MMA stands for Mixed Martial Arts and is an umbrella term used to describe a combination of combat techniques used in the ring. While kickboxing lets you fight, you often attack, punch or kick standing up. MMA doesn’t have boundaries. There are lesser limits and more attack strategies to choose from. Everything depends on the competitor. Because there are different options for attacks, it also increases the risk of getting hit. In MMA, you need to be smart about your strategies and to take control of the game immediately.
