Yea your form is shit. Mostly because you're thinking of kicking hard rather than letting the form of consistent training guide you through bag work.

I can already tell you were a bit nervous from the way your weight distribution staggered too far on your rear leg and how your hands were almost trembling below your chin. Stop caring so much about the damage and kick. Power is nothing when its dodged easily and opens you up for strikes during your reset phase.

You leave the ground, you lose leverage of being able to push off the ground. Example, kicking at an angle instead of straight across. If you're in the air, even a little bit, then you can't drive. Also if someone catches you in the middle of a kick and you're not connected to the ground then you can easily be knocked over.

GSP is #2-3 P4P best. The superman punch he's throwing is a high risk, high reward technique, much like head kicks. The way he explodes into the technique and follows with a leg kick and exits to the side worked very well in the instances he used it.

"Perfect" form isn't everything. I always try to train as perfectly as possible, but I recently had an experience that changed my perspective a bit.

I went to an Erik Paulson seminar, and he had us actually wing our punches when we were hitting pads. He wanted as to straight up hit the pad as hard as we could, which generally meant reaching and using some "sloppy" technique that he showed us.

His rational was that if you look at knockout punches in MMA, a lot of times this is how it happens.

Of course, when Erik Paulson tells you to do something, you listen. He's probably the most "crisp" and perfectly technical martial artist I have ever met.

Seriously, look at him at 40:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWbmkz35NeA

Anyways, for people who are interested in martial arts, I would suggest trying them out and seeing what you like. I think what is important is finding a gym with good coaching, good training partners, good environment, and a martial art that you like.

You don't want to end up at a place you hate or at a place where you get injured often. A lot of BJJ places are very relaxed and people will spar pretty chill. Also, if you can find a traditional Muay Thai place, the chance of injury is pretty low. I personally love striking, but do not want a head injury. Traditional Muay Thai as is done in Thailand does not spar hard. The main chances of injury comes from clinching and overuse.

A lot of it depends on what's available near you, what you are doing it for and what you enjoy, whatever ticks the most boxes. If you already have a good base level of martial arts it really is about what you are doing it for.

Kung fu is meme
Go to a boxing or mma gym. BJJ is also great especially if you use to wressle.

Boxing

No sport is as hard and brutal as boxing, mma fags can say all they want about boxing not being "complete" as a martial art, but at the end of the day, they know that 10 rounds of boxing will always be harder on the body than 3 rounds of typical mma. Plus when it comes to actual street fighting, knowing how to strike and to manage distance between you and your opponent will always be more valuable than knowing about submission locks.
>>
>>35583508

>>35590430
>10 rounds of something is harder than 3 rounds of something else

This ladies and gentlemen, is the level of autism of boxers. They also seem to think MMA is about "submission locks". Please disregard their verbal defecation ITT. This coming from a guy who used to box and ditched the sport for Muay Thai because I seriously couldn't stand the culture in the boxing community. Such an amazing sport, too bad it was hijacked by morons and niggers in general.
>>
>is rational was that if you look at knockout punches in MMA, a lot of times this is how it happens.

Because most MMA have subpar striking/striking defence. Whenever someone with good striking comes around they wreck shit (Silva, McGregor, Holm)

Water polo combines both rugby and swimming and is without a doubt the most alpha sport out there. Try wrestling in water with guys that average 220 pounds and 6'3" in height, while simultaneously having to make crawl sprints the entire time. Oh and yeah, you have to be pretty fucking amazing too at handling and throwing a ball the size of a volley ball. With one hand.

MMA rounds are 2 minutes longer than boxing rounds. If you ever tried to box a 5 minute round (or anything higher than that) you'd understand that it gets exponentially harder for each extra minute. If you had to straight up box those three 5-minute rounds it would be as hard as going for ten 3-minute rounds, but since a lot of the action of MMA fights happen on the ground its not as physically exhausting. That was the point I was trying to make.

>too bad it was hijacked by morons and niggers in general.

Basicly I went to the same schol where my mom teached. Me being a teacher's son, I knew all the teachers, and the principal.

Also for some reason I thought my dad was cucked by him. Now that I'm thinking that explains all the affection that he gave to me lol
