Thread: MMA league question

  1. #1

    Default MMA league question

    Hi guys,
    The club i train at is talking about entering the mma league this year (i believe it starts in september), and i was wondering what the standard was ? I'd quite like to have a go but ive only been training a year ,and im not the fittest by a long shot . Would i be massively out of my depth ,or do you think its worth a pop ? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
    cheers

    Mate, am 33 with a bit of shit belly and after being an 18-30s rep fir five years my body is knackered lol, but i trained for a short while before entering, just do it mate, no head shots and one 5 min round you can't go wrong, surely u can fight, wiggle, moves your hips fir 5 mins??!! If I can, anyone can

    see you in September :d

    Remember that you'll be fresh and rested for the competition. As people have said, its only a five minute round per fight, and if you're really knackered you don't have to fight twice (although its worth it if you can).

    I did the one at York Hall last May and it was a great experience, I even had Grant Waterman reffing my fights which was cool :-)

    Cheers for the advice people.whilst my first thought was to try lose the "middle-age spread" around my stomach before competing,i think id be really pissed off with my self if i dont at least have a go ,so having read your replies im gonna give it a whirl.

    Dont worry about the weight loss so much mate, You cant win the bouts unless you submit the other guy, so having a six pack, popeye arms etc dont mean for anything.

    But the MMA league DVD mate, have a look at the fights, will give you a good heads up on how it all works and all.

    3 main things about MMA league, Triangle, Arm Bar and Guilotene seems to be the weapons of choice, learn to defend those, work the escapes, and you 90% there mate!

    good luck! - My site has a ton of instrucitonal vids on for these, as I lost my MMA league bouts to the above! lol so am always studying!

    And just remember to keep your punches below the head......I learnt that the hard way

    But like everyone has said, just give it a go, it's good fun
