Martial Arts are completely useless

I was going to go to a Taekwondo class but then I found out online that martial arts are completely useless in a real fight apparently. And I wanted self-defence training.

As I thought about this I realised it was completely true..................

I am trained in Judo, (no punching and kicking), and my identical twin is one belt below black in karate. We had lots of fights when I was mentally ill and it would usually end in a standoff because we were both pretty evenly matched. I didn't use any of my throws or holds and that means my twin's brown belt in karate was useless against me who would actually be a white belt in karate. How amazing is that!

Apparently things like boxing, wrestling and MMA are better because you actually get hit and experience the real ruff-and-tumble of a real fight.

Re: Martial Arts are completely useless

Be aware of some specialized "martial arts" which prohibits some attacks at its weak sides.  Taekwondo, prohibits throwing, for example. Judo prohibits punching and kicking.

These can be called fake martial arts because they don't stand the chance if an opponent attacks at the weak sides using the usually banned strike.

A very rounded martial arts at least declares how to combat other main styles of fighting.

You can try some Chinese style and ask if they have this content.

Taiji, for example, is another fake martial arts.

Shaolin fight technique, is not.

Re: Martial Arts are completely useless

By "fake", isn't that why they're even called "art" to begin with?


Actually I never watch Star Wars and not interested in it anyway, but I choose a Yoda card as my avatar in honor of our great friend bobbym who has passed away. May his adventurous soul rest in peace at heaven.
