    Why So Many Traditional Martial Artists Suck?

    Back in the day a Martial Art survived if the teacher survived, now anyone can test to a black belt in most schools and start his own school. If competence in combat is not required anymore you are going to get allot of convoluted schools that are ineffective.

    In consumer culture we have removed martial arts from Darwinism and our only real testing field is the MMA arena, Street Fighting and Combat. However we aren't exactly lining up with swords and shields these days.

    Martial Arts are also traditionally circumstantial relating to a specific time period or circumstance. For Kung Fu frequently it is weapons. WuShu is a Chinese government bastardization of Kung-Fu. Kind of a shame Kung-Fu used to be hardcore and brutal training, now it is made fun for Women and Children.

    As well No Contact is Bullshit, another reason why allot of Traditionalists get thier asses handed to them.

    I think this point has been talked about to death. This thread is beating off a dead horse.

      Thank you for disseminating information that we all already know. Mayhaps I could direct you to the Search function and Newbietown?

        Somebody should start a website dedicated to exposing such fraud and general B.S. in the martial arts community.

            Yeah! And they should call it "Bullshit-Do" or maybe "Bushidoshit" or something clever like that. Something with "shit".

              You're an idiot.

              There's no such thing as "traditional martial arts". You are unable think logically and cannot even muster the basic ability to control your own mind.

              Shut the fuck up.

                        You know what I get a kick out of? Fucking idiots.

                        Yes, I know that was a double entendre.

                        Wakingfeart, define TMA conclusively, then prove they exist.

                          Sometimes, out of the corner of my eyes, I catch fleeting glimpses of Ninjas. I think that they are the reason I often can't find my pens. It would also explain the unflushed toilet that nobody claims knowledge of.

                            Seriously though, this is what I have seen in almost every thread. It is as insane as Ashida Kim.
