The gladitorial combat sport known as mixed martial arts (MMA) is growing popular day by day. Whereas once kids used to collect baseball cards they are now surfing to find out who the greatest pound for pound fighter in the world is. A fast growing sport, appealing to the aggressive nature of most alpha males, MMA is becoming one of the most researched subjects in the world. Websites, Pay-per-view UFC events, and clothing companies such as Tap Out, are promoting MMA as a healthy expression of combat. Although the primary components of MMA consist of conditioning, grappling, striking with extreme martial arts such as brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai making up most fighters’ arsenals; as with any challenging sport demanding nothing but absolute perfection diet plays an important role.

Most fighters employ the five proportionate meals a day method in order to boost their rate of metabolism. This proves extremely helpful when having to cut weight before a fight. Another tact is to maximize protein and to reduce refined sugar intake in order to better recovery times in the event of sustaining injuries. The best examples of meats rich in protein that are used by several amateur MMA fighters include tuna and chicken, as white meat proves to be less fatty and more nutritious than red meat. Additionally most MMA athletes do their best to maximize fluid intake as cutting weight for fights leave them severely dehydrated. These dietary tips also can also be applied to people interested and/or participating in martial arts to simply shed a few pounds.

An extremely competitive sport, MMA requires specific direction and supervision. The dietary tips mentioned above are a start but for proper guidance MMA Classes are essential; offered at Lenexa, Kansas. For further information regarding such classes consult us.

      I’m sure there is a style that beats muay thai, but maybe not besuace it is better but rather besuace it plays on muay thai’s weaknesses. I doubt there is any one ultimate style, every one i know of has primary focuses, so as long as you are trained in a style that exploits the primary weakness of a style you can beat the mainstream of the figters in the style. As for what you are saying about muay thai stomping throgh the others, the only reason it would do that is besuace the other fighters were unskilled or only focused on their favorite moves i.e. TKD focuses on kicks, muay thai kicks legs out, an unskilled aikido person might only rely on whatever type of grapples and throws they do rather than doing strikes and taking advantage of the situation when they can do whatever it is they do, I’ve watched a lot of muay thai wins over other styles and all the guys in the other styles were just trying to focus on their favorite moves. you said somethin a flying kick if your kick is in the air, IMHO it is going to be a heck of a lot weaker than a grounded kick besuace you have nothing to get leverage and push off with. I’ve had people do flying kicks on me and they all just felt like pushes besuace basicly the people were just pushing off me, while if you are on the ground you have something keeping you in place so your hit goes forward instead of sending you backwards and I’m not pretending to be an expert this is all just simple logic. back to the thing about no best styles some of my friends can beat friends i cant beat in a fight, but i can beat the firends who beat the other friends I.E. my techniques keep distance and use my opponents momentum against them, my friend nathan is a lot stronger than me and stands up straight for most of his moves until he gets yme to the ground, so he has a good strong base and i cant do didly squat once on the ground his strength and groundfighting skills beat me. another friend, ryan, uses his weight against people. he weighs almost twice as much as me, so while he tries to use his weight to bring me down he does things like launching himself forward at me, so i pull and he falls flat on his face and i choke him out but my friend nathan pushes so he just gets bowled over and ryan just uses his weight instead of strength (this is a 280 lb guy, nathan is 170, I’m 160, once he is on top of us we dont stand a chance) to roll nathan on his side then just puts all his weight down which puts a ton of pressure on nathans chest and nathan taps out. ryan cant get me on the ground so i ebat ryan, ryan beats nathan, nathan beats me. get it kind of?EDIT: and each of us has our favorite moves . mine is the rear naked chokehold, nathans is an arm bar, and ryans is that chest one i was tellin u about.
