    Sounds very cool! So MMA is constantly changing and adapting to the times I take it…is that just in terms of what’s popular at the moment amongst fighters, or does it also include a continual refreshment of “bigger” and “better” methods?

    I must say that my preference or comfort level is karate but from what I’ve seen of MMA, yes, it is evolving. When the sport became popular, jui jitsu dominated lots of the matches but nowadays one is just as apt to see wrestling, kick-boxing, karate, and judo dominating because the different stylist have cross-trained. The grapplers can kick and punch, the punchers can do submissions, the wrestlers can box and so forth.

    The only way I see MMA stagnating is if becomes stylized as many forms of karate and kung fu are, In that eventuality, MMA would not be what works the best for my great-grandchildren… maybe mind control is a real possibility or even world peace? :-)
