MMA AS A HOBBY

MMA is suitable for men and women of all ages as fitness training. For those, interested in competing, it is also possible to practise it on a competitive level and participate in national and world championships. However, the majority of MMA practitioners practise it only as a hobby.

THE ANCIENT OLYMPICS

The roots of MMA are in pankration in the Ancient Greek Olympics. Pankration meaning ‘all-power’ in Greek was introduced as an Olympic Sport in 648 BC. It quickly became one of the most admired sports, and the champion of pankration was considered to be the king of sports in the Hellenistic World.

The modern culture of MMA comes from Brazil, where the Gracie family started teaching the new style of Jiu-Jitsu, namely Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The head of the family, Carlos Gracie often challenged sportsmen with different fighting styles to MMA matches to demonstrate the effectiveness of Jiu-Jitsu. The Gracie family has maintained the culture of the match in MMA in Brazil for the whole 20th century.
