New Jersey has always been on the forefront of combat sports. Some of the biggest bouts in MMA, kickboxing and Muay Thai history have taken place at various venues around the state. New Jersey has had a Boxing Hall of Fame since the 1960′s. NJMAHOF’s sponsors are now recognizing and honoring those involved in combat martial arts such as Muay Thai and MMA. New Jersey is building a rich tradition in non-boxing martial arts. The goal is to recognize these individuals and entities.
