    MMA vs. Traditionalism vs. consumerism

    I have to write a paper for school and it has to revolve around consumerism. So what better topic to do than martial arts. I figure I can connect mixed martial arts and traditionalism with consumerism IE one of the reasons mma was made. If anyone can add anything to help I'd appriciate it.

    Don't. Your teacher will in the best case scenario not know jack **** about MA and will then be unable to grade you or he will think that Bruce Lee movies and Karate Kid are good sources on MA. In either case, your grade will suck, regardless of how much the Bullshidoers will love your paper. Do it on something the teacher knows anything about.

    My reply was sarcastic but true . . . there is a wealth of info in the previous threads that no one can duplicate via a simple answer to your question.

    In all seriousness, good luck with your project - it sounds like a good idea.

    See, I thought about that but, theres really not going to be much to hold my interest while I'm writing it and ill get a shitty grade anyway. This way, I might be able to at least educate my teacher and spread a little knowlege around...
    Plus english is boring as hell, and rhetorical skills and strategies are a total waste of my time.... Anyway, Since i gotta goto class, Im just wanting to know how the shaolin temple turned into UFC through the lens of consumerism

    If your teacher is any good they will grade the quality of your writing and your comparative analysis skills. Don't worry about what interests them.

    Oh yes, yes I have. But if he doesn't care about getting **** grades, he could go ahead and write about Pokemon-porn or whatever.

    Like what Joe Karate said, I doubt she's going to care about the subject, but how good the writing is. Can anyone gimme a link to start out, because ive been searching for forums with traditionalism and consumerism, but I can't find anything that helps. thanks-
