I got a question (Yes yet another one) MMA do you feel it will kill the traditional arts like TKD or Karate. I am sure those that run clubs if you look at your enrolments of late you would agree it is harder now to attract members willing to commit to one art only.
Personally I am not a lover of MMA, mainly because I feel that it is modern day gladiators and at some point I believe it will change and to win you will have to render the opponent unconcious or dead. However the guys who do it I have big respect as I personally wont do it as I like my good looks
Seriously though do you feel TKD will waver the storm or will it become a victim of the new culture of learn a bit of this and that, get good and test how hard you are and who you can beat up. We oftern get post on youtube saying how c**p TKD is but this is from people who have had no real teaching in TKD perhaps a bad situation so they bag it all the time.
Traditional arts teach everything and they tend to be for the white collar generation and are universal but the MMA it poses a threat as many watch it and question exactly the strength of TKD, If they bothered to see TKD is a life art they would see it has much to offer.
What do you all think.... Yes I ask as I have students who cross train and this is a question I am frequently asked.
Your opinion counts, what do you think?
