In 1993 the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) were the first to match black belts from different disciplines against each other in a "no-holds-barred" battle to determine which martial art was most effective. As the UFC progressed, it became apparent that fighters needed to be proficient in all areas of martial arts. Thus Mixed Martial Arts was born, and now almost 25 years later the sport has taken the world by storm. MMA has proven to be the most effective means of self-defense in real world situations, training students to be effective in all areas of MMA. Cies MMA will be the first high level mixed martial arts academy in Colorado Springs, offering a variety of martial arts classes for every member of your family.
