  • Is there a difference between a rod and a staff?

    been writing about a character who fights with a staff, but I picture the weapon to be short, and I realized staffs are often pictured long, almost like itd take two hands and touch the ground. Can there be a short staff or does that make it a rod? is there any real difference?

  • Online Taekwondo Black Belt?

    They are claiming at http://taekwonwoo.net/ that one can earn a black belt that is recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation (the only Taekwondo federation recognized by the Olympics) through video submissions to achieve rank.

    They are claiming at http://taekwonwoo.net/ that one can earn a black belt that is recognized by the World Taekwondo Federation (the only Taekwondo federation recognized by the Olympics) through video submissions to achieve rank. This can't possibly be true, right? Apart from the fact that one wouldn't actually learn anything, are they lying or is this actually a loophole of sorts? Is there anything like this in karate that would be recognized by the World Karate Federation or any other martial art? It seems bizarre to say the least.

  • Doesn't the fight between Mayweather and McGregor favor Mayweather because it's a boxing match?

    Best answer: Pretty much. Mayweather is a boxer in a whole nother level than anybody else. I would be very surprised if Conor wins.

  • Martial Arts: What to practice next?

    Best answer: I don't think that if you get faster, you will get better. Rather, I think when you get better, you will get faster. You ever see that idiot at the gym who tries to lift a barbell as fast as he can and looks silly doing it? Or the guy trying to bowl as many games as he can in an hour because of the coupon... show more
    Best answer: I don't think that if you get faster, you will get better.

    Rather, I think when you get better, you will get faster.

    You ever see that idiot at the gym who tries to lift a barbell as fast as he can and looks silly doing it? Or the guy trying to bowl as many games as he can in an hour because of the coupon he's using? Or the guy on the track and field running as fast as he can but not improving? Or the moron at the gym punching a hanging bag as fast as he can but hasn't thrown a single punch?

    What these people are doing wrong is they aren't working on technique. The guy on the bag will throw a million punches a second at his opponent, missing every time; all his opponent needs is one good punch and he's out cold.

    If you insist on only working on speed, then you should be doing plyometric exercises which will develop fast twitch muscles. Just know that if you don't work on technique, you'll be developing habits that will be difficult to undo later on. Never discount the value of a quality instructor.

  • If Conor McGregor loses on august 26th. Will it ruin his entire career?

    I mean when he comes back to UFC. It will be a pay cut. Maybe he won't be as admired if he comes back from a loss either.

  • Who was a better martial artist, bruce lee or joe san?

    Best answer: Bruce Lee vs 100,000 random people. Who would win? If you say Bruce Lee, then you need to get your head examined. Bruce Lee was a man just like any other man (though with special gifts). People act like Bruce Lee was unbreakable and invincible.
