    Oh boy, I thought everyone had gotten over the style dead horse. But, then again, this board is called "Your Martial Arts Sucks".

    I would try coming up with points to say why my art can actually be an effective TMA when trained properly, but, you would probably be too stubborn to actually give me and my art credit.


    I'm not saying "EAGLE CLAW IS TEH BEST FOR T3H STR33T LOL", or "IT WINZ TEH MMA TOURNAMENTS!!". I'm not saying that. I'm just saying that when trained properly, it can be effective.

    In the case of Eagle Claw, the pyramid base is made out of rice crackers.
    What about the eagle claw schools that produce decent full contact competitors ?

    Sure, the proportion might be low relative to CMA as a whole, but surely somebody who happens to have one locally isn't wasting their time ?

    Why am I supposed to give your art credit based on your word? Everyone who trains in garbage thinks they are the exception to the lamentable state of their art.

    And then you lose all credibility by flat out trolling. It's easy to say someone's art is garbage without actual arguments.


    Jiu Jitsu is garbage.


    See how easy it is to do that?

    I can provide countless examples of jiu-jitsu's success in fighting. How many can you provide for eagle claw?

    I can give you an average jiu-jitsu practitioner and chances are extremely high he can handle himself in a fight. Can you say the same for the average practitioner of eagle claw?

    It's not trolling when I'm right.

    Actually, the number of Eagle Claw competitors suceeding in full contact tournaments isn't low at all, which is the point that you seem to ignore.

    How can I be ignoring something when you have failed to provide examples?

    Well, ever even bothered to look at kwoon websites? Many of them have a page displaying competition results.

    Why should I look for evidence to support your argument?

    Oh, sorry, I thought you had done research on Eagle Claw. Because, you know, I assumed you were familiar with it, since you called it garbage.

    Just because there are no EC competitors in UFC, PRIDE, and others, that doesn't mean it automatically sucks.

    I need to go somewhere now. I'm willing to continue this debate later, if you wish.
