anyone practice Krav Maga? I've recently began taking lessons

Deleted User 2018-06-04 04:52:54

I took a little bit of it years ago

Deleted User 2018-06-04 04:53:16

It was just basic combatives though

Tyler0317 2018-06-04 04:53:20

Its jooish, bruh

Tyler0317 2018-06-04 04:53:26
Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-04 04:56:21

@Tyler0317 It was officially "created" by an Israeli, yeah, but it's also practical and largely based on boxing and wrestling (which are actual European martial arts)

Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-04 04:56:42

I try to remove myself from the context haha

Tyler0317 2018-06-04 04:57:27

I also have a deeper intellectual criticism of Krav, but i'm in bed atm.

Tyler0317 2018-06-04 04:57:48

I'll walk thru the idea tomorrow

Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-04 04:58:14

sure, goodnight

Deleted User 2018-06-04 09:56:42

they teach it up at my gym. It looks pretty brutal. My only practical problem with it is that you can't play full contact with it

Punisher 2018-06-05 03:51:15

(With keeping server rules in mind) I think that ... we forget how brutal we need to be or not be In a confrontation....If the brutality of Krav Maga is needed in a given situation then I’m not using extremities to inflict said brutality.... I’m going to my “toolbox” that I’ve brought with me to the dance. If by some chance I don’t have said tools and I only have my extremities... mma works. I studied Krav ... “no rules mma” .... ya know ... fighting

Tyler0317 2018-06-05 03:54:24

My critisicm of Krav is:
1- You cannot spar
As eye gouges and kicks to the groin are unpracticable with peers
2-There is no competitive opportunity. No Krav tournaments that I am aware of
3-It's ✡ ish

@Tyler0317 All fair points

Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-05 21:22:33

my instructor is pretty cool, and shows me a lot of techniques from true European wrestling

Punisher 2018-06-06 06:12:04

If it doesn’t involve lemon scented oil and wrastlin it ain’t worth the tits on a 🐗 boar.

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 03:35:28

@Aleis⊕ccidentalis Have you heard of catch wrestling?

Pardon me for my soapbox, catch wrestling has been an interest of mine for the past 18 months or so.

Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-07 03:40:57

@Tyler0317 I haven't ever heard of that. Do you have any good links that explain what it is? Or can you?

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 03:51:31

My apologies to the other observers for my tangent.

When the "modern" olympics resumed in 1896, the sports were recomposed. Wrestling by historic rules was won by submission OR by pin.

Modern wrestling ruleset was made more sporting, with victories by pin or by points.

Once upon a time, what is now called Catch Wrestling(catch meaning 'Submission' in English of the time) was normal wrestling. Teddy Roosevelt, and Brigham Young were known to be enthusiastic Catch Wrestlers in their time.

Have you heard of Crying "uncle"? This was the way one verbally submitted in wrestling. Much like the now ubiquitous tapout of modern BJJ.

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 03:53:55

Catch Wrestlers became famous at carnivals in the early 1900s, and several of them branched out into Pro Wrestling, Promoters learned the value of having choregraphed matches, and the PRO Wrestling(Hulk Hogan) of our era descends from this alteration of the art of wrestling.

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 03:56:59

Ironically, Several wrestlers of the early 1900's ended up in Japan, where fight tournaments were a big ticket. Men like Karl Gotch made a name for themselves beating Japs, leading to European wrestling becoming a widely valued martial art in Japan. Called Shoot Wrestling, shoot being slang for "real" as opposed to fake pro wrestling.

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 04:00:42

The modern MMA promotion Shooto comes from "Shoot wrestling" in Japan.

Just like how foreign and exotic influences became fashionable in America(Karate, Tae Kwon Do,, BJJ), European wresting became fashionable in Japan, Kazushi Sakuraba being a notable descendant of Catch Wresting, and defeating 4 different members of the famous Gracie BJJ family.

