    You should make it very clear when the new student join your class, make them sign that they understand that you are going to contact reasonably hard. That if they don't want that, don't join your school. This is to protect you from lawsuit. I don't know where are you, in US, it's so easy to...

    I not Even with the rediscovery of European styles with kicks and other complexity how come Western weapon styles are nowhere as flashy and acrobatic?

    I can't follow exactly what OP said, I can only guess that OP was wondering why Some style don't have fancy moves like the other. I just have a question to OP. Are those fancy moves practical? Is MA for showing off or to fight? Do you consider this as "Performance arts" or "fighting arts" or...

    I know, "pole dancing" is not a good term, but what else can I call this? It is so amazing I had to watch it again. I have to repeat again, I am not trying to be disrespectful, it is high praise. It's incredible.

    Say what?!!! I thought ballet is performance art. I thought modern dance is performance art. The pole dance of your daughter is performance art. Kung Fu or Wushu is FIGHTING art. It is an art of KICKING BUTT!!! I really resist in posting already, blame on the few drinks and curiosity that I...

    See, the problem how you think is you can either use one or the other. This is 21st century, think about what works the best. You don't stand there and punch with square shoulder like WC, NOR do you do the exaggeration move like big step, rotating the shoulder in real fight. Common sense says...

    Maybe before giving a high rank, like up to say black belt, the person has to post a video of his practice/fight or whatever they do as practice, so you get a better idea where they are at before giving the high rank. Anyone can talk a lot. One video speaks a 1000 words. I don't deserve a 2nd...

    Simple, pick ONLY the ones that is effective and forget the others!! I do kick boxing and TKD, I particularly use WC punches using the baby knuckles. I am short, I need to punch up, WC punches are the BEST for that. You seems to get stuck on what style and what style. Like the break falls, the...

    Just fine details, idea is the same. Not just breaking the fall, the throw looks the same particular the top one. Can't see the bottom one as it started in the middle of the throwing.

    That's judo!!! I learned that long long time ago!!! It is so important to know how to fall. I still practice lying on the ground, bounce on one of my foot to bounce the body up a few inches and drop down and use the hands to break the fall like judo. I want to make my body getting use to falling...

    I am 69, I did 3 years of Tae Kwon Do in the mid 80s, had to quit due to back injury from all the high kick. But I never stop practicing at home. I have two heavy bags and still working on them every week, never stop. I also do weight training. I am still putting in about 7 hours a week in...

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    Sorry to offend you, I don't mean to. I thought it is at least better to insult the particular person to their face. I thought that's the way not to direct confrontation.

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    Hi I rush to make this video even though I am not ready. Just want to show what I have been practicing lately. I change quite a bit because of the videos on the close quarter stuffs, so I added into practice a lot more thrusting, parallel cane to push/thrust to the body or face. I start adding...

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    yes, it is normal like this. I never have problem with my thumb. Even when I was hitting the bag last Sunday, it was not the joint that is painful, it's clearly the compression on the part where the bruise first appeared that hurt(between the two joints, not the joint). Well, I got to hit the...

    It is strange, now the bruise spread: Just one set of 7:30. It's not painful. We'll see, next time hitting the bag will be Sunday.

    Thanks for your response. Yes, I have no intention to get into stick fight match, just day to day self defense, Just want the fastest to get the best result. Also being practice on my own, there is no good way to practice blocking. You really need an opponent to do that. That said, I am green...

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    I sparred in kick boxing for years and I say that. It depends on how fast and how good the opponent is. Don't count on it. Like most boxing and even MMA people, head movement, foot work and parrying type of simple technique is the best option. Not any fancy moves. For bare knuckle, Like...

    I am hoping this will pass, switching hands is like switching stance or going south paw. I am training south paw in kick boxing, it's not easy.

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    I watched the videos a few times. The first video is very unfair to you. Look like you use a training stick that is soft and he had the head protection. No matter how you hit him, he just kept charging and ignore your strikes. This is NOT going to happen in real life!!! If you use a true rattan...

    I must be hitting harder after a week practicing body motion!! I just hit the bag today, look at my thumb, a big bruise. I train on heavy bags twice a week consistently(can't affort to break the heavy bag!!). Last time was Sunday, everything was usual. This morning, after half a set, it was very...

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    I don't have to, I would never carry a sword!! It's always a cane/stick. From watching all these videos, seems like winner or loser, nobody comes out clean. Just more cuts or less cuts. It's not like movies the winner comes out untouched. I guess that's where body armor was used back in the days.

    Need more advice in cane fight practice

    Thank you so much, these are the kind of videos I really want to see. Real full contact sparring. After I watched the 1st and 3rd video, I wish I can remember more about Judo that I took long time ago. That would really come in handy. Might not be as good as BJJ, but we did do a lot of tuck and...

    That's very good video. That's the kind I like to see. Being aggressive do payoff. I talk about cane here, I never give up bare knuckles at all. Still practicing. Just not a subject here. Wish I am younger, I would go learn BJJ. That's really what I need.
