Um…. what’s “flaming?”

Hi Lee, “flaming” is hostile and insulting interactions online. Personal attacks, threats, name-calling, etc. Thanks for bringing it up! Joanne

Wouldn’t it be nice if martial artists had a more professional attitude towards other martial artists? Sort of like an informal guild, focusing on professional standards, promoting the industry to the public, and helping one another build their business?

Sadly, even in 2010, we’ve still got a “my kingdom vs your kingdom” mentality prevailing. *sigh*

I admire your goals, and sincerely hope people take notice and participate so we all can benefit.

Hi Adam, thanks for your support. We agree that the prevailing approach is overly proprietary, which is why the NWMAF exists. Feel free to contribute positive comments anytime!
