Thread: Shuai Chiao for mma

    Shuai Chiao for mma

    I'm curious if anyone here has trained in shuai chiao and if so which lineage they would recommend for somebody looking to supplement their mma training.

    if you are thinking of fighting MMA i would look to western wrestling over SC and judo, and if you had to pick one judo over SC, for obvious reasons

    Why judo over sc for obvious reasons?

    Prolly because Judo is more for sport than for combat.

    Just as mma is more of a sport than actual combat.

    Surely more likely he meant that it's easier to find quality Judo instruction...

    Oh ok that makes sense but im not concerned about being able to find quality instruction. i'm surprised by the responses though so far. i thought people on a cma board would have thought that sc would be good for mma

    There are more people doing wrestling at a higher level than doing Judo

    There are more people doing judo at a higher level than doing Shuai Jiao

    Think of it this way, which is more impressive

    Muay Thai champion of Newark NJ or Muay Thai champion of Lumpinee stadium in Bangkok Thailand?

    Also, depending on where you are, may not have much choice, Shuai Jiao isn't exactly popular in the US

    When you said that SC will be good for MMA, some MMA guys will start to argue against you for the next 20 pages, and turn this thread into TCMA vs MMA thread. If you said that SC will not be good for MMA, you won't give those guys any chance to start that argument. There is no need to use your "hot face" to touch someone's "cold ass".

    this is part of what i meant (a big part), plus wrestling is a jackless sport, as is MMA, and although there is a cross over between the two you have to modify what you do with a jacket to what you do without one, not only is wrestling open to a bigger competition pool its rule set it is also easy to transition from, plus it has a ground game of sort

    Also since judo and wrestling do have ground elements the throw takes this into account, how you land is almost as important as how you throw, SC does not have this, just see the clips posted on this post lovely sweep in one of them, but the opponent has plenty of room and space to get back up

    judo has a ground game so at least you will learn pins, submissions and get ups, thats why i listed it as i did, no hatred of CMA just an honest opinion
