Abstract

With the recent emergence of a new, international and multidisciplinary academic field dedicated to martial arts studies (Bowman, 2015), interest in the value of sport psychology research for understanding and making effective interventions into such practices is warranted. The reported use of sport psychology within combat sports (mixed martial arts, boxing, judo, etc.) has received relatively little attention in the way of academic research or applied case studies within recent sport psychology literature. This article highlights two specific areas of interest: these are psychological preparation and weight regulation within combat sports.
