The concept of a person holding a grade in MMA
has been discussed around the world with no real
conclusion because, after all, MMA is by definition
a combination of various arts and does not normally
include belt gradings. However many practitioners
are now beginning to ask to be graded in some way.
The most acceptable way to grade in MMA is to be
judged fight per fight in competition, however some
MMA clubs are not as competitive as others so how
can they be graded?

Ju-Jitsu and the kicks and strikes from Kickboxing.
