    Ronda Rousey says she never lifts weights

    Yeah, exactly. I am trolling because I say things the majority does not want to agree with. Where did you grow up ? In communism ?

    Ronda Rousey says she never lifts weights

    I see, so because I prefer an other type of women and I personally feel she looks too masculine, you call me a type of guy who just hates women who are fighting ? Come on, but this has no connection at all, you are just trolling at me because you have too much spare time. But you know what ...

    Ronda Rousey says she never lifts weights

    Again, claiming things about me that isn't true. This shows me that you are not objective at all. The guy who thinks a fighting women looks masculin MUST say it because he does not accept fighting women. Is this how you think ? You said this, so it came out of your mind. Not mine. I just think...

    Did anyone here had to use Wing-Chun in a RL self-defence situation ?

    True, but the ability to recognize danger and avoid it, does not prove how effective the Wing-Tsun system is in a real self defense situation, to specify what a self defense situation is. Self-defense or self-defence (see spelling differences) is a countermeasure that involves defending the...

    Too old to compete?

    Age doesn't matter, disciplin matters. As long as you do not get unconcious after 20 seconds, you should be able to compete. Just stay fit, stay focused and you will have a positive solution.

    Choosing a school

    Correct, good that you remind me though. The training environment and training structure I saw children in, were the same as for adults, this might be the reason why they were not able to follow or concentrate as much as we adults did. I've got no children, so I don't know much about it...

    Is Taekwondo Closed-Minded?

    Maybe it depends also from the martial art they actually train.

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    This might be right, but is sadly not the common case for non-online present martial art clubs.

    Is Taekwondo Closed-Minded?

    I think people who did one and the same martial art their whole life, tend to be scared of other martial arts. I mean more in the way to maybe get disappointed by their own martial art. I know a couple of Wing-Tsun instructors who keep telling after 15-20 years of practising Wing-Tsun, that...

    Jiyu Kumite or Free Sparring

    I personally think it always depends from the persons motivation. Some people might do taekwondo just to stay fit, some people want to learn some real fighting, some maybe are just interested in to the traditions, some are maybe a mixture of all of it. I would even go this far, a martial art...

    Jiyu Kumite or Free Sparring

    In my place we do not do full contact at all. We are allowed to kick the upper leg ( thig ) but only outside even without protectors, we are allowed to kick and punch to the head, but prefered to hit the protectors, we are allowed to kick to the torso. But all is more semi-contact. If you go...

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    Hehe, good one. I know that there are clubs which have no online presence at all, I just think a club which wants to survive, NEED online presence. Because the people starting with martial arts, are MOSTLY below 30 or even below 20s, which means, they are not going to walk around and ask people...

    Where is systema going to be in 10 years ?

    I don't want to start a flamewar or some sort of endless discussion. But I share your opinion. I know quiet a lot of sambo people, and all of them are highly skilled. I did Wing-Tsun for a while and have been researching on many Wing-Tsun schools and instructors, I also go this far to say that...

    Why does MMA count as an own martial art now ?

    Correct, my opinion is very subjective, I've never said it would be objective ! MMA is gentle yes, compared to for example ancient pankration. But this is not the point I wanted to discuss. However, have a nice day, I am feed up repeating myself.

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    Don't worry, I don't need your help. I am already in a Taekwondo-class and I can use google myself. The question was not really dependent from what I am doing, it was more a common question.

    Absolute right, this discussion has nothing to do with my thread and is totally meaningless to me, or how you would maybe call it " A waste of time ".

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    I understand you very well, but you are not specific enough. All you claim is you would have been/and living in Germany for a while and you've seen and trained in many different martial art clubs, and also claim you've trained in " specialist places for specific skills " which does not make any...

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    So, do I get this right. You claim I am wrong because you've visited some " specialist clubs " how you call it, and I the person who lived in German for 20 years and trained at least 11 years in about 100 different martial art schools and styles is definitely wrong ? Come on, you might have...

    Is taekwondo very common in the UK?

    How long did you live in the UK ? How many different martial art clubs did you actually visit more than once ? What type of martial arts did you practice in the UK and what martial arts did you practice in Germany ? What were your goals when joining certain clubs ? Since you are not even able...

    Why?

    I agree, this show might be fun to watch for a 14 years old, but for an adult with martial arts backround and maybe even military or law enforcment backround, or just an adult with some knowledge, this show is utter BS.
