    Handbag snatch

    Nah, nothing to discuss. I mean, there's not point discussing awareness or anything else. Just take up MMA. It’s all anyone needs for SD apparently.

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    Ok, I give up. Clearly the best way to prepare for multiplie opponents is to never train to deal with multiple opponents. The best way to train to deal with weapons is to never train to deal with weapons. Instead just take up MMA because it covers everything to do with SD that anyone could...

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    No one is saying it's not overwhelimg odds. What I am saying is the best way to preapre for multiple opponents is to practice trainig against multiple opponents, rather than training to deal with one opponent and then have no idea, no skills and no training to deal with multiple opponents.

    Philadelphia Self Defense - JKD

    Just seems to be your typical martial arts class pretending to be SD. All I can see on their videos is fighting & physical techniques. The physical side of SD is important of course,, but it’s just one small part. The soft skills (non physical) are arguably more important, but I don’t see...

    Handbag snatch

    Of course this isn’t actually self defence as it’s not two men agreeing to fight each other in the street (which as we know is the only SD scenario that can ever exist) and of course situational awareness would not have prevented it as the only skills that work when it comes to SD are figthing...

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    Correct, there are no skills that will allow you to follow to fight 7 people when you are unconscious, because you have never trained for multiple opponents and so don’t look at what is going on around you, and get blindsided. Where as of course the best way to deal with multiple opponents is...

    Which is exactly what you did with your initial post. Everydays a school day ;)

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    I’m suggesting the best way to prepare for multiple opponents is to train for multiple opponents, rather than not training for multiple opponents and then having no training no understanding and no skills to deal with multiple opponents.

    TKD is Weak on the street as a self defense?

    How the hell have we had 10 pages of discussion about wet grass o_O

    He wasn’t unable, he said he couldn’t be bothered to argue with you. If it’s something you’ll never understand he’s just banging his head against a brick wall.

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    I’m suggesting he best way to deal with multiple opponents is to train to deal with multiple opponents, as opposed to not training to deal with them and then having no understanding, no training and no skills to deal with it if it happens.

    Your inability to understand does not make it nonsensical.

    To you it seems that way yes.

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    The only way to deal with multiple opponents is to train to deal with multiple opponents. How can not training to deal wih multiple opponents not be a fail in of his training. Clearly that’s exactly what it is.

    TKD is Weak on the street as a self defense?

    They are not ineffective, but they carry a higher risk, in terms of leaving you in a worse position should they go wrong. Karate kata were designed for civilian self protection, there’s a reason they are no head height kicks.

    Martial Arts Aren't Magic

    You're missing the point. The well trained are easily defeated when they are trained for a totally different sort of combat. He was trained for a consensual fight/sporting contest not self defence/non consensual criminal violence. He never trained to deal with multiple opponents or weapons...

    So was Kaue Mena a martial artist? Although he was an undefeated MMA fighter, the one time he had to fight for real he couldn't pull of any of the techniques he knew.

    Krav Maga or Muay Thai?

    Look the word pre-emptive up in a dictionary. Against my better judgement I did two things wrong. One, I clicked “show ignored content”. Two, I watched this video. I’m talking SD and the first two things I see on the video when I skip forward are two guys engaging in a consensual fight on a...

    UFC 218

    No, you didn’t, but then I didn’t imply that you did. But yes he should let people know, assuming he’s made the decision yet.

    UFC 218

    To be fair he doesn't need the UFC either. He's got $100m.

    Is that a tube of Pringles in your gi, or are you just pleased to see me?

    I changed it to Pringles because if I’d have put crisps it would have confused some your countrymen ;)

    Kyokushin vs. Judo

    What Is the best colour underpants to wear for judo? What flavour of Pringles is best to eat before judo class? What is the best type of bag to carry my judo gi in? In which compass direction is it best to break wind during judo class?

    Question about a Grand Master

    This is a demonstration of your total misreading of my posts. I find no part of this amusing or numerous. Bullies use the “it’s just a laugh” excuse. Yes, it’s a laugh to them, it’s not laugh to the people they are humiliating. Nor is it a good example to set, as an instructor, for...

    Martial sacrilege (part 2)

    So if you can learn MA from videos, your earlier statement that you can’t learn MA from a DVD because DVDs don’t hit back, was incorrect?

    Yes, it’s only a bit of fun tends to be the usual excuse trotted out by bullies.

    Martial sacrilege (part 2)

    I’m not sure what he means which is why I’m asking him. Not all MA involve fighting, so I’d like to know if he thinks you can learn them from videos or not.

    Recreation of the application of forms

    It depends on the meaning they find I guess. Some of the moronic interpretations of kata (which are a result of people who doesn’t understand it trying use it against karate attacks from other karate-ka) have meaning, but they are not valid in terms of practicality in a live situation.
