History of MMA
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) dates all the way back to the Olympics in ancient Greece and originated as hand-to-hand combat performed as a sport called Pankration. There were only two rules back in Greece which was no biting and no eye-gouging. This was a very popular sport where Greek competitors became heroes and legends. Teachings of ancient Greek Pankration spread to India thanks to Alexander the Great. A Buddhist monk travelling through India soon picked up on aspects of Pankration and brought that knowledge to China where Asian Martial Arts like Kung Fu, Judo and Karate were born. As people branched into new lands over the years, they took these arts and developed them, which soon created new Martial Arts. For example, a Judo expert travelled the world and ended up in Brazil to share his knowledge and experience which soon led to the development of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
As Martial Arts became more popular over time, so did the idea of mixed-style competitions, usually when a practitioner of one martial art challenged a practitioner of a different martial art to see who comes out on top. For instance, a Thai Boxer coming up against a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner then realising that they need to become more adept at defending take-downs which would lead them to train with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters.
