Not seeing the obvious pulling of punches, lack of follow through, lack of hip rotation on hooks, throwing from far enough away that they dont make hard impact, in 90% of you Mayweather, says enough on your view of hard sparring
It ISNT full contact sparring, theyre pulling punches, not following through, etc. If you can't see that nobody can help you
Yes, as do Most TMAS......
And outside of Internal Chinese, all those styles spar...Not as hard as others, but still spar.
Hard sparring is the level where theres a...
Notice how only one or two fighters say they go 100% in regular sparring
And even a few of that minority admit it isnt the greatest idea
Controlled sparring doesnt mean no or light contact, you can still get knocked out.
If you think thats match level fighting you've never seen a bout.....Theres a definite degree of control on both sides...The Champ is sparring like that becuse its the best way to spar. Not to far off from a bout and hard enough that you learn, but controlled enough your body will be able to...
No they dont,
Even professionals, very few regularly or even weekly spar at 100+% like its a bout for a million reasons
Several pros in Boxing and MMA have even spoke out about why you shouldnt regularly spar like its a bout.
It's typically exactly the same way most TMA's do, 60-80%
This is true but it also forces you to learn proper set up and angles,
which is something even high level MMA fighters miss out on.
Just about every UFC has a handful of non-MT kicks that are thrown just all around poorly with zero set up, and in just about every UFC someone pays for it
As striking bases (I say that because you will learn a lot more than just 1 striking style +one grappling style) the TMA's will be just as effective as BOxing, kickboxing, etc. assuming the practitioner is training with contact and resistance.
This is because there isnt a steep transition at...
What "hurts" Martrial Arts, is sacrifice for the sake of popularity.
That funakoshi trained in okinawa versus what he turned shotokan into in order to help it spread were complete opposites.
It happened with TKD as well over the years for a variety of difference, particularly Kukki TKD which...
Just about every kickboxing style has ties to TMA's I have no idea why people think the two have to be mutually exclusive.
Not to mention there arent usually many differences anyways , depending on your school/style.
Just TMA's without the forms in a nutshell
This point is irrelevant,
Several other martial arts are implemented by militaries, police, security, etc. It's incredibly common, even MCMAP admits to taking styles you've shown distaste for.
Not to mention MMA fighters and trainers in general tend to pull from those styles themselves.
Considering the facts that:
There are records of Korean soldiers using traditional TKD back in the day successfully against other trained soldiers
Scores of fighters in various settings using various styles TKD as their base in the ring(and many, many more using various parts of tkd)*
Mcgregors the better striker, but thats it.
Aldo won't stand and strike with him, he'll do what mendes(significantly better since he had a full camp) and out grapple him.
Even if connor started rolling, he isnt going to bridge the gap in skill in a year
Its a bout, so anything can...
Training in heavier gloves doesnt make a huge impact of physical strength
Its much more about making your fight gloves feel lighter when you're dead tighter
Like training 9 rounds at 3 minutes, with 30 second rest for a 3 round fight at 3 minute rounds with one minute rest
Theyll slim up your...
Rhonda was smart to not just charge in, but just didnt have the striking experience to do what she needed to do.
Its incredibly hard to get proper takedowns on someone with good movement as she learned
Part of it falls to her coaches for letting her think her striking was up to par, and...
The flurry of straight punches to the face(as no competent point fighter will throw on or two and then stop) that you see in TMA's, are also pretty common in MMA, Boxing, etc.
Especially when the opponent isnt moving properly or backing up.
Overrunning like that works, if your opponent...
Cause theres a pretty long list......
Even in Karate alone, theres a huge percentage of people who dont care at all about competition....Heck, there are folks in boxing and MMA gyms that dont care to compete....
Again....theres a pretty strong list in both kick boxing and MMA.....but...
You learn how to learn. You learn all of a system rather than the bits you think you should. And you can ajust your game to the situation at hancd xexexexeFighters do this all the time to train to beat specific fighters.
So say for boxing. And whether or not you are an in fighter or out...
