Mixed Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts

Slava and Opponent

Over the past twenty years, Mixed Martial Arts has extensively expanded on the self defense and fighting scene. As a combat sport, MMA incorporates all facets of self-defense without weapons, such as: Jujitsu, Boxing, and wrestling. These forms of fighting has ties to the military, which has developed its own Martial Art: SAMBO (an acronym in Russian that means self-defense without weapons). It was created to develop and improve hand-to-hand combat skills. The philosophy behind MMA and SAMBO can be understood as a strategic form of fighting that uses quick and decisive moves in order to achieve control over one’s opponent. It also follows a very strict moral code which was designed not only to maintain respect between opponents, but to also meticulously train the student how to effectively utilize techniques thrown into any given situation. At Golden Gloves Fitness gym, our MMA and SAMBO trainer Slavam, in Woodbridge (York Region), uses the unique multitude of martial arts and fighting techniques to develop our members’ confidence and capabilities of self-defense. Through the training of mind, body, and spirit, our students learn how to diffuse grappling or locks (head or arm locks), and how to prevent impact from different striking positions. Our MMA and SAMBO classes in the Vaughan area are often looked at as “freestyle-wrestling”, which calls for physical fitness as well as a strategic mind. At Golden Gloves Fitness we will place you in various positions and teach you the most tactical and professional ways to escape from them and regain control of the situation. You will learn counterattack and retaliation moves that are used in MMA rings, and we will teach you the most effective way to reverse attacks and win the flight.
