Lol you are overanalyzing Med, no one's trying to make you conform to anything, questions of martial arts history are a different realm than actual training.




Are you sure? In fact, I can't even make a post without someone who was not even in the conversation jumping in and begin a rant based on the fact that I do not share his same view point.

That's what this is, a question of what is actually in the historical record, not an argument about training methods or efficacy.




Zach, that's the funny thing about logic, not finding something in an incomplete historical record does not prove something false. Now, if it was written there is no ground fighting in karate or kata, then that's one thing. But to state that since you have never seen it nor been taught it nor heard of it mentioned doesn't prove anything except maybe you should dig deeper.
