    Jiu jitsu

    So I've been doing my kickboxing and karate for a while but I feel like trying out some jiu jitsu just to say I've tried at the very least. I've got 2 options. One is a Gracie Barra academy which is a respected place with classes 7 days a week in gi, no gi and mma. The prices are 瞿40 a month...

    Chael sonnen vs Tito Ortiz

    So we had titos millionth retirement fight and he easily beat sonnen. It's what I expected. Sonnen is a small light heavyweight who's off his trt so he looked in not so good shape and he's always had garbage submission defence and Tito is a big light heavyweight. Not really a big fan of either...

    Different advice

    Okay this Is something I've noticed quite a bit since I restarted kenpo just before Christmas after not doing for 5 years. But in my club most of the club are high level belts. The head instructors a 7th dan, the 2nd in command is a 4th, there's 2 third dans, a first dan and a second dan. Not...

    Matt Serra talks self defence

    I saw this video just now and I found it interesting. Serra handled that situation well from what he said. He could've been all mouthy to the guy but if it happened how he said it did then he did the right thing. He had the confidence to tell the guy to be careful whereas some would just do...

    Ronda rousey sparring partner interview

    There's been a lot of talk about rousey not sparring. But apparently she did. She was sparring with racquel Pennington but she refuse to say about it because rousey made her sign a non disclosure agreement. That shows more of her immaturity and she obviously wasn't sparring well or she'd have at...

    2 man set

    Last night we spent the majority of the lesson doing 2 man set and going over it. I kmow these kinds of set are controversial in kenpo but I think it's a very good set which is fun to do and teaches you about how to move around an opponent and flow with their attacks and it works on your...

    How the martial arts has changed and helped me

    Since its New Years soon I thought I'd reflect a bit. I was thinking about my life (don't worry I didn't depress myself to much lol) jokes aside I was thinking about my life before martial arts. I never hated my old life, never felt miserable or bored but I knew there wasn't anything speacial...

    Hearing problems

    So I have had a cold for a couple weeks and I'd just started getting over it and I thought it was gone so I did some martial art practice. Not sparring or any contact just forms and there was a weird feeling in my ear but it went quickly. But I woke up last night and couldn't hear out my right...

    Martial art movies breakdown

    So I was going to put this in general martial arts but I know some people don't like the idea of putting movie stuff here. But anyway this YouTube is of a martial artist breaking down movie fights and talking about the martial art choreography and explains the good and bad parts and also does...

    Boxing buddy toy

    So I for some reason remembered something I had when I was very young before I did any training. It was a boxing buddy basically it was a shape of a guy and their were circles which lit up on him and when they lit up you hit it and you keep hitting it until the buddy's head bounces up high...

    Jason Thacker

    So for any people who have seen TUF 1 they'll know Jason Thacker who had the rep of the worst guy on the show. Got kicked off before fighting then got destroyed by chris Leben then disappeared. This article is a guy who meets up with him and it talks about his life and his training. It's a...

    New perspective on training

    So I've been doing kenpo again for about 3 months now and I've realised my priorities and perspectives on training martial arts have changed. At first it was all about fitness and power and speed and just punches and kicks but now because of kenpo it's more than that. I still enjoy doing fitness...

    Bad training session

    Wow I just had a terrible session. Not from my own school but a friend asked me to come check out a gym she was thinking of joining so I went along and it's a huge space with some bags and a ring. It's a Muay Thai gym by the way. But anyway the instructor was about 5'2 and must've been about 25...

    The biggest loser

    Awesome just saw on my TV guide that there's a new series of the biggest loser USA starting tomorrow. Now I know for Americans its probably very old now but over here we don't get it until years in advance. I love watching that type of show because it shows the strength and determination and the...

    Awesome training tonight

    So tonigh there wasn't as many people as normal only 8 of us (normally get around 15-30 people) so instead of doing the normal focus mitt class it was a full hour of sparring drills. Normally we do sparring drills for about 15 minutes to half an hour due to the time we can have the gym because...

    Martial arts style v style rant

    I was thinking what to call this thread and this isn't my rant its off a YouTube video I saw I know the title of the video says boxer vs wing chun but the end bit is very important he's 100% right. A question he's asked is would he challenge someone saying a boxer would beat a wing chun guy and...

    New training schedule

    So after about 3 or 4 years out I've started training American kenpo again. I'm really enjoying it. It's not as fast paced as kickboxing and there's no way it burns as many calories and gets you as fit but it's still very fun and you learn a lot of different things. Right now I'm training 5 days...

    Rousey retiring soon

    So ronda rousey has said ufc 207 will be one of her last fights. It's not surprising really considering how close she was to finishing after losing to holm. I reckon if she loses next fight she's done she'll walk away. If she wins I reckon there's a very good chance she'll walk away anyway since...

    Karate kid- sweep the leg mentality

    So in the movie karate kid anyone who's seen it knows the most famous scene is where kreese says to johnny sweep the leg as he knows his leg is injured and that's seen as a terrible thing to say and such a bad thing even martial artists who I know say he was wrong to say that. But to me why was...

    Music in martial arts

    Today I watched the mma movie warrior and the mma trainer used music to help his fighters visualise and plan their strategies. Now I know it's a movie but I also saw as an extra for the movie a hour long documentary with Greg Jackson who they modelled it on and he says he uses a lot of classical...

    Thinking of returning to Kenpo

    So I know i had some bad experiences with kenpo in the past which I've shared here but I've always loved th style and I still practice the moves and the forms but I've seen a new school has opened up and the instructor is a 7th dan with a good reputation and good students. So I'm thinking of...

    Free standing punch bag

    So I've finally purchased from amazon a free standing punch bag. I know it's not as good as a heavy bag but I haven't got the space for one. I decided on the golds gym ones as it was cheap 瞿99.99 compared to others which were around 200 and I've used the gold gym ones before at my old karate...

    Rousey returning

    So it's just been announced ronda rousey is fighting for the title in December. I honestly don't believe she'll win she got exposed in her last fight and she's still training with the same team and now her aura is gone and nunes is no joke. Rousey is quite a mentally weak person she even admits...

    Randy couture vs dan Henderson

    Now this is obviously a theoretical match as couture is well retired now and Henderson retired last night but its always been a fight that interested me. Both good wrestlers with decent boxing and they used to train together. I think they had a falling out at one stage if I remember right from...
