    Modern Day JKD

    I have been wondering if what is JKD, has any bearing on what Bruce Lee originally set out? From what I have read of him, he was always looking to innovate and streamline, or at least tweak some things. Exactly what I am not entirely sure, but in today's world, has JKD moved on and been added...

    Me Again

    Hi all, Just thought I would do another meet and greet. October 2017 I met the love of my life, and going to be putting that ring on the finger, but the most fundamental thing so far is that she sobered me up with love. She is an angel that at 46 I thought had alluded me life. I manged to...

    Wing Chun and Knee Support

    Would like some oppions on knee supports if possible. Before I go ahead and buy one, do any of you peeps use a knee support with brace while practicing and if it inhibits stance? If not one with a brace, any other recommendations. Used to have a neoprene support, but frankly thought if felt more...

    Superbowl 51

    Really looking forward to this. Reckon this is going to be a high scoring game. As much as I admire the Patriot machine, I would like to see the Falcons win this. Either way, I hope both teams bring thier A game and just fight without yellow flags.

    Global Fandom

    This may step a little close, but not meant to cause offence. I like the Steelers and the Penguin's as a favourite set of teams in the NFL and NHL. But I am not a fan as I was not born in Pittsburgh, nor am I likely to see them live. Now while I am not Liverpool born, I am an Evertonian through...

    Carrie Fisher

    Really not sure why this has hit me hard, I am really having trouble accepting she has gone. Not sure about you lot, but to me Carrie was incredible. Gone too soon, and will be much celebrated by me. Oh my, gone far too soon. RIP, and I'm sure that you are raising hell beyond the rim

    Interesting Vid

    Well at least I thought so. It is long, but worth watching if you have a lazy afternoon or on the night shift or whatever. I don't who the author is, but highlighting Emil Martirossian from 19:40 or so, think the author knows his stuff. Mind you though, there was not much expansion on the kind...

    Deep Water

    I like my cop shows. Watching Deep Water on BBC Four. A good watch so far. Seen a few Australian cop shows over the years, but this is pretty good. Recommend a watch :)

    Counter Balance Issues With Balance

    Hey all. I been thinking about my balance issues, due to my skeletal adnomaillties at birth. Anyway, long form of thoughts, but I won't waffle on. My right foot has a overarching middle of the foot. What this translates for me, is that I have around a cm to a half, of less surface area. For...

    Phillip Bayer

    After his unfortunate accident and life changing injury, I wonder if any member around here, has seen him in action. I wonder with the loss of his hand, has much of his Wing Chun had to be adapted. Or would it be the case that some moves would be just left out. Chain punching for an obvious one...

    Perception Of A Street Fight

    I have seen a fair amount of threads talking about street fights, with myriad solutions. My street fighting perception comes from being bullied and so on. As an adult, I quickly learnt that the term "Street Fight" pretty much alludes to nothing. It is applied to the darker side of humanity...

    Terry Wogan

    A Brit institution rather shockingly passed on yesterday. Immense presence on both radio and TV for decades. It was Terry who made the Eurovsion Song Contest watchable. Thoughts go out to his wife and family.

    Klitschko Vs Fury

    I am looking forward to the slaughter, problem is that the boxer I see on the floor is Fury. I know this sounds nasty, but does Fury actually have a chance in your opinions?

    Training Mask

    Thought I would ask on here as there seems to be split opinions on whether mask like the one in the vid work. Initially I thought there would be some heightened oxygen levels being absorbed. Apparently though that is not the case. Jerome Pena is on a reduced supply. Some of you may have seen to...

    It will out stock before I can get it, but what do you members think. Is this a decent bag? Have seen another that has grabs on the top so you practice knees, but not sure, this or traditional slung bag do you think? Century XXL Wavemaster Freestanding Punch Bag Black Sports Outdoors

    I have been through quite a few of the UFC/MMA portals online, mainly ones indexed by Google, when I hear of some of the big bouts come up. Thing is though, I would like to be able to watch fully live on a safe site. I have used (cough) sites to watch footy and what not, but can someone...

    Overhand Right!

    Don't use this one, or at least did not use this one, preferred a straight right. Those of you that fought at competition level, how do you, or did, employ this particular punch? Really interested in hearing some stories if I may.

    Jack Johnson

    Recent thread activity reminded me that I wanted to delve further into the Jack Johnson life story, but not one of applied fiction. The service station incident pretty unforgivable, but the times were the times. Thinking that some of the old timers might know if the following author would write...

    From Wiki Regardless of its origins, the nunchaku was not a popular weapon, since no known traditional kata (choreographed practice movements) for it exist, possibly as a result of its lack of efficacy against contemporary weapons such as the katana. Picking up on the 5 year old doing his...

    Steven "freddie roach"

    Had one of those moments when Facebook actually throws you a tasty bone. Anyway while reading through Wiki, I realised that I had heard the name before.
