    This place will probably go through a slow, downward spiral until they switch back to the way they were (before it's too late) or they'll go out of business. I would find a new place to train and mention your concerns on the way out.

    ian. my shihan was very traditional and studied many martial arts eventually reaching either 7th or 8th dan and there was no higher to go. but it was Bushido Based but he felt it was too focused on straight forward combat and changed it to include angles and mixed it with judo, jujitsu, akido, with the traditional bushido values.

    It was "too focused on straight forward combat"? You'll probably catch some **** for that.

    You know those Bushido values are most likely tagged on sometime in the early 20th century?

    Anyways the anthem here is: "as long as they do training with aliveness and compete, they'll be ok"

    Philosophical, spiritual etc.- afterthoughts are a non-issue.

    Oh and welcome to Bullshido, this place is going to crush your soul now (no, I'm not really kidding)

    So what kinds of specific changes are being made that you don't like?

    I'd rather see a dojo shift toward MMA than starting a "little dragons club" and having long-term contracts. The biggest problem that I can see is that your instructor has no MMA/combat sport background (or does he?). If that's the case and he's teaching MMA without knowing anything about it, he's going to be exposed as a fraud sooner or later.

    If you want to keep your TMA pure, then start a new dojo somewhere with the other TMA purists from your school. Nothing wrong with doing that.

    Also what do people mean when they say "Bushido based?" It just sounds like a marketing term for used by TMA samurai-want-to-be's. Please drop the Oriental mysticism – it's not helping any of us in the MA's. There are no more Samurai, just hobby-preservationists.

    Sorry if that came off as Trolling.

    The TMA schools I see that switch to MMA have an instructor that trains in MMA but is not very expirenced. It's a kind of "I just have to stay one lesson head of the student" attitude rather than outright fraud.

    The instructor is expereince in mixed martial arts i want to move away from credibility cause if it was a credibility issue i would have posted there. but i want to know from you guys if u have seen this trend recently with UFC gaining more ground. im new so ill assume that TMA is reg martial artists and that we are a dieing breed.
