Re: Is there a way to unite all martail arts

IMHO, there are many of us who cross-train enough to respect the value of all arts, allowing us to enter and blend with them.

But, that is a mental attitude that must come from within each of us.

IMHO, because by definition, martial arts are an adversarial competitive (win/lose) combat art, there will always be those with that same attitude. Unfortunately, it limits their growth to their own ignorance, making them easier to defeat.

Don't worry about their mental unity and work on your own.
