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 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 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.
