How to become strong and tough

Hey IST
I tried to break up a fight at my work (public transport), and got my shit kicked in.
Some drunk straight out of prison dude was bashing a woman, so I tried to stop it, but didn’t end too well for me.
I just want to know what you guys think the best martial arts training is for general self defence and the ability to take someone down, and I guess just stop them.
Im 6’1” but I’m a skinny fat ass, trying to cut before bulking up. I plan on bulking up to become a big bloat lord just so I’m not a weakling.
Anyway I’ve got a broken nose and my eye is fucked but the real pain is the embarrassment of getting wrecked.
Any advice I’d appreciated

      Also BJJ

      martial arts training, mma or bjj
      also lift and gain more weight

      Just do some general mma training. Wrestling is the best martial art. Get used to other peoples strength and being in a physical confrontation so you dont get overwhelmed by adrenaline.

                If you practice wrestling for self-defense, you need to adjust technique for concrete environments. I've seen multiple wrestlers die from slamming their head and neck into the concrete.

                The traditional double leg takedown in the gym usually has the executor slam his head into the mats because you position your head on the side of their body. I saw a video of someone doing a double leg in a fight and they slammed their head on the concrete when they scored the takedown and died.

                The adjustment is to place your head on the enemies belly as you do the takedown so your head is cushioned by their stomach.

                Single legs have to do this as well though it's more awkward.

                So a Karate double leg. Karate stands as possibly the best self defense martial arts. Teaches you to punch as hard as you can. Teaches you to kick as hard as you can. Drills take downs and trips. As long as you avoid the competition stuff Karate is great. Mix in some Judo or old school jui jitsu and you have a great mixed martial art.

                You don't train grappling to try pulling guard in a street fight. Anyone serious about training grappling (like cops primarily) is training it to learn takedowns, takedown defense, and to hold bottom position. It isn't something they training to keep from throwing punches in confrontations.

    Judo + BJJ
    or
    Wrestling + BJJ

    Either of these will get you 90% of the way there by the time you're a blue belt. so in the space of a year you'll be able to handle almost anyone without grappling training as long as they don't out weigh you by a massive amount.

    If you want a striking art, boxing is the go to, anything that involves kicking is too risky in a street fight unless you're at a high level. But I did like training Muay Thai in combination with grappling. Since it focuses so heavily on the clinch it synergizes really well with either Judo or BJJ and gives you a ton of conditioning training so you can take a punch and learn how to effectively defend.

    BJJ is what your are looking for. As long as you don't get punched right on the chin, BJJ beats everything one-on-one. The next weak spots are the temples, but attacks against them are will in most cases result in broken knuckles.

    Do BJJ, buy treat it as an internal journey. You will get your ass kicked by dyels for at least 6 months and you will suffer from all kind of regrets before you actually gets somewhat decent.

          >A picture of someone saying Judo is modern jiu jitsu proves jiu jitsu is ineffective

          How? Its like saying that guns are modern cross bows, therefore crossbows are ineffective.

          Anyway, when people talk about jiu jitsu today, they are mostly thinking of like Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, which isnt really that connected to ancient japanese jiu jitsu. In fact BJJ comes from Judo guys in Brazil, so according to your modernity-heirarchy, you could say BJJ is modern Judo or something dumb like that.

          Judo is largely about throwing people into the ground, hopefully so hard they are incapacitated. The insight of the original Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guys was that someone who is on their back on the ground is at least "still in the fight" if not dangerous from that position. So, they are simply not even the same kind of martial art anymore. Judo is about taking the fight to the ground, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is about how to fight once you are on the ground. Where one ends the other begins.

              The surveillance infrastructure of select cities is akin to a max security prison. Facial recognition is all you need when cameras are everywhere.

              Also Cell phone and technology companies keep an active record of all cell phone locations using cell tower triangulation with accuracy with in inches of true location.
              Most crimes are solved these days by getting a record of what cell phones were in the area.

              If you do a high visibility crime like a shooting, you WILL be recorded by the public and the video will make it to social media.

