MMA is another term for mixed martial arts. Several fighting systems are utilized in the MMA. Therefore, players can use the techniques of Judo, Karate, Boxing, Wrestling, and many other fighting systems. Oftentimes, players combine ground and striking techniques in order to defeat their opponent. Stand up fighters in the United States way back in the early days were not prepared when they fall to the ground and ground fighters can easily defeat them; however, in the standing position, ground fighters have no luck. Because of this, fighters tried to learn many different systems since this was the only way to defeat their opponent no matter what position they end up in. New breed of fighters were born and MMA slowly gained popularity and acceptance.

Mixed martial art is considered a demanding sport. Many years ago, no rules were followed and so many players get injured. The games were bloody and some people did not appreciate it. Modern MMA games follow stricter rules or regulations these days and so players are guaranteed safe and protected. Because of the modifications of the games, many people are now interested in learning more about it. In fact, kids, teens, and adults love to enroll in MMA classes to learn various fighting systems and disciplines.

MMA has several components such as:

Striking – players who want to knock out their opponents use punches, elbows, kicks, or knee. He can be proclaimed a winner by submission, K.O., or the stoppage of the referee and corner man. Submission occurs when the opponent taps his hand because of manipulation techniques like strangulation or arm bar. Rear naked chokes are quite effective in submissions.

Ground and pound – this time, the fighter brings his opponent down by mounting him and pummeling him through strikes. Referee stoppage and K.O. can declare the winner.

Take down – this happens when the player is able to take his opponent to the ground or mat; his intention is to ground and pound or submission.

Sprawl – this takes place before the take down. If you’re the defender, you should put your hands on the shoulders of the other player and you need to sprawl your legs behind him or her. This movement can prevent take downs.

Shoot – this happens when you dive in on the legs of your opponent for the take down.

These are the basic components of the mixed martial arts. There are still others but as a beginner, you should learn about the basics first. Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can now move to intermediate or advanced knowledge.

Physical training is already part of MMA. Rigorous training can really exhaust you but you need to be prepared for everything. Weight training introduced together with cardio style trainings. In all the training sessions, you can improve endurance, stamina, and strength. You will encounter activities like sprints, rope skipping, and other high intensity exercises. Most trainings aim at preparing fighters to withstand rounds of extreme fighting.

Safety should not be disregarded to avoid death and injuries. The referee will ensure that players will not get severely injured in the fights.
