Mixed Martial Arts Program: We Don’t Tapout, We knockout®
This class is designed for the person who is fascinated with true Mixed Martial Arts. Master Mehrdad has been teaching Mixed Martial Arts utilizing Muay Thai techniques and incorporated Persian Wrestling techniques (from Iran) long before many people heard the term “Mixed Martial Arts.”
He began learning the art of wrestling and grappling at the age of five (1970) and learned this art from his teachers in the Far East. Master Mehrdad has trained his whole life and eventually learned the true concept of the art from many great Grandmasters around the world. Today’s definition of MMA is someone who learns some wrestling, some striking, then enters a cage fight that is more like street fighting or pro wrestling without proper skills and techniques.
What is Mixed Martial Arts?
The real definition of Mixed Martial Arts means “mastery of more than one discipline,” or placing two individuals of different systems such as Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon do, Jiu Jitsu, etc. to compete against each other in one arena. It also means a combination of different styles in the world of Martial Arts. It is not what is seen today in a cage and unfortunately diminishes the honor of the sport and the art. If you are looking to tap into an authentic Mixed Martial Arts program you must seek a teacher with decades of experience in multiple arts or the mastery of one art with a background in other systems.
