    some Q&A from TriPinTaZ, the thread starter:

    MMA is the style, it is a mixture of many forms.

    Next belt is Black Belt
    You watch too much TV.


    Let me be more detailed. I got my high red in the Mixed Martial Arts figghting style from USA Black Belt Champions School of Martial Arts. I forgot how detailed I had to be for OT.
    Mixture of Muay Thai, Kenpo, Jiu Jitsu, and Kung Fu as well as a few other things mixed in. (not wushu lol)
    Or style is mixed with a heavy core in Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu. I really can't say its one specific style. I did not know you could not have a belt system in this style. I wonder what the other 1000 Black belts in the system across the nation are going to do if they find out their belt is a fake!:noes:








    lol

    i fucking hate places like this where the instructors are supposedly masters in 10 different martial arts styles. i'm going to go to the local LA boxing here once my hand gets better to see if i can teach a class. i basically just want to be able to use their facilities for free. their muay thai coaches credentials are like "trained with a guy that trained with chuck norris for 15 years"

    i love it how they all hold "black belts" in 20 different martial arts

    and they're not just "black belts", they're "USA Blackbelt Champion black belts"

    Some of the credentials under their names are :hsugh:

    4 time marathon runner?

    Ok, please teach me some striking/grappling with your superior running abilities. Hell, I shouldn't even say superior, she could have entered 4 times in some shitty marathon and come last place every time, it doesn't even say where she placed. Fuck sakes.

    this is probably an example more of the student's perspective than the school's.

    I teach at a school where we combine elements of various martial arts, but we don't CALL it mixed martial arts, and we award belts in our style, however I know some of my students tell people they train mixed martial arts.

    it's a buzzword these days.
