Martial arts rules generally regulate weight classes, no-no's during fighting, and approved ways to end a fight. Technical knockout (TKO). A technical knockout, when a fight is ended by the referee, doctor, or fighter's corner, can be called in a few ways. The referee can call one when a fighter is no longer defending himself, usually due to an effective attack by his opponent. A doctor can also call a TKO if it's clear that continuing the fight could be dangerous. And finally, a fighter's corner can throw in a towel to admit defeat, resulting in a TKO MMA fighters use a variety of techniques and strikes from different martial arts such as punches , kicks , knees, elbows , throws , takedowns , and submissions such as leglocks , armbars , chokes , rear naked chokes , etc . Headbutting and groin shots as well as eye gouging and small joint manipulation have since been outlawed in MMA competition Training techniques for mixed martial arts include shin and bone conditioning , heavybag work , punching the speed bag , focus mitts , kicking bamboo trees , weightlifting , strength training , exercises , different fight specific exercise , sparring and different drills Muay thai is the science of using your shins , knees , fists and elbows . It is purely a striking art that many mixed martial artists incorporate into their training regime Karate , muay thai , brazillian jiu jitsu , judo , boxing , and wrestling are all great martial arts MMA and lots of fighters study these arts to improve their mma game Athletic commissions from several states created the Unified Rules of Mixed Martial Arts, a set of rules that have been adopted by fighting promotions worldwide. These rules are the most widely used rules for MMA. No matter where you're fighting, one of the most basic rules of MMA is that you must fight within your weight class. For instance, a male lightweight who weighs 150 pounds would never be matched with a male heavyweight who weighs 240 pounds. That kind of pairing is saved solely for cartoons If you don't make weight for a match, you can be disqualified and possibly fined by the promotion. The following tables are rundowns of the specific weight classes defined in the Unified Rules of MMA. Although every MMA fighting organization has its own specific rules, some universal no-no's do exist. They're listed in the Unified Rules of MMA, but here's a quick look at what's not allowed: No groin attacks. No knees to the head on a grounded opponent. No strikes to the back of the head or the spine. No head butts. (Sorry, soccer fans.) No eye gouging. No fish hooking. No fingers in an opponent's orifices. (Eww!) No biting. No hair pulling. (Besides, that's so second grade.) No strikes or grabbing of the throat. No manipulation of the fingers or toes. No intentional grabbing of the ring or cage. No intentional throwing of your opponent outside of the ring or cage. The rules of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) differ slightly from one promotion to the next because each fighting organization can create unique rules. For example, the regulations for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) may differ slightly from the rules for Strikeforce. Every event must comply with the athletic commission rules of the state in which the event is being held. Accidentally performing one of these actions in a fight earns you an automatic warning from the referee. If your opponent was injured from your accidental action, he'll get five minutes to recover. Approved ways to end an MMA fight An MMA competition can end in one of several ways: Decision. If a fight lasts all rounds, the outcome is decided by three judges. kung fu , karate , judo , jiu jitsu , ninjitsu , kenpo , shotokan , boxing , grappling , vale tudo , taekwondo , greco roman wrestling , pankration , mma , brazillian jiu jitsu , aikido , akido , ufc , savate , wing chun , sambo , freestyle wrestling , fencing , capoeira , jkd or jeet kune do , shootfighting , military martial arts , krav maga , sumo , ninjutsu , hapkido , tang soo do , silat , bare knuckle boxing , heavybag , weights , weightlifting , dana white , ken shamrock Each fighting promotion has its own unique point system. Disqualification (DQ). Think of this as a sort of "three strikes and you're out" policy. Each time a fighter engages in an illegal move, he receives a warning. After three warnings, he's disqualified. A DQ can also be called if a fighter has been injured by an illegal move that seemed intentional. Forfeit. A fighter can announce a forfeit before a match begins if he's injured. Knockout (KO). A knockout is when a fighter loses consciousness thanks to his opponent's strikes. No contest. If both fighters violate the rules, or if a fighter is injured by an unintentional illegal action, a no-contest call can result. No contest is rarely called in MMA fights. Submission
