    Description of Martial Arts Mythologies (in one sentence)

    It seems to me that many cases of bullshido are a result of shysters cashing in on a martial art's mythology. So, what better use of my time then to begin a comprehensive list of mythologies -- the description contained in one sentence.

    Here's ten I can think of off the top of my head:

    Boxing
    Kid makes a wrong decision, winds up in prison where he learns to box deadly, gets released, then fights his way to the top -- ultimately becoming champion.

    Kickboxing
    Kind of like boxing, but with eastern mysticism -- and some kicking.

    Karate
    Victim of bullying pesters old man to teach him karate, where he does household chores which -- unbenownst to him -- actually trains him to fight.

    Ninjutsu
    Unconfirmed-but-legendary deadly assassins devastate medieval Japan with shuriken and the ability to disappear.

    Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
    Helio Gracie.

    Kung Fu
    Prideful master beats everyone till he kills someone, wanders the countryside where he has a spiritual epiphany, returns to kung fu where he does good and beats a white guy.

    Muay Thai
    Orphan gets dropped dropped off at a training camp, gets good awkwardly, becomes a champion, then quits to become a Buddhist monk or a ladyboy.

    CACC
    Travelling carnival strongman challenges everyone in town, beats them all, including the local tough -- who, after getting humiliated, decides to learn the secrets of shooting and hooking.

    MMA
    Pretty much the plot of Mortal Kombat.

    Bartitsu
    Evil Moriarty tries to beat Sherlock Holmes until he gets bested by the deadly art of Bartitsu

    Defendu
    Exactly like World War II, but without the guns.

    Capoeira
    Slaves get frightened that the Portuguese will discover their secret art, so they become really good dancers.

    Let me know what else should be added to this list.

    I think you are confusing ancient myths with modern martial arts movies.

    I think we've been over this.

    The only myth about martial arts is that anything other than MMA works. Gosh.

    That not a myth that's Fight Night: Champion. The myth of boxing and pretty much every major boxing movie is a poor shmuck ends up in a gym through hard times, has a coach believe in their talent, they earn the attention of the main stream sport and get a shot at the title and win it so they aren't poor anymore because being poor is bad.
