    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    I don't think anyone has a problem with a school offering different tracks for students based on their needs and desires. Even most BJJ and MMA schools have a competition team with plenty of students that AREN'T on it, because they aren't interested in that aspect. OTOH, they still usually do the exact same training anyway... So, it's not quite the same as what we're talking about here. But I digress.

    So would each school who honestly wanted to teach a MA have to divide their curriculum within the school or would a school have to make a commitment to either be entirely about Physical Education

    -OR-

    entirely about Contact? Thoughts?

    Best Wishes,

    using TKD as an example, I'd say they'd divide the curriculum IF they wanted to cater to both sides.

    Martial TKD and Fitness TKD with a VERY CLEAR message to the students about what each gives and the usefullness of it.

    Stop taking my ideas Wolf :tongue11:

    Seriously, the school/gym/dojang that I plan on opening in the next few years falls along the similar idea. If you want fitness sign up for those classes. If you want competative TKD do that. Once I'm a little more versed (read several years from now) in grappling I'll offer a section for that too.

    The trick is to tell them exactly what they are going to get in the class and then make sure you as a school owner/instructor stick to that. Doesn't seem so hard to me . . . I guess I'll have to wait to see the reality of it once/if it ever happens.

    yes. As is done in many full contact schools that run cardio kickboxing classes.
