    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    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.
    Now go let somebody kick your ass then you can sue your school.

    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.

    I think stupid lawsuits by stupid people are stupid. Just taking a class in something does not
    preclude the possibility that you can fail.
