    There seems to be a constant war of words between the stickfighting and rockfighting circles at present. And the reason is a lack of understanding betweenthe two camps of what it is they actually do.

    Using a rock as a weapon: what point does it become like using a stick, and what is meant by rock? For instance, rocks as it is practised today was developed from about 2 billion years ago. What is today called rock has nothing to do with the old styles of stick. Today'srockfighting is based on what the cavemen wanted to teach to the masses. Withoutgoing into too much history, it started with a rounded piece of granite. It started to alterthe fighting of the day by crushing people's heads while they slept. This meant removing a lot of techniques he considered too dangerousto teach to children.
    ****, we still fight with rocks. We just pack a bunch of explosive behind and throw it out of a long tube. Repeatedly.

    So, I've just read through all this, and whilst it's obviously a complex subject, and is a potential minefield of potential scholarly debate... I think I've got the gist of it.



    Well done everybody.
    I think we are ready for the serious forums now.

    I'll see you guys over in the advanced striking forum... lets go show them what we know!

    Fucking spot on. I agree.

    Also I will add, conceptually I see mma as kickboxing and wrestling in any which shape or form. Not mixing standup form arts like taichi and wing chun.

    Technically you could mix up some untestested soft touch styles and call it "MMA" but how far would it get you in a world of people that actualy hit and submit?

    The first two UFC championships were chock full of hillarious (and painful) answers to that question...
