now I'm a grappling sort of fellow
but I love and aspire to skillful striking
I love NHB contests
and look forward to competing in them myself.
is high on my list of awesome because of its
which encourages participants to have excellant stand-up ability including throws
and then settles the matter in NHB style in the last two rounds. It's incredible, you'll see two great strikers hammer it out all match, but when the grappling gets let in whoever knows their stuff best wins it quick.
Plus the first two rounds of bare knuckle- you get to see all types of throws and takedowns which I love.
I feel its an event prized more by fighters maybe than by the public. It defines all the essentials of combat (IMHO)
not that any other event doesn't
just that this one allows more singular focus on aspects of the fight game.
It's almost academic in that regard.
anyways I just really enjoy this event and recomend it to anyone if the get a chance to see it on ESPN.
Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious
I for one welcome our new Ninja overlords.
I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

I have been thinking about sign up for Shidokan but I have NO idea what it is like so I am kinda just try to get more info on it so I know if I am really ready for it or not. Howeber I am not sure if they will let me compete due to my weight...
I would pick bag work over masturbating, fighting over sex, and KOing someone over having a orgasm!

From rules of Shidokan, http://www.shidokan.com/rules.htm:
(Interestingly enough, the page is entitled "Chicago Fitness Center")
Two (2), two (2) minute rounds Karate. Two (2) two (2) minute rounds with 10 oz. gloves, Kick-Boxing rules (no elbows). Two (2) two (2) minute rounds, 5 oz. gloves with Grappling permitted, NO TIME LIMIT.
I'm confused. Exactly what round does this lack of time limit apply to?

I always figured the short time limit (2 minutes isn't going to amount to much!) is there because a "martial art goal" (or whatever) is to finish a fight as quickly as possible. This ideal is mirrored in the ring, finish the fight as quickly as possible

Yeah, but then what does "NO TIME LIMIT" refer to?
