    That was pretty cool. That isn't practiced a lot here in the States. One good school every once in a while but it's pretty hard to find a good one.

    That looks just like the Jeet Kune Do classes I used to take.

    I think you are mistaken, we have probably the most open minds you will find. Most people who discovered mixed martial arts come from a traditional martial arts background. There is nothing "mystical" about a fight... either you knock the guy out, slam him and knock him out, submit him, or lose via said methods. How is the "street" so much different than a ring? If you get into a fight with somebody it is the same. If you get into a fight with more than one person, then you are a fool. The video you showed doesn't demonstrate realistic (and by that I mean full resistance) training. TMA's did not evolve, get over it.

    I respect traditional martial arts for what they are, but I'm on the same boat as brolli and almost everyone else here. Sure that guy can slap people faster than most, but it wasn't all too "realistic" and most demonstrations like that are choreographed.

    If the techniques displayed on the video were to demonstrate what to do in an absolutely no rules environment, why do they have the opponents come in almost the same way every time. Why not have them properly tie up or clinch with the "wc master"? Why do they simply fall down after getting hit by anything once? Why do the execute unrealistic takedowns (grabbing over someone's head from behind?!?!)? I mean cmon, these are the questions that most people who have been exposed to TMA and MMA ask.

    It's interesting that "no rules" fighting seems to have the most rules in training or demonstrations.
