    No, it was created when Helio witnessed a deathmatch between Zeus and Odin for the WWE Heavyweight Championship of the Universe...c'mon, didn't you read the Gracie biography?

    Seems like the back half of the ninties into the new century have been dominated by "meta."

    Uh, glad this topic stimulate some discussion.

    This was sent over to me in an email from one of my company's clients and I think it sums how some arts stay 'traditional' and static while others change and evolve.

    LORDASIA,

    You've probably been asked this before, but I'm too drunk to search at the moment, what were your favorite martial arts? Doesn't necessarily mean the most effective, but the most interesting or the best time you had training?

    "Traditional" and "static" are not mutually inclusive.
