Martial Arts & Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

The term Martial Art is used as a very broad classification of combat methods predominantly focused on self defence and personal development. However, nowadays, the term is used often simply to denote ‘Martial Sport’ – combat methods diluted to where two individuals can compete and the risk of serious injury is reduced – like MMA, a combination of many martial sports.

When searching for a martial arts facility to train it is important to consider injuries can and do occur in combat sport gyms where improper and sometimes inappropriate training methods are too readily utilised and students compete in challenging and dangerous events way before they are ready. This type of premature competition does not happen at Perth Martial Arts Academy as your safety is paramount to us and no student is allowed to progress without appropriate and adequate training and experience. The safety and well-being of you, your training partners, and the instructors is always foremost in our minds.

Those wishing to participate in MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) training and MMA competition, if so inclined, will need to cross-train in various programs offered at our school before they can participate in such events. It is important to note full-contact sparring and Competition is NOT compulsory at Perth Martial Arts to grade in our martial arts systems or to learn self defence. Such is the quality of our instruction, students can readily progress and develop by focusing on perfecting principles alone. There are many pathways to personal improvement and we can show you how to bring out your best no matter which path you choose. Chat to our instructors and we’ll advise you how.
