' "Did you see the big fight this weekend'" The question used to be about boxing matches, when the giants of the fight world were Mike Tyson and Roy Jones. Now fans are leaving the sweet science in droves for the combat sport of the future: mixed martial arts (MMA). MMA has drawn millions on cable and network television, as well as out-performed professional wrestling and boxing on pay-per-view. Fans are attracted to the sport, but unlike boxing (where strategy and technique are limited to using both your left and right hands), an MMA fight can be surprisingly complicated. The MMA Encyclopedia puts the fighters, the facts, and the fundamentals of the world's fastest growing sport at your fingertips as the definitive reference guide to mixed martial arts. The encyclopedia will break the MMA language barrier for those who don't know a wristlock from a wristwatch, while at the same time offering perspective and analysis that will entertain the hardcore fan who already has the basics down pat. With three appendices that detail the results of every MMA'fight in history, this the ultimate reference book for the ultimate sport.

Fistic combat represents the greatest human drama in all of sport. Roman gladiators thrilled citizens and emperors alike when they entered the octagon to face an intense, life-threatening experience. Boxing, the sport of kings, also has its roots in the ancient civilizations of Greece and Rome. Banned in 500 A.D. by the Emperor Theodoric, it resurfaced twelve centuries later in England. John Milton praised it as a noble art for building character in young men, and sports writer A.J. Leibling dubbed it the Sweet Science. Many of its major protagonists - men such as Joe Louis, Rocky Marciano and Muhammad Ali - have become transcendent, near-mythic heroes. But boxing is not the only combat sport, and mixed martial arts, in all their ferocious beauty, represent the fastest growing sports genre in the world. Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) has joined boxing in paying seven figures to some of its champions, and draws millions in its pay-per-view events. This book details leading figures in boxing, sumo wrestling, kickboxing, Greco-Roman wrestling, and mixed martial arts (including organizations such as Ultimate Fighting, PRIDE, K-1, Total Combat, and SportFighting). Over 150 entries cover champions, contenders, and other famous combatants from all over the world, as well as legendary promoters, managers, trainers, and events. Also included in this encyclopedia are sidebars on controversies, highlights, brief bios, and other noteworthy events, along with a general timeline. .

The book contains over 1,000 full-color photographs demonstrating the moves that made the author the most feared competitor in BJJ circles and now one of the most sought-after instructors. Jiu-Jitsu or Jujutsu came into prominence in the early 90's when jiu-jitsu expert Royce Gracie won the first, second, and fourth Ultimate Fighting Championships against much larger opponents who were using other styles such as boxing, muay thai, karate, and wrestling. Since then it has become one of the most popular styles in MMA due to its focus on ground fighting. Learn the techniques that have proven dominant in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournaments and in the Mixed Martial Arts cage: Takedowns The Closed Guard Passing The Closed Guard Butterfly Guard Open Guard Pass Side Control Half Guard Back Mount With sections devoted to both gi and no-gi techniques, whether training for a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu tournament or a Mixed Martial Arts fight, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one book no true competitor can afford to miss.

Kettlebell training is a form of resistance training with the kettlebell. This encyclopedia and its volumes cover all kettlebell exercises with photos, descriptions, and some having step-by-step instructions. The information in this book will allow you to pick kettlebell exercises and create your own kettlebell workout and/or verify that you’re doing the exercises you’re already doing, correctly. This volume covers kettlebells isometric, lift, kneeling, and lunge exercises. Each subject has just enough information to keep it basic and understandable. Kettlebell Isometrics Isometric relates to muscular action in which tension is developed without contraction of the muscle. There is no movement, action, or change, also known as static. A good example of an isometric exercise is the plank or iron cross. Isometrics can also be mixed with dynamic exercise, for example, a squat with frontal hold. Kettlebell Kneeling To kneel means to be in or assume a position in which the body is supported by a knee or the knees. You can perform movements into kneeling positions like surrenders or you can perform exercises in which you remain in kneeling position like kneeling hip thrusts. Kettlebell Lift To lift something means to raise to a higher position or level. In effect, almost all kettlebell exercises could be thought of like a lift, i.e. snatch, press, clean, swing, etc. However, we’re going to classify a lift as a movement in which the kettlebell is brought from a low to a higher position via a slow movement. We’re excluding explosive movements as they have their own classifications, i.e. press, snatch, clean, and swing. Kettlebell Lunge To define the lunge a few assumptions will be made. The dictionary defines the word as making a sudden forward thrust with part of the body, in our context that part of the body would be the leg. A lunge is also the basic attacking move in fencing, which is very similar to the lunge exercise as we know it. The lunge as we know it not only moves forward but all different directions, back (reverse), side, etc. The difference between the lunge used in fencing and exercise is that the back knee usually bends and gently taps the floor to set a standard for depth.

