SOKE ? used in thread discussing why someone would start their own ma style.
Vale Tudo and NHB aren't styles but types of competition.
Mixed Martial Arts is a style if you like. Theres also Sambo,Pancrase etc.
Be careful of using the words 'Ultimate Fighting' as the UFC may sue you!
In our organization, Chung Do Kwan is used after Taekwondo. So it's written: Taekwondo Chung Do Kwan or TKD CDK.
Yah, the UFC is going a little nutts about that. Politics and economics should stay out of the Martial Arts. Like it ever will though.
Thats not an abbreviation, that is a Japanese word that is usually used as "founder of a style."
Just learned this one...HDGD - Haidong Gumdo
Thanks for the info!
Thanks guys I was also a little confused.
Surprisingly enough some of the other arts with abbreviations are as follows: Well for the record these are the ones that I most commonly use.

I've seen IMA applied to Indonesian martial arts and, more commonly, internal martial arts (e.g., taijiquan, xingyi, and bagua).
I am just marvelling if encompassing VT = Vale Tudo would signify things like UFC = Ultimate Fighting Championship could be included. Are they alike sufficient to encompass all alike events or are they distinct sufficient to encompass some but not others? I considered they were all alike things, but I don't actually know. That's about all that arrives to brain right now. You've currently enclosed the other rudimentary ones I've glimpsed around.
Krav Maga = KM
