The STYLE vs. STYLE debate lost ALL steam long ago. People KNOW now, due to MMA/NHB that styles don't fight, individuals do. As a result, most individuals jumped on the cross-training wagon. Now, a new revolution tugs at the modern martial art movement, BEYOND CROSS-TRAINING. The old paradigm regarded propagating and representing STYLES. (You think Bruce would have dismantled this paradigm long ago, but it took another 25 years to become institutionally grass-roots with modern MMA/NHB.) The new revolution regards the immergence of systems that specifically provide instruction for preparing the individual. We see time and time again, though, the media attempting to force these open-ended SYSTEMS into old paradigm of closed-model STYLES. So, no longer is the question, "which STYLE is best?" The question now becomes, "what constitutes an effective and efficient system in preparing each INDIVIDUAL for fighting?" Here are some beginning criteria. Feel free to add or expand... 1. Which systems prepare the individual to be the most effective in the shortest amount of time? 2. Which systems most accurately uncover and refine each individual's unique skills, talents, and attributes? 3. Which systems craft and deliver continually evolving client assessment and periodization of training? 4. Which systems provide the individual longevity in fighting (through efficient training programming)? Fraternal, Scott "I don't respect any styles" Sonnon :-)

1. The system that asks the question; "most effective at what." Once the answer to that question is known, the rest is easy--develop and follow a methodology that allows the most efficient path to the objective. 2. The system, which as a whole, places tribal welfare as it's ultimate goal. This altruistic approach will ensure that individual talent is unmined and exposed in direct relation to specific, imposed demands. 3. The system that continually exposes its clients to the exploitation of their training integrity. 4. The system that operates most efficiently. Just some thoughts... Michael

5. movements in the system, whether drills or techniques, should not cause injuries to the user. (you shouldn't be injured all the time due to training) 6. the system should train the person to have the most effective mindset to deal with the stress of combat and training. there should be a methodology that will allow the individual to mentally operate under peak performance.
