3 months ago AIMAA 1 point Could you go into a little detail about your training in BJJ? Have you found that it contrasts a lot with taekwondo or are some things that carry over? What kind of sparring do you do? Do you feel your training has given you the skills to defend yourself in a typical Fistreet altercation? Are there any aspects of your training that you felt were particularly worthwhile? Were there any that you wish you didn't have to do? permalink source save-RES report give gold reply hide child comments 3 months ago 1 point I later found out that my experience was very similar to what Bruce Lee went through when he met face to face with grappling I couldn't believe how quickly I was beaten by someone with a black belt in Jujitsu I trained in Aiki-Jujitsu Daitu Ryu Pretty interesting stuff with joint manipulation and pressure points All of which is illegal in UFC and other cage fighting But it didn't used to be that way When the UFC first started my friends and I would attend the matches and even participate ourselves We wore full uniforms and I won a few matches with aikido moves that have since been deemed illegal I used to be deathly afraid to get into fights no More over I was afraid of getting mad When you train for so many years to strike the throat quickly or the eye you wonder what your reaction will be in a fight I'm in my 40's now so I don't think much on it In Aikido you have already lost a fight if you are forced to defend or fight In early ATA Taekwondo the sparring was super intense We didn't do point sparring We went all out If you didn't go home with bruises you weren't doing it right It was always easy to tell who took the earlier classes in the day or the night before From what I have seen it's just not that way anymore The best training I had was at a tradiitonal Aikido school By traditional I mean in a real Japanese dojo Whether it was 10 degrees outside or 110 degrees it didn't matter We trained in full uniform hakama and all There I learned staff fighting and katana fighting The ebb and flow of Aikido changed the way I think about martial arts Also we sparred traditionally so it was always the instructor Daniel Linden pointing to two or more people and then telling them to kumite and it was rough During my training an average month resulted in a broken nose broken ribs broken fingers torn ligaments scraps scratches bumps lumps and of course bruises It was by far my favorite training I only left it because I moved out of state The meditative aspects of Aikido probably affected me the most I still use the techniques daily to relax deal with stress etc With simple meditation we were taught to instantly bring down the heart rate breathing and just to relax I wish more people knew about that permalink source saved-RES parent report give gold reply AIMAA 1 point 3 months ago In early ATA Taekwondo the sparring was super intense We didn't do point sparring We went all out If you didn't go home with bruises you weren't doing it right It was ways easy to tell who took the earlier cl asses in the day or the night before From what I have seen it's just not that way anymore That's a real shame Modern taekwondo really lacks that combativeness Just out of interest did you advance beyond white belt in BJJ or was there a reason that you favoured Daito Ryu over it? permalink source save saved-RES parent report give gold reply S 0 points 3 months ago In the Gracie system I have a brown or purple belt Honestly I forget which I was taking three different art forms at that time Taekwondo lacks combativeness because of risk of suing Also parents get super pissed when little Tommy comes home with a black eye Daito Ryu was just the first form of grappling I learned It comes from the earliest organized form of martial arts in the world in Japan I was created as all of Japanese martial arts as we know it today by a Japanese physician who wanted to know more about the human body He dissected a lot of dead people to learn about pressure points joint manipulation etc Unlike any other martial art in Daito Ryu every move ends in a kill move Much of that was thrown out by the people that first created and made jujitsu popular The things I could show modern grapplers They'd shit themsevles But it's all illegal in tournaments Pretty cool stuff though Many of the moves result in an end move that mean a simultaneous broken hand broken arm broken collarbone etc It's theorized that multiple fractuers would send the person into instant shock thus either incapacitating them or instantly killing them Either way each and every move meant immediate incapacitation either way It's really an incredible a form but very very risky and violent permalink source save saved-RES parent report give gold reply 4 C-1 Larfox a 2 points 2 days ago Who did you receive your brown belt in BJJ from and what year was this?
