Xtreme Martial Arts
Xtreme Martial Arts (or XMA) is a recent 'Free Style' martial art style that incorporates elements of traditional martial arts with gymnastic moves such as flips and somersaults. Great emphasis is placed on showmanship as opposed to actual combat techniques, especially with martial arts weapons. However, some of the moves can be applied to kumite (sparring) or combat and self defense.
XMA is very similar to Chinese Wushu in that eye catching spins and acrobatic maneuvers are the main focus. Therefore, it has found great popularity in modern martial arts movies. As with Wushu, XMA requires great levels of fitness and flexibility in order to perform many of the moves. In competitions, competitors are judged on originality of technique and overall athletic ability.
