    For those of you who want to learn how to fight outside of sport:

    So you contradict yourself because as you stated mma won't teach these things. It all depends what the person wants out of their training, if they want self defense then they need to become adequate at striking, grappling, (clinches and groundwork) and weapon disarms. Where they acquire these...

    I'm in the same boat as you, I don't understand his point.

    Customized Martial Art for Boxer

    It sounds like you want to go into kickboxing to be honest. Being a boxer for as long as you have you already have a deep understanding of range and footwork, which is honestly one of the most important things when it comes any sort of striking or hybrid art.

    The hatred of boot scooting

    Turning your back is common in point fighting because it's illegal to hit the back, just because it's legal doesn't mean it's not cheesy. This is why people say sport karate and sport bjj aren't actual karate or bjj.

    Lower belts keep kicking me in the groin. Need advice.

    On the few days I forget it are the few days I get hit in the groin, I'd be going back too.

    Block, also pivoting is a great way to avoid groin shots.

    Is getting hit to the head over and over can be dangerous?

    Been to hell and back, I wouldn't recommend it. Feeling a little under the weather atm and hoping its not covid.

    Is getting hit to the head over and over can be dangerous?

    Yes. Getting hit in the head is dangerous. Edit: sorry I didn't notice the thread is from 2017.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    That didn't answer your question at all. I'm getting a David Caradine impression here.

    Why do people think grappling arts always beat striking arts?

    Can you provide a visual example of this?

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    My plan is typically from neutral distance I close the distance using my kicks and punches to get into clinch distance, from clinch I want to bring them to the floor generally using throwing techniques.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    Normal curriculum you would be doing it but I'm going odd of the knowledge he is presenting.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    I doubt he did any randori, sounds like he barely made it beyond white belt just getting into orange.

    Why do people think grappling arts always beat striking arts?

    You're replying to a 5 year old thread? Ok, I've had instances where someone slips and goes down with ease during a clinch so yeah it does happen. Striking is also very methodical and "lucky hits" don't happen, if you got it you either made a mistake, or are "trading" their hit so you can get...

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    Which again isn't self defense. That had little to do with bjj and more of the fact that the gracies had been involved in vale tudo circuits for years which was pretty much mma at the time. Those strikers went against a grappler who had experience dealing with both strikers and grapplers. If...

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    I never said Judo is a complete art. You however said BJJ is.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    Exactly how are BJJ and Wrestling "Complete?" They both lack many useful techniques. Tell me how well a wrestler can throw a spinning back kick. How well can a jujitsero throw a straight?

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    That depends on the kind of Judo you are learning. If it is strictly Olympic Judo which is IJF then no it wouldn't. If it is Kodokan Judo then that is more self defense oriented.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    And in UFC you don't have to worry about awareness of one's surroundings, you don't have to worry about reading a crowd, you'll never have to worry about the possibility of a weapon being pulled on you. So no "UFC" is not good for self defense. If you take up traditional Jujitsu then you would...

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    Do you plan on becoming a UFC fighter? That isn't the topic you originally spoke about. You're talking about self defense training which are completely separate things.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    That's your opinion based on orange belt techniques tops. Again, you know so little about Judo it is impossible for you to make an educated decision.

    A jackhammer is more effective on the street.
