    For my classes we count in Japanese for Japanese arts and Chinese in Chinese arts. We use in our syllabus Japanese terms like kote Gaeshi, ippon, gyaku nothing were a person has to speak a sentence, if you walk in most Karate, Aikido, Judo schools they all use Japanese terminology from mawashi...

    Blocking Moderators

    Hi I think on a forum you should be able to block moderators who you feel not comfortable with. If someone is a moderator and is active on a forum and discussing as a member, then as members we should have the right to not see his or her post or engage with them. We should be allowed to ignore...

    Kesa Giri is the technique used in Kenjutsu. In English people might say it is a Downward diagonal cut. however the cut is to cut a Kesa this has a meaning behind it. This term if you know it in one kenjutsu school the meaning can also be used in another. Downward Diagonal cut might mean...

    Again you keep using the ring as the measuring stick. I explained to you 2 schools of thought. Some think you should have had fights in a ring some say you do not. I think you do not need to fight in a ring if you are sparing, and your goal is not to compete or fight in a ring. I also said the...

    Great 1 out of thousands over hundreds of years. Having been to Japan and lived there most Japanese are not fluent in English nor will put their techniques in English if anything it would be Japanese English, its just odd. I have never been to a dojo in Japan and the sensei spoke everything in...

    Ok your first comment was "If you (are) teach(ing) muay thai. Someone should (be able to) fight (with?) (in?) muay thai." This was your first opinion The sentence was very difficult to understand You then change your stance to: "You don't have to fight. But the muay thai should be at a...

    Any wai gong posture holding does this. Qigong has both Wai gong and Nei gong practices. Wai gong is more tension pressure to build Qi, Neigong uses more relaxing methods to build Qi in a general sense. Yi Jin Jing is one of the most well known Wai gong Qigong sets. Most tension pressure...

    I think any martial art should be at a competency level with someone in fighting. You do not need a ring to spar someone light or full contact per say. Also you have to know your clientele, if I have soccer mom Jenny, and Old man Bob they are not looking to do Muay to fight full contact they...

    Do you mean if someone is teaching Muay Thai they should have ring experience? 2 schools of thought on it, some say yes you should IF you are teaching Muay Thai for the ring. Others will say if you are teaching Muay Thai for self defense, fitness, then no having ring experience is not required...

    my opinion is you should use the native languages terminology in teaching said martial art from that country. if you disagree that is fine.

    If a person does not understand the technique correctly even if they apply it and a result occurs does not mean they understood the the technique's intent is. If you say you do Judo and only learned Judo and teach Judo, but your terminology for Ude Garami is always Kimura lock other Judoka and...

    first benefit: By learning common wording of techniques in native language you can have a better linking of other techniques and even from other styles from that country. Second benefit: Some words just can not be explained well enough in translations, translating comes up with the closest...

    When you learn an art you should learn the terminology of the art. When I study Muay Thai and Muay Boran the terminology is in Thai, When I do Karate the terms are in Japanese. When I teach we use the terminology of the arts language and not English

    Some thoughts. It seems more focus on Krav, guns, fitness which is fine. The Muay Thai they offered not sure, most people teaching have a coach, Kru, or Arjarn title, having a fight record isn't necessary though helps, he may have just studied for 20 years and teaches what he knows. They are...

    Weak points in the body you exploit?

    Knees and nose. Knees are what I go for with kicks using longest part of body to closest target. Nose because it disrupts breathing pattern, causes eyes to water and disorients, and is a great way to diminish an opponents confidence. If I am able to get to side of my opponent ( In Ashihara...

    my boyfriend feel humiliate because of me have I been too far??

    If you already apologize for it, And he is storming off and leaving the room Then you need to address how that is making you feel to him. I think you guys need to sit down and communicate, listen to his feelings, work together on solving the issues, avoidance and isolation is only going to...

    my boyfriend feel humiliate because of me have I been too far??

    My training partner is often my wife, reason being she is an experience martial artist. What I am getting is your boyfriend was humiliated and his ego bruised. I am thinking he wanted to train honestly and seriously and you wanted more to have fun. He most likely associates Judo with that...

    An embarrassment of riches

    Catch wrestling is I believe with Potenza as he is from Arizona and has schools out there and is from Billy Robinson's line, I would train with them if I was there as it is hard to find a good catch wrestling school. You can look it up at Catch As Catch Can – History Tradition & Technique

    The Way of the Samurai

    What I mean by oral transmission is that the inner workings and principles are given only oral they are not written down. So if a scholar who is translating Musashi's book has never trained in the ryuha(school of Japanese art) is going to translate the meaning incorrectly. I used the example...

    The Way of the Samurai

    Scholars have list and resources but mostly from looking outside and can not give the details and secrets that are usually orally transmitted. Those like Dr. Karl Friday, Diane and Meik Skoss and others can give both a scholar and inside look to a certain point as even they will not give secrets...

    What style would you add to your training?

    I like to learn S.A.W. Japanese wrestling. I do practice Catch but I always wanted to train S.A.W. Specific. I did train some that was mixed with Kudo and Jujutsu. I think Paulson's CSW is the closest to S.A.W.
