The question is right in the title of this thread!:ultracool Do you feel that the Reality Based arts teach in a more effective manner than a TMA? For reference purposes, the RBSD arts would fall into the category of folks like Tony Blauer, Peyton Quinn, Marc "Animal" MacYoung, and arts such as Krav Maga. Your TMAs are: TKD, Kenpo, Shotokan, etc. We have a great mixture of people here on Martial Talk, so I'm hoping we'll get some good debating!
