Re: Cross-Training/Mixed-Discipline Fighting
After thinking on it more, and evolution occurs, I must remember that there are no real definitions, like human behavior. What defines a fighting style? Where did our traditional arts originate? I wince at the goriness of raw human aggression. This is my own preference, sometimes I accept only what I think is right. "There is no one right way to live"(-Daniel Quinn). Underground fighting is different in each location, and held for many different reasons. I know that people will always come together for fighting knowledge, trying out this or that and keeping what works for them and removing what doesn't. And new arts will be born as they always have, quite Uniquely.
