    Seemed like Bodhi didn't understand my previous post. maybe I misunderstood his.

    And, yeah.

    Words mean what consensus decides they mean.

    You can call your martial art "Millinery" if you want, but people will be within their rights to expect to be able to make a hat.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!

    You threw out the baby with the bath water. Granted, the bath water was wrong.

    I will just comment on the BJJ, My name is Shane Poppleton, I am a Brown belt under Daniel Lima, my lineage is as follows:
    Mitsuyo Maeda -> Carlos Gracie -> Reylson Gracie -> Paulo Mauricio Strauch -> Flavio Nobre -> Daniel Lima -> Shane Poppleton (Me)

    My competition record can be found here:

    So I may see the issue here. I wonder if you equate "MMA" to the mixture of martial arts you chose to create a curriculum?

    For me, if someone says they teach MMA/Boxing/Kickboxing, I equate that to preparing someone to compete under that rule set.

    Questions I would ask you, if I was considering your gym to train me for a fight:
    (1) "What was your fight record like?"
    (2) "How many fights have you been a cornerman for?"
    (3) "How many fighters have you trained that have competed in MMA/Boxing/Kickboxing, and how have they done?" (Given how new your school is, I would place a higher precedence on the two prior questions)

    If I was looking at your BJJ program I would ask the same questions, more or less:
    (1) "What's your instructor's lineage?"
    (2) "Can you give me some competition highlights?" (I don't need to know every tournament they've one, but some of the big ones are nice)
    (3) "How many students compete, and how have they done?" (Given how new your school is, I would place a higher precedence on the two prior questions)

    I hope this sheds some light on why people are employing the Socratic method with you right now.


    Hopefully, based on the above questions, you might see why we wouldn't question Mike Tyson, boxing trainer.

    Although, Mike Tyson, MMA trainer would still get some raised eyebrows.
