Mixed Martial Arts Industry Takes Another Leap Forward: The MMA Conditioning Association Intends on Further Legitimizing the Sport and Making Super-human Fighters

The fastest growing sport in the world just got a boost with the creation of the Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Association.

Mixed Martial Arts (known to its loyalist as MMA) is the fastest growing sport in the world. However, until now, it has lacked the unified structure for its training and conditioning. By definition, MMA is a blend of other martial arts such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai kickboxing, wrestling and boxing. Since the sport emerged in the early 1990s, high level strength and conditioning has been added as part of the training curriculum for an MMA fighter. The MMA Conditioning Association (MMACA) has been formed to further unify the training protocol for all levels of MMA athletes. The MMACA is a division of the National Exercise & Sports Trainers Association, established in 1992 and boasting 45,000 members around the world.

"We do not teach specific fight tactics. We educate coaches, fighters, and trainers on the science and application of conditioning for MMA," says Dr. John Spencer Ellis, CEO of the MMACA. "Graduates of the MMA Conditioning Coach program will also learn advanced business and marketing strategies specific to the MMA industry. We want our members to be financially successful, not just great coaches," adds Ellis.

The MMA Conditioning coach program is delivered in a high-tech, comprehensive online format using video, audios, Powerpoints, PDFs, discussion groups and continuing education. The course takes over 60 hours of study to complete. If you are interested in enrolling in this course, visit the official site http://www.mixedmartialartsconditioningassociation.com
