    'Useful' in what sense?

    That really depends on what the person is expecting to get out of the training. If the person is there for a workout, to improve discipline, focus, or spend time with their family who also trainingg, then absolutely that martial art is useful.

    If by 'every martial art is useful' you mean 'every martial art is effective in self defense situations,' then the law of averages dictates otherwise.

    I'm just saying techniques are useful depending on how they're used and who's using it.

    Half Filipino, half white. I don't really look Filipino but half of people who see me think I'm asian and the other half thinks I'm white (one girl thought I was mexican).

    So ... if we had a test tube baby, cloned it, and raised them both exactly the same, except they both took different martial arts, we had them fight, it would be a draw?
