Clearly the guy had a poor experience with his school/s.
Not an uncommon outcome these days......sadly enough.
But I still don't understand why people routinely mistake THIER personal experience for EVERYONES personal experience. Then they draw blanket conclusions for what are fairly subjective and individual events and outcomes.
In terms of MMA--IMO its the same set of problems from a different angle. How many people do you know that are willing to put up with the rigors of full MMA training?
Exactly!! Hence why WKF style karate is so popular: it retains a combative element without being overly brutal. I suspect a lot of people rather like this, hence why the WKF is the largest karate governing body and recognised by the IOC. They can fight within certain limits but still get up and go to work on Monday. To quote a song " The public gets what the public wants". Supply and demand. There are clearly a lot of people who like WKF style karate, otherwise it wouldn't be so popular.
