Do you know a good place to train Kyokushin in Fort Lauderdale?
>>
>>746126
Nope, it's the same as Dade.
>>
>>746127
Oh, So i guess it's pretty much the same with Shotokan or Goju Ryu
>>
>>746126
Why you wanna do knotty so much op?
>>
>>746134
kyokushin is a child of goju. I personally thing goju is a better choice because there is less emphasis on competition, more on actual fighting

>>749244
I practiced goju ryu for almost 5 years, and I would say it's the other way around for the most part, because kyokushin trains to actively fight in competitions and alike their training is much better suited for actual fighting, where goju often uses less practical methods
>>
>>749278
goju is about overwhelming someone, taking them down, and stomping the shit out of them

OP: To reach my goal, which is learning karate and kung fu and training pretty fucking hard in both of them, and then beat as much \boxing+bjj/ guys so i can shut their arrogant mouths and prove that karate and kung fu can be very effective.
>>
>>749276
>enjoy your incomplete slug fest devoid of soft techniques and follow ups
Too bad I actually trained in kick boxing (with a heavy influence from Full Contact Karate), wrestled, and competed in amateur kick boxing and MMA before I ever became interested in Kyokushin.

But nah, of course a strip mall Krotty dojo that doesn't ever actually fight trains fighting better than places that do.
>>
>>749281
>goju is about overwhelming someone, taking them down, and stomping the shit out of them

You can really see that at all of the Goju ryu "dojos" that do 100% kihon and kata and 0% anything else.
>>
>>749295
>with a heavy influence from Full Contact Karate
oh sweet, so goju
>>749297
you know there are two schools of goju, right? okinawan and american. Peter urban who founded american goju after gogen yamaguchi called him a white piggu pioneered combat karate
>>
>>749307
>oh sweet, so goju
One of the two guys who taught me how to fight (pro kick boxer in the 70's to the early 90's) was Yoshukai and the other is Chito-ryu (also a retired pro kick boxer from the same time frame)

>>749307
>you know there are two schools of goju, right?
Unless OP lives in Okinawa, he's far more likely to get the regular strip mall Krotty experience.
>>
>>749312
the point is if someone is taking goju ryu and can't trace their teacher back to peter urban either directly or via johnny khul, they are learning it from someone using the name of the style without permission and likely not even learning it at all
>>
>>749316
Not the cock-fag you're trying to have gay sex with but his point stands that OP will likely get strip mall experience. SO why then look for the pearl in the pile of shit when he can just take kyokushin and not worry to much about linages and other crap
>>
>>749318
I remember it was fight quest or human weapon. They went to okinawa and did goju with morio higaonna. They ended up having to go back to tokyo and fighting some kyokushin guys because the okinawans refused to fight.

The point is that you told him to pick up a real martial art, so one martial art, and then you posted that meme clearly not allowing the option of choosing just one art, but at least TWO MOTHER FUCKING martial arts!
Shut the fuck up, you stupid ass mother fucker!
I train Traditional Wing Chun, and that IS MMA, fucker!
My people were training MMA before you even left your daddy's ballsack, bitch-boy!
You don't know shit about MMA, and it just shows how stupid you are by trying to imply to ME that MMA doesn't work!

>to beat as much \boxing+bjj/ guys so i can shut their arrogant mouths and prove that karate and kung fu can be very effective

1.
The whole point of this "Boxing/MuayThai/Kyokushin + Wrestling/Judo/BJJ" meme is:
-they are availible (many places teach them)
-they are reliable (it's hard to find a McDojo due to standardisation and competitions)
-they practice full contact sparring early on

Nobody who understood this, wood claim that Kung Fu, Krav Maga or whatever are useless, if they do full contact sparring and have qualified instuctors, i.e. ths "Dr. Gobling" does train Kung Fu or something, but they do full contact sparring.
But since it's hard for beginners to judge if the coaches are qualified, it's good to take a "solid" martial art as a starting point.


2.
There are already guys who did this, Lyoto Machida Shotokan used Shotokan Karate and many people used Kyokushin (Bas Rutten, Georges St-Pierre, Francisco Filho), nto talking about K-1 where a lot of amazing fighters have a Kyokushin background.

As for Kung Fu, they are kinda special because it's a lot about weapons (so it would be more accurate to compare them with martial arts like HEMA, not necessarily MMA). Nevertheless SanShou is a respected martial art at /asp/.

By searching, and failing, to find any karate/kung fu that will actually let you fight, you're actually proving them right.

Karate and Kung Fu are looked down upon by other arts because it's highly unlikely you will get any real time fighting experience/training from them. You will be guaranteed to get this training in any Judo/BJJ/Wrestling/Sambo/Boxing/Muay Thai/MMA gym, but to find it in Kung Fu requires a bloody continental quest.

Stop being butthurt, accept reality, and act accordingly.

>wouldn't it be better to just learn Kickboxing with roots in Karate

All Muay Thai prectitioners (yes, also Buakaw) cross train in boxing to get good at striking and no one critisizes it.

But everybody mocks Kyokushin because you need to crosstrain in boxing before you can enter a kickboxing competition.

Just saying.

Hey /asp/, guest from /sci/.

Pretty much what this guy said. Don't mean to sound like a typical Internet Tough Guy, but I did Kyokushin for ~5 years, until an injury + shit at work put a stop to that. Let me tell you something, Kyokushin fighters do not fuck around, their punches have an alarming stopping power and it's simply down to their training regiment.

By my third real competition against other competitive fighters, I felt basically unbreakable to most things an ordinary person could throw at me. Regular punches and kicks just bounced off my solar plexus, ribs, stomach and thighs not leaving any real impact. The reason for this is that training was absolutely brutal, focusing almost half the time on stamina and body hardening. The reason for *that* is because the other half was focused on building really good technique for making other karate practitioners go down - guys like us, who spend half their time getting pummeled by their teammates' fists and kicks to build stamina.

After a few weeks you stop going back home black and blue, you stop getting bruises or sprained ankles or tight muscles, and you become really efficient at taking down people who don't seem upset that you just heel-kicked them in the liver. It's a damn tough sport and I wish I could come back to it some day.

Competition fighting is objectively closer to combat than non-compliant drilling and endless forms are.

>you want to learn how to kill a man, come see me

Oh yeah, how many men have you killed? Were these in deadly street encounters, or in your frequent bloodsport death tournaments?

None, right? Yeah, it's none.


You get better at fighting people by fighting people. The fact that you can't believe this shows that you're delusional.

How about this. Go to a combat sport gym, find a game competitor, tell him youre a goju-ryu death machine who has never sparred, and have a match. I guarantee you'll be surprised.
>>
>>749891
>who has never sparred
there goes that nonsense again. my sparring is more realistic than your competitions

you have lost sight of the second part of the style, the ju. where else do we see the word ju in martial arts? see the problem here?

attack and destroy, that's the motto. break through with hard striking, drop someone with soft techniques, stomp the shit out of them while they are on the ground, and if you are still holding the limb you grabbed for your takedown, snap it off and take it home with you.
>>
>>749893
This is what delusional dancers actually believe
>>
>>749894
if someone wanted to play knockdown karate with me the only problem I would have is avoiding being disqualified for using illegal techniques out of reflex. It's the same reason I have trouble boxing seriously because I keep having to remind myself not to kick someone.

Being used to the format is the only chance a kyo guy would have in beating me, I guarantee every aspect of my striking and footwork is superior and more complete, and even if it isn't I have a whole library of throws and submissions they have never seen that I can drop on them
>>
>>749895

You don't have any reflexes because you don't practice what you claim to practice. What you practice is some combination of pulling your punches , missing and hitting a different target, and going in slow motion. You have never punched someone in the throat or gouged someone's eyes in your life.

The knockdown fighter on the other hand will see you as tomato can #397 and crush you accordingly.

How? How is your sparring more realistic than hard competition sparring? Do you and your training partners regularly cripple each other? Do you drop and stomp the shit out of resisting opponents often? How many limbs have you snapped off and taken home with you? Be specific.

How many times have you taken a hit and had to shake it off, to continue the match? How many times have you dealt with the adrenaline dump of fighting? How many times have you out-maneuvered and defeated a non-compliant opponent?

None, You have never done any of this. Have you?

I spent a lot of time learning 2deadly4spar shit before I tried out Judo. Guess how much I 'accidentally' pulled out in my first few classes? Guess how many training partners I reflexively maimed with my superior combat skills?

None. I got thrown around like a pool toy and strangled.

Just try sparring some 'sport' fighters. You'll see.

I've been in more gunfights than I can count on two hands, and I ate a ton of shrapnel on my last tour, bud. I've also been in and around the kind of fights that occur in the life of an infantry goon. I know about fighting.

I also know that fighting skills need to be trained on a consistent basis, getting as close to reality as possible without permanently crippling those training. The only place that occurs in martial arts is in combat sports that spar and compete.

