    Actually, if you read the thread in question, Rudy really has been a valuable resource and a voice of reason towards Bruce.

    Rudy and I have had our differences, but I really have taken a different look at Rudy after this.

    I voted for everyone as they stand up, make themselves known versus the unknown internet masters of crap that are most prevalent in our net culture

    Too many internet whiners out there, but thats reality.

    real people step up and the cowards mock you from a distance.

    ... we've got a fairly healthy community of sane CMA posters on this sub-forum.
    I appreciate the honorable mention Jack. But I, like NJM, do not believe I am the best representative for CMA.

    I am an advocate of CMA and greatly enjoy what it has to offer and I am thoroughly disgusted with it's current state. With the exception of a handful of practioners CMA, for the most part, is over populated by delusional instructors and hardcore larpers who would rather believe they have th3 d43dly then actually train hard to acquire even an ounce of skill.

    I have spent 5 of the last 17 years of my training focusing on Muay Thai and Baji Quan and outside of what I've learned and the enjoyment I get from the training I have little to show for it in terms of a competition record.

    So I too believe that there are better representatives here than myself but I am glad to have been mentioned and quite happy playing a supporting role.

    Aw, hell. I forgot Lee and Meex. And Tom Kagan, for that matter.

    I wasn't thinking of it as just one person, like we were sending someone to the Constitutional Congress or something. If I try to seriously answer that question, I'd say the single Bullshido user who most epitomizes what's good about CMA today is actually Domite.

    Kid's been training 1.5 years with one of the best sanshou athletes in the US (whose father is one of the most respected taiji players in the world), during which time he's gotten fit, lost 40+ pounds and learned to fight. He has his first amateur ring fight next month, plus he's cross-training BJJ — with his coach's knowledge and endorsement — at Alliance NYC because he plans to fight MMA later in his career. This is how learning martial arts is supposed to work, and I think it shows that real CMA is alive in the US after all.

    Is your system considered CMA or Kempo?
