Jackson’s MMA has introduced a brand new belt system specifically geared to MMA training. Similar to specific martial arts the belt levels range from white belt to black belt, all under the instruction of head trainer Greg Jackson.
Jackson’s MMA gym manager Ricky Kottenstette spoke to MMA Weekly about the new system.
“It took us a long time to develop it. It basically takes everything from his books and in the gym into one system, and basically Greg wrote the new curriculum, so there’s actually a legitimate MMA belt system. We’re already testing on it at Jackson’s Martial Arts and Fitness Academy, and it’s working beautifully.
This is Greg Jackson’s belt. I mean his style has his own deal, he had his own name for it, but we just kind of switched it to Jackson’s MMA. This is a Jackson’s MMA belt. You have jiu-jitsu, judo, and all the other forms, but Greg’s system is very effective and this is just sort of the premier testing platform for a belt system, that has guidelines all the way to the top, all the way to black belts.
You don’t have to get into the UFC Octagon to prove it and be a contender like most of the other guys did growing up. This is our opportunity to help people learn all of Greg’s system and learn his techniques, and he does the actual belt testing. So when student’s test, they test with Greg Jackson; so he does all the belt graduations.”
