that is the absolutely appropriate resonse!

though in his defence, weeks where I get less than 10hrs training in, I can be a bit jumpy too.

now I have to have aggression beaten out of me on a regular basis.

I bet you never get "beatch slap some random girl in the face for no reason jumpy"

Whether you agree with the response or not, this vid show well what happens when someone who really has the will and skill flips the switch. There was no talking. No pushing or arguing. Just put down the threat to your spouse or loved one. Like a bear.
Good vid post, Tim. Boxing is a core skill that should be appreciated by all.

That is a heartwarming video, no doubt. But it doesnt show a fight it shows a single exchange, and it is good example of the biggest problem of pure sport training: it is not oriented to finishing real conflict. Sport training is great for basic attributes and skills, but if these skills are never put into a self-defense frame than you are left with the habit of establishing sporting dominance and then walking away. Which leaves your opponent in a position to take your skillset into account and then decide for themselves whether to either walk away or else take the conflict into some other format where they figure they can dominate.

but i always thought of Boxing as the one where you try to render the guy unconscious with punches to the face.

and I think of Judo/BJJ as the ones where you slam the guy on the ground, and then you break something or make them go to sleep.

Tae kwon do, i get more where your coming from. Freestyle wrestling, yeah, establishing a pin on the guys that accidently slapped your girlfriend not really that useful... but positional dominance... priceless.

Would the 'exchange' have gone differently if either of the two men who were beaten had trained in sport fighting the the past?

   By Elliot on Monday, October 09, 2006 - 07:20 pm: Edit Post

Doc is right,

could you imagine what would have happened to those two thugs if the boxer dude knew dim mak or some dragon style!

Those dudes were lucky that guy only knew his ring boxing.

   By Jason M. Struck on Tuesday, October 10, 2006 - 09:37 am: Edit Post

there's a reason that Dim Mak is a secret, only to be revealed to pimply ass dungeon-masters who beg (pay/show up) long enough!

I wish you could see the rest of the fight, I'm sure it was just more of the same, but still. It would be fun to see the girl mace those guys.
