Not Kali, but similar enough to show what I mean:

Yes, DBMA are quite good along with Leo Gaje's Pekiti Tirsia Kali lineage of which they are an offspring. But I don't think, it's becoming a big competitive sport. Their gatherings are not competitive in the sense of sports competition. They are not about winning, but to get a certain self-awareness. And the risk of injury is quite too high for a competitive sport to ever get allowed by a sports comission. So no big money - no big spreading - and it stays with the enthusiasts.
Man deadpan totally doesn't work over the internet.

I agree that it probably wouldn't become a sport for the reasons you listed. Plus, I don't think that there would be an audience for it. Stick fighting isn't nearly appealing to the untrained eye as hand to hand, and it's taken years for the grappling component to be respected by laymen spectators.

That aside, I seriously do think that the Dog Brothers rawk.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.
