What is Striking MMA?

The rules are intuitive as they include all the techniques which have made mixed martial arts popular except with the exclusion of the ground and pound techniques. Athletes are still allowed to submit their opponents to the ground and have a maximum of 30 seconds time to finish the submission to get the tap out and win. The fighter who was saved by 30 sec. the rule gets a point deducted similar to a knockdown in stand-up.

Medals at GAMMA World Championships

India had a great showing at the GAMMA World Championships which was held back in 2019. The team secured a total of seven medals and finished eighth in the medal standings. The team won three silver medals and four bronze medals at the event.
