Our Austin MMA classes are a mix of Kickboxing, Jiujitsu, Muay Thai, and wrestling. We have taken the most effective and useful techniques from these arts and brought them together. Whether you are looking to be a cage fighter, or just looking to learn some skills while getting in great shape, this class will be perfect for you!
Austin MMA Training Principles
The system that we use at Impact Martial Arts is based on the 4 ranges of combat. The distance between you and your opponent dictate the techniques that are effective. The ranges are:
- Stand Up Grappling
- Ground Fighting
We train to recognize and control which range we are in. Everything is based on position. Our goal is to teach our students to put themselves in the best position to be successful. In a self defense situation, the best way to defend yourself is to avoid the situation in the first place. This is the first step. Unfortunately, this is not always possible, but that would be the best position. The worst position would be someone sitting on you punching your head. We work on getting out of this position and back up to our feet a lot. The better the position, the more options you have. Options are good! The priority is being able to get back to a standing position so that you have the option to fight (if necessary) or run. Self defense is all about getting home safely. The class will teach you the best techniques to use at the right time in order to do that. Improve your position until you are safe.
MMA for Fitness
Mixed martial artists are among the most fit athletes in the world. You can achieve this level of fitness when you put together our training regimen with a healthy diet. We are here to help you with that. Another of our goals, along with helping Austin be safe, is helping people to lead healthy lives. Self defense is usually references physical attackers, but this is not even in the top ten leading causes of death. That list includes heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and many other things that can be helped with diet and exercise. Call us at (512) 257-3333 or use the contact box to the right. We are ready to work with you in our Austin MMA classes!