    When you help or protect others, you walk with God. When you walk with God, there is no shame. Consider, you lost the fight, but your goal was to protect the lady being beaten, and you did that, although you lost, you still protected her. I protected someone once and got a double black eye, though I did not lose. Our injuries are the shame, and the pride.

    To answer your question, eat clean and a lot, run for cardio, do squats and shadow box, and take wrestling and boxing classes and in 6 months you will be the most dangerous hand to hand fighter at your work, but you must put the work in to become that. If someone has a weapon you will still be in danger and I recommend carrying multiple tasers and bear spray in case people group up on you.

        Kempo would be good, but takes a lot of dedication to put into practice. You could also look for Karate. Muay Thai has useful skills and very good training practices that you don't find in a lot of martial arts. I would train in more than one thing if you can. Boxing is also an option as they have the best training practices in my opinion.

      Having done both, I would say that Muay Thai is a lot more practical in a fight than taekwondo, it's very direct and agressive, tkd has a lot of impractical flashy kicks, and teaches some bad habits like chambering punches at your waist, also I found a lot of the blocks to be rather ineffective

      • 2 months ago

        tae kwon do has degraded quite a bit. The more traditional forms are a lot better. The blocking is often taught very stiff but if you loosen up they are very effective. Coming from the waist is a bit of bad practice but you can throw punches from the waist in a fight very effectively. Look no further than Anderson Silva and Muhammad Ali. The main problem again is being very stiff. A lot of practices in Tae Kwon Do are to build strength and speed and not for practical use. The problem is that they do not make distinctions between what is what. Crescent kicks are for hip flexibility and building the muscles for throwing roundhouses, side kicks, and hook kicks. Back kicks are used to build power in side kicks and spinning kicks. Axe kicks help speed up how fast you can reset after roundhouses or front kicks. The problem is that the way competitions are now the masters have lower fight IQ despite knowing a lot of techniques. Muay Thai has a high fighter IQ do to the sport being much more combative. Personally I think muay thai is often lacking in technique. The less practical techniques are removed in favor of practical ones, but this also cuts out the benefits in flexibility and power that training those other techniques yield.

    Mma is simply the best, specially for untrained bums if you want to fight for self defence.
    All other styles like boxing, kickboxing, muay thai, wrestling and judo are all great too but all are too specialized and don't cover defense for most scenarios.
    Ideally focus on mma and cross train in another style for half a year and then move to the other of the list i mentioned, this way you will be very well rounded.
    For strength and conditioning, lift heavy, lift explosively and do plyos, for cardio run a lot for intensity rather than distance, 1 mile runs at 7 minute mile pace is better than 3 mile run at 10-12 minute mile pace, do a lot of sprints.
    Best way to take a punch is to alway grit your teeth whenever you are in punching range, doesn't matter what is happening, grit your teeth as you get closer and that way even if you get hit it won't be so bad because you are bracing for impact.
    For your neck, train isometric holds as you want your neck to be as stiff as possible to absorb impact better, obviously dynamic reps are also good but your want to focus on time and isometrics rather than reps and weight.

    As for bjj, bjj is fucking useless, the karate of grappling, in a self defense fight you'll get biten or have your balls squeezed and if someone doesn't like what they are seeing, you'll get your head kicked like a soccer ball, avoid the ground at all cost, focus on techniques that end the fight as soon as possible.
    Even in a sport context bjj is only good for bjj, even in mma ta lot of bjj experts get humiliated by average mma grapplers.

      First of all, there isn’t a single guy in mma that doesn’t train bjj, bjj against someone who doesn’t know bjj is brutally effective. There is a reason why rounds in the ufc only go 3 minutes, because otherwise grappling would be even more dominant than it already is.

        Well they are specialized, but how are they _too_ specialized?

        Like if you got really good at boxing, and you didnt know anything about kicking or grappling, I think you would likely have good self defense skills. You would be dangerous to the average person.

        It just turns out there are a lot of ways to be dangerous. That doesnt mean to that focusing on any particular way is "too specialized" or somehow deficient for not including the others.

        >Best way to take a punch is to alway grit your teeth whenever you are in punching range, doesn't matter what is happening, grit your teeth as you get closer and that way even if you get hit it won't be so bad because you are bracing for impact.

        tf is this?

