    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    The martial art that survives with the general public will be the one that has the best movie made about it.

    How many people tried out Aikido because of Segal or Muay Thai because of Tony Jaa? The art itself was probably of little interest to them.

    I suspect that initially the art itself is of little importance it is only an introduction into a deeper world and not everyone cares enough to dig.

    So training to deal with a trained, aggressive and committed opponent who will have a myriad of tried and tested combat techniques in both striking and grappling is not self-defence how?

    Last time I checked combat athletes, pro or am did incredibly well in self defence situations.

    If person trains hard at blocking blows and striking back surely they are in a good position to defend themself, a way better position than someone who does not?

    By that criteria, I guess boxing will always be around.
