    Martial Arts

    so today after 3 months having Black belt i got Black belt with 8th degree in Tae Kwon Do Click here to enlarge
    I'm looking for a thieve or a bad guy to beat the crap of him Click here to enlarge
    for those who are not familiar with the Tae Kwon Do's ranks(they are different ranking systems, it depends on the school) the 8th degree is right before 9th degree, which is for the masters.

    which one of you guys knows any type of Martial arts ?

    Those were awesome.
    How old are you Gixxer ? you seem younger than a bunch of people here.
    we have a common sentence here "an old lion is still a lion"
    note : it sounds much cooler in Farsi, but cuz English sucks it doesn't sound that cool.

    What the .... ? just 41 ? who said you are old? we have another common sentence in Farsi about 40's but that really sounds crap when you translate in to English so i keep it for myself, but seriously you aren't old.

    So true about the effectiveness of boxing for fighting. Kung Fu is good too, but it takes a lot longer to develop your skills to a point that you can be as effective as you would be after 3-6 months of Western Boxing.

    Good for you... for learning how to box.

    I'm a BJJ guy myself, although, I've trained in boxing, kick boxing, and Judo for the last 11 years on and off.

    I taught myself how to box from reading Bruce Lee's Instruction books. When I first tried to punch a heavy bag (first several times) I felt like such a wimp--everything hurt. But I kept on going and over a long time I improved.

    Fast forward 7 years. I saw an add on Craigslist for an ex Olympian boxing coach giving lessons down at a Boys Club. So I went down for a lesson... mainly to pick up a techinque or two and to see what critique I would recieve. I was proud when the coach told me "you have the goods, you just need to spar more." So, looks like my practice paid off.

    Jiu Jitsu is a whole nother story. I've injured every part of my body in devotion to that style. Breaks, tears, tears (haha... ribs... ouch) I've felt it all. But that's cause sparring in jiu-jitsu is really learning how to handle men of all shapes and sizes.

    I've learned several things over the years: 1) don't street fight, because if you love martial arts, you risk getting injured on the street and that will take you from training; 2) people that are bigger than you and stronger than you have a real advantage and unless you're really on your timing and current in your practice, the advantage for the larger opponent may be too big; and 3) keep an open mind to all styles.

    most of them learn martial arts because they feel it's unsafe, so they learn it for defending themselves.
    a small part of them learn it because they think it's cool, they think street fights happen all the time and it's an opportunity for showing how cool they are.

    I used to be into tae kwon do when I was younger but my school changed to Tiger Schullman and I totally didn't like the new school so I left for good. It was great and I doing really well there. I've been thinking about it lately because I can barely stretch anymore.

    Sambo is awesome. My favorite fighter of all time is Fedor Emelianenko.

    Yeah, trying to take someone down who is that much larger than you requires guts (you have that) and near perfect timing. Most Judo techniques would be really difficult to execute unless the opponent is wearing a heavy sweatshirt or even better a nice jacket. Of course you don't need clothes to pull off Judo throws, trips, sweeps, but it's so hard without good grips.

    I think the best way to handle a much larger opponent is to fake like you're going to exchange blows with them and then as soon as you sense that they are commiting to an exchange of hands, drop your level, and shoot in on their legs/hips and just take them down. From there, (Thank G-d), your smaller size has the immediate advantage as you can scramble much more effectively and you can hopefully secure back control when the larger, downed opponent tries getting up--which he will, unless he's a high level jits player who has a nasty guard, but we're not likely to encounter 290 lbs guard players in street fights.

    Do it, it's not late, it really helps you both physicaly and mentaly.
    i used to think it's all BS, martial art just imporves your body but now i can feel the changes, all the pain it caused you gives you another defenition of hard condition.