Tyler0317 2018-06-07 04:05:14

--- My overall point being, Europe had it's own martial art, Catch Wrestling, which is of equal or greater standing to the more popular grappling arts of today, BJJ/Judo. We ought to be proud of it, and I hope that we are able to perpetuate our own martial art into the future, rather than BJJ.

Tangent complete. Thank you for your patience.

Some links to follow.@Aleis⊕ccidentalis

JesseJames 2018-06-08 14:27:49

Although I have never studied it I have been fasciated by catch wrestling myself because of the same reasons you listed @Tyler0317 as well as because of my fandom of pro wrestling as a kid and the cross over that used to exist.

Deleted User 2018-06-08 20:49:40

@Tyler0317 I may have already said this but I think BJJ came more from catch wrestling styles in vale tudo than it did from tradionall JJ

Tyler0317 2018-06-09 02:06:01

@Deleted User mma/vale tudo has certainly had a positive effect on bjj. Keeping it rooted in practicality and effectiveness.

BJJ never had a weird kung fu death touch phase.

Punisher 2018-06-09 16:19:12

@Tyler0317 hey brother ... i’ve been training BJJ for over 10 years… And I really enjoyed the above comments you made about how catch wrestling is “our European martial art.” I have never thought of it that way. I’ve been training shoot- boxing for eight years solid (simultaneously) and it’s very similar to what you are describing but again I must admit that the ethnic component (tradition) was lost on me until now. Good looking out. I look forward to more passionate posts about this.

Tyler0317 2018-06-09 20:04:53

@Punisher 👍🏼

Tyler0317 2018-06-09 20:10:04

I need to take my own advice. Catch wrestling doesn't exist in my state, which I suppose is an opportunity for someone like me to make it happen.

I competed in amateur MMA for a few years, but can't really claim to be an actual martial artist.
The specialized skillset, passing down the tradition and philosophies really appeals to me.

That is something BJJ does way better than western martial arts.

Reinhard Wolff 2018-06-09 23:34:35

Carlos and Helio were White.

Reinhard Wolff 2018-06-09 23:35:36

Helio also sounds like a traditionalist or fascist here.

Gaius Mucius Scaevola 2018-06-11 13:57:04

How do you guys do your solo martial arts practice? Where do you put it in your workout routine?

Tyler0317 2018-06-11 19:07:53

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola I do bag drills after my workout.

I've found that cardio after the workout reduces the DOMS(muscle soreness) the following day.

Aleis⊕ccidentalis 2018-06-11 20:18:55

@Tyler0317 That's some great history. I'd like to learn it myself or teach it to my kids. It's disappointing that many Whites don't realize that we have our own history of martial arts, and they think it is something unique to only Asian countries.

Tyler0317 2018-06-11 21:25:28

@Aleis⊕ccidentalis Yeah, I thought that martial arts were rampant in Asia, but we westerners seem far more interested in this stuff than they are. I was in the Philippines for awhile, and never could find a Kali school, but western Boxing schools abounded.

I follow a Youtuber who started an MMA school in China, who points out that essentially no Chinese do Kung Fu any more. It's just a historical curiosity for them.


Tyler0317 2018-06-11 21:36:42

@Aleis⊕ccidentalis As for catch wrestling, the only instructor/affiliate system that I know of is CSW Combat Submission Wrestling, run by Erik Paulson.

BryceB-ND 2018-07-08 04:58:42

Rematch should be good though

Tyler0317 2018-07-08 22:54:22

I'm not surprised. Cormier is genuinely the total package.

There may not be a rematch, with Lesnar somehow being thrust into contention.

Anyone here box? What brand of gloves do you use for bag work? It seems like everything under $100 is Pakistani made and uses the same pattern.

