>>35998747 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".
>>35998830 >I just want to see how difficult it actually is 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]
>>35998747 >dat hair Holy shit I wish there were local mma tournaments in Asia I would fuck that hipster anime faggot with some jab cross hooks. Then fucking body slam him mid air when he tries his gay tai kimchi do air kicks at me.
>>35999146 idk mayne, I'm gonna have to agree with >>35999136 and >>35999121. Most damage to these fighters isn't permanent and especially when they're on TV, they're gonna have make-up and what not. Looking "pretty" doesn't mean someone isn't a good fighter.
>>35999146 >I've never seen a single fighting event >But it definitely makes sense all of their faces would be totally fucked up
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.
>>35998984 > sees Asian fuccboi > immediately gets visceral reaction and threatens to strangers online about beating him up Found the closet homo. I bet after you're done beating him up, you'd ram your cock in his ass then make him suck your shit cock.
>>35999665 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.
>>35999881 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.
>>35999985 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.
>>36000472 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.
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.
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?
>>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.
>>36001587 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.
