Martial arts thread Anonymous Comrade 06/05/2020 (Fri) 22:46:18 No. 10243
Comrades let's have a thread for martial arts, combat sports and self defense. Striking, grappling, all styles welcome (except fake ass shit). Let's talk about training, techniques, fights, fighters, etc. Here's a fun fact: One of the many achievements of the soviets was founding their own combat system, sambo, which proved to be extremely effective and is still widely practiced today. Also, Judo orange belt here (AMA if you want)
Excellent Idea my good chap. What use is fitness without being able to make use of it?
>>10244 Indeed, the combination of exercising, growing stronger and learning how to fight is one of the reasons I love martial arts
Anyone have advice on increasing speed and endurance in fights?
>>10902 For endurance practice your forms while holding weights
Any one hit that Jiu Jiu?
is it dumb to want to start martial arts off in something with little real sparring ?
>>10958 It's not bad at all. I think sparring is the real deal, but it's better than not doing anything.
>>10902 Muscle memory is essential for building up speed, and it requires practicing something over and over again. I trained with an olympic judoka once, and his throws were so incredibly fast I was baffled. Why is this? Simply because these guys practice each throw thousands and thousands of times. Their bodies are so used they go into cruise control and do it automatically. This is what muscle memory is all about. The same concept applies in boxing and other martial arts and many other things.

So what exactly is so Brazilian about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
>>11039 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a variant of Kosen Judo (which is a variant of Judo, and Judo is itself a reform of "traditional" japanese Jiu-Jitsu) invented in Brazil by Mitsuyo Maeda (a japanese man who came to South America to spread Kosen Judo, but he settled with with the Gracie family, a brazilian family with scottish ancestry). Maeda with the Gracies changed Kosen Judo to a new form of Judo/Jiu-Jitsu then spread their new martial art all over of Brazil, the "Gracie Jiu-Jutsu" but then other brazilian dojos had appropriate for themselves Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (like Machado) and then rename it "Brazilian Jiu-Jutsu".
