The topic of Traditional Martial Arts is a sensitive one within MMA with many saying that they arenít needed within the sport due to their outdated methods and techniques. I like the arguments that split people 50/50 and get people talking with relevant for and against topics of conversation.

In order to get a balanced argument, you need to have studied both Traditional Martial Arts as well as the more common martial arts within MMA which are in some sense seen as the base or core disciplines. Thatís why we have gone to BJJ black belt and high level Bujinkan Ninjutsu practitioner, Simon Yeo to get both sides of the argument.
