/asp/ martial art gif thread.
Really nice osoto with the mechanics of a knee cut pass, however i cringe, if uke didn't know how to fall its a good way to destroy a person's knee, Hell even with good ukemi this osto variant could pop a person's knee with enough speed to it.
>tfw favorite takedown in wrestling but can't slam like that aside from mma
sode tsuri komi with a front belt grip modification
very beautiful and sneaky since its technically illegal to grip the belt like he did, but the ref didn't see it.
guy in head gear goes for a head lock throw/half hip throw variant, misses it, non head gear guy counters with a nice ura nage/suplex.
seoi nage happens time to time in wrestling, don't mentally handicap yourself thinking a piece of clothe makes or breaks a technique, it makes your grappling career plateau hard.
A strong grip on the arm is all you need to make seoi nage work in wrestling. that and kazushi with stems from the strong grip. Variants have evolved to compensate for gi or no gi which has forced the evolution for like lateral drops and whizzer based throws that are akin to judo's shoulder throw
Looks pretty cool, tbh. May have the chance to train KK soon, though I would also like to train Judo. From what I saw in this thread it also seems pretty awesome. Can't choose both, halp.
I don't get it
If somebody raised their knee like that, would the instinctive thing to do be to back up?
Not move towards it with your rear hand guarding your jaw?
Don't practice martial arts, I'm genuinely asking anybody who does for their opinion on this
My first guess is that he thought his opponent was throwing a kick to the head from the outside like you see here >>733276 You can see that the head kick here also starts with the raised knee and then the leg extends. So he tries to throw that arm up to block the head kick but his opponent throws a front kick straight up the middle.
But why would you use your arm to block a kick?
Wouldn't moving entirely be the best course of action to avoid a kick, whether side kick or whatever or front kick to the face?
Just saying, from a physics standpoint contact is still an exchange in energy, and the leg is the heaviest and most lever-like capable limb on the body
Idk I dont fight but it doesn't seem like a persons forearm cannot effectively block a person of similar size and weight swinging their leg around with torque
Are you speaking from experience?
Again I have no point of reference, and I could be wrong as fuck, I'm just pointing out what seems to make sense from a non-practitioners standpoint
Your arms can block kicks just fine, as long as you don't mess up and block bone-to-bone. The reason he would block instead of trying to evade was that his weight was already committed forward so he couldn't lean back, and attempting to duck under a kick of any sort is extremely dangerous (you might misread the kick and end up ducking *into* it instead).
Of course avoiding it is the best course of action but you can't really dodge every strike. Blocking a kick with your arm is still gonna do some damage to you, sometimes enough to break your arm, sometimes none at all, but sometimes it's all you've got. In his situation he was coming forward already so he didn't have a lot of opportunity to dodge without putting himself in more danger so he tried to block which was also ineffective since he misread his opponents attack
how does what work? you twist the shit out of their elbow and make it bend in a way that it isn't suppose to, and then it keeps twisting till there is pressure on the elbow and shoulder.
Kinda like a figure four/americana/ude garami.
I mean, you can see how it works in the clips. Guess you don't do much grappling?
As a side note, you can get an awesome grip if you grab the opponents opposite collar with the cranking hand.
This one is incredible also.
Some muay thai to thank you and keep that thread alive
Is it a boon or a bane that BJJ guys are so apt to hold on to a hold and get slammed, instead of just letting go and resetting to standing while maintaining some semblance of control?
For a MA that so focuses on control of the situation, and the slow in slow out approach, I see so many practitioners that think they have a hold, and then get knocked out via a slam instead of just letting go.
its important to remember methodology. helio gracie developed this sport because he was too small and weak to do judo at an open weight, but he was competitive with newaza. this created something that all but disregards the physicality of martial arts to a fault and people think their technique is all they need.
sometimes you just gotta scramble though
