I think muay thai is the best because it teaches you how to strike with almost all striking surfaces but you should also train bjj to learn what to do when you are on the ground....or maybe should I not complicate this and just go to an mma training?
>>128084It’s judo. It was always judo
Unironically Judo. One thing to punch someone, a whole another to throw someone.
>>128086>>128106>>128111Is this much different than aikido? I know someone who had been doing aikido for years and then just got punched and knocked out by one guy in the nightclub. I also know someone who was doing aikido, krav maga and muay thai and says aikido is the worst and muay thai is the best.
>>128124>Is this much different than aikido?Extremely. > I also know someone who was doing aikido, krav maga and muay thaiDon’t hang out with people stupid enough to do aikido and Krav Maga.
>>128124you literaly just toss them to the ground and stomp their face,
>>128084BJJ trained with a understanding of the Gracie Combative courses is still the best. Same sized Judo practitioner isn't beating it imo. Like you could get off a throw and knock them out but you'll probably just end up on the ground and get beat up.
There is no best martial art because they usually only specialize in 1 or 2 out of the 3 key areas: - Striking- Fighting in the clinch- Submission GrapplingAlso it depends on your body type and size. Ideally you want a solid striking style like Boxing, Muay Thai, Kyokushin or its offshoots, Savate, or Sanda. Other SE Asian styles like Lethwei, Pradal Serey, Tomoi, Muay Lao are also good ones to pursue if you can find them. Then you want a good wrestling base: Greco-Roman, Freestyle, US Collegiate, Judo, Sombo, Sumo, Bokh, Pehlwani, or whatever you can find that does throws, trips, & takedowns. Lastly you need to be versed on how to fight on the ground with submissions AND pins. Pins are seriously overlooked and are incredibly useful in a fight. So Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Sombo, Catch Wrestling, Luta Livre, and anything else that helps you give positional dominance, transitional control, and slap a joint-lock or choke. I myself do Boxing and Judo because they're cheap as fuck and they complement each other well. All I need is Muay Thai to learn shin conditioning so I can low kick, knee, elbow, and how to do neck-wrestling.
>>12812490% of aikido require the opponent to work with you a lot. The exception being some of the wrist locks they teach.
>>128084>>128124Judo is enough to avoid getting knocked out or thrown around, then get a chance to escape
>>128170This. Great post. Someone who actually understand combat.
>>128124Everyone who responded to you is correct about aikido being shit but I want to point out also that there’s no martial art that makes you impervious to getting knocked out by a sucker punch. Don’t go to shithole night clubs I’m general if you’re concerned about that.
>>128170>Ideally you want a solid striking stylegun>Then you want a good wrestling basestiletto>Lastly you need to be versed on how to fight on the ground with submissions AND pinsstiletoyour bjj submission will do jak shit when they start to stab you
>>128084ideally I think it's best to start with one at a time if you've never done any martial arts. I think you should muay thai for a few months, and then when you feel accustomed to your new routine, start attending some bjj classes. (vice versa works too). After about a year or two you could get into MMA if you want
>>128124>aikidoThere is a reason that the founder of Aikido originally only allowed students who already were trained by another art to start training with him. Todays schools are garbage, they are led by guys who never trained real fighting. The founder though... look up some old videos of him, its crazy. he looks like he is moving like an old grandpa, but he is throwing his students like they were toys. And the crazy part is you can see they try to resist. Do no "I have to fly because it is sensai who touched me" bullshit.At best Aikido is a more refined Judo with hellish joint locks, but normally you get garbage mc dojo stuff.
>>128084Im saying this as a muay thai guy.Grappling cant be beaten. Judo, wrestling, and jiu-jitsu simply cant be beaten.
>>128336Yeah but cut kicks to someone who doesn't know how to check them can help. Of course all it takes is for them is to grab a hold of you and take you down to the ground. It's what Cro Cop had to do against Yoshida to make him quit.

