Kickboxing: An Ancient Sport, Or Is It An Art?

Posted By: miller Indo

The art of kickboxing has been known in Asia for over 2,000 years. It became very popular in the United States in the early 1970’s. Kickboxing is considered to be a form of martial arts. It is very appealing to many individuals because it allows more contact kicks and punches than other forms of martial arts. Other moves include kick blocks, shadow boxing, sparring, and wood breaking. Due to the risk of injury, kickboxing has more safety rules for competition than other forms of martial arts.

Many people choose to take up the sport of kickboxing for their physical health rather than for competition. A kickboxing workout will get you in shape with the various moves and kicks involved. Your stamina will increase and you will get more flexible. It is also a great cardio workout. Kickboxing is a great sport for parents and children to do together.

It is a good idea to work into a kickboxing routine, especially if you are out of shape. Make sure you stretch properly before you start and do a cool down at the end of the workout. Since kickboxing is so intense, beginners can hurt themselves it the do too much too fast.

If you are interested in kickboxing as a sport or as a workout, you can choose from taking classes to buying tapes that allow you to do them in your home. Make sure which ever option that you decide is at your skill level. If you aren’t sure about a kickboxing class, ask the instructor if you can come in to observe one before committing to it. For the best experience in a kickboxing class, train under an instructor who has a black belt in some area of martial arts and who is also recognized as a fitness instructor. The more experienced your teacher, the more likely that you’ll be able to learn quickly.

Kimbo Street Fights Are Inspiring Fighters Around The Globe

Posted By: miller Indo

Miami based street boxer Kimbo did not get his reputation as one of the toughest street fighters simply by ordinary fights. Known as the king of street fights, Kimbo Slice has some real street fights under his sleeves.

Kimbo’s first reputed street fights was with Leonard Bryd. Actualy it was one-sided bareknuckle boxing fight between him and Bryd, another large black man in a backyard in Perrine, Florida. The king easily dominated the fight, his several mean blows to Bryd’s right eye made it a bloody mess and understandably, after a good number of knockdowns, Bryd refuses to contest anymore. For Kimbo, he’s in a restless state, yelling at his opponent to hurry up the fight while Byrd hardly have the time to even catch his breath. The end of the fight, one sees Kimbo giving a short statement, unashamedly telling the audience that’s the way a niggar eats!

Another famous fighter that Kimbo fights in the streets is with Sean Gannnon, known aptly as ‘ the Cannon’. This is the sole fight where Kimbo loses and that too to a cop! Anyhow, Kimbo was actually challenged by the Boston police officer in 2003 and it takes place in an enclosed padded room with a full audience in attendance. This fight is also mixed in some controvercies regarding the rules to be followed; both agreed that kicking and ground submissions were not acceptable. There came some disagreement from the supporters of the cop that it was within the rules for Gannon to use his knees and attempt standing submission against Kimbo. Well, the fight started with some punches from both which was soon followed by Kimbo grabbing the cops midsection but soon Gannon retaliated in a quillotine choke. This was met with huge protests by Kimbo’s supporters that it was againt the rules and interfered in the fight, blocking the camera too. This led to the release of Kimbo from the death grip, then the blackguy pummels the cop vigorously but Gannon was soon able to stand up and caught Kimbo in another mighty choke. Another protest from Kimbo’s supporters came and also when the cop delivered a few knees to Kimbo’s face by bending him down. By this time both were quite exhausted and soon, Gannon became more fierce, knocking Kimbo thrice after which Kimbo was not in much shape to continue and the Cop from Boston was declared the winner. And yes, this bout in the underground street fighting with Kimbo did no cost Gannon his job but a reputation as the Cannon.

Another famous fight was with Rasta. Here each fighter were able to dodge and block the other’s attacks well. But this is not Kimbo’s style. Soon he delivers a mean uppercut to Rasta’s face, bleeding his nose profusely and Rasta declares that he’s done. Over the internet, several challenges and mean fights of Kimbo can be found. He’s someone to be feared, declaring openly that he has the passion to fight real fights and for the money too.

Muay Thai Combinations You Need To Know To Win Your Fights

Posted By: miller Indo

I’ve got a confession to make. I like watching science programs and nature programs. I recently watched a National Geographic special on The Science of the Punch and learned a lot about martial arts that I hadn’t considered before. I learned that the single most powerful punch – by a factor of 30% – was from good old fashioned Western boxing. I saw a lot about transferring energy from the back leg through the core of the body that I’d known before, and some really cool stuff from ninjitsu that I’d never seen before. But what impressed me most of all was watching their section on Mauy Thai, and how some of the combinations in Mauy Thay deliver the ultimate combination of economy of motion and force to the body.

This inspired me to check out some Mauy Thai instructional videos. Yeah, yeah, it’s Yoshi talking about Yet Another Couch Potato Style Kung Fu Style, right? Not quite. The thing about Muay Thai instructional DVDs, since Muay Thai is, effectively, a mixed martial arts full contact sport, is that the DVDs are really about bare bones practicality. They’re not going to load you up with lots of “Contemplate the caterpillar weaving its cocoon” philosophy – they get straight on with it, covering stances, blocks and traps, and how to combine them into combinations.

