MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
Mixed martial arts (MMA) combines techniques from all combat styles to create a complete fighting system. Our MMA program at Unite, is comprised of four key elements of MMA: Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and Wrestling. Many would argue this makes Mixed Martial Arts the best self-defence system, when combined these programs offer the perfect mix of Combat Sports and gives each student the conditioning and technical skill necessary to compete in MMA
MMA is the most complete fighting system as an experienced Mixed Martial Artist is comfortable anywhere a fight goes. They can fight on the ground, in the clinch, and standing up. They understand submissions and can defend against and execute them.
For those with goals that are not aligned with competing, MMA is still a great self defence tool and a way of building confidence, self discipline and fitness.

It also emphasizes joint locks, chokeholds, and other submission holds to defeat an opponent. BJJ practitioners strive to gain an advantageous position and then apply a variety of techniques to force an opponent to submit or become incapacitated. It can be practiced in both self-defence and sport contexts. then realize that the only way to improve is to continuously work on it everyday and remind yourself that you have a lot to learn.
