Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Sacan Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Traditional martial arts are often divided into strike based stand up fighting (e.g. karate, taekwondo, and boxing) and grappling – ground (jiu-jitsu, judo, and wrestling). This would leave fighters at a disadvantage because they were trained in either midrange or close range techniques. Mixed Martial Arts program (MMA) was created to merge these two fighting archetypes into a single art form.

Do people learn MMA just for fighting?

MMA is so well known because it has led many competitors to victory in the octagon; other forms of traditional martial arts do not often defeat competitors with an MMA background. But MMA is not meant only for competitors. If you are interested in learning a style of fighting and getting into shape then why not choose the most well rounded martial art?

Why not choose MMA?

People do learn MMA not just for fighting but for self-confidence, self-worth and self-discipline.

MMA gives you the knowledge to handle almost any situation. Boxing and kickboxing teach you how to strike, kick, block, dodge, and perform standing grapples. If you’re brought to the ground, then you can rely on jiu-jitsu and wrestling to help you out.MMA can be learned for self-defense purposes just as easily as it can be used for sparring. Many of our Sacan students of MMA never go into competitions; instead they use the training to enhance themselves and face their own fears to build their confidence.

Why learn MMA?

There are many reasons to train in MMA. Here are the ones that our Sacan students mention most frequently.

• Build confidence

• Learn and instill discipline

• Excellent physical and mental workout

• Stay cool under pressure – self-control

• Relieve stress.

. Competitive Spirit – Never give up mind set

Been training Muay Thai for 6 years in Malaysia, other parts of the States and even Thailand itself. And the only man who ever taught the way great evasive counter fighters such as Saenchai, Samart, Somrak and Lerdsila advocated is the one and only Neal Rowe. Even in Thailand itself, not all camps focus on speed and footwork, most hit pads and run all day long. Here at Sacan you’ll find less pad hitting, but more work on learning to move your feet and control the space. Sounds easy, but when you do get it down, even if you perform a technique decently with not a lot of “power”, you’d still fold someone in half. Neal teaches techniques and skills in such a way that you don’t have to rely so much on your athleticism to snap a person in half. His ability of adding different aspects of other striking martial arts to Muay Thai evolves it into a pure striking martial arts that you can adopt for any ruleset(kickboxing, boxing, karate or muay thai itself) according to the rules, you literally become water. The man is a pure genius and if fighting is science, he’s the one taking humanity to greater heights.

Great martial arts school, fantastic experience. For adults, by far the best stand up / kickboxing/ Muay Thai you can find in the Midwest region.

Great place with great people. Everyone treats each other with respect and all levels of experience are accepted. Head instructor, Neal Rowe, is very knowledgeable in several different arts. The gym is affordable compared compared to most gyms in the region. This is the place for you to train Muay Thai or your kids to train in Kenpo Karate, if you are living in the Midwest.

Sacan is the place to be for martial arts training in the west Chester/Cincinnati area. Neal, the head Thai coach, has years of experience. Not only was he a championship competitor himself, he’s also coached multiple champions including former ufc fighter and middle weight world champion Rich Franklin.Neal also offers private lessons in Kali (Filipino weapon fighting) which can be an interesting change of pace even if you’re just looking for mma-oriented training.All in all Sacan has the full package and is one of my favorite places to train.

Easily one of the best places to train in Muay Thai in the region. Lots of emphasis on technique – not a show up and beat up kind of place. If you stay long enough, you will see Kru will teach you the art of fighting, not just Thai boxing! plus you will find a diverse range of people training here – from fighters to serious hobbyists and all will help you up your game!
