    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What if? Government intervention.

    This could be the stupidest thread I have started on any forum ever:

    Imagine for the moment that you've ben made Grand High PoohBar of Martial Arts in the United States. It is your job to ensure that only alive, effective, realistic, martial art training is provided by dojo's, schools and gyms across the country. How would you go about it? What horrible annoying loopholes would there be that bullshido schools could slip through? How much moeny would your schemes need?

    For me Martial arts would need to be roughly categorised and it's there that my scheme starts to fall apart. I can't come up with a scheme that excludes tip-tap point sparring that doesn't also exclude pretty much all submission grappling.

    Any that fails your stupid test reopens as a "Self Defense" school or a "Athletic Club" as no longer needs your license.
