Ultimate Fighting Training Options

To train as an Ultimate Fighter or mixed martial artist you have a few different options. Whether you want to ease into a few different styles, or try to go full throttle, here are some important options to consider:

1. Train Jujitsu. One excellent way to introduce yourself to one aspect of ultimate fighting is by beginning to train jujitsu. Here you will learn the ground game which is very important in mixed martial arts. Not only the various aspects of wrestling will be covered, but also choke holds, submissions, locks and take downs will be covered. You will also get a taste of the endurance aspect to the sport. Jujitsu is incredibly draining. Being on the ground can take a lot out of you and during your jujitsu sparring sessions you'll soon realize how important cardiovascular training is and what it really feels like to be exhausted during a fight.

2. Train Muay Thai. By training Muay Thai you'll learn different strikes and all the different kicks used in the stand up game of Ultimate Fighting. It's an excellent way to perfect your stand up, not only learning offensive moves, but learning how to effectively defend and deflect strikes, kicks, and in close knees. Some people will choose boxing to train their stand up game, but Muay Thai gives a more rounded and realistic approach to what it will be like fighting as an Ultimate Fighter.

3. Train at a Mixed Martial Arts school. There are more of these beginning to pop up and for one wanting a well rounded approach to mixed martial arts and Ultimate Fighting, this could be an excellent option. Here you'll learn all aspects of the game, stand up, ground game, striking, punching, kicking, elbows, knee's and so forth. Some schools may have separate Muay Thai or Jujitsu classes you can attend as well.
