Some stuff for you TKD and Kung Fu lovers.

March 11, 2008

Hey, I’m back. I was watching a lot of videos online, and I was wondering how the best way to show people various types of kicks and other stuff. I was originally gonna make a video myself and comment… But I am rather busy these days, so I’m going to show you some good examples and comment on it. I’ll be making lots and lots of videos for people once my days get a little less busy. So in like a month or so. Heres the first vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLyy4YAl2Qk . If you want listen to the story, it doesn’t really have any importance, but what the heck… The first thing I saw about the fighting was that, it was very similar to several other styles, of course, someone who didn’t know much about MA wouldn’t be able to tell. Their are elements of TKD, Kung Fu and other various things in their, watch it to look for the spinning kicks, in particular the spinning reverse and the jumping roundhouse. Which they use very well in this vid. But when sparring or fighting. Don’t try to be flashy, it’s just not good for it. keep it simple enough for you to be able to stay safe, and not give away an attack, but also enough to get some maneuverability. Heres another video on basic TKD stuff. Good for learning the little bits of a technique. Watch the placement on the back kick. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A2dk06o_XA. And heres something nice I found, flashy kicks this time folks! A little treat for you, the smaller guy is really good, his placement and everything is really nice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9A2dk06o_XA. This is all I can do, it’s getting late, I’m going to do a video of my own, maybe flashy stuff or basic, or maybe even forms… That’ a thought…

Taekwondo fighting and training. Part 1. What’s good for you.

March 3, 2008

If you are a tall person, I can give you one kick that will define your Martial Arts succes, the Axe kick, Dun Dun Dun! It’s a fact, tall people in the 6’4+ range can expect this kick to work well universally for anyone shorter then you. Use this kick! I’m not joking, if you’re tall use it! One kick on the head “bonk” and there’s a point, if you’re doing point sparring, and if you’re fighting knock outs, just knock him out! Also for tall people, smaller shorter people will take advantage of the fact that you will come to them, they’re not gonna go to you unless their sure that they can get a point. So, They’re gonna wait till you’re coming at them and their gonna either close the distance to fast for you to get an attack in, OR, they’re gonna throw in a straight kick. Now then, some of you might wonder, “phiff, whats a straight kick from a small 5’3 guy that weighs 110 pounds gonna do to me?” The answer, A LOT. If they go all in will the kick without drawing back, YOU WILL BE KNOCKED OFF YOU’RE FEET! I have to fight a LOT of taller bigger and heavier people then me, and this is a good kick for the little guy, either front kick, side kick, but the best is back kick. Or jumping back kick. Please, please, bear in mind this is not the only way, and most experienced fighters will know this stuff by heart and WILL use it if you give them the chance. I’ll post a thing on shorter people and continue the taller person thing again, and again until I’ve covered everything.

Types of MA’s and basic intel for the unlearned, (and maybe something for pros)

February 28, 2008

There are many types of MA’s as everybody knows, but I’ll try to write down some of the more common ones and map them out for you.

1st: There are the most common type of MA that people think of when they hear the words Martial Artist. The basic bruise-break-and-destroy type would have under it’s banner the likes of Karate, Taekwondo, a few kinds of Kung Fu, and maybe, just maybe Judo. This type has usally one or two things in common. They all involve using a mix of foward and backward enegy. Meaning, they practice using your hands and feet to destroy the enemy, but also involve using the energy of the opponent, but this is more like the second type of MA. All MA have these two in common, but not all concentrate on them with the same fervor.

2nd: MA’s like Aikido, Jujitsu, almost all kinds of Kung Fu, Judo, and believe it or not, even Kendo has some aspects of this. Using the opponent’s energy is usefull when you can’t overpower or defeat your enemy though the normal means, because he is much strong/bigger/heavier then you. You enable your self to seem to have the strength of a giant, flipping, throwing, and tossing people many, many pounds heavier then you, you also can use this to be a “Rat in a lion’s den” so to speak by getting around his attacks, and use this opening to create a much bigger finale.

There are many, many more things to write about, and I don’t think I did this post justice but, I’ll continue to try boosting it up every now and then. And, sorry if you were looking for a little more detail on a specific MA, I can post all that I know on a specific subject to anwser your comment or e-mail.
