    Aren't you the same one who brought up the Fryklund fight before and then never explained why you thought it was a work?

    I think the question I asked was "at what point in that fight did Fryklund have an opportunity to take Cung down that he didn't capitalize on?"

    And as far as I can tell Le fans are all "nutriders".
    Well, I'm a Cung Le fan, as far as I can tell I'm no nutrider since I had Shamrock as the favorite to win.

    isn't "san da" the chinese term for "crossing hands" or something? translated to part of the training that cma schools should be doing, the part that in english we equate to "sparring"?


    I read somewhere that this was not described as a seperate form or art, but as a necessary component to the training in every art?

    San Da is a ruleset that's also trained as a style. Think kickboxing.
    Anyone can enter, but kickboxing also has gyms where it's trained.

    Yep it is getting harder and harder to separate the two.

    Hopefully that will continue to be a good thing.

    The problem I have encountered is schools hire a coach to do the sanda.
    They then teach Wushu or a CMA and claim that their Sanda is the Wushu style.

    In other words you go to a Mantis school that does Sanda. The coach has no background in Mantis but you are wearing the Mantis logo and your team is Mantis.

    Most get weeded out with beatdowns at tourneys but, you see the problem.

    Styles

    Very interesting contrast in styles! Next time look for Shamrock to fight a little smarter- with perhaps a different outcome.

    It was kind of silly to think that the official live-trained combat sport of a billion and a half people wouldn't come up with something that worked in MMA. I hope examples like Cung Le produce a few new ideas that liven up the sport. He's exciting to watch, especially with his feet. Right now I get the feeling that kicking in MMA is just starting to evolve into its own thing. Sanda works kicks in a "takedown-rich" environment. I thought it was a cool fight, but I'm really looking forward to a time where *every* fighter has those tools combined with the current standard. I want a spectacle. I want spinning hook hicks to flying armbars with a side order of over-the-shoulder throws from a leg grab.

    Isn't it funny how you have turned into an arrogant striker since taking up Krav.
