Came across this post from a Don Roley (Bujinkan guy) apparently dissing MMA outright:
It starts there and if you follow the posts he states something to the effect that mma is useless for self-defense.
In another thread he states he's going to be training "a certain group of military folks."
He seems rather cocky and rude about all of this. I think mma just like other martial arts all have there place........but to disrespect something outright like that is a little unnerving.
Seems this guy just moved back to the states from training in Japan with Masaaki Hatsumi. I just wonder if he doesn't realize he has left the comfort zone of Japan for the US......where some people might take offense to the things he's saying and call him out on it.
Or, maybe, I'm taking this wrong?
He cites a jiujitsu website.........but he seems pretty confident mma in the ring is useless in regards to self-defense. Obviously the street is different, but mma has a lot of benefits.
Anyway, came across it and it irked me. I train in several styles.........and to outright dismiss mma seems utterly absurd.
I am a living legend!

In Soviet Russia, MMA slams you.
Actually, that happens about everywhere.

Carlos42, welcome to bullshido. One of the first things you need to learn about this community is that we never care what anyone ever has to say on martialartsplanet. EVER.
