What are you talking about Mayhem, I see no evidence of anger or immaturity here :icon_roll I'm sure tkdan is just trying to be funny, at least I hope he is...if not, well, point proven.
Interesting question though, if not just a little pointless. If I were to wager a guess, I've noticed through the years that most of the practioners tend to be between 18-25. An interesting exception tends to be traditional karate. In my dojo, I would put the average age to be 45, with many of the practioners either closing in on or have over 30 years of training. So, you would likely find a younger crowd in the MMA or CMA and an older crowd in the TMA. I think household income or race is totally irrelivant. Once we put on the gi or training cloths, there is no seperation of race, gender or status....at least there shouldn't be.

The above 2 posters appear rather dense, humourwise.
Actually, this post is just an excuse to ask tkdan who the hottie in his avatar is. :love3:

This year I was put in charge of trying to find sponsors for our Grand Nationals. The biggest obstacle I came across was the question of demographics. A lot of them wanted to know the age group of the consumers, the average income and other items such as that. So I am trying to be proactive for next year and try to have these answers for them when I approach them again.
