    because it sure as **** isnt called EXTREME MARTIAL ARTS in the hopes of cornering the hippy flower and beads market.
    Valid point, maybe they should change their name from XMA to EGA: EXTREME GYMNASTIC ARTS. But then again I think a lot of styles misuse the term martial art.


    Art
    The conscious production or arrangement of sounds, colors, forms, movements, or other elements in a manner that affects the sense of beauty, specifically the production of the beautiful in a graphic or plastic medium.


    High quality of conception or execution, as found in works of beauty; aesthetic value.


    A system of principles and methods employed in the performance of a set of activities: the art of building.


    A trade or craft that applies such a system of principles and methods


    Skill that is attained by study, practice, or observation


    Martial
    Of, relating to, or suggestive of war.


    Relating to or connected with the armed forces or the profession of arms.


    Characteristic of or befitting a warrior.


    . .

    Almost anything can be labeled art but it's not so easy to get around the martial part of it.

    I'll stop ranting.

    The use of traditional fighting weapons, used to bludgeon and shred people, seems kind of odd in the practicing of a non-fighting art.

    My pet peeve is people that say "PIN Number"

    If the guy in that video isn't a "fighter" I could damn sure make him one in about three weeks. Just sayin'

    Although Johnny's 3rd Law IS in effect here (If the event is staged on a hotel ballroom floor you are not going to see a knock-out)

    What about that "Final Fu" abortion of a show with Ernie Reyes, Jr. I could have sworn there were a few XMA people in there that thought they could fight and talked about how badass his or her roundhouse kick was.

    That's the show I was talking about early on in the thread. That guy did XMA modern monkey style or some such ****. He thought he was a badass.

    No sparkles, unfortunately.
