Actually this reminds me of the time I fought Brock Lesner and Randy Coture. They were going to kill me because I told everyone they were bumming each other.

I didn't want to use Hadourken but I had no choice, they would have been much better off if they just spread a rumour about me instead.

Did you know that Randy and Brock used to be male face models? Yeah that's right those two were really really handsome. After fighting me they now look as you see them today.

Randy held me in a full nelson so that Brock could pound me into slush. While my hands were above my head I began to gather my Ki. My Hadourken ball was hot and it burnt the top of Randys head and as he let me go I let my Hadourken loose and it broke Brocks face. I twisted around and hit Randy with a Shoryuken upper cut.

While they were both out to it on the ground I pounded their faces in so that they would remember me every time they looked into a mirror.

@alavanka:

Some might think I am ugly. I put a film of myself on real life pics thread. I'm holding the light sabres I used to kick the whole sky walker family's asses.

The 3 Biggest Myths Martial Arts Students are Often Taught

1) Myth: Size and strength don't matter, technique is all that matters.

Reality: Of course they do. I will agree that technique and skill matter more, but some people seem to be under the insane myth that size and strength advantages don't matter if your opponent is more skilled than you. After all, if this were true, then martial artists would be able to beat bears or tigers, and no one is dumb enough to believe they could.

2) Myth: The harder and more difficult the technique is, the better it is.

Reality: The simplest techniques (front kick to the groin, jab-cross combo to the face, etc.) are often the best. To quote Bruce Lee "I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times."

3) Myth: Most fights go to the ground.

Reality: No, the guy who gets knocked out usually falls to the ground, but no, most fights do not end up being ground fights. This seems to be a common myth among ground fighting martial arts like BJJ (not that I'm bashing BJJ, I'm just saying that they sometimes perpetuate this myth). Most fights start standing and continue that way until someone gets knocked out, this whole "most fights go the ground" saying is just ridiculous.

@mrmonster: I agree with all of those statements, but I thought most people agreed that most fights end up in a clinch and then maybe on the ground from there if they go on for long enough?

Honestly, who knows the statistics when it comes to untrained people? It honestly doesn't matter if most street fights end up standing or on the ground.

Against a skilled opponent, they're going to keep poking at you until they find a hole in your game. If your jiujitsu or wrestling sucks, they're just going to the ground an exploit it. That alone should be incentive enough to work on grappling.

Not specifically martial arts related, but worth watching and thinking about nonetheless.

Yes, I know, I know... Scott Adkins would kick Bruce Lee's ass. You don't have to remind me.

If you love martial arts, I'd highly recommend watching Karate Combat, it's so good.

@mrmonster: imo it's really not that good. The whole "no short hook and no low kick" rule kinda sucks. I mean any boxer with a good left hook would be considered the greatest karateka of all time if they entered this. Plus the ground and pound rule and pit is just awkward.

Kudo is a better version of full contact Karate.

Kudo is crap compared to this version of full contact Karate.

Interesting piece of advice from a sports psychologist. Obviously you shouldn't make this a regular habit, but as something you do a few times a year, maybe when you're training for a tournament, this might be good.

Could someone tell me if securing someones wrist or hand & throwing 100% of ones body weight into the back of the elbow in order to break it outright rather than attempting a submission hold legal in the ufc or any other MMA venue?
