  • Lost to my coach?

    Best answer: You feel this way because of your ego. No one likes to lose, but only someone with no resolve or mental toughness gets "super depressed" just because he lost and lost to someone who is training you.

    Best answer: You feel this way because of your ego. No one likes to lose, but only someone with no resolve or mental toughness gets "super depressed" just because he lost and lost to someone who is training you. Your coach is not there to give you a free pass and stroke your ego;. He is there to train you.

    The fact that you lost means you have more to learn or improve. A real fighter and someone with the toughness of mind would have gone back and dissect the fight and find out what went wrong and what needs to be improved. Did you do that? Did you think to yourself that your coach who is half your size can beat you means his skill is such that if you had it you would be even better than what you think you are now?

    Every time you met someone better than you is an opportunity to learn and become better yourself. There is an old adage in martial art: arrogance stagnates, humility advances. Someone who believes he is some hotshot has stop growing, learning, and improving. After all, why do all of that if you think you are already better than everyone else. But a humble man is constantly looking for ways to be better and in fact he is never satisfy with the status quo. Which one are you?

    Best answer: It is NOT a sport. It used to be listed in the TV Guide as 'sports entertainment'. You do realize it is all scripted and choreographed.

    Best answer: It is NOT a sport. It used to be listed in the TV Guide as 'sports entertainment'. You do realize it is all scripted and choreographed. Majority of the 'pro' wrestlers are all related to 1 another in some way.
    If it were real those guys who been hit by all sorts of objects would be seriously injured and their opponents would be doing jail time for that.
    It is a business. Would you want your employee hurt, injure or kill another one of your employees?
    So it is entertainment simple as that.

  • If size and strength doesn't matter in a fight, then an MMA fighter or any trained martial artist can easily take down a gorilla right?

    Best answer: Adult gorillas have are massive and have unusually strong and long arms Those are only two advantages that large MMA fighters don't have.

    Best answer: Adult gorillas have are massive and have unusually strong and long arms Those are only two advantages that large MMA fighters don't have. A gorilla could just swipe at the person and with one hit, no matter where placed, would knock the person down. After the person is down, the gorilla would just beat the heck out of them with pounding. The strongest and most skilled man on earth would last 5 seconds before death by crushed ribs and punctured lungs, possibly broken skull.

    So many people at my job, mainly the younger folks (20-25) have this mentality that they're such amazing fighters and that they can whoop everyone's *** but none of them have ever trained in anything (kickboxing, boxing, mma, nothing) and it's so irritating. I've been boxing since I was 12 till I was 22, and I'm currently 27 and I've always understood modesty. Almost everyone I work with, would never think I was involved in any aspect of fighting because I try to keep it that way. Nobody likes a bragger or someone who walks around thinking they're a hard ***, and I have 1 worker (21) who goes around making jokes about how he'd pulverize me and this younger kid in a street fight because he lifts weights. I always laugh it off and pretend like he can, but sometimes I just wanna accept his challenge just to embarrass him and his big mouth. If you were me, would you continue laughing it off or would you embarrass him? Honestly?

I can see where this go wrong in skillful fights where your opponent is equally as skilled, (like MmA fights) But for the vast majority of people who do not fight or drunk brawls. Don't these flashy spin kicks actually work very well? I remember in high school, theres this kid who took martial arts and fights a lot of regular kids who do not take martial arts, and he always gets them with these attacks.

    im 15 years old, my parents want me to have a high end job like a lawyer or doctor. I try to convince myself that I want to be someone like that but It's not true. I want to be someone big, someone great. I have a very strong passion for fighting(boxing, jiu jitsu, etc) even though I'm not that good at it. I dont share many traits of the well known fighters. I'm not poor, I didn't really have a tough life but I am very ambitious. I'm not a very strong and skilled person, but i know that with enough effort and willpower, i can succeed. i am aware that choosing the life of a fighter is a huge risk and that most do not succeed. My parents strongly disapprove of my passion and try their best to convince me to change it. I am very passionate about fighting, more than anything else. I'd love to be one of the greats but I share no traits with them. I'm not poor and desperate, i dont really live a tough life and i have an education. I do feel like devoting my life to fighting is foolish, but it's my passion whether my parents disapprove or not. I just don't know what to do. Should I find a new passion or go for it?

    Best answer: Nope. Never too old to learn martial arts.
    Great way to get more mentally and physically tuned-up.
    Many of them are terrific disciplines to learn.
    I was involved with one Dojo and one form
    of Shotokan Karate for many years, it served
    me well during my years as a cop.
    If i had it to do over again, I'd have actually
    gone with Hapkido. Karate is largely defensive and
    focuses a lot on point-fighting in the ring...
    Hapkido is more street-smart and real-life applicable.
    Both come with great mental disciplines,
    (depending on your Sensei, of course).
    Which brings up an important point.
    Before choosing your Dojo, learn about the
    Sensei (teacher) before joining up. Occasionally,
    you do run into teachers that are a little psycho...
    and MANY who claim to have certification that they
    actually do not have...

  • What is your favorite martial art fighting style?

  • How useful is a bo (martial art weapon) against real life swords?

    I understand it may not be as deadly as a sword due to not being a blade. What if someone used a spear and was a master of bojutsu. Some people say it is not a useful weapon, which I disagree.

    Best answer: To loosen up you stretch before class. To gain flexibility you stretch after class.

    Best answer: To loosen up you stretch before class. To gain flexibility you stretch after class.
    Stretching to loosen up is a gentle stretch to ease your body into the exercises, so you don't hurt yourself. Some martial arts call it 'waking up the body'.
    Stretching to gain flexibility is a more intense stretch and is best done when the body is warmed up and also tired out to get less resistance. A warm and relaxed body stretches a whole lot better.
