The Art of Self Defence
Let’s talk about what self-defence is. At its core, self-defence is about equipping yourself with the skills and knowledge to protect you and those around you. It’s not just about fighting—it’s about awareness, avoidance, and making smart decisions in high-stress situations. The self-defence system at Apex MMA, grounded in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and MMA, offers a comprehensive approach to personal safety and physical fitness. Krav Maga principles of practicality, intensity, and efficiency complement these core disciplines, making our training suitable for real-life situations.
Unleashing Potential through Martial Arts
Now, let’s delve into the three major martial arts that make up our self-defence system. Each art brings a unique flavour to the blend, making our system versatile, practical, and effective.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
An art grounded in control and leverage, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is designed to allow a smaller person to overcome a larger opponent. It’s a game of human chess that not only keeps you physically fit but mentally sharp as well.
Known as “the art of eight limbs”, Muay Thai is a striking martial art that uses fists, elbows, knees, and shins. It’s an incredible workout and a powerful striking base for self-defence.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
MMA is a culmination of various martial arts, combining the best of striking and grappling into a comprehensive fighting system.
Benefits of Self Defence Training
Training in self-defence offers a myriad of benefits beyond just learning to protect yourself. As you grow in skill, you’ll also notice a boost in physical fitness, mental resilience, self-discipline, and self-control. Your confidence will skyrocket as you become more aware of your capabilities and limitations. On top of all these, martial arts is also a fun, social activity, helping you to make new friends while staying fit.
