homes for sale If you spent any time around other guys, school, church, or whatever, then you were always asked what your bench press was. This is true from high school on. I’ve always been competitive, so I worked on my bench press a lot, took supplements, vitamins etc. and made sure that I was always one of the guys who could bench the most on sports teams and among friends.
Of course you know this meant I was tough, I knew could take anyone I could bench more than. Well, then again… when I was in my early twenties I decided to get involved with Martial Arts, I figured now that I was out of college sports this would be my next challenge.
juegos If you talk to experts in fighting and hand-to-hand combat who have studied striking martial arts like Karate and Tae Kwon Do for example as well as grappling and throwing arts like Judo, Jiu Jitsu and Aikido, the majority of them will agree that for real world self defense and unarmed combat, Jiu Jitsu techniques are the single most effective way to learn to protect yourself in just about any situation. Think back to any fights you may have seen in real life – not in a movie or TV show.
trabajo Unlike choreographed actors in a film who throw beautiful spinning butterfly kicks to the head in slow motion, real fights in dangerous situations quite often begin with a few sloppy punches at best and quickly turn into a basic grappling competition. College wrestlers, for example, are often better able to survive a bar brawl or a cage fight better than a top-level Kung Fu master. Also, many people are learning martial arts to prepare for a hopeful career in the military or police, and Jiu Jitsu techniques will certainly be more adaptable and immediately useful to military or police training than most striking forms.
TMA (Karate, Kung Fu, Taekwondo, etc.) Emphasize And Glorify “High Kicks” - Due to most of the hoopla and fiction of what is portrayed in the movies, high kicks are emphasized and taught. The interesting thing is that for real life self protection, attempting high kicks is risky foolish, unwise and impractical. Trying to kick someone in the face makes as much sense as bending over to punch someone in the foot. High kicks require extreme hamstring and hip flexibility which begins to diminish rapidly after age 40.
What makes Jiu Jitsu techniques different than other martial arts is that they focus on effective chokes and submissions to disable an opponent rather than more risky kicks and punches. While not exposing much of his own body to harm and also without exerting much physical effort, a master of Jiu Jitsu techniques can render an attacker unconsciously or physically unable to continue to fight with just a few fundamental moves.
Another reason Jiu Jitsu techniques are the most effective: close quarters combat. Many fights will occur in a relatively small space or crowded area. Imagine being accosted while you’re in an ATM booth, on crowded public transportation, perhaps in the bedroom or hallway of your own home; in each of these areas you will have limited room to operate against your aggressor – most often you’ll simply lack the space to throw a nice high roundhouse kick to the head, even if you do have time to set yourself and get it off. Even if you try, you will likely find your attacker ducking and rushing in towards your body while you’re still on one leg. One way or another, you’ll end up on the ground and that’s where Jiu Jitsu techniques reign supreme You can be published without charge. You can to republish this article in your website or blog.
