Recommended Posts

Competitive or not?

Weight class?

I'm not currently active in MMA if truth be known I'm still getting ready for my first Muay Thai fight but would like to try MMA at some stage.

 

I'm imagining there will be quite a few of you

Amateur boxer. 1 - 0 (TKO), soon to be 2 - 0

MMA training (jits, wrestling, and muay thai) to start within 12 months, probably at London Shootfighters (they have a great training timetable for guys like me that finish work after 7). Needed in my head to be stronger, fitter, and ok in one discipline before moving into all of them.

Aims - to have at least 1 competitive MMA fight, and probably more boxing fights. Not to acheive anything really. Just because I want to say I did it, instead of being one of those people that always threatens to do something.

 

I imagine there are alot more guys with much better CV's than that here, but you al gotta start somewhere! lol

Guess it would be rude of me to ask someone a question and not answere your original question. I wrestled in Middle Schoo, Junior High and High School for 7 years at 135 lbs. I have taken BJJ, not consitant at it, but took classes while I was in the desert. Currently learning a little muy tai while im in Okinawa, but I am currently trying to get my wife to be ok with it, but its a wait and see game with a miltary life style.

Krav Maga is a "martial art" developed by the Israeli army if I'm not mistaken, considered to be really badass with lots of dirty things in it...

To answer the original question:

 

I have not trained or competed in MMA but trained a lot of different martial arts like Judo, Jujutsu, Karate, Taido and Kickboxing.

Correct, which is exactly why it has no place in modern MMA. Krav Maga was developed to allow you to prevail against an attacker long enough to allow you to run like bastard and escape the situation.

 

Exact words of my instructor :D

actually Krav Maga has roots in streetfighting - it was developed in what today is known as Slovakia. Developed by Jewish residents of Bratislava to defend against anti jewish mobs.

So, your wife is OK with you being in the Military, but maybe not MMA? Well, I guess we all have to draw the line somewhere.

What Branch are you in? You said you are in Okinawa. Cool, what is your

MOS?

aikido seems to be the word of the day on here. maybe one of you isn't lying but there is no way two guys out of the last three actually trained in it. i, personally, think that we have some high school virgins with pimples on their faces pretending to be fighters responding here.

7 years of wrestling at 170 and a few matches at 205. I used to train MMA for a year or so until I had my son. Working 2nd shift full time, training after work, and getting up every 4 hours in the night doesnt really work out too well in the whole body if u get my drift. lol. I would love to train again but theres really no gyms where I am located(Northwest Ohio). I would devote my time to BJJ if I could tho.

Ya know dave, I usually respect things you say on this forum. How many ppl also mentioned wrestling? Or Boxing? Because 2 ppl studied the same discipline we are liars? I take offence. You don't know me, or the other guy, what gives you the right to judge me. How could a guy normaly so intelligent make himself sound so ignorant is beyond me. Grow up.

 

One more thing, never once did I claim to be a fighter or study for years in Japan ect....But seriously enough that I passed a few tests, got a few belt levels up, and learned some fundamentals that help me speak intelligently on it. I should probably calm down now after all aikdo does mean way of harmonizing energy. peace

I've got hockey and bar fighting experience. also have an older brother and cousins that i compete with for the family submission wrestling title. Yup, no real MMA. Karate is the only martial art in my home town. That being said, I wouldn't f*** with me. I hit really hard.

wrestling and boxing aren't obscure activities like Aikido. maybe you do study it, i don't know. I kind of doubt that the other guy and you both study it. but if you both do, then good for you. i actually think it's a worthwhile endeavor to practise almost any martial art provided there is a real instructor involved and not a small town creepy weirdo that could get beat up by mom at a bar. I'm not really judging you either. I'm just kind of prodding people with a stick on here today. no real method to the madness.

Well I hope you checked out my link. And Aikido is based on a lot of the same principles of Judo. Had to ppl said the studied Judo would you have felt that was obscure. And I have my day of playful harrassment too, but no one enjoys being called a liar. BTW I hope you go back a page cuz I did edit my post.

I don't think Judo is obscure. I don't think that you are neccessarily a liar. I believe you. for what it's worth. like I said, I thik martial arts is a way of life for some, a bit of exercise for others and is it is usually a good thing for people to do. Going back and reading through the posts on here though, I'd give long odds that even half of the people on here have been even partially truthful. But half isn't bad. honestly, if there was an MMA center in my town I'd train too. as it stands, I'm relagated to being a fan.

my sensei is dutch, lived and studied in Japan over 10 years, and brought his Japanese wife and kids over to Netherlands for a job and started a lil "gym" by renting a grade school PE classroom out and give classes a couple of nights a week. I got interested as I worked in a company where their best sales guy was extremely high up in Aikido, I listened to him often, was intrigued by him, and I wanted to know more about it. Sensei went back to Japan for all the right family reasons, it was only 2 years, once a week, Im not even going to call it that I studied it, I was 21 and this is 15 years ago, but ok yes I am a virgin still I will give you that. :0)

I've never trained in any martial arts. Just picked up a form today to join The American Judo and Jiujitsu Federation, Inc. Starting training soon at the Medford Judo Academy. The oldest dojo in the AJJF. I'm very excited about it.
