    I don't agree. I think it creates a similar stressful situation as compared to doing kata all day and "situation" drills with people you know.

    This lack of understanding is what killed TMA. In theory, any TMA should be able to go to a valid tournement and pressure test his/her skills to uphold the legitimacy of their art, just as early jujutsu during times of peace in Japan. Just as just about everyother culture with martial arts.
    Modern TMAists ruined it......

    You can get gentle when your busted up from doing it too much when you were younger.

I don't have the intensity, frequency of training or drive that the competitors do. That's my failing, I won't bitch about it and say that I know the 'deadly' and would destroy them in a "real" fight.

    You, Wagabitchy, seem to have a problem. It's like you are trying to convince yourself that you don't have to train like a fighter to be a good fighter. Grow up. Your tired excuses and arguments simply don't impress or dupe anyone here that has a clue. Do your kata all day if you feel good about it. However, I'm pretty sure that you don't, since you are here bitching.

    I dont do kata. and you did not read the whole thread. :5yeah:

    Sparring and MMA are good simulations of real fights where you think you might die, but without the thinking you might die part. That does make a real difference.

    At the same time, sparring and MMA are the best safe way to practice fighting, and it is unreasonable to expect people to practice in an unsafe manner.

    So...IMO, this thread and most of the posts on it are pointless.

    ....why do you care so much about what 18 year olds on internet forums do or say that you'd make some long stupid rant of a thread? Do you think these kids are even going to bother READING this ****?
