To each is own but personally I think point/sport competition only does one thing for the MA and thats generate sport schools that tell people that these are street effective techniques when often they are not.

Hey Chen Zen

I agree with the problem, but disagree with the causation you suggest.

I don't think it's the practice of sport karate that's at fault, but if instructors who teach a sport oriented MA then say it's street effective, that's where you run into a problem.

Mind you, I have been on my share of "This is the real thing", "The most practical system known to mankind", "Get, real", seminars. Some have been useful. Some have been crap.

There's good and bad in all.
