Martial arts were originally developed by peasants who were denied weapons by oppressive governments.

The modern iterations of these techniques are taught to professional soldiers and protective services only in their most basic forms, and only as a contingency, should both their primary and secondary means of defense/attack be unavailable... and the need for their employment is extremely rare.

As a means of actual defense/offense, martial arts are inferior to even the most basic of armaments, in both speed of skill acquisition, application and in lethality. It takes a fraction of the the time and training - and in terms of professional instruction, a fraction of the cost - to learn to defend one's self with superior and lethal force using a firearm.

Further, legitimate, certified firearms instructors are far easier to distinguish from the hap-hazard fakes that are often found teaching their so-called brands of martial arts.

As a means of maintaining physical fitness, when done safely, martial arts can be effective to that end. And proper, established forms of the more structured, classical martial arts can be useful in instilling discipline and focus in both children and adults.

But this UFC'esque, television-inspired, everyone-thinks-they're-a-mast er-teacher, amateur-night idiocy is barely useful in a practical sense, and is more likely to result in needless injury with no real positive effect. More importantly, these self-styled "teachers" will deprive you of cash better spent elsewhere, which is their primary intent.

All in all, "MMA" is not the smartest thing you can do with your money, your time, and your body, and almost completely useless in practice against even the least trained and most basically armed opponent on the street.

God help you if you're an MMA trained fighter and the poor sod you've been picking on has a buddy. You're toast. Saw it happen not too long ago in a bar in Lexington. Some MMA juicer was in there bragging and flexing, started looking to pick a fight with someone. Some average joe bumped him and he got all pissy about it and threw a punch. He got Joe 1 pretty handily, but then Joe's three buddies showed up and MMA asshole wound up on the floor getting the shit kicked out of him.

I just leaned back and laughed. There's no 'perfect system' of fighting, there's just you and your buds. That's the ways it's always been, and if you're too dumb to realize that, or too dumb to start something without proper backup, then you're just bleach in the gene pool....

Best Backup = 11 round magazine with 1 chambered. Even if half the shots are clean misses (not uncommon for even expert shooters when in a spontaneous confrontation) Joe 1 will still need have more than 5 buddies willing to risk death before tangling with an armed adversary... more, if said adversary can create enough space to reload.

More advisable for all parties to behave themselves and stay out of trouble/jail/ER/the morgue.
