Ahead of his time.
In May of 1987 Inside Kung Fu, magizine wrote a feature Article on ,Mathew Bayley and his Martial Arts School in Colorado Spring.
The theme of the story: Then Sensei Bayley had created and was teaching the” prototype martial arts system of future” because he was mixing the best parts of numerous fighting styles.
In the article now Grand Master Mathew Bayley was quoted: “America has always been the mixing pot of the world. With the vast number of martial arts systems developed all over the world, to study one style to the exclusion of all the others was like going to a salad bar and eating just lettuce”
Today Mixed Martial Arts is a billion-dolor industry.
