Martial Arts / Re: japanese or chinese
« on: May 06, 2006, 02:40:27 PM »
Chinese all the way, they are the originators of what I consider the worlds most dangerous arts. There are some hard styles of Kung Fu mostly found in the Hung Gar systems; but they are still extremely internal in nature. I would recommend finding an art that stresses Qi development and use, as well as an art that incorporates the hard and soft nature of the martial arts. Japanese Jujutsu or as I say,"Real Jujutsu." Incorporates hard and soft. Hope I was of a little help. This subject can be taken into much more depth if anyone wants it to go further. :biggrin:

Martial Arts / Re: iron palm training and conditioning
« on: April 29, 2006, 07:08:54 PM »
With proper training of Iron Palm or Iron Fist. A person should never leave with scares or other deformaties. Dit Da Jow, Meditations, and Qi gong are vital in proper training for healing and conditioning. Large and scared knuckles are caused by improper training or a person trying to intimidate others while being a show off.

For the note:

For Martial Artist engaging in any hand conditioning! If taken to court for using your skills for self-defense or whatever, and you seriously hurt someone. If their is any decent indication that you train your hands to break bones, bricks, ect. Get the point? By having major scarred and or calloused knuckles. You will be in alot of trouble.

It's nice to have someone defending Bruce Lee for the training methods he used.
Thank You Talyn for giving more the benificial facts about Bruce.
But to some it may mean nothing. All those quotes from reputable people.  :wink:
I guess it will always be debated amoung people who didn't know him.
But to those who knew him, we really can't disagree.
We weren't there.
Even those who did not like Bruce could not deny the speed and power he developed from what many say were unconventional methods that would hurt you, or wouldn't work.

Most people do not, and most likely will not have access to the origanal teaching of Dr. Mikao Usui. The founder of Usui Reiki Ryoho.
Many methods have become really modern, and use new techniques (less powerfull hand positions), symbols have been altered, etc. Alot of things still work, but aren't the same strength or nearly as powerfull.
That is why I said lighter energy work. I'm getting hands on Reiki training from my teachers Master in Dr. Mikao Usuis system. I have only had 2, of six attunements done in three months. I won't be given my first level for another 2. It's quite annoying, but I understand the wait.
But DD you are right. Real Reiki is a full scale nuclear fucking warfare in your meridians. Yet how many people do you see develop this much power with Reiki taught today. Some will give you a level 1, and 2 in two days.

Even though are opinions are different, saying it that way I can agree with you. It is faulty logic. In the terms of exercise science, what would make such a practice harmfull or non-benificial? I don't want to argue or debate, I really want to know why you feel the way you do.

I want to know where your getting your information from.
What organization are you a personal trainer with?
And do you specialize in Martial Arts Sports Conditioning?

Wushu Athletic Commision with the help of Beijing University show the benifits of using weighted items. Hand weights, ankle weights.

I really am trying to understand you, I'm not trying to be ignorant or a dick. I've taken your points, and given you mine. I just really feel that you're saying everyone who does these things are wrong, they don't know what their doing.

Don't you read my fucking post? I have never once said it made them succesfull, I just fucking told you they used it. Are they so ignorant to be some of the best conditioned athletes in the world, and yet they use things that are useless, or as you put it, that aren't as benificial?

In your own damn opinion it's not an effective exercise for martial artist.

Again, if it is not an effective exercise, or whatever you want to say. Why do so many fighters and Martial Artist include it in their training? Strongly used in Korean and Japanese arts to.

Don't skim through my post and manipulate what I say.
Show me one fucking post that I made that part of their training their main tool for success.
I gave facts of people using it as part of training,and you turn it into a load of shit.

You cannot say that their success rests only on weighted punching and just ignore all the other conditioning methods they use to improve punching power. In fact none of their success is due to weighted punching because as I have clearly explained, weighted punching is not an effective exercise for a martial artist.

All of those fighter do so much other conditioning it would make your head spin. Those men had(still have) a level of dedication and work ethic most of us could not even compare to.
Even world class athletes continue to do "old school" training regardless of whether or not it really works. These guys use som many different training exercises and modalities you simply cannot say that weighted punching is what got them where they are. In fact I've shown that weighted punching isn't why they were (are) world class fighters, and that their sport specific strength comes from other training.

I never said weighted punching exercises made them world class fighters. Yet it is part of many of their training regimens. It is something that works when done in proper means.


WARNING If Anyone Suggests That You Hold Weights or Use Wrist Weights While Punching, Ignore Their Post. They Understand Nothing About Joint Angle Specificity and Sport Specific Exercise 

I guess these guys know nothing about Joint Angle Specificity and Sports Exercise.

All of those fighter do so much other conditioning it would make your head spin. Those men had(still have) a level of dedication and work ethic most of us could not even compare to.


What is your point? You think I don't realize this. People were debating whether weighted punching with weights, hand weights or whatever were bad, good, effective. I pointed out that many professional fighters as well as martial artist use some form of weighted punching in their training. So if it was so bad, why the hell do they even incorporate it at all?


It works for some, and it doesn't work for others. Alot of it depends on how much time and enery you have to put into this type of training; learning the physics behind it, as to not get hurt. Give and take the amount of time it also takes you to heal sore muscles so you can continue the training.
Some will get hurt, some won't. This doesn't mean the training is bad. A little research does show that many great martial artist and fighters have used these things and have been fine.

I've read the book, and it is good. Other methods of self-healing that I have found quite usefull outside of qigong, for those who want to get into lighter energy work. Is to study basic Reiki, and the self-healing and cleansing exercises it has. Anyone can do it without an attunement to level 1, and the levels themselves are only good to those who earn them, and actually want to be healers.

Tito Ortiz, Ken Shamrock, Maurice Smith, Mas Oyama (when alive),Bruce Lee (when alive), just to name a few martial artist; and those who are fighters as well.  All use/used weighted gloves, ankle weights, etc. in their training regimen. Japanese Karateka in Okinawa are well known for incorporating some for of weighted punching exercises with weights in hand, or with rocks, etc.

Many Boxers, Martial Artist, as well as aerobic teachers, and fitness people have been known to use weighted gloves similiar to these. For speed, power, or whatever they wanted to use them for.

Bruce Lee preferred hand weights, yet many martial artist have found profound benifits from using such items.