Muay Thai is the most deadmliest of all the marital arts. From far and wide, extremely few have ever challenged the Thai boxers and lived to tell the tell. Muay Thai uses all eight points on the body. Most striking arts use just two or three and a half at most. The success of Muay Thai in all martial arts brands and international world warrior tournaments speaks for itself.There is no bullshit in Muay Thai fights. Fighters train day and night slamming their knees and shins into banana trees over one million times until they are living weapons with bones that have become like folded iron due o the Wolf Effect. Their elbows easily slice through car hulls like blowtorches.In a real battle of Nak Muay, at least one fighter dies. Sometimes both die. Sometimes the audience dies. Known side effects of spectating Muay Thai besides death include cardiac arrest, impaired vision, and erectile dysfunction.Before every match the respect dance loosens hips and shoulders to throw vaporizing strikes but bullshido McDojo arts like Pankration do not do a respect dance so they can't really kill lions.I believe that somebody who argues on the internet about Muay Thai for 6 months will destroy somebody who argues on the internet about karate for 6 years.
>>128336Same, I got humbled when I started grappling after years of muay thai.>>128338If you manage to keep distance and don't get caught in the first 3-4 kicks then yeah, but you will get caught. Grapplers train single leg takedowns all the time, kicking them makes their job easier.I'm talking hobbyist vs hobbyist scenarios here, no point in comparing average joes to professional mma fighters who are simply on a league of their own.
>>128084If I had to pick one, I'd pick BJJ.If I could pick two, I'd pick BJJ and boxing.If I could pick three, I'd pick BJJ, boxing, and Judo.If I could pick four, I'd pick BJJ, boxing, Judo, and Muay Thai.I don't think you need anything else if you study all four.
>>128521>I'd pick the lesser judo over judo
>>128524One day, I hope Judo brings back leg attacks in competition and allows more time and attack variation in newaza. It doesn't have to be exactly like BJJ, but watching judo footage from the 1930s to 1980s makes me wish it was a perfect blend of stand-up and matwork again.
>>128524The unfortunate reality is that many judoka have to take BJJ or something adjacent to repair what's been amputated from their art. A lot of judo clubs don't even bother with banned techniques or kata for grading anymore. It's all Olympics all the time.
>>128679>A lot of judo clubs don't even bother with banned techniques or kata for grading anymoreYou literally can’t be promoted to/as a black belt without doing kata at least under US organizations so I don’t know why you think no one does kata.Yes though most of the time is spent training for the sport we compete in.
>>128679The same is true of BJJ. The lack of takedowns and pulling guard means my BJJ/MMA school has to run a Judo class and a wrestling class if just once a week for each & insist people take one of these. Even then people skip it and the BJJ coach has to get people drilling Judo sweeps in BJJ class so they can do at least one takedown..Really there needs to be a unified Gi comp using something like the ADCC rules to repair all the Gi jujutsu based arts and reunify them.
>>128682They may as well not do it because nobody gives a shit. It's memorize and dump and then back to helping the IJF destroy judo.
>>128697I’m not a fan of the IJF’s constant rule changes either but “destroying judo” is a bit dramatic. The leg grab rule isn’t that old and there’s a good chance it will be changed back in the future. Hell, plenty of us have been training long enough to have competed when it didn’t exist.
>>128084Thats basically what MMA is nowadays.
>>128683The IJF has been toying around with the idea of a Newaza only tournament. They've been cultivating strong ties with FIAS, the international governing body for sambo since they're sister arts. I think this maybe the closest thing you're looking for. Anyone from Judo, BJJ, or Sambo can compete so long as they wear a gi and obey the rules. It's basically the inverse of IBJJF rules with IJF and FIAS techniques:Takedowns & sweeps are 4 pointsGuard pass is 3 pointsMount, Back Mount,Back control is 2 pointsPins have to be held for 30 seconds. You can have them in side control while the opponent is on their back (not necessarily with the shoulders touching the mat) and no part of the holder must be under the control of the person being held (i.e. no entangled legs). When the pin starts, the referee announces "osaekomi" and the clock is started to time the duration of the hold.No neck cranks at all. Got to think of safety. Same goes for spine-locks (especially Twister) or wrist/finger locks. No kani-basami at all.. All armlocks and chokes allowed (Omoplata, Gogoplata, etc.). Only straight leglocks no twisted ones. There is total victory for tossing someone to the ground on their back. Once on the mat, you do groundfighting. One of you has to be submitted or pinned within the time limits. There must be continuous defense or offense, no stalling. Points are scored based on the criteria I've noted above for a decision win. You are permitted to grab the legs so Fireman's Carry is all good.
