Re: Any martial artists, jiujitsu guys, boxers etc. on glp?
some of these bro-tards are onto something...fighters are fighters-it's the way their brains are wired, just differently than normal people...it's not natural to want to get punched in the face;

bjj is great because in my experience, it is the most consistently physical of the fighting/sport arts. I love karate (noob black belt), but prior to the planned-demic, we'd spar every other week. It was cool, but you're talking sparring with people older, younger, healther, stronger, slower, smaller, etc...and you have to be really careful to make sure you don't break somebody's grandmother, destroy a teenager, or bust a lawyer's face the week of a case.

bjj, on the other hand-every class, putting your hands on people; choking, getting choked; arms, legs, you get the occasional punch/elbow/knee/shot to the baws, but the physicality of rolling and working on your grips, flexibility, balance, domination, recovering from bad positions-that IS class. Warm-up, technique, ROLL. I find myself skipping classes if my head isn't in a 'fighty' kind of place.

At the end of the day, find something you like and stick with it (the people, your coach, location); it's going to cost you $ and you won't use it on the streets. BUT, if you were to get into a street confrontation, many people do wild, looping roundhouse punches toward the side of your chin. Regular joes don't know how to throw punches...but if they connect with a wild punch, it can still break your skull-and that's before their friends jump on your head. The most effective methods on the street are quick, brutal, and not honor bound (knees, elbows, Oh-my-BAWS!!!, eyes, necks), and don't involve closed fists like asshole movie stunt fights.

You will get the shit kicked out of yourself. MMA is fake as any other sport, been caught rigging too many fights.

But it isn't just marital arts, it all has to do with how good your fighting skills are. Besides being rigged, the only real difference between traditional contact karate or contact martial arts is grappling. If you cannot grapple or wrestle, you will be sent home with your tail between your legs.

In full contact fighting watching rigged fighting on TV isn't going to do it for you.

It’s hard for me because I do believe sports are rigged. I think it’s possible some mma is but...I don’t know. Those guys seem to have too much pride to take a fall.

I’d fight a guy who wrestles it grapples. I’m sure I’d lose but all I said is I wanna have 1 fight, I didn’t say I had to win it haha!

I've got Martial Arts background including competing, and I've watched a lot of UFC ... and only once I've seen a fight that looked fixed (Kimbo Slice against a guy who looked he didn't try to do anything ... Kimbo (R.I.P) was an internet sensation the UFC tried to build up.)

You don't have to like UFC but it's not rigged.
It is almost impossible to carry the torch of truth through a crowd without singeing somebody's beard ... or without getting banned

Re: Any martial artists, jiujitsu guys, boxers etc. on glp?
Had a couple of fights as a kid, dirt/grass/playground rocks, mostly grappling & some wild swinging (gross motor skills only, no fine motor skills).

As an adult: I honestly don't know if I'd be any good in a fight. I feel like after bjj and karate, I can defend myself, but I certainly don't enjoy getting hit in the face and I'm not as young & athletic as I used to be. I am big and I can take a beating, so I feel okay about self-defense, but...I live in a city. Concrete everywhere. A hit means a potential broken skull on that concrete w/brain bleeding, death, and prison.

I'm old enough now to realize I have something to lose by acting like I have something to prove. Martial arts appreciation happened early-Rocky IV, Bloodsport, Enter the Dragon, Missing in Action, American Ninja, Hard to Kill, etc...-but didn't get bit by the bug until military service, when other people in my unit were hooked by Liddell v Ortiz & early UFC action; plus, I work in education, so my entire professional life is about conflict avoidance and de-escalation (taking my size 6'2+, 250+, and making it less intimidating).

I have broken toes, a finger, got a hernia, and tore a meniscus in karate. Also broke someone's rib-ushiro geri (back kick) under control, as light as I could make it, giving my partner 2 options: go right and avoid it, or panic, and jump left into it; they panicked and jumped flush into missing a month of practice.

In bjj, I tap...frequently...and haven't had injuries, although I have had pain. I love rolling with big people b/c my coach thinks I should be a big, strong guy rolling like a big, strong guy...I get yelled at (coached up) when I roll like I'm 150, because those small people are so flexible and have awesome cardio. I'm learning to work within my body and use what I have, not trying to be someone and use skills that are a poor fit for my fitness journey.

Scored a brown belt in MCMAP while enlisted, now I just spar on occasion with friends with martial arts/military backround to stay fresh. It works, plus the more you do it the less you physically feel pain, super duper useful. Just mind the occasional broken rib or two, maybe a clavicle sometimes but when it heals you have an awesome bone bulge that messes peoples knuckles up as they are twice as hard as the bone.
I hope you believe you are doing well

I don’t know what branch of the military you were in but thanks!

I’m 6’2 255, strong-ish and my buddies that work at bjj are small, 5,9 175-195 and they make me tap! I’ve never traditionally rolled or trained bjj but I really should. Thanks again for more lol!
