    What got you people into the Martial Arts?

    I had always been kinda interested in MA, one day I was riding through town and saw a blinky light sign that said the place taught kung-fu. So I figured I'd stop in.

    Stomp kicks in mma

    why haven't I ever seen anyone use an earth front kick (stomping with the arch of the foot) on a standing opponent (like in the shin or toes in the clench)? I understand why you can't do it to grounded opponents. it seems just as risky as kneeing someone. Is it against the rules? Sorry for the...

    Encounter of the third kind

    the box looks like a dark ages torture device and the other thing just looks obnoxious. If three arms are good eleventybajillion would be waaaay better

    how to train punching?

    Welcome to the forum. Having pain in your head from punching is probably not good. What punch are you doing? Did your Sifu talk to you about structure? At my school we punch with the last three knuckles, with our wrist locked, and with out elbow down. This drives the return energy into the...

    Lone wing chun practitioners need help!!!

    Keep on training what you doing now. Some training (no matter how bad is better than no training). work on the basics: the 4 hands, 6 stances, and 3 1/2 body methods. My Sigong's Sifu had to stand in horse stance for 2 hours before he was allowed to become a student.

    What made you a fan of your fav. fighter?

    I never had a favourite MMA fighter until I saw Tiequan Zhang's story in the current issue of Kung-Fu Magazine. He is a well known and respected sansho fighter in china that has made the move over to MMA, and seems to have fallen in love with Martial Arts all over again. Sansho doesnt...

    I'm 14 and I want to be a MMA fighter.

    wrestling, do it. It can get you into college. College gets you 4 more years to not have to be an adult. spend those 4 years training at an MMA gym and competing in exhibitions. graduate college ready to hit the big time in your early 20's.

    Weapon Use Against An Unarmed Attacker

    I have absolutely no problem with using a weapon against an unarmed person, to be honest it is preferable. Just because they are unarmed when the fight begins does not mean it will continue that way. As has already been said there are NO fair fights. I carry a tabot at all times, not necessarily...