>>128170no one ever wants to talk about sombo. the joint locks they train in sombo r freakin ridiculous.
>>128919Because unless you live in a region with a lot of Russians, it's hard to find outside of Eastern Europe.Sombo is basically old school Judo mixed with Catch and other folk wrestling styles from the former Soviet Union. They kept all of Judo's leglocks and added in Catch's too. Don't like how Sport Sombo doesn't allow chokes, but Judo and Sombo were cross-trained a lot by Russians.
>>128919Apart from Dagestanis who wrestle as soon as they can walk, Sambo dudes seem to get rocked by BJJ dudes.
>>128524>picks the most relivent art for the intentwouldnt that make judo the lesser BJJ?
There was a Judo vs BJJ match and Judo won.
>>129045There have been 40 years of mixed-style competition. There is an entire sport with a prestigious competition based around multiple grappling styles competing against each other. You will have to be more specific about which one match out of 2 entire sports over 40 years that have regularly had Judokas vs BJJ guys?
>>129098Not him, but everyone knows about kimura vs helio, even if the Gracie’s like to pretend getting your arm snapped is actually victory lol.There’s also this match https://youtu.be/9pwMnKNNuDMYoshida puts Royce to sleep but then after the ref calls the match Royce tries to sucker punch yoshida and then later cries to have his loss changed to a no contest because “I wasn’t really asleep.”Then after talking an enormous amount for of shit Royce challenges yoshida to a rematch but with a shit ton of extra rules including stand ups after going to the ground for too long, a preselected ref by the Gracie’s, and no judges decision meaning if time runs out it’s a draw. Yoshida accepts these retarded rules and fights anyways and shocker it ends in a draw after a bunch of stalling.So yeah, judo has won against bjj if you count winning fights as winning. Bjj won if you count getting your shit snapped and crying to the authorities as winning.
>>129102To be fair, Yoshida should've just held Royce in that choke until he had completely passed out. You never let any of these Gracies a chance of mercy because they'll be quick to twist things around. I respect the Royce Gracie who had the guts to showcase BJJ in the early UFCs, not this whining punk or the lying sack of shit who took steroids in his rematch with Sakuraba. There's probably a 50/50 record between BJJ and Judo in all sorts of challenge matches, dojo stormings, Vale Tudo, as well as sanctioned MMA and submission grappling matches. I don't practice BJJ (wrestling and judo here), but I always had respect and admiration for how it trains and that it popularized grappling as a legitimate fighting art to the masses. And I'm far from anti-Gracie when I have nothing but the upmost respect for legends like the late Rolls Gracie Sr. and his half-brother Carlson Gracie Sr. who developed BJJ immeasurably.
>>129102>>129109Absolutely Judo has won a handful of times. But in the actual sport that is designed to test grappling styles vs each other BJJ dominates totally.Though in practice I think you need to cross-train Judo and BJJ. Since Judo is lacking in ground game and BJJ is lacking in takedowns and standing submissions.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADCC_Submission_Fighting_World_Championship#List_of_ADCC_Champions_in_Men's_Submission_Fighting_by_Year_and_Weight
>>129111Because people who are good at judo and wrestling go to the Olympics you retard. Your dealing with a skewed talent pool. >>129109Irl I don’t disrespect bjj guys in general but this is 4chan which means everything has to be a complete shot show promoting the most insane, extreme and/or retarded takes possible. That said even irl too many people drink Gracie koolaid
>>129113The problem with these Gracies is that they blatantly lie and spin their propaganda as well as their meat-headed rage at challenging anyone who disagreed with them to fight. Their nuthuggers are just as bad. When you read the history of the original 5 Brothers, you realize Carlos Sr. and Helio were real assholes. I have a lot of respect for George Gracie; he was the real fighter of the family and cross-trained in Catch.
