A lot of people ask me when they don’t have a local MMA gym whether they should make up their own training routine, or buy a fitness training program. Now before we get started this is not about the hardcore MMA training regiment that a fighter uses to get into the Octagon, and not even your local MMA orgranization. This is fitness in order to get into shape through MMA movements.

Every mixed martial arts fight begins on the feet so it’s a wonder why more fighters don’t develop devastating striking skills and look to lay their opponent out. Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of guys out there that have average to above average striking skills, but for all those guys there are twice as many who don’t take the time to get good at the stand up game. Amateur fighters are especially bad at this, because the level of talent isn’t as deep so they don’t see the devastating leg kicks or the fluid combinations.

Over at Jeff Joslin’s blog he wrote a terrific on a mount grappling drill. Most of us have experienced the basic grappling drill where you start off in a mounting position on top of your training partner. You then have a specific amount of time and the fighter on the bottom works to free themselves and the one on mount works to keep the mount position. When the time period is over the one who stayed in their starting position the most will win the drill. This is a pretty basic drill in any wrestling practice that yields a great deal of learning and understanding on the part of the wrestler’s in the drill.

It’s amazing to think that MMA was just a baby 10 years ago. MMA has moved from a little-known sport to a billion-dollar industry. The roots of this exploding sport is found in Brazil’s Vale Tudo and Japan’s Shoot-fighting. When the Ultimate Fighting Championships came on the scene in the early 90s, spectators got to witness fighters from different styles competing with no time-limits, no weight classes, and almost no rules. Since then, the UFC has risen to the top as the premiere organization in the sport. Rounds, referees, and safety rules have been created to make MMA a safe and legitimate combat sport.
