    Martial Artistry Me

    Hi I am new and although this board seems incredibly crude at first glance I'm sure there are benefitz to being hear.

    I study Goju Ryu karate and soon will start JJJ and BJJ in integration.
    I don't want to train the generic martial arts (Muay Thai BJJ Boxing Wrestling, although I've done hs wrestling) as I'm tired of MMA being SMA (selective martial arts).
    I like potatoes and cell phones and I own my own motor vehicle. Once I was attacked in the hallway and accidentally forgot what happened.
    Thanks guys

    Would there be reasons MMA is only mainly a few arts?

    Do you like capoeira? The main styles I know of are Capoeira Angola and Capoeira Regional.

    if something seems more effective more people will flock to it, of course the same is true if something is easier.
    I don't know much about Capoeira it looks a little silly though

    it is, but surely it is necessary to know about it, at least to know how to defend against it.
    obviously any competition fighter needs a good mix of skills, I just don't want every single fighters skills to be the exact same styles...

    That means that in the MMA world, they are popular martial arts and probably suit the needs of mixed martial artists. IMHO, most of these so-called generic martial arts are actually quite effective, even though they may not be popular in the main-stream.
    What are selective martial arts SMA?
    I thought the terms Karate, Tae Kwon Do, and Kung Fu were generic terms for Japanese / Okinawan, Korean, and Chinese martial arts. Generic usually generalizes and then you break it down to what style or family.
    When you were attacked in the hallway, did you forget why you were attacked, who attacked, what happened during the attack, or how to defend yourself from said attack?
    During this attack, did you hit your head on anything and/or lose consciousness?