>>129113> Because people who are good at judo and wrestling go to the Olympics you retard. Your dealing with a skewed talent pool. dont have to make excuses you retard. its a function of the very nature of a sport. the style that spends more time on the ground will manifestly preform better there. judo, bjj, hell, wrestling will preform better in the engagement where they particularly specialize their actions.Its simply a function of specialization. given nothing else, the person who splits their time between throws and groundwork will be less competent at groundwork then the ground specialist. and since grappling by submission largely ends by groundwork, it just stands to reason. I dont doubt that a bout where “first on your back looses” would be dominated by wrestling and judo. They are focused more in the transition of standing to ground.
>>129121So is ADCC a competition thats tests other grappling styles against each other and see what’s best or is it designed advantageously towards bjj? Pick one you dumbass it can’t be both.
>>129122im not the other guy, im just pointing out the nature of martial arts in general. didnt read his wiki article.
>>129111>But in the actual sport that is designed to test grappling styles vs each otherIs that what we’re pretending ADCC is now?
>>129113>>129183Yeah good point, the fact throws and pins aren't rewarded equally to submissions skews ADCC to be favourable to BJJ.But I would argue it's a pointless argument. It's good to have arts that specialise. You simply cross-train a takedown art with a ground game art. IJF Judo + Kosen Judo. IJF Judo + BJJ. Freestyle Wrestling + BJJ. IJF Judo + Catch Wrestling. Sambo + BJJ. etcAdd a full-contact striking art like boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai, or Kyokushin Karate and you're golden.
>>128084just do mma, you have to be retarded to think a pursit would beat an mma guy
>>128350Unironically this>Lived in Asian country for 2 years where people go to school at sports academies in their childhood to do judo as a main part of their education.>Pick up BJJ/MMA while I'm there with rugby background and very basic knowledge of how to shoot a double leg. >From day 1 judo throws not a problem unless wearing a gi, and even in gi not an unsolvable problem most of the time.>Shitty double leg and single leg takedowns working on elite judo guys.>After a few weeks judo guys learn to stop standing up straight and start using some degree of wrestling in combination with judo, and become much more effective grapplers.I don't know why people love judo on its own so much on this board. I think learning how to throw an uchi mata is great, getting timing down for foot sweeps is great, if you want to do gi stuff, cross collar chokes are great. But its just so limited in its scope and leaves so many things unaddressed. There's just such a small window of tools being trained compared to somebody who takes nogi BJJ seriously, where you're gonna train the most basic and effective wrestling, judo throws, foot sweeps, and then more extensively ground work. And as for the judo vs. wrestling piece, its got the same issue as muay thai vs. wrestling. Judo and muay thai guys are tough as shit, but if you're main posture involved standing straight up, wrestling take downs are gonna be really hard to stop, even with a good sprawl. MMA striking is its own art that should be trained as such. Same can be said for MMA grappling.
>>128086>>128106>>128111Judo is really good for transitions in MMA
>>129318Judo has always been giving respect since its inception as it faced Jujutsu, Sumo, Catch Wrestling and other styles. Many if not most self defense styles and CQC military arts take influence from Judo.I don't think Judo is nuthugged because it does have its drawbacks like not having enough time and development to do matwork and submissions. Being reliant on clothing for its grips and takedowns. Or updating itself to deal with modern striking. Or the fact that it's atemi-waza is never practiced outside of kata sessions.No other art is going to be 100% perfect. But Judo is damn near at 70% because as you mentioned, it toughens people from ukemi and it has throws and groundwork to give it an advantage in a brawl. If someone fused Judo, Sambo and BJJ in a no-gi format, it would be the ultimate grappling style.
>>128084I found a gym with separate classes for boxing, muay thai and bjj at an unbeatable price.I'm a medical doctor at a 3rd world country so my schedule is shit.I think I'll be able to squish 3 random training days per week.Should I always train those three to maximize my spending or should I focus on bjj and rotate between muay thai and box?I don't want to overtrain and shit all over my aging body.
>>129462If I were in your position, I would do BJJ twice a week, pick either boxing or muay thai depending on which one you like more for your 3rd day, and then shadow box 5-10 minutes every day on your own time. But if you end up hating BJJ, then just do whatever you enjoy most. As somebody who also has a busy work schedule, you'll probably just end up showing up to whatever classes you can make it to, which is also perfectly fine.
