    Just to clarify what's going on in this thread:

    - 16 y/o somehow acquires attention of 'Master' elderly.
    - 16 y/o irritates 'Master' elderly in some fashion.
    - 'Master' elderly challenges 16 y/o to no hold bars combat.
    - Practitioner notices challenge and feels a challenge directed at a 16 y/o is unprecedented and offers to accept challenge on 16 y/o behalf.

    - Forum breaks down into moral debate as to weather or not challenge was immoral as practitioner who offered to replace 16 y/o was closer to prime age of fighting and 'Master' elderly who initiated first challenge is 'too old'.


    Perhaps I'm missing the link here. If a challenge is placed it should be accepted or declined with reasonable grace. I'm not sure what the argument is about - if the 'Master' feels that the fight is unfair I'm sure he can respectfully decline without loosing much. Unless there is a rule book somewhere that states who can challenge who? Perhaps a paragraph that says 'You may challenge a minor as an elderly but anyone challenging you in mid life is highly offensive.'

    Let's just say a fighter, someone who fights.

    A TRUE martial artist implies that something separates said martial artist from the rest of the regular martial artists shifting about with their ordinary martial arts and lives.

    How does a TRUE martial artist behave? Aside from the fact that he isn't bound by anything when it comes to fighting/self defense.

    Is someone who doesn't want to maim their assailant forever or exercises a little self restraint while defending themselves not THE TRUE?

    Come on, man.

    This kind of Japanese cartoons drama...

    Not a fan of it.

    You misunderstand my meaning. IMHO a true martial artist is not bound by a style. The fighter uses what works best for the individual. I have found that MMA has worked best for me.

    Dude, that's got nothing to do with why I don't like the phrase true martial artist.

    Best of luck.

    I warned you.
    No doubt warnings, coming from such as you, get all the attention that they deserve.

    This whole thread is like a train wreck waiting to happen.

    atheistmantis - offering an opinion on what separates a martial artists following a traditional art form without expanding knowledge into adapting for varying styles of art. I think the term 'Varied' martial artist as opposed to 'Traditionalist' perhaps? Do these even have coin terms?

    Mister - dislikes the coin term 'true' martial artist due to the fact it infers some sort of 'superiority' amongst martial artists that is somehow attained through unrealistic factors or terms. ( I agree - the concept of 'true' martial arts infers some sort of super fighter )

    As much as I'd like to see this argument pan out into hilarity - I just think it's going to break down into another tit for tat.
