    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The "Too D34dly" Scavenger Hunt.

    This is how you play;

    a) Pick a martial art that didn't make the cut when it came to MMA.
    b) Find a quote of disaster from a practitioner explaining why it's too deadly.
    c) post, with link to original quote:

    I'll start:

    Systema

    "But if someone fought in the ring using skills learned from the systema straight out of the old country spetz siberian learn or die school, they would get disqualified in the first minute and the sport fighter will probably be incompasitated for the next few years (and might mis his ear,nose, a few fingers, etc...). It's just a different frame of mind. Instinct fighting vs. technique."

    Weirdly enough, this is true; French law during the early 1800s was very hard on anyone who punched another person, which is thought to be one reason why early Savate (then more commonly known as chausson, la jeu Marseilleise, etc.) included kicks and slaps rather than punches. By the lmid-1800s>early 1900s the law had changed and savate (both sport and self-defense versions) started to incorporate punches based on English and then American boxing.

    I seem to remember from my aikido days that Seagal isn't particularly well-respected within the aikido community. He's considered by many to be a disgrace to the art.

    Which, really, makes Seagal nutriders even more pathetic.
