    >Yea, I follow you (up to the "no fishing" part, you mean fishhooks?).

    Fishhooks are not allowed, but "Fishing" means just laying there being overly passive, showing no aggression. Guy will get in the guard and try to catch a breather by doing things like holding the guys arms but not doing anything with it just keep them from striking, etc.

    A caveman was handed a loaded rifle one day. After inspecting it a bit, he concluded that the handle would make a good club. So he grabbed it by the barrel, ran up to an animal, and whacked it on the head. The shock discharged the shotgun, shooting the caveman, who had, of course, been holding it barrel-first.

    The cavemen may laugh at sharpshooter. They may ridicule him for standing far away, bothering to aim, and not using it as a club. Until the sharpshooter gets on of them.

    Hi there everyone

    This is my first time on this board and I think this is a really interesting site, however, I can see why a lot of people get pissed off with so-called Martial Artists: because they usually start spouting off about how they, and/or their style, are so ****-hot and how much they know or did, or who they beat up, blah, blah.

    As interesting and comical as all the replies have been they don't really answer the question.

    I think that the style of MA is secondary to ones reflexes, speed and natural fighting ability. The MA only refines and improves what you already have.

    I have been in a few brawls and a few TKD tournys. Im not a natural fighter - although i can adequately handle myself in a street fight I'm much better in the ring. I can beat guys in the ring who could whip my butt on the street. My ability was improved by constant hard tournament training, but it was formulaic. While some of it was useful outside the ring (avoiding being hit and countering, etc) a lot of it wasn't (ie multiple attackers, ground fighting, confined space/crowded room scenarios, etc).

    The reflexes and training will improve your chances against multiple attackers but will not make you invincible - especially with multiple attackers.

    So I say to Ratskeller, if you're serious about deflecting attacks (and obviously are not able to avoid the situation) then you need to train very regularly and intensely at a MA (or whatever) that involves a lot of the same kind of brawling you seem to get into. Add this to your previous MA knowledge and you should be set to go.

    Hows that for a politically-correct posting?

    Peace everyone

    Sage,

    Like I put on another thread and as one of my common sayings goes,

    "Judge the person NOT the art."

    Almost every art as it's good points but it is how it is used by the practioner is the key. The truth is that the majority of modern MA practioners really DON'T know how to apply what they learn. To them it is a HOBBY. Their LIVES do not depend on their skills. This puts things in a different prospective.

    Also I believe MA is NOT for everyone, despite whatever marketing gimmick is used. Just like everyone can't cook like a gourmet, or decorate like Martha Stewart, not everyone is cut out for MA. I am a natural athelete, genetics got tolove them :) But my forte is fighting. Therefore I will tend to do well at this than someone who is picking it up for a hobby. I am the opposite of you. I am VERY good at handleing a real altercation (I am known for this :D ) but I don't always do well in tourneys, more specifaclly point kumite but I aways place I do well in MMA competitions.


    SPITE!!!!!!

    It is Stipe, thanks.

    You aren't offering me what I want, I am not ready to compete in MMA nor have I asked you for any promotion services.

    What I want is to hear who are the aikidokas on top of the NHB fighting world.
    Or even in the middle of it.

    I know there's plenty at the bottom.

    First off you didn't ask ME for any AIKDOKA!!!

    I know you have a faulty memory so I will help you, you need it!

    "I" challenged your statement!!!

    I PROVED you wrong!


    So what if you don't like the pple I presented, TOUGH!!! It doesn't change the FACTS.

    You whine: You listed two nobodies.

    Let's get the FACTS and LOGIC straight since you can't. THEY are competitors YOU are NOT!!! Therefore YOU are the NOBODY!!! Get it! Of course you won't because it will take a BUILDER to get through your skull.

    Seriously do you have any REAL insight or do you just watch tapes and spew OTHER PPLEs info. See the major difference here is I HAVE insight. Talk about MMA I can you MY expereince. Talk about real altercations again I can offer that too. MA Knowledge in general, well I am willing to bet I would BURY you. BUT what have YOU given? NOTHING of substance.
