Did you know that you can burn anywhere from 600- 1000 calories in a 1 hour session of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?! It’s true, and not only that, it is also a great workout for strength and conditioning, since you are using your entire body in the workout.
Learning skills in mixed martial arts is great to know because not only is it one of the best workouts out there, it is great for women to learn how to defend themselves if their life is in danger. We here at MMA FIGHT personally believe that it is better to know the skills and to hopefully never use them, then to be stuck in a situation where you need to defend yourself and to be vulnerable to the attacker.
