    No I don't want two scissors, just one.

    I wrestle with the etymology of this, actually.

    I train in something distinct. It is not separate clinics in single range skills i go on to synthesize for myself. It is an evolved, composite product. It has a lineage. It doesn't have a name. It's FOR mma. But not exclusively. I'll take it for self defense over escapist paramilitary bullshit or half-complete single range training.

    It's certainly a complete treatment of every range, not some grab bag of "favorite techniques"
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Yes

    It has a proven core of techniques from wrestling, boxing, BJJ and Muay thai and a competition system to use those techniques.

    That's not to say that it can't evolve and that there aren't many people who specialize in one aspect over an other, but MMA has some techniques that everyone should find similar.

    Such as the double leg take down, not unique to MMA but a core technique in MMA training.

    Do you mma guys consider MMA a style now or a collection of styles.
    .
    MMA is a ruleset for applying different styles to combat. This ha been discussed in a bunch of threads, but whatever.

    For the last 10 years on this site, members have been saying that MMA is a rule set you train for, rather than a style itself.

    At this point, considering how many MMA gyms there are out there, I'd say we're well into the transition between MMA as a rule set and MMA as a style.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I'll agree with JNP when I see more gyms with a single MMA teacher who teaches everything. In my area that's still a rarity. For every Omega type teacher, I still see three and four coached, single disciplined, schools with an included MMA class.

    I would say it's either a ruleset in the process of becoming a style, or a very new style. I train to compete in MMA (and no-Gi submission wrestling), I don't train in Boxing, wrestling, BJJ or Muay Thai. I would actually like to see nomenclature that distinguishes between "MMA the Art" and "MMA the competition". Then again, competing in Judo (for example), and training in Judo, doesn't seem to require different terms.

    All you have to do is look at TMA and see you don't want that distinction.
