We heard it time and time again. The endless threads for 'TMA vs MMA'. But has anyone really stopped to think WHY such a rivalry exists? Some say it because of the BS claims of TMAers or the UnBUDO like actions of MMA. Others feel its because of TMA don't train effectivly and kata is crap. In opposition the TMA guys think MMA are a bunch of dopes and now no clue of surviving in the dreaded "STREET." Well I am here to tell you that it has NOTHING to due with anything metnioned. The REAL reason for the rivalry is simply..............FASHION!!!!!! Yep you read right. It boils down to the MMA crowd being JEALOUS of TMA fashion and vice versa. Let examine this:

The first clearly states, "I am a cool MArtist." While the second SCREAMS, "I ready for the next Gay pride parade!" (see previous article on Gayness and Grappling)

Will this rivalry ever end? Who knows. But with all the bickering going on we should all take a lesson from SAMBO and CROSSDRESS!!!

and where does the hakama sit amongst all of this o.0 ?

The hakama, worn by men, means, "I am enough of a badass to wear a dress and no one will **** with me."

At any rate, would it kill MMA fighters to at least wear friggin' Thai shorts? What's next after spandex boxers, buttless chaps? It's not like wearing shorts gives your opponent any advantage in grappling, there's no 'short choke' or 'wedgie-gatame' that you can do with shorts that you can't do with rash guards.

Manchuria,

Notice Toshiro Mifune and his peeps are all wearing hakama (the BADASS FUENAL WARRIOR pic) Do you think the Gracies could handle them? Nope!!!

But it actually makes sense...

to the MMA its all about utility...you don't need all that fancy dressy crap on to kick ass!!

Soon, all the MMAers will be wearing is jock straps and cups.

"buttless chaps" LOL

Asia is correct.

My friend has this movie on his comp.
We will be watching the second half of it soon (post intermission.)
It is very good so far imo.

Pizdoff,

That movie is a classic. You CAN'T call yourself a MArtist or a film buff without seeing it.

It just absolutely ROCKS!

Awsome, well done !!!!!
We bow to the almighty ASIA !!!!!!!!
As for the buttless chaps commentary...
I will hang up my cup, when I see a buttless chap wearing dude groundfighting !!!!!!
The look on my face would rival Toshiro Mifune's !!!!
Still, I do agree, Asia is on to something here....

Unless your wearing silk pyjamas and a pair of slippers, your just shouldn't be considered a capable martial artist.

When you can kick peoples asses WHILE wearing slik jammies, WITHOUT getting them ripped or losing a slipper, YOU will be a true Martial artist.

What about if I get the top ripped off so you can see my Bruce Lee like rippelled chest, as well as the silk sash tied around my waist?

PizDoff

Does the sash match your eyes?
