Savate teaches me to be more light on my feet and to throw some quick but painfully accurate kicks. we aim for things like kidneys, kneecaps, calfs, and other places that'd be damaging.

I haven't done any grappling or jiujitsu though. Jun Fan teaches me the self-defence i need, but i'd like to do jiujitsu. The guys that know their shit are amazing.
jiujitsu iz cool,but I always wonder.The people that only know jiujitsu.What do they do when they get attacked by more than one person,3,4,5 mothafuckas?

I've studied Tae Kwon Do, Aki- Jiujitsu, Tang Soo Do & Judo..
To me Tang Soo Do (which I still train in) has been overall the most benificial.

Pai Mai told Beatrix that her arm belonged to him.

If Pai Mai tells you your booty hole belongs to him, you better run.

Look out for schools that have long term (1yr+ ) contracts for new students. Look out for unnecessary showmanship. If the place and people don't feel right to you, leave it alone. Look out for teachers who beat people up and degradate them for no real reason. Word of mouth is somewhat a good reference. Look for combination arts or very solid systems. There're a lot more things that you can be on the look out for but these hit my head first. If you know yourself then you'll know what you want and need.

In my first Wing Chun training session we learned how to kill a person w/Judo/Jujitsu's traditional lunge attack. That's a good question though. Bruce Lee addressed how to defend people from a sitting position against a wall in his Bruce Lee's Fighting Method series book, which he got from his original artform.

When a BJJ guy gets jumped by a mob, he does what every sensible fighter does; he pulls a gun or hauls ass.

I couldn't feel BJJ. I think it should have been left as it was...a smaller compnent of a more complete art.

Bloody brazilians....

Nah man, you gotta specialize. JJJ, is a jack of all trades, master of none. They're not expert strikers to the caliber of muay thai or any of the main striking arts, nor are they grapplers on level with BJJ.

Yeah! My old art Soo Bahk Do and Tang Soo Do both originate from the same martial philosophy of Moo Duk Kwan.

Did you know Chuck Norris does Tang Soo Do?

I don't necessarily know what JJJ practitioners are like, and I agree that every will specialise....they will tend toward their own favourite techniques.

I just believe training to stop someone with strikes can be done.

I think you should be trained for all types of fighting though. But I know what you mean by the master of none...the style I do is really only 5 basic strikes...then you learn to vary them.

I was actually saying that they DON'T specialize. Within a dedicated system like BJJ, you've got millions of people studying ONE THING. The knowledge stacks. With JJJ, each guy could be doing anything.

I agree. I just believe it should be done with a dedicated striking system.

Yo Subtle, you said earlier that you didn't feel Shaolin Style could take you to the level that you wanted to go. Could you tell me what you thought was missing from it?

I have nothing against Xing Yi, because it reminds me of Ba Gua and I love how calm and deadly they both are, just asking.
