Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts

Modern MMA

Mixed Martial Arts was originally based around the concept of pitting different martial arts and fighting styles against each other in competition with minimal rules, in an attempt to determine which style would be more effective in a real combat situation.

Modern MMA Martial Arts competition is an evolution of such events, and rules have been implemented to promote acceptance of the sport, while at the same time maintaining as much of the original no-holds-barred concept as possible. There is however no general sanctioning body for the sport, and the sets of rules vary according to the laws of individual organizations and localities.

The techniques utilized in MMA Martial Arts competition generally fall into two categories: striking techniques (such as kicks, knees and punches) and grappling techniques (such as clinch holds, pinning holds, submission holds, sweeps, takedowns and throws).

Some unarmed hand to hand combat techniques are considered illegal in arguably all modern MMA Martial Arts competition, such as biting, eye-gouging, fish-hooking and small joint manipulation.

Over the last ten years strikes to the groin have become illegal in all legally sanctioned MMA Martial Arts organizations. The legality of other techniques such as elbows, headbutts and spinal locks vary according to competition or organization.

Victory is either gained by the judges decision after completing all rounds, a stoppage by the referee or the fight doctor (in the event that the competitor is injured or can no longer defend himself intelligently), a submission, by a competitors corner man (throwing in the towel), or knockout.

MMA modern training

Today, Mixed Martial Artists train in a variety of styles that have been proven effective in the ring, so that they can be effective in all the phases of combat. Although MMA fighters will try to play to their particular specialties, they will inevitably encounter all kinds of situations; a stand-up fighting specialist will probably get taken down at some point and a submission artist might need to fight standing-up for a while before he can complete a takedown.

A Mixed Martial Artist might train in a particular style to enhance his or her skills in the phase of combat that the style encompasses. Typical styles, known for their effectiveness, that have been trained prior to the MMA career, and that are trained individually to enhance a particular phase of combat, are: Competition requires training in striking, wrestling, and submission fighting.

MMA Styles

Stand-up: Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and sometimes Karate and Taekwondo are trained to improve footwork, elbowing, kicking, kneeing and punching.

Clinch: Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Sambo, and Judo are trained to improve clinching, take downs and throws, while Muay Thai is trained to improve the striking aspect of the clinch.

Ground: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Shoot Wrestling, Catch Wrestling, Judo, and Sambo are trained to improve submission holds, and defense against them. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and styles of amateur wrestling are trained to improve positioning.

MMA sport and competition

Many styles have to be adapted slightly for use in the sport. For example, several boxing stances are ineffective because they leave fighters vulnerable to leg kicks or takedowns. Similarly, Judo techniques have to be adapted to an opponent not wearing a Judo-Gi.

Commonly, modern day MMA fighters do not train in any particular style, but either train in multiple styles with multiple coaches, or train in teams with other MMA athletes focusing specifically on MMA fighting.

Conditioning, calisthenics and strength training are also important aspects of an MMA fighters training. Mixed Martial Arts competition is very demanding physically, and the athletes need to be in top shape to be successful.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai is the Thai name for a form of martial art practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Cambodia (where it is Pradal Serey), Myanmar, Vietnam (where it is known as Vo Tu Do), and Malaysia (where it is known as Tomoi). The different types of fighting in mainland South East Asia is analogous to the different types of Kung Fu in China and Silat in the South East Asian islands or Malay world.

Traditional Muay Thai Martial Arts has a long history in Thailand as a fighting style used by the military. The military style of Muay Thai is called Lerdrit, while todays Sport Muay Thai slightly varies from the original art and uses kicks and punches in a ring and with gloves similar to those used in western boxing. Muay Thai Martial Arts is referred to as The Science of Eight Limbs, as the hands, elbows, knees and shins are all used extensively in this art.

A master practitioner of Muay Thai Martial Arts thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact, as opposed to two points (fists) in boxing and four points (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts. Muay Thai Martial Arts is an especially versatile, brutal and straightforward fighting style.

Techniques

The basic offensive techniques in Muay Thai Martial Arts use fists, elbows, shins, feet, and knees to strike the opponent. To bind the opponent for both offensive and defensive purposes, small amounts of stand-up grappling are used: the clinch.

Muay Thai Martial Arts is often a fighting art of attrition, where opponents exchange blows with one another. This is certainly the case with traditional stylists in Thailand, but is a less popular form of fighting in the contemporary world fighting circuit.

With the success of Muay Thai in Mixed Martial Arts MMA fighting, it has become the de facto martial art of choice for competitive stand-up fighters. As a result, it has evolved in order and incorporated much more powerful hand striking techniques used in western style boxing, and the Thai style of exchanging blow for blow is no longer favorable.

When Muay Thai fighters compete against fighters of other styles (and if the rules permit it), they almost invariably emphasize elbow (sok) and knee (kao) techniques to gain a distinct advantage in fighting.

Almost all techniques in Muay Thai Martial Arts use the entire body movement, rotating the hip with each kick, punch and block. The rotation of the hips in Muay Thai techniques and intensive focus on core muscles (abdominal and surrounding muscles) is very distinctive and is what sets Muay Thai Martial Arts apart from other styles of martial arts.

Muay Thai classes for all levels

Muay Thai is getting more and more popular every day. Not only for people who want to be a fighters, but more people start to see the benefits of Muay Thai as the perfect work out. With Muay Thai, every muscle in your body is used and it is the perfect way to get fit, lose weight, learn how to defend yourself, build up confidence, and many more.

