Healthy, flexible & great mind set.
By Gino Duval
Martial arts are fantastic for the body. Regular training strengthens and tones the muscles and adds flexibility. Training in martial arts gives you a full cardio work out. You can expect to greatly step-up your strength and stamina and improve your hand eye coordination.

Martial arts is a super weight loss program as well because it becomes a complete system in which a healthy diet is part and when combined with the extreme actual activity proper weight loss is assured.
Anyone who trains in Karate, Jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do or any of the arts will gain these benefits.
If you have any desire to improve your body and psychic powers at the same time with only one activity, then martial arts is something you ought to seriously study. You don't just get in shape physically, but also mentally and spiritually. No gym exercises can compare. All across the world, adults are joining dojos and thoroughly enjoying the many benefits of Mixed Martial Arts.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a combination of Karate, Grappling, Wrestling, Tang Shoo Do, Boxing, Jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do and more all combined in one. Mixed Martial Arts in its modern form, emerged in 1993 by the Ultimate Fighting Championships ( UFC ) and was based on pitting different Battle styles
against each other with minimal rules to determine which system would be better in a real, unregulated combat situation.

During the late 1990s, the governing bodies imposed extra rules for the safety of the athletes and to try to promote the sport and gain wider acceptance, but still maintaining the no clenches barred idea. MMA has grown rapidly in the last few years with many people, both young and old, realizing the many benefits of Mixed Martial Arts both physical and mental, and this has seen enrollment in classes increasing worldwide.

MMA is classed as a combat sport, but it's a sport that stresses the ideals of fair
play and respect for your opponent still. However, MMA are still, rather sometimes, wrongly known as vicious and brutal.

Regardless of MMA's reputation, the competition is relatively safe. Due to the rules and regulations
imposed and strictly enforced and the tough mental and physical conditioning of the opponents there has never been a death or indeed a critical injury report by the MMA as immediately linked to any tournament.

Classes are run at schools, dojos, youth group organizations, church, and other, less formal settings. MMA is also being incorporated into many gyms as MMA becomes more popular.
A typical class will have you start with a warm up consisting of several stretching workouts, trunk rotations, jumps, squats and abs tightening workouts. Then there will be a series of movements taught and explained in full. Sparring is controlled and protective gear is worn, such as helmets, gloves and

At other times a bag will be used for practicing kicks, jabs and punches. Although you might feel awkward and unfit at first, it will not be long before your health and fitness get beter and skill level improves, along with your frame of mental powers.

People who practice MMA feel and look healthier, but there are far more benefits than the actual side. While many think of martial arts as violent, in the mainstream it is used as self-defense. It does not
encourage violence but teaches the student how to control anger and how to use self-control and restraint.

Students are taught self-discipline and the rigors of training builds character and self-confidence, which ultimately reduces temper induced rages that can sometimes be the cause of many street fights. This confidence carries over into everyday life and as a result Mixed Martial Arts students tend to be become better people than they were.

Mixed Martial Arts training teaches you that you must control the powers that you have had the privilege of learning and never use it recklessly or without thought.
Students are also taught that before any success is achieved they will fail many times and that practiced and perseverance is the key. This is a valuable lesson to learn and will sometimes carry over into other endeavors the student undertakes.

Furthermore, the training teaches you that every person is responsible for his own actions and must understand and abide by the given rules. This kind of training improves one's actions in life as well as in martial arts training and tournaments. Many of these arts build a spiritual life into the training, with courtesy, self-control, perseverance and integrity emphasized in the classes. So much so that many Christian Church units are running Mixed Martial Arts classes for their youth organizations due to the
character building characteristics in martial arts training that are also much a part of Christian beliefs.

Given all this, it is no wonder that so many parents are enrolling their children in Mixed Martial Arts classes today. They find their children's health shape improve, something their child's peers sometimes miss. And they also witness their children's mindset, attitudes to life and self-improvement, respect and courage all improve as well.

Anyone who trains in Karate, Jujitsu, Tae Kwon Do or any of the arts will gain these benefits. If you have any desire to improve your body and psychic powers at the same time with only one activity, then martial arts is something you ought to seriously study. You don't just get in shape physically, but also mentally and spiritually. No gym exercises can compare. All across the world, adults are joining dojos and thoroughly enjoying the many benefits of Mixed Martial Arts.

The perfect warrior, is all combined.
MMA has become a huge global phenomenon over a short space
of time, and followed by more and more, what most people seem to forget do is that MMA is certainly not a new sport! Throughout the ages, different styles of martial arts, boxing and wrestling have competed against each other to see which style is best. Unarmed combat sports were common  in Roman times and in ancient Greece, Egypt, India, Thailand and Japan.
MMA today combines various martial arts. Rather than fighters being
highly skilled in just one martial art, MMA fighters know several to be an effective fighter. A successful MMA fighter is able to punch, block and kick using kick-boxing techniques, grapple like a wrestler and perform
submissions  judo- Jiu Jitsu style.

This allows them to carry on fighting even if they are out of their comfort zone. MMA fighters need to know aspects of many martial arts to be successful. Bruce Lee pioneered combining elements of different martial arts to adapt to any style, depending on the opponent. But that dosnt mean hes the father of MMA.  Hes shurely part of it, no doubt.
Remember that MMA was considered as a new addition for the 2004 Olympics under the banner Pankration,(ancient Greek name for a combined wrestling and boxing ) what happend with that, would be nice to get some golden medalions, however, becouse of a vast number of new sports suggested, our sport was not introduced, instead they did some girlyfluf sport, can you believe it.
Dont get me wrong i LOVE seeing girls do sport, especialy girls MMA. Girls you rock, keep it up, hopefuly in some near future we will go Olympics.
Like most of you know im a real hardcore MMA lover, so if i can get more people to join and practis the sport for bether, the problem is that sooo many scools rise up and claim to teach the sport right, hmm it might be, im not saying its not, but mostley if your new they dont realy take the time to teach you the basics.
How many learned the basics in a rush, and not realy getting it down right, so it troubled them i their grow just becouse the trainer had a full , already advanced class and had more time for them than you, believe me its like 70%, thats why most stop after a month or 3, or some have to corrigate their style after a few years becouse it aint right, lost time.
Ok, it took myself some time too, but i had  a great training  becouse the trainer realy had time to teach me and 4 other guys, ther where not so much students, lucky us,  lately my cousens want to train and get into the MMA world and they asked me what to do , how to train and such , and as the youth these days want it all as easy as possible, like playing a playstation game or so, they asked me if the info they saw online was accuret. pffffffffff,, online?...
I was always thought that one goes to te gym and sweat, cry , bleed  and thats training. but when i checked the net out it shoced me how much crap they sell online, its unbelieveble, from the like 38 training programs i reviewd only 3 stood out, and Jeff Joslin´s  MMA Quick Start Program is a leading one, its easy to understand and very detailed, like you have a trainer next to you , just for you, wow, whats better than that.
My cousens enjoyd id and still do , the beauty of it all they realy learnd MMA skills and not just some bla bla , no real skills, and they got good at it to, and thats just in 6 weeks they still have 6 weeks to go to complete the program.
My advise after seeing this, anyone can follow Jeff´s training and it realy pays off, you know what just get a coppy for your self, follow the program and finnish the 12 weeks program, then come back and tell me if it wasnt good for you...
Go get your coppy NOW...and LIVE your MMA dream.

Life´s short, dont spend it thinking  instead of doing.
