    Recommendations Judo Phildelphia?

    Hi I live in Philadelphia PA and there’s a decent amount of Judo dojo near me. However I’m not interested in Judo as a sport I’m interested in the self defense. Seems like most dojo are competition based. Anyone recommend a dojo in Philly that’s self defense based? Thanks!

    We don't throw straight rights in street fights.

    Most street fights don’t have kicking anyway. That’s why if your slightly skilled you’ll be able to do ok against most opponents. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We don't throw straight rights in street fights.

    It’s very rare in a street fight you’ll come up against a skilled or semi skilled opponent. Most street fight punches are not straight punches and most opponents won’t throw kicks. That’s why even the person who has trained in self defense who is either semi skilled will have an advantage over...

    Right that’s why you’re suppose to be prepared and with your hands out not in a fist. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We don't throw straight rights in street fights.

    A fight is a sudden violent encounter. If you’re in a fight and it’s not sudden you’re probably part of the problem.

    Foreman used that pawing to push his opponent away and / or to create space. He did that against Frazier.

    Traditional Bajiquan martial art

    The Sifu I talked to who told me the curriculum responded to me... “However, as much as I agree with the solid curriculum Grand Master Liu Yun-Qiao had designed back in the 70s, I personally find it a bit too time consuming for today’s world, it would take at least five to ten years before you...

    I Liq Chuan?

    You said it’s not verifiable. Is it possible this art was practiced / taught as a family art but they just didn’t have a name for it.

    Wing Chun Reform

    I believe what the guy in my OP post is trying to get across in his other videos is that pre 1840 or whatever the date is Wing Chun was a short strike art vs modern.

    I Liq Chuan?

    From watching videos of the Russian and Norway seminars seems like they integrate striking and such more. And light sparring with punches and how to apply ILQ with incoming punches. They were also teaching the proper mechanics to strike. The USA videos I don’t much striking and kicking but...

    I Liq Chuan?

    Thanks for the reply. I’ve read that Sam’s father created I Liq Chuan from a blend of Taji Chuan and Bagua and maybe a couple other CMA’s. So it’s sort of a modern CMA I talked to the teacher in Philly and he was a Taiji and Hsing I practitioner for years and in the last 4-5 years he practices...

    You still need a period of time to initiate a Fa Jin strike though. You still space.

    Traditional Bajiquan martial art

    Update this is what I found out about the ‘training’ before learning Bajiquan. It was developed by Grand Master Liu Yun-Qiao in the 70’s. It’s a traditional way of following the curriculum and training. I actually was talking to another Bajiquan teacher from a school that’s too far from me but...

    Wing Chun and mma.

    Yea he’s rambles too much but has some good points. For instance with Fa Jin. There are people will say that if Fa Jin isn’t in your Taiji then your not practicing Tai Chi. I agree that Fa Jin is the eventual goal but you can learn Taiji to be applicable without Fa Jin. How? By impulse momentum...

    Wing Chun and mma.

    For self defense all you really need are the basics. Learn to evade punches(slipping, parry, blocking etc) and learn how to defend against a takedown and / or basic ground fighting if you happen to get on the ground. Problem I see in TCMA is lack of resistance training.

    Tai Chi Combat Self Defense

    Obviously he had faulce When I practiced Bagua years ago we went to this school in PA. She was a small Chinese woman and we were there to spar with her students. I would say she was in her mid to upper 70’s. Didn’t know we could spar with her. Being young I decided I wanted to spar with her...

    Did Bruce get it right?

    Since you teach and train are you recommending for WC’ers to train with MMA fighters or similar?

    Did Bruce get it right?

    I agree. Shouldn’t finding the right teacher be important too to train like a fighter?

    Tai Chi Combat Self Defense

    All the intelligence in the world means nothing if you don’t have the courage. Many many people who MA intelligence will freeze when the situation arises.

    Tai Chi Combat Self Defense

    I’m not referring to fighting someone in the ring as a sport. But self defense in the real world. Honestly that guy I could tell right away he was scared. Yep I agree. You first need courage. If you ha e courage you can handle yourself somewhat in most situations. Where I grew up there were...
