Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Classes in Athens

MMA is focused heavily on skill and technique. Within our MMA classes at X3 Sports, you learn basic fundamentals such as striking and clinch, grappling and submissions, takedowns and wrestling defense; blended techniques, including striking into takedowns, takedowns into submissions, ground and pound, working off the cage and ropes, and work simulated sparring - all performed in a safe environment in class without full sparing or striking; however, live takedowns and grappling may occur. While learning these disciplines, there are many opportunities to advance to the next level in competition.

The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses—behind the lines, in the gym and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.
