On the defense (; ?
You coming at me with such “hostility” do you need to prove me wrong so badly (
Looking on tactics in war you can see the strategiec from historical work as Sun Tzus “Art of war” being used and studied in combat acadamys around the globe so the old ways aint dead yet.
I dont say guns aint effective, sure if i can have a glock or a rifle i would not say no, distance from enemy is allways desirable. But for the majority of the worlds population guns aint easy to obtain so saying that something i cant get hold of is the best way of defense is for me the same as saying well sorry you cant defend yourself at all.
Ground game is importent sure in the sence as " get that fuck out of there" if you face 5 guys and deside to hug one on the ground the rest will kick you to death but hey you managed to take one with you. The ground is the last place you wanna be in a fight and if you find yourself there get up asap.
i have had the pleasur of sparring with both BJJ and judokens and i have trained judo myself. Black belts in judo didnt have anything i couldnt counter or defend against and for some strange reason they was trying to throw me when i delivered blows to them. i know those guys and they were National champions in the national team but i used things that they dont need to worry about in controlled matches so according to them i cheated.
BJJ some i win some i dont, if on the ground sure they have and edge if i cant go for their smaller joints or eyes quick enough, but there is a reason i try to avoid getting on the ground with them.
Most eye opening experience with BJJ thou was when i was jumped in line to a bar from the leader of the local club at the time. The guy liked to start fights and for some reason i was a nice target that night. punches was thrown and he got me in a necklock but the idiot let me go once i taped and aft6er that i got 3 nice hits and he was on the ground.
Sports mentality at its best, conditioned to let go once your oppenent submits. Works in training and competition but bad in real life.
Sure millions around the world can probobly defeat me but hey i can defeat billions with my training.
Now what are the chances that i will get in a fight and need to defend myself. Chances are slim say 10% now what are the chances that the guy/guys attacking me are better trained or some wanna be hooligans?
Martial arts, traditional or moderna, armed or unarmed is only giving you a 50/50 chance tops, if someone slam a chair in the back of your head then you are out despite what training you have.
The right tool for the job can you get a fucking Iron man suit then you will have a good defense, can you get a gun and carry it without problem then fine do it, can you train with and edged weapon and carry it do so. Can you train a martial arts then pick one that you like, if you dont like it then you wont continue with it so it wont do you much good.
Martial training is something that needs to be maintained with continued training or you will loose the edge you can have.
For me guns and knifes is out of the question, i train escrima and knife fighting so i can use it but carrying of said weapon gives a great penalty if arrested and defending with such a weapon makes it hard to defend in court, a “harmless” indestructible umbrella on the other hand is fine.
Kurtis! Thumbs up for bitting the testicles of opponent.(
