What are your views on the first UFC GYM?

Recommended Posts

I've been searching other forums around the web to see what people's views were on the UFC GYM and some people didn't like that idea of a UFC GYM opening up. People think its just a spot for people to look and act tough and to boast that they are MMA fighters or MMA students. I think its a brilliant idea and hope that MMA gets more recognition and that people have a better perspective aboutthe sport. What are your views?

MMA is only for regulated supervised indoor events held for profit, please dont try to use MMA on the street, you will be stabbed, shot, pepper sprayed, tazered, beaten with pipes or other blunt object, as long as the trainers encourage the students to keep clean in the streets, if you hurt someone using MMA techs, that will only motivate them to shoot you down or worse, as long as the trainers tell the students to stay out of trouble outside the gym

where the hell did this come from? I'm talking about the UFC GYM. Don't give me a lecture about this **** too, because I'm not a fool that would do such a thing. I asked what your your views about the gym that is opening up.

well the people not liking it seem to have a very weak opinion... i see nothing wrong with these UFC gyms opening all over the U.S in the future.. especially because of how top level these gyms will be.. i cant wait till one opens in miami.. i checked out the first one that opened... and the facility was amazing..

Yeah the facility looks awesome. I joined the gym three days ago and the guy that instructs at the gym told me that one of cung li's and frank mirs muay thai instructor will be there to train people. He also said there are surprise trainers, which could be goo or bad. Do you think a fighter will be coming out of one of these gyms anytime soon?

"ok mom..." Theres always going to be the losers that do that stuff. just the same with every sport though. someones always going out trying to challenge people at something, anything because they think theyre better.

 

but on topic i think itd be a great idea. it could bring a lot of interest from new future fighters. id sure be interested.. i mean all i can find around me are a few karate/ju jitsu centers and uh, yea thats it. itd be great to have a real mma place.

 

disclaimer: i know there are a lot of mma gyms, but none in my immediate area

I dont really get 'Training MMA' from the start. I train Muay Thai and there is a lot to take in, in that one martial art, I think I would be really difficult to get any good skills if one week your banging the pads and the next week your trying some BJJ (its takes long enough to get co-ordination while your holding the pads for someone never mind anything else lol), I would imagine progress is very slow trying to learn a 2 or 3 martial arts at the same time.

 

Mike Goldberg said at UFN that kids will be training MMA and this will make some amazing fighters, I think the best fighters will master 1 martial art and train others for defensive purposes. If your a full time fighter obviously you get more time train in another martial art so before anyone rips into me, I know most UFC fighters have a high level of more than 1 martial art.

 

On the point of people bragging btw, I know this lad who referred to himself as a 'MMA fighter', as it turned out he trianed for 6 weeks at a new MMA gym near his house, so I can see that people will actually train for the purpose of bragging - losers I call them.

I don't see why UFC - being the most reciognized MMA brand, shouldnt lend their name to some MMA gyms.

 

There are two MMA gyms in Glasgow, and I'm thinking of joining one of them, largely to keep fit, learning a sport I love. I studied karate as a teenager, and would love to transfer that to Muay Thai or juijitsu.

 

Both gyms websites make it very clear that they heartily encourage students to have at least a basic grounding in boxing/kickboxing/juijitsu/wrestling, or preferably a combination thereof, before they start joining for full on MMA sparring classes etc.

 

In fact, most of the classes are specialised, with classes in juijitsu, striking, wrestling for MMA etc, with the level of training and the specialisation up to the student.

 

As for losers who train for the purposes of bragging - there will always be such idiots, the ones who work out in your local gym decked out in Gold's gym gear. Indeed MMA is full of them, purely because of the nature of the sport.

 

When I studied karate, we were told not to use it except in exceptional self defense circumstance, and having been in a few brawls, all the smooth moves and good form is utterly no substitute for surprise, numbers, a broken bottle, a knife or whatever. Any idiot who starts a fight and says 'I'll kick yourt teeth in coz im a cage fighter' will be swiftly destroyed by your average bam...

That sounds good, the many 'Cage Fighter', 'MMA' gyms in Leeds seem to treat MMA like its a single entity and not Mixed Martial Arts, obviously guys trying to make money out of something thats popular. The gyms you mention sound much better.

I live here in concord, ca where the very first gym is opening. the price they are offering for every thing they offer is unbeatable. the price for everything is cheaper than me siging up for a bjj class. and beyond the mma training there is your typical weight steam room and even classes for non mma fans like hip hop dance womens self defence or yoga. they have a nutritionist telling you what is healthy for you to eat and they have all your healthy food all in there food bar. i was sold once i took one look inside. this gym will blow away any other gym in my area

The gym I go to is old school - mats, pads, a ring and some bags, no fancy steam rooms!

 

I agree its good for fitness, but to get good skills I think its better to start out with one martial art

I live fairly close to that concord Gymn and if I wasn't such a fat **** out of shape person with no time to train I would definately go there. However, it wouldn't be for me to become competitive or anything. I would do it simply to get in shape. It seems like it would be a great place to go for workouts and what not. However, who is running the school? What will the quality of the classes be like? To me, If I wanted to seriously train, I'd rather go the traditional route and learn one style of art and then incorporate other forms later on.

 

Also, the only concern I have is that A UFC gymn would attract the everyday jerk off that thinks they can kick everyone's **** because they watch UFC. I already hear nightmare stories about some ****** that walks into a BJJ place and thinks it's okay to slam your way out of everything or thinks he should be in the advanced class because he has some TKD experience. (Which funny enough I have a black belt in. LOL)

well you can start off with one martial art. just keep doing the jiu jitsu classes ,so it isnt that hard to figure out. they dont teach you all these things at the same time its your choice. take bjj until you think you have become good at then take some muay thai. also join some torunaments to boost your "resume".
