At times, I know the lines so much, that I repeat them as if I was saying them 😅. Am I weird? Should I be proud to be weird? Also, if any of you suggest to copy moves from The Karate Kid, nice try. I can’t do Jackie’s moves quite yet. I also have asthma. Would this technically be a danger to put me in the hospital?

  • Is training on concrete bad for your feet/knees?

    Best answer: There is a possibility that prolong training on concrete can result in stress fracture, but there is no way to predict it for each individual.

    Best answer: There is a possibility that prolong training on concrete can result in stress fracture, but there is no way to predict it for each individual.

    The worst surface to train on in regards to lower body joints is concrete. If you do it long enough, it will cause problems down the line. Concrete does not give and all the impact energy that you apply to the surface is re-applied back to your legs and supporting joints.

    It would be better to train on a softer surface such as grass or mats. You can buy interlocking gym mats and use them in your room if that is your only choice.

  • Ive taken 6th martial arts classes so far and I plan to go a very long way in martial arts but have anxiey and aspergers?

    Best answer: Of course it is effective. As you gain strength, agility, endurance and speed, your confidence level goes up. Way up. Teaching the body to perform certain movements every time correctly is just a matter of drill.

  • Is it true being the bigger and stronger man doesn't matter much when the fight mainly consists of punches to the face.?

    Best answer: If you are small then you need to be fast and keep your distance then lunge into an attack and knock the sucker out with one blow. If the bigger and stronger man is able to get hold of the smaller guy then he's done for and can't do much about it apart from maybe a strike to the balls.

  • Been punching objects for a few years now. My knuckles feel stronger. But am I doing permanent damage (Answer only if you have experience)?

    Best answer: The question more should be, what benefits are you looking for. Power from a punch comes from the whole body and hardness of the knuckles really doesn't have any impact on the strength of the punch.

    Best answer: The question more should be, what benefits are you looking for. Power from a punch comes from the whole body and hardness of the knuckles really doesn't have any impact on the strength of the punch. If anything, larger surface area you gain from knuckle training would defuse the force of the punch into a greater area doing less damage than a more angular untrained knuckles. Though that difference would be tiny compared to everything else that makes up a punch. What you should be working on is not on making your knuckles harder, but learning to align your punches better and strengthening your wrists.

    Best answer: Earlier you start acting to prevent a situation easier the technique will be. Completely avoiding the people that might cause you trouble for example requires the least technique.

    Avoiding being pincered from both sides would be the next best thing. Essentially have both potential threats in front of you at all times, and if they start moving to surround you then move as well to keep them in front of you(or if you can just escape out right that would be best). A martial artist would try to line them up actually, since if they are lined up then the person in the back can't attack due to the person in front blocking their line of attacks. This way you can make two on one fight into two one on one fights, latter of which is actually easier.

    If you are already caught, then you have already failed in the first two steps and now you are doing damage control. If they grabbed you then they would expect you to start grappling back. So instead you should start lashing out at them with strikes. That could be head butting or stomping on their foot if need be. Once they are starting to think about your strikes and how to defend against it, then you start grappling and try to free yourself from their grasp. When you are grappling back try to remember to use your whole body. Most people get stuck using only their arms to try to free themselves, but if you start moving around and use your legs as well then they could get out of more situations than they think they can.

    As far as the actually fighting part is concerned. People train for years to learn to do that correctly, so it's quite unreasonable to learn to do that from something I can write over the web. What I can say is, every action you make should involve your whole body. Your punch shouldn't just be your arms moving, your whole body should be involved. Also shorter the distance from a to b faster you will get to your destination. So if you pull back to punch you are creating more distance, so it's slower than just going forward in more compact motion with your whole body. If you are interested in learning more, I would suggest looking for a place to train.

    Best answer: A medieval buckler could be useful in a street fight, I would think. It is small hand-held shield, which you can move to counter your opponent's weapon - including his fist. Historically was used in battle, but even more often for self-defense by civilians. You can use it to protect yourself from sticks as well as knives, machetes, and swords. You can also use it as an aggressive weapon to hit your opponent with. It is light weight and you could actually carry it around with you, and
    You can get a get a reasonably priced one on Amazon, and it is very strong and serviceable. https://smile.amazon.com/Cold-Steel-2009948-Medieval-Buckler/dp/B006YBXYYS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1535083004&sr=8-1&keywords=buckler

    Best answer: - Jeet Kune Do was never intended to be a formal style. It's more of a philosophy with some ideas for techniques and combat approaches that needed more time to develop before Lee's untimely passing. Some JKD practitioners use the martial arts Bruce Lee practiced like Boxing, Wing Chun, and fencing concepts. But there are many who do their own thing with formal training and identify it as JKD (concepts), or a combination of the two. Unfortunately the two camps have been fighting over how it should be approached for years. There are JKD concepts practitioners, and JKD practitioners. Very few schools have practitioners with the same martial arts background.

    - Many acknowledge JKD and its influence on modern MMA (along with Vale Tudo), but JKD was never meant to be a combat sport. The primary focus is self defense. Many practitioners feel no need to compete against other schools, or different styles. The styles you mentioned either have a combat sport element, or at least competitive sparring. They also had many more decades to develop dedicated communities and fans. You've got Olympic sport, two popular combat sports that are also common in MMA, and one of the most popular styles of Karate. Self defense systems are becoming more popular over the years, but they're not as popular as combat sports.They're important, but not as entertaining to an audience.
