Mixed Martial Arts Resources

Mixed martial arts is the combat sport in which two competitors attempt to achieve dominance over one another by utilizing a wide variety of permitted martial arts techniques. These techniques generally fall into three categories: striking (punches, elbows, and knees), grappling (clinches, takedowns, throws, and ground fighting), and finishing holds (joint-locks and chokeholds). Victory is gained through knock-out, submission (one fighter concedes victory to the other by tapping the mat or his opponent with his hand), or stoppage by the referee, the fight doctor or a competitor's corner man. Previously mixed martial arts was also known as "No Holds Barred", but this term is now technically incorrect; it is no longer an accurate description of the modern competitions which incorporate a list of rules necessary for the competitors' safety.

Mixed martial arts is also used to describe any hybrid style of martial arts which incorporates techniques and ideologies from multiple different martial arts. This especially applies to mixed martial arts styles which incorporate a mixture of ground fighting, stand-up striking, and take-downs in their techniques.
