Are you saying that your first post is littered with mostly meaningless immature childish dribble? If so, good on you, you're on your way. If not, then I shake my head and wag my finger at you, my middle finger, while calling you a mega douche.

As stated in previous posts I have trained in traditional karate and modern systems. I am not coming on line without detailed experience in just one or the other, but both.
Says you. In my opinion a good guard and footwork is much better than a strong hard punch. Some people will NEVER develop a strong hard punch, because they are small, weak or you.
Of course karate also trains headbutts, elbows, knees, inner leg kicks, groin kicks, finger stabs to the eye, kick 'em when they're down etc, etc. That was not , my point, my point was the necessity and effectiveness of a strong hard punch - its basic bread and butter.
Depends on the system, it's training methodology and various other factors. Just because you don't think it is warranted, doesn't mean people with more experience do.
Also, I don't think the bashing of traditional martial arts like karate is warranted.
Are you flip flopping?
Live and let live ... karate will get you fit, keep you healthy and raise your confidence. It will also give you some essential self defense skills. Of course a karateka in the octagon would get his backside handed to him by an MMA fighter ... and probably on the street as well.
Are you fucking serious? In what universe is a martial art not designed to kick someone's butt?
But kicking someone's butt is not the ultimate goal of karate, its a Way.
Dudes who want to get online and deconstruct text and poke holes in something as simple as someone stating
I've already addressed this
... hey, a good hard right should be the foundation of solid MA training...
Only one person wasting their time here, bro.
far out, stop wasting my time and grow the frak up.
We're not into one step posting here, bro, we don't throw a lunge punch in order for you to commit several punches and kicks to vital areas as we stand frozen just prior to you locking our arms up and putting us down. See how I made a connection between your karate one step sparring drills and internet posting, it works because you made a connection to internet sparring and us being keyboard warriors.
I am on this website to converse constructively ... not a fan of sparring keyboard warriors.
