No, but I'd like to try it one of these days. I don't even really care about the self-defense aspect that a lot of people preach. I just want to see how difficult it actually is.

It's kinda like basic training. Back when those commercials trying to say "There's strong, then there's Army strong." I wouldn't join the military, but I'd like to try to pass their version of "strong".

It's not that physically difficult though they're obviously good cardio workouts.
It's mainly about discipline and the mentality behind the art. [spoiler]Unless you do boxing.[/spoiler]

idk mayne, I'm gonna have to agree with >>35999136

Hmmmmm...... Werdum, Hunt, Velazquez, Holm, Rousey, Mayweather, Thompson, Lawler, etc. All of these fighters don't have very visible scars on their face. I mean, you can definitely tell Arlovskis nose is all fucked up but that is not found in every fighters face.

I've done a couple years of judo. Good fun, takes a lot out of you. Good technique destroys strength any day in it... but the guys who have good skill and are fit are pretty damn terrifying. People who lift should pick up a grappling art, they'll fuck some serious shit up.

It's old as fuck, doesn't matter where you learn it as far as iron body is concerned. It's just extreme adaption. Iron body does not involve combat with other people.

This. I have a friend who went to college with me and he can't get his head around the concept that lifting won't help him in a fight.
He's always like...
>it probably helps a little
And it seriously doesn't. I've done both, martial arts and lifting and it doesn't help at all because strikes are a sort of wiping motion while lifting is a continuous movement through a full ROM, generally with no consideration for increasing the movement speed.
Hell, it doesn't even translate into wrestling. Only the highest level fighters need to lift weights and that's only for muscle and tendon conditioning, not because it increases punching power considerably.

But yeah, I did jujitsu and it's the most fun and gayest sport I've ever done.

I can see you didn't touch on grappling.
Being a lifter most definitely helps on fighting if you're grappling. You're able to fight leverages and apply your own much more easily if you have strength.
That being said, not everyone even lifts for strength. Being a puffy cloud will only hinder you.

No, no, it does help but it helps very little because wrestling is not entirely intuitive. I know next zero amateurs who wouldn't gas themselves out wrestling someone with experience, trying to brute force their victory.
Truth is wrestling without experience just looks silly.

What happens when the other guy is blue belt level?

Sorry buddy, but muscle helps. Even as a striker muscle helps. Just the weight of it helps, and if you're going to gain weight, it's better for it to be muscle.

Fuck yeah, I'm originally from a Lloyd Irvin affiliate. We were at a competition once where the rest of Team LI was competing in Maryland and we beat a few of them. They tried to fight us at the event. A few black belts from other LI affiliates ran in to try stop it but pretty much every purple, blue and white belt were about to start fighting.

Probably all pissed cus Lloyd was fuckin' 'em.

Judo guy from before. I may not have phrased it well, but muscle is a huge boon. With proper technique, a 125 girl can throw, then snap the arm of a 175 pound man. No problem. Although of he has skill, it obviously changes things. That said, the move has to be very, very good. All about leverage. But if you have power to back it up, if your move isn't even quite right, still works. And even without it - I've sparred with friends. I'm 160 pounds, and I'm about even with my untrained muscled friends at 225 pounds. That's basically it. General, very rough rule, a judo belt is equal to about 10 pounds of muscle. Have both, even better.

I've ran into it many times - a hold or choke that's effective done by a skelly is un breakable by someone strong. Had a training partner at one point who always trained his neck as well. Damn near impossible to choke out if your move wasn't *perfect*. Like trying to choke a fucking tree.
>>
>>35999084
>and they barely give a shit about what their hair is like

I've been training and competing in one combat sport or another for like 14 years now, and I care what my hair looks like. I also care what kind of impression I give other people so I wear nice clothes too.
>>
>>36001038

Didn't complete that thought. I'm about even in a fight with the much larger friends thanks to skill. If they had any training, the combination would destroy me.

>I bet after you're done beating him up, you'd ram your cock in his ass then make him suck your shit cock.
I would, but I wouldn't beat him up, and I'd make him douche first so no poo dick.

Is it true there's a lot of rivalry between BJJ gyms or is that mostly hype?

Pretty much hype. Bjj fags tend to get a bit more competitive with each other than most, but martial arts places in general tend to be pretty bro with each other.

>>
>>36000810

Because it works. Combine good techniques with workable training, you've got a winning combo. It's not that their moves are inherently superior - other arts have good shit too. But as effective as palm strikes to the throat may be, you can't practice them with force unless you intend to kill your sparring partner. So you literally train to pull your hits. Grappling isn't the same. You can practice proper technique with force, slowly applying force until they tap. The result is effective, powerful training.


Which does bring to mind - best Korean soldiers train martial arts against prisoners. Could they actually turn Kung fun and hapkido into the best arts through training lethal moves at full force?
>>
>>36001380

Sadly training won't help that. I've toned down on my judo thanks to torn tendons. Shit hurts man.
>>
>>36000810
BJJ/JJ is the most common MA, as it was so widely introduced into local militaries via USSR & USA.
If is subjectively the best fighting style due to the facts that it is incredibly easy to learn while still having a high success rate for wins/losses against combatants that do not know it.
It is probably the most common complimentary style of all MMA fighters, behind Boxing training of course which is taught to nearly every MMA fighter for striking purposes.
If you look at the list of people in the last 20 years with repeating wins or titles. You'll quickly see it's listed a lot as part of their training, though maybe not their chosen discipline.

For all it's problems, the UK always seems to have a wider range of services and products available than the rest of Europe.

There are entire countries in the continent without an Apple store for example. When I studied electronic engineering in uni there were a lot of European students who said their countries have no stores specialised in electronic components to the likes of Maplin. Apparently getting a transistor or capacitor can be quite tricky when you cross the channel.

Sorry for the off topic but now I understand why Americans call us "europoors". The lack of consumer goods in Europe is truly disturbing. The Soviet Union won the cold war on this part of the world.
