    I've been gone a few days, but to add my 2c:
    Actually just rewatched Shamrock vs Royce 2.

    Shamrock did fight cautiously, but that fight was his. At the start of the first overtime he landed a nasty punch that knocked Royce silly and opened up a bad cut underneath his eye.

    At the end, Royce had to be helped around, and was looking spent, while Shamrock was parading around the ring with his arms raised.

    If the fight had judges to declare a winner it would have been Ken that time. Royce never fought in UFC again, and didn't fight anywhere for over 3 years.

    i see your prime motivation as getting BAJI! into the top. :)

    totally, when losing means so much...
    still it would be a great rep to have, going like 10-0 and teaching MA, people would show up and listen to you

    As far as the Wing Tsun vs TKD for most popular art is concerned:

    While WT may be the single largest organization in the world (I'm taking your word on that, I haven't seen any numbers...), there are still many more people learning TKD. Last I checked, WT has roughly 300,000 students or so (the biggest percentage of these in Europe I believe...). TKD however, has at least a couple million. The main difference is that TKD isn't run by one big organization like WT is. There are nearly as many different TKD organizations as there are TKD students.

    What always amused me was the fact that the current NHB gloves were first introduced by none other than 'Tank' Abbott. After he started crushing people, more dudes started wearing them (Don Frye was the second big name to wear them if I remember right). People always bitch about the early UFC being 'pure' (ie no gloves, lots of knees and elbows, etc...) and being more unpredictable than recent UFCs but I've always thought the old UFC was more of a showcase for a select few. Putting Royce, Ken or Severn against some karate black belt? Yeah, that outcome was hard to predict. Until the strikers started getting smarter (enter Maurice Smith), the old UFCs were actually kind of boring. Lots of amatuers and a few good ground-fighters.

    Personally, I like watching the new Prides and UFCs, no strategy seems to really dominate, the skill level is getting way up there and even the big names get their asses kicked every now and then. How many times has the Heavyweight crown (or any other UFC title for that matter) switched hands in the last five years? Lots of talent out there, just itching for a shot.

    I'm sure TKD and Karate styles still are the top.....according to my phone book in metropolitan Toronto.


    "BJJ is the new fad..."
    meaning BJJ is the new thing to go and train in. Not that it is the biggest attended MA right now.

    It seems WT is rather popular in Europe eh?
    You guys have commercials for martial arts?
    i've never seen on TV in North America a commercial for a martial art

    brand-it's "cite" :)
    Edit: :) I am Super Canadian Dictionary Man!
    Edit2: Now your sentence doesn't make any sense! :) heheh

    And yes i would be curious about statistics......imagine that, a world demograph of MA, that would be very very interesting!

    OK Asia, I didn't know you where an AK! and BAJI! follower.

    Pizzd0rf - Wing Tsun is the most popluar MA in the world. Lots of ppl have heard of wing Tsun, it's just the "newer" MA, give it another few years and it'll be common place in the US. However, come to think of it, a lot of people would know what WIng Chun is, or would;ve heard of it already IMO....

    No, see BJJ has become an alterbative to Judo, it IS NOT the most popular, WIng Tsun is the biggest organisation in the world, i.e. they have more members than any other organisation. I don't see BJJ classes being advertised on TV anywhere, how ever Wing Tsun is. Very popular.

    FAD? Oh I knew it was bad, but does everyone in the highschools etc in American know what BJJ is? Fucking hell; it;s not like anyone/many will stay dedicated, Unlike Wingtsun where I guess, due to MUCH more people studying it, is taken more seriously. BJJ can be the type of MA that you'll just give up soon after you've started IMO. However, let me reinsatted - WT IS the most popular. It's know here, BJJ generally isn;t really. I think the same would go for the USA BUt remeber, Europe altogether resprenets a much larger demographic than just the US (eeeerrr I should most definitely think lol) and it's popular here.

    baaaah whatever, I'm just saying ATM WT is the most popular :D

    "Not really most of the world does Wing Tsun."
    maybe in your neck of the woods my English friend...
    most people still have never heard of Wing Chun, but they sure as hell know Kung Fu, karate and TAE KWON DO!!! Remember North America represents a larger demographic than little Britain.
    "That was the old most popular MA Osiris, WT is now "the most poplar MA in the world""
    jeez man? according to who? BJJ is the new fad...

    "I just wanna be loved. <tears>"
    *cries with Anthony*

    Osiris-""WHy because it 0wned in the UFC? It's nearly as old as Judo lol! It's a VERY old MA now, I mean liek 60 years or more!"

    How is it traditional if it was just one clan doing it? As far as when the art was introduced, it is fairly new."

    Who in the 1960's heard about Wing Chun? It wasn't really popularized until the 1970's.
    Who in the 1930's heard about karate? It wasn't popular world wide or in North America until WW2 vets brought it home and abroad, therefore spurring the growth of MA's in NA.

    Ok, Ninjitsu and Submission fighting have things in common (they both use striks fromt he mounts and armbars sooo), happy?

    Yes, this is why i get my "VIRTUAL SPANKINGS" lol. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

    I hope you were not serious.

    >Alot of arts have arms bars I know, but IMO these Ninjitsu guys just added them from Judo or whatever. STrikes form the mount? Well come on that's really more of a street fighting thing, not used in MA that much - it was made obvios how effect this was by the advent of these MMA compeitions.

    This is why you get your VIRTUAL SPANKINGS. You have no idea what ninjutsu really is where is I *pats enormous ego the size of AA's sumo belly* have studied trained and researched. So how can you say what they added.
