Many historians agree that the mixed martial arts of ancient Greece and very similar to the mixed martial arts of modern day.
However, mixed martial arts of today are considered to be one of the most regulated and controlled sports in the world.
For some reason, people have trouble wrapping their heads around the concept that women train without it being connected to any kind of man.
The first documented use of the term mixed martial arts was in a review of UFC 1 by television critic Howard Rosenberg in 1993.
During the early 20th century, various mixed-style contests took place throughout Japan and the Pacific Rim. created the first regulated MMA league in the United States, named Tough Guy Contest, later renamed Battle of the Superfighters.
Not every women in a martial arts class is there because of a man. I’m sure that you, someone who has never trained anything, could totally level me, even though I train multiple martial arts, and the only conceivable reason that you’re not is because you’re too honorable to hit a girl. Usually said by the bro at Buffalo Wild Wings wearing a Tapout shirt. A lot of people have asked me why I don’t choose a ‘safer’ sport that is more ‘appropriate for women’. Then I ask them why Zumba is more appropriate for women than martial arts.
First off, I seriously hope that wasn’t your best attempt at a pick up line. And if you think girls fighting is hot, you definitely haven’t seen the sweaty, ‘Jiu Jitsu hair don’t care’ girls who walk out of a martial arts gym. Usually asked by concerned looking female coworkers. Just because it’s a physically aggressive sport doesn’t mean it’s inappropriate for women.
Many don’t understand why a woman would choose such an aggressive sport, so we end up having to deal with ridiculous questions and assumptions all the time.
These are just some of the things I heard while I was training that I guarantee women who train martial arts are tired of hearing.
At the peak of my training, I was taking classes in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and boxing.
Women who train in martial arts confound a lot of people.
Mixed Martial Arts is a regulated full contact combat sport between two fighters trained in various martial arts forms.
Mixed Martial Arts or MMA involves both stand up and ground fighting so it employs both striking and grappling techniques from a variety of different martial arts styles such as boxing, submission fighting, catch wrestling, jiu jitsu, judo, thai boxing, karate as well as others.
However, when a mixed martial artist has disconnected a fellow fighter from consciousness, there remain very few questions that need to be addressed.