Deleted User 2018-07-10 14:54:10

I don't use gloves for bag work

Deleted User 2018-07-10 14:59:46

@Svat - NY I use fairtex

Deleted User 2018-07-10 15:04:16

I kind of would go against using gloves, to train your fist strength

Deleted User 2018-07-10 15:34:37

Don’t not wear bag gloves. Believe me when I tell you that the long term trauma to your joints and wrists will have you regretting that decision in a few short years. My hands are in a constant state of inflammation. I have several bone spurs. My wrists need constant massaging.

I mean, I don't go 100% by any means

Deleted User 2018-07-10 16:31:40

but I'm also throwing in combos and kicks/knees/elbows

Deleted User 2018-07-10 16:31:56

so its not exclusively handwork

Deleted User 2018-07-10 16:32:12

but by the end of the session I have 0 pain whatsoever

Svat - NY 2018-07-10 16:58:03

Planning on the gloves. "Toughening up" ones hands is not worth a lifetime of pain and easy re injuries.

Deleted User 2018-07-10 17:31:59

The first thing people break in a fight is their hands.

Deleted User 2018-07-10 17:33:02

Also, as I mentioned, I'm not going 100%, am painfree, and have been doing this for about a year now.

Deleted User 2018-07-10 17:34:08

🙄 Do what you will though

Deleted User 2018-07-10 17:37:02

@Deleted User How hard did you used to go on bag work?

Deleted User 2018-07-10 17:37:45

I'm not trying to second guess you or your experience, just adding my own.

Deleted User 2018-07-10 18:02:55

@Deleted User not overly hard, but I’ve probably done it for a much longer time than you have. That said, my hands were hurting in maybe my second or third year

Tyler0317 2018-07-12 02:33:53

@Svat - NY @Deleted User Agreed.

I fractured my right pinky in sparring while wearing MMA gloves.

My pinky is now crooked and my knuckle is double the size of the others from the calcium deposit.

You don't want crooked fingers! Wear bag gloves! 😉

Robtheroman 2018-07-14 21:02:51

Yeah I agree with @Tyler0317 definitely get bag gloves I use 16oz and double wrap my hands. And when sparring I use 12oz. Ringside are well made gloves but pricey.

Robtheroman 2018-07-14 21:03:07

Most important is to wrap your hands right

Robtheroman 2018-07-14 21:03:33

I didn't for the first years I got into it and today I can feel it

Tyler0317 2018-07-14 22:03:32

When teaching others I point out that 'Humans aren't built to punch'.

If we were, we'd have bony clubs for hands. Our hands are relatively brittle, and comprised of ~20 small bones.

Our hands are built for dexterity, for fine motor skills, for grasping.

While striking can be effective, precautions must be taken.

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-08-18 15:17:17

Something is better than nothing. You should always pick the place that's easiest to form a habit of going to. Too many people focus really hard on the style of martial art, when the reality is knowing and training any martial art puts you above someone who has never trained. Check it out, it looks legit from what I read

Punisher 2018-10-08 02:34:54

So... a buddy (of ours) who I’ve trained BJJ with for over a decade (he actually red pilled me) and I are putting together a “mma” system of self defense.... for example ... we want to focus on self defense that is applicable without wraps and gloves (we’re avoiding a lot of hooks and knock out power strikes… We are keeping our hands lateral when striking) .... techniques that are usable in real life situations... that avoids going to the ground and playing a strategic Brazilian jujitsu game for over 30 minutes… Because as we all know getting kicked in the head doesn’t feel very good… So we are working a system that involves lots of elbows, knees, head butts and big body mechanics… I encourage everyone to look at the Marine Corps martial arts program… Or simply called MCMAP @Deleted User .… I bring it up because I would really like some input from all of you… Techniques and strategies that you all think are important to incorporate etc.… i am absolutely open to all styles even though we are leaning more wrestling, boxing-ish....I’d like to streamline this curriculum... write it down and distribute it .....and make it accessible for our wives, girlfriends(hope they don’t meet) and children...
Input appreciated...