>>129464>As somebody who also has a busy work schedule, you'll probably just end up showing up to whatever classes you can make it to, which is also perfectly fine.Thanks, it'll probably end this way.

>>129464> As somebody who also has a busy work schedule, you'll probably just end up showing up to whatever classes you can make it to, which is also perfectly fineDespite what LARPers who pretend to be doing pro fighter regimens all year round on /xs/ say, this is how most adults actually do martial arts.

I get that most people, even those who aren't larping and really have taken some kind of weapons training, will likely never actually use it, but it's a martial art. Using a gun, using a knife, these are martial arts. Even the most seasoned professional fighter is in the danger zone up against a totally untrained thug with a gun or machete, how much more so when the one wielding the weapon has had any formal instruction at all.
>>128336You know how to turn jujitsu black belt into brown? Punch him in his face. And what to do to turn brown belt into a purple belt? Punch him agan!

>>131549This is where traditional martial arts still have a little practical use. You have self-defense & paramilitary courses, which most of the time seemed to utilize silicone/plastic knives or foam bats, fake guns too. Those programs invariably had tons of heavily choreographed drills for shit like wildly impractical disarms or scenarios to work through. Stuff like you would see in poorly taught Krav-Maga classes. Stuff that you know does not fucking working. So many of those janky blade & gun disarms have been exposed for the bullshido they are, just more fantasy bullshit popularized by Hollywood.

>>129318A good nuanced take. each endeavor has particular focuses that they excel in that is reinforced by their rulesets and methodologies. Ive noticed the very same thing when crosstraining (did bjj, wresting, boxing, and a bit of judo). Often times in casual grappling, id be able to pretty easily get a one up on judokas pretty regularly, until, like you said, they started adopting the more freestyle stance as well and getting a better feel for the particular explosiveness and engagements of most wrestling schools of thought with "shoots" from out of distance (not that judo isn't explosive, but its often in a different sort of way). Id be remised to not mention judos excellence in training more standing footwork and sweeps and technicalities>>129445>If someone fused Judo, Sambo and BJJ in a no-gi format, it would be the ultimate grappling style.Isnt that kinda defeating the purpose of going judo to begin with? since what makes it particularly judo as opposed to any other grappling art is the gi. If you are going by a non gi format, it makes sense to practice a non gi art that focuses more on clothless fighting at its core.
Which martial art will help me get in shape? I already lift but not enough to be considered anything extraordinary. I also wonder if martial arts are a substitute for lifting or if they have to coexist.
>>129308>Yeah good point, the fact throws and pins aren't rewarded equally to submissions skews ADCC to be favourable to BJJ.Because submissions actually ends fights, pins and throws don't.Making a ippon or pin a winning condition would be as retarded as making a sweep or guardpass a winning condition.
>>131769>Because submissions actually ends fights, pins and throws don't.>Making a ippon or pin a winning condition would be as retarded as making a sweep or guardpass a winning condition.Yeah, and a mount and back mount do not finish fights either by themselves, and are worth points in BJJ. Everything is easier to understand when you remember that in a "real fight" being mounted on means you are getting punched in the face. Same thing for a pin or a throw. A pin (of course, not every pins) means I could have been kneeing your in the head. A throw means you would be taking actual damage outside of a soft flooring. Ippon exists because somewhere along the line people decided that falling backwards was a bad thing because centuries ago it would means death to someone on armor that, by that point, would be an easy picking. It translated to modern terms. Of course, many "ippons" end up putting someone in a bad position even if you consider a fight in cement flooring, but it was just how the ruleset works.
>>131746Boxing or Muay Thai because conditioning is a must. You will burn so many calories.

>>131769I'm all into submission grappling but hip tossing a dude on pavement or concrete is going to end REALLY bad. >>132298>>132311I never understood this autism about MUH STAND-UP or NO! IT'S ALL ABOUT SUBMISSIONS when anyone with half a brain should know that grappling requires both throws/takedowns with groundwork. You can obviously have your bias in favor of being a guy that prefers to slam a dude hard on the ground or jockeying for a joint-lock/choke, but being 1 dimensional is retarded.
