    Muay Thai is traditional as they come, and I don't think there's much in the way of forms there.

    There was a brief window in which martial arts could be founded and be considered traditional.

    If it was founded in 19th/ early 20th century: Traditional
    If it was founded more recently: Non-Traditional
    If it was founded millennia ago: Non-Traditional
    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    Which are the "TMA" that don't do forms out of interest? I've had a good think and can't come up with many/any, although my CMA knowledge is limited at best so I accept there may be loads of kung fu styles that don't.
    I wonder if sumo counts as tradition. I don't think they have forms.

    Is it a martial art, though?

    yes.

    traditional is a misnomer. could use something like static i guess? muay thai over the course of its history has changed quite a bit. forms in arts dont change though do they?

    You get get more traditional than MT though right? *dons tin hat* How about Muay Boran?

    Also MT is a sport, with rules and all that ****, therefore not TMA.

    I dunno how it works in English, in German you'd say there's a difference between "traditional" and "traditionalist", with "traditionalist" meaning (and I'll simplify a lot here) that a person or a group of people have made the more or less conscious decision that there's, for a example, a certain custom that's worth the be preserved.

    It has a certain museum quality to it. Sort of like trying make a niche for something that would not have survived on its own; mainly concerned with the preservation itself, in cases without any actual connection to its original meaning or use.

    I wasn't even thinking CMA. Take your pick of "traditional" wrestling styles like Cornish or Mongolian, they have no forms. They're still around, too.

    Just take forms out of the discussion of traditional vs. modern completely, imo. Forms are something specifically found in a subset of the so-called "traditional" arts.
