What “MMA” is made up of changes all the time, and its’ definition can and does change based on the Individual fighters, and what seems to be working in order to win matches.
  • “MMA” is just a general term for “Mixed Martial Arts” and grew popular out of a specific competition form…Mostly popularized by "PRIDE FC" and the “UFC” back in the early 90s.

  • "MMA" is mixed martial arts. Mixed is the key word that makes the difference. "MMA" fighters may use elements such as BJJ as part of their game but they can also use any other art or style of fighting that works for them. BJJ is a particular style with a focus on grappling with throws, locks, and body control to subdue an opponent with minimal to no striking. Typically, for any MMA fighter, they need to know a standup striking art like Boxing, Muay Thai, etc. and some form of grappling like BJJ, Judo, Sambo, Wrestling, etc.

At Mitrevski Martial Arts Academy, we offer quality training in Combat Jiu Jitsu with a training method that is clear and well-structured. Combat Jiu-Jitsu differs from BJJ, because rather than teaching you how to score points against an opponent in a competition, it equips people on how to defend themselves in real life situations. Combat Jiu-Jitsu is a little more intense than BJJ as the sparring includes striking and weapons also. This class is designed for those who have basic knowledge of the fundamentals in BJJ and striking. Our combat Jiu jitsu class is focused on the self defense applications rather than the sport of “MMA” but not limited to the Self Defense. We can guarantee that every person can master and execute the techniques perfectly.

Protect yourself from attacks

Protect yourself from all common attacks

.Just like other forms of martial arts, MMA training is meant to help you learn to fight opponents. At times, these skills can come in handy to defend yourself. Just imagine that you are walking alone, one night, down a dark alley when you and your friends are confronted. What do you do? Fight! MMA teaches you moves like kicks, punches, blows, grappling, and much more. Using these skills, you can defeat your opponents both inside and out of the ring. Although you must use common sense while putting these skills to use, they could, in some cases, save you or others.

Appreciate your body


Just like so many other sports, MMA training improve flexibility. For participants approaching older ages, flexibility can be very important. In older age, more flexibility can mean you run a lower risk for things like pulled muscles, fractures, and issues with mobility. For younger participants, greater flexibility can help in your daily life. It can also help you, greatly, if you are engaged in another sort of activity or sport. MMA teaches both passive and active flexibility. Whereas grappling can help with passive flexibility, more active training, like that of high kicks, stretches, etc. can help you much more with active flexibility.
