MMA, BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU, SHOOT-BOXING
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport not an actual martial art. As seen in the UFC, it allows striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, using techniques from other combat sports and martial arts. MMA requires the practitioner to use striking & footwork from Muay Thai, Clinch techniques from Muay Thai and Grappling & ground fighting & submissions from Grappling & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the opponent. Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training.
