jomqodwkuxmuhqm4d
I agree but you guys are talking about a sport. Not a street fight where you don't have a ring, rules, equipment
wlfvhiynuqsy4d
I think the stuff I did for competition - totes useless for street fighting
dinfdzxelhn4d
but at the end of the day, being tiny and 50 kilos soaking wet means I will still get beating by a dude regardless, so it's not like I think it's going to be the end all be all
yjhthhzoqpyk4d
But other elements of it - def useful
mbuehdjxlicw4d
So yea I agree with cmymnepcsdzpvugb as in you can't just make a blanket statement
wukdovujzeci4d
That all martial arts is useleas
clemqjuztdbd4d
Also there's a lot of terrible strip mall schools
qwnoyfaqp4d
kbwiiszxubzyx exactly, while modern MMA like BJJ could be used in a street fight
icuszqeul4d
Or against a dog haha
ajiygtzdcibj4d
Which honestly don't teach you effectively
ppploehwuba4d
STOP FIGHTING DOGS
zqtysmwsmpie4d
I know right?
cbojmttlt4d
No not all, but most classic martial arts is useless
onszgnarlqva4d
Can we just feed the dogs ?
uujvnyoza4d
Is what I meant
mvmkiaafw4d
Against dogs LOL
euosbqmzuwu4d
yes let's feed the dogs
wregwwgwfzds4d
Eh but there's so many different martial arts
xjoyuqrgtguu4d
And a lot of classic ones included in that can be pretty damn effective
rrgpsbxyrhbvycw4d
I feel that somebody would have to be a trained fighter to beat me on the street in some place that actually would be an issue. Like a street, bar, etc. Most people are not. I'm not saying I'm a tough guy but after 10 years of training, I am 90% sure I'm going to strike your eye, neck, rib, something before you realize what is happening
ikkdnvjrgjodzsn4d
That's when we get to me against you and no way out
oretltmqfsgv4d
I do agree tho that there's a lot of shit martial arts teachers and schools tho
ulfvsumyorhgykp4d
oh yes
nxunzwzukel4d
yeah but that's because there's a lot of shit EVERYTHING
avbduutqwnvehri4d
This is my third martial art
ujoyshsfdmta4d
Haha so I started to get into boxing and wanted to do more grappling stuff but then started nomading
pznfpjopxwpp4d
And got obsessed with climbing
jzvkenexcnmolia4d
But I feel it's pretty effective most of the time. It's a blanket statement but I just mentioned a problem with BJJ. Multiple attackers are an issue
mrnzveqgpxu4d
yeah the problem is martial arts is hard to do nomading
rtznlvdbolhh4d
Now I can just throw my trad rack at someone and call it a day
ivmqglrouqz4d
aerial silks is another thing I wanted to take up but it's super hard to do nomading
urvakxfwoqvr4d
Yea I think a lot of arts have areas of critique
qblfnhnymfih4d
And weaknesses but I wouldn't say all around useless
mxeitgtkkmnc4d
But we might just be getting into semantics here
crurwfgdpswuhbw4d
So I'm talking about something like this www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1F-vXRFgyM&t=63s
dizupupjsqye4d
I do like to think that even if I'm petite and did more of an Olympic style sport having gotten punched and kicked in the head for like 15 years hopefully that factors into me having enough wherewithall to eye jab and bite
bewpkrullryh4d
Even when in Pai
jbajrwqxgawc4d
Pain
cixosxwdlosl4d
But who knows
nujmbujcviotbzg4d
These are really attacks from not a pro fighter (but are you a pro fighter) but effective in about 90% scenarios. We could nit pick which is why I don't get really involved in martial arts talks. They all attempt to shit on each other
ecaihaolfoag4d
Shall look when in cafe UCB6ZHPDY!
nokthxzcpxwa4d
Lolll true
trghavvqlkrg4d
I just wanna do all of them!
qyoksxfaegxwkdv4d
Really defense against attacks which is what most people need from a self defense. Not a sport. Not a game.
dwkgaxuhkxnmbdi4d
notice I'm not using "fighting"
vdpazpzrgvzb4d
๐Ÿ‘
kjshizycxwwb4d
We started with body guard dogs ended with self defense
dibqzdqxswis4d
LOL
fwdmjjmevtnkgdq4d
lol true
bkimmaqvyujmzkd4d
Still I stand by the eyes. They are very vulnerable if you can get to them. Just something that I wanted to point out and could help someone someday so it's good to remember
omcdguhcsgr4d
realistically what will happen is I'll just cry
drzztmaukpz4d
so
wtxeybtcczz4d
๐Ÿ˜‚
ycmpmyyd4d
Self defense classes by police trainers are probably good, no martial arts woo woo stuff
stqocokm4d
Probably Krav Maga and so on is good too
eqeieqjawz4d
Is there a name for the kind of martial art that emphasizes not fighting, but also not running away? I think this guy has a black belt in it (slightly NSFW) t.ly/wmbne|t.ly/wmbne
ozirlobvmaw4d
I do Krav Maga, Iโ€™m at the green belt. I would say thereโ€™s some practical stuff and stuff I would never use.. so in general maybe too much stuff to learn, but better than nothing. And I like the exercise anyways so.
