MMA is not only a martial art, this is a whole formula standing behind it. MMA is a shortcut derived from Mixed Martial Arts, which means a combination of arts. The rule here is to defeat your rival by knockout, technical knockout, submission or by decision when the fight is over before time is up. Both fight techniques are allowed: sprawl & brawl and ground choke. So all punches, kicks and locks. Only those techniques are forbidden that put your health or life in danger. Thanks to a cross-sectoral trainings, most of those training MMA are comprehensive sports players.
