows you how to kick the hell out of someone, but if the fight goes to the ground the Thai Kickboxer is done for.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaches you how to subdue someone on the ground with an armbar or a choke, but it doesn’t teach stand-up fighting or punching.
Tae Kwon Do teaches you how to condition your body and mind but it doesn’t teach you how to break free of a headlock.
Wrestling will build immense strength but has too many rules to ever win a fight.
Put all the Martial Arts training styles together and you have: MIXED MARTIAL ARTS. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) combine all the styles of martial arts training into one package: learning how to fight.
“My losses and my victories are in the past. I think of the future. After a fight is over, it’s in the past. I always have to go back to the gym and train to improve in all areas, winning or losing. I think I can always do better next time” – Anderson Silva
