Ever since Royce Gracie amazed the world by winning the first ever Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) tournament in the United States in 1993, practitioners of all styles of combat sports have been developing, what they believe to be, the most effective techniques in competition based fighting. At the time, Royce opened the eyes of the world to the effectiveness of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. But now in 2013, you see techniques from many martial arts disciplines being effectively used in MMA competition. This is why the North East Combat Sports Expo was created.
The North East Combat Sports Expo is a celebration of ALL combat sports, and a weekend where competitors, fans, celebrities and businesses can meet under one roof to enjoy many different styles of combat competition. Whether it’s the submissions of BJJ, the throws of Judo or the knees of Muay Thai, you will see it all here during the North East Combat Sports Expo.
This truly will be a unique and first of its kind weekend for competitors and fight fans in this area. Besides competing in or watching the various styles of competition, you will have the opportunity to browse many businesses who are industry leaders with their products. Also, fight fans will have the opportunity to take seminars and train with some of the best coaches and fighters in many different styles of combat. If you need help with your takedowns, submissions, kicks, punches or defense, there will be a seminar for you. Lastly, if you’re a fight fan, you’ll love that there will be picture taking and autograph signings with popular pro fighters.