So yeah, I am asking what you do on a daily basis. How do you train that makes you too deadly to step into a competitive match? What things do you do in training that are too dangerous to do in a sparring match? Not the things you pretend to do, the ones you actually carry out? Be specific, please.

>>
>>750005
Or maybethere was some value to the material. That isnt to say that the Goju of today is the same as what he did, as far as I know he did far more conditioning than the average suburban karateka.

You are completely ignoring that Oyama knew Boxing, Judo and Karate before inventing his own Karate style. He was definately a capable fighter:

>in 1947, Mas Oyama won the karate section of the first Japanese National Martial Arts Championships after WWII

>In 1952, he travelled the United States for a year, demonstrating his karate live and on national televison. During subsequent years, he took on all challengers, resulting in fights with 270 different people. The vast majority of these were defeated with one punch! A fight never lasted more than three minutes, and most rarely lasted more than a few seconds. His fighting principle was simple — if he got through to you, that was it.

kyokushin doesn't have anything proprietary about it. Especially that emphasis on physical conditioning you guys always brag about. letting people beat on you, not flinching, enduring pain, these are the foundation of goju training

Not going to bash the body hardening and exercise techniques. I can see how fitness and 'toughness' training can definitely help someone in a fight. But unless that stuff is backed up with some real time sparring, it's just going to make you a tougher spaz.
>>
>>750246
>But unless that stuff is backed up with some real time sparring, it's just going to make you a tougher spaz.
its just strange to assume there is no sparring going on. I'll give you a run down of a typical class
7-10
first 45 minutes or so are spent exercising, not warming up, exercising hard to build as much fatigue as possible
Then comes technique practice, striking, grappling, and take downs
then conditioning which as you would guess is all about standing still an letting people punch and kick you, throw a med ball at your gut, smack you around a bit.
More exercise, generally super setting push ups an burpees, again for fatigue purposes
The last hour is kumite, protective gear is allowed but discouraged

you will fight until you are told you may stop, sometimes someone will be told to cheap shot you from behind while you are fighting, there will be multiple rounds against fresh opponents.

I once saw someone fail a black belt exam because he threw up during kumite. Too bad, you get one chance a year, try again next november.
>>
>>750235
>kyokushin doesn't have anything proprietary about it. Especially that emphasis on physical conditioning you guys always brag about. letting people beat on you, not flinching, enduring pain, these are the foundation of goju training
No.

The reason why Kyokushin and it's offshoots Ashihara and Enshin are lauded isn't because of body conditioning, but because they actually fight and are proven in professional striking and MMA promotions.
>>
>>750252
>first 45 minutes or so are spent exercising, not warming up, exercising hard to build as much fatigue as possible

This is dumb. Not because conditioning is dumb, but a straight up conditioning workout should be separate or after your technical training.

And you should be putting in enough volume and intensity in your technical workouts actually learning that you should be okay having a separate conditioning workout at another time or following it.

>Then comes technique practice, striking, grappling, and take downs

Again, you have this backwards.

>then conditioning which as you would guess is all about standing still an letting people punch and kick you, throw a med ball at your gut, smack you around a bit.

Which isn't why Kyokushin, and other systems and programs that actually produce fighters, is liked.

>More exercise, generally super setting push ups an burpees, again for fatigue purposes

Which is stupid.

>The last hour is kumite, protective gear is allowed but discouraged

There are two reasons this is stupid.

1. You shouldn't be absolutely fucking exhausted when you're trying to get down range, timing, rhythm, footwork, and defense.

2. You can get your conditioning WHILE sparring and rolling.

It's much better to spend three hours sparring and be tired at the end than spend 2 hours trying to make people puke and then expecting them to actually get anything out of sparring.

There is more than enough room for gut check workouts, but this being your overall programming is just bad.
>>
>>750289
Thinking about this more:

This really sounds like the shit that would happen at a strip mall Krotty dojo because there are too many people to actually effectively train.

So instead of spending time actually teaching people how to fight you're spending more than half your time just exercising with no real purpose.
>>
>>750289
it isn't stupid at all. are you expecting to not get tired during your fight? and you know what happens at the first sign of fatigue? you get sloppy, your techniques falls apart, you slow down and open up

that is why we train under fatigue. I know I can fight when I'm fresh, an having stamina is a secondary thought. You need to be able to perform when your stamina is depleted. My technique will be as sharp in the last round as it will be in the first because that's where I train it.
Your efforts to wear me down will be unsuccessful, as you tire I will still be on point.
>>
>>750299
>it isn't stupid at all. are you expecting to not get tired during your fight?

Actually I never have. Because I have good programming so I'm doing actual effective conditioning and actual effective technical training.

>and you know what happens at the first sign of fatigue? you get sloppy, your techniques falls apart, you slow down and open up

Which isn't conducive to actually taking anything away from sparring.

>that is why we train under fatigue.

No, you are training under fatigue because you have shitty programming. And your "sensei" is hiding that shitty programming with meaningless exercise.

>I know I can fight when I'm fresh,

Lol sure you do.

>an having stamina is a secondary thought. You need to be able to perform when your stamina is depleted.

Yes. Which is why you need to have actual effective technical training time, and good programming.

>My technique will be as sharp in the last round as it will be in the first because that's where I train it.

Lol no. Your "technique" will be as shitty and sloppy in the first round as the last because you aren't actually getting the chance to effectively train your range, timing, defense, footwork etc.


>Your efforts to wear me down will be unsuccessful, as you tire I will still be on point.

Sure thing Dojo Hero.
>>
>>750305
>your "sensei"
shihan actually, certified and proven

but more importantly, you can go ahead and disregard me all you want but it doesn't change anything. If I train tired my skills aren't going to decrease because I have more energy.

I don't see why you can't wrap your head around that idea of developing good technique while fatigued. Developing a technique while fatigued carries over to when you are fresh
developing a technique while fresh does NOT carry over to when you are fatigued
>>
>>750316
>I don't see why you can't wrap your head around that idea of developing good technique while fatigued. Developing a technique while fatigued carries over to when you are fresh

Not when you are doing it wrong in the first place.

There is a time and place for gut check workouts. That's not every single day.

>developing a technique while fresh does NOT carry over to when you are fatigued

You fall to your lowest level of training. It just so happens that your setting your lowest level low by using bad programming. Congratulations.

not just now, I have for a while. I teach 8 group classes a week, and do privates the rest of the time.

but the problem here with you is you are unenlightened, you're a hobbyist where as I am a professional, and you don't have any respect for people doing something other than the exact same thing you are doing.
>>
>>750297

This is just time-wasting from instructors who don't know how to teach and don't have a plan to fill the class.

"Okay faggots! Do a thousand pushups! Then, um, run fifteen laps around the dojo! I'll be in my office. Knock before you come in or you'll get an eyeful of DNA."

>>750299
The Seidokaikan Hombu turns out more fighters than you'll ever meet and we never did anything like this.

>>750316
We also never had somebody so full of himself he called himself a shihan. You sure you don't do Bujinkan?
>>
>>750357
>don't have a plan to fill the class
we aren't filling up a 1 hour class with exercise, we are running 3+ hour classes with exercises included

he doesn't call himself that, it's a given title that he earned, an when you earn your red belt people might call you that too

Sure thing friend.

I've trained and competed full time in different combat sports, from wrestling to MMA.

And I've gotten any training that wasn't specifically wrestling from pro fighters.

But no, you're right.

The best thing is to constantly exhaust yourself before you get to technical training, every workout should be a gut check workout. Programming is for chumps.

>not just now, I have for a while.

Also lol because the entire thread you've been talking about how your Goju krotty is the ultimate because you don't train for competition, you train "real fighting".
>>
>>750375
you seem to be confused, my own training is different from the gym I work at.

I am not afraid to fight anyone in any format, rules are not, my desire or lack there of to take part in your competition is unimportant. I have no interest in winning a belt in someones fighting league, I already know I'm the baddest man in the room when I step out.
The whole idea of becoming champion to me seems to be bred from insecurity in ones own skills. I know I'll win, therefore I don't need to prove it to myself
>>
>>750364

I'll give you the laundry list. Some of these overlap so don't try to just add them up. They all fit into a twenty year period.

Around 14 years Isshinryu, 2nd dan. George Dillman-affiliated. Bullshit.

About two years ITF-style Taekwondo. Bullshit.

Around 2 years Ed Parker-style Kenpo. Bullshit.

A little under a year of judo and aikido. Not for me.

About a year of Shotokan. Bullshit.

A year and a half of capoeira. A++, would play again, even if bullshit.

Two years of Wushu. Fun, bullshit, nobody imagined he was a badass though.

I've taken classes in sambo, kendo, shinkendo, silat, and other shit that isn't coming to mind at the moment. No rank in any of those, but I got a feel for them.

