1. Yes I have actually, its rediculous. 2. And no thats not what Im saying. Im saying as far as martial arts go, a lot of people go the mixed martial arts route and less of the traditional practice route. Im not disparaging MMA fighting at all; as I said, I love MMA. And your claim about an MMA fighting go against a blackbelt means nothing, because belts mean nothing. Anyone idiot can get a belt in a classroom dojo. Take someone thats practiced (real) Taijutsu or Kempo or actual Jujutsu (not Brazilian) for years against an MMA fighter. The MMA fighter is going to get his ass kicked because his style is a derivative of theirs. A lot of styles have been around for hundreds of years and have stayed relatively the same for a reason. I enjoy MMA a lot but it's not the end all, be all of fighting.
