Royce Gracie basically beats this Asian blob of fat by using his legs to triangle the dudes arm.
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
Best strat? Kick 'em in the head.
Pride soccer kicks were nasty
or if you we're bas rutten or Andy hug, kick em in the leg for a KO lol
Best part about losing the mouse for my laptop is that instead of vidya I just watch old mma vids
Did anyone see the wrestling referee who made the black kid cut his dreadlocks? Could that have given him an advantage?
They are unsanitary. Some refs are specific about a lot of stuff. More commonly no beards or long nails
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
Makes sense, I cant imagine he would force him to cut them
Would you guys reccomend boxing as a legitimate thing to get into versus more modern mma? Always wanted to learn legit boxing.
Jocko Willink has it as the third best martial art in the world, behing BJJ and Wrestling.
Just be sure to learn how to defend takedowns.
+1 for BJJ
(and, of course, why is it always black guys)
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?
And Gracies BJJ is a great way to start
A number of us do
Everyone should have some basic striking and grappling experience at the very least
For self-defense, of course.
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?
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.
I can advertise it on the main server if you'd like. I probably won't compete for a while though.
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
Lol every suspect in this vid is black
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.
I’ve learned a lot by getting beat up. A LOT. 🤣
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?
Go to an MMA gym that offers striking and grappling, try them out and specialize
But I'd recommend having the basics down for both
Striking: Muay Thai and or boxing
Awesome, thanks for the advice.
