    He is a soldier in the military and weighs around 210. He has much fighting experience from Judo and Krav Maga, but I simply think he would be severely lacking. He claims that any soldier can flatten a UFC fighter and wants to fight against Conor McGregor. He insisted that he was going to post on Conor's twitter and keep challenging him, until he accepted. What do I do?

  • Who would win in a fist fight between Obama and Trump?

    Best answer: It's difficult to say, but either way it would be a pretty boring fight since they are both old. Of course if Trump wins there will probably be another "scream helplessly at the sky" event.

    I have this after school activity (taekwondoe) that I really dislike. I started when I was little and I used to like it. When I became around 7-12 years old I started to get bored of it.

    I have this after school activity (taekwondoe) that I really dislike. I started when I was little and I used to like it. When I became around 7-12 years old I started to get bored of it. A couple years later I started to dislike it but I was ok because I had my friends with me. But then I moved to and went to a different dojo (a place where you practice martial arts). The dojo was pretty small so there weren't many students there. Since my old dojos and my new dojos styles are different my teacher always called me out on my mistakes. Later on my teacher began (always) picking on me. Because of that I made no friends and was always the loner. Over the next couple years my teacher continued picking on me and everythings gotten worse. I haven't been able to test for my next belt and I've overheard people talking sh*t about me behind my back. I've also been embarrassed many times in front of my class now. I really hate taekwondoe now and just want to quit but my parents won't let me. Does anyone have any advice?

  • Is it true that doing Judo will prevent you getting pregnant?

    Best answer: The shock and impact of hitting the mat when falling or being thrown could make it harder for someone to get pregnant or even maybe conceive a child.

    Best answer: The shock and impact of hitting the mat when falling or being thrown could make it harder for someone to get pregnant or even maybe conceive a child. In my schools that was the one personal question I would ask of females sometimes is were they trying to get pregnant (if they were married) since I taught the Judo method of falling over the jujitsu method of falling. Both cause shock and impact to the body in various ways and once a female was pregnant in my schools then their training in martial arts was altered to avoid that and other things and they were not allowed to train at all after the second trimester.

    Since a untrained street fighter can beat a trained fighter with sheer confidence and aggression and power shots and skills that they experimented and it worked on their own. Whats the point of training? If that'd the case then all training arts out there are crap boxing wont work Kickboxing wont work muay thai wont work wrestling wont work navy seals/military combat wont work pretty much any style out there won't work because if all it takes for you to be is a tough street fighter and just get into alot of street fights and gain fight experience from that alone then training is pointless! All a person got to do is workout, eat right, stay in shape, hit a punching bag, fight in the street alot and they will be perfect ultimate fighters. Martial arts and combat training are crap then! Prime example boxing! How is boxing a training if anyone can fight like one? All I think boxing is a honing mechanism not a legit art or skill. Boxing is just two street fighters putting on gloves and going at it instead of bareknuckle. If you don't believe me why when we watch two untrained people fight say like on YouTube or someone you actually seen in your life fight why to they already know how to throw jab,cross,hooks,uppercuts,bob,weave,slip... and they have never actually been properly taught these things in real life? All they did was imitate! Also since fighting is all about who got the best confidence out the two since fighting is more of a mental thing whats the point of training

  • Which form of martial arts should a 13 year old girl learn for self defense?

    Best answer: Find someone who teaches self defense and not sport. All martial arts styles can be taught for sport and nowadays this is the emphasis in most schools. Sport is not self defense. The realism and intensity of an attack is very different from a sparring match where you try to score (not get away) in a controlled environment.
    Fantom makes a really good point. You should start there and make sure the school that you enroll her in teaches and emphasizes that part. Getting engaged is the last resort. Staying safe is a much better option especially for a girl.
    Since it takes a while to get proficient in self defense at 13 she does not have a lot of years to spend to develop a traditional martial art before she wants to be independent in her social activities so you might want to look at something that will give her quick results for now and then switch to something different if she wants to refine her techniques.
    It would be futile to give you a name of a style. Not all teachers are good at what they teach and a style will not guarantee that. A style may also not be available where you live. Unfortunately, there is no easy way and you really have to actively go out and look at schools in your area to really find out who teaches what. No style name will let you know what to expect.
