When MMA became huge suddenly, all of these TMAers decided that they coined the phrase and they could use it again. IMO, unless you are in you mid to late forties or beyond, you are FoS if you use MMA in this manner.

    Even this category is suspect in most cases IMO.
    Back in the '70s and '80s JKD-like multi-style systems were referred to as eclectic styles. Of course, back in 1899 E.W. Barton-Wright was doing the same thing with Bartitsu.

    Yeah I know. They were also advertised as Mixed or Mixing Martial Arts. I did not say all. There is a specific group I believe. Many that argue they did it too are not anywhere near my age group.

    So if I get a black belt in Judo and teach it side by side with Karate can I call it TMMA?

    More or less. Doyle wrote that Holmes defeated Professor Moriarty with "baritsu", which is generally assumed to have been a typo for Bartitsu.
