He has a point in that guys today are training to win an MMA match rather than to win a fight, but Iím not sure thatís fundamentally different from the old four hour Helio JJ matches.

When I start my martial art, weíre going to sift crime data to find out what people actually need to be able to do to defend themselves and update the rules annually to keep it relevant to that need.

Of course that would only work for a recsport/amateur format; if you look at Judo or IPSC you can see that anytime you have an incentive to game the system, realism goes out the window.