I'm conflicted on MCMAP

Tyler0317 2018-10-09 01:50:06

I liked it a ton, but then got into MMA after leaving the .mil,,, SO much of the basic self-defense stuff doesn't work well against other skilled dudes.

Tyler0317 2018-10-09 01:52:15

We are then left at that eternal crossroads,

-Do we train to defeat skilled opponents, because those techniques are 'tried and true'.
-Do we train to win as quickly as possible against the most likely(unskilled) opponent.

Tyler0317 2018-10-09 02:07:43

@Rogue The issue with Krav is it's is unspar-able

I don't know of a way to train groin kicks and eye gouges with a sparring partner, lol.

Deleted User 2018-10-09 21:19:05

@Punisher @Tyler0317 Okay, so having had some time to think about it, my first suggestion is defense on your feet. Literal defense. Fighting withdrawal, defending while back-pedaling, defending haymakers; basically, the art of getting out of there while being attacked (sometimes by multiple opponents) without turning your back

Punisher 2018-10-09 21:21:11

Yes Will. Agreed. Have you ever looked into the idea of “stacking” opponents?

Deleted User 2018-10-10 20:11:23

but it's just a decent sized wooden octagon with dry dirt ground

@Deleted User gagaball... no relation to "Lady" Gaga.

Popular at YMCA camps.
By magnitudes the most injury-causing activity.

Wood-Ape - OK/MN 2018-10-10 21:18:45

Get twenty fifth-graders in there and that octogon becomes barely distinguishable from a Nigerian street fight

@Deleted User @Punisher I'm home for the evening.

Give me a holla when y'all are free to talk.

@Deleted User hey boss I’m at work..... is 6:30 my time too late?

Deleted User 2018-10-10 23:04:39

That’s 9:30 my time - I can handle that I think.

BryceB-ND 2018-11-20 03:25:44

Finished my on boarding for the martial arts gym tonight. Can hit up class everyday now, psyched

BryceB-ND 2018-11-20 03:25:48

Damn what a workout

Will - MD 2018-11-20 13:57:37

@BryceB-ND What kind of martial arts?

BryceB-ND 2018-11-20 17:09:48

Muay thai and bjj

Will - MD 2018-11-20 23:43:38

awesome. the twin pillars of ass-kickin'

BryceB-ND 2018-11-22 17:26:08

It's awesome Will, and I finally understand why you do that funny dance in Muay Thai haha

BryceB-ND 2018-11-22 17:26:25

Sore ! Being up on your toes like that kills your calfs. Loving it so far. Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Will - MD 2018-11-23 13:41:50

haha yeah the old muay thai march

BryceB-ND 2018-11-27 01:50:06

First night sparring tonight after tough cardio. Got my ass handed to by one of the instructors. Can definitely say I learned more in those 10 minutes than in 2 lessons lol

Reinhard Wolff 2018-11-29 07:57:06

Nice! There’s nothing like sparring/training in general.

BryceB-ND 2018-11-30 01:09:06

Absolutely. It can be daunting but I would recommend anyone who isnt training currently to at least give it a go.

Sam Anderson 2018-12-03 09:05:43

Royce Gracie basically beats this Asian blob of fat by using his legs to triangle the dudes arm.

Wood-Ape - OK/MN 2018-12-03 10:01:37

The early UFCs were wild. "Street Fighter" / "Enter the Dragon" type all comers tournaments of different styles. For better or worse (truth is always bittersweet), the BJJ/Muay Thai (and similar wrestling+boxing type training sets) empirically proved themselves mostly superior.

Pride was nuts

Rogue 2018-12-03 11:26:04

Best strat? Kick 'em in the head.

Deleted User 2018-12-03 20:57:12

Pride soccer kicks were nasty

Deleted User 2018-12-03 20:57:44

or if you we're bas rutten or Andy hug, kick em in the leg for a KO lol

Sam Anderson 2018-12-07 06:46:07

Best part about losing the mouse for my laptop is that instead of vidya I just watch old mma vids

Pat-MA 2018-12-22 03:31:13

Did anyone see the wrestling referee who made the black kid cut his dreadlocks? Could that have given him an advantage?

