Disciplines – MMA Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in its modern form was born in the mid-’90s through a series of combat competitions. During these events, athletes and combatants from multiple disciplines such as BJJ, Boxing, and Wrestling put their art to the ultimate test to establish which Martial Art was the most effective.

Twenty-five years from its inception, MMA has evolved from a sport made up of disciplines, to become its own Martial Art. In a short space of time, MMA has gone from being relatively unknown to become one of the world’s fastest-growing sports, with millions of men and women around the world practising the sport on a weekly basis.


mixed martial arts DISCIPLINES 01.
Disciplines – The art of striking The main striking influences in modern MMA come from Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai. This is because these particular combat arts utilise a more fluid system of striking which enables a better delivery of power and the ability to merge other modern arts within them.


The Art of Striking DISCIPLINES 02.
Disciplines – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Is a submission and grappling based combat sport that was created by the world-famous Gracie family in the 1920s. The aim of BJJ is to take down your opponent, gain a dominant position, and submit them by applying one of many choke hold/ joint lock techniques. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an essential ingredient to success for MMA fighters, regardless of their fighting style!


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu DISCIPLINES 03.
Disciplines – Wrestling Is a grappling-based combat sport. In wrestling competitions, competitors aim to take down their opponent, obtain a dominant position and pin them. Although being one of the world’s oldest Martial Arts disciplines (over 15,000 years old!), wrestling is still highly effective today, particularly when high level wrestler’s make the switch to Mixed Martial Arts.

In case you missed anything

01

What happens if the schedule is interrupted due to COVID restrictions?

Arrow

If a gym must temporarily close due to government restrictions, the schedule will pause until restrictions allow training to resume.

All countries and states are dealing with their own unique challenges and strategies to help overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. W2W are working on a customised solution with each gym and local government authorities to determine the safest and most timely approach for individual W2W Series to recommence. Head over to Instagram to see updates from the series that have been able to return to the mats.

If you are a current competitor, please keep an eye on your inbox and series Facebook group for updates from your coach and W2W. If you have any further questions, please contact us for an update.

02

What if I can’t make some training sessions?

Arrow

From time to time during the course of a 20- week W2W training program it is inevitable that life demands will mean that some sessions will be missed. The most important thing to ensure during these occasions is that you communicate openly and transparently with your coaches so that they may set you some “ homework” in terms of making up for the odd session that you may miss.

03

How long are my training sessions?

Arrow

The training program runs for 20 consecutive weeks of early morning training sessions of between 60-90 minutes Monday through to Friday.

04

do i have time for this?

Arrow

There are 84,600 seconds in a day, it’s what you do with them that counts. People often think they don’t have time or are put off by the early starts. We’ve seen time and again in our testimonials that one of the biggest benefits is transforming to become a “morning person”. Also remember, this is an investment in YOU and what you walk away with after this amazing 20-week journey will empower the new and improved you and it will change the way you live your life for years to come. Do you have time for that?
