    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Is MMA a style now?

    I hear people say they study mma like its a style?

    Do you mma guys consider MMA a style now or a collection of styles.

    Do you really think learning a selection of your favourite techniques gives you a complete all round system to fight with.

    School Me and not just on my spelling/grammar.

    MMA, Mixed Martial Arts, is technically a style, I believe. It just incorporates other styles to make a single one.

    I don't know what you mean by a selection of our favorite techniques. Groundfighting, stand up grappling, striking, I'd say it's a pretty well rounded system.

    Your grammer.

    They are foaming the runway in Trollshido.

    Pretending this is a serious question, MMA is a ruleset. There is an orthodoxy at any given moment as to what is currently producing wins under the current ruleset. At the moment, Muay Thai plus BJJ, with a concentration on GnP could be in the lead. However, a good boxer could learn leg checks and escapes and do fine. A judoka or Samboist could go right in.

    For the most part, people advertising MMA as a style are mcdojos that are updating their resumes.

    Mixed Martial Arts (Plural) A style (singular)

    No, plural things have not become singular. You can relax.

    That's actually a really good point. I always thought of it, though, as a style, since it just mixes a bunch of styles.

    No, it's a pair of scissors. So it's a plural. I don't ask you to hand me one of my glass, I ask for my glasses.

    Also no it's not a style. Certain things almost everyone uses, the jab, the rnc, the double leg. But it's far from a style.

    But a boxer doesn't really know how to grapple. Likewise a grappler doesn't know how to box.
