I’ve talked in the past about the term “fighters” and how Muncie and East-Central Indiana have produced some of the best full-contact fighters in the world. I’m not here to take anything away from them or combat sports.
I need to make it clear, however, that that is not what we do. I’m not a coach, I’m a martial art teacher. People have come to me looking to crosstrain, to find something that will give them an edge in the ring. I don’t accept them into the school. In my opinion, combat sports are separate from martial art.
