Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground.
In recent years, MMA became one of the fastest growing competitive sports worldwide. However, MMA is not new. Over 6000 years ago the earliest form of MMA was invented in ancient China called Shuai jiao.
A common misconception regarding MMA is that everything is allowed. MMA has strict safety rules.
