What Is MMA Norwich?

Mixed Martial Arts or MMA norwich is a form of full body contact combat sport which witnesses fighters from various trainings coming together on a common platform to showcase the best qualities of their form of fighting. It provides a great opportunity for the fighters to compare their form of training with other opponents. Mixed Martial Arts can therefore be called as the best possible mixture of all the fighting techniques thus available which provides a fighter with the holistic development.

MMA norwich begin with the UFC

The Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC is the biggest American company that aims at promoting this sport of MMA norwich. It works on the rules laid down for the sport under the heading of Unified rules for Mixed Martial Arts. The president of this company is Dana White while its parent company Zuffa, LLC is handled by Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta.

The Mixed Martial Arts existed since the Ancient Olympics when the Greco-Roman concept of mixed fighting known as Pankration used to take place. This was in around 648 BC. These are also considered to be the roots of MMA norwich and the associated event UFC. The Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC essentially draws its inspiration from the Brazilian sport tournaments of vale tudo.

When UFC started it had to face a lot of criticism from the authorities and politicians. It was coined as barbaric and lawless. It was dismissed as being fatal and not valuing the human life due to the fatal injuries involved. The UFC organized its first event in Denver, Colorado after which the criticism became fierce. The event showcased many fighters from different disciplines such as judo, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, karate, Muay Thai, wrestling and boxing. After the initial political and governmental wrath the UFC got a new face with stricter rules and regulations, better safety norms and getting the state sanctions for the sport.

The Ultimate Fighting Championship gained popularity because of its amazing media coverage apart from its own uniqueness. The cable television deal to broadcast the fights across Canada, Europe, and Australia, the middle-east and Asia increased the popularity and awareness about the sport and the demand for it has increased by multifold. The UFC is broadcasted in 30 different countries and in 20 different languages.

The rules for the UFC are same as that laid down by the unified Mixed Martial Arts. The fights are carried out in eight sided or octagonal shaped ring. Each round lasts for around 5 minutes and there are three such rounds with a gap of one minute between each round for rest. There are seven classes of weights in which the fighters are divided and the fights take place. This is done to ensure that same weight fighters’ fight together and weight doesn’t act as an advantage during takedowns.

Victory is declared when a fighter taps out due to a deadlock or medical injury. A fighter can also win the fight if the judges decide so on account of running out of stipulated 5 minutes. If a referee has to intervene in between a hideous fight then the decision of winner lies in the hands of the referee.

Icon MMA Norwich Philosophy

When I started training BJJ/MMA back in 1999.  Things were very different.  Visiting a Gym meant, turn up, pay the fee, learn a couple of moves, then FIGHT!!!!

This quickly flushed out those who were not 100% committed  to the BJJ lifestyle.  You’d take your beating like a man.  If you didn’t like the idea of the high grades pasting you from one side of the mat to the other, the it was simple….  DON’T COME BACK!!!

Many gyms still run this version of training or close to it.

Back in 2005, I started to develope a beginner system for MMA Norwich/ BJJ, containing the foundation of each system.  And over the next 10 years, developed it through trial and error.  TODAY!!  I feel our beginner system is second to none and really helps those who are not already the fine tuned athlete.


It’s for those who are not in shape, who’s testosterone levels have dropped and don’t feel like killers everyday.  For those who want to take time learning the foundation of MMA Norwich/ BJJ before having to jump in a cage.  It’s for those who are getting a bit older and have a family and don’t want to come home with black eyes and bruises.

If this, or even a tiny bit sounds like you, then you need to come by and check out our UNIQUE beginner programme.
