Well for now the idea behind training once a week is, I get good enough with stick fighting that if i ever needed to use a sick to fight. I would have a advantige over someone with no stick fighting training. When i said arts a i plan on mastering i mean threw my whole life.

"I would have a advantige over someone with no stick fighting training. "

Thats the key right there. Theres also nothing wrong with getting a broad exposure early on, working on 2 now, and later on once you've gotten some level of proficiency at those, expanding out and filling in the gaps you see.

I watched Rich and Ace go at it back in December.... was -very- interesting to see, especially when the stick started to go to pieces. :)

Both of em took me to my current limits when I spared with em.... next time Rich...try n work up a sweat, huh? :D

:asian:

Judo-Kid,

Your comments are worthy for your whole life to try and master multiple styles.

Kaith,

I will try to break a sweat next time. :D Maybe I will sweat more of the sticks become sabres????


Train Well

Arnisador,

I love hockey, any sport that has two blades a stick and allows fighting with only a 2 minute minor and a 10 minute major, has to be GREAT! :D

Just My Thoughts on that subject! ;)

Good luck Judo Kid. However I have to agree with the point that the UFC and mastery are two very different things.

Hey,

This thread was originally about mastery. One of the components of mastery is following up on things. One of the the most important parts of honest discussion is being honest about your facts and truthful about your sources. I asked a question that checked the credibility of one Judo-kid's sources. He still hasn't delivered. He was supposed to give an answer on Thursday last week. He gave an excuse why he couldn't. He said he would do it this week. Well here we are with no answers yet.

By excusing Judo-kid of the responsibility of backing up what he says, you do him a disservice. When I asked what style of Eskrima he was studying, he didn't know. When I asked him who his teacher's teacher was, he didn't know a fundamental fact about his lineage. Actually, he didn't even bother with a cogent response until I said I didn't believe him. How's he supposed to master anything, if he doesn't even know that those things are important?

All I'm doing is making somebody put their money where their mouth is. One of the problems today in the martial arts is that hooligans and fakes can pass off bs credentials and people buy it mainly because they don't ask questions like the ones I did. It brings down the MA's as a whole and causes people to pay money to charlatans to learn watered down mcdojo styles, making these types of deceptions profitable. It causes people to pay for someone to instill in them a false sense of security and a false sense of history.

I know you're tired of this thread. I am too. But the value of following up on this principle is more important than weariness over this discussion.

So Judo-kid, got any answers yet?

I understand all that.......But did we really have to waste 21 pages repeating ourselves when all it would take was one answer! :confused:
