Andrew Bogut, Fake, and Friends: 3 months ago AIMAA 1 point Could you go into a little detail about your training in BJJ? Have you found that it contrasts a lot with taekwondo, or are some things that carry over? What kind of sparring do you do? Do you feel your training has given you the skills to defend yourself in a typical Fistreet altercation? Are there any aspects of your training that you felt were particularly worthwhile? Were there any that you wish you didn't have to do? permalink source save-RES report give gold reply hide child comments 3 months ago 1 point I later found out that my experience was very similar to what Bruce Lee went through when he met face to face with grappling. I couldn't believe how quickly I was beaten by someone with a black belt in Jujitsu. I trained in Aiki-Jujitsu Daitu Ryu. Pretty interesting stuff with joint manipulation and pressure points. All of which is illegal in UFC and other cage fighting. But it didn't used to be that way. When the UFC first started my friends and I would attend the matches and even participate ourselves. We wore full uniforms and I won a few matches with "aikido" moves that have since been deemed illegal I used to be deathly afraid to get into fights no More over I was afraid of getting mad. When you train for so many years to strike the throat quickly or the eye you wonder what your reaction will be in a fight. I'm in my 40's now so I don't think much on it. In Aikido you have already lost a fight if you are forced to defend or fight. In early ATA Taekwondo the sparring was super intense. We didn't do "point sparring". We went all out. If you didn't go home with bruises you weren't doing it right. It was always easy to tell who took the earlier classes in the day or the night before. From what I have seen it's just not that way anymore The best training I had was at a tradiitonal Aikido school. By traditional I mean in a real Japanese dojo. Whether it was 10 degrees outside or 110 degrees, it didn't matter. We trained in full uniform, hakama and all. There I learned staff fighting and katana fighting. The ebb and flow of Aikido changed the way I think about martial arts. Also, we sparred traditionally, so it was always the instructor Daniel Linden, pointing to two or more people and then telling them to kumite and it was rough. During my training an average month resulted in a broken nose, broken ribs, broken fingers torn ligaments, scraps, scratches, bumps, lumps and of course, bruises. It was by far my favorite training. I only left it because I moved out of state The meditative aspects of Aikido probably affected me the most. I still use the techniques daily to relax, deal with stress, etc. With simple meditation we were taught to instantly bring down the heart rate, breathing and just to relax. I wish more people knew about that permalink source saved-RES parent report give gold reply AIMAA. 1 point 3 months ago In early ATA Taekwondo the sparring was super intense.

From what I have seen it's just not that way anymore That's a real shame. Modern taekwondo really lacks that combativeness.

Honestly, I forget which. I was taking three different art forms at that time. Taekwondo lacks combativeness because of risk of suing. Also, parents get super pissed when little Tommy comes home with a black eye. Daito Ryu was just the first form of grappling I learned. It comes from the earliest organized form of martial arts in the world in Japan. I was created, as all of Japanese martial arts as we know it today, by a Japanese physician who wanted to know more about the human body. He dissected a lot of dead people to learn about pressure points, joint manipulation, etc. Unlike any other martial art, in Daito Ryu, every move ends in a kill move. Much of that was thrown out by the people that first created and made jujitsu popular. The things I could show modern grapplers. They'd shit themsevles. But, it's all illegal in tournaments. Pretty cool stuff though. Many of the moves result in an end move that mean a simultaneous broken hand, broken arm, broken collarbone, etc. It's theorized that multiple fractuers would send the person into instant shock, thus either incapacitating them or instantly killing them Either way, each and every move meant immediate incapacitation either way. It's really an incredible a form but very very risky and violent. permalink source save saved-RES parent report give gold reply 4 C-1 Larfox a 2 points 2 days ago Who did you receive your brown belt in BJJ from, and what year was this? permalink source save saved-RES parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply S] 1 point 2 days ago Chad Chilcutt who, at the time, was teaching out of Wimbleton Fitness out in Bartlett.
