    Warning new posters of your lies and bullshit is definitely on topic.

    So New Posters : None of his MA experiences, stories, or history have been verified but plenty of his lies have been proven to be lies. His "I am/was just trolling" was a lie told after he was called out and proven to be a liar.


    *edit* and you have only embarrassed yourself with your antics and lies buddy.

    [QUOTE=Gropette;2945970]Hi folks,

    which of the following art would you take(one) to compliment boxing:

    Define spending too much time on the ground. Boxing is awesome, but without Judo and Wrestling chances are good you will end up on the ground. You may get a quick KO, you may not. Here is what I say: Ground fighting is 20% of fighting. Unless you are on the ground, then it is 100% of fighting. One solid year of BJJ should give you what you need. roll with higher belts and your knees should be fine.

    I can tell you stick and knife is hard on the knees also. I had to have surgery on my right knee for a torn ACL and meniscus tendon removal. But to be fair, that was when I was doing full contact sparring and the knee was actually injured when I was in the lock down position in half mount and was trying to pass. But I've done wrestling and stick fighting after my surgery and both are as hard on my knee as the other. Wrestling mostly when doing penetration steps to achieve takedowns. But when I fight off my back there are no knee issues. When doing BJJ as long as I have a knee pad on, no issues. Depending on what your knee issue is, I would go with BJJ.

    Oh and my answer to the reason to train in stick and knife fighting is because it's fun. I don't carry a knife, I carry a gun. But I have sticks planted all over my house and car and would be very confident fighting anyone with a stick unless they had a gun. Empty hands vs stick, knife vs stick, stick vs stick I would gladly participate in.

    Boxing goes very well with BJJ. Arnis is very, very hard to find, but if you can real FMA's are absolutely devastating. BJJ is much easier to find. Boxing will fix the problems in BJJ, and Gracie JJ is much more focused upon self defense than sport BJJ.

    I recommend a 1 year 3 day a week commitment to BJJ.

    Real Krav is good, but 95% I have seen is watered down Garbage.

    It is obvious that having a knife is a big advantage in a confrontation (putting aside ethical concerns), just think how difficult is to hurt seriously someone with a punch VS how difficult with a sharp blade.
    Now if what you want is to be 100% sure to be able to defeat anyone if you have a knife, this is more difficult.
    the biggest problem i see when weapons are involved in MA training is that people usually disregard the other party's potential and capabilities aka what he can do to you, instead focusing on what you can do to him.

    most instructors focus on the badassery you'll get learning his system and not on how and why the perp will gut/shoot you.

    let's put it this way: most assume that the perp is stupid enough to attack you even though you have a weapon. in training, the perp can't weigh the pros and cons, but in real life it's the vulnerable that gets attacked. by securing all the advatages they can get, they increase your vulnerability level and thus increasing their chances of success. if one's so goddamn badass like a porcupine and it's easy to stick your quills into the perp (ethikos' previous statement reworded), why would someone attack them then?

    I recently went with a finely tapered hickory and brass cane... it is classy, legal everywhere, and a skull cracker.

    Unless you run your mouth you probably don't need to actually worry about self defence eh.

    1.You won't have to get into fights over women. No chick wants to hang with the weirdo always walking around with a sword on his waist.

    2. You won't have to look for a letter opener.

    sorry, but that's a load of hogwash. your "untrained" attacker/"average" sd goon wouldn't attack unless:

    1. he has the advantage of surprise or
    2. he has the advantage of experience or
    3. he has the advantage of being crazy, either innate or by chemicals.

    most sd training that spars focuses on #3, the usual bar scenario. those that don't spar thinks that their "training" is effective against #1 and #2.

    and as rabbi mike t. said, being able to draw your knife timely is hard. it takes a lot of training to do it safely and effectively. not to mention sticking it in in a way that it creates immediate damage. sparring creates the necessary body language that says you're willing to stick it into him, but it's only a part of the equation. the other parts include test cutting with raw/live meat, proper concealment that facilitates accessibility, proper blade orientation via touch during grappling/ low light conditions, proper articulation of justifications, etc.

    easy against an "untrained" attacker? think again.
