    One against many, i.e. survive long enough to practise run-fu

    This is very interesting. I'm an engineer. I like going with the statistics of things. I pretty much withdraw the entire thread :). But I'm happy to hear everyones experience. I emailed my trainer to urge him to up the multiple attacker defence training backed by my previous arguments. He...

    One against many, i.e. survive long enough to practise run-fu

    So I've been at some JJ and some Aikido...and I got to think some more...very dangerous, thinking, you know. So I reckon most self defence situation will be when I'm out numbered, right...so why does no one actively train multiple aggressors defence on a regular basis... in any of the martial...

    Sport And TMA....Again

    To me the sport is a form of simulation. Not bad all things considered. The simulation has to fit the art though. Also, you don't need to test every aspect in the same simulation. For the effectiveness of eye gouging, I would try a dummy, not a person...maybe not as realistic, but we have...

    Sport And TMA....Again

    I wonder why they call it Art? Is it a form of self expression? Can I sportly express my competitiveness? I always think of art as the novel self made creation of something beautiful (at least to myself) which requires innovation and skill.

    Your Ideal and Real Cross-Train Styles

    I'd like to know what your ideal and real cross-train styles/arts are, how you would/do prioritize them in hours and why. First me: Ideally I would do 1.5 hrs x2 weekly Wing Chun, and 2 hrs x1 weekly Ju Jutsu. I find learning JJ far easier and natural, so I need less time. My striking...

    Twisting your punch

    I mentioned earlier how important the rest of the body is in a pinch and that if twisting effects the rest of the body posture and movement, then this must be scrutinized. I got the chance to glance into my Christmas present before my wife packed it away (a new book called "Parting the Clouds")...

    Twisting your punch

    Strike hieght and distance seem to play an important role. A twisted punch seem almost impossible at very close quarters. But what happens to the rest of the body? Let's take a look at over twisting... An additional consideration is that of an over twisted (or over horizontal twisted) punch...

    Punch:time to impact vs impact force

    Another interesting discussion on the forum is about the "test" of the "one inch punch" to be found here: http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php/109555-1-inch-punch-put-to-the-test?highlight=one+inch+punch+test This is a good example of my subject line heading.

    1 inch punch put to the test

    A sprinter also relaxes in the "get set" position in the starting blocks. Every athlete that needs to use explosive power (should) has learnt this. I learnt this in basket ball to jump higher. Has anyone tried a one inch push. I bet it generates the same force and "hurts" the same. How about...

    After a bit more study on the internet I have come to the same conclusion. My second conclusion is that I will need to make my own sence out of what each move means.

    Punch:time to impact vs impact force

    ...the question is biomechanical (I'm an engineer, but not a doctor). Another suitable analogy is a base ball pitch...not just the fast onces are the most successful. However, it was interesting to note that history's fastest pitches are around the 100 mph (160 km/h) mark, and that history's...

    Punch:time to impact vs impact force

    During take-off and landing time of my punch, my muscle have time to invest more Joules into the traveling mass of my fore-arm and fist. All things being equal, this means that the longer the flight path, the more Joules can be added to its ever increasing kinetic energy (a good analogy would be...

    Defence against chain punching

    Thanks guys. Great thread. Both liberal and conservative view points can enrich us. All responses are welcome (as well as critisisms). We don't have to agree (if we all agreed there would be no improvement).

    Thanks for picking this us. Great community by the way, I'm living it. Sorry, tome..not tomb (my bad). And to qualify further I meant specifically literature explaining the compendium of forms in a modern form (scrolls format is not supported by my iPhone and I can't buy it on eBay). I think I...

    Sorry, tome..not tomb. And to qualify further I meant specifically literature explaining the compendium of forms in a modern form (scrolls format is not supported by my iPhone). I'll follow this further on the linked thread, thanks.

    Information Behind Siu Lim Tao

    That is a dissapointing response. Every major religion in the world had a tomb codifying its teachings even if it is open to literal and or metaphorical interperatation(s). Ironically, not a single martial arts system I know of has sought to put to paper it's teachings in this way in the modern...

    Defence against chain punching

    I never explicitly expected a WC responce per say, but do expect the most experience in this regard from the WC community for the following reasons:* 1) From my research, I have read that the 3rd form of WC has, as one of it's main motives, the recovery from strongly disadvantaged and unbalanced...

    Defence against chain punching

    I would like to humbly thank you and the others here for your reply. Since you insist... I'm posting the question here because I believe someone studying WT is most often both on the giving and the receiving side of this situation in his training. Therefore, I'll get the best answers here.*...

    Defence against chain punching

    I'm going on the premise of "lost" balance or footwork. In other words, you need to learn your stances and footwork. Are you training yourself, or do you have a qualified sifu who can help you with this? I guess the question is about recovering your foot work, which is hard when he's...

    Defence against chain punching

    Good answeres. Thanks. Considering, rolling to get distance...I've seen a good WT fighter opponant simply follow quickly (he was somehow expecting the rolling away or had seen it before, I assume) and be there exactly when the fallen guy is trying to get back up (not a good ending for him)...

    Defence against chain punching

    No, when I said off balance I'm trying to say that I'm falling backwards and if the push against me was slightly harder/faster, I would really land on my bum. I'm toying with the idea of letting myself "fall" away as if I'm half turning around so I would at least hit the ground in a kind of...

    Defence against chain punching

    What is an effective defence against a supprise rush on flurry of blows (which has already put you off balance and back pedelling) attack from a decent WT fighter?
