    Looks like Maxim is joining in the Martial Art BS Game

    #3 Shin Kicking:



    After reading the article, and in truth I would have to concur with a lot of it, I find Danny Acosta's article quite limited and ignorant in some of his conclusions. We could completely take a part every opinion but we'll leave this up to you.

    Sumo seems pretty handy, actually. But the article reads like a poor copy of Sean Baby's Cracked articles.

        So because it's Maxim the writer has to be douchy? And wtf was with that list they found some shit called shin kicking to make a point?
        Fu Hung Hsieh remains Fu Hung Hsieh and Kung-tzu Yu remains Kung-tzu Yu.

            Totally legit, I'm sure.

              The shin kicking/purring he's talking about is kicking TO the shins with the feet, not kicking WITH the shins.

                Didn't care for Mr. Acosta's article. Shin kicking -- tho arguably the most SD practical of the five -- is more like hopsack racing than a martial art. The statement about learning a martial art from old people in a park, and other comments about TaiChi, is just deliberate ignorance for the entertainment of his readers. And I really wish people would stop putting up Seagal's face whenever Aikido comes up, like he is the official spokesman and Great Kahuna of Aiki. He's really not helping Aikido's image problem.

                  Whatever, it's Maxim - Penthouse to GQ's Playboy. That it has any article on MA, let alone one deriding the perceived bottom 5, is more of a cultural commentary than anything else.

                  Actually, it's kinda sad that Cracked has been years ahead in this space.

                    Looks good, the movements resemble judo foot sweeps, but with straw in your pants.
