Learning Basic MMA Fighting Techniques

  1. 1. ==== ====For A Great MMA Training Routine Visit: ====Most MMA fighters today have learned to fight in more than one style. This makes them moreeffective fighters both in and out of the ring. Here are some of the basic fighting styles that manyprofessional mixed martial arts fighters use in combat:Clinch fighting style - This technique is an integral part of the MMA basics. Such style allows youto reduce the efficiency of your opponents kicks, punches, knees, elbows, or any attackcombinations. Clinching style simply means tying your opponent up to restrict his movements.This fighting method is also a good way to take an opponent to the ground through a takedown ora throw. A clinch can be done either while standing up or on the ground.Stand-up fighting techniques - Such include a fighters ability in punching, kicking, elbowing, andkneeing attacks. Stand-up fighting very well trains an MMA fighter in multiple array of disciplines,such as karate, Kendo, kickboxing, Kung-Fu, Muay Thai, and boxing. The disciplines that youwould want to focus on will depend on your interests. But generally, great MMA fighters have anextensive knowledge of at least three disciplines: kickboxing, Muay Thai and boxing.Sprawl-and-brawl style - This method is a combination of strikes standing up and various sprawltechniques to take down an opponent. Boxers, kick-boxers, and even full contact karate fighters alluse some form of sprawl-and-brawl MMA fighting skill.Ground fighting style - This is another important element of MMA fighter basics. This is wheresubmissions usually take place. If an MMA fighter does not know how to do a submissiontechnique and how to defend against submission attempts, then his MMA career will probably endsoon. The most important discipline you would have to learn for a ground game is the BrazilianJiu-Jitsu. This arts main focus is on submissions and submission defense, as well as maintaininga dominant ground control positions.Submission hold or grapple - Such style is used to pin an opponent to the ground until the refereeis able to call the match. This fighting technique was originally taught in Army Combat, and thenhas been incorporated to MMA fighting style because of its efficiency. On the other hand, an MMAfighter will also need to learn how to counter this move so he can break free easily.So if you are really serious about becoming an MMA fighter, you should equip yourself with allthese skills. But remember that such basic training doesnt end there, there are more work thatyou must do to be a top-notch fighter.For more information on mixed martial arts training techniques, kindly visit
