Got a leaflet though the post for the following competition:
Note there is a link for "MMA" and it states on the leaflet that there is a catagory for MMA. Sounds good, eh? I thought it might be an interesting AM competition for some of the new guys....
Here's the MMA link to the rules.... enjoy:
To sum up some of the interesting rules...
No bare chests
Gum Shield is an optional piece of safety equipment
Senior bouts are 2 x 2mins (!), with an additional 2 min round if a draw.There is a fourth 1min round if it still a draw after the 3rd... the refree will decide the winner if it goes the distance
They have their own weigh catagories, but if you are over 40.. ITS OPEN WEIGHT!
All stikes are LIGHT CONTACT only
Submissions are to be SQUEEZED on, not wrenched on
I expect to see more of this, as Trad arts and organisations attempt to 'cash in'.
