BlogKick: Why Team Jackson is the best team in MMAPosted on January 27, 2011, 12:46 PM by bluntsandbeers
With rapid evolution in the sport of mixed martial arts fighters have to search for every advantage that is available to them. Whether it be shedding those extra 15 pounds, changing their diets, or traveling to a new camp, fighters are willing to do just about anything to gain the competitive edge. But the most important thing in a fighters preparation is where he trains, And now a days there is no better place to train then Jackson’s Submission fighting.
It all started in 1992 when Greg Jackson developed his own style of fighting called “Gaidojutsu”. Gaidojutsu was originally a combination of high level wrestling and basic judo locks, but as he started to train more and more MMA fighters, his style adapted techniques from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and Kickboxing.
Aside from having a brilliant mind for strategy, Greg Jackson has a great understanding of MMA fighting styles. He has been studying Martial Arts for over two decades and he has the ability to prepare his fighters for anything. He claims that talent is not as hard to find as people think and it’s actually about mental attitude and strategy execution. That’s may be a unique way of thinking, but he certainly isn’t wrong. Sherdog.com reports that Team Jackson has an 81% win rate. That is unparalleled in the world of Mixed Martial Arts.
Last but not least Greg Jackson has the ability to evolve almost any fighter he gets his hands on. A more recent example is the way Melvin Guillard and Clay Guida have changed. Since moving to Team Jackson the change these fighters have undergone this past year is incredible. Both fighters went undefeated in 2010 and have strung together three straight victories.