        You take damage when your brain shakes. How tf are your teeth going to protect your brain? Sudden and violent motion to the skull is what you want to avoid. So you want to brace your head, and make it stiff on your body. The best way to do that is to angle your head forward and tuck your chin into your chest. Like pic related (you could even go more extreme). If he gets punched in the face, his head is angled against the direction of the blow, and his body (via support from his neck) absorbs some of the force and most importantly his head does not launch back independently of his body.

        Is true that rolling with the punches is a lot better because it reduces the impact but bro that is a extremely high level technique, not only you need to be able to see the punch coming, you need the reflexes to move in time and the distance management to move to the right direction because if you do it wrong you can easily put yourself in a worse position that makes the impact worse.
        Rolling with the punches is so vague and too advanced for most people to pull off, in that case just tell them to not get punch at all lmao, like
        >Oh you want to know how to take a punch? just don't get hit bro lol.
        Is not useful for the average person that just want to be able to defend themselves and either way, even the best boxers can't dodge everything, you are going to get hit so is better to know how to take a punch that you can't dodge in case you still get hit.
        Obviously defense is important but knowing how to take a punch is equally important.

              For self defense? Not too bad, as long as the other guy hasn't practiced a single hip throw in his life. If the guy is half-competent he won't have too hard a time clinching you and throwing you to hell and back. I'd say peak a boo is probably an overall better stance for self defense since you cover up your chin to allow you to rush the other guy while also keep a lower center of gravity and something between the two of you to make clinching a bit harder.

    You want striking and grappling. Whatever is most accessible to you. If you live in a place with lots of different clubs/gyms then you can have your pick. The best would be MMA that teaches you to use grappling and striking in tandem. But if all you have is a boxing gym nearby, or a judo club do that, do whatever is most expedient for you.

    Don't worry about bulking up or cutting right now. Focus on strength training and physical conditioning. Once you start lifting/training your body will improve. All the diet advice you need is eat whole foods, eat enough build muscle, or let yourself be hungry enough to lose fat.

    Good luck and godspeed. All you need to do is make sure whatever you choose to do is something that you want to do every day and can get excited for. If you aren't satisfied and it feels empty that means you need to change something. Also, give it lots of time, progress with fighting is slow and you will won't see a lot of results with your skill for a few months.

          there is no mma style, mma fighters just combine skills that they like using and add them to their game. Someone's striking base could be boxing, muay thai, karate, taekwondo, their grappling base could be bjj, freestyle wrestling, greco-roman, sambo, judo. Look at Khabib and then look at Michel Pereira and tell me there's an MMA style.

            Mma means mixed martial arts, MIXED MARTIAL ARTS.
            It means that you ARE MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS
            If a wrestler like khabib uses some boxing combinations to set up his takedowns, then his is MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS.
            If a striker like Pereira is using strikes to defend takedowns, uses takedown defense then what is he doing? You guessed it, HE IS MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS.
            The style of mma is MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS, if a kickboxers adds tdd or takedowns he is MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS.
            If a grappler adds kickboxing to his styles, then he is MIXING THE MARTIAL ARTS.

      Hey IST
      I tried to break up a fight at my work (public transport), and got my shit kicked in.
      Some drunk straight out of prison dude was bashing a woman, so I tried to stop it, but didn’t end too well for me.
      I just want to know what you guys think the best martial arts training is for general self defence and the ability to take someone down, and I guess just stop them.
      Im 6’1” but I’m a skinny fat ass, trying to cut before bulking up. I plan on bulking up to become a big bloat lord just so I’m not a weakling.
      Anyway I’ve got a broken nose and my eye is fucked but the real pain is the embarrassment of getting wrecked.
      Any advice I’d appreciated

      Don't do this. Assault with a deadly weapon is a serious offense.

      Carry a roll of quarters in your pocket and put it in your dominant hand before you throw the first punch. If you know how to throw a punch your first becomes a boulder.

