Very interesting knowing what stimulates you but isnt this about martial arts? Dont think i ever saw that movement in any katas but rest assured i will try to look out for it the next time i watch people train.Come to think about it all the boxers I know dont have your problem.

I find the lack of a muay thai kickboxing thread very dissrepectful, especially the comments of the moderators classying boxing, kickboxing etc into mma. Also, it seems that you dont like boxing or kickboxing because they aren't "tma".

Well guess what. Boxing is older than any of the other martial arts listed in the forum sections. Muay Thai is one of the oldest martial arts aswell.

Kickboxing and boxing are not MMA. Thats like saying taekwondo and wing chun are the same. They are completly different.

*swaps Spartan's regular coffee for decaf*

Disrespectful? Ok, sit sown, please. None of the mods here are "disrespecting" boxing or MT. Several of us have had some boxing or kickboxing training, BTW. You may want to read up a bit before you start making statements regarding what you THINK you know about us.

Still haven't really heard any compelling reasons to create a seperate forum for boxing, when IN FACT modern MT and kickboxing and MMA all use western boxing hand techniques.

Kickboxing and MT comprise the stand-up portion of most MMA fighting repetoires - which we have a forum for. So, unless there you have a really good reason, I don't see the need for one - yet.

Have any of you that want the boxing /kickboxing/MT forums ever tried posted anything on the MMA forum?

How exactly is it disrespectful? We don't have a systema, ninjutsu, kyudo or pankration section either. Does that mean we don't like those systems? No, it means we don't have a large enough demand for them.

How is that disrespectful? You do realize that MMAs aren't a specific set of arts right? You do realize that MMAs are more of a principle? It's a training philosophy to study and use the most practical applications from various arts in order to be a more rounded fighter. Many of which encompass boxing, kickboxing, muay thai and some variation of jujutsu. Try actually reading people posts and stop putting words in others mouths with out knowing what you’re talking about.

Like MattJ said, do a little reading before you start making assumptions. This just may be the most ridiculous thing you said in this post.

I think it's been established that the age of an art doesn't always mean it's more effective. But for the sake of argument, what does the age of boxing and muay thai have to do with having their own section?

I was wrong, this is the most ridiculous thing you have said this post. But you are right, boxing and kickboxing aren't MMA. They are however common practice in MMA and therefore discussions based on boxing, kickboxing and muay thai would fit perfectly well in the MMA section.

I don't know how old you are but you need to grow up and stop throwing tantrums about petty stuff like this. If you insist that you MUST have a separate boxing section here you go. http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=boxing+forum

Problem solved.

Surely boxing in its modern form (Marquis of Queensberry)is only about 150 years old at most (as before this it included grappling and all-sorts). Jujitsu is older than this as are many sword arts.

Spartan changed lafs decaf for wiskey

I appologise for my rant, im quiting smoking at the moment so Im abit edgy and felt the need to vent.

I personally dont see boxing or kickbxoing as just an element for mma, but if you dont want a forum, then non of my business.

No one said boxing was "just and element" of MMA but it is common in MMA. Since we have a MMA section and don't have many members who have voice a desire for an exclusive boxing section there isn't a need for one. Would you really want a boxing section knowing you may be the only one there? It kind of defeats the purpose.

No one is trying to down play boxing or kickboxing. Only stating that since they are commonly practiced in MMA that the MMA section would make more sense for discussion than creating another new section.

Woah, settle down.

I thought mods jobs were to stop people flaming.

I know your probably belittled everday of your life. Hence why you need to personally attack people on the internet. Wow your a big man.

ps. If you feel the need to ban me for this post, so be it. I dont take personal attacks by anyone. Especially "bad asses" with inferiority complexes on the internet.

pps. Thanks for the post Laf. I see where you are coming from.
