  • Is WWE real like other sports or just a drama?

    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... show more

    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.

Would rules include: No headbutts, Kicking. biting, palm strikes, slapping, elbows & Knees 3. If you were in this sport who would you fight?

  • 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?

    We've seen videos all over the internet of a smaller, trained opponent taking down someone much, much, larger than them. For instance, a trained fighter can easily take down a bodybuilder twice their size. Since size and strength doesn't mean anything in a fight, a trained fighter can easily take down a... show more

  • How do you respond to people who think they can kick everyone's *** but never trained a day in their life?

    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.

    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 hear people say alot of fancy flashy moves and kicks are not piratical in real fights.

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?

  • At age 48, am I too old to begin studying karate?

    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?

    Best answer: Define favorite.

    If you're asking what I personally enjoy doing the most, taekwondo. I have a lot of fun practicing taekwondo, especially sparring.
    But is it the most effective martial art? No, that title goes to krav maga, a martial art I also practice.

  • 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.

  • A couple of weeks ago I got involved in Jiu Jitsu and MMA, I was wondering when is the best time to stretch?

    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'.

    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.
