Mixed Martial Arts In Burnaby
Mixed Martial Arts has become a household name for martial arts these days with events like the Ultimate Fighting Championships and Bellator attracting what seems to be more attention that mainstream boxing. What people fail to recognize is that the basis for all mixed martial arts is the traditional martial arts program such as ours. However; there is no denying the popularity of the sport that has evolved into a martial art of its own. Notable high-level taekwondo blackbelts in mixed martial arts are Benson Henderson, Anderson Silva and Anthony Pettis. Even the commentator Joe Rogan is a blackbelt in taekwondo and Brazilian jiu jitsu.
Our Mixed Martial Arts Class in Burnaby is a high energy class in which adult practitioners will engage in Kickboxing practice (Muay Thai), learn Judo/wrestling techniques, and learn how to defend themselves from the ground with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques. We keep this program strictly for adults because we believe the best foundation for kids and teens is a proper foundation in a traditional martial arts such as Taekwondo. Our mixed martial arts class is a great way to get trained like a cage fighter without the bruises!
Currently our adult taekwondo members and adult Brazilian jiu jitsu members can take advantage of attending the mixed martial arts class once a week and put all their skills together. The idea with this is to help our current students develop their skills in a practical and martial sport setting. Respect and courtesy in this class is always paramount.