Muay Thai words from three basic stances – the closed stance, which is used for kicks, the side stance, which is used for traps and setting up joint locks, and the horse stance, which is designed for powerful punches, and combinations. There’s a lot of emphasis in the Muay Thai instruction DVDs on good stance and good footwork; you have to be able to go from a grab-and-pull to a head grab to a knee to the sternum, and for that you need good balance.

I’ll be honest – I had an easier time with this one than most will; I’ve worked with Wing Chung Kung Fu and jiu jutsu for years, and a lot of the concepts transfer over well; most of what I got out of Muay Thai was the focus on pure pragmatism. It’s entirely about taking the block and setting up the counterstrike, be it with knee, elbow, fist or foot. I could see from the Mauy Thai instructional DVD that I got that real Muay Thai practitioners get hit a lot – there’s much more contact in the DVD than I’m used to seeing in training or sparring.

Following along, I got a good workout, and was really glad it was just me and a freestanding bag rather than me and some kid who’s 10 years younger than me. Seriously, that Muay Thai instructional DVD made me feel my years. My knees were aching when I was done, and I was soaked. It was a good workout, like most martial arts training is. I can say this – I’d never try this with another person without some serious protective gear on me!

Street Fight Tips: General Tips For Street Fights

Posted By: miller Indo

Street fights are real mean and while defending yourself from attacks may find yourself in jail too when accidentally you injure the assailants seriously. As such try to avoid street fighting as much as possible. Yep, being called a coward may be demeaning, but ain’t it much better than getting a prison serial number? The choice is yours.

Next step is to keep calm, don’t let the rough situation control you but keep your mind focused and use it to you advantage.

After all the grappling and miss punches againt your opponent, if it fails to make its mark and now your mouths already pressed steafeningly against your opponent, well grap the opportunity and bite! Human jaw has a mean, powerful muscle, clamp your teeth hard on the exposed area of the opponent inflicting some brutal incisions. For many, this painful bite keeps them off your back. Use this technique only when you are pinned down, unable to move your arms or legs. And yes, biting doesn’t mean small nips of irritaion but strong bite with your mouth and with as much force as you can muster. Pull your mouth away from your opponent quickly once you can’t bite any further, spitting off what you just bit off. Its gross but may just have saved your life!

The key to winning a street fight is to keep a clear head; know your opponent. The oponent may be high with some illegal drugs giving them superhuman abilities and impervious to pain. So check out for this. Its better to run a mile away from this guy then to mess with him in this state. Or if you are strong enough, disable him by breaking arms or legs. Choking, to cause them to pass out without dying is also a good tactic, but do so only if you are sure. Once the opponent goes limp, don’t just leave him there, alert the authorities for medical treatment showing your good intentions.

Also if the need arises to really fight, make sure you attack the weak points, forehead to groin parts. Try also to face an opponent almost side on so that your weak parts are covered. Don’t just punch them, most of it will be in thin air! Hit from your body, not from your shoulder and arm alone so that the force will be more. Make sure to turn your waist with the punch to coordinate your whole body with the strike. For beginners, its best to use open palms with force. Well sometimes your loud screams works in distracting the opponent too. So while punching and kicking, some ‘HAIII Yah!’ may unnerve them but don’t overdo it please, it may just leave you breathless! Also even if you have to grind your teeth, never show your opponent that you are in pain. A strong approach may unnerve them or simply act as if you are enjoying the fight, unnerving the attacker. Keeping a cool head is the lesson here.

The Principles Of Ba Gua Zhang Fighting

Posted By: miller Indo

You want to find out about one of the rarest, most underrated forms of martial arts fighting? I learned all about this great fighting style called Ba Gua Zhang. It really blew me away because this style of fighting is not like most fighting styles, especially all that stuff you might see on television or in the movies.

What makes Ba Gua Zhang so different is the fact this style is based on the open fist philosophy rather than the closed fist. You see, the object is to strike down your opponent with skill rather than simple brute force. It takes a bit longer to get really good at this kind of fighting but it has some really good things going for it.

When I was younger, I used to get into fights all the time. This was before I learned how to fight for real and also before I matured quite a bit and learned that fighting is not always necessary. I used to fight with my fists instead of my head and that got me not only into a lot of trouble but also a lot of broken bones. Especially my fist. Any decent fighter worth his salt has broken a hand or two. It is not much fun, it hurts a lot and it puts you out of commission for a while, too. What happens if you have to defend yourself the next day and you’ve got a broken hand? You are in trouble that’s what.

So Ba Gua Zhang taught me there is another way. Fighting doesn’t have to be all straight ahead attacking. You can subdue a threat with skill instead of trying to just maul the guy. The basic concept of this style is to constantly move and change your approach to any given situation. No matter what your opponent throws at you, be ready to keep adapting.

One of the main things you do when you first start practicing this style is the circle walk. It is really very simple. You just walk around in a circle. Seems silly maybe, but you stay in motion and, believe you me, a moving target is harder to hit than a non-moving one! So your opponent has to come to you and moving around gets him out of his comfort zone. It also prepares you to defend yourself. It is much tougher to move fast if you are just standing there still. If you are already moving, it is easy to keep moving, get it?

Another thing that is important to know is the idea behind palm changes or different postures your upper body is exacting. I mean, heck, your lower body is doing something, why not give your upper body something to do as well, right? These moves get you ready to fight. It is like priming the pump or winding the spring of a catapult – preparing for battle, if you will. That is how real fighting is, quick and spontaneous.
