• Boxing, or Karate?

    I'm a guy, about to turn 27, and I think it's time I learned self-defense. And I would like to know which would be better to take.

    I'm a guy, about to turn 27, and I think it's time I learned self-defense. And I would like to know which would be better to take. I'm favoring the idea of boxing, as there is no meditation, or practicing of religion, unlike Karate. And boxers can deal out a good amount of damage in a fight. However Karate seems to be a better self-defense skill, and better for fighting off multiple assailants... like say you're leaving a bar, and some guys decide to jump you. Not to mention, but Karate employs both hands and feet, so essentially you're using your whole body to defend yourself. Anyway I'd like to hear from people who have done either one, or both, which they would recommend and why? Boxing? Or, Karate?

  • What martial arts fighting focuses more on pressure points and simple mechanical arm bending techniques?

    My gf is extremely petite and weak. She wants to learn some martial arts but is physically weak so even good punches don't really hurt well. The point is she's probably not going to get much stronger so martial arts that don't require much strength would be best for her. So being quick about grabbing... show more

The point is she's probably not going to get much stronger so martial arts that don't require much strength would be best for her. So being quick about grabbing pressure points or twisting arms/fingers and using peoples weight and momentum against them would be best for her.

What do I do?

  • Who would win in a fist fight between Obama and Trump?

    Best answer: It's difficult to say, but either way it would be a pretty boring fight since they are both old. Of course if Trump wins there will probably be another "scream helplessly at the sky" event.

  • What should I do?

    I have this after school activity (taekwondoe) that I really dislike. I started when I was little and I used to like it. When I became around 7-12 years old I started to get bored of it.

    I have this after school activity (taekwondoe) that I really dislike. I started when I was little and I used to like it. When I became around 7-12 years old I started to get bored of it. A couple years later I started to dislike it but I was ok because I had my friends with me. But then I moved to and went to a different dojo (a place where you practice martial arts). The dojo was pretty small so there weren't many students there. Since my old dojos and my new dojos styles are different my teacher always called me out on my mistakes. Later on my teacher began (always) picking on me. Because of that I made no friends and was always the loner. Over the next couple years my teacher continued picking on me and everythings gotten worse. I haven't been able to test for my next belt and I've overheard people talking sh*t about me behind my back. I've also been embarrassed many times in front of my class now. I really hate taekwondoe now and just want to quit but my parents won't let me. Does anyone have any advice?

    Best answer: The more you practice the easier it will become. So just focus on that. Maybe add some weights to it as well.
