• Why do you do martial arts when a knifeman can easily kill you?

    A guy who had practiced martial arts one day decided to jump in and help a damsel in distress. This man had spent years training, lived and breathed martial arts. Well the tramp who was a drug addict simply pulled out a knife and cut him to sushi. None of his dojo techniques worked. Shredded like cheese he were. I... show more
    A guy who had practiced martial arts one day decided to jump in and help a damsel in distress. This man had spent years training, lived and breathed martial arts. Well the tramp who was a drug addict simply pulled out a knife and cut him to sushi. None of his dojo techniques worked. Shredded like cheese he were. I doubt the tramp knew martial arts. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-... News for you, people use knives, come in gangs and armed with metal bars. Why bother doing martial arts ? It's redundant in modern times surely?

  • How easy would it be for you to grab a knife out of someone's hand?

    Say that a female was holding on to a knife with one hand and you had attempted to grab it from her and she held on with her tightest grip, would you struggle or would it be easy for you?

  • Have you ever heard of a martial arts school with a belt ranking starting at ,no belt, i saw a couple of schools do that i saw online?

    Best answer: In Karate I do not issue a belt right away either. A prospective student with no prior martial arts experience is required to watch at least one class and if (s)he is a minor then one parent has to watch the class too. Then the student gets free trial classes. Then you get to take classes for a month at regular... show more
    Best answer: In Karate I do not issue a belt right away either. A prospective student with no prior martial arts experience is required to watch at least one class and if (s)he is a minor then one parent has to watch the class too. Then the student gets free trial classes. Then you get to take classes for a month at regular tuition. That's where you learn your basic punches, kicks, stances and other footwork. It's boring like h@!! and fully intentional. If you still feel you want to train then I will let you purchase a gi and you will get a white belt with it. Traditionally the gi was the regular clothing and a belt held your top together, only the colored belts for rank came much later. It is pointless not to issue a belt when a student wears a gi as it would be like being only half dressed and the little side ties on a gi are hardly enough to hold the gi together especially if you also incorporate grappling. Yes, Karate does have grappling techniques and those little ties give out in no time and tear, more often than not leaving holes in a new gi. If a school does not issue a belt with a gi then I would have to question their curriculum as well as their intentions and their need to beat one more test with fees out of a student.

  • How to continue martial art practice?

    Best answer: 11 years makes a big difference in a person's life. 11 years of little physical exercise will deteriorate the body quickly in muscle tone and stamina. Why do you feel the need to all of a sudden push yourself physically and go all out when your body is not used to it? You can not just pick up where you left off... show more
    Best answer: 11 years makes a big difference in a person's life. 11 years of little physical exercise will deteriorate the body quickly in muscle tone and stamina. Why do you feel the need to all of a sudden push yourself physically and go all out when your body is not used to it? You can not just pick up where you left off 11 years ago if you haven't done anything for 11 years.
    A good healthy diet is good for you but will not fix your problem completely. You also need to exercise and work yourself into training again. That takes time. Start once a week if that is all you can do right now. Then go twice when you can handle it and increase the physical activity as you get used to it.
    Same for your digestive problems. A diet can help as well as reducing your stress but if your problems are excessive and do not subside do see a doctor.

  • Would this work on a martial arts expert a small kitchen knife with wooden handle so you can use all your grip strength and speed techniques?
  • Can people who test for black belts get a fake black belt or certificate like a scam in tae kwon do?

    Best answer: Of course. Those places which give out 'fake' black belts are called McDojos, A.K.A 'belt factories'. I used to go to one of those. I realized there was a problem when I was beating the 'black belts' easily.

  • Who punches the hardest?

    Best answer: In my mind they're all a 1.

    Depends on the martial artist. They all have their own style, their own strengths. Also, while Muay Thai does include kicks and punches, its real power comes from the elbows and knees. So actually its really not a fair compare them.

  • Does it bother a guy if he's doing karate and his stomach jiggles?

    Best answer: I imagine not any more than any other active part of his life. If he has to run, jump or any thing like that he'll feel the same jiggles, so I imagine they are used to it.
