      Whenever someone starts talking about a style that isn't muaythai or BJJ just say "hey dumb ass, change schools". Then when everyone is doing the two best styles in the whole world, we'll never have to have these pesky style issues again :)

          War Wheel to me this is a like a crusade against "ain't" except instead of saying: "People need to start saying 'is not' or 'isn't'." you've decided that people should agree upon some other substitute word.

          Why give up on people? Them bastards jus' gotta learn ta talk right!

            Nothing like no parking places, too full gyms, too full classes, to add to the essence of your training.

              Actually this has been a great exercise (at least for me). I am now deftly avoiding the misunderstanding by never refering to a CS as a style. I just caught myself asking Coach Josh if his gym "trains Judo with strikes in play" and caught myself. I ended up asking if they mix Judo Tachi Waza and striking, thus avoiding the predictable nonsense about Judo, rule sets, etc. That sort of derail serves only to annoy the shit out of me and get me into agruments, because from where I sit I figure it was absolutely clear the kind of sparring I was asking about, and people are just being dicks when they don't answer such questions.

              Disclaimer: No-one actually did that this time. :D

                  This is the truth. 99.99% of the time people know exactly what you meant, but are being pedantic shits.
                  Even when they are confused it shoul only take a post or two tp clarify, not a giant derail.

                    Thanks! I'm glad its not just me that sees it that way.

                    To me its just a way of avoiding the question. With G-d as my witness, I'll never call a CS a "style" again!

                    Just so's they can't do dat to me.

                      I missed where you decided what "CS" meant.

                        "Combat Sport(s)". Isn't that standard here? That's where I picked it up.
