Learning Mixed Martial Arts In Melbourne For A Female

When I was a teenager I started becoming increasingly interested in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). I really liked the idea that training in MMA not only gave you a full body work out, but also taught you the most effective techniques that could be utilised in dangerous and potentially life threatening situations. It was not until my early 20s that I eventually made the decision to check out a self-defence seminar at a local gym. A year and half later I consider this to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am now training in four different styles of martial arts, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Progressive Krav Maga, and Boxing. I look forward every opportunity I get to practice these forms and better yet combine them together in MMA sparring.

To be honest at first for various reasons I was reluctant to head down to a Melbourne MMA gym. The first month of classes was tough and sometimes I felt as though I was barely able to keep up, although every day as my fitness improved and as I was able to remember and effectively perform more techniques I felt myself enjoying each class more than the last and becoming increasingly motivated to get back to the gym. All of the gym members were very friendly and helpful, even when the trainer was busy helping other members the senior students would assist me to develop good technique and also point out any areas for improvement.

A year and a half later on many of my friends have now decided come along and learn martial with me. After hearing about how much fun I was having, seeing how fit I was getting, and how much it improved many other aspects of my life, they realised that learning MMA Melbourne was very different from what they expected. It is a rewarding experience helping my friends to learn skills and techniques from a range of different styles and forms in the same way many senior members facilitated and encouraged my development throughout the year.
