Martial Arts/Fighting Systems

Hello all,

Sorry I've been quiet recently.

I'll preface this with an expectation of general discussion, not the usual 'my system beats your system' stuff that blights MA forums... Expect Kuk Sool Won..... (!)

Just wondered if anybody else on here practices any martial arts/fighting systems. For a few months now I've been learning Krav Maga, and whilst I'm still a rank amateur and have a very long way to go it's certainly become a passion and something I love doing.

I've made the title as such to include KM and MMA guys so as not to start a 'that's not a martial art actually.. ' replies!

Krav Maga is mental. Mind you it was invented by the Israelis (hail!!).

Nowadays, being too old, fat and slow :D I find a good punch in the throat or poke in the eyes works very well. That'll incapacitate most folk and you can pretty much pick yer shots after that (if you need to):mad::mad::D;).

Krav is certainly quite different to every other style, it's certainly more 'real world' than most and is designed solely to end a fight with maximum damage in minimum time.

A throat punch IS perfect Krav :p

Yeah, it is. Now where's Owen Jones??.....................................................................:exit::D:D
......... That ****.

I won't say any more on Mr Jones as this isn't the place to start bringing up political angles but I'm not a fan...

Been doing BJJ for a few years after being bullied into it by my (Black belt) son, absolutely hooked on it now
plus it's good all round fitness training even for an old fart like me. I know it's debatable whether it is a martial
art or a sport :whistle3:

BJJ is often mentioned as the most useful martial art and the basis of many other systems so I wouldn't dismiss its potency.

KM exists as simply a method of protecting life and offers far, far more 'dirty' methods than any other system, we draw no quarters, all is permissable, there is NO illegal strike in KM, what works.. Works.. No matter matter the brutality. In KM the goal (broadly) is to permanently incapacitate the opponent.

However BJJ is a highly respected art and it bears no repitition that it 'means business'

I did Wado Ryu Karate for a little over thirty years (taught for twenty of those).

Krav is still taking up a good deal of my limited free time (10 hours a week training) but I've a studio shoot booked in Friday so it will be good to 'get back on the horse'

I'll upload pictures soon!
