As thy days, so shall thy strength be - Deuteronomy 33:25
Well remember that martial arts is the "art of war" so literally on a battlefield setting is where they were used. Now our military does use their branch of ju-jitsu, military ju-jitsu, which isn't all about nice looking ways to knock out or kill your enemy but whatever is fastest deadliest and leaves you out of trouble.
Which is exactly what MMA does. It takes the hard punches from boxing the takedowns from wrestling the submissions from ju-jitsu knees and elbows from muy thai kicks from kickboxing muy thai tae kwon doe and other martial arts.
Though MMA doesn't have the formal setting of a dojo where you bow to your opponent and recieve a belt after completing several tasks I still believe it can be called a martial art considering that it can be used, and probably is, in a war setting. Nothing to flashy in a cage fight but you do see devestating blows. No leaping side kicks since they can put you in danger.
Though basic martial arts are also interesting to learn I believe that they wouldn't stand a chance against an MMA artist since they have a broader stricking game.
So if you're looking for tradition then stick to a formal dojo and martial art. But if you're looking for the best way to knock out your opponent then go to an MMA place.
I have experience in both dojo and an MMA training. To be honest I learned more in my MMA than I did in my dojo training. I had 2 years of Karate maybe about half a year in Tae Kwon Do and 3 years in MMA and 2 years in wrestling. In MMA I completely changed the way that I kick. Before I would pivot my foot, in karate and tae kwon do, but in MMA my coach had me step out at an angel open up my legs to have more of an impact on my kick and more of a drive through.
So again it is based upon the individual on what he or she is looking for. Both are arts of war.
The body, the most complex system and weapon known to man.

Royce Gracie.I was a Bruce Lee fan in my teens as millions of others were. I was a wrestler in high school and took up judo in my late twenties.I love the throws,holdowns,chokes and submissive holds.I was a fan of UFC until they changed rules,added rounds and time limits. I guess they got tired of grapplers winning!
