What martial arts should I learn if I'm a weeb? Idk MMA stuff at all but I am a huge weeb and my hobbies are juggling and lifting weights and working hard and circus stuff.

Also I was watching soke anshus videos a transgender ninjitsu master and I love them she's inspired me to learn MMA
>>
Muay Thai for based striking plus some boxing, Jiu jitsu for groundwork or if you’re a homo
>>
Honestly, ninjutsu is not really respected, but many people have different reasons for training a martial art. Try a lot of different arts and see what works for you. If you like circus stuff, you might like catch wrestling. It's a wrestling style used for entertaining fights at circuses, festivals, etc
>>
>>33245
Those aren't from Japan though?
>>
>>33246
That could be fun. I can see why ninjitsu isn't really respected, the one I wanted to try was called...I forgot but phillipino stick fighting. Idk I'd want to try taekwan do or some kind of Japanese style kendo or something
>>
>>33244
Huh, this person seems to have a realistic outlook on ninjutsu, that's neat.

I like judo quite a bit, its very effective and practical. Lots of japanese autism as well for stoking your weeb side. Wrestling is strong as well and arguably easier to pick up quickly at least to a level where you would be able to drop an average person. You'd probably want to do some form of striking to supplement it, I'm not super knowledgeable in this area though.
>>
>>33255
I was kinda funposting. She kinda got me into mma but she's a complete fraudster and a meme for sure.

I honestly probably should do wrestling since I'm strong as fuck but I'm also 30 so idk
>>
>>33259
:P gotcha
wrestling is good, and I do wrestling practice and drills on the side, you probably won't go wrong there. But man judo is something else, a whole different beast. Very explosive and lots of really good, techniques. People all know about the throws, but there's also foot sweeps, joint-locks, and pins.
>>
>>33244
As a weeb do judo and kyokushin so you can satisfy your weeb proclivities while actually learning to fight
>>
>>33270
Kyokyshom seems cool. Wanted judo but u need a partner
>>

jiujitsu is the only martial art japan actually produced

Wait, are you trying to learn martial arts through youtube?
>>
>>33279
No I'd do it irl but I still want to practice the techniques at home also
>>
>>33282
Just use your sister as your sparring partner, bro.
>>
>>33283
I don't have a sister, what about my transbian gf?
>>
>>33244
weeb friendly martial arts that aren't shit:
MMA
BJJ
Wrestling

That is all.

You can do uchi-komi with a suspension trainer.
>>
>>33244
Judo or kyokushin karate depending on whether or not you want to strike or grapple. Those are the not bullshit ones.

I guess kendo is on the table too if you want to do sword stuff
>>
>>33274
>but u need a partner
Are you planning on trying to learn on your own? Are you retarded? Heres an asian proverb for you

>>33277
Fine, do shotokan and don't learn how to fight. Karate's Okinawan anyway.
>>
>>33244
the subtle aspects of daito ryu/ small circle jujitsu could be especially fun for a juggler

This part is clearly tongue in cheek hence those ones falling under not actually teaching you how to fight

>karate minimal kicking

Relative to taekwondo ya
>>
>>33395
What's that
>>
>>33837
Not him but Daito ryu is the original school of aikijujutsu. Small circle jujutsu, if I remember correctly is an offshoot of Danzan Ryu jujutsu, a school founded in Hawaii by a Japanese man who studied judo and a number of older styles.
>>
>>33448
TKD and shotokan are literally the exact same art, the koreans are just doing that thing they always do where they steal something and then pretend they invented it. Observe
https://youtu.be/etgxusKS0Do?t=173

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dI0hwg3dOQs
>>
>>33865
I am aware TKD origins the first name for it tang soo do is literally just how you say karate in korean, but the modern TKD is not the same. Same as karate is no longer the same as white crane kung fu.
>>
>>33866
I mean if we want to go that route then karate doesn't even exist, it's a fake word about a fake tradition to sell lessons to japanese kids

karate is such a catch all term for so many different unrelated things basically every martial art in the world is karate based on its strictest definition
>>
>>33868
This is fair to say but the point of the chart is that other than kyokushin an its kids all karate averages out to men in pajamas doing robot dances and playing tag. Goju might have very different dances to shotokan an shito ryu, but its the same shit at the end of the day. The actual practical difference between all soft karate and tkd is tkd kicks way more.
>>
>>33874
well not goju, we all know that's a complete fighting art and the ultimate form of self defense
but maybe the others are like that
>>
>>33875
True
>>
>>33244
Learn jiu jitsu
>>
>>33244
Kendo if you're interested in the culture and meeting Japanese people.
>>
>>34056
Could be fun
>>
>>34056
What about bujinkan/ninjutsu? There's a place near me that does it
>>
>>34796
You aren't learning how to fight, and it's going to be a lot of overweight weebs.

You're more likely to find actual Japanese people and learn to fight or fence if you do judo or kendo.
>>
>>34796
they believe in pressure point and no touch knock outs
>>
>>33244
>soke anshu
Why not just watch someone else?
>>
>>33409
>Do you have a lot of money
Why is this part important?
>>
>>35026
Because some martial arts are infested with wallet reapers, like bjj and wing tsun
>>
>>33244
They’re all ass besides karate and judo. However, karate is influenced more so by Chinese martial arts than Japanese though.

karate is from okinawa which was its own country when that happened. It became part of japan afterwards
I don't think it retroactively becomes a japanese martial art because of that
>>
>>33244
judo, karate and ju jitsu are all very weeby and practical lots of bowing calling the instructor sensei ect.
karate can be a fantastic stand up style that teaches selfcontrol,discipline,perseverance and confidence or can be a waste of time depending on the teacher. especially in america lots of McDojos
this applies to the other two but is more common in karate, i guess since its more well know and so makes better branding?

how many balls can you juggle btw i never got fast four, any tips?
>>

99% of those schools are bullshit.

Cool chart, but what is rarer to find in the US, Sambo or Sanda?
>>
>>36465
There are some guys in the jiu jitsu and mma world with a bit of Sambo history.

Sanda does not exist outside China.
>>
>>36465
Sanda, you might find it in California

Sambo can be found in Judo clubs with FSU coaches; "Davai, let's grab some legs and break some legs"

>>33244

do BJJ, will go well with the circus stuff and the lifitng will give you an upper hand in a lot of grappling situations

I was just looking up "samurai code" on YouTube and saw her videos

This trend is dying out I think and I'm very glad for it. BJJ gi designs still tend to be more garish than Judo ones but the Nascar esque patchwork gis have slowly stopped appearing at major events. Personally I limit it to one dojo patch, don't know if I'd enforce that as a rule though because in general I prefer the less regulated atmosphere of BJJ. Even though BJJ guys tend to have horrific taste.
>>
>>36636
ikr, this is the first time I've seen anyone else talk about it. I even mentioned it on asp a few times with no replies.
Fun fact: "Anshu" is a title with synonymous meaning to "Soke"

If your gi isn't pure white with no identifiable symbols on it, and your obi isn't so old it's got more white on it than black, and the black left on it isn't closer to grey it's so faded, and it's got even one stripe or identifiable symbol on it, you're a fucking poser. Osu.

not sure if autism or surrealism

To be fair three knuckle is better atructure for your hand, the problem is if you fully extend your arm you put pressure on the elbow in a way that doesnt happen with a two knuckle punch, thus increasing your potential reach.

Yes
