    I wrote this small book on how to make the most of the resources and still get as much potential as possible. It's also my journey from a lookey loo to a fighter and then a trainer in the very first generation of MMA. Not a masterpiece but I'm good with it...

    A book I wrote

    I've mainly been discussing muay thai on here but I'd like to take a minute to self promote. That's not the reason I'm here. Although it took me a long thoughtful process to write it. I haven't promoted it at all. I've published 3 books and had one printed by St. Martins press. It's not...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    I'm familiar with Queensland Muay Thai back to the glory days of JWP. In fact I have a picture of him at my house when he came to do a seminar at my gym. Essentally, what I'm saying is your question is NO, if you want to fight muay thai train at a MT gym. If you want to fight MMA, train at a MMA...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    Well, I'm going to say you are pretty uneducated. The title of your thread just irritated me and the video was not Muay Thai. Dude, the world has known grappling beats striking or smothering beats a boxer. How many fights did you coach have? its silly to waste my time with this argument anymore...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    we can agree to disagree but so your coach fought a muay thai match? did he really? against a real muay thai fighter? did he gain anything except saying, ' Look, I had a MT rules fight and I just smothered the **** out of him, I'm multidimensional' . It may impress the **** out of you but I...

    that and my son is / was a security guard fully insured and compliant with rules of engagement. he got into a fisticuffs with a dangerous felon and took him down and just but pressure on the guy who was turtled up. Guess what? the guy got 30k settlement out of it. Long live America where you can...

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    How realistic is this compared to a gun in the US these days. Gangs used to rob and fight with knives. Stay away from those areas and give the guy your wallet and let him walk away! I would only fight on the street if I had no other option. Not to brag but I could really damage people on the...

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    So even if you are on the ground, you can pull your weapon and put it in the guys gut and empty the clip. Let's not overestimate our abilities in martial arts. Also, when is the last time these days someone was in a knife fight? 1950?

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    I don't know what happened. I don't want to disparage his instructor. They guy he is fighting is obviously a first timer whereas the instructor probably has some fights under his belt. Everything is out of whack by using this video as how to 'beat muay thai' That's like me training Cricket to...

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    A gun at 10 feet is the deadliest weeapon. case closed. If you think you are going to not freeze up when someone pulls on you, you've never had it happen. I have and it scared the **** out of me. If his finger is on the trigger already pulling slack, you can't move fast enough.

    Train in self-defense program, or MMA?

    Most of these 'arts' are pure scams as when they are challenged, they literally get their *** handed to them. Outside of weapons MMA, bjj and striking ARE the best self defense system. You can always add weapons training. Sorry. I went thru the same thing but found the truth when time after time...

    here is a fight between two Muay Thai fighters who engage in quite a bit of clinching and watch the ref. Especially if the clinch is against the ropes.

    Well, I can tell you that some parents have their 12 year olds who are studs burnt out from travelling and wrestling over 100 matches a year. And the parents are 'wrestling' Dads driving their kids to hate the sport and by the time they get to high school they are not wrestling any more or doing...

    That's strange, my son and almost every area in the metro has a youth wrestling club but if you don't then yes, Judo or bjj would be good. One of my good friend's son won his state championship this year with a judo move. So, he has boxed as an amateur, wrestled and done BJJ and wrestling. He's...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    The ref is a MMA ref so clinching to him means a wrestling based form of clinching. A typical MMA mentality is I'll just clinch him so he can't hit me then throw him. In the first and third round he simply held the guy in the corner for way too long. The idea is action of clinch technique. Your...

    From that fight, he doesn't know how to ref muay thai. Those clinches were horrible and would have been broken up by a ref who understood his job in as a referee regarding the clinch. Watch the examples of Thais and the clinch.

    If I were to take a kid and build him into a MMA fighter I would first put him in wrestling then boxing then bjj and muay thai. All done seperately and in their own context. In my own journey this is what I did back in the 90's and early 2000's because there were no good MMA gyms at the time. I...

    Teaching MMA as Muay Thai

    While I appreciate what you are saying, that referee had no idea how to referee a fight. I didn't see a single instance of a muay thai clinch. I suspect that was your coaches mma approach. In muay thai, throwing and smothering into the ropes is broken up because no work can be done. I know it's...

    Muay Thai and Boxing

    Here is a very good fight. Rodtang has a winning percentage of fights in Thailand. If you are at or above 75 percent of your wins, you are doing good, not like boxing here and being undefeated. Thais fight so often that it is not ucommon for a 22-25 year old to have 200 plus fights. People say...
