Are you one of those people who feel that simply running on the treadmill and lifting weights becomes monotonous for a while? Do you want to explore more adventurous ways of keeping yourself fighting fit while also building your self-confidence and inculcating a sense of discipline within yourself? Then MMA or Mixed Martial Arts is perfect for you!

What Is Mixed Martial Arts All About?

Mixed Martial Arts or MMA is a full contact combat sport that incorporates techniques from various martial arts like Judo, Jujitsu, Karate, Muay Thai (Thai kick-boxing), boxing and wrestling. One hour of MMA can burn up to 500-600 calories or even more and the best part is you will never be bored! But the benefits of MMA aren’t just restricted to burning calories alone.

Here are a few more benefits associated with MMA:

  1. Improves your strength and conditioning.
  2. Strengthens your heart.
  3. Boosts your confidence levels.
  4. Makes you mentally tough.
  5. Relieves stress and anxiety.
  6. Improves overall balance and coordination.
