Because Karate stops working at about 5 feet of distance between you wand the other guy.

That's what I always love about whackjobs with the "I'll use my karate to take your gun!" thing. Never mind the issues with proper execution or if the gun get discharged while it happens, it all becomes useless if said person with a gun holds you 10 feet away, which is rather the point of a firearm. The whole reason for them wasn't that we didn't have ways of killing someone, swords and knives do a good job, it was that we wanted to not be in grabbing range of the other guy when we were doing it.

Although, to be fair, anyone with even one degree of black belt (like I myself) knows perfectly well that you don't bring karate to a gunfight. You bring a bigger gun.

Of course, anyone with even half a brain to go along with their belt knows you don't take weapons through a security checkpoint, because if you're any good at all, you can take out a hijacker without a gun. So I'm assuming this guy got his "7th degree black belt" via correspondence course.

No, from his dad. Of course his dad just made up their brand of karate out of thin air.

Any martial art with "degrees" of black belts (or belts in general except for BJJ) are pretty much useless for any type of hand to hand combat. It's basically just a form of aerobics.

cowgirl toffee: What the hell is a "pount round"?


Hollow point rounds. Basically a bullet with an empty space that prevents it from penetrating too far into a target, thereby transferring a lot of its energy into the target and causing more damage instead of going straight through. At least that's what video games and movie have taught me.

He simply misspelled that. He probably has plenty of crappling skills. Probably enough to last all of two minutes with any blue belt in BJJ, like most "7th degree" black belts in karate. Sure, some have and provide legit ground training, but they are a significant minority.

The hollow does not usually prevent the bullet from going all the way through. What it does do is cause the bullet to peal back like an evil flower, making it nice and wide to tear through the meat and take a big chunk out the other side with it. The jackets of some hollow points are even crimped (providing naturally strong and weaker points around the circle, in order to optimise the flower shape. The interior of a hollow-point round is generally lead, which is very mailable along with being dense.

BJJ has black belt stripes or "degrees." The difference is, though, BJJ is still proud of its lineage. It is important who gave them their rank, and who gave rank to the guy that ranked him. If the black belt running a school or program at a gym or whatever is legit, you can expect to receive legitimate training and not a bunch of bullshiat. Likewise, even at at karate school, you can receive legitimate training.

If the BJJ instructor cant/wont tell you who ranked him or he gives you a name that google won't hit on for BJJ, he's bullshiat. If the karate guy says you can earn a black belt in 3 years or some nonsense, it is a mcdojo.

The graduated color belt thing began in Japan but was adopted by Korean tae kwon do largely to sell belts in McDojos. The color of your belt only matters if it comes with a verifiable win/loss competition record. In the early 90's mixed martial arts began drawing a line between effective fighting techniques and delusional LARPing.

If the only way to "level up" (especially to the topmost ranks) in your art is to face an opponent in direct competition then chances are your martial art emphasizes the "martial" part. Especially if your opponent's leveling up depends on HIM kicking YOUR ass in so he can get his belt. As close to full speed and full contact as you can repeatably do is the kind of training that leads to success in a fight.

I don't think competition is always an indicator, but gyms that really push for people to compete are more likely to give good training, quality skills and less bullshiat.

Also, not everyone wants to compete and not everyone is cut out to perform in front of a crowd. Doesn't make you less of a fighter or reduce your "rank" in whatever punchy-kicky-grabby thing you like to do.

Mixolydian Master: I'd love to see this 7th degree McBlackbelt in a single round of an MMA fight.


I somehow knew we'd never get through this thread without at least one member of the MMA brigade showing up to say something like this.

And skimming through the posts I also see somebody claiming that BJJ is somehow magically better than everything.

Ahh, fads in martial arts and people who think they know something.

First of all this 'in the ring' stuff isn't some grand simulation of 'real life' fighting. People who go out and try to fight the way you see on television in the MMA competitions typically wind up face down in an alley. Which is not to say that MMA doesn't work in a 'real fight', because it most certainly does, but its no magic bullet and certainly no better than half a dozen other things I can think of. Hit hard and get away as quickly as possible, it doesn't matter what style you're using.

As for what the idiot from the article is all about? Basically somebody came up with the stereotypical mixture of karate/judo/jui jitsu, threw in a few moves from western styles, and added in a healthy amount of "PRAISE TEH JESUS!!", and called it a new form of martial arts. Somebody posted one of those stupidly videos where the person demonstrates how great they are by having a planned out scenario for the "master" to demonstrate his skills.

Who said BJJ was better than anything?

Fight MMA? Learn wrestling and either boxing or kickboxing. Wanna box? Take goddam boxing. Those are sports. Those are not alley-techniques, although those all have some applicability. Best alley techniques? Either gun or run. Or stay the fark outta shady alleys.

This guy, though, this guy is just another stupid McBlackBelt™ with too much jeebus on his brain who thinks if he can incorporate some crapola grappling shiat into his mcdojo, he'll be able to ride the MMA wave to make another payment on the Lexus while leaving his students with the misguided notion they actually have picked up some self-defense skills.

Bet he talks about techniques he knows but cannot demonstrate them because "teh deadly" and therefore too dangerous.

Just another dickbag scam artist.

Gichin Funakoshi, father of modern day karate: "The ultimate aim of the art of karate lies not in victory or defeat, but in the perfection of the characters of its participants."

The martial arts aren't for winning fights, but cultivating your spirit. MMA is fine entertainment for some, but it has little to do with martial arts.