Four years of Seidokaikan at the hombu in Osaka. Look it up on wikipedia. Switch the language to Japanese. That photo is the dojo. Training floor is up top, weight room and bathrooms are on the first floor. K-1 ring is in the basement. It's the only worthwhile training I've received for any useful length of time.

I've done everything wrong for a long-ass time and completely ruined any talent I might have ever had with bullshit training. I'm lanky and long-legged and get utterly fucked by any kind of grappler. I'm flexible, but I have a lot of old injuries slowing me down. I can also take a lot of hits and keep moving forward, and at this point adrenaline dumps aren't a problem. I know what I know, and it isn't much. I've been around this motherfucker a while though.

I'm currently living in Asheville, North Carolina with no plans to return to Japan any time soon, and wonder where >>750369 lives. He's right I'm nobody though.

The point is not if he really fought 250 people, the point is that he was a capable fighter, recognised by many badass fighters (i.e. Kimura or countless knockdown karateka).

If you really are interested in the specific details:

>http://seinenkai.com/articles/noble/noble-oyama.html


>>750225

I'm not an expert on Sosai Oyama's biography, but historically many extraordinary fighters created their own styles. That doens't necessarily mean their style was better than the one they learned, it was just their specific idea about how a good style should look like, this and "political issues". That's also why there are so many Kyokushin offshoots.


>>750235

I agree with you, Karateka shouldn't look down at each other. In Kyokushin every Dojo trains differnt (Kata/Kumite? How hard? Punches to the head? Grappling basics?) and I think it's the same for every Karate style out there. I wouldn't be surprised to find a Shotokan Dojo out there that trains full contact.


>>750284

> isn't because of body conditioning

I don't know, without body conditioning Kyokushin would look quite differnt. It's definately one of the foundations for actual fighting (within our style).


>>750289

>1. You shouldn't be absolutely fucking exhausted when you're trying to get down range, timing, rhythm, footwork, and defense.

But in our Dojo it's pretty similar, people are maybe at 40% of their power before we start sparring. That helps a lot to form the "Osu"-spirit: go to your limits, get out of your comfort zone THEN look how much you can still keep going. It's better to be able to throw powerful kicks htat are not 100% accurate when you are almost done, then to throw technically beautiful kicks when you just came out of bed..
It also is great for building up stamina.

Of course we also have a hard workout at the end of the class to zap the last ressources.

>You can get your conditioning WHILE sparring and rolling.

Conditioning is differnt than eating kicks/punches in sparring.

So how many successful fighters has your place produced?

And how often are you doing gut check workouts?

Because if the answer is "every workout", congratulations, you have shitty programming.

Of course I assume you're probably training 2-3 times a week for an hour at a time. I'm coming from a background of training 5-6 days a week 3-5 hours a day, not counting running and lifting on my own.

I worked full time at the post office and still managed to train 5+ days a week for 3-5 hours a day, not including my own conditioning and lifting.

It's entirely possible to work full time and still train.

It's just he's not actually doing, he's just making shit up. It's obvious because he doesn't understand that what he's saying is shit tier programming for any fighter and is the epitome of strip mall Krotty "let's make up a bunch of shit because we have time to fill and don't know how to train anyone" crossfit thinking.

you keep going back to this idea of contests where your goal is to score points and not really hurt anyone.

>the moves and techniques they do are all good
I never said they weren't, I respect the skills everyone brings. I am saying the competition is unappealing
there is in fact nothing wrong with grappling only contests or striking only contests, but when you omit important techniques the contest to me seems pointless. who cares how many body shots someone can take while leaving their head all but exposed?
Allow head hunting and you have not only change the game, but given the practitioners a much more realistic look into what a fight is actually like

We're all bleeding after you cut us with that edge, buddy. I've met a hundred guys who talk like you, and they are all universally fuckheads and fantasists. Your name isn't Phil Elmore by any chance is it?

>>750801
It's been said here before, but there is no lack of venues for people who want to put on gloves and punch each other in the head. Go do any variant of kickboxing or boxing you like. Kyokushin took away the head punching so they didn't have the use gloves. I for one am glad that there's one group of people doing that.

There's no one answer to "what a fight is really like." Training is an abstraction, and compromises are made for the sake of staying relatively uninjured long enough to get good at something, because what you can't do is what you keep claiming that you're doing, which is just full on fight like you're locked in a cell with three lifers on PCP. You can do it once or twice maybe, but that can't be your training method because you're going to be crippled or dead long before you get in enough ring hours to accumulate any skill.

>>750388
So you're a professional at...what, exactly? Kill-or-be-killed fighting? Who have you killed? Do you go out and fight crime? Are you Dexter? No? Then how do we or you know you're any good? You haven't gotten killed yet? Neither has anyone else on this board. I guess we're all already masters. My preferred method of self defense is to be a white collar white guy who lives in low crime areas in first world countries and keeps his door locked at night anyway. It's super effective.

>>750722
>>750765
This has been talked to death on this board and elsewhere already. The "art" part of "martial arts" was never intended to have all the baggage hung on it that 20th century Westerners with a penchant for Orientalism have attached to it. Martial arts are accumulated methods of engaging in violence. Any character development you might experience while doing them is incidental.
>>
>>750818
>Any character development you might experience while doing them is incidental.
this is observably incorrect. The reason different styles of karate exist (of which there are only 4 officially recognized and kyokushin is not one of them) is because of the philosophy attached.
Chojun Miyagi wrote "the ultimate aim of karate-do was to build character, conquer human misery, and find spiritual freedom"
I will listen to the man who created karate when it comes to what karate is all about
>>
>>750823

Oh for fuck's sake. You're going to declare kyokushin to not be karate?
>>
>>750801
>head hunting
>much more realistic look into what a fight is actually like
It's a much more realistic look into what two people who don't know how to fight do when they try to hurt each other.
It's just haymakers aimed at the head until someone drops.
It's just shitty, unskilled fighting.
>>
>>750827
nah, it is. Any unarmed combat is technically karate. But for the sake of discussing intent and what it stands for, no it doesn't count when you talk about the origins of karate philosophy
>>
>>750829
>Any unarmed combat is technically karate.
So I can take the jab and cross, front snap kick, roundhouse kick, side kick, uchi mata, and rear naked choke, put it into my own art, and then teach it as "Karate"?
>>
>>750830
technically yes, karate literally means empty handed. Any non-weapon system of fighting can be considered karate if you want to get literal.
>>
>>750848
>if you want to get literal.
Do people actually go literal, though? Are there people selling stuff like that as "Karate"?
>>
>>750818
>This has been talked to death on this board and elsewhere already.

Yes, this has been talked to death, that hardly means its been settled to my satisfaction. I will agree with you about 20th century westerners. But I can find quotes of the founders of modern systems like karate and kendo, as well as quotes from the edo period and even before talking about character development and how its central to what they were doing. That is not to say they didn't care about the "martial" aspect, but there was a cultural context were the idea of a "path" was widely related to a number of disciplines, marital arts included, were one could use steadfast devotion to an art as a means of enlightenment, or in later years self development.

Now we can debate how effective punching and throwing people is for character development, but that's another conversation
>>
>>750849
probably. Karate is marketable, everybody knows what it is. It's like brazilian jiujitsu using the word jujitsu, I don't know what the portuguese word for wrestling is but they could have used that.
>>
>>750855

You'll sadly find a lot of tkd classes marketed as karate or "Korean karate."

>>750850

It's as effective as football or golf or any other activity that takes practice and dedication to get good. No more so though.

I will disagree with this on the basis that martial arts training is the only thing I can think of where diligently inflicting self harm is part of the practice. I don't mean in the sense that you should work through the pain, but more so the pain being the whole point.

I get that practicing those you will get your lumps, but I don't know about having players stand there while someone lays into them with a stick on the back of the legs and thighs or punches them in the gut, or slaps an open hand against their bare skin during training.
>>
>>750869

Those are dumb things to do in martial arts training too. What is the carryover to fighting from that? Getting hit hard in sparring is enough for you to learn to take a hit.
>>
>>750870
not really, you need to actively deaden your nerves so its not a matter of taking the hit, its that you barely even feel the hit after a while. even in MMA its pretty standard practice to body condition like that, like doing sit ups while someone stands over you dropping a med ball on your belly.
>>
>>750872
>this is what dancers actually believe
>>
>>750872
>doing sit ups while someone stands over you dropping a med ball on your belly.

Also a dumb practice. The nerve damage thing is a myth anyway. You're just getting used to it. The sensitivity comes right back if you stop doing it for a while.

Just spar hard on a regular basis and you'll learn to keep fighting after getting hit. Or I guess stand there while somebody hits you with a stick and you'll learn to pretend you're in boot camp or whatever.

Can you at least accept that it's not going to have the value of getting hit in sparring because you're in a completely different headspace? Standing there with your instructor about to hit you and you know it's coming and you know that all you're expected to do is take it has little similarity to being in the middle of a match, taking a hit you didn't see coming, and having to continue to put together a coherent offense and defense afterward.

