    It's sexy when a girl spreads her legs. Not so much when a guy doe sit. Guys should just flex their chest to block punches.

    Or you know, actually block punches because we're supposed to have huge studly arms.
    Rad ki was made up by adolescents. I do not know who created trad ki but it was not made by adolescents. your an ass dude, Im not being a little bitch you are, your past the level of a bitch. Your beyond Bitch! If im easting my time with ki and psi, then your wasting time to prove frauds, and all **** like that! -theoutsider

    Kick boxing is ok, but don't expect do beat a man like Rickson Gracie with that. You need a real martial art. You need Xing Yi Quan. -Emptyflower

    The splits, how ever, have a few martial uses. Doing the splits for me, can put my fists in testical strike range.

    dont ignore the Art for the Martial or else your just kick boxing

    Yes i am serious, there are kicks that can block punches. we have them in Moo duk kwan.
    I want to learn how to use them in case my arm gets broken in a fight.
    what would you have me do? if my arm gets broke, not block punches? -sempi-stone

    In other news... The whole "Blocking punch with crecent kick" technique was one of the main reasons I left karate. This is what happens when you try to evolve something without pressure testing.

    Okay. Blocking punches with your legs...that does it. If this is the true face of TMA, I am siding with Poop-Loops. If you're not training to be a better fighter, then you're not training to be a better martial artist. Just for the record, what exactly are cresent kicks good for?

    At this point, everyone is siding with Poop-Loops. Which isn't weird because mostly everyone here has common sense.

    And crescent kicks are great for setting up axe kicks and attacking from different angles.

    Here's some REAL advice for the splits. It's easier sinking downward with one leg infront and one in back. After you get that down, start trying to twist from side to side so that you go from facing your left leg, to middle, then facing your right leg. A lot of people who can do the splits normally have a hard time sitting down and getting their legs to go straight out.

    But I really wouldn't recommend this in a fight, or even showing off at an exhibition. Getting back to you feet from the splits is tricky, and you can hurt yourself pretty bad. If you HAVE to do it in a flashy routine and you're not a total expert, do it at the end. If you're doing a weapons show, try throwing your front leg out and coming down with an overhead swing with your weapon, and then just staying like that. Makes for a dramatic ending.

    you need to alternate you streching routine, just as you would your strength training routine.

    You need to focus on stretching belly of the quadriceps and the belly of your hamstring muscles.

    stretching your hamstrings with forward bending and a lot of kicks, and stretching your quads with alot of bridges and runner stretches.

    of course, genetics helps! And make sure to stetch only when your muscles are hot and exausted, never when you are cold!!!!!

    As some one who can do the splits between chairs, there are no secrets- stretch more.

And then you'll get your **** pushed in.
    I"m telling you, the crotch shot really works! When you're flexible enough to totally ignore the chin na (joint lock) some opponet tries on you, you can just clobber them because the just don't know what to do!
