The Youth Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program teaches the same striking and grappling techniques utilized in the Adult MMA program and Mixed Martial Arts competitions. The Youth MMA program develops the punching, kicking, and ground fighting skills of the younger students to prepare them for the Adult MMA program or youth competitions. Youth MMA students who wish to test their MMA skills may enter Grappling competitions and/or Kickboxing fights (with a parent’s permission).
The Youth Mixed Martial Arts program is also a great complement to a young wrestler’s training in the off-season. The ground fighting skills taught in the Youth MMA program are based on Greco-Roman Wrestling, Submission Grappling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) and can help to enhance any wrestler’s skill level.
The conditioning provided by the workouts in the Youth Mixed Martial Arts program also make it an excellent form of exercise to increase a child’s overall fitness level.