I think kata is really misunderstood by a lot of people and that has a lot to do with shitty schools and dance contests

boxing for example has kata, kata is a blanket term for technique practice. So while someone learning boxing will learn a combination, and practice that combination in front of a mirror to watch their technique, then work it on the pads with someone, while a boxer will consider shadow boxing and pad work to be two different things they are both considered kata.

Kata is specifically a preset pattern that goes way beyond a combination.
>>
>>750897
>Nah homie, that's Kihon

Not him, but twhile I would agree there are certain things that distinguish kata from being merely a set pattern, they are untimely a type of pattern practice, something found in most athletic activities.

I'm not the most qualified to opine on karate kata in particular, but most kata tend to be alot of kihon chained together in a way someone decided made sense. The things that make it a kata, as opposed to a drill are added on top of that
>>
>>750897
which is meant to program movement, then you do it against someone that is complying with you to get used to making contact, then you do it against someone who is resisting.
when someone learns kata and just continues to practice kata by themselves in an open room they aren't doing it correctly.

the purpose of kata has never been something you emulate exactly in a fight. the idea is to learn transitions between techniques so you can apply them as a reflexively where applicable.

Mind that I'm not saying that the training methods I described are necessarily the best or the only ones which could work. But for some people they do work. So maybe different paths may lead to the same goal?

>>750903

Zero aliveness, zero timing. You aren't responding to anything. Kata are worthless.

If people fought and it looked anything like the kata you'd have a point but karate guys spar with stances, techniques, and footwork that dont resemble kata at all.
>>
>>750904

I think you build character from joining groups of people who share your goals and attempting to do things that take discipline. Martial arts do those things for you, but there's nothing special about training in martial arts when it comes to making you a better person.

You'd end up experiencing the same personal growth joining a soccer team or going for eagle scout or being really active in your church. Martial arts gets you up and out of the house, gets you moving, helps you meet people, and inspires you to sacrifice time you would have spent watching tv and instead spend it pursuing a goal. So would joining a band.

What I don't believe, and I really don't care what Miyagi or Ueshiba said their intent was, is that having some pasty twat in pajamas standing in front of you spouting gibberish about indomitable spirit or whatever adds additional benefit. The problem is the schools that really emphasize the "spiritual" stuff usually skimp on the hard work and the important character-building experience of losing.

In fact, I think martial arts training may be worse for your character. Look at the guy a few of us have been arguing with in this thread. Do you think he's pleasant to be around with his head full of edgy fantasies about how deadly he is? Wouldn't you rather have a beer with one of us old jocks? We'll tell you some funny stories about people we used to play krotty with. Isn't that better than "If you want to learn how to kill a man, come find me?"

>What are "gut check workouts"?
Where you are going balls to the wall 100% and doing conditioning (again not body conditioning) exercises interspersed with sparring, mitt work, bag work etc.

>I train in Kyokushin 2 times a week, but most guys (including me) cross train in some style.

Which is what, another day a week an hour a workout?

That's my point. When you aren't getting a large volume of training you don't realize that the programming is bad, because it's usually covered up by pointless exercise.

A gut check workout has a very important place in a training program, but it's not every day. Especially when you start getting closer to a fight, tournaments etc.

>>
>>751012

No, I didn't. Your point about kihon doesn't apply to kata since it's not done with contact or resistance. The kata breaks down and you're doing something else then. You do things reflexively that you've practiced with aliveness.

Nobody fights with anything from kata. If you claim otherwise, throw up some videos. If you're claiming that they don't spar with kata sequences but do fight with them "on the street," then you're arguing that sparring has no carryover to fighting, in which case sparring is the practice that should be discontinued, because either you fight like you spar or you fight like you do kata. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY spars like he does kata.

Kata is a weird sideline activity that has no bearing on learning to fight.

start at 1 hour 9 minutes, the kata section is a few minutes long and they address what kata is for, as well as what it has turned into thanks to bad schools and hwaito piggus in the west.

I think you will see it is a bit different from what your idea of kata is

>there is nothing wrong with training hard every time you train

There's a major difference between training hard and training stupid.

And what you're doing (if you aren't just trolling) is training stupid.

And you don't realize it because you're covering up bad programming with less volume filled with pointless exercise.

>>751102
>I've been a state licensed athletic trainer since 2008

Are you just going to keep making shit up whenever you get called on saying stupid shit?

First it was Goju is the ultimate real fighting, and you train with hard core throat punches and eye gouges.

Then it was you work at a fight gym full time and train actual fighters (even though that isn't "real fighting" according to your preceding posts).

Now you're a "certified personal trainer" which means absolutely jack fucking shit. It's like saying you have a degree in business management from Pheonix University Online.


Well how about this, I'm the clone of Mark Rippetoe and Cus D'Amato, personal trainers hate me, I'm fucking hot bitches and basically you're fucking stupid.
>>
>>751151
you can make a diet for yourself, but not for others. If you are a PT and you do something so simple as saying "Dont eat that its not good for you" you are breaking the law by offering professional advice beyond your professional scope. Even medical doctors can't technically give you diet advice unless its something the specialize in.
>>751165
only minimally, kata isn't necessarily choreographed, it is largely freestyle for you to practice flowing on your own like shadow boxing. the choreographed portion of kata is meant to help you get used to moving before you start making it up on your own, think of it as training wheels until your technique is good. even that goes no further than what a boxer would do practicing their jab cross hook combo against an invisible opponent to get used to the motion. Karate will just have more techniques involved.
did you watch the video? the first part of kata was about conditioning and breath control, the second part was practicing the moves in the air (and was the smallest part) and the 3rd part was practicing with a person and doing combination drills. Again exactly the same as a boxing coach saying "give me a 1,2, duck, 3,3" while he stands there with his gloves up to get you used to targeting properly.

choreographed group dance is a new thing invented by bad schools to avoid actually teaching students

>PTs aren't professionals
exactly, a personal trainer is a low level meaningless certification that looks good to fat people that have no idea about the industry. Giving exercise tips is an unregulated industry, but diet and supplements require specialized training and licensing to talk about in a professional capacity.
as a trainer you are not allowed to say "apples are good for you, eat apples" you are operating beyond your scope and thats on the same tier as a PT diagnosing you with heart disease because your blood pressure was high.

lets say I am a PT and I take someones blood pressure and I see It's 130 over 90. I can not say to someone "you have high blood pressure" because that's a diagnosis. What I can do is choose my words very carefully and say "your blood pressure is high right now, do you have a history of high blood pressure?" if the answer is yes, then its fine you found the problem, if the answer is no you say "if it gets this high frequently I would suggest having a doctor take a look" I didn't make a diagnosis, I escalated the issue with careful word choices and operated within my scope.

back to diet it's the same way. If someone wants to trim up a little, you can not say "you should eat chicken because it's low in fat and high in protein" it is not within your scope to make that assertion. What can can however say is "I like to each chicken because it's low in fat and high in protein"
I never said YOU should do something, I told you what I do and from there you can make your own decision.

>>
>>751206

If you're not licensed you don't have a scope, so everything you do is outside your scope.
>>
>>751211
that's right. And as regular people having casual conversation this doesn't matter, but when you are a PT there is a professional client relationship and they are listening to what you say as though you do have a scope or authority to talk about certain things.

I just want to follow up with some examples that come to mind for why it is this way
a true story is once a trainer for crunch killed a 24 year old girl because he gave her a pre-workout supplement that was high in caffeine before putting her on a treadmill. she had a heart arrhythmia and had a heart attack.

something that hasn't happened to my knowledge but potentially could is say you told someone they should eat bananas because they have a lot of vitamins. Well unfortunately for both of you, you didn't know they had kidney disease and were living with suppressed kidney function. Your suggestion to eat bananas caused them to go into a coma from potassium toxicity.
Now if this was a casual conversation at a bar or something you are not responsible, but as a PT you gave them professional advice which they paid you money for and therefore are responsible, as you operated outside of scope.
>>
>>751179

So what you're saying is you went ahead and decided to call yakusoku kumite and a bunch of other shit "kata," therefore kata have value. Except that yakusoku kumite is also compliant crap with no aliveness.

You know that when everybody here except for the judo players says "kata" he means this shit right here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=00a6qsRdswU

Kata have rigid, old choreography and are done in groups or solo to weird, stilted cadences for endless repetitions. They contain silly kihon in silly stances with silly footwork. Anybody who has signed up for karate or taekwondo or kung fu classes knows what a form is. You're moving the goalposts.

