    strange technique

    You can't compare the two. It's not the fact that it's an aerial maneuver that makes it useless. Just because one aerial move from an entirely different discipline works doesn't mean another will be effective. What makes it useless is that it won't work and you'll end up on the canvas!

    "submarine kick"

    i think if you do a search for cobra punch here you'll find what you're looking for. basically, you fake a round kick then punch them while your leg is still in the air - a surprise attack.

    muay thai technique

    To anybody that has trained for more than a few weeks, I don't know how useful this list really is, but here are a few things I'd like to note: 1. You might add the overhand right (or left from a southpaw). 2. I don't really know how you can throw a lead cross. Isn't this contradictory to...

    Sash Tests

    I think I can speak for the majority of the people on this board and say that we'd be a little weary of this, solely for the reason, as you already feel, that it smacks of a mcdojo money making scheme. It's not really something popular in the West, or anywhere else for that matter.

    Ramon Dekkers DVD

    That's what I was afraid of. No other replies so I guess that's what I'll have to do. Thanks, Odin.

    Ramon Dekkers DVD

    Anybody know where I could get the DVDs of his fights? Most of the places that I've found online that sell them are coming out of Europe. Anybody know a vendor in the US?

    Hey Everybody!!!

    Hey MuayThaiGuy. Welcome. I can understand your concerns. We've all met at least one retired boxer stuck with a speech impediment for the rest of his life due to too many rounds in the ring. However, most of the time if you find a retired Muay Thai fighter that struggles with the effects of...

    First ring fight

    Big props man. You did alright. I have a feeling by the next fight you'll keep your head and remember the game plan. Congrats on a great first fight. Definitely nothing to be embarrassed about.

    Shin Conditioning, Diet, and Sex for Performance?

    It's interesting, but I'm skeptical. To read the study you have to subscribe to the journal, so we don't know how significant the increase in testosterone levels was, and given that the study only included 10 participants, it's hard to draw and solid conclusions from it...

    Shin Conditioning, Diet, and Sex for Performance?

    Sex doesn't affect testosterone levels. If that were the case, guys who abstained from sex would be bigger and stronger than those who didn't. The archaic training advice to avoid sex before athletic competition has some value (although very little) given the idea that a heavy session with the...

    Why so few elbows?

    I think Green hit the nail on the head.

    Anyone ever have to use their boxing skills in the street?

    lol - a native and 2 black guys. I love how the descriptions in stories like this are pretty much race, and that's it. I'm not criticizing you, Ric, just social commentary, I guess.

    Super Bowl XL

    Did the Seahawks get cheated? Someone should create a poll for this. (I know, I know, but I'm a poor student right now.)

    Neck strengthening

    Are these exercises hard on the spine or something?
  21. Jagermeister


    So you were 150 lbs. or so when you started 4 months ago, and you put on 40 pounds in that time? Were you in a concentration camp? That's a ton of weight to gain in that amount of time. You might want to check your blood pressure. Big gains like that in short periods are hard on the body...

    Hello from Georgia

    That's what I hear. Good to have you on board. There's quite a bit of MMA around Atlanta, isn't there? What's your art, anyway?

    Why does it take years to learn self-defense when a fight is less than 12 seconds?

    To answer the original question, it's kind of like working all year long so you can get your 2 weeks off, then bam, the vacation's over in the blink of an eye. "Well, there's always next year." Life sucks, doesn't it?

    Neck strengthening

    My neck is so weak. Just a few minutes of plam drilling left it sore for about 2 or 3 days, so I got one of those head harnesses that allows you to attach weights for neck exercises. What kind of workout, i.e. movements, sets, reps, etc., do you guys recommend with these?

    Kicked in the face

    There's no point in acting tough. It's sparring, not competition, and if you're hurt, you need to be responsible and honest, and take a break for a while. This is not a "no pain, no gain" moment.

    Size and Strength

    In the figurative sense, you are right. In the physical sense, you are wrong. They are not connected. A body is a tangible thing made up of matter. A movement is not an object that has mass and is not tangible. There is not a connection in terms of physics.
