    Awesome. Most know lots of stuff, except much of it DOESNT work. I love to hear about stuff that works, what worked?

    Footwork angles, distancing, roofblocks, I worked a lot of different cutting angles, some baiting paid off well, and feinting.

    Holy ****, the number of times I've heard "You can only make Karate work because of your size" at work.

    1) I'm not that big by the standards of the business I'm in.

    2) The bodyweight and other conditioning I do has been an integral part of my Karate training ever since I first took it up, as much as the full-contact sparring and crosstraining.

    EDIT: Seriously, why do so many small guys have be such whiners?

    Yimchaloi, take notice here. This poor chunner was a decent specimen. Young, reasonably athletic, & with plenty of height & reach. And there was no grappling to take his style out of it's intended element. His style set him up for this.

    There's one main reason aikidoka don't compete in MMA very often, and it's a simple one...

    We are above it.


    Don't know about the chunners though.
    I expect it's related to angles. Octagons have so very many of them.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!

    It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

    Awesome.

    His intro music is John Cafferty's "Hearts on Fire" from Rocky IV.

    Joe "I've Got the Power" Sayah..not so much.

When they have a "roda" (fighting circle), they choose if it's a "jogo" (game, just to practice) or "à vera" (full contact with a lot of injuries). My brother-in-law is a "contramestre", with almost 20 years of Capoeira. And when he fights à vera, he is a freaking monster.
