  • What’s That Move Called? A Glossary Of MMA Terms

    It is for these new enthusiasts that we offer the following glossary of MMA terms frequently mentioned during color commentary. One caveat: Some of these descriptions may make MMA sound unduly violent. Yes, MMA is about inflicting physical superiority over another person. But to quote Sam Sheridan again, “When you think about it, fighting in a ring is incredibly civilized. We’ll try to kill each other, but we agree to stop the instant the other wants to or is hurt, we’ll shut down all the killer instincts inside us the moment we feel a tap on the leg”. Arm Bar: A finishing hold where a competitor puts pressure on his/her ....

  • Kickboxing can improve your power AND agility!

    Kickboxing can improve your power AND agility!

    To get better balance, power and agility, kickboxing is king among workouts. Experts who have studied the sport say nearly everyone—even older people who might shy away from such things—can benefit from throwing a punch. Unlike most other types of exercise, kickboxing emphasizes powerful movements. Power is different from strength, and for older adults, it’s an even better predictor of mobility and their risk for falls, says Kurt Jackson, an associate professor of neurology and rehab science at the University of Dayton in Ohio. “Pure strength is what a weightlifter uses, but producing power is about both force and speed,” he says. Kickboxing training tends ....

  • About Being One of the Biggest and One of the Greatest!

    About Being One of the Biggest and One of the Greatest!

    Yes, Warrior Martial Arts Academy has one of the biggest Competition Teams in the DFW area. And yes, we win lots of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments. But friends, remember that we started small. Warrior Martial Arts Academies launched in 2013 and we grew our Competition Team to the scale it is today. Just a bit of history: our team started about as small as you can get. Our first Competition Team had two kids that we took to Oklahoma for our first tournament (see photo of Julian and Karson). We just went to fight. No team rash guards. No patches. Just these kids with heart and drive and fearless determination. On that day, EVERY team was bigger than ours, but it didn’t stop us. We ....

  • Great Turnout for Warrior In-House Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament!!

    Great Turnout for Warrior In-House Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Tournament!!

    We recently had our in-house Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournament at our Warrior Martial Arts Academy West Frisco location. We hold this event for all of our Academies across the Dallas / Fort Worth metroplex each year. The goal is to give some students that are not “formally” on our Competition Team a chance to test their BJJ skills against students from other locations. We run the event for ages 3 – 14. We organize the event by weight, age, size and ability. It is a submission-only event, with double elimination. A big “thank you” to all the instructors and parents that helped out and made this event successful! It was a great turnout this spring, and we look ....