vypgguksoyutlvl4d
I would put almost every martial artist that I know that has been training for something like 20 years up against any of those police things ( which is a martial arts/fighting system in itself). The reason why those programs exist is because they are trying to get the best bang for the buck. What I mean is that to be a police officer you need to be somewhat proficient in a self defense within a small amount of time. Let's say a year. Most do not have the luxury of training years. Those years really matter. I think the only way people can be convinced of this is actually training with someone like that. It almost seems like magic. The devil is in the details and that is all we are talking about. Most martial artists take years to be somewhat decent. I've trained with people that I know 100% could kill me. I'm not saying that as a sensational thing to say it's that their skill is so finely tuned that what ever I do, they can exploit. If my line of my punch is off they can divert it, if my balance is on one leg a bit much and they realize that, they can pull/push/sweep the leg and so on. They seem to have a counter to all of my techniques. That is what I was talking about the dog pulling you. That is what dogs do. They pull apart things. If I can feel that this is happening, I don't fight the dog, I go into it. The dog needs you to fight it to tear the flesh. If I go with him, he does not get the desired effects. The effect would be like trying to go down the dogs mouth. I know this is a ridiculous thing but if you think about what I said, it totally makes sense. This could buy you enough time to find the eyes. Why? because the eyes are right by the mouth that is biting you hence.
irsokeqtjlmieao4d
rfroxvzyewvp Understandable. There is a video somewhere where a guy that I trained with shows 3 different reponses to an attack. They start out pretty elaborate. The last one is just a single punch that lands a blow. Which one is best? The simplest one is
kqzobqdxtfv4d
Yeah, thereโ€™s like stuff Attack with a knife from the side, attack with a knife from diagonal etcโ€ฆ Under pressure, try to remember quickly what to do in all these situationsโ€ฆ not sure itโ€™s possible unless you practice like 6 hours per day
duqogecncyhbzon4d
That's where I feel I'm at. It's like What Bruce Lee talked about (does not matter if you love him or hate him) he does not fear the man who trained 10,000 strikes, he fears the man who trained one strike 10,000 times
sgquvvutkfgasfn4d
It's all muscle memory.
ujydlzcxfhhqqtj4d
My response for throwing a "natural" punch is very different from when I started. I've literally overwritten that response
gbijtyvealg4d
Better event not to use your fists -> open palm is better
vvnejzvoclvwtvl4d
true. That was a sign of a skilled fighter
fmwdeoewqst4d
I guess that could go in the fitness channel ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜„
pkdludzelhvewwi4d
AND THAT IS HOW YOU DEFEND AGAINST ROGUE PETS
tnlnwhlritge4d
i saw my dog nemesis again today
stjdsihshmaa4d
just as poodly
jexlmbqxvpzv4d
just as rogueish
esuenpmjtksk4d
he ignored me tho
ipxcyggqrer4d
Like dogs in Chiang Mai in the back alleys at night VS the day. 2 different kind of dogs (even if they are the same individuals)
iqpebkdwhro4d
They will ignore you during the day, bark at you like crazy at night
zfhpbznex3d
xrzhylmlljwo so true
kwfwjyhps3d
I feel there were 10x more stray dogs in Chiang Mai in 2013 than now
mpmatsmfz3d
Used to get followed everywhere at night
opaagmdoc3d
Should not forget "Everyone has a plan until they get punched" so probably taking any martial art will train you to not freeze when shit hits the fan
uqruwdletfh3d
It just gives you more chances of survival IMO and better reflexes, but you wonโ€™t be like Jason Bourne unless you train full time (even then)
fncnjxokbek3d
Whatโ€™s funny is that sometimes just hearing them was frightening, but then you realize they are like corgis mixed with whatever, they didnโ€™t look threatening at all :P
edvxwmwwbuz3d
Werenโ€™t you the one that had to throw stuff at dogs at some point?
wslxhavzgyvjvw3d
I took aikido as a kid and recently someone tried to tackle me as a joke on the beach and realised that after 10 years those reflexes still came out. That was a pretty comforting feeling tbh
ycaixftqilqmiw3d
donโ€™t know how useful aikido is against a dog though ๐Ÿ˜‚
sckqfeolbdollxul3d
I have to bite the bullet and take some classes when I get back to the US.
enrqpcfxagpegjjm3d
I've heard a lot of good about aikido
spiyscvxvftwtfi3d
This actually is a great conversation about real world tactics. I think I'm going to try and put together a video emphasizing the points I'm trying to make. People are confusing what the difference between 'real' and sport. Sports = rules. Real = no rules. I'll attempt to show techniques of what I mean by both. This is not trying to prove somebody wrong it's more about asking yourself honestly what you want from a martial art. Youtube is terrible and most videos are from very enthusiastic students with maybe a couple of years at best of training pumping out videos. Most skilled practitioners would never really get involved in that because....why? Most talk about things like this is an exercise in the dunning kruger effect. Like anything, the more you know about something the more you realize what you don't know. I'll attempt to approach it from an objective point of view and also with the realization that every system has its flaws and weaknesses. You just have to decide what you need from it. Hopefully this will be a learning experience for myself and others. Also fun. ๐Ÿ™‚

I need to invent a phone for cats. I really want to be able to call Seรฑor and ask him how heโ€™s doing.
crlacwrurhizc3d
Like a walki talki on their collar
uvelavyrlooidw3d
I remember being a whole subreddit of โ€œtexts with dogโ€ - canโ€™t post links, but theyโ€™re funny enough to google
pgnchkjaksqvv3d
Hahaha. Yep.
zqmhozyrtvaih2d
These are fantastic.
ojmpvpgzeirjyryz22h
Can anyone translate or are those fake characters?
rytslgjg22h
Itโ€™s Japanese kana which is a syllable based alphabet.. the cat is saying โ€œsasarereโ€.. the ladies are saying โ€œseru seruโ€. Translation suggests cat is saying something like โ€œI biteโ€ and the ladies are possibly calling the bluff โ€œdo itโ€ .. thereโ€™s probably a pun in there somewhere, โ€œrereโ€ seems like a possible sound effect for purring
