Once you decide that MMA is not right for you, give us a call

First of all, I would like to discuss what MMA really is.  A Tang Soo Do (Korean Martial Art) Master I work closely with once told me that all good Martial Artists do mixed martial arts.  The reason is because we take the best aspects of several different systems, and make one “Super System.”  So in that way, yes I do teach mixed martial arts.  However, MMA of today is definitely not that.  It consists of the brazilian jiu-jitsu (mostly ground fighting/grappling), some kick boxing and street fighting.  At Champion Martial Arts we do a combination of traditional Jujitsu, Ninjitsu, Taijitsu, Judo and Aikido.  Plus, we teach some Tae Kwon Do fancy kicks and some Karate Tournament sparring (light contact).  I guess it can be argued that both are mixed martial arts.

Now on to the topic of this blog post.  When I was growing up my dad (Professor Cary, 9th Degree Black Belt) would take us out and train on the concrete.  We didn’t have a mat, or a pad of any sort.  Back then I thought that was cool.  Wrestling around with the few adults that we had, ready to take on anyone.  Now that I am older and wiser, I would never do that again.  At the age of 10-14 years old I thought it was so great just to be a part of something.  Now I know that it is hard.  Really hard.  There’s a very good reason why we only had just a few students who stuck with that program.

An acquaintance of mine from the military had a close friend who was a Professional UFC fighter.  He was only able to compete in 4 matches.  His pay was $100,000 for the 4 fights, but he had to have over $50,000 of facial reconstructive surgery.  Did I mention he lost all 4 fights.

Basically, what I am getting at is that BJJ and MMA training is too destructive to the body.  If you want to be a professional cage fighter and have reconstructive surgery on your face after each fight, be my guest.  However, if you would like to learn a solid Martial Arts system that gives you the ability to still be able to go to work tomorrow, please give us a call.  Most MMA and BJJ systems have very low retention rates.  Unfortunately, most of these people who drop out say that they will never try the Martial Arts again.  That’s very sad to hear.

I am here to tell you that I can teach you the awesome stuff that you wanted to learn in the first place, give you a great workout, while allowing you to remain injury free.

Of course, if you do decide you want to be hardcore and become a fighter, we have a specialized program for you at our sister school here in Reno.
