Jaral Bowman is one of the best SanDa fighters in the world? I fought him at Mohegan Sun last August.

EDIT:

Mind you, I lost. But I took a round against him. I didn't think he was world class by any means, no offense to him.



I just came across this forum on a random search... I feel that I am the best SanShou/SanDa fighter in the world at 135 lbs. and would relish the opportunity to prove it. The fights at the Mohegan Sun were on a whim. I cam e with no corner people, no coaches, no sponsors. I did not cut weight or spend an extended period of time preparing for this tournament.


I have never lost a round in SanShou or SanDa. The results are easily attainable for those who wish to dispute it. SanShou and SanDa fights are very hard to come by. If there is anyone between 147-135 lbs. who thinks they can beat me under SanShou/Da rules, please name a place and location, and I would be happy to prove my skills and ability. For those of you who may think negatively about my skills obviously have not fought me. I have wins in kickboxing, boxing, MMA and Kyokushin Karate from 170 lbs. to 135 lbs.

I am very disappointed that any of my opponents at the Mohegan Sun tourney would try to downplay or naysay my skills and ability. I stopped one guy and I carried the other guy because he seemed so nervous and he was so easy to hit. If you look closely at the footage, you will see that he never won a round nor put forth much offense. Not to say that he had no skills or ability, but I think nerves and lack of experience stifled his somewhat limited skills and ability. Being a fighter with a multitude of fights on 3 different continents, I remember what it's like to be nervous and inexperienced. And If I'm going to win, I don't feel the need to overwhelm or embarass my opponents. As I've said before, if anyone doubts my abilities, name a place and opponent and I will be more than happy to display my skillset. I enjoy fighting, but do not truly care for competition because when competing, you are subject to the analysis of people who are not your equals. I don't mean to sound rude, but for someone that I've beaten to cast any sort of negative light, however slight it may be, I find offensive and would enjoy to rectify the situation.

I relish the idea of competing in a SanShou/SanDa match at 147-135 lbs. as i feel it is the penultimate combat form.

Welcome to Bullshido.

Could you tell us why you feel San Da is the "penultimate combat form"?

Can you provide proof of all your SanDa victories?

I can vouch for Jaral being a legit badass. We were sparring partners a few years ago at Shidokan. I think I may have mentioned in that old thread that he is for real. In our part of the country it is freakishly hard to find Sanda fights. That Mohegan Sun fight was 1000 miles away for him.

There are like 30 videos under his name. I am assuming there are three VERY similar looking fighters by the same name ...


... right?

No. He has a ton of fights. This is him:

I trained with Jaral a lot but it was about 5 years ago now. He is serious in the first post when he said he went easy on the less experienced guy. Whether he is talking about strikeistanian or not I don't know. I frankly thought the same thing when I saw the video from the Mohegan Sun. I've seen him do that before.

So...

Who's going to be brave enough to tell him he used "penultimate" incorrectly?

Oops.

I know ... I was being silly.

He looks damn good from I have seen.






Jaral,
Are you a trainer ?

I like the way you do things standing up for sure.
