You can't make the argument that Lee was possibly a great fighter then back peddle to he was only a movie star when he wrote books about fighting.

Not necessarily.

A naturally gifted athlete training in Tai Chi, Wing Chun, or Shorinji Kempo etc. only will not be on the same level as a less naturally gifted athlete training in knock down karate, Muay Thai, BJJ/Wrestling, etc.

starting judo this sunday, any tips or advice that can help me avoid rookie mistakes and the like?

>>709253
Going to the ground in the street is a sure fire way to get your head kicked in. At least with Judo you can quickly throw the guy, then turn to the next one.
>>
>>709254
Judo throws don't work in the street. you need a thick jacket for them to work. No one wears a judo uniform in the street. If judo was so good why dont we see it in UFC? Its always BJJ.
>>
>>709255
A) Plenty of Judo techniques can be done no-gi
B) People wear jackets.
C) Because in UFC you don't have to worry about your opponent's friends coming up and stomping your head in. BJJ is undeniably ultimate grappling in 1v1, but if I'm using grappling in a multiman fight, I'm doing quick throws that keep me on my feet.
>>
>>709256
any no gi judo moves are found in wrestling which is what is prefered by BJJ and UFC, again judo moves are over complex, low percent and you need special situations like people wearing jackets. hell wrestling is so over powered that judo has banned all wrestling moves.
>>
>>709260
Im sorry but judo is way better than BJJ for self defense. you can use them on someone wearing a shirt and there is even no gi varients of the throws. the reason judo isn't as popular as wrestling in mma is because there is a much bigger talent pool of wrestlers in the US. BJJ encourages going to the ground and has weak takedowns. a Judo throw to concrete will end the fight in a few seconds with you still standing.

That's actually surprising. The last I saw him, he looked pretty healthy. OK, he had jack all muscle mass left, but he didn't seem at all "worn" like a lot of wrestling veterans look.

I never really got to know Piper's wrestling stuff since wrestling wasn't easily available for viewing in my country in his prime times, but this movie is an awesome B-movie-style classic:

I mean.. happy people don't want to fight with random people they had no emotions towards at all right?

I had a pretty decent childhood. Had a decent amount of friends, started working at a young age, played a bunch of sports and video games. I got kicked off the wrestling team cause i got into a fight with another kid on the team when I was 14 and the principal said I had anger issues. His friend ran a boxing club so he actually took me there and signed me up.

Why can't Cena die instead of legends like Piper? Why is this world so cruel? My mother was a big wrestling fan back in the day and Piper was her favorite wrestler. She was pretty choked up when I called her and told her that her favorite wrestler from her era died.

So I was thinking about a new alternative sport which incorporates team play with parkour and mma.

essentially teams of mmartists fight in a giant foam covered stage with multiple things to jump on and climb.

you could have slayer matches, where first team to lose all it's members to ko or submissions loses, or you could have a capture the flag scenario to incentivize more parkour.

what do you think?
I think it sounds pretty extreme.

When I was a young knucklehead me and my buddies came up with an idea for a sport (after being inspired by too much dragonball and NFL blitz)
Game sort of works like this
>heavy ball (used a medicine ball) in center of field
>two or more teams start in there base on opposing sides of the field
>object of the game is to have someone on your team holding the ball inside your base
>no weapons or eyegouging, other then that it is up to the ref on what is a foul (which ain't much)
>can use just about any means to get the ball in your base or stop the other team(s) from getting it in theirs
>taking out the other teams members is a legit tactic
>Heavily implied that H2H is the real goal of the game

We called it brawl ball.
Only played it 3 times because each time someone got pretty badly hurt.

If someone figured out a way to make it safer while preserving the spirit of the game (goal oriented brawling) then it would be very entertaining.

/b/, long time muay thai and bjj practitioner here, but I'd like to ask you guys on your opinion on what would be a efficient martial art for a 'vigilante', something very defensive and focused on crowd control. Since I'm already good at muay thai and bjj I'm quite good on 1v1 or up to 3 person against me(a few fights in clubs back that up). What would be your suggestion?

>One well trained guy, with a decent rifle, seems like he could kill a lot of gang bangers and get away with it.

No.

1: combat arms soldiers train to fight as a team, not as an individual.

2: skill can not make up for withering small arms fire.

He isn't just going to will himself through a wall of fire from ten urban youths with Hi Points and Jimenez pistols. And if he's hit he doesn't have the huge support system behind him that he would have if he deployed to a combat zone where he can get medical treatment legitimately.

>Never got why people disliked them so much. They just take the basics from other martial arts, throw in cheap shots, and teach disarms against modern weapons.

They are usually taught in the civilian world by people who like to advertise them as "combat" systems who have no combat experience, and sometimes no military experience at all.

On top of that they don't usually train with aliveness.

You'll find some of the Krab Magoo places in South Africa (which everyone loves to use as their ward against criticism) are different. But that's South Africa, a country with a history of domestic military conflict and many white African military veterans with combat experience all the way back to Angola.

People imagine the actually good Krab Rangoo training places whenever they talk about it, so they can ignore the overwhelming amount of bullshit KM McDojos.
