MMA History

Mixed Martial Arts has its beginnings in Ancient Greece. It can be found in various parts of the world throughout history, and a form of MMA existed in Japan and Europe during the early 20th century. Vale tudo events began in Brazil during the early 1920s, and the “Gracie Challenge” became notable for pitting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters against opponents of other disciplines. Various other fighting styles such as shoot wrestling became popular under vale tudo events.

The modern incarnation of MMA developed with Bruce Lee and his mixed martial arts technique known as Jeet Kune Do. The term “MMA” came into usage in 1993, when a television critic referenced the mish-mash of different fighting skills in UFC 1.
