    MMA Self-Defense Classes In Virginia Beach


    MMA an advancement of the traditional martial arts has gained immense popularity for Self-Defense over the past decade. It is a regulated full body contact combat sport between two fighters that are highly trained in different forms of Martial Arts. However, you don't have to be a pro to use MMA for self defense.  MMA employs striking and grappling techniques from different martial arts perspective such as Jiu Jitsu, Thai boxing, karate, boxing and many others.

    However, a million dollar question arises; does MMA make a formidable defense system? Analyzing street encounters of a few MMA fighters and the number of incidents coming across the news feed, one can give a resounding “yes” as an answer. Someone trained in MMA has the advantage over their oponents should they find themselves needing to defend themselves, in the street, ally or any where else you may run into agressors.

    So what does make MMA such a lethal and effectual form of martial arts? Listed below are the top 10 reasons that will provide you an in-sight into the techniques and forms of MMA that reinforce your self defense mechanisms. Amateurs and professionals alike should tweak their training approach when it comes to self-defense.
        

    1.    Realistic Techniques Training– During a street fight mostly the opponent is non-compliant and aggressive therefore is only focused on bringing about maximum damage to you only. This is where the MMA training gets handy and the exposure to a controlled environment trains you for real life scenarios. A combat athlete practices his or her kicks, blocks, punches, takedowns and grappling techniques in the ring and can easily exploit an overly aggressive opponent.
        

    2.    Superior Strength and Training – As MMA is a full contact combat sport, competing and winning a fight requires you to be in top-notch shape. The stress factor against other competent fighters is intense during a fight and only fighters with superior levels of strength, speed and determination can endure this pressure. This trains those individual for real life situations where essential element to survive a violent encounter is being faster, stronger and outlasting your opponent.
        

    3.    MMA fighters are mentally prepared – Fighting is a rough business and often it takes a physical and psychological toll on the people engaged in a fight, whether in ring or out on the street. Therefore, repeated exposure of an MMA fighter to these stressful situations prepares him to handle pressure more effectively. As MMA fighters train in a regulated environment, they are more experienced and have a distinct advantage over in-experienced people when dealing with real life, full contact violence.
        

    4.    Guarding yourself when attacked – Before engaging in a fight, it’s highly likely that you are attacked and the first to fall. Therefore, it’s essential to know how to guard and restrict any damage to yourself. Techniques such as Arm Bar from closed guard position, Kimura from Jiu Jitsu art form and Guillotine are some highly effective techniques when executed properly by a MMA fighter. They tend to cause muscle, tendon and ligament damage and even dislocation of bones – truly lethal in self-defense.
        

    5.    Giving you an upper hand over the aggressor – Watching a UFC fight, it’s highly likely to see a fighter grab his or her opponent’s leg and simply take him down. The MMA fighters practice this particular technique and when executed in a street fight, it can end you up in a better position than the aggressor. From this ending position, you can go for other BJJ techniques such as anaconda, peruviana and others.
        

    6.    Self Defense Against Punches – Unlike boxing and kickboxing, in real life situations you don’t have any gloves to protect yourself against the punches. MMA fighters are therefore trained to evade being hit. Dodging the punches by leaning to the sides and back is effective when dealing with an aggressive opponent. This drains down his energy giving you substantial advantage over him, a punch to the jaw then can be fatal.
        

    7.    Self Defense against Kicks – Self Defense kicks are crucial to keep the aggressor away from you. While hitting a high kick can be extremely effective but an oblique kick is equally useful. Practicing this technique in the gym and rehearsing it repeatedly would automatically enable you put up a decent street fight. Wearing shoes can increase the power of the strike substantially.
        

    8.    Defending yourself against Knees and Elbows – An attacker wouldn’t really care about safety precautions and in close combat, a kick from the knee or elbow may tear the skin off the body producing heavy bleedings. MMA fighters are familiar with such life threatening situations and they can maneuver through them by stepping back or dodging.
        

    9.    Techniques are safe to apply – Most techniques in other forms of martial arts are low intensity and can be injurious to your own self without the protective gear on. However, in MMA fighters are trained to deal with more real life situations and hence be more effective in a real violent encounter.
     

    10.  Techniques applicable for a range of situations – Real attacks by an adversary are chaotic, sudden, and unexpected. Therefore, countering techniques that match a specific attack are likely to fail. MMA fighters are prone to such attacks and apply conditioned responses in such situations.

    Mixed Martial Arts & Muay Thai Kickboxing are the most recommended and widely used martial arts technique for self-defense. It not only equips you with the knowledge and skill-set for defending yourself but also trains you as an individual against violent fights. However, it’s recommended that you perform these techniques in a controlled and regulated environment before stepping into the real world. OutFox MMA has been training complete beginners, intermediate students and even professional competitors.  We offer intro classes, intermediate classes and advanced classes.  Contact us today to find out how you can get started with your 30 Day Free Trial.

