    Not even Omega can defat the entire interwebz

    ...or can he?
    Considered in the abstract the boxing ring is an altar of sorts, one of those legendary spaces where the laws of a nation are suspended: inside the ropes, during an officially regulated three-minute round, a man may be killed by his opponent's hands but he cannot be legally murdered. Boxing inhabits a sacred space predating civilization; or, to use D.H. Lawrence's phrase, before God was love. If it suggests a savage ceremony or a rite of atonement it also suggests the futility of such gestures. For what possible atonement is the fight waged if it must shortly be waged again... and again? The boxing match is the very image, the more terrifying for being so stylized, of mankind's collective aggression; its ongoing historical madness.

    I don't really see what will be gained by switching from "traditional" to "classical".

    What about:

    Old Martial Arts
    Ancient Martial Arts
    Dated Martial Arts
    Dead Martial Arts
    Historical Martial Arts

    Classical sounds too much like a good thing.

    I have two other options to propose to make the differences more clear:

    Option 1: Traditional Martial Arts VS Combat Sports

    Option 2: Martial Arts VS Fighting Arts

    In both options, the former represents styles like JJJ and Kung-Fu whereas the latter represents styles like Judo or BJJ and Sanshou.