This volume covers kettlebells carries, cleans, curl, and getups. Each subject has just enough information to keep it basic and understandable. Kettlebell Carry Support and move a kettlebell from one place to another. The support can be provided in the form of overhead, racked, hanging, or a mixture of aforementioned methods. Kettlebell Clean A kettlebell clean is an explosive lower-body powered movement that lifts a kettlebell from a lower position to a higher position which is called racking position. The clean can be performed from the ground (dead), hanging position, or a during a ballistic movement like the swing. Anytime a clean is performed with a swing, then that swing can be either one of the following movements, hip hinge swing, pendulum swing, or squat swing. Kettlebell Curl Curl refers to the curling motion which in exercise can be performed with the elbow or knee joint, i.e. Biceps Curls or Leg Curls. Think flexion and extension of the elbow joint, or decreasing and increasing the angle of the elbow joint. When it comes to kettlebell training the common curling exercise used is the biceps curl, although technically speaking the leg curl could be performed laying down and the foot through the window of the kettlebell. Kettlebell Get-up To get up into a fully erect position any way possible from laying flat on the floor. This can be done with 1 or 2 kettlebells positioned overhead or racked.

The information in this book will allow you to pick kettlebell exercises and create your own kettlebell workout and/or verify that you’re doing the exercises you’re already doing, correctly. This volume covers kettlebells presses, push-ups, rows, and snatches. Each subject has just enough information to keep it basic and understandable. Kettlebell Press The press and push movement are very similar when you look at the arms, they’re always extending, whether overhead or above the chest (laying down), however, there is a clear difference between the two. With the press, you exert physical force on the kettlebell to move it away from you rather than to move yourself away from it (push). Kettlebell Push-up Similar to the press, you exert physical force on the kettlebell, but in this case, it’s in order to move yourself away from it. A push-up done on the floor would be pushing yourself away from the floor. If you take the same push-up position and turn it around—laying flat—and perform the same movement it becomes as press as you’re moving the object away from yourself. Kettlebell Row When looking at the movement in boat rowing it’s always a pull and push off the oar. In the context of kettlebell training, a row is always a pull as gravity replaces the push. A row has to be performed in such a way that you’re acting directly against gravity. The focus of the kettlebell row are the posterior muscles of the upper back. Kettlebell Snatch A snatch is a movement in which the kettlebell rapidly raised from a lower position—always below the hips—to above the head in one continuous smooth explosive movement. An example of a few common start positions are dead, hanging, and swinging.

The information in this book will allow you to pick kettlebell exercises and create your own kettlebell workout and/or verify that you’re doing the exercises you’re already doing, correctly. This volume covers kettlebell combos, isolation, and multi-planar exercises. Each subject has just enough information to keep it basic and understandable. Kettlebell Combo A kettlebell combo is a combination of several exercises put together and performed one after the other, usually in a flowing manner. Combos can be as simple as 2 exercises combined, but also as complex as 6 exercises or more combined. They are also referred to as a complex. A good example of some well-known combos are the clean and jerk, clean and press, a good example of a more complex combo is the UKC (Ultimate Kettlebell Combo) which consists out of a deadlift, hang clean, swing clean, swing, half snatch, and strict press. A really simple but powerful combo is the double kettlebell half snatch and squat thruster, also known as WBKC (World’s Best Kettlebell Combo). Isolation Exercises This book wouldn’t be complete without some isolation exercises. Isolation exercises are those that involve only one joint and a limited number of muscle groups. Isolation allows you to focus more and go heavier. A good example is an exercise that is performed standing up, standing up will require more muscle recruitment, whereas a laying down exercise will take out all those muscles that were required to stand up, i.e. calves, quadriceps, gluteals, erector spinae, and many more. Multi-planar Exercises The exercises listed in this category are not the only multi-planar exercises, there are many more, a good example of a popular multi-planar exercise not listed here is the kettlebell snatch. The reason the exercises are listed under this category is that there was not one parent exercise category under which they fall. In basic terms, multi-planar exercises are those that go up, down, back, to the side, etc. they move through multiple planes of movement in one rep. A good example of a non-multi-planar exercise is the shoulder press. Note, whether an exercise is or isn’t multi-planar doesn’t make it a bad or good exercise, it just describes that it goes through multiple planes of movement.
