When it comes to Mixed Martial Arts in Ottawa, the clear choice is N1 Thai on Preston Street in Little Italy Ottawa. Although MMA has actually been evolving for hundreds of years and encompasses styles from Asia, South America, North America and Europe, the grandfather of MMA is a style known as Shooto, which was born in Japan in 1985. Shooto is known for producing the best LW Fighter on the planet.
As far as the best style of fighting is concerned, there is no single definitive variation that is better than any others. There are individuals that have demonstrated their dominance of the sport using one particular style, but if you look closely you will see that the style has chosen them. Many lean towards Brazilian Jiu Jitsu because of Royce Gracies dominance in UFC, but we have seen examples of almost every other fighting technique move a fighter to the top. The lesson is that it is not as much about the technique as it is about the fighter. The best course of action is to build a foundation in BJJ, Judo, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Karate, Boxing or Wrestling in an atmosphere that encourages linear development and lateral creativity.
There are two Rules to Mixed Martial Art fighting. The first Rule is “Know the Rules.” You might also know this as “Wax on, wax off.” If you understand the mechanics, the principles and the philosophy that go into the discipline that you are attempting to perfect, then your application of those techniques will be second nature. The second Rule is “Know that there aren’t any Rules.” Once you have trained effectively and the mechanics have become second nature, then your body knows the drill. And here is where many fighters falter, because the mind suddenly does not need to expend time and energy sending impulses to the muscles and waiting for a response. A block, a jab, the flash of a punch is over before it is begun and the brain feels Neo with his first encounter with an Agent-lightly scrambled and slightly confused.
Learning to let the mind go free is the special ingredient that separates the good from the exceptional, the average from the superb, confidence from bravado, the linear from the lateral or the technical from the creative. Just like Obi Wan said when responding to Luke regarding the power of the force: “It controls your actions but it also obeys your commands.” And that is something that you find in very few places. Ask around the world, if you are in search of the linear or the lateral, N1 Thai in Little Italy Ottawa is where you will find it.
