New Jersey has always been on the forefront of combat sports, and 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 and, in a similar sense, the state’s martial arts hall hopes to recognize and honor those involved in combat martial arts such as MMA and Muay Thai. New Jersey is building a rich tradition in non-boxing martial arts and our goal is to recognize these individuals and entities.
