    Civilized MMA

    Just recently I was driving past a school in Colorado Springs that had been there about one or two years. I looked at the sign and it had changed. Not only did it read "Karate," but now it had "Mixed Martial Arts" above it. Talk about jumping on the band wagon.

    The thing that got me though and I want to hear everyone's comments on it is; on a scrolling banner they had "Civilized MMA." When I checked out their website I saw this article: http://www.paulsensfamilymartialarts...iuBujitsu.html

    I love how they practice Kata, but call it MMA.

    What sold me on them, was that they offer Zumba classes.

    OK I see a Vietnamese martial art, Shotokan Karate and this:
    Go Jiu Bujitsu combines: the principles and traditional hand strikes, kicks, blocks, stances and kata of Shotokan Karate; the principles and traditional rolls, falls, throws, joint manipulations/locks, chokes, submissions and fluidity of Japanese/“Brazilian” Jiu Jitsu, Neko Ryu Goshin Jitsu and Judo; the principles and traditional punching techniques and movements of Boxing; as well as many effective Military and Law Enforcement control techniques and weapons defense tactics

    Damn! For once I'd like to long on to this site and leave with answers instead of more mind boggling questions.
