Walk into any traditional martial arts dojo, and just observe. Notice how many middle-aged men and women that you see there over the age of 50. I would dare say very few. Have you ever asked yourself why? If you say that martial arts is only for the very young, then how do you account for the fact that most of the teachers who consider themselves as masters are in their 50's and 60's? Â (By the way, to reach your 50's and 60's in the mastery of a martial art usually means that you started maybe as a teenager and because you are a teacher, you get to continue to practice and maintain your skill level by practicing hours each day.Â The average everyday person has a life and families and cannot devote every waking hour to the perfection of a fighting art.)
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.
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.Â The interesting thing is that for real life self protection, attempting high kicks is risky foolish, unwise and impractical.Â Trying to kick someone in the face makes as much sense as bending over to punch someone in the foot.Â High kicks require extreme hamstring and hip flexibility which begins to diminish rapidly after age 40.
