    If you could master any two MA what would it be?

    Interesting idea. I had not thought of that. Instantly achieving something takes away the effort, and the idea that you have actually achieved anything. Just like infinite life is the same as death. Thank you for helping open doors in my mind

    Donnie Yen... who knew.

    Donnie Yen is incredibley humble. I think it was on the news several months ago that he fractured mike Tyson's finger during the filming of Ip Man 3, which seems like its going to be a pretty epic film. Apparently they are creating a CGI Bruce Lee for it:D

    Flexible weapons - practical?

    How practical are flexible weapons? In particular the rope dart and chain whip. I haven't trained in either but here's my opinion. Trade off between concelibility and damage: while the rope dart's easier to conceal, it does a little less damage then the chain whip, and vice versa But does anyone...

    Power/Speed: personal attributes or dictated by technique of the art?

    Its a mix of both person and style. E.g wing chin is a style that focuses on speed, while hung gar focuses on strength, but it depends on the persons abilities to make it work. As orange lightning said, it is a mix of both the biomechanics of the art and the abilities of the person.

    MT symbol

    Hey I have a question. I'm really interested in how the MartialTalk logo was designed and does it have a deeper meaning? I get the yin yang is to symbolise balance but what about the unicorn and the dragon?

    If you could master any two MA what would it be?

    Two and Two only! I'd go for CCK Taiji mantis and BJJ :) I love the taiji mantis philosophy of speed, precision and sticking to ones opponent, and I like the grappling and groundwork of BJJ:)

    Is it really the person not the style?

    So it's that the more famous a martial art is the more schools there are that teach the art and the more fake or less professional schools there are? So does that means that rarer old styles are more likely to be genuine?

    Is it really the person not the style?

    Good point. But those of similar skill could have a different outcome. I mean yes TKD is a very powerful art but in my mind it seems to be a little impractical. But then again it could be mastered. Then again again any art could be mastered... But could one create ones art and make it work. E.g...

    Is it really the person not the style?

    Then would certain styles be more practical than others? Say for example would krav maga be more practical than tae kwon do in a self defence situation?
  22. Q

    Is it really the person not the style?

    I'm just wondering if its the person not the style, then what's the point of MA? I mean I'm a great fan of MA, but does this mean a person who doesn't train MA but creates their own style could be just as effective as if they did MA training? If not then is it actually that some styles could be...

    Boxing vs Taiji Mantis vs Judo

    This is not to say which style is better This is just to compare the styles and training time For example some styles are more easily learnt while others are more complex. The argument isn't what style is superior. It is more of training less moves with more time and more moves with less time...

    Boxing vs Taiji Mantis vs Judo

    Personally I think Taiji mantis has an advantage as it has both grappling and striking movements, but then again it may take longer to master
