MT Bullshido in Ontario...if not Canada...
Okay so im going to be joining a MT school tomorrow (yeah), and I went in today to watch a class. After I had some Q and A with an instructor, and he told me a few shocking things.
-MT tournies are now legal in Ontario, but 3 levels exist. Each level has different equip requirements...the lowest has full gear (head, body, shin), and the last has no gear but the head.
-Regardless of where in Canada you have a sanctioned MT fight, no elbows of any type are allowed. You can clinch and knee till the cows come home, but gawd forbid you toss around an elbow.
I was quite shocked with this because that is one of the core strikes in MT. What do other MT canuks think of this? Is it the same in the US?
Will this lead to MT fighters that cant compete with MT fighters from other countries that allow elbows?????
