    The problem is terminology. Art - Sport. It tends to imply an either or type of thing where it really more of a range type.

    So .....

    Art - no sporting aspect what so ever.

    Aort - primarily an art but with some sporting aspects

    Spart - primarily a sport with some art aspects

    Sport - just a sport.

    There you go, problem solved. :hat:

    You've just made the problem about 16 times worse. Is akido an art or an aort? Is TKD a sport or a Spart? Is Karate a sport, spart, aort or art?

    Omicron is around.

    I like where this is going, but may I make a suggestion? What about sports and arts that are also heavily based on philosophy? I propose the words "phort" and "phart" are needed to adequately describe these. I dunno about anyone else, but I'd be proud to call myself a phartist!

    Personally I prefer a style that has elements of art, self defence and philosophy.
    An art that is "Dapht" basically.

    how about a defensive art or "defart"?

    I do a style that is part show and part art.
    Essentially I do a shart. A couple of times a week.