    >I just want to know what you guys think the best martial arts training is for general self defence and the ability to take someone down, and I guess just stop them.
    if you want purely self defence, and if you are 6'1, which is ideal, I'd say
    >get more grounded and stable. Meaning, get more muscular from legts to back. Being strong and stable is main thing in any fight or manual work. Go play ice hockey for skating, do squats, learn dancing, archery etc. anything to be STABLE. No matter what kung fu master you are, if you fall down, and your body has not some autopilot stability inside (muscle memory) you won't do any good in a fight.
    >learn confidence and projection. I am not even that big of a guy (30yo, looking like 20, 6'0, but I am a very strong person and still have been in an actual aggressive fight just few times. Often it all ends with simply psychologically intimidating the other person. Look how animals do it. Just have the presence of confidence and most people will back off. Yes, even bigger ones. And don't be stupid with it- you obviously won't intimidate a drunk military teen the same way you'd intimidate some drug thug. I think this "weapon" of words is extremely good, but you need to be intelligent when using it.
    I'd say, if you are a strong and stable person, getting close to your supposed opponent and strongly and loudly addressing them will kick some fight out of them right there.
    >ok, and for actual throwing of hands I believe boxing is the best.
    Learning to block, throw the most natural 1-2 punches a human body can, and learning to dodge and slip is 99.99% of anything you'll ever need in a fight.
    I think you'd need a coach who'd teach you boxing for exact purpose of self-defence, i..e less focused on dancing around and jabbing. then again - taking a liking to boxing will make learning easier.

    • 2 months ago

      cont.
      The beauty of boxing is that it is overall very natural and simple, and you often repeat the movements enough that you can do them on autopilot. Especially to have the ability to react to sudden attempt of cheapshot.
      My personal experience - some thugs wanted to rob me, One comes to me aggressivelly and I see from his movements that he is going to punch me. I am fucking drunk as fuck at the moment btw. And without thinking I slipped his punch jabbed him, which surprised him and immediately punched him out cold with a cross. All on autopilot.

      regarding other suggestions
      >guns and weapons usually make people carrying them apply them when situation didn't call for it. E.g. my family are very pro-guns and all hunters, and e.g. father deliberately does not carry pistols around, because he said he has had an urge to solve any conflict with just pulling out a piece, and he said it is a very dangerous feeling and can end up with shooting someone who is just dumb and possessed no threat.

      I am not sure if grappling is any good in a street-fight, then again grapplers are super stable and to be able to throw an opponent or grab him and control him any w

      oh, and even though kicking is really good, if you know it, I'd avoid focusing on it. Too hard to execute. I personally was involved with soccer and some martial arts from childhood, and still when I eventually decided to do sports for health and leave the fighting for extreme situations, I only retained two kicks, if I ever need them - the karate type turning sidekick. You can crack some bones with that.
      look at this vid

      and the bruce lee style jumping sidekick - you can deliver almost all mass*velocity your body can muster with it at a distance of about 2 meters - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uCPc8nHUv7s

      There are some individuals who can beat multiple opponents. This requires a different kind of fighter though and a different mentality. Not very many people on this level. The absolute minimum is to be at least 200 pounds and lean. Capable of many different kicks. Capable of many judo and wrestling throws. Incredible flexibility. Able to throw a powerful punch from many angles. Able to take blunt force trauma that could kill a person and keep fighting. You will have to be able to take baseball bat to the back of the head and be able to keep going. Looking at these requirement you see that you would have to weight lift, train multiple martial arts, do yoga, and do body hardening. It isn't impossible, but it would be an 8 hour routine 5 days a week and your body might not keep up.

    The first step is knowing the squaring up and fighting is a horrible idea, just immediately attack. Don't have a clench fist at the start, if you close your first right before hitting someone you'll be faster try it: First hold and fist and strike the air a few times and then try with a relaxed fist that tenses up at the end, faster right? All in all though, you should be using a palm strike since it covers more surface and has more of a pushing motion which is favorable in the courts. Grabbing someone by the collar or throat and immediately taking out the leg from behind them is a good start.

