Thread: MMA = ?

MMA training equals learning striking, grappling, take downs and submissions AND
how to apply them all together. For example using a kick to set up a take down to using ground and pound to set up a submission.
Alot of MMA schools besides teaching the seperate styles have some sort of class they call MMA or CSW or freestyle or whatever where the approach is to use it all together.

1.) The instructor is not listed and neither are his credentials
2.) Glenroy Browne does not have a record on FC Fighter's Data Base (now I know this isn't the definitive source but it is one of the best out there.)
If you're going to take a martial art (any martial art) you should be able to verify who the instructor is very quickly and easily.

Aw poop! Okay, I'm going to suggest running like the wind from this club. I wouldn't normally make a second post in a row but this is the link that opens up from the 'store' portion of the website!

EXACTLY. These MMA classes simply teach the effective use of multiple styles of combat in a singular engagement.
Allow me to explain this mathematically if I may.
(West Coast Stance [boxing] + Sub wrestling) = MMA
(Muay Thai + Brazilian Ju Jitsu) = MMA
(WestCoast), (SubWrestling), (MT), (BJJ) = Fighting Styles
(West Coast Stance [boxing] + Sub wrestling) =/= (Muay Thai + Brazilian Ju Jitsu)
WE CAN LOGICALLY DETERMINE THAT
MMA =/= Fighting Style
I can break it down some more, but I think this is pretty clear and simple to understand.

ALso check out the Fang Shen Do thread for more insight into Pyramid Schemes and MAs. These guys where selling vitamins like it was going out of style for a while.
Any thoughts on my above post though? I'd be very leery about taking MMA classes from someone who isn't listed on one of the top sites for MMA tracking. Most fighters are tripping over themselves to get their fights up on FCFighter or Sherdog.
PS - My last opponent had the fight on FCFighter before I was even home, and he lost the fight!

I asked someone about this club on another forum, one of the guys there claimed to train with him once and said that Glenroy Browne is a very good instructor. Im going to Email Glenroy Browne asking for his lineage under ALL those arts he claims to know. I'll let you guys know what happens.

I'm not saying the guy isn't good I'm just saying do some research. There is another guy I know who works as a cop. He can't compete by virtue of his job but his credentials are top notch.

The fact that he lists Aikido as part of his grappling teaching looks bad, VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY bad.Is Wayne Brady gonna have to choke a bitch?
