check this website out for some other disciplines.

Chin na: (China) The Chinese art of seizing and locking that uses striking and seizing of acupuncture points, grasping of tendons and blood vessels and the locking of joints, techniques widely incorporated into Chinese fighting arts. Included also is a mix of throwing, takedowns, kicking, punching and joint manipulations that parallel techniques in judo, jujitsu and karate. Techniques are also associated with dim mak.

SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!!!!

Dim Mak is sick, I used to be obsessed with it when I was younger.

I think MMA is still in its infancy, and most any well-developed martial art can have a place in any major MMA organization. Assuming a fighter is educated, and capable of defending the more popular styles, any combat art is viable. I think if anyone has proven that, it's Lyoto Machida. With the UFC now being televised in Asia, I think there's a strong probability that new fights, along with martial arts will begin to filter into the MMA scene. It comes back to however, the primary responsibility of any fighter being that of knowing how to defend your opponent's techniques. I think that should be put above which style you use to attack your opponent.

Oh, and a brief edit. A couple of styles I'd like to see in MMA. Goju Ryu, Tae Kwon Do, Akido, Kung Fu.

Hey guy, first timer here. As far as new styles go, the deciding factor is how they'd fit within the rules of MMA. A lot of martial arts just aren't suited simply because they are based more on fighting rather than competition. Even BJJ, which dominated in the early years of the UFC isn't as feared now, not only because more are incorporating it but because of the newer restrictions. For example, arts such as Goju Ryu, Kung Fu, etc. that Servatose listed rely alot on open handed techniques and locks and chokes not permitted--even gloves restrict akido.

Hah...hah...I think everyone was. That shit should be true though as it's based on pressure points.

Someone in MMA right now is learning JKD. I'd like to see some more Tae Kwon Do as the kicks are super sick.

Unfortunately havn't seen anyone with a kung fu background or at least none that I know of.

Well I'm a black belt in Joe Son Do. I had to train a whole 5 minutes to get that prestigous honor too.

to the fellow/fellowette who said tkd...tkd is totally practical in mma, i kick muay thai guy's asses with leg kicks and body kicks all day long...and they never see the random side kick to the stomach coming. just train in some boxing and tdd and it becomes pretty damn effective.

the only reason it gets a bad image is because of all the mcdojos out there

Steve Jennum listed his style as 'ninjitsu' at UFC 3. No joke.
Jason Delucia was listed as a kung fu fighter.
