    If the opponent using katana you would minus a leg. But if say it a master, he should already know how to handling the risk of his art.

Indonesia teach Pencak Silat to it's army and Thailand is Muathai). If I'm not mistaken, US SWAT members and UK SAS learn this... in fact, this moves is popularized during WW2 when SAS used this moves on the Nazi.

    This is not a pure martial arts and more mix-and-match martial arts. The main moves of this martial art is disarmament of enemy's weapons, throw them/incapacitate them in some way, could also be used in conjunction of other arms (usually knifes). Of course you do this only when you don't have weapons to fight (not like MGS where you do this instead of relying on firearms).

    This martial arts is not taught to civilian, and there's one book that teach about this, get pulled off no long after the release. And that book become training book for SWAT/military personnel.

    I think there's an article about this on Wikipedia.

    Point taken, but that was a kickboxer vs capoeira and also that was a movie production scene.



    "Capoeira" fighter who isn't using capoeira footwork. The kick was legit though. :P

    I do Muay Thai and No-gi Jiu Jitsu.
    Really, more of a grappler than I am a kickboxer though.

    I feel that for women, no-gi jiu jitsu/submission grappling is the best form of self defense. I mean, I'm 5' tall and only about 103lbs, if a guy wants me on the ground I'm going to end up on the ground. However, I know how to get the f-ck away, even if they guys 100lbs larger than I am (most of my training partners are even more than that ;-; ). Despite this, most women I try to convince to at least TRY it, are too grossed out by the positions and being on the ground wrestling with another person, and/or they're afraid of getting hurt. Both are completely ridiculous. When you're grappling, you don't really think about the contact (at least I don't), and trust me, I'm a vicious little biatch, when I'm trying to break your arm you're more concerned with defending yourself. As for the second part, while I have gotten pretty injured from grappling, when you're not training at competition level the most you'll get is a couple bruises now and then. [/rant]

    BRAG TIME: My bf is 4-0 in MMA right now, he's pretty awesome.

    But yeah, martial arts are rad.

    Jiu jitsu is great for self defense, until you see that if someone attack you in the street is not going to be alone.

    In that sense, why bother learning self defense at all?
    Even if I was a BEASTLY kickboxer, or whatever MA you want, if theres multiple people I'd be toast.

    I feel like there are three types of women - when unarmed and threatened, they either try to run away or:

    (1) Freeze up
    (2) Start kicking and screaming
    (3) Claw madly at their assailant like a rabid monkey

    Personally I have the most respect for women in category (3). Or maybe that's just because I'm male.

    Edit: Added unarmed. Personally I respect the lady who pulls out her handgun and casually fires into her assailant's guts the most.

    Here's a video of different Karate styles which are all really similar to each other. I think the style I did is in there somewhere.

    I did Goju-ryu btw.
