    See I don't call that a new style just a new way of teaching (if even that). A new style would incoporate training that would almost be exclusively yours. Forms, if you will, would belong to that system/style. If you do Muay thai training and say taught escrima too and called it Thai escrima. It's not a new style (unless of course you forgo any hand protection and did all the muay thai stuff while holding the sticks.) *ouch.

    What if I got a blackbelt in BJJ and started calling it Omega-fu, just because I changed a few things here and there? Creating a new system is harder than most people think, you can change an approach but to actually say it's a new system or style extremely complex.

    He calls it a new style.

    That is why he made up and gave it a new name.

    What or who gave him the right to teach?

    It doesn't appear that he has enough experience.

    Style or system, why give it a new name if it isn't for identitifcation or glorification?

    Why or for what reason can't he teach the style or system that he trained in with their name?

    You see, that is the biggest problem with MA and McDojos.

    Everyone wants their own id, style, or, name.

    For whatever reasons:

    Politics
    Ego
    Money

    Why create a new name. ID, style or system in the first place?

    That's actually my point, if you're going to stick with the style you trained in just call it that instead of thinking you're coming up with something different and new.

    On the other hand I wouldn't say that people create stystems or styles because of Politics, Ego, or Money, sometimes it is simply neccessity. Some people actually do find a completely different approach or need a different approach and a new system arises from it. Modern MMA has dictated this and some systems are straying away from the traditional closed mindset. They are either adding what is neccessary to their current system or they outright throw out the old system and start from scratch. Where would we put people like Bruce Lee for example. Another example would be Gene Lebell; Judo? Hardly considering how much more he does. :profe:
