    The chances are the MMA guy throws the spear, follows right behind it with a takedown and chokes the TMA guy out... kind of like what happened a few years ago at a Dog Brothers gathering.

    kungfu is a enjoyable show it may not be
    true to history or the real chinese martial arts
    but it's fun to watch

    after all it's just a tv show!

    as to the TCMA VS MMA issue..
    who cares just do the art you want to learn
    MMA's the current trend just like other arts have been
    it's no better or worse than any other style/art ...

    thay passed to so will this
    better to be good a what you want to be and not to just follow the crowd
    just because it's not the current thing dosen't mean it's no good after all

    It has helped to weed out a lot of BS and force teachers to be more honest. That's something CMA owes to MMA.

    As sad as that sounds I could actually see that happening. I don't understand why most people don't seem to catch the fact, that most TCMA schools aren't realy about fighting. This is not a cop out, it's a fact that most TCMA schools are just trying to pass on the style and culture. Many today have no clue how to use their art in actual fighting so they end up doing what comes natural flaying their arms and kick boxing.

    You guys all wish to be little Grasshoppers like young Kwai Chang admit it that is why you guys train to be One with the Universe and with all Nature admit it. Who wouldnt want to be trained by the Monks of Old in the Shaolin Temple. Seek peace and harmony KC

    Ok....you got us! And why not!

    Anyway, it's the individuals perrogative to train in whatever they like. After all, hand to hand combat is useless in today's world. I mean, how often do you get attacked on your way home from work or to the supermarket that you should spend so many hours practicing self-defense? You do it because you like it.

    here is my opinion on the subject...
    http://youtube.com/watch?v=Mz-9XQL6U...elated&search=

    MMA vrs TMA
    Kung Fu vrs BJJ

    get a life. this got old years ago. If you don't want to cross train don't. If you do then go ahead. Who really cares? go head wear the dumb looking outfits and you will match with the guys wearing the BJJ gi's

    It is a *Fighting* style, you *Can't* pass it on without fighting.

    True.

    BUT........things evolve. Fighting is not really important in today's world so if other benefits take priority for people then so be it. So an MMA guy can beat up a TCMA guy....whoop de friggin' do.

    If an art was all about fighting guess what....I wouldn't do it. I'm 36 and successfull. Fighting had nothing to do with that. Let the morons do the fighting so they can feel good about themselves.

    hasn't been good? they only put out 1 good album, and that song is the best song hands down they recorded and its a cover. Led zeppelin... wtf? its was the lyrics that made me post it, I could have put the original its much better.

    well you can go around thinking that.. doesn't really reflect on reality. but hey whatever works for you. Let me guess you walk around with a gun right?
