The Sweet Science

A very ironic name for something that feels so painful, but the sweet science or ‘boxing’ is one of the most efficient and famous forms of MMA combat training. Boxing doesn’t only consist of punches, it’s an art that leads back to the 1600 BC and has since then incorporated the elements of sharpness and self-defense.

The basic rule for boxing is pretty simple, you have to hit without getting hit. The upper body mechanics of a boxer enable them to deliver punches and hits with such force, precision and speed that few will be enough to knock the component out. The main focus during this training is not solely on the arms and the shoulders but also the torso, legs and the foot movement that allows a boxer to move freely like a fluid in a small space.

Though boxing teaches intensive combat, it is also great for your fitness and health. It increases the ability of your lungs to take in air and also regulate the strength of your cardiovascular system.

Here’s a look at each body part and how their “water-health” correlates with what you do in the ring:

If you’re someone who’s looking for a discipline to help in dramatic weight loss in the healthiest way possible, boxing is the way to go. With its intensive training, you would not only be shedding off those pounds but also making muscle and increasing your body’s strength and ability to focus and act with precision.

Muay Thai

Developed over a thousand years for the protection of the people of Thailand, Muay Thai is one of the most skillful boxing and combat skills one can learn. Being one of the most effective out of all the martial arts disciplines, Muay Thai allows a person to transform into a machine with maximum precision, power and efficiency of not only the body but also the mind.

Unlike regular boxing, Muay Thai uses all the major muscle groups like legs, feet, arms and back to inflict the damage on the opponent with powerful punches and kicks that are delivered with grace. It is also known as the art of eight limbs as it uses all the body’s important 8 limbs.

It utilizes your full body weight and strengthens your core. If you’re looking for something that offers weight loss, muscle gain and a great combat skill learning, sign up!

Jiu Jitsu

Developed by the most renowned families of the world, the Garcie fighting family started the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which focuses on grappling the opponent rather than fighting them from a distance. The biggest advantage one has in this is the ability to control one’s movement and body weight to turn it into a weapon. It is one of the greatest disciplines for self-defense. Submission maneuvers are carried out with the help of the major limbs being the arms and legs to render the opponent defenseless. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is way more complicated and technical than it seems. A proper study technique backed by science goes into every move the person makes. If you want something that will help you tone your body and be in control of it, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great choice.

What are YOU looking to achieve?

The bottom line is, which MMA discipline is most suitable for you depends on what your objective and motivation is. If you’re not only looking for weight loss but want to be the best combat machine out there, practicing all disciplines of MMA is crucial. From Muay Thai to Brazilian Jui Jitsu, it takes a lot of effort and time. Being one of the purest forms of combat known to mankind, the combined effects of all the disciplines give you the ability to defend, attack, and protect yourself in each and every way.

Though it takes way more time and patience to learn since it involves all disciplines, MMA is a great choice for those looking for the ultimate workout and combat experience.
