    To slap or not to slap?

    I don't slap...but then again the first place I learnt how to break fall was in pro wrestling. I couldn't find to much of a differents from slapping and not slapping. I could put my arms around myself, almost like me giving myself a hug, do a breakfall and still feel the same as if I put my...

    Adaptability in your grappling

    A combo of both. Two of the teachers are bouncers so they know how most people fight in bars. They do teach some street valuable things but the main focus is on sport which is good for me because thats what I mostly use my grappling for.

    How long before a MMA fight do you take the gi off?

    I've heard a lot of people tell me that they train with a gi on all the time and only take it off a few weeks up to their MMA fight. I'm hopeing this doesn't go into a no gi vs gi debate. I'm just wondering how long people who train in gi's take them off before a fight or if they even take...

    War is a normal part of centralized political systems. In uncentralized political systems (eg hunter and gathers) war happens a lot less. Where populations are small, food surplus absent, property owership minimal, and state organized doesn't exist, the likelihood of organized violence by one...

    Any bad feelings after a fight?

    Thanks for the congratations! I fought on a card where it was all exhibition matches so this card didn't have that much hype as others do. As a result it was mostly friends and family of the fighters who heard of the card and came to the show. I thought it would be better to have my first fight...

    Any bad feelings after a fight?

    I fought tonight in my first MMA match. When I looked at who I was fighting I knew I had to kept the match standing up because he was great on the ground. So for a week leading up to the fight I kept on saying to myself and everyone else who I talked to about the fight that it was going to end...

    Kicking- High or Low?

    Low kicks, I love the cut kick. Great for breaking someone down. I like punches more so I want my kicks to be quick and low risk. I use a very simple method for my kicks, once of the few differents between the way I box and kickbox is simply that I throw the kick on the end of most of the...

    Verbal lessons to defuse situtions?

    I worked as a bouncer for some time. Different situtions need different approaches. Sometimes listening to the person is all it takes for things not to get out of hand. Other times people are just looking for a fight. I've had people throw punches if I looked at them the wrong way. One thing...

    Taking a break from Martial Arts

    I took a break from my dojo because well...I'm a broke student. Also because of me moving the travel time to get to the dojo would take a very long time. I never wanted to give up MA so I started searching for other schools closer to me. My roomate is friends with a BB so when we want to...

    Ken Shamrock vs Bas Rutten

    Very cool way of getting into a knee bar. After that fight I believe Bas trained on that knee bar and tapped another guy out in a fight a short time later. I have a video of Bas teaching the same knee bar, it's a very good surpized move that relies a lot on speed.

    The Myth of Relaxing in Training

    It's important to use more energy in wrestling. Without any gi on I can jump over someones guard, pull out of an arm bar easyer, etc. However with a gi on I would need to use a lot more techinque to get where I wanted to be. While pulling out of an arm bar with a ton of force is a good skill...

    UFC Hall of Fame... Who's next?

    IMO a hall of fame inside of the UFC is very bias so I don't take it seriously at all. If there was a MMA hall of fame outside of the UFC then it would be a different story. This hall of fame does have the chance of making money if done right. The question should be NOT who has made the...

    Sleeping patterns

    Lisa, What do you mean by "wired"? Do you mean that you can't shut off your thoughts? If so, one thought triggers the cortical part of the brain which triggers the subcortical part. The subcortical part triggers the cortical part again and so on. This is a bad cycle because the more time the...

    Sleeping patterns

    It's only when the cycle is at the REM stage that you feel alert upon waking. However if you've only been sleeping two hours and are in REM and wake up, you will feel alert for a little while but you will soon be tired and groggy. If you sleep 9 hours or more your time in REM increases. While...

    I must not be the only one in this kind of a situation on the fourm. I'm sure other people have diseases that have to be fought off.

    Everything is slowly getting better. The doctor said my thinking patten was doing great which I think is from going to school and reading books all day. My cardio is still pretty bad, I can't even walk up stairs without being out of breath. The doctor said it this was a pretty big shock to my...

    As some of you know I'm a bouncer, it's not the easyest job in the world. Last week I was trying to talk a guy into givening me his beer because he was drinking it illegelly.

    Questions on Catch wrestling

    The funny thing about catch is that rules change for the enjoyment of the crowd, just like how today the NHL makes new rules to draw new people. Catch wrestling was a spectator sport first and for most in the 1800's, therefore it was like any other sport of today where the enterainment was...
