    Can a Mod or Staff please clean this thread up, it's becoming schizofrenic:
    - Kickboxing bag work Vs Xingyi forms --> (YMAS or CMA)
    - All TMA that train kata are cults --> (YMAS or Trollshido)

    Thank you in advance,
    Zendo

    Yeah, I put this here in stead of CMA because I didn't feel like I was experienced enough in Xingyi to put it in the CMA forum. And because I'm kind of scared of the CMA forum!!! I've only been doing Tai Chi for 3 years which is the majority of my CMA and therefore, not even a pimple on CMAs ass.

    And I figured this thread would start out with me getting my question answered and then end up with pics of lolcats and gay soft porn...

    As to the wrestling = TMA...can't get much older then pancration. But it depends on the definition of TMA.

    The glorification of kata is the heart of Bullshido; i.e. they take something crude and primitive, that was simply used as the cheapest method by which a third-world military dictatorship taught H2H combat to legions of illiterate superstitious soldiers, hundreds or thousands of years ago-- and so it became essentially caveman "warrior-rituals--" and these TMA cultists think they've freaking discovered The Ark of the Covenant, i.e. some type of magical Indiana-Jones "lost magical religious-secret'" that exceeds all modern weapons including the H-bomb, just like in the movies.

    Hell, you should see the crap that these clueless internet Seagal-fanwankers spew about aikido, because they say "it was designed for war" Yeah, so were the lance, pike and plate armor, but gimme a little bitty .22 pistol anyday against that.

    But still, the anti-scientific TMA-cultists go on swilling the kool-aid and chanting the mantra's about how TMA is better than all modern MMA because it's based on "ancient Chinese secret!" but that these Calgon-techniques are "too dangerous to test" (again like the Ark of the Covenant in Indiana Jones is too dangerous to open--when in REALITY, it was just a sort of portable Vatican-in-a-box used by Jews who were lost in the desert for 40 years because Moses wouldn't ask for directions).

    In short, TMA's like any cult: i.e. it's a conceit by losers in denial-- including pretend-guru "masters" who pretend to have some great secret, and peer-approval by fellow losers and cultists... both of which are more addictive to losers than crack-cocaine.

    And so they sail off into cult fantasy-land, where a "chi-strike" can destroy an M-1 tank.

    (CLOSE YOUR EYES! DON'T LOOK, IT'LL DESTROY YOU! :-D

    Whatever you think about Penn & Teller, you have to admit they nailed it with regard to TMA-losers, except for expressly naming it as a cult.

    Yes, it is on youtube somewhere! He posted it on here about maybe 6 months ago. He has a lot of posts to go through to find it!! I'll see if I can find it, because I wanted to see it again too!
