I'll say this now for the record. Ignorant people should not make any blanket assessments on styles they no nothing about. Not techniques. If they know how a technique works then say something.
Stupid **** like:
Kung-fu guys don't spar hard .....well there are 100's of styles of kung-fu
Kung-fu guys don't grapple- ....Mongolian wrestling is sometimes classified under kung-fu.
Kung-fu guys suck at ground fighting.... well compared to styles that are ground specific that's probably true. But I'm allowed to say that I do kung-fu.
If all you've done is boxing or kickboxing, or bjj or judo you can't make these statements. Ew, you visited some Mckwoon at your local strip mall, they sucked there for all kung-fu sucks. That's like me walking into an ATA school that's teaching BJJ and finding out how sucky they are and saying all BJJ sucks.

I think it's more like going into an ATA school and concluding that TKD sucks."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

You don't have to visit an ATA school to do that.

I know what you meant, I just disagreed that your analogy is accurate. I think most people that go to see kung fu taught actually go to kung fu places."Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities." – Voltaire.

Ken, I've mentioned this before, but I think there is a distinction between places teaching 'San Shou' or 'San Da' as a style, and good CMA schools which have always sparred hard, and happen to compete in San Shou/San Da as a set of rules.
I think you're comments are based on not having come across the second type of school, which is why you suspect them of all doing Muay Thai with some throws. It's simply not the case.!!RENT SPACE HERE FOR 10 VBUCKS PER LINE PER MONTH!!
