When it comes to Jujitsu throwing or Martial arts punching I will always take karate punching.
I actually know this is likely to ruffle a few feathers, but let me state my case.
Back in the sixties and seventies there weren’t many organizations, no protective gear, no mothers worrying as they viewed their seven year old learn Karate. There are so few schools that we acquired to travel fifty a long way to class, and the sole people I trained with were VERY dedicated.
Dedicated people who did not subscribe because they got seen a Bruce Shelter movie (Bruce Lee has not been around after i commenced Martial arts, he was yet to come), but because something inside them was driving a car them.
Over the next few years protective items was introduced, chain stores started up, people who studied for a few of years were marketed and went off to start out their own schools, and the worth of Martial arts sank.
But before that happened I saw people do something that folks today simply cannot do.
Can easily you break a position brick with a 50 percent fist? How about adhering a hole in a board with an one finger? What about taking a full power kick to the groin?
Might be found are almost unheard of today.
And I am not merely a well used fuddy duddy hearkening to the ‘good, old times. ‘ The things I actually speak of happened, were verifiable, and the degree of Martial arts was much higher.
Here is the interesting thing: people can do more again flips and fancy leg techinques today. People can do more difficult forms.
Yet they are showing the fat, and the real meat hasn’t even recently been cooked.
Flash forward… the Ultimate Fighting Championship is the most popular market in the world. Persons crowd into MMA colleges so they can earth and pound, and traditional karate, and Kung Venne and many other disciplines, are fairly well dismissed, or taught to children in large chains, which merely exacerbates the problem.
Yet I have never seen anybody step into the ring and do the sort of Karate punch We were trained in. I’ve never seen anybody who could punch an supply and break a bone with perfect focus and a calm mind.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS, the thing is, is using boxing.
Many claim that Martial arts punches are very stylistic, won’t work. But none of them of the people who say such thing trained when these Karate would work, when students were trained until they could make Karate work, and only the dedicated made it.
