      No word on the 2666 BC lineage? It still looks like Arakan's origins have more to do with a sales brochure than a bronze age clandestine royal bodyguarding system.

      TakeItEasy has Arakan in his style field. It would be nice if he was around and could shed some light on this, since apparently nobody else can.

        Arakan the style you train in is non-existant in the country it comes from. The historical accuracy of the website is laughable. You may vary well enjoy the style ( good for you) but please don't expect people who may know better to buy into something that is not true

          As for wind pipe crushing, I've been running stairs at the track before and slipped, fallen and been to tired to put my hands out, the edge of a stone step hit my windpipe with all of my weight, gravity and the force of me running up the stairs behind it. No crushing, no rupture, just hurt and made swallowing an annoyance for a few days.
          So unless you personally have performed this windpipe crushing on someone I wouldn't recommend relying on it. The same for organ obliterating hammerfist prana, if you haven't ruptured anyones organs with it then don't expect said rupturing to occur.

            There is no may about it. Anyone that has taken basic biology and human anatomy knows that much of the rip, shredding, muscle tearing, internal bursting can't happen as describe in most MA.


            Now before someone comes but what about......blah blah blah.

            Yes, under supreme optimum conditions, any of the things claimed may have a very minute chance of happening.

            A logical person understands that. these things are so infinitesimal that you shouldn't base any MA around these strikes.

              I got punched in the throat a few weeks ago sparring with a guy who just won a lightweight mma title. He doesn't hit like a bitch (actually I've met a few bitches who hit pretty hard but you get the point) and last time I checked, I'm not dead.

              Also just got over a bruised trachea from BJJ. That was fun too......

              Guess what?

              Still not dead.

              And if every time you slammed somebody in the ribs there was a high risk of internal bleeding you'd have piles of dead fighters all over the place.

              There's no magic bullet for fighting. You hit (or whatever) the other guy until he stops moving and hope you can keep him from doing the same. Course I suck, so maybe somebody wants to offer a different opinion.

              Go placidly amid the noise and haste,
              and remember what peace there may be in silence.
              As far as possible, without surrender,
              be on good terms with all persons.
              Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
              and listen to others,
              even to the dull and ignorant;
              they too have their story.

                See, thing is you claim you suck. So, if an art is so superior and so deadly you are exactly the type of person who should be dead.

                That is one of the outs of so called deadly arts. You aren't going to encounter a "professional" fighter. They train for the average Joe.

                So, if you really suck that makes you an average Joe. Since you haven't died that tells us about the deadly super rupture 5 finger death palm.

                  The guy who hit me is a pro......shit, maybe I really am dead....does that mean this is heaven? I gotta say, if this is heaven, can somebody point me to the complaint department I need to have a word with the guy in charge.....

                  And yeah, I really do suck.

                    Oh I'm sorry you were hit by a MMA SPORT FIGHTER. My bad you fail. MMA doesn't work in the street.

                      Its kinda hard to keep a hypodermic need from piercing your rashguard you know...especially when wielded by a crack-whore, who can suck start a buick and is on PCP.

                        Also, I forgot he is a pro which lose even more points in credibility.

                        Enough of the derail. Tom may hurt my beautiful post count.

                        I'm always dubious of anyone having previous Martial Arts experience "discovering" a new Martial Art.

                          yeh i just had a private lesson followed by a group class last night. I am now a solid believer......................
                          Arakan is awesome. I shame myself that i let your *beliefs* pass through my mind. I felt the hit last night. they were only 15- 20% of what we had and they still hurt like hell.

                          I also told my instructor about this website. he laughed and told anyone at all to come down for a free intro. do it. now thats pretty ballsy for a "BS martial art" ha ha ha.

                          I don't need any sypathy from you or luck. I know how much arakan kicks ass and if all of your egos are to proud to even try an intro (for those of you in the area) then i honestly feel sorry for you. you are missing out on a great opportunity.

                            No, Balsy would be to go and enter MMA with his deadly martial art and prove it.

                            Go and find a real club and spar with someone who has one year of training.

                            Also, make us a deal. After you grow up come back and read this thread.

                              Dude, you came to us. We didn't walk into your gym.

                              And I don't have an ego about this (or much of one at all) or anything invested other than not seeing somebody else get sold on a bunch of shit. I gotta be honest with you, this "art" of your instructors is manufactured. It exists only in his head and yours.

                              Is it the worst thing I've ever seen? No. But its close.

                              But I do like the fact that your instructor is open to somebody coming by. Tell me, is he open to you training other arts simultaneously?

                              Enjoy the brainwashing. It fucking pisses me off that people like that are allowed to operate.

                              And there's no way in hell he's gonna try and bang with an actual fighter. But I bet his reasons why he won't do it are gonna be different than what I think.

                                No it really isn't ballsy. See the key thing is free lesson. Ask him the next time if he would have a friendly spar.
