The Ultimate Fighting Entertainment UFC

June 19, 2010 by

The last decade of the twentieth century saw the rise of a new popular sport that encompassed many attributes of ancient styles of unarmed hand-to-hand combat. This newly emerged sport was first referred to as “no hold barred” fighting. With the blending of styles that included not only wrestling and boxing but also various forms of oriental unarmed combat this new sport became known as Mixed Martial Arts.

The first MMA competitions enforced few rules and included both grappling and striking movements and used both arms and legs as offensive weapons of attack. The combat between opponents was allowed whether standing or on the ground. Primarily only such tactics as eye gouging and hair pulling were disallowed and even groin punches, while frowned upon, were not illegal. With MMA being described in the news media as “human cock fighting”, it might have been a short-lived sport had it not been for the creation of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) tournaments designed by the Californian Art Davie.

Davie, an advertising executive developed the idea from his association with Rorion Gracie, a teacher of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Being fascinated with the ability of these non-traditional fighters to defeat even high-ranking combatants of the traditional forms of unarmed combat, Davie developed WoW Productions (War of the Worlds). He then raised the funding for the first official MMA tournament and gained a contract with the new pay-per-view Semaphore Entertainment Group (SEG) to televise the event.

”The Ultimate Fighting Championship” aired on November 12, 2003 and became an instant hit. UFC1 drew 86,592 television subscribers who thrilled to the eight man elimination tournament that featured specialists in such diverse fighting forms as kickboxing, savate, karate, shootfighting, sumo, jiu-jitsu and boxing. Rorion Gracie’s brother Royce, a black-belt Brazilian jiu-jitsu fighter, took the first UFC tournament crown.

With the reputation as a violent, rule-less bloodfest, MMA and the Ultimate Fighting Championship came under harsh penalties from the lawmakers of many states and was, for a while, banned from pay-per-view television and some states entirely. However, the sport began to work with various United States sanctioning agencies to develop a safer competition environment. Various holds and maneuvers were banned and time limits were set on the individual rounds. By the end of the year 2000, UFC28 made its comeback under the sanctioning of the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board’s “Unified Rules”.

Opponents of this fighting sport applauded the new, restricted form of MMA as a safer sport despite the findings of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine that; “Knockout rates are lower in MMA competitions than in boxing. This suggests a reduced risk of traumatic brain injury in MMA competitions when compared to other events involving striking.” To date there has been only one fatality related to sanctioned UFC competition in the United States. This is a drastically lower rate than what has occurred in professional boxing.

Despite the troubled and controversial beginnings of MMA and the UFC, the sport continues to grow in popularity. Now televised in thirty-six countries, the UFC has grown offices in both Canada and the Unite Kingdom and are beginning to expand into the continent with the aim of creating a European UFC organization in the near future.

The UFC has recently absorbed the World Extreme Cage fighting organization and has developed corporate sponsorships that include such sports-promoting companies as Anheuser-Busch and Harley-Davidson motors.

Mixed Martial Arts Fighting, Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Fighting – Training Tips for Repetition Drilling of Techniques

June 19, 2010 by

When first learning a new mixed martial arts fighting technique whether at the fundamental level or the more advanced it is important that we chunk it down into smaller, easily learned units. Once easily assimilated chunks are obtained these must be practiced with repetition to learn them. However, just repeating them over and over again in a session has its limitations.

Studies on a simple nervous system have shown that any more than 10 repetitions of a task in a session does not result in any increase to retention, in addition, performing only one session of learning a new piece of material results in very little retention over a long period as those of you who have been involved in training for serious mixed martial arts fighting are well aware.

The most useful method of repetition drilling to gain the most effective retention is to spread the repetitions over a number of sessions.

A method that has shown a great deal of effect is to carry out 7 to 10 repetitions of a particular technique in a training session. And then carry out at least nine repeat review sessions over several days or weeks. The first repeat session can be within the same session. I would suggest near the end of the session. The following one a day after, then a week etc. The closer the review sessions are together the quicker the optimal retention is obtained.

Another common problem, that many of us experience in mixed martial arts fighting and Muay Thai Fighting, is that of boredom when training the number of repetitions required for drilling the techniques adequately. This is detrimental to retention as the learning process is seriously impaired when we are not concentrating.

Disguising the repetitions in drills, combinations and games that utilize the particular skill involved is a very practical way that will assist you to get around this problem and allow you to increase the versatility of game by drilling the techniques with different set ups, combinations or counters being used against them.

Another more fundamental strategy that I use, particularly in working through my Muay Thai Fighting, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts Fighting techniques, is to repetition the techniques as many times as I can until boredom is noticed, recording the number of repetitions performed in my training diary and then repeating the process in another training session. When using this strategy just develop a determined discipline to complete a predetermined number of repetitions. I would suggest a minimum of 60 spread over a 2 year period for maximum retention.

Bear in mind that this is for the learning and retention of a new technique, not the optimal refinement of it for the highest level of effectiveness that may be required for the rigors of competition in both mixed martial arts fighting and Muay Thai Fighting. This requires the development and sharpening of the various attributes required for optimal performance of the technique, such as: speed, timing, flow, balance, connectivity to the next move, variation adjustment, corrections in balance, preparedness for reaction to the opponent’s movement, etc.

Taking your mixed martial arts fighting skill to this level requires many more repetitions and exposing the performance of the technique to increasing levels of risk through controlled and on to random sparring.

To ensure the best learning of the technique start by learning and drilling the technique under totally cooperative conditions to get it right, this is the

retention period discussed above.

Once a good level of efficacy is obtained, then try to use the technique in controlled sparring conditions or controlled performance drills in which your training partner presents moderate problems to deal with. As your efficacy increases start to utilize it in your sparring, at first against less experienced opponents working up to opponents of higher levels.

Using this strategy for developing and drilling your techniques will not only enhance your game but also make repetition drilling far more enjoyable when training for mixed martial arts fighting..
