MODERN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Although no rules fighting can be traced back at least to the Pankration of ancient Greece, modern mixed martial arts (MMA) found its origin when the Gracie family arrived in the USA. In order to demonstrate the effectiveness of their family's style and fighting strategies they set about organising a Vale Tudo contest they would call The Ultimate Fighting Champonship (UFC).

Since those early days of style on style matches MMA has developed and evolved into an exciting and dynamic sport in its own right where athletes require knowledge of every aspect of fighting in order to succeed.

Roots MMA is the mixed martial arts program of BJJ Leiden. Lessons are focused upon developing a well rounded skill set, covering striking, wrestling and ground fighting and most importantly, the ability to combine these aspects smoothly and competently under the guidance of Jay Clayson.
