should TMA schools be held legal responsible if their students cant defend themselves
In the TMA vs MMA arguments,a lot of TMA protectionist, used the arguement that TMA,may not be effective in the ring,but their practioner could defend themselves against the average attactker in the street even though there is eveidence to the contrary. In another thread a poster mention a female HKD black belt being beaten and raped"" if this student could prove by controlled testing, that the majority of the advanced students,could not defend themselves against an average attacker: should that school have to pay money
and have their license revoked.
In America if you sell a faulty product you can be sued whether if its a bad drug. A gun that is faulty that goes off when it shouldnt etc etc.
cant the same concept be applied to martial arts.
Should driving schools be held responsible when someone with a driving license causes a traffic accident?
This is the most brilliant idea I have ever heard.

Should MMA schools be sued when one of their fighters loses an amateur bout?

I've been to a couple big mixed style tournaments, and I can tell you this: even though a lot of arts probably won't work well in self defense, you'd have to prove that they were actually good at that style first, and most students kinda suck, even at their own crappy style.
If the driving instructor is teaching them to drive in a manner likely to cause an accident, a case could be made, especially if the the curricula is at odds with what conventional schools teach. To apply that example to a TMA would be far-fetched at best, since there is no SD orthodoxy, but a well-funded lawyer might be able to make a case against a school that suggested chi balls as a primary defensive response.

Is this a serious question? What happens when an mmaer gets his/her ass beat or raped?
