I would like to see martial arts as well. I took sparring now, but that is not correct. I do freefight based on thai boxing and kick boxing. Of course you do sparring there, but actually it is martial arts.
Multiple choice would have been nice, because I do other sports as well, but freefight is the sportiest.

    I agree on seeing a entry specific to martial arts, but from what you describe, aren't you doing something closer to sport fighting? I'm not saying that there is any thing wrong with sport fighting, but I generally don't consider wrestling, boxing, Tae Kwon Do (most forms, anyway), or kickboxing to be martial arts. They are designed for competition and exercise more than anything, whereas a martial art is specifically for killing/maiming an enemy during a battle (indiviual or otherwise).

    Let me state again, just in case I'm misunderstood, I'm not making any judgements about the relative merits of sport fighting and martial arts, I am merely poining out a difference.
