um...yes it is lol...

I h8 street fights but...every one i've ever been in i've won, and i've never thrown a punch in them. Getting choked out or having something dislocated = u loose biatch.

Lets refer to the UFC, any pure striker vs a grappler - it can turn out very bad for the striker, i.e. a lot of hoyce gracies fights.

ARE THERE ANY REAL MARTIAL ARTISTS IN SB??? or just a bunch of judgey people who watch fights on tv? because so far its a fail for ur arguments.

If you can't draw a distinction between rolling with someone or being in a situation where someone genuinely wants to hurt you, you're clueless. I am pretty sure you probably do take a martial art, and you've probably bounced around a few studios as you got bored with it. But I am very skeptical of your other claims. First, it is pretty obvious by your posting you're no older than 13. That rules out the 20+ years of experience. Secondly, you are touting your practice and event participation as being in "fights".

lol...i've done a lot of boxing/kickboxing/muai tai fights too bro... aaaaaand mma. also when someone is trying to choke u its not a gentle thing.... u seem to think only throwing kicks and punches is effective eh? now who's clueless. And 'rolling" i would consider grapling in a dojo outside of competition. Even then its the same lines...i've seen people get their collar bones ripped open, and dislocated joints galore( usally only happens when the person has both arms pinned and they arent able to talk from how they are being submitted). It doesnt feel any more threatning when someone is attacking me on the street or in a boxing match or whatever. Maybe ur grappling kittens? or little kids? try training w/ someone who is a pro-fighter, or drop by my familys olympic judo dojo in mississauga. Hmm...i should drop by there too...(just found a whole lot of estranged family) I only asume they are hardcore...since they do olympic trianing there...ive never been..yet.

now ur just being asinine. i'm not including practice. Hell in sweden there was a kickboxing champ that racked up around 700 fights in a few years. I think it was sweden.

I dont see why this is so hard to believe...

Well! Since were talking about martial arts! My mom put me in Taekwondo, or however it's spelled, when I was like fourteen. Figured being a girl in Sacramento I needed to learn how to defend myself. I won a couple trophies in sparring competitions (only one was first place and probably only because I was awkwardly tall and had a overpowered reach on the poor kid with my legs) it was fun. Made it like halfway through got bored and went back to FFVII....

I had a girlfriend who was a black belt in Taekwondo. She competed and all that jazz. One day she decided she was going to "kick my [fluffy bunnies]". I grabbed her leg, picked her up and threw her in the swimming pool.

its a good style for you, as women have a lower center of gravity and can maintain balance while kicking better then men. Not because they are shorter =P, but because of their bodies builds. like moco said taekwondo is very kicky. i also have no idea how to spell it.

only problem is...taekwondo tournaments dont tend to be full contact...and i've seeeen a lot of blackbelt martial artist that cant do a thing against a good street fighter. Just because they've never trained in a real fight...their opponents are also training and they are being too gentle on eachother. Its the biggest flaw in the industry. blackbelt kittens.

This fellow compared muay thai with capoeira (a name he cannot even spell properly). There's a reason you don't see capoeira in any real tournament, and it's highlighted quite clearly in that gif (which is from a movie, actually). It's the same reason karate doesn't cut it anymore. Those fight styles advertise their moves, making them easy to counter. They got bred out of serious competitions.

Anyways, if this guy has been in "thousands of fights," I'm sure he can provide evidence in the form of a sherdog record or something similar. He cannot, of course, because he is clearly just trying to look hard on the interwebz.

u almost said something smart =P...just because u are in fights doesnt make u hard =P. i just h8 when people are ignorant...and i like people knowing whats true.
When i start competeing in mma again(now that its legal in canada) i'll be reccording my fights so i can get in to ufc and Skah! soooooo....ill have a recording then. Otherwise its just me when i was younger and a much less complete fighter. and im not recording unsanctioned fights...give it a few months...until then lets all shhhhh on this topic..were filling this up with garbage arguements. yall are just pissing me off w/ ur bs.

Remember this all started w/ me saying i broke a toe on a dudes rib...broke/dislocated. thats hardly trying to seem hardcore...if i wanted to seem hardcore i would make a reference where i seemed awsome and indestructible. it was just a fight reference i thought was funny.

ps we all know spelling makes u a good fighter. Right tele? No style is outdated. Every move has its situational place in a fight, in every style, just dont dance around like a mook.

I'd wager most of your posts on this forum are about your "MMA Career". The rest are about your expertise on mental disorders.

