Are most americans afraid of doing Mixed Martial Arts? (MMA)

are they afriad of taking a hit? if so, why?

i went to Arizona for the summer, and searched an entire city to find a nice MMA gym. What i found was a bunch of nonsense. The place taught all of the martial arts used in MMA. but they taught them serperatly. and there was very little if ne sparring.

one sensei told me that people think MMA looks easy on TV, so they want to try it, but quit as soon as they get hit...HARD.

why is that? i personaly blame it on the American culture and the way it raises its children. So what r your thoughts? peace over war

Yep, and it will always be that way. The real fights or fighters with at least some ability/talent will get past that point. If you can take the abuse of getting hid hard, then you have a chance. 99% of the population is not like that. Especially getting hit by a punch that flies at you with so much aggression it drops you instantly.

Even when I first got hit by a serious punch from a guy working towards a career in MMA, It still caught me off guard despite having been in countless fights through my school life. Those guys aren't kiddies. Thankfully I am not in the large percentage of people who wuss out, I take and then I give. But i'm more into classical boxing than MMA. I don't enjoy getting my cock rubbed by another guy trying to slam me.

I'm afraid of doing any Martial Arts because I'm not graceful at all.
