All of my martial arts lessons come from Enter the Dragon and the first Ninja Turtles movie - http://youtu.be/2zP7AsjhBW8?t=4m28s - never lower your eyes to an enemy!

This was before the MMA craze. Traditional styles are a dying art, although I could probably still lay the boots to alot of these"MMA" artists
Never heard of Arnis, sounds interesting. I skimmed the wiki page, seems like its a mix of Judo, Karate and stick fighting. Odd thing to be into, was it something you sought out or did you just happen by it somehow and decided to stick with it?

Be cool bro, I don't want any trouble. I'm not suicidal enough to **** with someone with an Affliction or Tapout shirt.

Those routines are the exact reason I hated Karate as a kid. Then I got yelled at for punching a kid in the face during a sparring session (one of the very few) while he was decked out in protective gear, at that point I was done with it.

I always felt that martial arts/self defense was for women, because women get raped, hassled by creeps, etc. Why does a guy need to know this stuff?

If anything, learn some basic boxing skills, how to thow a punch and avoid one. All you'll ever need.

Cause you get to fight and not get arrested... self defense class != combat sports.

To be a ****in badass knowing you can destroy fools if you ever need to. Roger Huerta destroyed that bigass dude that hit a girl. Pro fighters are basically superhuman with their reflexes and skills, they can own 99% of people out there.

If I ever start training seriously, I would probably go for Muai Thai and Judo, love using my elbows and knees more than punches.

Started with Muay Thai half a year ago. Really good all around workout and imo a lot more fun than lifting weights. Never understood why people assume combat sports are simply self-defence, they're a sport like any other (as the name implies) first and foremost.

With Judo you will learn how to do throws with very little effort which can potentially disable your opponent if he does not know how to break falls.

Default Re: Anyone train combat sports?

Been doing MMA for about 2,5 years now,with a few breaks in between, due to injuries and being really busy with work + study.

Bad stuff: Had a few trips to the hospital, with injuries to my legs and some skin infections as well.

The good stuff:
the training itself. Classes can be very mild, or very tough, depending on who gives the training and who you face during sparring. Not looking to fight matches, but I will do a grappling tournament in the short future. I grew up doing Judo as a kid, but played ball throughout my teens. I couldnt keep it up, because of being really busy and I couldnt always make it to training and games.. so I picked up MMA and did some kickboxing as well.

I like ground fighting a lot and follow extra grappling classes at another gym every now and then. Just had my first in gi BJJ class last monday and it was really heavy.. Definitely more exhausting than without gi. Maybe also because it was my first time.

Fighting is a lot of fun and it's a shame that I can't put more time into it. I train 2/3 times per week but that's about it. Other guys train 4/5 days and do multiple hours a day + do weights. I don't have that time due to being a student and working.


OP
Sambo is great. I only know of one dude that I sparred with who did Sambo, great wrestling and clinch control on the feet. Very different than BJJ/normal grappling. unorthodox, but efficient

Sambo is very similar to Judo in the sense that they both implement a wide variety of throws, the difference is that Sambo allows leg locks and shoulder locks where in Judo that's considered a penalty. I think Sambo begins to seperate itself from everything else with its unique strikes. An example would be Fedor's beast haymaker or as some people call it; "Sambo Casting Punch". This is a pretty good video describing the technique behind it and why it can be so effective/deceptive.

Arnis is filipino 2-stick fighting. It was actually the basis of kali and alot of basic hand movements incorperated with Jeet Kun Do. I was at it for quite a while, even instructed since my insrtuctor was a close family friend. We even instructed the police department in using batons

There it transitioned well into Kenpo relatively well since hand movements were virtually identical. I did that for most of my young adult and even competed and won state for my division.
