    I think the main reason that there isn't any Kung Fu, is that it's not really gone sports wise. Not properly.

    For the most part its still for killing.

    I could be wrong....

    If its for healing why learn the techniques for fighting?

    I think its for both, but in the context of MMA, your not going to get in the ring with one of those big ****ers and try and heal him of his anguish, or teach him Zen. " hello Mr kimbo Slice, have you tried Chi Gung?'

    **** that.

    im 6'2 and weigh 93 kilos, and there is no way im gonna get in a ring and let one of those guys tear me a new ass hole.

    On the street they're fair game and you can use what you want. i.e Kung Fu nastyness...

    you're always so reluctant to get the point.

    Yes it is for healing too.

    But the techniques in the forms are not.

    my friend, how long do you spend fighting in your life? how long do you spend healing? ask yourself that question, then consider the point again.

    you learn to fight so you don't have to. the other shit is sport. people get paid. it's not life and death.

    it is said that 'the benevolent are invincible.' but have you ever wondered why that is?

    i absolutely agree, 'you learn to fight so you don't have to. the other shit is sport. people get paid. it's not life and death.'

    but the initial point was that Kung Fu should be introduced to MMA.
    I don't think it can be because it isn't a sport, there are no rules, it is fighting to put people down, period.

    My point was that In MMA its all about "fighting".
    (notice the" ")

    I absolutely have no ambition in fighting etc etc. I don't have to, i don't need to prove a god dammed thing.

    And that for me is not discipline, its the state of mind that training to be a killing machine intrinsically instills into you.

    Every one at a decent level shouldn't feel the need to fight.

    But you have to concede that although half of kung Fu is about healing and the state of mind that you adopt, the half is about killing and breaking people. yin and yang. A little good in every evil, a little evil in every good.
