    MMA is the most traditional martial art

    That's the key, no PRIDE and TRADITION involve, just the best way to win. It is so common even people open to MMA, still they STUCK in finding what's in their style to counter an attack INSTEAD of learning from MMA the most effective way to counter. We have long discussion about how to counter...

    MMA is the most traditional martial art

    I can understand and agree if people treat MA as ART, that there is no right or wrong, no better or worst. That each art is their own. Like people say you cannot compare different sports like football or basketball, or painting vs music.......... BUT, that's not what a lot of people in MA are...

    MMA is the most traditional martial art

    jealousy, stubborn. MMA whooped their butts. MMA combines ONLY the effective moves from all style, there is no PRIDE to get in the way. MMA uses a lot of TKD kicks because they are good. Also the philosophy of MMA is different, other older styles believe in follow and honor the tradition. They...

    Gripping a knife

    I really follow how I strike with a cane shown here for knife: When I slash, I do like punching straight out, but at the same time turn my body to create the rotating slash motion. This helps to make the slash very compact, not like wild swing. At close to point of contact, it's almost FULL...

    Gripping a knife

    I did not read the entire thread, but I am interested in grip. I am just starting not to long ago, I find the grips best suit from slashing and stabbing and thrusting the heavy bag is this: 1) For slashing and cutting, I use SABER grip with thumb on top of the knife so I can control the knife...

    Anyone use this kind of twist bar? Tell me your experience

    It really hurts hitting by those, it even scratch my face and everyone notice and laugh!!! I already put the safety loop over my wrist, I even use those sticky bottle opener to grab the handle. Just a moment of lack of concentration did that to me. I was watching news on tv, just slight lost of...

    Anyone use this kind of twist bar? Tell me your experience

    No, it's not like push up at all. I do pushing for warmup. I can fly through 50 with legs 3ft off the floor easily. I am using the old school spring coil type. It's dangerous, it slipped off my hand the other day and wack my face!!!! this is what I have: I just want to get something safer than...

    Anyone use this kind of twist bar? Tell me your experience

    I have plenty of dumbells, it's not the same. Or else, you just do bench press, dumb bell curls and it's enough. It's not. I can assure you it is different.

    Anyone look into the inside of folding knives on the construction?

    I am stunned too. I join two other knife forums and read some of the comments. Knives to them are like handbags to women. It's about NAME brands, nice looking, a lot of them are thin and trim looking. Even the more rugged looking ones don't have the protection. Look at Spyderco, expensive, but...

    Anyone look into the inside of folding knives on the construction?

    Yes, seriously looked into it. Now this is my own crazy issue. I don't know why I love plastic polymer guns, but I don't like polymer only knife handle!!! One side of the handle has no steel lining. That's the ONLY reason I didn't go for it. I know, this is my problem!!! Here's the video...
