Thread: Are TMA's Becoming Obsolete?

There are still a lot of people who practice a TMA simply to keep the historical record intact. And that is their only goal in that art. There are still tons of parents who will take their kids to Karate dojos to give them something to do, and give the parent a break. There are a lot of people who train in a TMA to get a black belt in that TMA because that is a goal of theirs. And that is the only goal. Some people want to train in a martial art without breaking a sweat. Some people want to train in a martial art because they don't feel like running or lifting weights and want to get in shape.
An none of those have anything to do with learning to fight.
So no, I don't think TMA is going away.

Calling systems invented fairly recently to be modern sporting alternatives to older related styles "Traditional" is not really helpful. This includes modern Boxing, Freestyle Wrestling, Muaythai, and Judo.Now darkness comes; you don't know if the whales are coming. - Royce Gracie

In De Janerio, in blackest night,
Luta Livre flees the fight,
Behold Maeda's sacred tights;
Beware my power... Blue Lantern's light!

How about learning about a subject he keeps spewing on about?
