    Why do that, when I can choose to remain all holier-than-thou as well as above-it-all? Go ahead, tell me why.

    Conservative sounds like a politically-charged term.

    It also sounds like it's the opposite of "progressive" and that would make for a highly controversial dichotomy.

    I propose dropping the term martial arts altogether and using fighting systems, fighting techniques or fighting classes depending on the context. Let the dogmatics keep the old terms to themselves. The words are abused enough.

    Any new terminology should be a pnumonic with humourous/sexual overtones
    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.

    Adjective: Holding to traditional attitudes and values and cautious about change or innovation, typically in politics or religion.

    It may have political connotation, but i still think it quite fits...

    Train Ninjitsu, a conservative martial art. I like the sound of it. Sounds like something Bill O'Reilly would train.
