May be people just don't want to discuss serious MA subjects.

A: Why doesn't style A have roundhouse kick?
B: Is this a style bashing?

Lol don't you start. Ha ha.☠️
When you

- poke your stick, that's jab/cross (or front kick).
- strike down your stick, that's overhand (or axis kick).
- swing your stick up, that's uppercut (or chin kick).
- swing your stick horizontally, that's hook punch (or roundhouse kick).

If you train stick fight, you don't need any MA teacher and you should be able to figure out all those by yourself. If a MA system doesn't have any of those, it just doesn't make logic sense to me.

If your system teaches you how to swing your stick like this, will you be able to figure out

- hook punch and roundhouse kick, and
- overhand and hammer fist, and
- uppercut?

Common sense discussion has nothing to do with style bashing. If a MA system doesn't have roundhouse kick, do people in that system ever train any stick fight?

No worries. I’m new here as well and trying to feel things out.

This thread reminds me of the time I visited a ninja school in South Carolina. I sat through a class and watched as an observer. It looked interesting and enjoyable. After the class finished and the students went home I spent a minute visiting with the instructor. He was a very nice guy. I asked him, so... Are you a Ninja? He said no he would never be that good. My reply was well if we can't ever be called Ninjas then what's the point? LOL....

What can I say. South Carolina, hotbed of the mystical martial arts.
I spent 12 or 13 years in SC. Upstate in the wooded hills of Laurens (guns and pickups were mandatory), Simpsonville, and then Charleston. There are some weird and interesting things there. A beautiful state with a lot of nature and history. Loved it!
