Over the past several decades (in the US) there have been several trends in martial arts including the explosion of karate, limited popularity of american kickboxing, mainstreaming of groundfighting, mixed martial arts/ cross training, "NHB" competitions, "reality" systems, etc.

What do you think the next trend will be? Why?

I'd wager there'll be a bunch of crappy martial arts coming together and calling themselves "MMA" to capitalize on the trend.

Oh wait, that's another thread.

I certainly think that counts as a "big thing".

In fact, I'll be going to my YMCA tomorrow to see if the "Extreme Martial Arts" is all it's cracked up to be. 11 different styles are touched upon if memory serves me. We'll just see what my 22 hours of teh grapple can do against 'em.

I thought Ninjas were incapable of procreating...

I mean, do you honestly think Ashida Kim actually knows which hole to stick it in?

No apology necessary. Ninjas are fags.

I'm dead serious about what I am going to say. With UFC, Pride, and other events putting in more rules and leaning towards a status of commercialism. I would really like to see and hope that the new trend would be a change in the UFC, Pride, NHB, etc world. I would also liek to see this same change in TMA point sparring/full contact events.

THe change I would like is simply furniture. I would really have liked to see a Gracie take down a fighter but then get back up to pick up the nearest chair/night table to smash over his opponent's head. Now I'm not talking about WWE wrestling ****. No way. Full contact furniture fighting.

I would also like to see more tag team stuff. Let's say ur down in points in ur local TMA tournament. Just tap in one of ur buds to take over for you. How about some 2 on 1? Tournaments have been doin 1v1 since the dawn of time. Let's see some mixed odds!!

Also I would like more weaponry involved. Stun guns. Crossbows. etc.
