Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
Originating from the full contact sport of Vale Tudo in Brazil, the sport was brought to the United States by the Gracie family in 1993 with the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Originally, the sport was promoted as a competition to determine the most effective martial art in hand-to-hand combat.
However, it wasn’t long before the fighters realized that if they wanted to be competitive among the best, they needed to train in additional disciplines. Fighters began to morph into well-rounded, balanced athletes that could fight standing up or on the ground. This blend of fighting styles and skills became known as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).
