Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts

Modern MMA

Mixed Martial Arts was originally based around the concept of pitting different martial arts and fighting styles against each other in competition with minimal rules, in an attempt to determine which style would be more effective in a real combat situation.

Modern MMA Martial Arts competition is an evolution of such events, and rules have been implemented to promote acceptance of the sport, while at the same time maintaining as much of the original no-holds-barred concept as possible. There is however no general sanctioning body for the sport, and the sets of rules vary according to the laws of individual organizations and localities.

The techniques utilized in MMA Martial Arts competition generally fall into two categories: striking techniques (such as kicks, knees and punches) and grappling techniques (such as clinch holds, pinning holds, submission holds, sweeps, takedowns and throws).

Some unarmed hand to hand combat techniques are considered illegal in arguably all modern MMA Martial Arts competition, such as biting, eye-gouging, fish-hooking and small joint manipulation.

Over the last ten years strikes to the groin have become illegal in all legally sanctioned MMA Martial Arts organizations. The legality of other techniques such as elbows, headbutts and spinal locks vary according to competition or organization.

Victory is either gained by the judges decision after completing all rounds, a stoppage by the referee or the fight doctor (in the event that the competitor is injured or can no longer defend himself intelligently), a submission, by a competitors corner man (throwing in the towel), or knockout.

MMA modern training

Today, Mixed Martial Artists train in a variety of styles that have been proven effective in the ring, so that they can be effective in all the phases of combat. Although MMA fighters will try to play to their particular specialties, they will inevitably encounter all kinds of situations; a stand-up fighting specialist will probably get taken down at some point and a submission artist might need to fight standing-up for a while before he can complete a takedown.

A Mixed Martial Artist might train in a particular style to enhance his or her skills in the phase of combat that the style encompasses. Typical styles, known for their effectiveness, that have been trained prior to the MMA career, and that are trained individually to enhance a particular phase of combat, are: Competition requires training in striking, wrestling, and submission fighting.

MMA Styles

Stand-up: Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and sometimes Karate and Taekwondo are trained to improve footwork, elbowing, kicking, kneeing and punching.

Clinch: Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling, Sambo, and Judo are trained to improve clinching, take downs and throws, while Muay Thai is trained to improve the striking aspect of the clinch.

Ground: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Shoot Wrestling, Catch Wrestling, Judo, and Sambo are trained to improve submission holds, and defense against them. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and styles of amateur wrestling are trained to improve positioning.

MMA sport and competition

Many styles have to be adapted slightly for use in the sport. For example, several boxing stances are ineffective because they leave fighters vulnerable to leg kicks or takedowns. Similarly, Judo techniques have to be adapted to an opponent not wearing a Judo-Gi.

Commonly, modern day MMA fighters do not train in any particular style, but either train in multiple styles with multiple coaches, or train in teams with other MMA athletes focusing specifically on MMA fighting.

Conditioning, calisthenics and strength training are also important aspects of an MMA fighters training. Mixed Martial Arts competition is very demanding physically, and the athletes need to be in top shape to be successful.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai is the Thai name for a form of martial art practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Cambodia (where it is Pradal Serey), Myanmar, Vietnam (where it is known as Vo Tu Do), and Malaysia (where it is known as Tomoi). The different types of fighting in mainland South East Asia is analogous to the different types of Kung Fu in China and Silat in the South East Asian islands or Malay world.

Traditional Muay Thai Martial Arts has a long history in Thailand as a fighting style used by the military. The military style of Muay Thai is called Lerdrit, while todays Sport Muay Thai slightly varies from the original art and uses kicks and punches in a ring and with gloves similar to those used in western boxing. Muay Thai Martial Arts is referred to as The Science of Eight Limbs, as the hands, elbows, knees and shins are all used extensively in this art.

A master practitioner of Muay Thai Martial Arts thus has the ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact, as opposed to two points (fists) in boxing and four points (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts. Muay Thai Martial Arts is an especially versatile, brutal and straightforward fighting style.

Techniques

The basic offensive techniques in Muay Thai Martial Arts use fists, elbows, shins, feet, and knees to strike the opponent. To bind the opponent for both offensive and defensive purposes, small amounts of stand-up grappling are used: the clinch.

Muay Thai Martial Arts is often a fighting art of attrition, where opponents exchange blows with one another. This is certainly the case with traditional stylists in Thailand, but is a less popular form of fighting in the contemporary world fighting circuit.

With the success of Muay Thai in Mixed Martial Arts MMA fighting, it has become the de facto martial art of choice for competitive stand-up fighters. As a result, it has evolved in order and incorporated much more powerful hand striking techniques used in western style boxing, and the Thai style of exchanging blow for blow is no longer favorable.

When Muay Thai fighters compete against fighters of other styles (and if the rules permit it), they almost invariably emphasize elbow (sok) and knee (kao) techniques to gain a distinct advantage in fighting.

Almost all techniques in Muay Thai Martial Arts use the entire body movement, rotating the hip with each kick, punch and block. The rotation of the hips in Muay Thai techniques and intensive focus on core muscles (abdominal and surrounding muscles) is very distinctive and is what sets Muay Thai Martial Arts apart from other styles of martial arts.
