I would be returning to the same school with the same instructor.

  • Why do people act like Bruce Lee is a god?

    Whenever I have a discussion with someone about Bruce Lee vs modern mma fighters they act like Bruce can beat anyone in a fight to the death.

    Whenever I have a discussion with someone about Bruce Lee vs modern mma fighters they act like Bruce can beat anyone in a fight to the death. They agree the mma fighters will win in the cage but in the street Bruce would win. Even in forums most people takes Lee’s side. It really bugged me when someone was saying Bruce can beat Jon Jones. He can’t!!! No way in hell. I understand he pioneered martial arts in a way that makes him great and was a very popular movie star. You can’t convince me that Bruce lee can beat GSP, Jon Jones or any other high level mma fighter. I understand that their is levels to this and Bruce isn’t a god. Why do people act like he is?

  • Do mixed Martial arts gyms do background checks on clients?

    Best answer: I've never heard of this practice by gyms or martial arts schools. The closest I've seen is an application one needs to fill out, and potentially an interview to ascertain the caliber of person with whom the teacher is dealing, but that has been for very ethical schools who don't want their name sullied... show more
    Best answer: I've never heard of this practice by gyms or martial arts schools. The closest I've seen is an application one needs to fill out, and potentially an interview to ascertain the caliber of person with whom the teacher is dealing, but that has been for very ethical schools who don't want their name sullied - nor unwanted litigation should a student decide to abuse what has been learned.

    I would think the practice of background checks to be unlikely for schools since there is a cost associated with them - that is unless the cost is passed onto you, the student, as part of an application process.

  • Is it true that you Englishmen say that Capoeira is dance out of envy?

    Best answer: If they do, then they've obviously never seen Lateef Crowder in action. And if they're not careful he could go pure Eddie Gordo on their arses. And we all know how well that works out.

  • What if my son doesn't want to train martial arts?

    Best answer: The best chance is for you to be involved with it as well. Take classes with him or be a coach. Kids want to do things with their parents at a young age. That is your best bet. If it doesn't work, then move onto something else.

  • Who would win in a hypothetical boxing match? President Trump or President Obama?

    IMO, I think Trump would hit Obama in the medulla oblongata, resulting on Obama curling into a ball due to excruciating pain and passing out.

  • Why can’t people do this?

    Best answer: For the same reason billionaires can't just beat you up for looking at them wrong. Because not even normal people are legally allowed to do it. It makes no difference if you are an average Joe or a professional mma fighter. Feelings aside, getting spit on is in no way equal to getting physically beaten up and... show more
    Best answer: For the same reason billionaires can't just beat you up for looking at them wrong. Because not even normal people are legally allowed to do it. It makes no difference if you are an average Joe or a professional mma fighter. Feelings aside, getting spit on is in no way equal to getting physically beaten up and hospitalized. Your career, wealth, status etc gives you no right to beat up people, neither does it give you the right to spit on someone, but that doesn't come close to causing the same amount of damage.

    I started training mma 4 months ago and I was really into it because I also did kick boxing for 3 years when I was around 11 years old. But I recently started losing interest in mma and stopped wanting to go to training. I started to develop an interest in going to the gym and gaining more muscle and making my physique look better. At the same time, I’m afraid when I start doing body building for a few months I’ll start to get the urge to go back to mma, but at that point it will be too late. I’m really not sure what to do because my interest in mma and training has gone down to the point where I don’t want to think about going back to the classes, and my interest in body building has increased a lot.
