Here's What One of Our Members Had to Say...
“Rumble Martial Arts has taught me to have the confidence that I need to not get into fights but rather how to avoid conflicts and be focused and disciplined on my martial arts. It had given me a fun way to exercise without dragging myself to a gym for a boring workout. I work with a great team that has become more like a family then anything. The coaching is great, it’s easy to follow for all levels of experience from beginner to advanced. I really enjoy watching there children and teen classes to see how well they can encourage and instill confidence in the younger generation. I do plan on signing my own kids up once they reach the appropriate age and maturity level. All in all I would recommend Rumble Martial Arts to all people looking to challenge themselves, set and achieve goals, or just want to find a fun way to stay in shape.”
“Rumble Martial Arts is a great club for all ages and skills. I learn lots and continue to do so every class. It is a great exercise to keep in shape and have fun at the same time. I highly recommend anyone interested in learning martial to check out Rumble Martial Arts”
“I’m not exactly the biggest guy at the gym, so starting out was a bit intimidating for me. I had nothing to worry about. The coaches and everyone at the gym really all work together to help you improve. For how hard we are pushed, I never thought I’d look forward to getting my ass kicked every class.”
If You Can't Fight on the Ground then You Can't Fight
"170lbs Man Defeats All Larger Opponents in First Caged No Rules Fights With Ease"
Before the first UFC every Martial Art was separate and a question would always be asked, "who would win in a real fight between (Name a style or Popular Fighter of the time) against (another style or popular fighter)". Every style had its own Rules (ie. Boxers couldn't go to the ground, Karate and Tae Kwon Do (TKD) is stand-up only point based fighting and has no punches to the face, Wrestlers don't throw strikes, etc. etc.).
This first event back in 1993 had Champion Boxers, Karate Practitioners, Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Kickboxing and More all in the same “ring” but all of the limitations of each disciplines rules were taken away. There were also no weight classes, no rounds, no time limits and the only rules were no eye-gouging and no biting.
Compared to all Combat Sports and their respective rules this new event was the ONLY thing that really represented a real-life situation and real-life self-defense.
At the first UFC in 1993 Royce Gracie proved to the World in the first Ultimate Fighting Championships that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is the Best Martial Art hands down. He was the smallest participant in the Tournament (weighing in at about 170lbs and some competitors weighed up to as much as 415lbs) and he won all of his fights easily. He went on to win Multiple UFC tournaments and anyone interested in winning a real fight was like, “I have to learn this!”.
The Gracie Family (from Brazil) had been doing this for many years with their, now famous, Gracie Challenge matches which eventually lead to the birth of the UFC. - A great documentary to watch is "Ultimate Royce Gracie" which is the History of the Royce but with him being the first Champion and his style changing the World it documents the history of very well.
The difference between styles was incredible. Everyone at the time was training particular Martial Arts with set Rules but the purposes was the same - "Self-Defense". MMA back then was the closest thing to REAL fighting that could happen and it exposed many flaws in other (now known as Traditional Martial Arts) that no one knew before. The education of Self-defense has grown over the years but there are still many that aren’t educated to this Giant change in Combat Sports which is why the Royce Gracie documentary is such a great movie to pick up or download.
Many fights included Stomps to the face of a downed opponent, Pulling hair, Groin strikes, etc. With Champions of all Martial Arts lined up against each other and thrown into a cage with no rules, no time limits, no rounds, no gloves, in a tournament style event where competitors had to fight 4 times in 1 night - Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (AKA, Gracie Jiu Jitsu) beat them all. Anyone interested in competing in MMA (then known as Cage Fighting or No Holds Barred) was FORCED to learn BJJ or be destroyed.