To suggest that a (kick)boxer's shadowboxing is "kata" is just silly, unless you know of some boxing gym that's telling people to do fifty-punch shadowboxing sets that look exactly the same every time.
>>
>>751218
>compliant crap
I don't know why compliance in training is a bad thing. Imagine you are a white belt at your first bjj class, your instructor shows you a triangle choke "ok, now you try to do it to me, except I'm not going to just let you so you have to fight me for it"
how silly does that sound? you would never learn anything. working with a compliant partner at first is the only way you will learn the way a technique is supposed to feel and then after you are comfortable with doing it compliantly you do it live.

and I will tell you this as well. I have been doing karate for 14 years and in that time have learned exactly 2 choreographed kata. Those two kata between them contain all of our moves and stances. once you can do those two, you know all the moves, and can then freestyle.

That video is silly, but there is a reason shotokan is relegated to point fighting. They don't do any real training as far as I can tell
>>
>>751226

Great. Your training is so different from what 99% of us are going to encounter in karate, including in gojuryu, that you're not talking about the same thing. So when somebody says "kata are a waste of time," you can do a little "not all kata" if you want, but arguing the point has no merit because you don't have experience with it.

You know we're not talking about introducing techniques compliantly. We're talking about all compliance all day. Like yakusoku kumite always are.

Shotokan is one of if not the most popular karate style in the world. I agree with you it's not "real" training, but you can' t just handwave it away. It's exactly what people picture if you say "karate" in a conversation.
>>
>>751238
I am not here to defend shitty training, but things should not be called shitty because people use them improperly.
I was sparring with someone that did shotokan recently, and you know what happened? he hit me right in the gut, and then you know what happened? He stepped back, put his hands up, and apologized. and I was a little confused because I guess to him it was a very hard punch, but to me I barely even felt it and didn't mind at all. And then to apologize for hitting someone during sparring is just weird to me.

I think what I'm trying to say here is hate the player not the game. We are two people using karate and he was a fast pussy that was super good at hopping around and tapping people gingerly on the tummy, and I'm a tank.

like I said earlier though, goju is a very small club with a shallow lineage. Most people use the name without permission.
>>
>>751246

No true goju ryu.

Chunners do the same thing you're doing. If it's good it's wing chun if it's bad they're imposters from the wrong lineage. Nobody buys it from them either.

Relating way back to the beginning of the thread, if you know nothing but the name on the door, if the school is goju ryu it probably sucks and you shouldn't prefer it to kyokushin.

So you are you saying you usually train with 70% intensity?

>Which is what, another day a week an hour a workout?

In my country it's considered impolite to just ask question without giving answers. I told you about my dojo, how about you tell something about yours, since you seem to look down on our training methods?

But for you interest, I also train Judo and have one day doing free training (jogging, body weight and so on).


>When you aren't getting a large volume of training you don't realize that the programming is bad

You mean like a computer? Are you a programmer?


>because it's usually covered up by pointless exercise

So full contact sparring is pointless? I just don't understand what you are trying to tell me.

I mean you want to train low intensity, but 6 days a week, why not. But why this moral high ground?

I think it's common sense that you don't train 100% right before tournaments.

>>751272
>shadow boxing actually looks like fighting
I don't think it looks too real when most people shadow boxing lazily keep their punches too tight and flop their wrists around with their hands open, professionals included. That is how most people shadow box. where as the whole point of kata is to sharpen a technique.
Tell me, what is the difference between you deciding to practice 1,2,3 in the air on your own and an instructor telling you to do so?
don't answer that, the answer is nothing.

your bias about what kata is and should be is showing. I maintain that kata is something all fighters do whether they know it or not, they just call it something different.
>>
>>751326
What you're doing is making the definition of Kata so broad (much more broad than anyone else would) that absolutely anything could be Kata.

According to how you're applying the term Kata, prepping food for a recipe is Kata, taking measurements before you cut some 2x4s for a ramp is Kata etc.

>>751317
>I still have no clue what you are talking about..
>So you are you saying you usually train with 70% intensity?

No, I'm saying doing exhaustive exercise with no other point than to exhaust you all the time is shitty programming.

>how about you tell something about yours

The place I trained at until I recently (this August) moved for school was a fight gym ran by a retired pro kick boxer who fought from the 70's until the 90's, who had trainers who were current or also retired pro fighters. I also trained at other gyms ran by retired pro fighters from the same time frame.

This was also after competing in wrestling in high school for four years varsity, competing at the state level tournament.

>So full contact sparring is pointless?
Now you're just being obtuse.
>>
>>751317
Also:

>You mean like a computer? Are you a programmer?

No. Programming is how you put together your training program.

That includes technical work (skill), strength work (lifting), and conditioning (cardio).
>>
>>751326

You're being disingenuous here.

If your nephew calls you on the phone and says, "Hey, Uncle Anon! I just got a silver medal in a kata competition!" You're not going to wonder whether he was up there getting beat on by a partner or hitting focus mitts. You know exactly what he's talking about and so do the rest of us.

>>751339
It reminds me of how every time we'd make fun of chi the Sinaboos on this board used to try to say, "Chi just means breathing! You're not trying to say you don't believe in air, are you?" Or when they'd argue that since "kung fu" just means "skill," then everything you do is kung fu, therefore boxers do kung fu, therefore kung fu works. No, wait. He's not reminding me of that. He's doing exactly that.
>>
>>751433
of course, and I would be very disappointed because kata isnt something you should be able to have a competition for. If you are judging kata in a competition you are doing it wrong

>>

>doing exhaustive exercise with no other point than to exhaust you all the time is shitty programming.

Why is this so difficult to understand?
Let me break it down for you:

You do a lot pushups = more muscles = better punching power.
You do body conditioning every session = muscles get used to impact = better protection in fighting.
You get exhausted and can still go for some rounds of sparring = more stamina and strong willpower = going the extra mile in actual fighting.


>The place I trained at

So you don't even train Karate?

Of course you don't necessarily need intense body conditioning for fighting. But if you are planning to fight Kyokushin tournaments, you'll fight bare knuckle (at least at higher grades) which requires intense training in taking punches, which you have to build up over some time. Otherwise your fights will be rather short - either because you are such a hotshot that you don't get hit at all or because you get a fist in the stomach and it's game over.


>This was also after competing in wrestling in high school for four years varsity, competing at the state level tournament.

That's cool, but not really important for this discussion here.


>Now you're just being obtuse.

>>752472
>Why is this so difficult to understand?
>Let me break it down for you:

>A bunch of broscience

>So you don't even train Karate?

Actually I trained Kyokushin for a few months in addition to the few years I trained to actually fight. The two guys who taught me how to fight both have Karate backgrounds (Chito Ryu, Yoshukai) and my striking has a strong Full Contact Karate influence because that's when they fought (70's to 90's before they both retired).


>either because you are such a hotshot that you don't get hit at all or because you get a fist in the stomach and it's game over.

Lol nah homie, but I bet you think you can "kill your nerves" in body conditioning. I also like how you assume I've never done body conditioning.

I think there's a problem of terminology here, because when I talk about conditioning in general I'm not talking about body conditioning, I'm talking about cardio and lifting (which is what 99% of people mean when they say conditioning).

>That's cool, but not really important for this discussion here.

My point was that I've trained and competed full time for more than a few years in different rule sets.

Not just three times a week for an hour or two a day.

>Actually I trained Kyokushin for a few months

The point is not if you trained in KK, the question is if you actually competed under KK rules. If you didn't spend a certain amount of time getting used to bare knuckle punches, your fight will look like this:

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

And there fore we you train for this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFIcLG8ValY


>I bet you think you can "kill your nerves" in body conditioning

This has nothing to do with "killing nerves", it has to do with getting used to strikes. It's a certain kind of muscles you don't get from doing situps all day. Muscle memory =/= muscles, otherwise every soccer captain would automatically be a Muay Thai champ..

You may want to look at this video from 0:30 to 0:40, you see how he just ignores the kicks and punches?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fMRRiBCSJA

Of course the Muay Thai guy has more techniques up his sleeve, this is not a Style vs. Style bashing here. But it would be ridiculous to say that body conditioning had no use.

Let's just keep it simple and stupid:
winning a fight = attacking + defending = dealing damage that is too much for the other guy to handle + withstanding the damage of the other person

Of course proper techqnique is important, guarding your head is important and so on..
But if I am capable to just "ignore" your body shots and lowkicks, it gives me:
-a psychological advantage
-a tactical advantage (you have less options to actually do damage, I have less points to protect)
-a fighting advantage (if I fail to block in time, I don't go down, but can keep on fighting)


> I'm talking about cardio and lifting (which is what 99% of people mean when they say conditioning).

This thread is explicitly about Kyokushin Karate, so I don't care what "99% of people mean".


>My point was that I've trained and competed full time for more than a few years in different rule sets.

Nah cock gobbler, this thread was about Kyokushin v Goju and why 99% of Goju is shit and KK is more than likely to be a good place to train.

And when I started talking about conditioning it was in reference to general training programming.

