I went to a Martial arts show case for the local hospice last night. There where judo,kickboxing,trad ju-jitsu,mma,karate,crava maga,muay thai and akido clubs in attendance and a very large matted area with over 2000 spectators.
It was an excellant night and it let the general public see and know and talk to people from various ma back grounds while raising money for charity. I thought this was a good idea to bring M.A. to the public. As i'm sure it can be a little daunting for new members visting a dojo and seeing lots of students in different coloured belts.
