Karate is garbage that will never hold it's own competitively. Judo is legit but doesn't compete with BJJ, which is hands down, reliably, consistently, the best martial art in a one-on-one fight. TKD is right there with Karate in being mostly only effective against people who can't fight. And while Kung fus only complicate what is usually more simple than that, the shaolin monks would still probably kick most of our asses.

Black belt in isshinryu checking in. Be me and have confidence in fighting skills that I never have to worry where I go cause I have the confidence to defend myself and others.

Is there anything more cringeworthy than making fun of someone for pursuing an enjoyable, healthy hobby?
>>
>>43577214
Depends on which Karate you're talking about.
Shotokan/point-sparring Karate, then yeah.
Kyokushin on the other hand, is known to produce some tough sons of bitches. MMA fighters even claim that Kyokushin guys tank hits like no other.

Kung-fu is too theoretical and the systems within kung-fu are quite different from each other yet completely focused in one aspect of an area: Mainly striking. It frowns on sparring and when they do spar, they just switch gears to Sanda. Which is really just Chinese Muay Thai with throws. Sanda isn't bad at all, but why not practice what you'd use in an altercation?

Why are you going to a children's gym? Most martial arts places are adult only. And even Still, studios that accept kids don't train them with the adults. They have separate classes and shouldn't be in classes with adults.

>>
>>43577686
I think BJJ is actually more in control of a situation. Which, if you're a bouncer or cop, is paramount.
If you're Judo throwing assailants to the ground, I'm pretty sure they could suffer hip or joint injuries from the impact. BJJ is more about the lock up, whereas Judo is definitely about the throw.

Most Judo places now focus on the Olympic sport anyway, which pretty much lacks ground game. If you're looking for complete Judo (with ground work), you'd probably need to find a school in Japan or someone who trained in Japan.

Do you know how often police men are in very close range with people that can potentially snap?
Checking their IDs, putting cuffs on, talking to people etc. They are ALWAYS exposed to people trying to pummel them down and are in great danger of losing control over their weapon in that scenario.
They HAVE to know how to control the situation when it goes to the ground and gets messy, otherwise they put themselves and everyone around at death risk.

Sambo is extremely hard to find outside of New York and California.

My main complaint with BJJ is the small emphasis on takedowns. Unless you train in a gym full of ex collegiate wrestlers you are shit out of luck. I've rolled with brown belts who couldn't even do basic takedowns and always resorted to pulling guard.

Thanks to the advent of mixed martial arts, we now know what is useful and what is mostly bullshit. Training a mixture of muay thai, boxing, brazilian jiu jitsu and wrestling is ideal. Combat sabo and sanda/sanshou are niche but very useful. Tae kwon do, judo, and full contact karate are passable at elite levels. Every other martial art is horseshit, flowy and extravagant movements that will get you fucked up by anyone who can throw a 1-2 or a simple double leg.

>designed for people in feudal armor
Retard confirmed. Karate is a martial art designed for individual self-defense, specifically when unarmed and generally when outnumbered.
"Art of empty hand" doesn't mean "lost my sword, must attack with fist". In fact, most of the martial arts listed as admirable ITT were made by and for short people in feudal (bamboo) armor who had lost their sword, which is why they are so offensively powerful and still admired today, so you're a double retard.

Tripling your retardation, karate's entire purpose is to fend off enemies more numerous than yourself until you can get an opening to run away.
>hurr durr a real man never runs durr deal with the threat before you
Imagine being the guy dumb enough to defend some meaningless bridge to the death vs multiple opponents because his pride wouldn't allow him to run and he ASSUMED his Kung Pow Was Strongest in a land full of fighters and brigands who are all training variants of that same Strongest Kung Pow.

Karate is THE martial art designed for the presence of severe risk of physical violence. For when shit is real, life and death, and you can't just get rid of the danger with one or two good kicks and joint locks.

Not that any of it means a damn thing now either way, when the Strongest Kung Pow is a handgun.

I'm just going to say this, Karate and other traditional arts at their roots are some hard hitting styles IF they are learned by real masters/practioners who have a passion for the art. Most eastern arts learned in America are a money laundering scheme and not worth shit, so my advice is if you want to git gud in those arts, go learn from the source or some master fresh off the boat from there.

>If they push it too far then yes, I will shoot them
so you shoot if they throw a punch? thats a bit overboard.
also 50 cent took 9 rounds at pretty much point blank and lived. unless your packing something like a .44 or or some other high caliber concealable weapon you probably only going to kill a weakling unless you are one damn good shot and know what to shoot for.

martial arts were invented when strong warriors (alpha chads) had to explain peasants and other betas how to fight. because alphas naturally and instinctively know how to punch and how to move your weight when grappled. betas have no instinct and strength to pull anything off so they need martial arts (a assortment of fighting techniques) to tell them how to behave and when.

if you are born chad you dont need instructions how to put someone down.

>Karate is garbage that will never hold it's own competitively
You do realize a lot of karate is being utilized in high level MMA right? "karate stance" is slowly becoming the new standard for high level strikers. MT is fast being discarded.

>judo is legit
Only if you're fighting untrained women

>BJJ, which is hands down, reliably, consistantly, the best martial art in a one-on-one fight
With rules, definitely. It's the one martial art that is a necessity.

In real life, I'm not continuing to go for the sub if someone is grabbing my balls or driving his thumb into my eye socket... Both of which are THE most effective defense against any submission.

