Mixed Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) as we know it today has its origins in the United States, with the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) playing a pivotal role in its development. The UFC was founded in 1993 by Rorion Gracie and Art Davie as a way to determine the most effective martial art in a real fight scenario.

The initial airings of the sport shocked many traditional martial artists as fighters fought in a much more realistic manner than a karate point match. The fighters were fit and ferocious, unlike many point champions of the day.
