    I voted 5. I trained in karate for several years before I got into MMA and I would say I'm a little ahead of the curve when compared to students who have a similiar amount of MMA training. I did a lot of sparring in karate so I've already learned some of the basics like timing and distance. Plus I've got some techniques that MMA doesn't use: ridge hand, palm heel, groin attacks, stuff like that. Karate, or any TMA in my opinion, isn't sufficient to stand alone as a self defense system or fighting system, but a good TMA can supplement what you learn in MMA.

    I don't get the one to ten scale as the descriptions seem to be more qualitative than quantitative. I voted 8 primarily because of this statement in its description "You should study alive-based combat sports" which I believe is the most important statement in any discussion on so called "TMA"s.

    I guess you could say that I started in "TMA"s and slowly began to move away from them as I began to think critically about what I was learning. The time spent in TMA was maybe not completely useless since by the time I moved to "alive-based combat sports" I wasn't cookie dough for the white belts; however, that time would have been spent better if I had started in "alive-based combat sports".

    I dont completely get the scale, should have put the worst options at number 1 and scaled it to 10.

    I am just remembering when people thought a spinning kick wouldnt work in MMA and now we see it in every UFC match.
