What is Mixed Martial Arts?
You have probably heard of karate or judo. But did you know that there is such a thing called mixed martial arts?
Mixed martial arts or MMA is a full contact combat support which allows players to fight in a competition using various fighting techniques. The rules allow the fighters to use various striking and grappling techniques both while standing and on the ground.
But MMA was first introduced by the Greeks in 648 B.C. Back then, it was called the pankration which was introduced into the Olympic Games. Records show that there was a similar version of this in the 1800’s which continued on in the early 1900’s until the MMA came out in 1993 with the establishment of the Ultimate Fighting Championship or UFC.
The difference between the MMA and those in the past is that this was initially created to find out which hand to hand combat technique works best to fight in a combat situation so fighters of various disciplines were gathered. During that time, there were only a few rules but more than 10 years later, additional ones were adopted to increase the safety of those who computed and to promote the sport.
