    In regards to martial arts fallacies, a common “No True Scot” frequently occurs when you hear MMA enthusiasts claim that a traditional martial art is useless in MMA. When provided an example a traditional martial artist winning in MMA they deny that it is an example because it doesn’t fit their definition of the traditional martial art. Eg. “Karate doesn’t work”, Karate practitioner Machida wins in MMA, “but he won using MMA techniques and didn’t actually do karate” (expecting him to fight in rigid horse stances and crane kick and karate chop the entire fight)

    here is an example of Joe Rogan committing the fallacy with regards to wing chun

      Although I completely agree, and actually talk about that particular Rogan comment frequently, I have a feeling Dave may feel differently. Let’s wait and see. :)

    Nope, I agree with the sentiment completely. I actually had that general concept in the talk (although I can’t remember if I mentioned it on the episode) but I placed it in the “3 Cautions” section under the “That shit won’t work in the ring” false dilemma. An excellent ring technique may be lousy in an ambush (example: pulling guard)and vice-versa. The idea some people have that if it doesn’t work in the ring it’s worthless is the false dilemma.

    Thanks for the comment, Edward!
