In Japan these contests were known as American style fighting and were managed under points of decision, best of three throw downs or victory by K.O. or submission.
1n 1936 a heavyweight boxer and an experienced wrestler competed in a mixed arts match which the wrestler won in less than a minute. After World War 1 the popularity of fighting waned and the sport divided into 2 branches called Shoot and Show. In the Shoot category, fighters competed to win and the Show category evolved into modern “professional” wresting.
And then, in the late 60’s and early 70’s, Bruce Lee introduced the concept of combining multiple physical arts to the west. Lee believed that "the best fighter is not a Boxer, Karate or Judo man. The best fighter is someone who can adapt to any style, to be formless, to adopt an individual's own style and not following the system of styles." Amongst many groups, including UFC, Bruce Lee is considered to be the father of Mixed Martial Arts.
MMA or Mixed Martial Arts competitions started in the United States with the UFC, or Ultimate Fighting Championship, in 1993. Since then athletes have won using many styles of Martial Art including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Japanese Shooto.
