    "I moved on to ask them what they thought about martial arts in general asking people questions like what martial art do you think is the strongest.

    I got a lot of Kung fu and Karate as the answer."

    strongest? who cares?
    too bad what the general public thinks, i think that working hard myself will make me better

    but not to the degree of the ufc. Also the ufc has rules, that means no weapons. If look at any recent kung fu movie, like Kiss of the dragon, Jet Li spent most of the time wishing he had a gun, remeber that Locker? Even Bruce Lee thought that guns would work better then fighting hand to hand.
    In enter the dragon they even had a reason there were no guns, the guy who owned the island didn't feel comfortable around them, thats why all the guards had sticks and why bruce lee couldn't bring a gun.

    I think shows like Sponge Bob and the Power Rangers have caused dojos to place a lot more focus on kids, which makes it tough for adults to get much out of the training. I've noticed that the adult-child ratio has changed dramatically in the last 20 years. Part of it is because a lot more kids are training, but another part is due to the adults dropping out.

    One question I'd have is how have martial arts affected movies? Up until recently, you'd see nothing but flashy strikes in martial arts movies. Now, due to the popularity of the UFC and other MMA events, you're starting to see more grappling and submissions in the martial arts flicks. Hell, I saw Jean-Claude Van Damme - Mr. Flash himself - slap an armbar on somebody in "Derailed." Terrible movie, by the way. I also remember seeing Seagal use the guard in "Under Siege 2." "Kickboxer 4," another lousy flick, actually had quite a few realistic fights - due in part to Rigan and Jean Jacques Machado's input.

    This is a lost cause judo kid. Wrestling looks gay being on the ground is gay, people don't like it. Face up MMA has a limit market value the general population arn't going to watch this reality fighting. They wany kung fu flash, and will always want it. Get over it. I think a movie would such if it was just like ufc it be boring watching Jet Li kick 50 ninja's asses is alot more entertaining.
    Also I am glad people find styles that work in real life. I just have question is every one on the street and train ufc fighter? I believe the answer is no, you averge crook fighting ablities range from simple weaponary to maybe some expertise. So ues a tkd dude might be able to beat up the crack who's trying to mug him. If you really want to be the best fighter in the world get a fucken gun or pocket knife. Because you most likly get stab if you tryed your bjj on the average thug.

    1 being that people today have trouble because of the fact that they believe that if they see it on TV it must be true.(Their general thinking being, No one would risk lying to the public so it must be real.)
    You did see MMA triumph over TMA on television didn't you? Ok, just checking...

    The public just want a show, they don't want reality, and they moan if they get it.

    I think showing Jet Li beating Pro MMA fighters is pretty stupid, but people need to think for themselves.

    "Ring fighters train full contact all the time"

    yeah, but ninjas fight all the time and flip out and kill people!!! SWEEEET!!

    anyway, stop whining. your reality is as distorted and one-sided as is the one of the people you're complaining about.

    Movies are just that MOVIES - make believe. Your always going to get people that mix fiction with reality, until a real dose of reality comes and hits them right on the nose ( or takes them to the ground and ties them up, you choose ;) ).

    Anyway I love movies, I want to be entertained, I watch a jet li movie I dont come out thinking thats the shit I'll be training in my next session.

    The reality is non-MA's dont want to see *real* fighting in a movie, it would be far too boring, they wanna see all the fancy stuff, its exciting, its entertaining.

    Wanna watch something a little more real we've got all the NHB stuff.

    Anyway thats my newbie 2-cents - wtf do I know anyhoo I'm just a TMA of sorts ;p

    Hollywood don't give a damn about person's self defense or ground fighting. All they want is moneys. So they aren't gonna to spend a millions of dollars on some movie that will attract bunches of homo men to watch bunches of fighter hugging eachother on ground to death and end up making only few thousand dollars. So the movies probably will still be all about TMA for very long time after all of us are dead (if not forever). Because the public want to see all cool flashy moves and fights, not some ground fighter who roll around on ground. So you either have to live with it or you can try to change it (I doubt anyone can change this, it is extremely difficult unless all students are require to take UFC style classes in school).
