In this day and age, Mixed Martial Arts in Mansfield as a sport has become more and more popular in this area. With the rising popularity of MMA, the demand for Brazilian jiu-jitsu schools has risen tremendously.

How does Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) affect the growth of Brazilian jiu-jitsu?

  • MMA fighters must learn Brazilian jiu-jitsu in order to develop the skills necessary to effectively address the inevitable clinch and/or take down.
  • When you see a fighter assume the mount position, guard, or use a submission, then you know they have some form of jiu-jitsu training!