It's like you're looking for something to argue about.

people in my school are perfectly free to compete whenever they want. We don't work towards competition as a school though. My teacher will never sign us up as a team to go to a competition, he'll never bring it up, but if you want to fight he will be in your corner with you.

he will even go with you if you want to go to a pajama dance point tournament, but you will be under a specific set of instructions the entire time. Those tournaments are crooked, and no contest left in the hands of judges is a true test of skills of any kind. therefore if it seems like the judges are showing an unfair bias to the other player he will signal to you and at that point you are to end the fight by knocking out the other person. If you are going to lose you lose on your own terms by beating the other person.

That's pretty rude. You know, in western philosophy there's this concept, called "opinion". You can go on to another concept, called "discussion", which usually works liek that:

if you think you are so fast you will never get hit you are full of shit and missing the point about the body conditioning, which is to prepare for the inevitability of getting hit. I am fine with getting hit. Sometimes you must let your opponent get inside so you can impose yourself upon them . if you do judo I would expect you to understand that concept well.

No, no, no. I'm doing Judo and I'm the Kyo guy, not the point sparring fighter for fuck's sake. I don't think the the Goju Ryu does Judo.

Maybe.. Could we.. could we just start this thread again and stop the confusing discussion?
>>
>>753894
there is jujitsu in goju, it's what the ju stands for. Not as much as in judo obviously but maybe almost half as many, and ground fighting. arm bars, chokes, triangles, all that kind of stuff. Submission over position though. You would have to be some kind of retard to actually choose to pull guard if you are standing, that's only appropriate if you ended up on your back.
>>
>>753912

Interesting.

I always thought that it's a shame that there is no grappling (in terms of locks, takedowns..) in many Kyokushin branches. AFAIK there are some offshoots who teach it, though.

Especially since KK founded by a high Dan Judoka and former Boxer I always thought that Boxing and Judo is somehow mandatory for KK.

The advantage of training "pure" Judo is of course that it's sparring is completely centered about the grappling aspect. But on the other side this also mean you have to figure out the trainsitions from Striking/Kicking to grappling yourself. So I'll definately have to get some "MMA lessons" at a striking gym later on to build it all up to a complete fighting style which works through all distances. A style like Goju Ryu has some advantages here since they give you at the very least the theory of when you can apply throws and trips.
>>
>>753912

"ju" just means "soft." It's not an abbreviation for jujutsu.

Do you spar it with aliveness?

When King Dudebro asked Miyagi what his style was called, he opened up the Bubishi and found a passage talking about the concept of Hard & Soft, so that's what he named his karate.

>A style like Goju Ryu has some advantages here since they give you at the very least the theory of when you can apply throws and trips.
Can confirm, at least half of the techniques I've learned in Goju involve grabbing and sweeping or throwing.

Same question to you then: when you say half the style is grappling, what does that entail? Hell, even taekwondo pays lip service to having all kinds of hold breaks and joint locks but when it is time to spar they throw all of that out and turn into shitty kickboxers.

Are you grabbing, sweeping, and throwing your sparring partners on a regular basis?
>>
>>754266

>but when it is time to spar they throw all of that out and turn into shitty kickboxers.

I heard a lot of stories that the TKD grappling worked surprisingly well against untrained opponents. We probably all agree that you won't beat a pure grappler with that, but it seems to me it's enough to hold your own or "surprise throw" someone. Then again, I never did TKD, it's just what I heard by other guys.


Mind that many traditional martial arts were once designed as complete fighting systems, i.e. think about the "judo chops" for dan grades (lel).

responding to
>>754266
>what does that entail?
Honestly, our teacher never really preached the glories of grappling to us, so I've always thought of it as striking with supplements. We rarely go to the ground and have only done a few judo-esque throws.
Example #1
>block punch
>grab arm/shoulder
>pull down and knee to ribs
Example #2
>block punch
>strike with elbows to close distance
>grab shoulder/collar and sweep
Also we do arm-bars quite a bit as well as arm/hip throws and occasionally some aikijutsu.

>but when it is time to spar
Beginner students usually turn into shitty kickboxers. Sweeps, grabs, armbars and headlocks are used with increasing frequency with rank, becoming dominant over strikes at around 3rd kyu.

>>754360
>So much for "I totally wasn't the same Goju guy!"

they are just ignorant to what real martial arts is about. Foolishly thinking wide spread = better when the reality for kyo being more wide spread is because it's easier.

you know how many people come in saying they want to learn something real. "I dont want any fluff, give me the real thing" and 9/10 guys can't take it because the training is too difficult. They can't handle the intensity of the work outs, they can't handle the body conditioning, can't handle getting hit.

they can go have fun fluffing each others cocks with poofy boxing gloves or only doing body shots. I'll be over here actually fighting.

Lol.

Kyo is not more widespread than Goju, or any other Krotty for that matter, in the US.

The reason why Kyo is thought of as the best Krotty alternative is because they actually fight.

Goju is role playing and RBSD faggotry to the max.

>>
>>754380

So goju is striking with supplementary grappling, but then you contradict that and say that it is mostly grappling after sankyu, which is what? Green? Idk how many belts you have.

Any video of this mostly grappling high level goju sparring?
>>
>>754473
goju is hard and soft, grappling isn't supplementary, its essential but secondary.
goju striking is built on counter punching, you create your opening with strikes, and grappling is meant to be your fight ender by putting someone down with a throw or a sweep and punting their head or stomping on their throat, or a standing clinch where you lay into them with knees.
goju doesn't* go to the ground, the practitioner stays standing and puts the other one down.
"rolling" would be supplementary since that would be more focused on defensive ground fighting, which is not a place you ever ideally want to go

*sacrificial throws like tomoe nage and scissor sweeps are part of goju technique, but not part of the preferred methodology because it leaves you vulnerable to counter measures from another opponent. working from guard and mount are taught and practiced, but going there is not the goal. I don't want to mount you, I want to stay standing entirely.
>>754459
>Walk us through what you do when "actually fighting."
you don't think that's a little ignorant of a question? fights are completely contextual.
if you throw a punch I may step outside and pop you on the jaw, or stay inside with a parry, counter punch and grab a clinch, proceed to drop knees. or if your leg is in a good spot, sweep it out, or if you try to hug up use a hip throw.
if you throw a thrust kick I may step out and parry to the outside so I can get at your back, pop you in the back of the head or if its open jump right to your back and sink in a choke.

what I'm not going to do is stand there and box with you. The fight is dynamic, you don't plan it out ahead of time, my hands and more importantly my defensive movements will create openings and when I see one I take it as it appears.

Ehem. A thread a 4chin proves nothing.

I still think Kyokushin is unmatched in terms of actual kicking and body punches, because that's what we do 24/7.

When you look at hybtrid styles like "Kudo" you often notice how their kicks are more sloppy in comparison to pure KK tournaments where you aim for a KO or a strik heavy enough to end the fight.

But I do admit that your sparring looks decent and thos takesdowns are not bad. Also it's silly to think about about martial arts in terms of "who's the best", because a decent martial will allow you to grow to your full potential, the rest depends on the fighter.

How come none of these guys were blinded, or crippled? Isn't this the place where we go to learn to kill guy? I never even saw a single knee explosion.

The sparring was typical patty-cake shit, the 'takedowns' and the 'takedown defenses' were essentially non-existent.

Just train Kyokushin, or one of the other legit styles.

This so fucking hard.

After all the shit talking I expected some hard core dick smashing and eye poking.

Buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut like normal, it's just shitty slap boxing and, like everyone who has never actually been in a fight in OR out of the ring, the faggots don't realize that they look like shit. In their heads they think they are like a reenactment of Blood Sport or Dragon Ball Z.

And that's what leads to conversations like this.
>>
>>754606
>I still think Kyokushin is unmatched in terms of actual kicking and body punches, because that's what we do 24/7
which is part of the problem, it's all you do. you don't head hunt so you don't defend your head effectively, and you don't use defensive foot work because apparently avoiding getting hit makes you look like a bitch and you are supposed to just take the hit and be a man about it.
know why you see so many head kicks connect in kyokushin? because they drop their hands and don't move.

>>754608
>How come none of these guys were blinded, or crippled?
because they weren't trying to blind and cripple each other. literally whatt you sound like If brazilian jiujitsu is so effective how come guys aren't getting their arms snapped off with arm bars during practice on a daily basis!!! that must mean they can't do it

I already have several times, nobody wanted to take my up on it and that's fine, nothing against them for it. I don't really want to fight anyone because that does nothing for me.
I'll go in there, maybe take a few lumps if someone is good (although unlikely considering what I know about the people around here), knock a guy around for a bit, and prove my point to a bunch of strangers on the internet.

everybody has their own reasons to fight, mine happens to be to deal with bullies and tough guys who talk shit and look down on others. Especially if someone is a supposed veteran that killed 50 men, fucked their wives, and has a bionic leg made of shrapnel and nazi blood.

take a look at what's happening here, a few of us come in and start talking about goju, and a meme spouting defense force who has never done it and is against anything remotely exotic bursts onto the scene and starts shit talking something they don't even do, and honestly have never even observed. fuck that.