If you have a sub and someone starts going for your balls or eye socket then just finish it. They can't squeeze or gouge if they are passed out and if you snap someones arm, shoulder or leg then they'll quickly forget about their kung fu bullshit. Or you could just mount them and pound the shit out of them. I hate how people think that when you hit the ground you forget how to punch, what the fuck are you on?

if someone does that you just crank up the force and either break his neck, arm w/e you're holding

You are the one talking about bringing a gun just in case you feel unsafe. Its the weakest of all options. I have more respect for people talking their way out of such a situation, or running or going to a fistfight than your solution.

And anyway, if one punch isnt enough, what is? Are you going to stand there and take three punches before you wipe out a gun and shoot somebody? Easier would be stopping the punch with an actual MA-move then doing something else.
>>
You faggots need to stop arguing about which martial art is best and just pick one from the grappling list and one from the striking list. Cross training is key. A boxer who does not have any ground game will get his ass handed to him by a wrestler with semi decent striking. And vice versa.
Pick one from each list and just do it. The more you think the less you train.

Been trained in Kyokushin for ten years, won regional competitions, here are some weaknesses: usually our training lacked direct combat practice with straight punches and kicks to the face - and you better be prepared for that in a no holds barred fight. Also our fighters are incredibly weak to any kind of grappling/throwing moves, so if you get caught in a grip and can't shake it off in half a sec - consider yourself done.

That's why our trainer did boxing and sambo on the side, and even before starting Kyokushin career. I world recommend complimenting your usual ideal sparrings with sambo/boxing elements as well. You should be at least able to subconsciously expect direct strikes to the head and be prepared to duck/block/move AND trained to break free of holds / safe landings when thrown.

>>43592903
Nah that's not it. It was much older and it was a real MMA match in an octagon for a match. Both guys were Asian and the Akido guy did more than one martial art.

After looking for it myself I can't find it but, I remember it not going so well for the Akido guy. In one round you could see him apply it and made his opponent go flying but, when he landed he had no position to get on top of him and the guy was more surprised that he got tossed than stunned from the throw. It can "work" but they don't seem to teach application of moves that put you on top of people to strike or submit someone.

I just heard about a story of a syrian refugee that was about to get stabbed by some bandits but he held them off because he was the best kickboxer in syria. Currently doing bjj and I want to do either kickboxing or muay thai. I’m worried that I’ll go to a meme gym though. I think just like bjj, sparring is a sign of a good gym, but I don’t know what else to look for.

Say what you want about kata dances and board breaking but karate blocks are fucking goat when incorporated into a fighter's training. It really throws muay thai/boxerfags for a loop when their straight goes flying and they open up those ribs just 'cause i touched my wrist with theirs.

I train bjj and we have judo black belts in our group, and it's funny. When we stand and they hold your collar and sleeve and you feel COMPLETELY helpless. They have total control of your body, it's ridiculous.
I've been thrown properly once and it was scary. In a split second you're slammed upside down on a mat in pain.

didnt mean to diss,BJJ can be badass as fuck,but im just saying,ive had a few street fights,they generally wont be 1 on 1 and a judo throw will make sure the other guy wont get up,as we both wery well know that lol
>>
>>43593718
No I agree, judo is legit.
I train bjj because my fighting "instinct" is grappling. Like when I thought of martial arts to do, I never felt any gravitation towards punching and kicking, but grappling felt more my style. Judo seems like a "train from child" thing, at least around here.

Yeah I think it's a cool martial art. I train gi now, but I almost think nogi players are more badass. I really like watching bigger guys roll. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvGu3GUe4YA

If they aren't in good shape for their age, they are an embarassment.

>>43578841
It's been watered down into dancing for the most part. Rarely pressure tested in a full contact environment. Full contact karate is as respectable as pretty much any kickboxing style. Those guys know what the fuck they're doing.

One of the more interesting hypotheses I've seen is that Karate was intended to make Okinawan folk wrestling more complete, by teaching people how to fight in a clinch before things go to the ground.

Random anon here. Guy on youtube named Ian Abernethy similar theory. The kata can be easily interpreted as being mostly knees and elbows from the clinch with some basic street trapping throw in in (hold his arms out if the way with one hand while punching his head with the other).

I read a translation of the Bubishi or whatever its called. Historical context: while karate was in its heyday, many Japanese and chinese soldiers amd merchants were living on the island. Elements of kung fu esque trapping and jujutsu are seen in the kata. Likely the islands martial visitors decided to share some knowledge with the locals, and vice versa.

Well, as a grown man 25 years old ive never been in a situation that couldn't be deescalated (sp?) Use your brain instead of being a fucking meathead. Works 99% of them time. The other 1% of the time being 210 dry pounds of muscle scares away those who think I'm an easy target.

Inb4 weird fantasies about fighting off packs of black dudes or white knighting for a damsel in distress

If a pack of dudes come at you, you're fucked, I don't care if your an MMA champ. Talking and how you present yourself will get you away from fights before they ever begin, if that doesn't work, you're fucked anyway cuz it's probably a pack of rowdy dicks who take out their sexual frustration on you

just look for a traditional judo. If it trains atemi (striking), nage-waza and ne-waza equally, than it's traditional and it's one of the most effective to know.

If it only focuses on nagewaza and has a shit ton of rules, than it's olympic oriented and it's shit, unless you wanna compete in judo.

I trained traditional judo for a few years and I remember we trained a lot of kicks (low kicks usually), strikes to the soft tissue areas, a lot of throws after counterattacks or defense against strikes, etc. Also, a lot of grips, sweeps and throws are illegal in olympic version, which i persoanally find stupid.
