Looking up places to train but cant decide
Why are you asking us
Just go to your local gyms and ask
whats up with the constant "do you fight anon? threads?
also that guy is a fucking moron. a man 10 pounds heavier than you is dangerous, that guy seemed 40 to 50 pounds bigger than him.
And he seemed to know how to fight. That looked like a real pull counter, not the Worldstar Lean.
the way his head hit the pavement scared me. imagine bopping some fool and then going to jail for it.
You're right to be scared. Ego fight bullshit is never worth it and can get real fucking hairy in situations like that. If a guy gets serious head trauma or dies you may very well have just sidelined or ruined your whole life. There's actually a law on the books in Australia that allows more severe sentencing for "one punch" cases because it became such an issue for drunken bogans.
It's called a Philly Shell. It was Mayweather's main defensive style. The dude in the op has clearly had boxing training.
Not necessarily, the real issue here is that black shorts actually knows how to fight and white pants is just a drunk retard who overextends and opens his chin up. Then black shorts hits the button with ease.
You either lift for girls or to beat up guys (so you can get girls)
>t. 21 year old
it gets better, anon.
An mma gym or BJJ or Muay Thai gym that does actual sparring should be good
Just want to avoid the ones that constantly wrestle on the ground
Why? That's what sparring is you dummy.
he meant avoid BJJ
> I want to avoid what happens 1/2 of the time when human beings are fighting
Kick boxing or muay thai for striking, wrestling for grappling. Bjj is aight but wrestling is just as good, if not better for fight a stranger you know nothing about
It all comes down to what you want and how the coach is like.
>Was bored with lifting
>decided to pick up judo again since it's pretty popular were I live
>wanted to achieve belts and maybe do some competitions
>first club I join, coach is a complete retard, that sells "self defense" judo
>"anon, you're too old for competitions, forget it. And belts? these are for kids."
>Next club I talk to coach "These are you goals? cool. Come to practice regularly and we'll see to that."
>fast forward two year, got my orange belt and a third place.
Boxing. Everything else is meme.
That guy's clearly trained boxing not a gayy martial art
Yes. I go to a gym that is mostly BJJ but also some Muay Thai. I really like striking and I hit my punching bag a lot.
I did Krav Maga for two years and its not a good martial art.
Why didn't you like it? Isnt it a mix of everything
Different anon, but it's just an example of a little thinking is a dangerous thing. It sounds like a good idea on paper, but you're not going to get the amount of genuine training necessary to become actually effective. You should just do mad bjj first and then some boxing and/or muay thai second.
I am who you are replying to.
Well, I got a good work out in going to class, so that was a positive.
Each class was like:
1. 20 minutes of intense cardio, running, burpies, jump squats, etc
2. 20 minutes of pad work, so one partner holds a pad and the other punches it or knees it
3. 20 minutes of "mannequin drills" where like one partner grabs their opponent's hand or neck and the other partner goes through some choreographed moves to defeat them
Sections (1) and (2) are good workouts, although, not really related to fighting. Punching is fighting of course, but if all you do is punch a bag, you arent actually learning about distance management, defense, timing, or how to punch under pressure where someone is trying to punch you, all of which are critical and necessary skills in striking.
That (3) section was pure bogus. The "attackers" in these drills usually just stand there and let the defender do whatever they want. The situations are not realistic, and the choreographed sequences of moves you are supposed to go through would not work in a real fight, even if you got the opportunity to do them.
Real martial arts classes, like what you would see in muay thai, BJJ, boxing, judo, and wrestling gyms, have some kind of sparring or competitive drilling, where nothing is choreographed, you are actually fighting and trying to win, and you don't actually know what your opponent is going to do in any given moment. That is all really important.
So like at my gym, we do sparing in every class. But even short of sparring, we will do things like, doing rounds of just kicks, where each partner takes turns throwing and blocking kicks. Or we will do a round of sparring where one person is only blocking and the other is only attacking. These are both good ways to train.
Thats kind of the gist of it. Krav Maga "philosophy" also has some pretty big problems, but I have already written a lot here, so I will leave it at that.
Properly done pad work is essentially super light sparring. Practicing combinations is beginner's boxing type shit
Yeah perhaps, but when I mean padwork in Krav Maga I mean like one noob holding a large pad statically and the partner (who is also a noob with 0 technique) throwing some basic combo.
It's commando LARP with killer instinct-tier ultra combo disarms on a compliant opponent
>get in a streetfight
>see wresler coming in for a "clinch"
uuhhhh boxer bros?
Also looking to sign up to some martial art section, not sure which to choose
Which are the safest ones? I'm already a retrd, I don't wanna become even retarderer
Pick your poison. Grappling is safe for the brain (mostly) but is hell on the joints. You will definitely catch some kind of nagging injury and will be more busted up by 50 than most people. Striking is comparatively good for the body, but risks brain damage if you spar hard or compete. Even sparring light is bad for you if you get hit in the head too much.
