    Can't remember where I saw that, but I'm not sure how good of an idea that might be.

    But I'd have to see this cirriculum to make a judgement.
    No you wouldn't a Greg jackson black belt would quite simply be a kill monster. You would not walk up to that guy and tell him you do not like the way he does and arm bar.

    Omega would you mind expanding on this a bit? I think Im following you but want to be sure I understand your point fully. Are you stating that karate isn't a style because it is such a large umbrella for individual ryu's that you do consider styles? Or am I misunderstanding, if I am please elaborate a bit further if you don't mind.

    No, that's exactly what I'm saying. I tell guys at my gym you're not doing kickboxing in this class. You're doing Muay Thai. It takes them a bit to really let that sink in.

    Ok cool I just wanted to make sure I understood your post and didnt want to assume I did. So in the case of MMA (And I know you dont consider it a style yet.) would you see certain styles developing under that umbrella? i.e the afformentioned boxer/wrestler type of fighter as an example? or the bjj/ Muay Thai or the ....Chineseboxing/Sambo...:)

    My sentiments is that you need striking/throwing/ground work.

    The thing is that there are specialized styles of martial arts that tend to cover those so they are more prominent. If we break it dow more specifically then we've got
    Striking:
    Muay Thai
    Boxing
    Dutch Kickboxing

    Throwing
    Greco Roman Wrestling
    Freestyle Wrestling
    Judo

    Groundwork
    Pro Wrestling (Catch)
    BJJ

    Now we're seeing the beginnings of people from other systems realizing they have to gear their training to be successful in the "cage".

    Has anybody noticed the trend toward sport style kicks in MMA, especially with the rise of the lower weight classes?

    My style in the cage was my style. I had a Judo/SAMBO/Catch grappling style with Muay Thai/Chinese Boxing as my striking base. My style worked fine for me but I was a neophyte back then. Knowing what I know now I would change a thing and I have since ranked in Jiu Jitsu and have become a boxing coach.
