NASKA vs ATA Battle: A True Sports Collaboration “The Innovators vs The Corporations”. CAN THIS BE PULLED OFF?
Quite Frankly this is something the sport martial arts community needs to have in order to revive the true spirit! Last night Mike Chat, the co-founder of XMA, made a facebook announcement making the battle between ATA and Naska official. Ironically his success was from NASKA as well as the student he trained were also NASKA world champions (i.e. Taylor Lautner and Matt Mullins).
The mysterious cameo appearance of Carmichael Simon at the Diamond Nationals proves this is not just a coincidence! These guys are world champions who revolutionized the sport martial arts world with their SOLID BASICS and acrobatic kicking (also know as tricking). This anticipated battle is much needed. Bringing martial art competitors from different backgrounds is not gonna make the sport better, but also embrace diversity. Its time for us to get aspired again. Not just for martial arts competition, but for the Art itself.
