MMA isn't a Martial Arts style at all IMO. Its an eclectic mix of various forms of Martial Arts. However, there are gyms who teach "MMA" which is to say they teach Muay Thai, American Wrestling and Brazilian Jui-Jitsu and the act of using them together in the same room. But I think sometimes the line is blurred as to what is defined as a Martial Arts style and what is not.
I had a huge argument over this with some MMA guys on some other forum. Those guys who train in MMA, insist that MMA is a martial art which has it's own methodology of learning, and that learning other arts if you wanna fight in MMA is bad because it will give you bad habits.
