MMA Vs Isshin Ryu sparring (Video)
Today I had the opportunity to spar with someone whom I had argued with online.
Before I post the video I want to preface it by saying that I was feeling pretty shitty today, had just sparred at my ARMA sessionfor 30~ minutes against 4 differant people without a break and earlier in the training I had my index finger jacked up by an errant waster. So I am not sparring as well as I normally do imo
I'm 22, 5'10", 165~ lbs approx 9 months of BJJ/MT/MMA experiance.
He's 29, 6'1" 180lbs~ A little over a year of Isshin Ryu karate experiance.
I gotta give props to the guy for stepping up, it was really cool to find someone willing to actually put their money where their mouth is and actually throw down, unlike many of the people I've argued with online.
Plus it was a good experiance sparring with someone that I dont train with. I had a comparatively rough time taking him down then what I thought I would, it was diffacult closing distance on the side kicks he tended to throw.
it was a learning experiance.

Looks like the guy didn't have a clue how to deal with someone in a grappling way
Once you broke out the monkey technique at :27, it was all over.

I dont think he sucks, but he's not used to that range, or people monkeying his back for that matter.
Don't worry to much about it.The monkey moved worked didn't it?
I think I can speak for everyone here that we would like to see more vids.
I sparred him too. I'm 5' 7" 140lbs and I have 7 months of muay thai and boxing experience. I think we were all pretty tired today (the day this was shot), it was hot as hell and we had all been sparring a while before filming (more excuses, I know =P). So yeah here's a video of the two of us sparring:
And yeah, guys c'mon, he was actually willing to spar with us and let us film it so you gotta give him credit. Most people are too lame to do even that ;)
Haha, that was great. I think you could've walked within range of his kicks more. They didn't look like anything you couldn't take, especially to get a good round kick on him.
The choke was the best part though; he just sat there and took it. The best part was when he chunked his glove after the fight, though. What a little panty.
