THERE ARE TWO MAIN STYLES OF MMA:
1. STREET MMA – The principles of Mixed Martial Arts as applied for non-sport situations. Street MMA calls for large amounts of few rules sparring, and we encourage our students to do sport MMA sparring and competitions.
The philosophy behind street MMA is that sport MMA needs some changes in strategy ( less emphasis on staying on the ground, awareness of weapons and multiple opponents).
2. SPORT MMA – Mixed Martial Arts designed for sporting competition, such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship( UFC ), Pride Fighting Championship or Vale Tudo style fighting matches. These matches usually have two unarmed persons fighting with the following core rules:
1. No biting 2. No eye-gouging 3. No groin attacks
