ABOUT MARTIAL ARTS

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is everywhere you look so it’s hard to imagine a time when martial arts wasn’t part of American culture. But it wasn’t until the 1970s when the power of martial arts took root in the U.S. Martial arts films from Hong Kong and Hollywood and starring Bruce Lee pushed it into the mainstream. In the early 1990s a string of victories by Brazilian jiu jitsu champion, Royce Gracie popularized Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the United States and began the through line to what we now know as MMA.
