    Who would win a fight between smaller 5'9 145lb man who has been training mma for 3 years or bigger 6'2-6'3 185lb guy with no martial arts training. Street fight with no weapons. Who do you think would win? Does size beat skill?

  • Are certain fighting styles more useful to a person depending on their size?

    Are there fighting styles that are best performed depending on the size of the person? For example, would a smaller person be better at wresting, karate, Muay Thai, etc. than a person with larger stature who is equally as skilled? Or does the larger person always have the advantage?

    Best answer: As a far east asian myself, I think those guys are idiots. I think of people learning our arts as people appreciating our culture. It's a sign that our culture had contributed something worth while to the international human culture.

    If they want to be so close minded, then let them know that them wearing western style clothing offends you and that they should only dress in traditional garbs grown only in the traditional methods(without the modern western farming methods). They should stop using the number symbols because they are middle eastern, they should stop eating pototoes, tomatoes, and all these new world foods because it's not of their culture, and they should stop listening to modern music because there is no much African American influence in all modern music all over the world.

    Seriously we can go down that list all day because so many aspects of our lives are influenced by different cultures internationally. I think it's beautiful that our cultures are so intermixed and I love that we(the asian culture) have something to offer to this mix. I would be much more saddened if nobody was taking anything from my culture, because that would mean that nobody sees any value in my culture yet.

I am choosing BJJ because I have never done a grappling martial art and it’s the best ground fighting martial art. They have Shotokan Karate and Muay Thai but can’t decide. I like Shotokan’s System and I like how the techniques are. But I like Muay Thai’s Low Kicks, and Knee Techniques. Which one is more effective in a street fight?

    Best answer: OK this question and similar have been asked numerous times thru the years. Simply put size is not going to matter nor is height. Actually the person with longer limbs are at disadvantage for many reasons. Long limbs make great levers.
    @Rick there is this distance thing. And no they often get jammed up by smaller person. They have to keep a longer distance to be effective or your strike will amount to nothing. Longer limbs too close means no power in strike. And same with shorter limbs and having to 'reach' your opponent. You over reach and you lose balance and power.
    Also Rick your limb has to travel that distance. A person with longer limbs takes more time to travel that distance. Thereby he will be equal or slower to extend that limb compared to a shorter limb. If you remove speed from the equation (just as a example).

    Back to question at hand. In this case the bodybuilder loses and kickboxer wins. Being shorter and more muscular puts you at a disadvantage. Lack of flexibility mainly in the joints. Also the fact he is not trained to fight.
    The kickboxer even being lighter in weight probably knows how to use his longer limbs and weight to an advantage since he has trained to fight and use his body for that.
    Bodybuilders do not necessarily mans stronger or more agile. Their primary concern is aesthetics, and grossly over muscled. They train for a pump in the muscle more than for strength and function. Bodybuilder 0 - Kickboxer 1

  • Can martial arts help with confidence?

    Best answer: Confidence is built through achievement, focus, and self-awareness.

    When you make yourself face adversity, overcome it and do that enough times, you come to realize that you have within you what it takes to reach your goal. You can look back and say to yourself: I've done that or I've faced tougher whatever than what I face now. That gives you a concrete base to stand on as oppose to not knowing if you can do something because you never had to or never bother to make yourself do so. You can use martial arts as a means to an end, but martial arts does NOT give you confidence. Instead, what it does is give you an obstacle course and a goal which you have to run; you have to come up with the will, passion, discipline, whatever, to make it happen.

    Many people who do not have confidence tend to look too far ahead to an expectation when they should be focusing on what must be done at hand. Instead of focusing on the immediate task and coming up with solutions for problems they face here and now, they are thinking about what if they fail or what if they don't look good in front of others, or what if someone does not like them. They lose heart before they even begun. Everyone gets nervous and no one enjoys failing, but not taking even one step because of something that has yet to occur or may not even happen is the ultimate failure.

    Awareness. You cannot solve a problem if you do not truly understand what the problem is. If you are not self-confident, then rather than giving it a name have you thought about why you are this way? Is it because someone told you you are not good enough and you believed it? Is it because you never stuck with anything long enough to be good at it - do you give up and quit too easily? Why? What is the real reason you do not have confidence?

    Martial arts is only one tool or path for what you seek. It is not the only one. Look at sports like the NBA, NFL, etc. Ever seen a top athlete who was not confidence or even a bit cocky? Look at some of the world's top surgeons, musicians, artists, scientists, engineers, etc - they are some of the most self-confident people you will ever meet and some would argue too confident.

    Best answer: You do realize this question and questions like this have been asked before.
    Figure this out for yourself. Would you rather fight a person who pushes a guy around, chases them and tackles to the ground and stops at the sound of a whistle. Or would you fight someone who kicks, punches, can twist your limbs into a pretzel, and has no time limit or stops at a whistle or bell?
    Chances are you probably know which one already. Who would you fight?
