but what do you guys think is the best method for lets say taking someone down in a fight. (example)
i think fights are bad and should be avoided at all costs, but im just curious as to what you guiys think, thanks.
Single or double leg takedown. Or just hit them in the face..lol.
I like to thrust my open hand like I'm gonna grab their throat, but just thrust it into the throat without grabbing them.. Most cops and MP's do that to subdue someone real quick..
Either that, or shoot in for the knees and apply a choke or heel hook..
Too many variables for one difinitive answer. I like joint locks/arm bars personally as I can obtain and maintain control of my opponent and either take him completly to the ground or keep him partially upright to act as a shield against multiple attackers. (After softening them up of course. Perhaps an eye strike, groin kick, ear slap, etc.) An upper fake hook as I twist into a low downward round kick targeting the side of the knee can be quite effective as well. Personally, I would predominately only be fighting for self defense and I would match force with the apparent intent of the would be assailant. You strike at my throat and I am going to assume you mean me grave harm. Expect deadly blows reciprocated ad hoc. You have a knife, forget about it, dead man walking.
Chances are, if you are asking this question, any attempt to take someone down who has a fair amount of training may not end up in your favor.
The "Crane" kick from the Karate Kid
Hit 'em in the sack
Front kick to a thai clinch and rain knees till they slip into sweet unconsciousness.
Watch Bass Rutten's Leathal Street Fighting video "everyone underestimates the kick to the balls" lol. If it's a street fight then by all means kick em in the balls first then proceed with a punch preferably as was mentioned earlier to the throat.
People underestimate a punch to the gut... I've "seen" many a man go down with a punch to the stomach. Likely they have a good chin and are not expecting it, with the wind knocked out of them they hunch over pretty easy.
I call it the Houdini.
Depends on the person and how they measure up to my size. In all honesty if you go into a fight looking for one particular take down and don't get it off you're screwed. The best bet is to avoid them all together. If you have to fight then it's best to learn to protect yourself over taking someone down.
a good swift kick in the nyuts will take care of someone.
ADVANCED MUSCLE SCIENCE STRONGEST ON THE MARKET
kicking in a street fight wouldnt look girly?
and you guys are definately more fun than M and F guys lol.
BTW what do you guys take (boxing, etc)
Shoot-style wrestling, BJJ and Wu-Shu, all informal training.. Took TKD for 4 months, boring and they wanted me to do tournaments all the time since I was the biggest in the class..
Kajukenbo (mix of Karate, Judo, JiuJistu, Kenpo and Gung Fu)
Grappling (Similar to BJJ)
my friend (s) are going to start sparring (boxing)

Yeah you sound pretty stupid.

16 oz gloves are standard boxing size and wraps are good to use for wrist and hand stability. One of the reasons Fedor Emelianenko has broken his hand several times is because he does not wrap his hands.
ok so 16 OZ gloves, wrist wraps.
is that it for safety or shoulde we wear mouthguards
and what size wrist wraps should i buy for the best wrist and hand protection.
Definitely wear a mouthguard; it will help to lessen the impact on your head and so you don't have as many cuts in your mouth.Originally Posted by khan8
