MMA for Beginners

By Paul Halme Subscribe to RSS | January 16th 2012 | Views:

If you’re new to MMA and don’t really know what’s involved and how to get started it can be a little intimidating. It’s very easy to trick yourself into believing that you don’t have what it takes to enjoy yourself and improve through MMA. But MMA is for anyone with the will and courage to try it.

Mixed Martial Arts the term was actually not around until the mid 90s when the UFC was starting to take off, but the idea and philosophy have been around for a long time. Some say Bruce Lee helped popularize the spirit of MMA with his book “the Tao of Jeet Kune Do” which say that the ultimate worrier is not a master of any style, he is beyond styles and adaptable. He takes the best parts from everything he can study and leaves the rest for someone else and never stops learning. And that’s still the heart and essence of what is now called MMA, mixing styles and techniques from various forms of martial art from around the world in order to conduct the ongoing study of what works best in realistic unarmed combat. And it’s also more of a rush than anything you can buy on the market or the black market.

So MMA is a pretty open thing and most good schools like Peak Performance Martial Arts in Keller, Texas, welcome students with little or even non experience. They even offer special programs designed specifically for beginners to remove the stress from the situation and let people of the appropriate skill level train together.

It’s also important that the gym or school where you train is not pushy about competing or taking things to a level you aren’t comfortable with. Training should always be responsible and respectful of everyone who spars. The object of MMA as a sport is not to cripple or kill people. The sparring partners you choose should always give it everything while still thoughtful and respectful of safety. No throat chopping and so on.

So really, the gym you end up joining is the most important factor in your experience as a beginner to MMA. If you don’t feel that you that the school meets your needs or you aren’t comfortable for some reason you will probably leave, and you may forget about the sport altogether and leave the whole thing a little bitter.

This is why if you see a martial arts school in the Dallas, Fort worth area that offers a free trail of their gym and training sessions to see if you are really right for MMA or MMA is really right for you, you should seize the opportunity and go train. What have you got to lose?

After only a few good sparring sessions you’ll start to notice that life’s little annoyances don’t seem to bother you as much and you aren’t as angry. MMA will help you work out all of the tension and frustration that builds up and starts to make you feel stretched till you burst and scream and through coffee in traffic or something. Gotta let the beast out sometimes.
