Warfighter's MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)
The founder of Warfighters R&R has been passionate about Brazilian Jiu Jistu (BJJ) from the time it was introduced to the Rangers in 1995. MMA has a very similarity to the US Army Combatives program. The Army has the World Class Program which supports many disciplines of MMA like boxing and wrestling, but there is no outlet for our Warfighters to particpate in competiton allowing them to test thier talent and skills. We will support our Warfighters to compete within their units. We will communicate with Division Command Teams and higher to provide support with proper sanctions, equipment, and recognition programs. Our ultimate goal is to select the best MMA Warfighter in every weight class to have the opportunity to represent their Armed Forces Branch and unit to compete during International Fight week in Las Vegas every summer year. The International Mix Martial Arts Foundation IMMAF is leading this cause!
Mixed martial arts (MMA) is often referred to as the world’s fastest growing sport. Its popularity with athletes and followers alike is constantly increasing and there are organizations, clubs and professional companies started all around the globe. The possibilities for development of MMA are great, but as for any sport there are also challenges. In order to harness all this potential there is a need for a common point of reference, a democratic body to organize and drive the development of the sport on a worldwide basis.

It's best said by Former Bantamwieght UFC Champion, “Mix Martial Arts really is the most responsible outlet for (aggression),” said by Ronda Rousey. If any of those people that had all of that aggression built up in them had some sort of outlet, I think that we’d have a lot more societal health because of it.”