  • Kickboxing Classes Virginia Beach

    Kickboxing Classes Virginia Beach

    Techniques of Muay Thai have been forged over centuries through warfare and fighters that had the ability to dismantle their opponents. An art is time-tested and can be highly effectual in situations requiring self-defense. The proper execution of these techniques was crucial, as it wasn’t a matter of winning or losing in ancient times but rather a means of survival in the battlefield.

    Listed below are the top 15 reasons why you should opt for training Muay Thai Kickboxing Classes in Virginia Beach, because it's effective and lethal in real life self-defense situations.

    1. Brutal Techniques – To an outsider and untrained eye, Muay Thai seems to a brutal sport, which is quite true. However, the understanding of the art and learning the basics first would ensure you to develop a self-defense mechanism. The more advanced and vile techniques can be used to harm the opponent significantly.
    2. Core Workouts – Strength and Stamina workouts are essential elements in the Muay Thai training. The sport demands physical performance, hence a Muay Thai practitioner are fit and healthy individuals. In addition, having good endurance and stamina gives you an upper hand over the aggressor.
    3. No fancy techniques – Unlike other martial arts, Muay Thai doesn’t emphasize on fancy and supposedly effective techniques. Real life situations require quick thinking and a simple Muay Thai kick can knock the opponent down. Trying to utilize complicated techniques would require more effort and may even have adverse effects on you as well.
    4. Practicing with a sparring partner – In Muay Thai, you practice with a real opponent from the start of your training. Practicing new techniques and combos with your sparring partner will enhance your skill set significantly and will prepare you to face a real life aggressor or opponent.
    5. Short and Long Range Techniques – Muay Thai covers the need to protect yourself over short and long ranges. An attacker maybe kept at a distance using the jabs and the push kicks while for short-range techniques such as knee strikes or clinch can be highly effective against an in experienced and aggressive opponent.
    6. Blocking yourself using Elbows – Defending yourself using your elbows not only ensures safety for you but also can end up hurting your opponents as well as elbows are tougher than the knuckles. Muay Thai kick boxers can defend their face and can occasionally deliver powerful and quick blows to the opponents face.
    7. Training gives Self Confidence – Mostly people who tend to start a fight are mere cowards and would do so because they think they will win. A Muay Thai fighter has a good built and a straightened up posture, this significantly boosts his or her confidence. This disarms the opponent before the fight even begins and defending yourself becomes substantially simple.
    8. Training with physical objects – Other forms of martial arts training sessions can be held without a real opponent and just by throwing punches or kicks in the air. However, all Muay Thai techniques are thrown with full power and high speed. In addition, the training is conducted using physical objects such as punching bags, kicking pads, focus mitts or a real life opponent as well.
    9. Core muscles/bones are functional during training – A Muay Thai kick drives its power from the hip when thrown at the opponent. Also unlike other kicking arts, in Muay Thai the roundhouse kick uses shinbone rather than the foot. This shifted focus on other muscles help to deliver more power in the techniques and hence causing serious damage when in a real fight.

    10.Withstand Emotional Pressure – In most fights, the emotion or physical weakness takes a toll on the fighter bringing advantage to the opponent. However, Muay Thai kick boxers are emotionally stable. After understanding their abilities and withstanding their opponent’s strikes, these fighters are prepared to handle real life assaults.

    11.Extreme Guard Training – Guarding and Dodging your opponent’s punches and kicks is essential in a real life encounter. Therefore, Muay Thai pad men will help you understand the consequences of making a mistake by hitting you whenever you throw a technique ineffectively. They will take great joy in hitting you and would exploit every opportunity to do so unlike traditional arts.

    12.Exploiting your opponent’s weaknesses – Thai boxing also has a clinch from where most skills can be applied to weaken and disorient the opponent. During a fight, the aggressor doesn’t focus and concentrate and would soon make mistakes. A Thai Boxer is trained to exploit those opportunities and get them to his advantage.

    13.Realistic Grappling Techniques – Unlike Judo, Ju-Jitsu and other grappling based arts, Muay Thai uses a more realistic approach of taking down your opponent. Instead of grabbing the clothing, you use the skeletal framework of the opponent making you use your leverage instead of physical strength.

    14.Kicks thrown to the legs – Real life fighting scenarios can happen anywhere anytime therefore having the convenience to use a technique is integral. Unlike Taekwondo or Karate, Muay Thai powerful kicks are thrown at the adversary’s legs instead of weight height.

    15.Disciplined Fighter – Apart from the fighting techniques and skills, a Muay Thai fighter is disciplined. With intense and regular training in the gym, the kick boxer is prone to panicking and would handle the situation swiftly.
