I can't get out of my head that time when I told my friends that I started learning MA, the first thing they asked me was: is it an old art, or is it ancient?
And each time I answered : no it's a modern style, made to work in the street only, they looked at me saying : oh that sux...
I remember that time I was talking with a friend of mine who was telling me that if he had to learn martial arts it would have to be an ancien still, something millenar...
Here is my question why do ppl

(especialy asians ( I am not being racist here, all of my friend are only azns)

like I said why do they think old or traditional = cool?

Cause a fighting system that has survived for thousands of years must be good. Or so the thinking goes.

I don't see the point, a system can survive only because a lot of ppl studied it...

The majority of the people are ignorant to the different martial arts available. Most of their exposures are through movies. So you just have to deal with it. I don't know what "Asians" you would be referring to as most of the Asians I know like more modern combative techniques. The others like the traditional styles simply for the art of it.

What the hell is FSD?

Exactly, if alot of people study it, it must be good. After all, lots of people wouldn't be pulled in by the same scam, would they?

Please stop saying Common when you mean "come on" you sound like an idiot. Perhaps english is not your native language, whatever.

But I will continue to mock Fang Shen Do for it's stupid name that shares the same problem as Shaolin-do.

Heh, Chinese-Japanese? or something like it?

Ashida Kim's got the whole Japanese-Korean thing happening, so I guess you have something in common.
