    Most all martial arts overlap.

    Concerning symmetry, I try to work the punching bag, for example, with my weaker side (my left jab works, but my right jab is like 5 times stronger, it seems).

    My coach always said "learn to punch with your weaker side and your stronger side is stronger."

    Thing about most "natural" fights (fights I believe cagefighting does a decent job at simulating with minimal risk of death-actually think UFC has zero deaths compared to boxing) is that they end up on the ground. That's why wrestling and jiu jitsu are in my top two.

    I've rolled with many top level wrestlers that knew little of JJ, and although they could take me down quite easily, once there, they were clueless. Not a bash against wrestling, just those rules have no bearing on JJ.

    I believe Japanese Jiu Jitsu utilizes a lot of standing wrist locks. MUCH of BJJ is like shoulder locks, chokes, larger joint cranks (sooooo many are simply devastating, you can't even practice leg locks like a heel hook in most schools without being a blue belt, which can take up to 5 years depending on your dedication. too many ACL tears).
    nice. It's true. Even win basketball, shooting left handed layups makes you better at right handed layups. It's a phenomena of the brain. You could practice your weak side all day without touching your strong side and your strong side will still get better. If I ever go deeper into mma I'll take up BJJ.

    Thanks.

    It's a good one. I don't like the Gi, but whatever.

    For the record, I couldn't find anything about Anderson Silva doing Wing Chung, or Jeet Kun Do. That aside, he is still a freak. Fuckin' assassin.

    his level of wing chung is probably the same as someone taking BJJ for one month...what I meant to say is that he understands the principles behind it and is a big fan of bruce's philosophy and bruce in general.



    Even still I've seen him practicing his own made up martial arts on a wooden dummy....which is kind of funny on one hand, but on the other hand kind of astonishing and impressive.

    Personality wise, not really into that. It turns me on sorta, but I recognize that I would connect with a really reeeeeally low number of them. As such it ends up being a conscious put-off.

    Physically though? Yep, kiiiinda really into that (sans the fighting part)...

    Aw, @riva and @johnnyyukon I will take you both out with a smile and a hair barrette. Just kidding. (I wouldn't use the barrette.)

    Seriously, I don't do MMA.

    Never have, but I do let the MMA guys train in my building.

    I told them I wouldn't hurt them so long as they didn't break anything.

    So far they have been very cooperative.

    Hey, I like that name!

    I am glad you started a thread as a place to talk about martial arts.

    I think there was one here once upon a time but a dragon ate it....or something like that.

    Martial arts are so super.

    Bruce Lee would lose a UFC match in his weight class. Unless, I wonder, if he had time to train..........