And here comes the "No True Scotsman" again.

>>754693
>Is the Sabaki Challenge still a thing?

Yes.
>>
>>754663

>which is part of the problem, it's all you do.

My theory is that you can everything you learn comes at a cost. Like Muay Thai trains kicks, knees, ellbows and punches whereas boxing train only punching with the hands. That means two things: the Boxer is not familiar with defense against kicks. But it also means his punches will be twice as good as the punches of the Muay Thai.
Now if we look at Kyokushin vs. "integrated" styles it's the same: a Hapkido guy will probably have more techniques. But this also means that he won't even devellop a "knock out kick", because within his own ruleset it will be much more usefull to to kicks only as a minor tactical tool and start throws from there.

>you don't head hunt so you don't defend your head effectively

Which is obvious. Which is what everybody speaks about and why almost every Kyokushin guy I know cross trains in boxing or kickbxing at some point. Kyokushin is an amazing foundation for kickboxing, but it needs adjustments, yes.

>you don't use defensive foot work because apparently avoiding getting hit makes you look like a bitch

That's not true. We train a lot of defensive movements i.e. checking kicks. Body hardening takes you through one fight, but it doesn't take you through a whole tournament. We avoid to get hit but if the kick is half assed, we treat it as an half assed kick.

>because they drop their hands and don't move.

Let me guess: you watched a highlight reel and think that most kyokushin fights end with a KO kick to the head? But actually KO's are not that common, it's more common that the fighter with better actions wins or maybe that he managed to bring the other guy to his knees with a connecting kick or punch at the stomach.

>>
>>754663

You claimed that your style is where you go to learn to kill people. You have also, throughout this thread, claimed and heavily implied that your style was so hardcore that people are regularly injured, partially blinded, ko'd, etc. just from the average sparring sessions. You have also claimed that none of the people who train any other arts would be able to hack the brutal training regime you Goju Ryu types follow, and that most of us are at risk of permanent injury or death if we tried.

BUT, the only proof you can muster of all this deadliness consistently shows low-speed, patty-cake sparring, kata demonstrations and sloppy grappling defense.

Grandiose claims + lack of proof= people calling bs. That's not a hard thing to understand.

I'm not claiming that Judo will destroy any other style that stands against it, that a Judoka will accidentally murder someone in a sparring match, or that Judo training gives a person some unstoppable 'hardness'. You are claiming these things for Goju-Ryu, which is why people disbelieve you and question you.

>It's a regulatory body

Which means somewhere between Jack and Shit unless you're talking about gyms that they regulate.

The majority of Krotty in the US is strip mall Krotty. The era of Full Contact Karate has been over for awhile.

>It isn't a no true Scotsman argument.

He's claiming that the Goju that most people see isn't the "real Goju".

That's literally "No True Scotsman".


Also I forgot to ask, what gear/ruleset do you want to spar under?

Because I've fought under MMA, amateur kickboxing, and Kyo rules and have the gear for them (except Kyo which doesn't require anything).
>>
>>754939
first half of the month
>>754942
>what gear/ruleset do you want to spar under?
as far as gear goes, really that depends if you want it to be blood sport or to keep it friendly
I'm fine bare knuckle but I would recommend head gear because I like to throw elbows to the head, even 4oz gloves if that would make you want to throw to the head readily
I am personally a fan of modified stand up, take a page out of judo where you can use throws and take downs but if you jump on someone you have a time limit to sink in a submission. Just so it doesn't become a nuthug fest.
also I promise not to stab you in the eye


>>754922
>You claimed that your style is where you go to learn to kill people.

also truth except for the blinding part, that isn't common
>You have also claimed that none of the people who train any other arts would be able to hack the brutal training regime you Goju Ryu types follow
I'm not saying you can't do it, but you would certainly have to work your way up to it. Most people don't have it in them to truly suffer for something, in some that quality can be cultivated and in others they just don't have it.
we actually teach martial arts to anyone that comes through, but we don't give them belts. They can learn just fine, but they aren't going to be flying school colors for us.
it's always funny to me, people come in with an idea of what karate is all about and think just being fit and paying attention will get them through it. Eventually they always say "I want to learn the real deal stuff, no fooling around"
are you sure? They have a chance to back out now

>>
>>754980
Whatever you want to call it. Think about it from a business perspective: if 9/10ths of your customers never return, that usually means you stay in business by constantly drawing in a large body of new ones.
>>
>>754984
it's barely a business, what you would pay for karate is really just to pay the rent and utilities, or get new equipment. I used to pay around $140 every 2 months or so. And a once yearly fee of $60 to pay for insurance. It used to work like a tap where you could just keep taking classes and pay whenever you could, or in small payments when you had extra money. But people took advantage of that.

there is plenty of personal training and group classes like zumba and cardio kickboxing going on to make money for the place. The belted karate program is treated as something different. The space gets used for those other things so we can keep karate training costs low.
>>
>>754984
Hm, I always thought the McDojo formula was to churn out as many belts and stripes as possible to keep people coming and paying testing fees.

But then again I come from a small town and the idea of having enough new recruits to keep the doors open is incomprehensible to me.

Yes, it certainly is silly. Some of the sparring wasn't terrible, but it was just shitty kickboxing as was predicted earlier. Things like the throw at 0:41 ruin it though. That throw is pure fantasy. A school that teaches you to do that is a bad school that wastes your time. This means that at best you guys waste a lot of time punching rocks, doing katas, and dancing like aikido bunnies, and occasionally have time to beat on one another. God help you if you ever fight somebody who spends the same amount of time on the training floor but doesn't waste most of it.

So, anyway, props for posting video, I guess. If you're sparring as hard as the few seconds of sparring in the third video show you aren't complete shit. More of a wet fart, really.

>the one who declared punching rocks makes your bones denser and then fucked off when asked if there's any evidence of this?
now who's the one talking about things that never happened?

are you actually retarded? not to drag that mess into this thread since I already won that argument. but just how drinking water hydrates your body, so does bone heal back more densely after being damaged. I'm not about to start linking you to common knowledge. I Would expect you to at least have a grade school understanding of biology before you start a debate about it.

>so does bone heal back more densely after being damaged

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/19/health/19really.html?_r=0

>When a bone fractures, it begins the healing process by forming a callus at the fracture site, where calcium is deposited to aid rebuilding, said Dr. Terry D. Amaral, director of pediatric orthopedic surgery at Montefiore Medical Center in the Bronx. In most cases, a plaster cast is applied to protect the fracture site. But because there is no weight or pressure on the limb, it becomes weaker — except at the site of the callus, where calcium is being deposited.

“The area that’s healing is undergoing rapid mineralization, but because you can’t use it, the rest of the bone is demineralized,” Dr. Amaral said.

As a result, there may be a brief period in the healing process when the fracture site is stronger than the surrounding bone. But they later reach equal strength, and the fracture site is no more or less likely to break again. Dr. Amaral said that in studies in which healed bones were subjected to bending and twisting forces, the repaired bones were capable of breaking anywhere, including the fracture site. “They never comment that it’s stronger or weaker than the rest of the bone,” he said.
>>
>>755382
holy shit you are so fucking stupid it it has NEVER been a discussion about bone strength, its about hardness you retarded motherfucker
tensile strength and hardness are two different fucking things

furthermore, breaking your leg once and then testing it out is different from systematically training the area.
it isn't even up for debate that athletes have denser skeletons than regular people, and martial artists take this a step further by intentionally conditioning the bones even more.
>>
>>755386
>by intentionally conditioning the bones even more.

Yes, through lifting.

Not through punching rocks.
>>
>>755387
this may be hard for you to grasp, you know how push up and bench press are the same exercise? know how leg press and squats are the same exercise?
are you familiar with the concept of push pull?
kicking a bag is the same exercise as a leg raise with a cable attached, I have the weight loaded in a different place. So don't start talking about lifting because punching is the same exercise as pressing barbells from a bench.

lifting increases density because of stress it puts on the bone, now I will also intentionally put stress on the bone too. The difference is while conditioning I have the added benefit of toughening my skin, getting used to punching, and isolating areas you can't get to with weight lifting.

It hurts me a little how little you know about training but still think you can talk about it. you hurt me with your words, which is good because you sure as hell couldn't do it with your body.
>>
>>755386

Can you even explain the difference between tensile, compressive, and shear strength? In what units would you measure those?

Why do we care about hardness exactly?

