    The people I am sparring with have trained/or are training in MA. It makes life a little more complicated.

    This thread.....is kinda.....dumb.

    "Quick and simple is best, fancy and flashy results in much pain."
    Please tell me this is not a recent epiphany, just a further solidification of truth you know already.

    And stop nutriding.



    "A buddy I used to train with made mention that bodybuilders are more susceptile to strikes to nerve centers. Can anyone validate that or was he full of it?"

    Probably full of it, the added muscles cover the nerve centres making it LESS susceptible to attack.

    This is true and false... It is true that some striking points that affect the belly of a muscle, the insertion or origin of a muscle, or a nerve that runs superficially to the muscle can be struck with slightly less effort than on, say, a fairly chubby guy who's body fat covers the muscle.

    Deep innervation of a muscle, and an attempt to strike a specific "nerve" point (understanding that vital points are divided into muscle, nerve, blood, and bone points, or combinations thereof) is made because that nerve (or blood vessel, or bony surface, etc.) is vulnerable due to its anatomical position... So big guy, little guy, it doesn't matter, as the point is nearer to the surface anatomically on nearly everyone, hence its common use as a striking target.

    strikes to nerve centers... maybe with a bullet. That might work.

    Man, are you prone to PMS sometimes.


    quit your crying and pump some iron!

    I was just in the gym for the last 4 hours.
