Thread: I have an idea!

    I have an idea!

    Hey, what would happen if I called my style "Kung Fu" and when I fought I took people to the ground, mounted, pounded, etc.
    I could get a novice BJJ player with a gi choke or a ude garami and say I beat him with Kung Fu!
    :D We've all seen the movies, I can just say it's a long lost "style" of Kung Fu. :)

    .......... Okay maybe not. :(
    Sorry, very immersed with Taiwanese friends right now :D

    BJJ/Judo/whatever can be kung fu too :)

    Just don't open a school that teaches BJJ/Judo/whatever and call it Shaolin<insert name here> to cash in on the Shaolin name. :D

    You're fu(king up my chi

    Everyone knows that Shaolin is a joke. I wouldn't use the name Shaolin in a school. It would attract a bunch of people who think chinese people who meditate all day are good fighters.

    Ryu. I wouldn't do that. If it's not kung fu then don't call it that. If you choke them out then they will get a high opinion of kung fu even though kung fu sucks.

    Oh, it has been done before Ryu, believe me. Hell, I see a lot of kung fu fighters that look suspiciously like muay thai/wrestling as well :D

    Dragon Raze. When i fought shaolin Tiger he did roundhouses to my thigh just like a muy thai guy. And he shot in for a double leg takedown just like a freestyle wrestler. He does san shou.

    Is it really kung fu? It depends on your definition of kung fu. If your definition of kung fu is "arts that are indiginous to china" then san shou is not kung fu. But if your definition of Kung fu is "any fighting techniques even from muy thai and free style wrestling" then i guess you can consider san shou to be kung fu.

    Muy thai is the grand daddy of all the BOXING styles whether kick boxing, san shou boxing. Muy thai spawned these other boxing styles by KO'ing a bunch of traditional fighters.

    Actually, there are quite a number of techniques in BJJ that are specific to that discipline. Most notably guard and 1/2 guard techniques.?

    Ryu-fu... I like it. Open a school, hang a Grandmaster shingle like cheesemaster does, and troll every MA board on the net.

    Oh, and don't forget to rabbit punch a taichi guy or two and call yourself the Grand Ultimate. And slam all other styles a lot.

    Definition of Kung Fu

    Kung Fu is "accomplishment over time" or something you master by spending lots of times practicing it.

    So, Ralek, if you play you SNES over and over and over again, then we can say you have Kung Fu at Nintendo games...

    Sorry, Rolls, but it seems you've been doing Kung Fu all this time...

    Jasbourne. I did not rabbit punch the tai chi instructor. I did a mystical punch known as the "left hook". It's actually a very powerful punch and is responible for most of the KO's in boxing.

    K ming show me the moves outside of modern hybrid grappling styles. I doubt you'll find any other than SC for throws.

    If she knows the boxing term "rabbit punch" don't ya think she'd know what a left hook is? :D

    So I shouldn't call it Kung Fu, huh Ralek?
    I can see your point. How about Chinese BJJ??
    Does that sound better?

    Jasbourne. I don't slam all other styles. I respect many styles in addition to my video game training.

    I respect videogames, muy thai, boxing, kickboxing, san shou, free style wrestling, greco-roman wrestling, brazilian jiujitsu, sambo, kali, tekken, streetfighter series, virtua fighter, soul caliber, ect.

    I only trash styles that are based on forms, stances, dead drills, and thorwing dragon punches into the air. Styles like Kung fu, Shotokan karate, taijiquan, wing chun, choy li fut, Hsing I, ect.
