    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The new DTMA scale. Where do you stand?

    Where do you stand on my new 10-point DTMA (Dissolusionment with Traditional Martial Arts) scale? Select the one that most accuratly describes your view of tradtional martial arts.

    1. TMA are teh bombz0r!1!11 They would pwn anything else in d4 r1ng or t3h r34l f1t3.

    2. They won't work in a sportive situation due to rules constraints, but they are the ideal best for self defence.

    3. They are an undiscovered goldmine of awseome techniques. They could become a real force in the MMA, contact striking and submission events. Someone just needs to develop them with alive training and pressure testing.

    4. They have thier strong and weak points, just like all other styles.

    5. They have some good techniques which can suppliment sport style training well.

    6. They have useful drills and execises (kata) for developing fighting attributes (balance, speed, strength, core stability) which could be used to suppliment sporting styles.

    7. They can give you some ideas and concepts which can be used by people who already train in sporting combative arts.

    8. You should study alive-based combat sports, but TMAs can give you a trick or two up your sleeve.

    9. They're ****.

    10. They're irredeemable ****.

    BJJ and Judo are both older than many martial arts that people consider traditional.

    I thought this poll might be a good idea becuase people on other forums say things like"bullshido guys all think TMA is ____" so this is an attempt to get a more accurate picture of the opinion breakdown of our resident bullies.

    for this to be even halfway relevant you would have to define TMAs. which you haven't.

    Meh, I voted 5. This poll needs a defintion for TMA (which will certainly be the starting point for a shitslinging party as usual).

    What the **** is a TMA anyways? Transexual Masochistic Australopithecus?
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
