    I choose 'yes' because i am a jealous striking-oriented fighter.
    Okay,i am just kidding,my point is quite similar to Asia,though i think many novelty,before being popularized,goes through a phase of "fad"~~~

    Yes thats true but if you go to some sites like Sherdog, UG, etc they don't understand that simple fact.

    That's an interesting point.

    As an example, you could say that Mas Oyama was a pioneer in MMA. He did Shotokan Karate, Goju-Ryu Karate, Korean MA (Taekkyon?), was a 4th dan in Judo and if I'm not wrong, he did some Chinese Kung Fu as well.

    He went around whooping people's asses and thus, Kyokushin Karate came about.

    Same with all the Chinese masters like Sun Lutang who did Taichi, Bagua and Hsing Yi and probably started off with a hard external fist.

    Just no BJJ for all of them then to learn. :eusa_danc

    Back in your momma's time, used to be the stand-up arts because martial arts was part of their jobs. People carried weapons, people fought wars. Bodyguards and soldiers could not afford to go to the ground.

    Now, there's none of that nonsense and martial arts is more of a one to one thing. Hence, the rise in poplarity of BJJ.
    Ok.. this is where you jump up and say you're kidding right?

    'cause.. "back in your momma's time" ... "regular" jujitsu (you know.. that thing BJJ is based on) were pretty much teaching much of the same stuff..

    No. Let's say you're right and what they were teaching then is the same as now but the focus, application of training methods and needs of the person were very different.

    So... now you do BJJ because you've got a war that's fought with spears and swords to fight, your family to protect and thugs to fend off from your village?

    Hmm.. don't really want to get into this but my take on this is that MMA came about because strikers were getting their asses handed to them by grapplers so now, you need to know how to grapple or deal with grapplers or you're fucked. So you learn striking, takedowns and groundwork - all-round fighting.

    Back then, they didn't do grappling much. Stand-up was the name of the game. So you do Karate and you get your ass kicked by Judo. So you learn Judo or learn how to deal with Judo. Or... some old scrawny chinaman whoops your ass with Tai Chi. So you go learn Tai Chi or learn how to deal with it. All-round fighting pre-Gracies.

    Sounds the same to me but what do I know.
