Eddie Bravo: ‘Break Dancing Is A Good Base For Jiu-Jitsu’

According to Eddie Bravo in a recent JRE Fight Companion, the best way to get started as an MMA fighter depends on different individuals and their specific goals. Other factors include age, weight class, and how much time a person has to devote to training on a weekly or even a daily basis. For younger aspiring fighters, one of the best first steps is to learn break-dancing because it helps with coordination and timing.

Another recommendation is to get into wrestling in order to get familiar with competing. Then the beginner can add in Jiu-Jitsu training once a week for a while, before stepping up the Jiu-Jitsu lessons to twice and then three times per week. Most of the focus should remain on the wrestling and on the breaking dancing because both of these translate the best into learning this particular martial art.
