    Do yourself a favour and learn yourself something standup to compliment the style.

    You’ll thank me later.

    technically, Krav Maga and JJ should also both be under broken bones and Muy Thai shouldn’t be on the chart.

    Why shouldn’t it?

    This chart needs Gun Fu a la Equilibrium.

    I don’t know what Ninjutsu teaches, but if it’s about sneaking and attacking from behind, it’s got to have a pretty high success rate.

    Fighting fair is for people with less regard for staying pretty than you or I.

    I honestly have no experience with it myself. I have met a few people that train it, and they vary quite a bit, skill wise, but that can be said for most martial arts.

    I give Puulaahi a lot of shit, but he’s an alright guy and seems to take it quite well.

    The only correct answer to this question is use the martial art that trains against resisting opponents.

    I know this is just a joke post, but I still feel the need to bring my trademark hate. Feel the terrible fury of my seething contempt as I trash talk sacred cows. Krav Maga: Incompetent instructors use ineffective training to teach techniques that rarely work, even when trained correctly. 3 strikes and you’re out. It’s a joke martial art sold to newbs who don’t know better. Krav Maga instructors are the snake oil salesmen of the MA world. Example #1 how you can sell bullshit to idiots by telling them that they’re training for the street. Ninjitsu: Go cry… Read more »

    I’m glad you and I realize that Judo is where it’s at.

    Judo is the standard I measure other martial arts against, but honestly out of a sense of fairness I feel the need to compose a bitch session about it.

    Did I ever tell you about the time one of my instructors threw me so high he was able to catch me and spin me around in mid air so I didn’t land on my head and kill myself?

    Wait, I accidentally replied to myself, so I high fived myself. I am mentally deficient.

    *High five*@ Korinthian.

    See, a *true* martial artist would have hit me on the first try.

    Well, shit. Seppuku for me then. I’ll probably miss though.

    I’m not quite sure if it counts as “saving someone from killing themselves” when you did the throwing in the first place.

    Although that might be a smart legal defense.

    sambo78

    Heh. My instructor was an old school Judoka that believed the hardest training was the best training. He was also a Marine and Vietnam vet who didn’t believe in the words pity or mercy.

    His mentality was that if he threw me and I got hurt, it was my fault because my breakfalls weren’t good enough. For a while I believed he only helped me was because he didn’t feel like dealing with the hassle of explaining to the cops why there’s a dead 8 year old in pajamas in the dojo.

    I am only exaggerating for comedic effect a little.

    More or less that, yes. But without the pointless obsession with destroying Ralph Macchio.

    Your comment is not going to be popular around here, but you’re absolutely right. At they’re best, most martial arts are just a way to get some exercise. If you’re ever in a fight, it helps to be in shape. But beyond that they’re not going to help you any more than any other exercise regime.

    That’s taking it a bit too far.

    Reboot, considering how strongly we’ve disagreed in the past, it’s very big of you to agree with me and not hold a grudge.

    I would disagree that martial arts do not help in a fight. Hell some martial arts teach habits so bad they can help the other guy.

    my karate instructor left me with one basic principle:
    punch them in the throat and run.

    The sad truth is that if you suck at fighting now, you’re probably going to suck at fighting for the rest of your life. the martial ARTS are just as applicable in combat as figure painting and pastry making.

    I wanna hear treatments for:
    -Savate
    -Aikido (actually you did this one at length awhile back)
    -Tae Kwon Do
    …and maybe a word or two about weapons arts, such as Kendo or Escrima.
