    That is why they say never discuss politics with friends.

    lol Nice to know someone does.

    Your sparring experiance sounds well rounded. I wish we had some xingyi guys to spar.

    yeah, I mean, long ago I knew a lad who had such a crappy life that it filled him with an ample amount of rage. he got into fights practically everyday. I fought him. The thing is, you couldn't really ever beat the kid cause he always got up. He would spas out again and again until he beat the living crap out of you, you conceded out of sheer exhaustion, or just got bored. There was no bell... he would just keep coming and coming. Actually he was quite a hand full and later got killed when breaking into a house.. But, i think the point I'm trying to make kind of parallels something i once read by bruce lee, that is, if a person wants badly enough to rip off your nose, he's going to do just that.
    I think if someone knows how to take someone down and control them, then they well keep the pain on until they give up. But I think the best thing to do is #1 not get into a fight to begin with or #2 leave the situation. If someone gets attacked by four people with knives can they win? Maybe, but it be difficult. They would have to be really good.

    I saw a news story about these kids doing this no holds barred fighting. There were these two girls fighting. They were swinging there arms around wildly. I think this was an untrained person. That is without any training that is what most people are likely to do. I think by watching video clips of real life you can see what is real life.

    Personally, I have long arms and wearing pants doesn't favor kicks.

    I love the way you guys write...But what do you think of Kung Fu vs Muay Thai,San Shou vs Muay Thai,taekwando...all that in the ring,like real men with rules and no treachery,no guns and one to one...
    Which style do you like the most(even if we all have different views)or if you had to go to the ring tomorrow,which style would you choose to be a master of?

    if i had to go to the ring tomorrow, i would choose to master the style of bullshitting-an-excuse-to-get-me-the-hell-out-of-that-ring.

    but in all seriousness, the definitive and unequivocal answer is: chewbacca style.

    Star wars fan ha???? Who'd 've guessed ...........


    anyway.......... I thinkthe point here is that whatever actual art you practice, gongfu is a whole other extraeneous ( though somewhat related for a lovely monday morning chan paradox) concept . Gongfu is gongfu ...........the art you get your apps from to pull it off is negotiable. Fighting proficiency ( like defence proficiency) is somewhere is the midst of understanding both. .............
    Cheers and go meditate on it ..........

    if u wanna talk sport, imo alot of the K-1 fighters would whop most of the san shou guys in a heartbeat..i heard something about cung le in K-1 but i cant confirm or care enough to confirm that, i hate cung le..but anyway the K-1 fighters are tough, san shou is more i throw u, u throw me, a couple punches and kicks point type stuff..i rarely see k os, and even when i do they are whack

    NHB is the best imo, you wont find better fighters all around

    the point is comp fighting doesnt really prove or disprove anything other then what masters in the past have been emphasiseing for centurys.

    Firstly , for "everyone else " having more knowledge and experience, I think that the following will just speak for itself.

    ......and yes, that post was written midst 3-day drinking binge between training and business, but you'll just have to spank me and send to me hell http://www.martialartsplanet.com/for...s/rolleyes.gif .

    Regardless though, I did actually consider your request the other night to provide you with names and personal contacts to harangue, and I've conservatively decided that to protect both my own individual privacy and to prevent that particular sensei being unduly harrassed - I will not be provding you with those details.

    However, the information should be available from your own local bujinkan senseis ( if you're not one yourself been priviliged to previously study and train at the soke's Japanese school branch ) .

    On the bujinkan / internal ma connection though, I think that when you understand 2 particular important subtlities of bujinkan and ninjutsu in general ( that so many just don't and never do ) in that A. the pressure point striking currilculum app techs relate to and are directly dependant on meridian existance, acknowledgement and utilisation ( though termed and phrased in Japanese and bujinkan specific language ) , and that B. the "zen" tone and qi ( ki ) cultivation methods utilised by bujinkan including their awareness development drills and exercise sets and form sets etc, are directly comparative and translatable to buddhism's "satori " cultivation techniques ( personally poiniant to my own grasshopper understanings btw http://www.martialartsplanet.com/for...ilies/wink.gif http://www.martialartsplanet.com/for...lies/smile.gif ) and again found in Japanese / bujinkan terminology , then it becomes extremely and blatantly clear A. on what parameters these MAs meet and that B. the internal aspects of of bujinkan is as important to proficiency as it is to understand and acknowledge under any other system.
    Additionally and imo, the discovery of these exact relationships and these types of conceptual consistencies is exactly what the whole cross branch study / training trip is all about . At the end of the day, it comes down to those that get it and those that don't- and respectively interperate and play and train their arts and life - choice modal operandi accordingly.

    Cheers, be well and feel free to conduct your own research before nxt pretending you know about what you're speaking or are being in anyway mature or objective. http://www.martialartsplanet.com/for...ilies/wink.gif http://www.martialartsplanet.com/for...ilies/cool.gif
