The most effective martial arts.
It’s many, many years that I practice, study, analyze and teach far and wide the most effective combat systems in the world both sporting and non-sporting, practicing, doing internships, courses, watching thousands of hours of video (and it is not a random number and I do not talk about YouTube), this allowed me to make a comparison to find in martial arts and combat sports strengths and weaknesses.
That’s why some limbs are more effective and work better.
The method makes a difference.
In the martial arts environment there are some martial arts that are considered more effective than others, in fact potentially they all are but the crucial problem is how they are trained that make them effective and functional.
Now what I’m writing to you doesn’t want to be the absolute truth, I just write for the passion I have for martial arts, for the truth about the effectiveness of the arts and I’m ready to think again with pleasure if I find something that makes this world evolve.
But this is my opinion and it bothers me who treats martial arts, sports combat and personal defense leave out its final aspect that is to be able to apply the techniques in a non-cooperative context.
The rest is just chatter, what you study and that works is what you can apply to your training partner or an attacker without him wanting.
So the effectiveness of your martial art is related to how many strokes, levers, projections, etc. you can apply to a non-cooperative subject.
After years of passionate research and application what turns out that the difference in effectiveness is not related to the types of strokes, or to the style of struggle, but in the training method.
Potentially they can all be effective but the method that makes the difference.
In Fighting Tips™ this research work has been brought to develop a system that makes any martial art effective and functional.
Often the effectiveness or otherwise of an art is delegated to the athlete, but it can not be so, probably that athlete whatever martial art he did would have been a strong fighter, for physical predisposition, athletic, motor, already has in itself characteristics and skills that make it effective, clearly the study and application have exalted its characteristics, but the purpose of an instructor or a school and to make strong even people who do not have those skills and who have need to be brought to the surface of greater depth and more structured work.
This is the difference between a didactic to take you money and a teaching to teach you to be something you’ve never been.
I have tried to reconstruct for every martial art, combat sports and personal defense system that I have studied or crossed details with its positive and negative characteristics (its limitations).
As is normally done during such a complex journey in time research I rework my ideas and my studies trying to improve them and, if necessary, abandon them completely for a new formulation.
This is research in martial arts.
I have no absolute truths and I do not want to prove that I am always right, there are already too many marketing manipulations based on lies and weekend courses made by “experts” and aspiring gurus of all kinds who want to sell you magical solutions that make you invincible in 10 lessons.
Unfortunately, where money is circulating there are always people ready to exploit this world without ethics and expertise.
I don’t sell you anything here, but I tell you that what you learn is not related to an event but is always the consequence of a process.
You will not learn any martial art in an instant, if you want to learn you need a process that can not be done by a few hours of course.
You’re “reading” only the preface you don’t know the content and I assure you it’s not a few-page book but it’s an encyclopedia of martial arts and combat with millennia of ever-changing history.
No matter how long you keep turning the page you will never find the last one.
There are a few things that are important for you to know:
- Athletic preparation is fundamental and must be specific and functional to your art, it is not fitness to study a martial art, but it is useless to know techniques without being able to do so.
- No martial art, sports, personal defense system has value if you want to learn how to fight without the real comparison, so you have to do minimal so much sparring and even competitions.
- In the gym you learn to fight but you can’t learn the “personal defense” because you can’t test it all the way.
As you know there are arts that are considered very effective such as boxing, Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai and MMA (with reserve), it is a fact known to all and it does not serve that justifies and proves that it is not so, they are known facts.
- Why does this art work more than that?
- What is the constant among the martial arts considered most effective?
- Do they have different techniques?.
- Are it just the techniques that make the difference?
- et cetera.
Fighting is not just about techniques and movements.
Although each art emphasizes strategies and types of strokes, the common biomechanics of the human body cannot lead to such different types of strokes as different. Surely there are also important technical details that differentiate them.
- But how is it possible that similar techniques (in different limbs) produce very different results?.
- What makes it functional in fighting techniques?.
- Need a mix of integration between different arts like MMA?
Effective arts have the same didactic process, regardless of style, whether it’s standing or ground fighting, etc.
Sports such as boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai and MMA are perfectly integrable with each other not so much for the specialization of each in a specific area and distance / combat sector but because even someone maybe MMA may not be interested in sharing the same teaching method, although in different sectors the training has important emphasis on aspects that make the martial art effective.
No art or martial sport that doesn’t integrate this didactic way of learning to fight can work in a real fight (excluding c.c. being absent in the structural method of learning the fundamental part that allows you to understand how and when to use the techniques learned.
If you don’t use the teaching method I suggest you’ll never really want to make your martial art work whatever it is.
There is a process in 5/1 stages that build martial skills that lead a beginner to know how to defend himself successfully.
I repeat anticipating what you would read that it is a process is not a single event.
ASASSS, NEW NEW850S
1 – LEARN — > listen and look at the instructor/master explaining the technique.
2 – STUDY — > In pairs you experience what you have seen, without looking for speed, without resistance on the part of the companion, and for the time necessary to memorize the technique.
3 – APPLY — > It is always a couples exercise, you apply the technique, you do NOT fight with our training partner, but you perform the technique with the companion who does not make a cooperation but still allows you to try the technique at speed.
If you’re wrong, he runs away, pulls off an arm, moves a leg, doesn’t get projected, etc. It doesn’t cooperate with you but it makes you try the technique.
4 — SPARRING OBLIGED — > For this exercise it takes a lot of intelligence and you can do it in two phases, one phase in which you can both do only one technique, and one phase in which you can only do one technique and the other instead free.
As you can imagine it’s limiting for you, you’ll take a lot of hits but you’re learning to use that technique really.
5 – SPARRING FREE –> From theory to the stress test of a real fight; whether it’s sparring or a championship race, here you can see how you react under pressure, what you really know how to do and what aspects and changes you need to do to your technical and athletic preparation part that YOU SHOULD NEVER UNDERESTIMATE.
It is the most adrenaline-pumping and exciting and therefore also psychologically and physically proof that you can do in a controlled and sporting field.
Ps. Attention!! I recommend the use of protections
5+1 THE REAL STREET FIGHT — > Hopingyou never get it in life, it’s time for the real no-rules trial, WITHOUT RULES.
This is something you can’t simulate in the gym as much as you try to do.
These are the real MMA.
All these steps are important and necessary because none excludes the other but phase 4 and 5 are the ones that make you understand if you understand how to use the technique you studied, otherwise you are making cinema, maybe even beautiful to see but useless in the end that I think you have if you read this blog.
Attention!! without the precise application of the teaching process in these stages even an art considered as effective as those listed before becomes ineffective in real and non-cooperative combat.
Again, poor training does the same damage as all the arts that do not follow this educational structure.
Now what you just read doesn’t want to be an absolute truth but if you follow what I wrote to you you you are not mistaken.
It is a technical analysis that in years of experience leads us to consider this didactic approach the real secret of success in learning martial arts in facts beyond the theories made of ifs and buts that in practice make you feel clumsy unsuitable, emptied, as if everything you think you know is useless but it is not so.
The difference lies in the method in which you train, the hours do not count, the number of techniques does not count, what matters is the development of attributes.
These steps that I explained to you do not enclose the complete method but give you an idea, on how to do things at each stage is a talk that we will address later, where I will explain how and what to do.
Clearly it is a departure and within each stage there is additional content to be implemented to make the work more and more effective and focused on your goal that is never equal if it is sport because everyone has its own regulations and even less if it comes to self-defense.
If you use what I write to you, do it ethically.
Stay Tuned! And understand why some martial arts are more effective.
