hand to hand combat

Discussion in 'Band of Glockers' started by theTactician, Oct 12, 2007.

  1. Aside from pistol shooting and competing in practical shooting competitions, are you guys training in hand to hand combat as well?
    what martial art are you into?:)
    I believe that being adept in both shooting and hand to hand combat is essential in being complete when it comes to self-defense. There are times when your pistol is not around and you need to do some striking and some grappling.
    I therefore began to study and learn the art of Gracie jiujitsu which helped me in so many ways like losing weight, being fit, improve my stamina even when im already old (34), and keeps me focused in everything i do. Its an exciting sport and highly technical.

    I started back in 94 with Royce Gracie but found out that sport jiujitsu is not MMA Mixed martial arts. In order to be complete I started Thai boxing wrestling and jiujitsu no Gi with strikes. I have been teaching MMA for 7 years now and hold a 2nd degree Black belt in jiujitsu. I have worked with Chris Brennan Fransisco Bueno and have coached a few of the Tokyo Sabers Antonio MC Gee Savant Young Tracy Hess and have prepped Quinton Jackson Brett Cooper and allot of others that are not as well known.

    My knowledge is at world class level and have worked with some of the best in the world.

    If you not learning all the Arts you have a hole in your game period. No art is the best but all arts combined is the most effective way to go.

    Brazilian Jiu jitsu. Good exercise and is very technical. You can train very hard without getting any major injuries. You can tap or let it snap! I'd rather tap..:)

    MMA is one art it takes the most effective techniques from all and makes one art. Look for a jiujitsu school That teaches MMA in a real street fight you don't want to end up on the ground.

    So if I had to pick one are it would take Muay Thai.

    I'm curious to know how much an MMA instructor makes these days from teaching. I know how much the stars make since it's on the internet.

    Question to the MMA guys,

    Have you really tried it on the streets, against a punk used to brawling all their lives??

    Just curious, no offense meant by the question. Just want to know if they got to apply their techniques or ended up with trading punches.

    As for me, SANG-SU-WI ang natutunan ko,

    Sang sutsot uwi. Si mrs ang sensei.

    Do ninjas make more money than MMA instructors ? Or do they spend their lives looking for ninja type treasure to make a living ?

    Ninjas are poor, they need 3G's to survive (guns, gears, gadgets). =P