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-12-22 03:51:43

They are unsanitary. Some refs are specific about a lot of stuff. More commonly no beards or long nails

Will - MD 2018-12-24 00:03:24

He didn't make him cut his dreadlocks. He said your hair is out of regs and you cant wrestle so the kid had someone cut his dreadlocks

BigBadSaxon - ID 2018-12-24 00:33:00

Makes sense, I cant imagine he would force him to cut them

Mark Vandal 2019-01-05 15:08:58

Would you guys reccomend boxing as a legitimate thing to get into versus more modern mma? Always wanted to learn legit boxing.

Will - MD 2019-01-05 19:27:13
Will - MD 2019-01-05 19:27:18

Boxing's great.

Will - MD 2019-01-05 19:27:40

Jocko Willink has it as the third best martial art in the world, behing BJJ and Wrestling.

Will - MD 2019-01-05 19:28:58

Just be sure to learn how to defend takedowns.

Deleted User 2019-01-05 22:54:11

+1 for BJJ

Will - MD 2019-01-06 01:53:20

Beautiful kimura

Will - MD 2019-01-06 01:53:45

(and, of course, why is it always black guys)

Fred X - NJ 2019-02-05 02:20:37

Looking to get into BJJ. Was a first degree black belt in karate at 11 and quit before my 2nd degree test because of football in high school 🙄that was half my life ago. There’s a Renzo Gracie school right by me in NJ. Anyone up in this area that does BJJ?

Sam Anderson 2019-02-05 05:33:17

@Fred X - NJ I believe Brunswick does BJJ

Sam Anderson 2019-02-05 05:33:30

And Gracies BJJ is a great way to start

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-05 07:01:33

A number of us do

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-05 07:02:00

Everyone should have some basic striking and grappling experience at the very least

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-05 07:02:18

For self-defense, of course.

Fred X - NJ 2019-02-05 13:36:40

@Sam Anderson @Reinhard Wolff thank you both. Keep you posted on the journey.

Fred X - NJ 2019-02-15 00:14:45

I’m looking to attend this to spectate unless I feel confident enough participating as a beginner white belt. Would anyone else be interested in spectating as well?

Fred X - NJ 2019-02-15 00:15:22

We can make a BJJ nyc meetup out of it. Maybe go to the event and then do something else as a group with the day.

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-15 04:00:53

I can advertise it on the main server if you'd like. I probably won't compete for a while though.

Fred X - NJ 2019-02-15 14:53:58

We can do that in about a month or so, maybe end of March or beginning of April since it’s some time away. However long people would need to plan for it

Sam Anderson 2019-02-15 16:43:35

Lol every suspect in this vid is black

BryceB-ND 2019-02-20 13:01:39

Got my ass handed to me at M. Thai Monday night. Definitely lights a fire under a person to get better quick when you're getting whooped to not let it happen again.

Ryan -NJ 2019-02-21 03:34:02

I’ve learned a lot by getting beat up. A LOT. 🤣

whiskeytangofoxtrot 2019-02-21 20:19:17

Howdy, gents. I’ve got a quick question, even though I’m sure it’s been debated here before. If I want to start training a martial art discipline, which one should I pursue?

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-21 21:24:07

Go to an MMA gym that offers striking and grappling, try them out and specialize

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-21 21:24:14

But I'd recommend having the basics down for both

Reinhard Wolff 2019-02-21 21:24:26

Striking: Muay Thai and or boxing
Grappling: BJJ

whiskeytangofoxtrot 2019-02-21 22:53:24

Awesome, thanks for the advice.

Ryan -NJ 2019-02-21 23:21:15

@whiskeytangofoxtrot The answer depends on what you want to accomplish. What are your goals?
