Yes, I am aware of that.

What is your mma setting like?





Very good. In a sports centre now. Put out the mats,
Quote:


you spar often?




We roll a fair bit. Do stand up grappling a fair bit.
Combine the two a fair bit.
Dont go to town on the striking/ kicking to much as most have day jobs.

What are your rules/limitations?



Tapping out, normal MMA techniques, nothing dodgy.

No thanks. I'm not playing your game.





If your not playing the game then why are you asking?
Brian sit back take some time to heal then train some more.
Spend the time watching judo. Work your forearms and upper body on the weights.

Time better spent training

Jude

Currently I train a wall makiwara for conditioning, and fun. I enjoy hitting things, I cant have a heavy bag hanging in my living room anymore so its convenient. I also dont hit it nearly as hard as traditional makiwara.

I can say I continued to receive the same benefits from a heavy bag, but my initial technique was fostered on a makiwara which was much less forgiving of mistakes.

I really really really enjoy makiwara training. And think its extremely effective.







Good man excellent

Yeah well. Gives them something to do while they are sitting around on the computer. Anyway speak soon just watching Hagler boxing.

There is a thought?
Maybe I should ask them how they would describe Haglers defence? See if they know anything about boxing?

This thread is amazing. It's become so splintered from the original topic that it barely has anything left to do with it.

The thread was, MMA as Self-Defense. Now we're discussing makiwara training. That's not a bad topic by itself, so why include it in an MMA discussion?

And where are the mods of this forum? Isn't it the job of the mods to steer this topic back on course or to shut it down once it's veered so far away? Is that one of the primary reasons why forums like this begin to blow?

Are you volunteering to restore order?

Where are the mods of alot of topics here?

I only see two or three mods doing any moderating at all! Much less admin, doh!!

But, without help and support from the site owner,whatcha gonna do?

Its pretty relevant. It came by way of discussing gloved punching VS non gloved punching. Which weighs on the minds of some in regards to MMA and self defense applicability I guess.

Seiken,

I realize the relevancy. Perhaps I'm just bitching and complaining. I'm not always right about things, but is this thread progressing thought here or just stumbling about blindly? Maybe that's the best route, don't know. Just questioning.
