    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I Know We Have a "MA inthe News" Section...

    ...but lacking a "Martial Arts in Bullshit Propaganda" forum, I figured this should go here.

    I read through that article. I think good face punching and GNP is missing from our kids martial arts education. We are raising a bunch of pussies who tattle on one another, and get bullied because the schools and society think that confrontation is wrong and everyone should get a trophy. It is completely opposite of what 'Merica actually is, where we are the biggest bullies on the block.

    That's just my opinion.

    These things teach us a great deal about life in general. The first time I got punched in the face, I was in shock, I froze and then I cried and then I was o.k. The next few times, it wasn't such a surprise; I knew I wasn't going to die and was able to react. This politically correct bullshit is ABSOLUTELY adulterating the so-called martial arts being taught today.

    They seem to want everyone to be passive and accepting. Who do we blame; the government, schools, society as a whole or parents? If we fight and you win; you get the trophy. It SHOULD be incentive for me to train harder. If we fight and we both get trophys, what will motivate me to be a better fighter?

    The kids of MMA are taking their cues from the 'Ultimate Fighting Championship' or 'UFC' where moves like the 'Ground Pound' and the 'Cobra Strangle' have millions tuning in every week.


    Cobra Strangle? Seriously?

    Did it mention it even once in the article that face punches aren't allowed in Pankration? Cause they mentioned a few times that there's NO HEADGEAR and added a pic of a kid crying from a punch as if it was legal.

    Sooooo if head punches are illegal in Pankration, how the **** can one unleash such devestating "moves" as the ground and pound? I suppose one could wail on their opponent's chest, but why?

    I can't say I'd want to get punched in the liver/spleen/solar plexus while laying on the ground.

    I'm not saying punches don't hurt on the ground, it's just a lot easier to defend against these shots if one doesn't have to worry about headshots. It might not be a Pankration fighter's go-to strategy. I don't know.