LOL AT YOU MUAY THAI FAGSLiterally all you need to beat 99 percent of the planet is strength and wrestling. Oh you try to kick me? Slam you on your head. Oh you gonna judo toss me? We will both be on the ground then your fucked. I am a boxing fan and practitioner first and foremost and if you have ever done any grappling you know that a good wrestler is next to impossible. Anyway op yeah just go do mma
>>132393I want to beat the 1% too.
>>132394Then you better get really good at everything and do steroids and grow to be 6 foot 8
>>132312I get what you're saying but go fuck yourself for being so aggro. I was simply pointing out that submissions go better in sports because of the environment that supports them.
>>129504>If you do MMA, you won't be able to use half of what you learn in most real fights.This is applied to all martial arts, except MMA. Every martial art has plenty of bullshit incorporated on it that works well under its training and sparring ruleset but is a risk to do it live.
>>128086Sambo>Judo>Wrestling>BJJ> everything else
>>129318>I don't know why people love judo on its own so much on this board.Although I only go here and >reddit, it seems like Judo communities have some weird complex I usually see in like Karate or even TKD. I'll see boxing guys make self-deprecating jokes about nobody touching their legs or BJJ guys make fun of themselves pulling guard as obvious shortcomings, but every time you see someone Karate or Judo post it's all "no we're the best sport and have no shortcomings", which is hilarious considering their ground defence amounts to "roll over and lie prone on my stomach until the referee stands me up".I do currently teach BJJ and train Judo, Muay Thai and MMA, and have competed in boxing, kickboxing, kyokushin karate and freestyle wrestling in the past, and every art I've done has useful things as well as plenty of useless habits as well. I know BJJ's downsides, which is why I incorporate at least one class of takedowns a fortnight in BJJ and use a very top position and hold top position style to try and remedy that, though I do know how to invert and play open guards and will teach them despite me not thinking they're as applicable to self-defence (which I do mention when I teach them). But you'll hardly ever hear a Judo guy joke that their bottom-game style is "plank on my stomach until the referee breaks up the fight", despite that being what I come up against every time I compete.
>>132492To be fair, it's the rule set that has most judo players turtle. And most serious judo practicioners do it for the World Championships and Olympics.It's only the old school dojos that try to devote a couple hours each week on newaza where you'll get sweeps and set-ups from the bottom. Most US judo dojos are geared to IJF rules. In Japan, Brazil, the Netherlands, France, Russia is where you're gonna see dojos where you have serious newaza.
>>128202>gun beats martial artsyeah no shit, not really the discussion at hand though eh? i think anyone with 2 brain cells knows that a gun beats punching kicking and grappling
>>133159Does it? You have to draw it first.
>>133161you know what good point, i wonder why the military and police in every nation even bother with those things, totally ineffective compared to a well trained mind and body
>>128084Boxing and wrestling will give you a great foundation in little time
Nobody in this thread said anything about legality. If you have to fight to defend yourself, it's so much better when you have no striking marks to incriminate you.If you throw a mawf on the concrete, unless a camera caught the action, nobody can prove you did shit. The guy fell and ground roughed him up.

That's like someone who doesn't know how to fight getting beaten up by a boxer and thinking boxing is a god tier fighting style.>>136753Yeah, because the average fighting situation is two dudes who don't know a thing about fighting standing in the street and throwing punches at each other. As soon as one guy knows how to throw a single leg and GNP or a head kick it's over for boxers
>>133176>gets leg kicked to death>gets subbed to deathNice foundation, retard.
>>129318>idk why people love judo on its own so mucha couple of reasons i can think of, heres a list of reason why i like it, as someone who loves grappling in general.1) judo throws looks great, even the messy ones at the olympics, while watching high level wrestling and bjj can be a bit dull.2)it was one of the first major martial arts to philosophically focus on sparring in a safe but realistic manner3) it had both groundwork and standing techniques, which is why it spawned bjj and sambo (sambo is so similar to judo that the only major difference is leg grabs, and alot of top samboist are also judokas), so everything that is in bjj and sambo technically could have been developed in judo and many are in fact developed in the past with judo.4) despite its current shitty state for self defense, its hard to write it off because most of its flaws are from shitty arbitrary rules from the IJF and olympics for the sake of "good judo" that looks traditional and "graceful". There is a sense that judo has massive potential if only it figured out reward groundwork competence while still focusing on takedowns and allowing leg grabs.
