    Yes in India. I mentioned that before. It was during that trip I started collecting KATARs.

    Ah the martial art that nobody can spell... without alltogether too much time. The martial art that encourages their swordsmen to aim for the sheild of their opponent.

    :hitit:

    And a bunch of stupid pressure point attacks that don't work on anyone except their own worshippers.

    Asia how about Gumdo?

    Only through limited Systema contact and from the Russian immigrants that lived by me in Germany. Only about 2 of them knew anything about it.

    Asia how about Gumdo?
    Yes while still in Korea.

    Kas-pin (sure winner, hah).
    You got a winner there. :occasion1

    Did you play kabadi in India, Asia?
    No but I know about the sport.

    To answer your question...

    It's riggs, so my first guess is he doesn't know what he's talking about. Like he meant TCMA or TJMA.

    If it was anyone else, I'd say they don't consider them 'traditional' because they evolve and adapt but that's not 100% right either. I've heard they still practice old-school put-up-your-dukes fisticuffs in europe and not the more modern american boxing style.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    I'll go first and say "European Fencing" allthough I don't know if this would be considered a martial art.
    YES IT IS

    Anthropologically something gets classified as "traditional" if it manages to survive about two generations from its founding. Before that it ranks as a "Neo-tradition" though the desire to "neo-" everything was a 90s social science disease that Anthropology unfortunately caught. At this point BJJ is just about on the cusp and is closer then Aikido is towards being a traditional martial art by a few years.

    I've bet you've never played Hurling Asia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurling

    And don't anyone even try to say it's not a martial art, my jaw didn't break itself when I was 13. Besides it was how rival villages settled disputes back in the day, literally hundreds would take to the field in a non-lethal battle.
