SPORT MMA 2017
What is Sport MMA... Sport MMA is a sport format of Mixed Martial Arts which allows controlled strikes [ light contact and semi contact sparring ] as opposed to the ‘full contact’ nature of existing amateur and professional mma fights. Sport MMA provides a platform for kids and teenagers [ both male and female] to train and compete within a safe environment of the sport while training in all the different aspects of real MMA namely striking , takedowns and ground fighting. We are not taking away anything from the true nature of ‘Mixed Martial Arts’ rather solidifying its concepts through a scoring and point system easy to understand to the masses.
The fundamentals of Sport MMA comprise of techniques from traditional karate , Brazilian jiu-jitsu , judo , taekwondo and wrestling. It is a more realistic yet cultured approach to promoting the Mixed Martial Arts to children and women
What are the rules of Sport MMA... light contact rules focus on three mandatory scoring points : one for striking , one for a takedown [ with a follow up score ] and one for a submission [ or a submission attempt with proper form ]. The first player to score all three full points will be declared the winner. Alternatively the player leading with the highest score at the end of the time-limit wins. In the case of a draw at the end of the time limit a 30 second ‘sudden death’ [ a single technique score from any of the above] declares the winner.
