• Should I beat this kid up?

    I go to the same classes as this kid every day. He claims he knows karate and he uses his arm to block my view whenever I'm near him. He thinks he is smarter than me and is always talking over me and taking my ideas and saying they are his.

  • How do I deal with shame and defeat of fighting?

    So last year, I fought a guy. As a martial artist I was cocky and had the skill; I held back. As a result I was defeated and humiliated thankfully my classmates didn't tease me or anything and held on to the promise that the fight is kept only with us.

    So last year, I fought a guy. As a martial artist I was cocky and had the skill; I held back. As a result I was defeated and humiliated thankfully my classmates didn't tease me or anything and held on to the promise that the fight is kept only with us. But this year some teased me and made a joke thats fine and all until this one asshole decided to **** with me. He tried to annoy me by calling me again and again but I ignored him, he thendecided to poke me with a stick. I then decided to grab a stick and use only one arm to mock him as he used both and at fill force. He tried to annoy me withbecause other methods then decided to show off the shame of my defeat to the ones near us. Commenting snarky remarks. I'd rather not report this as I would rather not let the school and mosy especially my family members to know And yes I deserve the shame but now its just an unnecessary discomfort

    If you have a fight i will just come after you with a group of people to beat you. If i can't get you your family. If i was going to rob you i will bring 6-7 people armed Or if i was going to raid your house i would come in numbers and armed So all this martial arts that you people do, what on earth makes you think your empty hand techniques will work here? Do you think you are Steven Seagals daddy? So don't you feel foolish i mean you could have joined me and my mates every evening we go out drinking after work, pool or just chilling at home watching netflixs, or PS4 and having a good time. the other day we went to the cinema or driving we have the time of our life. Life is to be enjoyed people dont you think? Dont you think your evenings are better spent this way? years wasted in some dojo ? Oh and if anyone messes with us they will regret it even though we dont do martial arts.

  • Why do people practice ancient martial arts when they wont really work in the modern world?

    Best answer: It s better to have a useful tool than to have nothing. And who's to say a trained martial artist is just going to run in the situation like JCVD, Bruce Lee, or Chuck Norris? Modern weapons do change the philosophy of combat, but that s no reason to assume unarmed combat is useless. If anything, it is a... show more
    Best answer: It s better to have a useful tool than to have nothing. And who's to say a trained martial artist is just going to run in the situation like JCVD, Bruce Lee, or Chuck Norris? Modern weapons do change the philosophy of combat, but that s no reason to assume unarmed combat is useless. If anything, it is a component of overall combat and self defense competency. A lot of martial artists consider this, and also carry weapons.

    Best answer: I haven't wasted any time one bit. I been to places and met people thru martial arts that you would never do or meet. And I am talking abt actual celebrities and people of influence in this world.
    Also I am healthy and strong thru my training. I have had careers made do to my martial arts. And it is not all empty hand there is also weapon training both offense and defense against.
    To many martial arts/sciences is not abt wasting time. It is a way of life and a good one at that. And yes I have done the shooting pool, taking hot woman/models to the movies. And I have driven more miles just to get a good cup of coffee and steak dinner.
    Funny you mention abt messing with you and your friends. You do realize most of us do not do that. You must be stone or watching to much tv or netflix thinking we do that. And there are NO RULES on the street. See I live in one of the most violent cities in the US and an area with high crime and such. I also work in a tough career and sometimes in a very difficult neighborhood. Where a good white boy like you wouldn't be caught dead past 6pm, because they wouldn't find your body.
    And on that note. I been to Russia and a few eastern European countries and been with those hot women. And seen their beautiful country as well as there bodies. Something I doubt you would ever have a chance to do in your pathetic life. And btw the ones here are probably here to be sex slaves and you have to pay for that. At stripp clubs usually it is a no touch or your out of there. And if you want more than a strip you have to pay a lot for those so called "Russian Gals". LOL I didn't have to pay for their company. They wanted me for being me.
    And for another thing I know I can physically handle you and your buddies (probably your butt buddies) eve if you have weapons. So don't try to say that I don't know what I am talking abt 'cause I do and been there and done that.
    BTW a lot of us former military members take martial arts/sciences so we don't kill trash like you and we keep our sane minds.
    So you can kick your brothers butt. Who cares! You ever think he might be holding back or that he might be lousy at it?
    I bet you never been in a situation where your life was in danger and live in a gated community where mommy and daddy get you everything and never worked a hard day in your short worthless life.