    "Possibly the best holiday I have had. I stayed at this camp for four weeks, and managed to train almost twice a day everyday apart from weekends. Room I stayed was air conditioned. Had no problems at all, and if I needed anything, the Robbie (the manager) and the lovely ladies in the office were always there to help. There is a cook on site, by the name of 'mama'. So whenever hungry, she is the go to lady! The training was twice a day, and the trainers were great, learnt a lot off these guys. I really enjoyed my time here. Planning on making another trip soon! Thank you guys!"

    "I had never done any martial arts before and so I was a complete beginner - but it didn't matter. The Muay Thai classes are attended by people of all ages and all levels and everything could be adapted to suit. I stayed at Superpro for a month but would have happily stayed longer. The staff and trainers were generally very friendly and nice people. I would definitely recommend for anyone who is interested in Muay Thai to try this place."

    "My daughter decided to continue her Muay Thai training during our stay at Samui. We were referred to Superpro an this was really great. Very good facilities and a large staff of very qualified trainers. She decided for an one hour private training in the morning and 2 hours in the late afternoon. It is hard training but highly recommended if you want to progress is a relatively short time."

    "To be honest this is my first Muay Thai gym in Thailand but I've trained in numerous MMA gyms in the States. Of course the facilities and attitude are different but I really liked training here. The coaches are cool if a bit carefree and the facilities are decent. Got a good workout especially hitting pads in the ring and I learned a thing or two. Would return!"

    "Trained here for Muay Thai for 8 days, had a great experience and learned so much. Took part in the Yoga too, where I had a similar experience. I would say that fitness plays a big part in this, it really does help your progression with technique if you're already fit."

    "I had a great time. The trainings were fantastic and very well structured, and the trainers made sure to improve any mistakes you made while doing the exercises. Everybody was friendly, helpful, and approachable, including the staff.The only reason I did not stay longer was because the comfortable rooms for 1 person alone were a bit expensive and because the rain and damp weather everyday were driving me crazy! Will be back though."

  • Review by Jeffrey Harding

    "I arrived at Superpro Samui at around 10:30, shortly after their morning training session. People were really friendly when checking in. I had booked a room with A/C and it was very spacious with a balcony. A/C worked well and the room was clean.I turned out for the afternoon training session not quite knowing what expect having never done Muay Thai before. The first 20 minutes was an option of skipping or running. I had flip flops on so skipping it was. The rest of the training session was a mixture of practicing on the bags and one on one with an instructor on the pads.Over my time there I found most of the instructors were good and I learned a lot in four days. The rest of the people staying in the hotel were also really friendly and there was a good atmosphere about the place.The restaurant was pretty reasonable with a good choice of healthy food. All you can eat breakfast for 180 THB although could probably do with being open half hour early so you can get something before the 08:00 training session.Overall this is a good place to train with a good gym and also possibility of doing MMA. You can just walk in any time and stay for as long as you want with one on one training sessions available but relatively expensive. I had a good time."

  • Review by Lars Schneider from Colorado, USA

    "My cousin and I have recently stayed at Superpro Samui for a length of 30 days. It was the training experience I was hoping for in its entirety. The trainers were excellent and very experienced in teaching us. I have had quite a bit of MMA experience, however my cousin hasn't ever been in a fight.Despite our difference in levels they accommodated both of our skill levels perfectly. Accommodations were humble yet comfortable.I was 187 pounds when I started and I lost 12 pounds during that month. My cousin was 315 pounds and lost about 25 pounds.Amazing results for that short period of time and amazing training to go along with it. I highly recommend anyone who wants to get fit or train there. Heads up- If you can get your cardio has high as you can before you go. The more you can run the better off you will be."

  • Review by a traveler from Victoria, Australia

    "Wow! Two chicks completely inexperienced in Muay Thai decided to give it a go. Two hours later, dripping with sweat and smiling with endorphins, we determined that if we were going to spend two hours killing calories why not with some serious (or more experienced than beginner) Muay Thai fighters.We loved the atmosphere, the rings and the helpful Thai instructors. Never felt intimidated or inept and as such we have it our best and came home feeling accomplished!Need a unique and healthy experience for 400bht, you can't go wrong. 350 baht from anantara lawana on chaweng beach is pretty fair and the driver (Mr Joy) kindly picked us back up after 2hrs. I took home SuperPro singlet top, worn muscles and a few self-inflicted bruises. Plus a memorable experience!"

  • Review by Marvin from Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    "I can't think of a better place to be right now. We arrived very late in the evening and there was still a receptionist waiting. Little that we knew, she was the one personal helping us fully during our stay! From day trips, scooters, foo, just all advice needed to make the stay comfortable.Since it was our first time, this help was perfect; all within a really decent price. Now the workouts! The camp is amazing. I wish I could stay for a view months. The trainers do fool around a lot in the beginning. Leg sweeps is what they seem to love. But when they see you really want to learn, they are very professional.I took a moment with a personal trainer and that changed my techniques on different levels. I can advise you to talk to trainer Noi. Hes the Thai with long hair. Looks like a Indian ;) Rooms are clean! Sport facilities are above normal Thai level. There are 3 big rings, huge mat and a lot of punching bags. Oh and pool, it is very nice because its freaking hot. My conclusion: The best mix of Thai Culture and Western Structure! Enjoy."

  • Review by a traveler from Maastricht, The Netherlands

    "I stayed at Superpro for 11 days. I trained there as well. The rooms are really nice and it's very clean. The Muay Thai gym looks really good and I think it's one of the best places to train for a short or long period. It doesn't matter how long you're planning to stay there and what you're goal is, they want to train you as good as possible. There is also a place to fitness and a swimming pool. They give good service, you can plan some trips or rent a motorbike. You can also eat there some good food. So, actually they have everything and it's really worth the money!"
