What is this? A math Class?
Power = I'm standing and you're not!!

#91276 - 12/31/04 07:17 AM Re: Brute Force or Skillful Technique

Power + Speed + Preparation + Motivation divided by Opportunity = Fighting Ability

I was told there would be no math.

1st rule of SD. If you have to hit someone, hit them bloody hard.

"Brute" implies ignorance. How about appropriately applied power?

In a real fight, hit like crazy. It isn't sophisticated but it is the real world.

Try to think of it this way even Military trained soldiers are taught never to oppose strengh but redirect it. Power does add a advantage but if the power gets redirected even slighty that can get you killed in a real fight. I would have to say based on experiance that technique over strengh wins.LOL I like the welding thing though but who says the karateka isnt built like a brick shithouse. If you are a small person and dont have alot of weight behind your strikes, then utilize anatomy strike to the eyes throat groin etc. Throwing methods also are used to overcome strengh. In the real world people when they engage in real violence rarely go hand to hand anyway, in other words to a skilled attacker your strengh dont matter all people bleed the same when shot or knifed.

Skill everytime. Some areas of the body do not require powerful attacks. All techniques require skill to be delivered.

Strength, Size and Power is a good tool, and an important one. Just remember, that as we get older, the law of diminising returns and old age takes effect.

Carl Cestari is a fairly big guy and can blast a fist sized whole through anyone.
from his years of training, He is still very strong in his delivery. That is from skill.

In training in Tai Chi, Sigung Hsu Fun Yuen is not a big man, However, he can deliver incredible power from his frail frame to repuse even the biggest of his grand students. That is definitely skill, True kung fu!


Work both powerful execution and skillful execution.

A strong powerful person with good amrtial asts skill is a dangerous martial artist.

#91281 - 03/17/05 04:47 PM Re: Brute Force or Skillful Technique

I was told this. Strength=power and Speed=power. Its not just phyisics but, its logic. If u are stronger then u can hit hard. Just as if u throw a rock at 70mph it will hurt more than 2. )8^)

I am going to go with "brutal" force "skillfully" applied.

Why settle for one when you can have both?

#91283 - 03/17/05 05:19 PM Re: Brute Force or Skillful Technique

Hit hard with a good technique? They're both important. If you're flailing about throwing really hard punches everywhere you're never going to hit a trained opponent. But if you aren't physically adept at all then even if you do make contact it's not going to have much of an effect.
