• When a Karate student brakes boards, do they enjoy breaking it going with the grain of the wood, or against the grain?

    Best answer: You just pound the damn thing. Why are people talking about skill and grain? You put your weight into it. This is not skill or technique. It's common sense. It also how you execute a linear strong punch . You drop as you punch letting gravity and your mass help you. Why karate? A friend of mine working for the... show more

    Why karate? A friend of mine working for the DNR breaks small logs with his bare hands all the time.

  • Why did Khabib get so much backlash after his fight with conor but conor got away with so much attacking the bus?

  • Why is it considered bad to punch Nazis and fascists?

    Best answer: All you'd be doing is punching yourself and other democrats. Republicans cannot be Nazis since they aren't even socialist, and while not all socialists are National Socialists, all National Socialists are socialist.

    Best answer: It would be a long shot at best which is some sort of chance but you need to understand what you are up against. No background in martial or fighting arts means training for a16-18 months before you could be ready for your first real fight as an amateur. Even then you might not be ready but that would be the minimum given all the basic skills you have to learn and develop. Then fighting as an amateur you have to have so many fights before you can apply for a pro license. In most states that five or six fights as an amateur. Even if you fought every three months you are looking at another year at least before going pro. So that's about three years total. Then there are all those other outside factors in your life that might hold things up or side track you for a bit. Don't forget about the injury factor either and some injuries require rest and down time from training and fighting so you are really talking about four years or more really. That's a long time to be dedicated to something and train 4-5 days per week while putting other things aside all the while having to stay healthy.

    Even so some do succeed to some extent so it can be done but you won't know until you try and while all this is happening you also have to live somehow and pay your bills. Injuries, family obligations, and other personal situations take out a lot of fighters in they becoming fighters and/or they furthering their career much beyond the amateur level. So if you want to try and do this I think its important that you understand what you are up against and that you take it one step at a time. That first step would be finding a place to train and learn those aspects you need to learn and developing your skill and understanding of them over about 16-18 months. If you can do that and stick to your training and stay off cigarettes and basically little or no drinking then take the next step. That would be getting scheduled for your first amateur fight against another fighter with few or no fights. Your third step would be getting enough fights under your belt as an amateur and winning the majority of them and then applying for a pro license. Even after 4-5 amateur fights you might not be ready for that level nor even reach it but as I said you take it one step at a time.

  • Why is your opinion of the Khabib and Conor fight and do you think there will be a second fight between them? Is what I typed below wrong?

    My opinion is Conor looked so helpless and scared the whole time. He never had the edge. Khabib was on top of him during the whole fight and was running the show. He was also out striking Conor who is considered one of the greatest strikers the UFC has ever seen.
