Hey there! I just joined this group. I've recently started judo but I've spent several years doing Muay Thai and Paral Serey / Khun Khmer beforehand. I've also dabbled in MMA, Japanese and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sanshou / Sanda, Northern Praying Mantis Kung-Fu and Kyokushin Karate.

I know many people think of martial arts training as being self-defense training. And of course there is some overlap there. But I do not see MA training as really being self-defense training as it is concerned with 'techniques' and while these are needed (though not many for real sd situation) there is so much more to self-defense training that techniques.

Most martial arts techniques have no place in a real fight in any case they are just part of the classical art. Understand I am a member of the Black Belt Hall of fame with advance rank in three Asian systems so I am far from 'putting down' martial arts here at all.

But my work a bouncer in the seventies and other combat experience showed me very clearly that MA does not really prepare the person for the adrenal stress affects which can make their technique knowledge and skill irrelevant and inaccessible, it does not teach the person how human predators think and thus how to avoid them and de-escalate them and avoid it getting physical. This is why I feel MA training, regardless of style is not tuly comprehensive SD training.

I also see very mistaken trend toward seeing what occurs in prize ring as being an actual 'fight' and people drawing conclusions about 'what will work in real fight' from these athletic. I certainly respect the spirit and skill of anyone who gets in that NHB ring, and long ago I trained some of them. But you can not draw many valid conclusions regarding anything you see in prize ring about what a real fight is like.

NOTE: this window seems to only allow and HTML post, and not a 'copy and paste' post, perhaps that is why people have not been able to post here?
