    MMA: a TRUE martial art?

    Forgive me if this is a stupid question. Even though MMA is considered to be a martial art, whenever I watch an MMA practitioner fight, they might really own their opponent:f-off: , but all it looks like is getting close to the opponent to knock them over and then sitting on them until the battle is over. Could you really call that martial arts? And I deeply apologize to all MMA practitioners. I know you all are a force to be reckoned with, but I need some serious clarification, and fast

    There's a good chance that since your question is so dumb on so many levels everyone will assume you're a troll.

    But in case you're not

    MMA is a sport
    MMA is a trainign mentality
    Both of which are composed of martial art techniques found in other martial arts

    Now back to your bridge!!!!

    Troll or not, I know numerous people who think this way, even if they don't voice such stupidity on a forum.

    Of course.

    What would you consider a better way to go about "owning" someone?

    Could you really call that martial arts? And I deeply apologize to all MMA practitioners. I know you all are a force to be reckoned with, but I need some serious clarification, and fast
    What is your definition of martial arts?

    As opposed to your typical "TMA" mcdojo in the US? Where they take your money and teach you archaic techniques that are useless today? Could you really call that martial arts?

    Martial arts = fighting. MMA = closest thing to fighting under the law. You do the math.

    I really have come to hate the term martial art. The "art" bit should just be renamed "method", thereby removing any hippy stuff about creativity,philosophy, ect. Then we can just it stands for "methods for damaging someone else while avoiding damage yourself", and go by results.

    MMA for the win.

    While the façade of mixed martial arts may not be what you have been taught to believe is a true "art" what with all the philosophies and ethics that traditional martial arts instructors have to include so that their particular brand of martial art seems more legitimate (for some reason unbeknownst to myself), it is definitely one of the most effective method of combat, which, if you think about it, was the original reason for the conception for any martial art. I don't know where all the ethics bullshit came from (probably the culture / religion of the place in which it originated), but one can be sure that such is superfluous and kind of dumb.

    Therefore, cut all the bullshit and you have a TRUE martial art... MMA.

    Tanhalen, sorry to burst your bubble, but MMA is a sport, and the most effective methods of combat involve technology and weopons.

    And the term 'Martialist' as opposed to 'Martial Artist', because of a disdain for the 'art' concept has already been coined by a Karateka. So, Krotty for the win.
