I don't believe that all publicity is good publicity, and I'd rank this article and video as middling quality. That said, it's a positive mainstream look at some of the WMA activities being offered at the Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts facility in Chicago.

It would be better if the article didn't have so many errors about other forms of fitness training. Apparently, power lifting only builds the arms - who knew?

Yep - it's riddled with misquotations and statements taken just slightly out of context. I'm 99% sure that Devon Boorman, to whom that quote is attributed, didn't actually say that power-lifting only develops the arms. It's the snakes-and-ladders of mainstream media exposure, though; you're entirely at the mercy of what a reporter thinks you meant.
