The statement complete martial system has come up a lot lately in conversations i have been having. I have heard several definitions from several different folks and I was curious what you folks thought. I think a system is complete if it contains.
1. Striking techniques. (kicks, punches, eye gouges….ect)
3. Ground fighting (hold downs, arm bars, chokes…ect.)
I would also like to add that a complete system and complete training program are two different things in my view. For example for a training program to be complete you would have to add.
5.) Conditioning (weights, cardio, whatever.)
6.) Research of other styles. (The whole know your enemy thing.)
Please tell me what you think
