  • Though Bruce Lee has achieved legendary status, the martial art he founded, Jeet Kune Do, is not that popular. Why?

    Bruce Lee needs no introduction. Since his death in 1973, his martial art, Jeet Kune Do, has not grown much. It is hardly as popular as Tae Kwon Do, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu or even Shotokan Karate. While Bruce Lee is idolized, the martial art he founded, Jeet Kune Do, is not taken very seriously. Why?... show more

    My story is this, okay so I was bareknuckle sparring with a co-worker tonight and the thing is he is untrained and I am tranined and I was teaching him stuff but okay here is where things start to seem funny, when we started fighting Everytime I threw a perfect punch he blocked every single last one of them despite never being trained to block it's like it was natural to him but when he threw punches at me I could barely block them or react to them or understand what he was throwing he only hit me twice and I only hit him once. So tell me is MMA teaching me bad fighting habits with my defensive reflexes or is MMA or any fighting art a joke and no one should train in any because after what happened tonight it's kind of making me doubt any fighting art out there and I really don't think they are effective in a Street fight.

  • How would a pro mma fighter do against 4 untrained people?

    Best answer: you answered your own question when you said 'zero fighting skill' ... now some at least mean kids could clock him in the back of the head with a crowbar or something, but that implies at least 'some' fighting skill ..

    I’m a 16 yr old girl who lives in the city. I really want to learn self defense. My cousin is a year younger than me and she’s a blue belt in taekwondo. Her parents and brother always brag how she can kick everyone’s butt. I really want to take martial arts but I can’t do to religious reasons of my mom. But my aunt was talking as this stuff like “ oh martial arts is better because boxing is only your fist” but I want to do boxing along with kickboxing. I just don’t wanna be the weak one compared to her no more and learn to protect myself. Will I still be so much weaker than her if I take boxing and she continues in taekwondo

  • I was laughed at and ridiculed in my karate dojo. Should this be allowed?

    Best answer: Why are you there? It shouldn't matter one goddamn bit whether someone laughs at you or not. You are there to learn to kick some ******* ***. Forget the weak minded and go there and vow that you will get your black belt and kick all their ******* asses. Forget them - focus on your goals and destroy anyone... show more

  • Are chiropractors good at martial arts?

    They have vast amounts of knowledge of the human body and know how to adjust all of your body and stuff. If they can move people’s jaws and spines into place in a matter of seconds, then can they move them out of place as well? I feel like I would not want to fight a chiropractor.

  • Pound for pound, was Bruce Lee the strongest, best fighter who ever lived? Or just a highly entertaining actor?

    Best answer: He was a highly talented athlete who had natural abilities which he honed very well to produce a lucrative career. His speed and prowess allowed him to excel in martial arts.

    Best answer: He was a highly talented athlete who had natural abilities which he honed very well to produce a lucrative career. His speed and prowess allowed him to excel in martial arts. That being said, his speed and strength compensated for his lack of technique and understanding. His depth was lacking, but to his credit, he always sought to increase his knowledge; he just never studied any single martial art long enough to fully gain any real modicum of understanding before moving onto something else, taking short-cuts along the way.

    Was Bruce Lee great? Sure, his natural ability combined with his excessive training and drive saw to that, but technically speaking? He wasn't even close to being the best fighter who ever lived. He's become something of a folklore hero in recent years...

    I’m currently in the US Army and will be going through RASP soon and just wanted to know what martial arts and hand to hand combat would be good to start off in? We ruck , run, and do a lot of high interval and endurance stuff here in the Army would love a sport to compliment and improve my endurance and stamina. I wrestled in highschool and absolutely love the idea of greco roman and Krav maga for hand to hand. I thought about doing a mix of Greco/BJJ and kcikboxing/Krav maga. How does that sound? Suggestions and tips would help.
