Hmmm, charging bull, what would a Matidor do?
Did I spell Matidor right?

Why do you keep writing Bonzai at the bottom of your posts.
Are you trying to root them or something?

Do you mean Bonsai (little bitty tree) or Banzai the Japanese cheer meaning (may you live 1000 years)?

Does he lean when he charges in? If he does try to take advantage of that.

Just a note Rocky Marciano was 5'11'' and only 180 lbs and he knocked a bunch of guys out. Michael Spinks was 6' 195 whan he beat Larry Holmes in a 15 round fight. He tried to bulk up against Tyson and got whacked. Endurance and quickness will always beat size. A charging Bull will expend a bunch of energy in his charge. I was also thinking Hypothetically if a bull was charging and you killed him with one punch wouldn't his momentum carry him foreward and crush you anyway. I don't know about other places but I have never seen a full grown bull much under a ton. Mabey they come smaller in Japan.

I like the way you think, WADO. No doubt, you will never fall prey to the mythology that runs rampant in our community.

my sensei was talking with suzuki sensei once about the bull that oyama killed,he said yes he did kill the bull,but it was a very old bull,i think the asian people in general have different thoughts on animals,we might think things cruel that they dont,personaly i dont like cruelty to animals it says a lot about the state of your country. i read the big oyama book ,and i think as you progress you realise what a lot of it is about and what can be acheived through regular dilligent training,one thought i had was that i read somewhere bulls legs at the back are longer than there front ones,so run down hill away from the bull and it will fall over,i havent tested this theory,but its in the back of my mind if the situation arises. the only thing i can think of when fighting a guy bigger or as big as you is take the fingers and dont use power against power, also use your head,or run away,a nd live to fight another day,so there you go pick that to bits [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]

i once killed a bull with a swing kick to its nuts. then i ate its heart to make me strong like bull.
i kept its skin as a winter coat and memento.
if you dont believe me, ask your mom.

getting back to the topic in witch this was all started by, i have a friend i spar against. he is 220lbs, and im olny 160lbs. he uses an axe, i use a katana (both are wood, to ease concern)and when he charges at me, i just duck around him and hit him once from behind. but, im not really sure on what to do in other MA's that do not use weapons. i just needed to add in my 2 cents. btw, JohnL, you seem really pissed off about something. might i suggest meditation?
