actually they use the Claymore, heavy, rugged, and completly ineffective at proper man to man close quaters fighting. Besides the english tradition was to sit on a hill and Longbow the scotish to death smile.gif

Martial arts is great for keeping active, and also its a challenge. i would recomend that anyone should give it a go.

There is a difference between Krav Maga or Systema on one hand, and karate or kungfu on the other. The first are meant as ways to kill (offensive, use by armies) and the second are more a way of life, teaching respect and restraint instead of only teaching you how to beat people to death.


Yes I know, but that was my point. The karate moves aren't really designed for real life situations whilst Krav Maga or Systema is. If you are interested in a way of life, personal training etc etc, go karate etc. IF you are interested in self defense etc go Krav Maga or Systema. Simple.

I second that.

I debated for ages what to take up, in the end I never got round to it, probably cos I couldn't be faffed.
I now do professional wrestling, yes the stuff you see on TV. Before anyone gives me the "its all fake" bollocks, try it out first. It hurts like hell due to the bumps you take in the ring and a lot of the moves if done properly could easily kill or disable an opponent, not that I'd want to, it's just handy to have that sort of stuff under your belt with the world we live in today thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

As you will already know Brataccas, I do Muay-Thai-Boxing. I would recommend it. Much better than Karate and all that.

Really, you either wanna be a swift fighter who does all this poop with his hands OR you wanna like be able to kill anyone by punching,kicking,kneeing,elbowing people.

But in Muay, you don't tend to use your hands as much as you would in Boxing. They are more like a guard and there for when you need it but all the power and skill really comes from your legs.

lo dude
Something to consider that could be classed as an art form (?) would be swimming and airsoft. After doing it for 3 years solid now my fitness levels have shot up uberly. I feel confident in the use of a gun and its upped my pain and fear factors. Add to that the leadership skills running squads, how to act calm and cool in heated stressful situations which works wonders for the job - got me at least 1 promotion. The best bit by far is the constant explosions and grenade attacks you face numb you to loud bangs. Standing in the office and someones car backfires everyone screams and ducks and your the only one standing looking around like ... what?
Tho that can backfire on you like it did for the squad sitting in Pizzahut at the end of a day of airsofting. Someone dropped a metal plate *boom* and we all hit the deck. rofl.gif
cheers

Gonna start Krav Maga tomorrow, most likely... already had 1 lesson for introduction, which just "happened" to be one of the basic courses last lessons. tongue.gif

Was pretty fun, still lacked the power and coordination so didn't do the moves at full speed... could barely move my arms after the lesson, ouch.

Quite oftenly most arts are severly mis-understood! Ive been a shotokan karate practitioner for about seven years, yeah, 2nd dan. After a while, Just running through old movements again and again is the same for most styles. It get's boring for beginners and people who visit to spectate, simply because of mis-interpretation.
A lot of folks with their minds in eastern flicks expect jumping spin-kicks and bacflips off walls, and looking for movement similar to the karate kid, but don't get it.
The form is split up into sets of movements called Kata's, yeah they look wonderful, beautiful, WOW the audience all the time. Large, long and powerful movements, all over-emphasized and are expected to represent a one man unarmed civvy taking on a japaense fortress full of hostiles. But in reality that just aint gonna happen! Things change, you are more likely to be confronted today with a large smashed bottle than a steel blade.
And this is where karate is mis-understood. Yeah we realize that this is the truth, in all cases of any art for that matter, and a goor practitioner will more geared towards implemeting his chosen style with forethought as to which situation he is more likely to be confronted with. So, we look into our movements differently, and think about how and what it is they are trying to achieve! To the untrained eye, a movement looks impressive, and may appear to have a very basic output, but to the beginner black belt, he is only just starting to understand the deadly intent of his movements.
I Like shotokan karate, it's emphasis is power, speed and stamina, that's all you need. There's no magic dragon breathing flames from your eyes, there's no mountain warrior, just yourself in an unrban environment trying to protect yourself should the worst happen. Iv'e tried kung-fu, tae-kwondo, but i just didn't like the lack of modern discipline invovlved. I am told that in the early days of karate, Japs were jumping out of windows in dojo's and clubs, Simply because exreme discipline annd getting whacked. I can tell you, not much has changed since those days. Coming home with bumps and bruises after a session is highly rewarding; keeps you fit, makes you tougher. and increases your sense of humour strangely enough.

Rant Over.

And the best defence of all, if it's possible, is to run away!

Not done it since I finished 5th year at high school but I've done Kun Gek Do/Gwon-gyokdo for a year un graded and have been tempted to start doing Shōrin-ryū at the Uni but the projected amount academic work that i'll have next year probably rules out most sport aside from windsurfing

You too huh? Nice! I do Krav Maga Israeli Martial Arts. I'm P3 equivelant (I'm to young to grade) Very violent but fun combat system. You can only do it (In england this is) if you have done martial arts before. I currently hold a black belt 1st dan in san bu do Karate, and have trained in brazilian jujitsu, jujitsu, aikedo, samba and Silat.

When I was in the Army I participated in Brazilian jujitsu classes offered. In basic training we did about 16 hours worth of introductory stuff as well, I have to say as far as "ease of learning" its great. Everything is simple yet effective easy to pick up as long as you drill, theres not much to it as far as standing up though, the key is getting your opponent on the ground by any means possible, but once on the ground you can pretty much take them apart.

Havent hered abut any military using Systema..
Denmark
Norway
Sweden
Germany
UK
USA
France
Israel

is using Krav Maga.
You can lern the civilian version in almost any big town.
But dont think the civilian version is any thing like the military one, In the civilian you lern self defence.
In the military one you lern to kill your enemy, and iam not talking baut stoping just bekus he is down,
If hes not dead jump on his head and then move on...
