    I was taught in TKD that it was indeed the right thing to do. Though common sense contradicted it. Didn't know what to think of it to be honest. Guess I accepted that it is A technique for parrying a knife and that it is indeed possible to pull off, however there's better, easier ways to do it.

    Looks very showy though and kind of impressive. That said, we got taught a few joint locks that seemed more practical and simpler to pull off. A block for and over hand strike with a knife that involved getting into the attackers guard and underhooking the attacking arm, turning your body in and getting the hand in a sort of Kimura like hold while kicking the leg out to pin the attacker on the floor while still keeping hold of the knife hand. My Judo/ JJ skills and knowledge are limited at best but it didn't seem too bad a technique if you could pull it off and keep calm enough to pull it off against a knife wielding psychopath.

    Though again, my favourite technique is called "Run for the hills and the keep on fucking running"

    at the first place I trained karate we were taught to do all the techniques exactly as in the kata. We didn't even do the kata all that well actually.
    Someone punching you in the chest? first, extend one arm while holding the other one way out to the side, leaving yourself completely open, then bring the outside arm in to block the punch. Don't forget to pull the extended hand to the hip, leaving yourself completely open to a followup punch.
    The punches too, always chamber your punches! and lunge punch, yeah lunge punch!
    Nukite to the solar plexus, **** yea-ow, oh god, my fingers.

    Here's my favourite: someone coming to punch you? crescent kick their arm!

    Also, knife-hand blocks with the arm mostly extended.

    Probably plenty of others, but I can't remember them right now.

    I don't know for crescent kicks, but a lot of these things seem like incorrect versions of stuff that actually works. The kind of thing you get from unqualified instructors who probably learned it the right way at one point but didn't train consistently and have started doing it wrong without noticing.

    I was taught that I could easily dislocate someone's shoulder by pushing on their arm in the standing position.

    any tech that is learned in Eagle Claw Kung Fu

    I learned many bogus tech in Eagle Claw. that was the worst style I have ever taken. most defenses were to grab the incoming arm, and sometimes grab the incoming punch with both hands with the Eagle Claw. The teach Tornado spinning kicks, a spinning inside crescent kick, which never works! There is many cartwheels and splits! there are many flowery hand tech as well. It all around sux!

    One of the most stupid things I was taught was in krav maga and it was an escape from mount by doing the "bridge"

    Itīs not a shitty technique as such but why not teach some BJJ kind of sweep which relies more on motion and leverage and less in strength (because itīs the Street after all where the attacker is assumed to be biiger and stronger than you)

    Basic mount escape is a sweep, or at least a reversal...

    I mean, it has a bridge in it...

    A good upa doesn't require much bridging, probably the Krav people were teaching it wrong.