That's because you forgot the first rule. You don't talk about fight club.

It is near nigh impossible to believe you. Like Verv said earlier, no reason to doubt you practiced some of the disciplines you mentioned, but really who cares? The problem is your claim of over a thousand "fights" and your claim to join the UFC or some other Pro association soon... Logic dictates that you are full of Skah! just based on your own admissions. Practicing 20+ years, means that you gotta be in your late 20s or even mid 30s (saying your parents had you in martial art classes since you were a tween, which gauging by your online persona, I doubt you continued to practice during your teen years. Also, what is the prime for a fighter? Mid 20s to late 30s at the most, unless you are a freak of nature like Randy Couture, the average age is 30, and those that skew the average higher, have been in the sport in the pro arena for the last decade at least.

In a few months, what exactly is going to happen? Post links to videos of your previous fights. If you tell me that there are none, then even worse, because a fighter that doesn't watch videos of his own fights doesn't learn a damn thing. Or, stop exaggerating your life. If I can give you a piece of advice, let it be this: No one gives a Skah!.

It is near nigh impossible to believe you. Like Verv said earlier, no reason to doubt you practiced some of the disciplines you mentioned, but really who cares? The problem is your claim of over a thousand "fights" and your claim to join the UFC or some other Pro association soon... Logic dictates that you are full of Skah! just based on your own admissions. Practicing 20+ years, means that you gotta be in your late 20s or even mid 30s (saying your parents had you in martial art classes since you were a tween, which gauging by your online persona, I doubt you continued to practice during your teen years. Also, what is the prime for a fighter? Mid 20s to late 30s at the most, unless you are a freak of nature like Randy Couture, the average age is 30, and those that skew the average higher, have been in the sport in the pro arena for the last decade at least.

In a few months, what exactly is going to happen? Post links to videos of your previous fights. If you tell me that there are none, then even worse, because a fighter that doesn't watch videos of his own fights doesn't learn a damn thing. Or, stop exaggerating your life. If I can give you a piece of advice, let it be this: No one gives a Skah!.
nah...not tween...I was a violent kid...so my dad put me in the "pacifist martial art" Judo...i was 6. i grew up a bad area, and it kind of helped to mellow me out. it would be better if no one cares...because then no one would comment on it...and id like that more...but people seem to have furiouse debate over it...which i dont prefer. what about prime? idk. probably early 30's at its latest is prime(late teens- early twenties is prime)just a few years after the body stops maturing(the age will depend on the person)...and im 27 so ya...i gotta get on that horse. U all just seem so ill informed i cant help but throw a note in again.... lol...

Note that based on physics, the human body-partially due to muscle memory- will get "stronger"- and is its strongest -around its 40's-50's, in terms of muscle mass. this is excluding the factors of tendon problems, bone problems, and loss of speed and endurance. soooo....i wouldnt count out older fighters(though im still in my prime and am not an "older fighter"lol). Its all about adjusting ones style based on how ones body can function, as fighting has always been. Know ur limits and work with them blahblahblahblahblah. as far as watching fights...nothing is better to learn from then the actual fight istelf...i do, when learning new techniques watch recordings i have been able to make of myslef...but those are hardly fights. And ya they are very helpfull in perfecting technique.

also...the fact that u think fighters cant learn anything unless they see vids of themselves is moronic lol...ur right that they help though....but u seem too finite there dude. If u dont have a coach then ya, it could pose a problem...but thats what coaches are there for, to point out what u might not notice...as u cant learn what u have yet to see. Fighting is about learning...endlessly, and inevitably as your body changes so too must your style.

and note i wouldnt post any fight related vids here in the future...but for some reason i feel compelled to rub a doinks face in it...which is childish and should be beneath me. Since i said i would already...i will...and if anything for u haters it will be worth a laugh right? I say a few months because thats how long it will take me to get back in the game...i've been out almost a year now. Endurance is key...and at the moment i lack the proper endurance to compete at anything more than amateur levels...lest i finish a fight real fast. I mean judo and aikido will help me minimize my energy and use my oponents against them...but once u get on the ground and in to grappling your endurance means everything...i can stand and strike for over half an hour, butground game is the great destroyer of stamina-a thing i lack apropriate mesures of.

You all make me mad as hell...but at the same time all this talk is getting me excited...as soon as i get the cash im on the mats again. i

IF U DONT CARE MAKE NO COMMENTS AND STFU!