    Also you are lower than whale s-h-i-t since you write o post of this excrement and hide behind anonymous. It is probably the great white trash 'Ho Irish at it again.

    HAHA Irish I told you I play by MY RULES. Lost your anonymity didn't you. Ha
    And Funny There was a time i couldn't pay and I still was allowed to train and move one in martial sciences. To my instructor and me it is a way of life no amount of money could pay for what I have done and learned. And as I stated I KNOW what I can do and I have beat 4 guys with weapons at 1 time. And the did put 2 in the hospital. And it is not a fraud but a real deal. Also I live in one of the highest crime cities in the US and one with the most violence. I bet you don't know what violence is. I bet you lived a sheltered life with mommy and daddy paying for you car, clothes, food and s-h-i-t. Or I bet you still live with mommy in that white trash trailer park.
    And yes I been with some mighty fine woman. And no i am not an old man either you white trash. Giving the Irish a bad name as well. So grow up and get a pair of balls. Or do you suck your buddies balls? I think you take it in the keister with the way you talk. What pvssy you talking abt some 12 year old girl with no b00bs. Cause thats the way you sound like. That or it is your best buddy's drunk obese lonely mom who has only 2 teeth in her head..
    Truth hurts doesn't it douche bag.
    You and you butt buddies would last fighting me. After beat the living piss out of you andI knock your teeth down your throat I am sure they would all of a sudden become world class track stars.

    So I've been going to this class/school(whatever you want to call it) for about 6 years and I train taekwondo. I'm just about 1 belt away from achieving my black belt. The only problem is I really dislike going to the classes. This has been the case for over two years, each class I go to I feel no joy and feel excited when its over. There was a 2 month break from classes (In a school gym, and you can't use the school gym during summer) and I felt glad I didn't have to go, which was also the case for the last 2 summers. Now that it's starting again and expected to go, I still don't want to at all, and practically want to quit. The fact is also it's now my year I will probably go for my black belt testing and I really really do not want to put in all that money into something I don't like. My parents don't force me, but the instructor (friends with my family) will definitely want me to go, and he's the that person who forces things to go his way. What should I do? I know people will say just quit or keep going, but if you were in this situation what would you do?

    Best answer: Neither. They both have studied numerous martial arts and have added what they learned to their life long study of martial arts. One exception is Jackie Chan is he studied at The China Opera School and went to do theatrical WuShu where Bruce learned boxing and Wing Chun and was a Hong Kong Cha Cha dance champion. Bruce started his acting career early in life. Where Jackie started later. Jackie Chan even studied much of the same martial arts as Bruce.
    Bruce formed his own martial art Jun Fan Gung Fu and later abandoned it. Than later he formed his conceptual philosophical martial science Jeet Kune Do.
    As far as I know Bruce never studied Karate and Jackie did. But Bruce trained with (both learning and instructing) some of the who's who in acting and martial arts.

  • Why do boxers, mma fighters wear only mouth guard for top teath and not lowers ones?

    Best answer: Since you are supposed to keep your mouth closed and your teeth together when fighting for a normal bite the upper teeth will be the first ones to get hit and the lower teeth which will be behind the upper teeth when the teeth are together are protected by the upper teeth.

    So, I am a pretty solitary guy. I can have friends if I want to, but I will not put forth any effort to acquire any. It's important to say this because I will be alone if anything happens and there will be many of them. At least 3 at a time. I've handled 4 people at once before and they were fighters. So, I've been training in various forms of martial arts (even before that I've been in dozens of fights, all of which I won, and most of which the other guy didn't even touch me). So, I can handle myself. The problem is that they keep going on and on. I left the hood. I left all that ignorant violence behind me in order to go to college. I do not want to fight anyone especially seeing how the people who want to fight me are p u s s i e s anyway since they always have to be in a group to talk crap. I have a rule when it comes to using aggression 3 strikes and the person is out. They're on strike 2. I have very little blunt weapons training, so I'm not too confident in fighting several guys with untrained hands. I know that my body is technically my weapon but still. Do I simply keep walking?
