Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a multidisciplinary sport that incorporates techniques from various martial arts disciplines, including Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Judo, Karate, Sambo, Tae Kwon Do, Wrestling and Boxing. And if you’re around Curl Curl, the best place to experience this fusion of martial arts is Apex MMA, Muay Thai & Jiu-Jitsu, your local gym for all things MMA.
Unpack the Disciplines of MMA
In the heart of Curl Curl, Apex MMA offers an incredible variety of classes designed to fit all skill levels. From morning to evening, beginners to advanced students, children and adults, everyone can find a class that suits their needs.
- Muay Thai, a key component of MMA, is often referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs”. It involves using the fists, elbows, knees, and shins in a symphony of strikes, honing your body into the ultimate weapon.
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, another fundamental pillar of MMA, promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a larger adversary by using technique, leverage and taking the fight to the ground.
- Judo, a modern martial art, sport and Olympic discipline, lays its emphasis on throws and takedowns. It’s an excellent way to improve your balance, coordination and spatial awareness.
- Wrestling focuses on grappling with opponents to pin them to the ground, a skill invaluable for any MMA fighter.
