    Sorry about the multiple posts, fellas. At the time of those postings, it didn't appear that my posts were going through. If a moderator would like to delete posts #50 and #51, that'd be great as post #49 is sufficient. Again, sorry about all that.

    ^ What he said. In my case, # 51 and #59 are basically the same post (the commonly-used technique mentioned is different, but the intended point is the same), and both are there for the same reason as has been cited by other posters.

    Mod: if you can, please delete one, the other, or both. Thanks.

    This.

    Its also a verified fact that pushups and meditation disrupt that particular gene.

    Let's say 100 years from now if Gracie Jiu-jitsu is still around (or the earth for that matter) would it then be classified as a "Traditional Martial Art?"

    It can't just be how old a martial art is that determines its label as a TMA. Muay Thai is older than TKD, but it's not really thought of as a TMA. So the question is, what exactly makes a martial art traditional.

    I have my own ideas which I'll post once I get back from teaching some 1st and 2nd graders TMA for 90 minutes. But I'm interested in hearing everyone else's thoughts.
    I don't think the stigma is about traditional rather 'dead' training with accompanying delusions of efficiency based on the 'authority' of it being traditional. 'Traditional' being synonymous with 'well it wouldn't have lasted this long if it didn't work' and 'in the old days people killed with this style' type thinking.


    This site has pretty much got it right already IMO, there is the CMA forum the JMA and KMA etc and that kinda works for me. People within their respective arts can get in each others faces about 'lineage' and all that as they wish. The important distinctions round here is how you train in your art considering the claims you make for it. Maybe the forum headings could change to something like Omega suggested with one for 'Classical Fighting Arts' or maybe 'Culturally Based Martial Arts' or something..instead of TMA?

I think this is the only way we can really go about things, and when we reach a point of contention the discussion can progress from there.

    -Traditional
    Aikido
    Ninjutsu
    Most styles of karate
    Most styles of kung-fu
    Taekwondo
    Hapkido (And related Korean styles)
    Silat
    Japanese Jiu-Jitsu

    -MMA
    Boxing
    Judo (Used to be traditional until MMA took off. Now it's been disavowed by traditionalists because it's a grappling art)
    Muay Thai
    BJJ
    Kickboxing
    Wrestling
    SAMBO
    Kyokushin and off-shoots (Except those who consider themselves traditional)
    Savate
    Sanda

    Along with TMA and MMA, the other classifications for martial arts are Str33t and Weapons. Str33t martial arts are defined by the disapproval of sport and traditional methods, although there's some crossover between traditional and Str33t mentalities (Mainly, the disapproval of sport methods).

    -Str33t
    Krav Maga
    Systema
    San Soo
    SCARS

    -Weapons
    Fencing
    Kendo
    Eskrima/Kali
    Renaissance fencing
    Explain for me how a Japanese MA which was created AFTER the end of the warring classes were outlawed by their own Government and, within a long term period of peace; can those systems be considered "traditional" when they are very much "modern" in terms of age.

    Explain how a modern martial art cannot be traditional.

    That's totally irrelevant. The "traditional" label is based solely on the misperceptions of the people who practice the art, not the reality of how young the art actually is.

    I have thought that 'traditional' martial arts are named so because they appeal to their tradition, no matter how old, in order to claim legitimacy. 'Modern' MA claims its legitimacy through competition and trial and error; RBSD, for example, claims legitimacy usually by invoking imagery from action hero's, glorified 'rogues', and other cultural icons and concepts.
