Mittmaster MMA Syllabus
Teach progressive & engaging MMA classes and grade your students using this structured grading syllabus
The Mittmaster MMA syllabus is structured around the three levels of MMA competition.
Each level has three grades.
-Amateur (Level 1)
-Semi-professional (Level 2)
-Professional (Level 3)
The first three levels are amateur levels and focused on MMA fundamentals
The second three levels are semi-professional focus on MMA transitions between striking, takedowns & grappling
The final three levels are focused on professional level skills including cage control, fight strategy and advanced combinations.
The Mittmaster MMA syllabus contains:
I watched the first UFC and immediately fell in love with Mixed Martial Arts. Like a lot of people, I was blown away by what Royce Gracie could do against bigger, stronger and more athletic opponents. Since then I've been training MMA every week for 18 years.
I was lucky to be able to attend the first real MMA seminar in the UK with Sensei Erik Paulson, Erik was the first person I met who could strike and grapple with equal skill. His seminar blew my mind and I traveled to LA to train with him several times.
After training for 8 years with Erik and a few UK BJJ coaches I had my first pro MMA fight. I won that fight and all my other fights before I retired due to injury. My last fight was for the UCMMA British Welterweight Title (check out the young pic of me below)
After I retired from competition, I focused on teaching my MMA students and immediately ran into a major problem.
90% of my MMA students didn't want to get into the cage and compete, they just wanted to learn MMA and get fit.
In order to meet their needs, I started to create an MMA syllabus and hold MMA gradings. I did this to give my students short-term goals and reward them for achieving key milestones.
This massively improved the retention of my MMA students. They now had structure, goals, and rewards for continuing to train. After adding the MMA syllabus to my school the retention in my MMA classes tripled.
FREE BONUS 1: THE SIMPLE SUBMISSION SYSTEM (90 MINUTE VIDEO)
This grappling programme developed by my friend, (and three-time world BJJ champion) Tom Barlow is perfect for MMA schools. His system will drastically decrease learning time and helps your students to get more submissions in class and competitions.
It's a fantastic system because you don’t have to think about what’s going to happen next, you know your partner's likely reactions and have the counters ready.
It’s also a system that helped him to win the Masters No Gi World Championships as a Black Belt THREE years in a row.
FREE BONUS 2: SIMPLE SUBMISSION SYSTEM MAP
Tom has also kindly donated a detailed map that helps you understand his Simple Submission System. It shows you the precise structure and sequence of each submission and how everything links together.
This MindMap really helped me understand how his submission system works.
FREE BONUS 3: 12 MMA LESSON PLANS
You will also get 12 MMA lesson plans based on the syllabus. Use these plans to teach the first couple of months classes using your new MMA syllabus
Each lesson plan is fully editable so you can change anything you like. They are designed to cover the first 30-60 days training, for a brand new student.
Each lesson plan builds on the last so by the end of two months the students should possess solid basic MMA skills.
