    • Why Take up Martial Arts - Waste time!


Recommended Posts

I started off wondering TKD vs. Karate vs. Judo (who will win?) I was just curious and wanted to gauge what the PERCEPTION of people (NOT ACTUAL COMPARISON - HARD TO COMPARE...TOOO MANY VARIABLES).. and there can be NO fair comparison....

bouncefire:

 

Its just that I remember there was this fighting show and they got all kinds of fighting style to come in and I think the Thai Boxer won in the end...

 

My analysis is (I may be totally wrong).

TKD - Lots of leg (long distance ok)

Karate - More hands (short distance combat)

Judo - Body to Body combat.

 

Again you have the various Silat styles,Kung Fu, Jeet Kun Do, Ju Jitsu ( (all of which I have not included cos I have very little knowledge of it).

 

Then again...it will depend on the individual fighters...

 

Hmm..maybe I shouldn't even ask this question.... :cry: ::

 

hence I've changed my topic to..What do you want to Learn if given the opportunity?

p.s. to all martial arts practitioners.

 

If I have not included your style or if you feel offended by the poll of my comments - my apologies .. it is not intentional.

This is not meant for comparison...just to get idea of what goes on in the reader's minds

 

No offence/malice/prejudice/bias meant ....

I personally had sparring sessions with a Karate Club b4, TKD vs Karate many years ago. It was a friendly session, where we would spar with each other, no prizes though, it's more for experience and exposure than anything else.

 

For TKD vs Karate, TKD is stronger when at a distance. The problem for Karate (as wat I experience from the sparring sessions), is that, they always want to get near you. So from the start, the opponent will almost always rush in to you, to get near you. This is not possible most of the time, as long as the TKD exponent can use the "checking" kick, directly kicking their ribs area. After a few times, the Karate exponent would feel the pain and the ribs area will give way.

 

In another match (obviously, they have learnt from the previous experience), Karate exponent no longer rushes in, but approached in cautiously. Therefore, use of checking kick is reduced. Opponent knows where to protect, closes in and next thing I know, I'm on the floor. :lol:

 

In a close combat situation, Karate exponents response is much faster and quicker. They are good at sweeping you off the floor, grabbing and throwing during sparring. TKD simply do not use these attacks during sparring sessions and competitions. TKD exponents are "used to" not punching the face (as per competion rules, both national & international), while it is not forbidden in Karate in sparring.

 

Imagine the huge protest from us (TKD), when one of our guys is being punched in the face repeatly. :lol:

 

Overall, I feel, this is a good session, and good experience and exposure for everyone (both TKD & Karate). Surely, I would like to have more sessions like these, perhaps with other styles of martial arts, for exposure.

 

Just some of my experience to share with you.

 

 

Cheers!

i would consider muay thai to be one of the more agressive martial art. seen plenty of videos of muay thai practitioners winning others from various martial arts. no offence intended.

Thai kickboxing is more on the hardest part of the body, mainly, elbow and knees, they trained alot on this attacking parts and one hit from a trained thai kickboxer is no joke, they can break afew ribs A blow from the elbow to the face can make you see stars....hehee:cheeky:

muay thai made a lot of other martial arts practitioners KO. ultimate ownage.

 

 

but of course, there are still cases where muay thai got owned by other martial arts.

does the general public consider unarmed combat skills as martial arts. there r several schools in different countries, example: 'Line' which is developed in USA.

ok. got your question.

 

if you're refering to the general public in singapore, i would say they do not consider unarmed combat skills as martial arts. over here in singapore, martial arts are meant for non-combat purposes. there are no (or very few) martial arts here in singapore that will teach you to fight people. when people talk about martial arts, names like TKD, judo, karate will come up. do correct me if i'm wrong.

jujitsu or aiki jitsu (grappling), they are more effective and deadly.. watched some ultimate fighting championship vidz and had seen most fighters uses grappling as part of their techniques..
