There is a sense of irony that the individual topics listed are a normal part of most all true TMA, nothing new at all. In the TMA I have been exposed to we learn all of them, albeit, certain terms (like pedagogy) may have never been used. Anatomy and psychology are big elements in learning self defense, both in the give and take of it. Behavior science could also be listed under SD. Anatomy is huge in learning how to perform technique. There is a ton of psychology throughout our curriculum. History and linguistics are straight forward teaching. Giving an old idea a new name is marketing 101. Just a horse of a different color. Still smells like a horse however.
