Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Class
Mixed Martial arts is a combination of Muay Thai Kickboxing, Boxing, Wrestling, Karate, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. This style of martial arts was developed for cage fighting, most notably the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) and can been seen on any UFC or other mixed martial art event, as well as Spike Network’s “The Ultimate Fighter.” Mixed Martial Arts flows between stand-up fighting (boxing, kickboxing, and karate), wrestling, and ground fighting ( Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). The Gracie family started mixed martial arts which is now the fastest growing sport in the world. Mixed Martial Arts also known as MMA is sweeping the globe at an unprecedented rate. Gracie 601 is home to the most winning MMA team in Meridian, Mississippi and the surrounding area. Paul Joyner has trained in MMA with many of the sport’s legends and champions since the sport’s inception in the early 90′s.
