Turned from powerlifting to muay thai a year ago as my main discipline. During first month I realized how unathletic I've been having only raw strength. So yes, muay thai's most complete stand-up martial art. If you have time and money I'd advise freestyle wrestling as a back-up, best if you could find a gym with a Russian/former Soviet republic coach for the latter cause they're undisputed masters at it.
Though bjj, judo etc. are all valid for the ground game aspect too.
That's what I do. However I turned from pure powerlifting to oly lifting as I believe it increases explosiveness a lot more. Also, shit like dumbbell snatches might seem weird at first, but my right cross packs much more power after I started doing it.
Sparring is a training tool, the idea is to make it competitive without beating the shit out of each other. When you spar you try to land your strikes, try to make them feel it and go for your submissions.
100% means going for knockouts. Snapping on locks to dislocate or break limbs. That's not sparring.
>>35678327 I know that's not what sparring is all about But you can go 100% in jiu jitsu all day long, when you get a submission you don't crank on it you just stop and reset. It's still training and you have to respect your partner
try throwing punches just to the body at 80% You won't last very long
my definition of a 100% kimura or juji is "don't even give them time to tap".
same with throws. if i'm sparring and i get a throw in, i'll give them tine to breakfall. if i'm giving it everything i have there's no breakfall, they're hitting the floor hard.
i understand what you're saying, but also from how you're talking about easing on submissions you know the difference between a lock in training and putting the full weight of your body behind a technique.
Brazilian Ju-Jitsu, as opposed to regular Jujitsu.
Jujitsu is one of the older Japanese martial arts and really favours bigger, stronger guys. Judo tried to remove this advantage by creating a new system based more around throws, BJJ again derives from Judo and tries to completely remove a bigger fighter's advantage by staying on the ground.
It's called Brazilian Jujitsu because that's where the first schools of the style were.
