I've been training with Icon around 3 weeks and i feel like I've found a second home (seriously.... I pretty much live there now). I was so nervous to start, especially as a woman, with no combat experience, in a male dominated environment; but the team and coaches are amazing, everyone is so encouraging, supportive and patient and it's just an awesome environment to stretch myself physically (both literally & figuratively) and mentally. Thanks Steve and all the guys and gals at Icon, you're an awesome bunch

Beginners guide to MMA

MMA is a sport that has recently gained popularity after decades of it being a very strengthening game. This means new people are becoming part of MMA and they would like to know more about it. You can always visit the Norwich MMA center, and we can guide you through it, but we are also going to guide today how to get started and become a world class MMA fighter. For this, you will have to understand and keep in mind one thing that “slow and steady wins the race.” You will have to take the training very seriously but very slowly in order to get you going.

Learning environment:

First things first, the learning environment of the person should always be productive, when it comes to MMA you need to make sure that you feel comfortable in your surroundings. Now that we have established your comfort, making friends with common goals and to practice with is the most important part, you don’t always have to make friends with someone your level because they might not have much to teach you, but as well as your trainer will teach, your partner can also help you understand. This means that having a partner that has already been through your path is a sure way to make progress.

Training exercises:

The exercises are a very important part of MMA training. This a core element that is going to prepare you physically, before we get on to that, make sure you are performing all exercises under the strict supervision, since you are a beginner, your body is still not prepared to endure the harshness, and this means that you need to start with small routines with a few minutes of rest for the body so that you are not endangering your body to wear and tear. The training exercises for the beginners are the special ones, and your trainer will be able to guide you properly through it, depending on your physical needs. Don’t be shy or hesitant when it comes to learning.

 

Building mental and physical endurance:

The MMA fighting is not just the physical strength building sport, but also you will learn many mental exercises that include but are not limited to thinking fast, strategizing in the littlest time possible and also understanding and predicting the next move of your opponent. The exercises and metabolic conditioning are going to help your body to develop the physical endurance, and meanwhile, all the training will lead to your mental training and how to endure all the toughness and hardship of the training. When you are training, keep one sure thing in mind, and that is to set your goals and aim.

Now that you know the basics we hope that you understand that you will not become a world class MMA fighter overnight, but if you do the workout and training with consistency, you will gain the benefits of health and also endurance that are the most important goals of any sport including MMA.
