To better grasp what you’ll get from this remote-learning MMA course, it helps to look at the man behind it. “For me, martial arts is a personal journey for self-improvement, self-defense, a better understanding of the world and an understanding of how to handle myself in any situation,” says Greg Jackson, Black Belt's 2015 Instructor of the Year. “Mixed martial arts is the sporting aspect of what I do, but I’m first and foremost a martial artist.”

Translation: While the techniques and tactics that compose his Mixed Martial Arts Core Curriculum will work in the cage, most of them also will work on the street. Rest assured that every one will further your own journey of personal development through martial arts.

Jackson’s unique curriculum revolves around his experience in mixed martial arts, a fight sport that he acknowledges can seem intimidating on television. But those fears are unfounded if you approach MMA training the right way, he says.

To assist you, he created the Greg Jackson Mixed Martial Arts Core Curriculum. His goal was to produce a program that would lay a foundation of basic exercises, drills and techniques designed to develop a functional skill set.

Jackson doesn’t take the easy way out and demo just his favorite finishing techniques. Any MMA fighter can do that. Instead, he draws from his experience as a coach — Holly Holm, Jon Jones, Georges St-Pierre, Rashad Evans and Shane Carwin are among those who’ve availed themselves of his services — and covers the all-important setups for the techniques, as well as the body positioning and footwork.

Jackson’s teaching method has been refined over two decades. Right after high school, he began showing select moves to his friends. As soon as the demand was there, he opened his own martial arts school in New Mexico. “That started my mixed martial arts coaching journey,” he says. “We kept on winning, and more people started coming.”

Perhaps the best thing about Jackson's streaming-video course is that it’s not for competition only. Because his main interest is self-defense, he makes sure every move also has value in a real fight. The program works so well that law-enforcement officers and members of the U.S. military are adopting it.

“We’ve found that if you use the sporting aspect of mixed martial arts as a base, you can add things to it for very effective self-defense,” Jackson says.