    You need to read Rory Miller. He's essential for anything to do with self-defence. Look up his credentials if you doubt me.
    I'd also advise you ignore people in this thread who suggest wrestling/ground-based martial arts or any art which inflexibly focuses on striking. Neither of those are a good idea when:
    1) a guy might have buddies nearby who can come over as you choke their friend out and kick your head all over the pavement, or
    2) you're trying to strike a guy into submission while he's absolutely pumped on adrenaline to a point where he won't even notice his bones breaking or other permanent damage

    Sorry you got your shit kicked in, anon. You did the right thing, thanks for trying. Good luck -- and, seriously, read Miller.

        I completely agree -- Miller even covers this exact point in his work, and he covers the freeze response extensively. Reading alone definitely isn't enough. But training without knowing your shit is inadequate, too, even if it's better than just reading. Knowing the social ins and outs of self-defence, knowing how stuff like the freeze response works, knowing how to keep your cool, knowing what does and doesn't constitute self-defence, knowing the legal implications of stuff -- these things aren't really covered by MMA gyms, BJJ gyms, boxing gyms, etc, unless the instructor happens to have a mind for it.
        Those gyms are all too often frequented by dudes who'll want to "learn how to fight", and so the logistics of things like the freeze response don't concern them -- they're tourists, and fuckheaded ones at that.

        But again, we're in agreement. Tough sparring and drilling desperate situations with good training partners is essential. But reading Miller's work is, too. It's relatively brief and the books are worth their weight in gold.

    boxing for beating the shit out of the guy, and always try to keep the fight on your feet, and wrestling to learn how to body slam someone and avoid being taken down. I seen hundreds of leddit street fights and many of them end with some guy suplexing the other and making him dab from the brain damage of landing on their heads.

    every street fight starts with boxing so learn to throw a jab idiot, that will keep people off their foot work

    judo is good because you can learn to tackle and throw but there are some pro wrestling throws that judo won't teach like a classic suplex

      >classic suplex
      Risky on hard ground, it's all too easy to knock the shit out of yourself by landing with the back of your head on concrete, even if you're skilled. The same set up but with a slam or pile drive is much better.

    train a grappling art + some mma sparring - any striking art is a non starter because the amount of brain damage you must accrue until you're proficient enough to fight is just dumb.

    grappling martial arts don't come with the cost of head punches, and if you spar a little mma (where you will get punched in the head, but atleast not as much as full time striking), you will know how to takedown and control people who are trying to hit you.

    >I’m a skinny fat ass, trying to cut before bulking up.

    I don't think "cut" means what you think it means. You said in your post you are "skinny fat ass", which to me means you have little to no muscle at all.

    "Cutting" in the bodybuilding world is a period where we eat on a calorie defecit whilst consuming around 150-200g of protein a day. We do this to lose fat, but as you probably know, you inevitably lose muscle whenever you lose fat. By eating high levels of protein, we can slow down the rate at which we lose muscle. But, we will still always lose muscle as we also lose weight.

    I don't really understand why you would want to cut, seeing as it seems you don't have enough muscle to afford to lose. You can't really go on a cut if you don't have a lot of muscle mass to begin with - that's why we bulk before we cut, so that we can afford to lose a bit of muscle whilst we lose fat.

    If you have no muscle to begin with, your cut is just going to be you losing weight in general.

    Also - Krav Maga sounds like the best option for your situation.

      Thats not such a bad story. Before clicking your image I was worried it would be like "I did 3 years of MT and I got my shit kicked in by one guy in a fist fight".

      He kicked one guy hard enough to incapacitate him, and he managed to drag the other guy into a clinch. He did this against two opponents simultaneously. That is impressive; much better than what an untrained person would manage to do.

      He obviously suffered tremendously to his knife wounds, but it doesnt seem to be the fault of his MA training. It is not like he would fair better to a knife if he had not trained in MA. It does sound like he was blaming his MT training for making him choose to get into a clinch, but it really just sounds like he didnt anticipate a knife, which he would have done if he wasnt trained in MT either.

    Unfortunately, 90% of the time the bigger and stronger man wins. You could train a martial art every day but the bigger guy will win. Especially in a bus or train where the assailant can use the tight hallways to gain leverage during a grapple.

    Best Martial Art? Most likely any type of boxing-based type that involves a lot of clinching.
    Optimal would be Mixed Martial Arts. Although I believe a perfect punch beats a perfect takedown or a perfect rear naked choke.

