I was thinking to myself of olympic sports. No martial arts are really considered sports; the only art in olymics is gymnastics. Back in roman and greek times fighting was never a part of sports in the olympics. Budo is considered a discipline by the olympics and I would have to agree with that for the mma. I think it is potentially dangerous at calling mma a sport if you are considering it with any olympic sport I think the same holds true for school sports. Wrestling is a sport, but mma can feed off the sport so to speak and turn it around into a non-sport disciplined way of living. Mma to me is like not having one uniform but lots of different disguises that you can manipulate at your enemy.