>>128525Judo pre-90s was fucking metal
>>129039>subhuman who can't spell relevant wants to talk
>>128906>since they're sister artsThey aren't, sambo is let me copy your homework but make it look different judo. The founders were 99% obsessed with Japan, one was one of the first black belt foreingers, opened up one of the first judo schools in Russia and died in prison because Russia thought he was a japanese spy. The other was a jujutsu weaboo but was most likely the reason that the kneebar survived after the leglock ban in Japan, and the person who officially invented sambo was a judo student of the first guy.
>>131066I strongly suspect you're baiting, but, it's difficult to use a pipe bomb to defend yourself in a barfight, for home defense if you suspect an intruder (but haven't confirmed), or against being mugged in a narrow space.>>131308This guy gets it. Bombs kind of suck in any situation where you risk also getting caught in the blast radius.
>>137987Newfaggot, go back
>>128084>...or maybe should I not complicate this and just go to an mma trainingThis has my vote. Modern MMA as a style is typically a mix of boxing, wrestling, muay thai, and jiujitsu. Very well rounded and proven effective.
>>128309i have a theory about flashy/mcdojo martial arts. they work. but they assume you have a solid base in fighting already. this is the stuff you learn when you already know jujutsu and boxing stuff. advanced special techniques that may give you an edge in a more violent society in which warriors are revered. think about in history where you could be paid to be a body guard or mercenary there would've been a lot more people who could fight and get paid for being skilled in martial arts. any edge would've been worth it to seek out masters. unfortunately over time the focus went to the flashy stuff over the solid base that everyone would've had when lives depended on it.
>>132261>Yeah, and a mount and back mount do not finish fights either by themselves, and are worth points in BJJ.Those positions do not end fights, as you can get out of those bad positions with a bit of skill, but the positions put you at a disadvantage and make it more likely that you will be submitted, thats why points are given, to acknowledge that one guy has managed to outmanoeuvre his opponent and should be rewarded. Sweeps and pins, even being mounted, doesnt end a fight, even in MMA, there are countless examples of people in UFC and other promotions where some guy gets out of mount. Its tough, but its possible, and so just getting mount shouldn't end the fight. Even throws on concrete don't necessarily end the fight, as seen in things like KOTS. They will probably hurt like a bitch but you can recover from them. So sorry judo bitch, in no world does it make sense to count a pin or a throw the same as a submission, where the opponent actively says "ok I surrender you win".
>>128084Go to MMA training, on top of whatever appeals to you.You'll get people of different backgrounds coming in, with different approaches.>EG. I use a mix of wing chun, fencing and karate to parry strikes and then counter with straights I can turn into backfists to get through guards.
>>132393Kek no.I had a guy try to shoot on me straight for thirty unbroken seconds. Fast guy, going hard too.Literally all I needed to do was match his speed going backwards, and just throw a couple strikes to fuck with him. I didn't even end up hitting him very hard.Get better footwork, and learn how to push a jab enough to move their head off-line.
>>139321The key is to not shoot immediately. Start standing up and if the guy is a good boxer you can shoot after a couple of exchanges.
>>139345Lol if the guy is a good boxer the last thing you would want to do is "exchange"
Best martial art for a tranny? I was kind of a chad before I started shooting up estrogen so I think I can still spar with average dudes. I competed in a striking art as a teenager, so I dunno if I want to get better at striking or switch to grappling. I don't really care about self defense purposes or autistically optimizing my "combat effectiveness".
>>128084For what?For unarmed self defense you just need good hard hand strikes and some standup. Barely anyone kicks irl and going to the ground usually means it's already over because someone got knocked out or slammed on the sidewalk.
>>128194Nope.You really don't need much for the average fight. Most of what he named is a waste of time, you will likely never use kicks or groundfighting in a real altercation.Here's how it goes:>One punches first>Usually it's over now>If not, there's clinching>Someone gets thrown on the asphalt or knocked out>The end
>>128124The problem with aikido is someone learns the movements but doesnt ever learn or realise what those movements are for
