What is MMA?

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) is a full-contact martial arts competition that uses various fighting styles from multiple martial arts and combat sports to form fights. As one of the fastest-growing sports globally, it has quickly become a spectator sport – millions tune in each month to watch some of the top MMA fighters compete against one another.

MMA fighters need to possess skills in all elements of fighting; thus, many MMA practitioners train in multiple styles like boxing, wrestling and jiu-jitsu – such as boxing or wrestling – in order to take down an opponent and apply various chokeholds and joint locks to subdue them.

Most mixed martial arts matches take place inside a cage or ring where two combatants fight until one of them is knocked out or the fight is stopped by a referee. Fighters must adhere to certain rules in order to protect both themselves and their opponents as well as maintain a clean sport, including no biting, eye gouging, kneeing downed opponents’ heads without permission, footballing kick an opposing fighter’s downed opponents, footballing kicking their opponent who has fallen down or 12-6 elbow strikes between bouts.

Although MMA may not seem like a traditional martial art, its effectiveness in both self-defense and competitive fights has proven otherwise. Studies have also demonstrated how training in MMA helps build confidence, discipline and patience within its students; increase cardiovascular endurance while teaching them how to remain calm under pressure.
