MMA in general has been bashing TMA's for their use of 'fancy/flashy' moves that can't be applied well to real fighting for a very long time. Almost everyone believes that MT/Boxing is the best stand up and wrestling/BJJ is the best ground fighting. It seems everyone's views have opened a little since guys like GSP, Machida, Soko and Karo have done relatively well with TMA bases. But everyone still generally bashes TMA's. That's the same thing TMA's did to one another, bash other styles for not being effective when compared to their styles. Essentially MMA has become just like TMA's in it's closed minded views (and traditions). With that said I say fuck traditions, keep that mentality in mind, if it wasn't for that train of thought MMA wouldn't be around. To all you guys that train BJJ, go try Jiu-Jitsu/Catch Wrestling/Sambo, if you can't find some instructionals to watch. To all you MT guys, try TKD/Karate/San Shou or watch some instructionals. I'm not saying you'll find it to be superior to your original MA but I'm sure you'll find something useful that isn't available to you at your current gym. Adapt and apply, never stagnate, which is unfortunately what's happening to MMA. I personally also train MT and BJJ but I'm trying very hard to learn certain kicks from Karate and see if they can apply well to an MMA fight (so far most have). Best of luck with your experimenting, hope you find a good groove (and something useful).
