Judo works and it has the potential to be deadly effective. The fighter that is using it is the determining factor.
With good training and effort you can become an excellent fighter. Prepare yourself to take some lumps, and give some lumps in matches. That is the best way to test your skill.
There is a place for real force, but that is a small area of life, most martial arts are defensive and avoid killing and maiming. Dueling has no place in civilized areas, but being able to put down an attacker, that does have a place.
That place where force is needed is up to the man involved...
People routinely kill themselves while they are under severe stress. You are blind to reality, because there is an intrinsic possibility of suicide.
She gave up her dream and she may try again in the next Olympic, but she is done with this one.
Maybe she will be fine, but to be aghast that I...
What good is that, if you end up committing suicide? People have done it before. Fifty or one hundred million dollars, will buy you a fabulous house and luxury, but it wont give you peace.
The singer Karen Carpenter comes to mind.People may not mean to suck someone else dry, but they get to...
Knife attacks are fearful things, and someone can drop dead, right on the spot. I guess everyone knows that by using common sense.
That is something that any knife fighter needs to answer, which is, what will I do to save myself?
I mentioned in another post, that killing is easy; but the...
It sounds like she has an anxiety disorder, because she has a lot piled onto her. That will make a mess out of anyone, when the people around you demand that you be flawless. There are winners and losers of events, but there aren’t any flawless people.
I didn't go to prison after I was charged with murder; and that was hard, since it took a jury trial, and an acquittal.
After my acqittal, two of his moron buddies, challenged me to a knife fight. It was dark and they couldn’t see my .45 Auto, that I had in my pocket.
Its a good thing that...
You already know how to kill someone, everyone with any sense knows how to kill.
1: You can cut their throat.
2: You can blow their brains out.
3: You can bash their brains out.
4: You can run over them with a vehicle.
What you are looking for is a preferred method of self-defense, that can be...
Can you find some schools that will let you sit in and observe, and study some of the style? A few sit downs should tell you if it’s to your liking. There is no hard and fast rule on what is best for a man. That is going to be pretty subjective.
In the end, you have to make that call, now me...
Change schools or simply train on your own, if you can’t find a better classroom, with honest instructors. Your sitrep smells of rotten fish, so go to a better fishing ground.
You are free to do what you want, maybe switch out your current fighting style, for something that suits you better.
I was charged with first degree murder, and I stood trial.
I was acquitted, so my advice is to stand trial, and be done with it.
I surrendered to a patrolman; there was blood clear up to my wrist, because I nicked the guys carotid. He attacked me and I defended with a knife.
My TKD school did not teach weapons, but one instructor, would bring his staff and practice with it. It was a big heavy stick, and I am sure that it was a potent means of hurting a thug.
Me personally, I carry a walking stick--a Jo--made of aluminum tubing. I don't see any sense in using nothing...
I sparred with a chick in TKD, she was an instructor with a black belt; and her boobs got in her way, and I think that she was self-conscious of it.
It is difficult to spar with an attractive big booby girl, because of distractions, that is what I learned form that.
Ha, ha, ha...funny, in a...
My hostility is coming from a fount of contempt. I was acquitted in 2 cases of using force, and I have heard the punky vigilantism schtick before.
If you get held up, it would be poetic! What would you do, stand there and contemplate?
What about you? I did not ask what your relatives do: I asked, what did you know about it? In my lowly eyes you are all mouth, one who has never fought; and never will stain its delicate hands, in a fight. [Why fight when you can dial 911, and run away?]
You are an onlooker, and that is it, and...
The pieces of life's puzzle must be insoluble to you. You cannot use inference, and you cannot use logic, and yet you sit there and tell me that I will become the aggressor.
Stabbing is a very serious felony, and anyone is justified to use deadly force, against the attacker if it happens to...
I am just thinking on my feet, and it seems like Krav Maga is so loose in concept; that it might tend to fall apart, right when you need it most.
I am certain that their are masters of the art, who never have to wonder about their next move. If I am wrong, OK, it isn't the first time.
Krav Maga works and so does Combatives, but it is loosey goosey in ways; it is difficult to draw up a playbook of what constitutes the art; at least in my mind.
I have a book on Army Combatives, which can be summarized this way, harm or kill them, with any means at hand. And, Krav Maga seems to...
Yeah, what he said! See, I ain't the only one.
A good wrassler can break yer neck, and that is a good thing to keep in mind. And this video demonstrates what I have said in some of my posts, in this thread.
It can all end with getting dropped on your head; and if you get killed by such a move...
I have attended and watched pro wrestling, and those monsters could rip a man in two, IMHO. I will have to go back and read post 142-153, with emphasis on 152, to get my story straight.
However, whether this is the Wing Chung sub-forum, or a gun/knife forum immaterial to me. The topic is Are...
