    Boxing is the shiznitz. But keep an open mind...you never know.

        My Yiddish is a little rusty.

        Is "shiznitz" good or bad?

          Doing this with powerful people will certainly teach you what works and what doesn't...

          I disagree. Fancy is bad, whether it is "soft" or "hard." But TMA methods do work. I had a student with a fair background in other arts (to include some wrestling) that was an avid powerlifter. While there were some things that he could overcome simply because of his impressive strength, it made technical perfection even more important.

          Good common sense on both points.

            Throw a good round house kick in there and you are open for business.

            Punch, punch, kick.....punch, punch, punch, kick. Repeat as necessary.

              A chair and a whip always come in handy.

                Shiznitz would be on the good tip action.

                "Yiddish?"..nig-...pleez.

                  I agree with Darkson (and so did Andy Hug with his spinning heels-Gad they look like they hurt-the guy falling to the ground seemed to agree also. I did use a flippy little sissy backhand (heh, actually it was as hard as I could hit) to solar plexus to stop a body builder guy once. Stunned him. His basic technique was bear hug and throw down. It was a good technique for him. I can't stop people from giggling when I do it.

                    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?

                      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.

                        Please tell me this is not a recent epiphany, just a further solidification of truth you know already.

                        And stop nutriding.

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

                          This is not something to be proud about and/or post on the internet.

                              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.
