What's the difference between MMA and all the other Martial Arts
MMA is a composite of all the various forms. It's generally assumed that to be a great MMA combatant, you must first be proficient in a striking style as well as proficient as a grappler. At Factum we believe a good base in boxing, kickboxing, jiu jitsu and folkstyle-wrestling are key to being ready for the cage.
Do you train Pro fighters? And do you train beginners?
We do both! If it's your first class, we aren't going to send you to the wolves. You'll get plenty of one-on-one time, and make sure you understand the terms "Squish the bug", "Roll with the punch", "Jab/Cross/Hook", "Duck", "Slip" and a multitude of other terms. At Factum MMA you will get as little or as much sparring (contact) as you would like.
Want to be a hero against a bag for your whole career? No problem, it's a great workout! But if you are looking for sparring partners, we have, in our gym anything from beginners to UFC combatants as sparring partners.
Do I really have to wrap my hands to try MMA?
Yes! Unless you're some kind of freak, you were born with 300 bones that magically turn into 206 bones by the time you became an adult. Over half of the bones in the human body are in your hands and feet. There are 27 individual bones in your hands and your hands aren't that big. That means those bones are quite small and fragile and should be looked after. We will teach you how best to properly wrap your hands.
