Amateur Mixed Martial Arts

Amateur Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that incorporates striking (both standing and on the ground) and wrestling/grappling techniques. As governed by FILA (International Federation of Associated Wrestling Styles, the only international sports federation recognized by SportAccord and International Olympic Committee (IOC) that governs MMA), it is practiced within a safe and regulated environment which relies on a fair and objective scoring system and competition procedures similar to those in force in Olympic wrestling. Amateur MMA is practiced with board shorts and an rashguard along with approved protection gear that includes head gear, shin protectors, and gloves (7 oz.) that allow grabbing and holding the opponent for a comfortable application of grappling techniques. Amateur MMA counts eight weight categories for men and five weight categories for women:

Men: 62, 66, 71, 77, 84, 92, 100, +100 kg
Women: 53, 58, 64, 71, +71 kg

Famous quotes containing the words arts, martial, amateur and/or mixed:

    The arts are the salt of the earth; as salt relates to food, the arts relate to technology.
    Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe (1749–1832)

    Let the martial songs be written, let the dirges disappear. Let a
    race of men now rise and take control!
    Margaret Abigail Walker (b. 1915)

    The true gardener then brushes over the ground with slow and gentle hand, to liberate a space for breath round some favourite; but he is not thinking about destruction except incidentally. It is only the amateur like myself who becomes obsessed and rejoices with a sadistic pleasure in weeds that are big and bad enough to pull, and at last, almost forgetting the flowers altogether, turns into a Reformer.
    Freya Stark (1893–1993)

    Haiti is full of nonsense and superstition. They’re always mixed up with a lot of mysteries that’ll turn your hair gray.
    —Garnett Weston. Victor Halperin. Dr. Brunner (Joseph Cawthorn)