      Possibly, but given how you simply can't train striking at the same intensity levels you can grappling consider the likelihood of achieving a perfect punch as opposed to a perfect takedown or submission.

          Anon, I can roll with the exact same intensity as I fight in tournaments during my BJJ classes, but I wouldn't be able to train more than once a week if I sparred like I fight in matches during my boxing classes. There is an inherent gap on how similar practice and application are for every martial art, however that gap.is far, far wider for striking than it is for grappling

            That is your fault or your trainers. There is many fighters who sparred everyday and often several times a day. If you are getting too injured to spar everyday you need a lot more practice and maybe a better coach or routine. Are you watching videos of your sparring matches? That can help a lot of fighters. Start from there and maybe double up on your calisthenics.

              Anon, I do spar regularly. That's the point, it's sparring, it doesn't feel anything even remotely like fighting, in which I'll 100% try to take the other guy's head off with each punch and receive the same from him in return. Try actually fighting to the point you get knocked out every day. That is simply not possible.

                Many fighters sparred exactly that way though and they were absolute killers. GSP and Mike Tyson to name some off the top of my head. spar for 5 rounds 3 minutes a piece where you and your opponent are trying to put each other away. It is a tried a true method. Some fighters had more sparring matches than days between their fights.

                This is the opposite of what I know about Thai fighters, and I do Muay Thai. Thai fighters spar famously light. Basically just playing tag.

        90% of people never reach perfect grappling levels either way - this is reserved for athletes who have been training their respective martial art for their whole life.
        It is definitely more complicated to master a perfect takedown or submission than it would be to throw a perfect punch. The learning curve is not quite as steep. Then again, you could be right in a sense that the average Joe on the street has no idea about any martial art, so even poor technique will work as if it was perfect on an untrained stranger, depending on size differences.

        MMA being a stand alone martial art is the most retarded thing I have ever heard. It is in the name that it is supposed to be a conglomerate of multiple martial arts. Just fucking study two martial arts and mix them together. If you go to a gym the teaches MMA most likely you are going to get no in depth knowledge of anything.

        MMA is not a martial art of itself, I agree. I didn't mean it that way. Yet, knowing multiple techniques to use is not a bad thing. Mixing two arts together is nothing else but that. In MMA gyms, there are some inclinations toward certain arts. In most gyms it is just BJJ mixed with kickboxing and that's it.

          Yeah but the only mma fighters who can kick decently have take karate. The only ones who can land and defend from submissions do grappling. The knock out guys all have a martial arts in their background. Other martial arts create much more spectacular fighters. A guy who has never done Karate can't just do a Karate kick. A guy who hasn't done judo can't do a judo throw. You can't just use a technique you haven't trained to use. It is no different than the guys who emulate Bruce Lee movies. You would have to have someone of one of those disciplines teach you those moves.

        I disagree, even if you are experienced in, for example, Catch Wrestling and Muay Thai to a substantial degree there would be no guarantee you'd be able to effectively transition from one context to the other or be able to combine elements from each into innovative and effective movements. Training under an MMA ruleset can give you the necessary context to develop this particular skillset you won't get by studying a "pure" style

          Maybe with a lot of sparring. MMA is just so broad that that there doesn't seem to be a good way to develop someone into a super dynamic fighter without at least many trainers from multiple martial arts. You are going to have to focus on something as a fighter. The best always do. Also transitioning sports is not difficult for fighters with a high fight IQ. Most of the greats came from another discipline entirely. Kickboxing, wrestling, boxing, jui jitsue, muay thai, etc.

            I'm not talking about transitioning between sports, I'm talking about being able to transition from striking and grappling mid fight, using punches to set up take down, kicks to check grapples, wrestle to block avenues to control spacing, etc. That's not something you'll get to practice without sparring within the ruleset of MMA.

      Boxing has great training regiments engraved into the sport, but it lacking some areas. It is the perfect martial art to pair up with any other martial arts. Take boxing and find another martial art to train in at the same time. After about 6-8 months you should be able to combine the two into an effective fighting style.
