    Yeah, "scientific" martial arts even gets used as a selling point, but by definition they aren't science. As someone that trains Gong Fu and Muay Thai, it irritates me when MT fans call it the...

    I got sciatica from an injury two years ago. It comes and goes still, sometimes it's real bad, sometimes it's not.
    I still spar hard every week and train around it. It's usually pretty bad the...

    Shaolin trains forms in the large frame. Like all Kung Fu systems that do this, these are exaggerated mechanics that aren't necessarily going to look the same in live sparring/fighting.

    I hate to comment on a thread that's starting off like this, especially after Plato got dragged into it...but I do agree with the assertion that conditioning is at the very heart of Kung Fu.

    All of the martial virtue stuff is to balance the practitioner out.
    Real training is desensitizing. In times when it was associated with real warfare it was even worse.

    He actually seems like a good guy when he gets to make his case. Maybe he needs to stick around.

    This is good because it's getting a lot of exposure. Both Cung Le and Yi Long offered to fight the guy and it's very doubtful he would fight either of them...and of course this is where everyone says...

    I've done plenty of sparring with good Kyokushin fighters. They say "the secrets are on the floor." I agree.

    I wouldn't waste the money on it. Get a 140 to 200 pound heavy bag or a Thai bag. You can develop all the power you need.

    Honestly, he probably couldn't get into his usual rhythm on account of Yi being so sloppy and erratic, probably put him off his game a bit.

    I would love to see that, although I don't think Cung would do as well in Thai rules as Sanda. It'd probably have to be a mixed rules event.

    Yeah, that's unfortunate. If China is ever going to be taken seriously in the fight game they have to get rid of the fixed fights, favoritism and crooked decisions.

    Absolutely. It is inherent to real training.

    Modern Kung Fu isn't about reclaiming that, though. There are largely two factions in the modern world, those trying to figure out what their place is...

    Martial arts should not be taught in public schools. It is impossible to do so without watering it down to the point of worthlessness. Far better off letting them play dodgeball than to have kids who...

    This is a skewed perspective you arrived at because that quality was lacking in your upbringing.
