The gym is fine and all, but if you don't know how to fight, those muscles are a complete waist, and working-out becomes nothing more than a sign of physical insecurity.

2018-01-25 18:57:10 UTC  

Well you need the strength to effectively fight.

2018-01-25 18:57:17 UTC  

Not really...

2018-01-25 18:58:21 UTC  

Judo and BJJ fighters try to keep their bulk down, as do a lot of other fighters.

Some of the best fighters I trained with were in the 150-170 range.

2018-01-25 18:58:42 UTC  

Well you can be very strong at those weights

2018-01-25 18:59:16 UTC  

Having the strength and an intimidating presence is absolutely beneficial in a street fight. Even a smaller guy who has obvious muscle tone and lifts will have a large psychological advantage

2018-01-25 18:59:28 UTC  

True

2018-01-25 18:59:49 UTC  

Im not discrediting strength training, by any means.

Im just hoping that our goys are lifting weights AND doing some form a martial art training.

2018-01-25 19:00:13 UTC  

That's reasonable

2018-01-25 19:00:46 UTC  

If they had to choose between the two, I'd tell them join a MMA gym before joining a regular gym.

2018-01-25 19:02:00 UTC  

How many dead hang pull ups can you do. Push-ups etc

2018-01-25 19:04:37 UTC  

Eggsellent

2018-01-25 19:15:10 UTC  

hell yeah glad to see you guys jumping in FUK YEAH

2018-01-25 19:15:39 UTC  

exactly what Mosby said...MMA gym first, regular gym second

2018-01-25 19:15:43 UTC  

but be prepared

2018-01-25 19:15:47 UTC  

shit is going to cost.

2018-01-25 19:16:09 UTC  

i spend $90 for two days a week of boxing/jkd/muay thai but it is worth it

2018-01-25 19:16:27 UTC  

i feel confident/not cocky when I'm faced with aggression

2018-01-25 19:16:58 UTC  

technique over mucles all day

2018-01-25 19:17:19 UTC  

when I first stepped in an MMA gym...KMAA in Knoxville I was deadlifting 420 and benching 260

2018-01-25 19:17:26 UTC  

thought I was hot shit...got owned by a 5'4 female

2018-01-25 19:18:07 UTC  

never underestimate your enemy...the guy who looks skinny might have been doing BJJ for 10 years straight and will put you down

2018-01-25 19:18:25 UTC  

the bulked up dude might get dropped with a right cross, left hook, elbow

2018-01-25 19:18:59 UTC  

Or you end up grappling and get symbolically raped.

2018-01-25 19:19:26 UTC  

Always do both train the muscle and the skill.

2018-01-25 19:20:13 UTC  

In wrestling the strongest and most aggressive will always win.

2018-01-25 19:22:23 UTC  

yup...and here's a perfect example of what I'm talking about

2018-01-25 19:22:26 UTC

2018-01-25 19:22:52 UTC

He's nothing compared to our best.

2018-01-25 19:45:59 UTC  

@Der Jäger good to know. I'll make sure our guys are informed for the rally this weekend. anymore Tallahassee intel?

2018-01-25 20:04:40 UTC  

@JCAdams check your PM

2018-01-25 20:05:43 UTC  

@GenZ_88 Just don't let him get you on the ground...then you're fuked. Personally unless its strickly one on one with rules and sheet, I prefer to stand up any day

2018-01-25 20:06:03 UTC  

grounding and grappling in a crowd of who knows who is dangerous af
