Is Mixed Martial Arts for everyone?
NO!!! Absolutely not! There are people who swear by it and will tell you that anyone can do it. I agree, anyone can but not everyone should. I am sure that a lot of people have seen the movie Never Back Down, and there may be be a lot of people that stood and cheered at the final fight. Okay, maybe that was only me.
But if you have never seen the practice, or watched a fighter prepare for a fight by doing 5 rounds of "Round Robin", you will be sorely disappointed. (I am not using "sore" as a pun).
The training is rigorous and it pushes you to the maximum of your capability. If you are training for the work out, that's one thing. If you are training to fight that is something totally different. You can't just walk into the cage and expect if you have not put your body and mind through it. You have to learn to train your face/head to take punches. -Yes, the goal is to do the punching, in reality you may have to take a couple to get inside your opponent's reach. You have to train your body to get kicked. Again, it's nice to be the one kicking but in reality - you get it. You have to train your mind to give more than what you get, to not just react but to strategize for what's going on in the fight you're currently in.