Like I said, you didn't win that argument. You took a steaming dump in the thread and walked off without a courtesy flush.
>>
>>755390

None of what you just said is true.
>>
>>755392
this proves you don't know anything about training. this is basic shit, dude. Like, this is stuff so entry level you can't even get a pt cert without knowing it.
>>755391
>Can you even explain the difference between tensile, compressive, and shear strength? In what units would you measure those?
I'm not sure what you are asking for here. you would measure it by pounds of pressure they can take before breaking, which entirely isn't the point of the conditioning.

>Why do we care about hardness exactly?
your body is made of soft tissue, not armor plating. Would you rather get hit with a pvc pipe or a metal one? hardness matters when trying to cause soft tissue injury.

>Like I said, you didn't win that argument
I most certainly did
won when I said conditioning exist across many martial arts
won when I Said thai bags are used for conditioning the legs
and won when I explained why and the other guy started talking about tacos like a retard.

The difference is you're a troll and I've actually fought in and out of the ring.
>>
>>755407
ooh so scared. You're not the first guy that needs to be knocked down a peg, you wont be the last.
Tell me how many fights you have had? how many people have actually had to have paramedics called because of what you did to them?

what is the number of people you have truly incapacitated. I don't mean knocked them around and they gave up, I mean hurt them so bad they were laying on the ground groaning?
because I've lost count
>>
>>755409

How'd you get somebody to smuggle a computer into your cell? If you aren't claiming to be a LEO or at least a security worker you're obviously lying. If anyone had that many fights he'd be in custody just because cops are human beings too and would get tired of getting called about the same guy all the time.
>>
>>755414
because I know how the system works. I'm not a bully, that's the difference. I don't pick fights with people but I have no problem taking care of a guy acting like a douche or picking on someone else.

also fighting is not illegal and I don't execute people once they are down. if I ground and pounded someone it would be illegal, but if I let their body drop without following up there are no laws being broken. as long as they stay down, I don't continue to punish them.

that's really what it's all about, punishment. How can we live in a civilized society with douches walking around picking on people? I just do what their parents should have done.

Not only are you too retarded for /asp/, you're staking a claim as being too retarded for /fit/, too. Amazing.

>>755409

How many have you sent to the paramedics? How many have you truly incapacitated? You keep making these claims, but when we ask you to back them up, you give us shtty teenage kata videos.

>>755421

Holy shit, now you're the Punisher. Okay Sensei Castle, can you link us to a newspaper story detailing some of these near execution body drops? If you're crippling people on the regular, at least one should have made the news by now.

No. No, you don't. You imagine things. You need a new board to spam.

there are 44 murders a day in the US. You think anybody cares enough to report about some scraps with an asshole getting his shit kicked?

Yep. Only the absolute worst crime on the books gets police attention. That's why there are a million guys in prison in America. Because all one million are murderers.

what part about fighting isn't against the law do you not get?

>>755667
>what part about fighting isn't against the law do you not get?

Actually it is.

Mutual combat doesn't exist in every state, and even in the ones it does exist it's at the discretion of responding LEOs whether what happened was mutual combat or not.

In the case of one person getting totally fucked up in the manner you talk about is going to get cuffs on you.

You're a fucking retard.

As far as how many fights: More than you.

For how many people had to be taken out by EMS: More than you.

Just stop pretending because all you're doing is getting my hopes up that you'll show in December.
>>
>>755667
Here's the problem: In >>755421, you said,

>I have no problem taking care of a guy acting like a douche

Which means you're willing to commit assault and battery, not engage in mutual combat.

I'm not going to bother looking it up, but earlier you claimed to live in New York, where:

"240.20 Disorderly conduct.
A person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause
public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk
thereof:
1. He engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening
behavior;"

Seriously. Nothing you have said in this thread at any point has even been plausible. You figure out those units for measuring bone strength yet?
>>

lets actually cut the shit talk for now anyway. While chest beating is fun it isn't productive. Nothing you say can scare me off so it's a done deal. What's the worst that happens, you rough me up a little?

I'm not trying to scare you off.

You're just unfamiliar with the history of "challenges" on /asp/.

>What's the worst that happens, you rough me up a little?

Actually this is what would happen if you actually showed up.

It's not a matter of trying to "scare you off", it's a matter of 1. I've worked with pro fighters and actually fought 2. you're not going to show up anyway. And because you weren't stupid enough to put a trip on you'll just stop posting about it and it will become another "one time some faggot challenged anons on /asp/ to a fight and didn't show up".

but that's what I mean, you're going to hit me a little and then what?
you really shouldn't underestimate people though, all I tried to do was share my perspective and now people want to fight me.
I have nothing to prove to the people here, I don't know any of you and you don't know me. but I'm doing this because you asked me to.
so I want you to be relaxed, don't think of this as someone with malice coming after you. This is simply a chance for education.

>all I tried to do was share my perspective and now people want to fight me.

Nigger, you issued a "challenge" after you said some stupid shit and anons laughed at you.

only because people decide to talk shit.
know that old saying? something the kids say about talking shit and as a result getting hit.

the people here have so much impotent rage, ya know?
>>
>>755870
>only because people decide to talk shit.

So which is it?

Did you not want to fight anyone and people wanted to fight you, or did you get pooper peeved when people made fun of stupid shit you said and you acted like a babby?


I'm betting my money on trolling.

I heard it wasn't that bad as far a traditional krotty goes. This thread just has one of those delusional faggots that can pop up for any martial art. It's too bad that some people in this thread will probably get a bias against goju because of this fag, not that I know if it's any good.
>>
>this faggot is baiting this hard and people want to bite and shitpost instead of treating him like wu and just brushing him off
I'd be disappointed, but I know I shouldn't expect better.
>>
>>755932

But isn't it interesting that only some martial arts breed delusions, krotty, shaolin, wing chun, aikido, etc. we don't get boxers and wrestlers and Judo players in here talking about how deadly they are. Aliveness kills delusion.
>>
>>755981
>we don't get boxers and wrestlers and Judo players in here talking about how deadly they are
have you ever gone outside? boxing especially is notorious for breeding cunts. and I notice you didn't put bjj on your list because you know how delusional they are, so don't sit there pretending judo is so far removed from it.

I'm pretty much done with this thread though, maybe I'll pop back in here and there if you guys keep shit talking. Until then, I'll see you in a couple weeks. just let me know what day and time works for you.
>>
>>756039

I'm not him. You'll never show up for that fight though.

Jocks will talk about kicking your ass, but only you TMA faggots fantasize about all the deadly shit you imagine you can do. Thinking you're Dexter.

Boxer talking shit: I'll knock this bitch out!

Gojutwat talking shit: I will use my deadly battlefield skills to wreak this foolish mortal's doom. I am honestly afraid of the atrocities I might perpetrate on this person by sheer reflex.

You're sick in your mind, little kid.

>>749290
OP, I get there are a lot of Boxing/BJJ anons on here that call Karate/Kung Fu garbage, but that's just 4chan. There is no best style, just styles that work for different people. If you're wanting to practice Karate/Kung fu, that's fine, but if your aim is to 'beat' other styles, you're as bad as the people that talk shit about your favouite style.

I have a 3rd Dan in shukokai, and have been an instructor for 5 years. I think the style's biggest shortcoming is that most Karateka think that Karate is an excusively striking style. Kenwa Mabuni stated this way back in the 1930s that most of the grappling in karate is being lost, as the newer instructors in tokyo were just teaching strikes this is one of the reasons a lot of the anons on here think Krotty other than kyokushin is a joke.

It's very important to acknowledge that every style has something to offer, and to acknowledge the gaps in your style. To exclude a style because "some anon that likes BJJ said mean things about krotty" is just stupid.

I trian Jiujitsu too, and would love to get some boxing in, but there are only so many hours in the day, and there aren't any boxing gyms nearby. Use whatever's available, don't be snobbish about one style or another, we're all martial artists here.

>>749297
>You can really see that at all of the Goju ryu "dojos" that do 100% kihon and kata and 0% anything else.

Well, that's a shit dojo. Don't judge any style by their MacDojos, that's making a strawman.
>>
>>756089
If you think all TMA pactinioners think this way, you're delusional.

I reccomend Iain Abernethy for practical application of TMA. he always separates stuff that can be used for self defence and stuff that is more for Martial 'play'. Good guy to train with, I've been to a few of his seminars.
>>
>>756928

Oh, good. It's this bullshit again.

Face the facts, mate. Styles tend to come bundled with training methods. If you know nothing about a gym other than the name of the style, you can make a reasonable judgment of how they probably train. There may be outliers, but you can bank on the average school you run into being average.

I looked up shukokai just now. It looks like shit. Goofy stances, kata competitions, terrible sparring. I'm sure you train in one of the rare awesome dojos, because everybody on the Internet does. 99% of you train in the 1% of dojos that don't suck.

If I have limited time in my life and all I know about two gyms is one has "kyokushin" on the door and one has "wado-ryu" on the door, the vast majority of the time I'm going to be better served not even visiting the wado-ryu school. Odds are it's not one of the rare good ones.
