Fobby that is quite true. I just wanted to challenge Underfeatedbum for the statements he made. He has asked a question that was answered and now just makes stupid statements. How would you test a Martial Arts effectiveness Fobby? Can it be done?

Great question Killer Karl, I dont know that a Martial Arts effectiveness can be tested against each other personally due to the different techniques used and how hard it would be to find equally matched opponents. Eg: Wing Chun has only just in the last 2-3 years introduced ground fighting in their curriculum cause they have always believed that they would never go to ground!..(huh?), yeah I know how that sounds, but very true apparently (Kickboxer Magazine 2003). I have yet to encounter a "Kick Boxer" that can fight on the ground at ALL cause it wasnt intended to "Go to the ground." So unless we challenge each Martial Art using the same techniques only(eg: kicking vs kicking, punching vs punching) I dont think it is possible, no matter how far you search I believe if they are limiting themselves to ONLY their styles without incorporating any other Martial Arts this will only be a pointless arguement forever and ever. I did however join this discussion cause I really would like to know some "JUSTIFIED" opinions on this matter.

Fobby,
I personally think that sreet fighters may have the best approach. They simply test techniques through fighting and even strategies. They learn from actual combat and usually pay dearly for their mistakes. However these men and woman are thugs and arent restricted by moral codes or discipline from Martial Art training. In a training setting we can't legally or morally do to our training partners what a streetfighter can and would. It wouldn't be good form to bite your training partner's cheek off now would it.
But there are many trainers who are focused on this problem and are making waves. Rick Spain comes to mind as he was willing to combined other Martial Arts into his system and create a new one.
Regards Karl

"i have heard wing chun is extremely dangerous and powerful which 1 is better"

why start a thread asking this, than half way through saying you have done both Muay Thai and Wing Chun and you think Wing Chun is better?

either you are lying, stupid, or both.

Have to agree with you Scottya. Where is underdefeatedbum anyway? He spoke shit then disappeared. Hey Scottaya do you train I've never asked? Terry does now and this has improved his photo taking as he is learning to read other fighters moves and anticipate them. What you you think?
Cheers Karl

I have to say that it has helped me 110%... when you train and watch other fighters you start to predicted their moves, the best thing is when you know the "BIG GABOSH" (Comment from M.S) is coming my finger is ready on that trigger.

but you kids can not learn muay thai because of all the conditioning it will ruin there frame and they wont grow to there pottential i personally think wing chun is better


hi m8 im 17 and been doing muay thai for 4 years and lifting weights. it is very intense drilling and conditioning but it hasnt affect my frame or growth. i think if you are looking for the most effective combat art out of muay thia and wing chun . the answer is muay thai. i also did kyokushin karate for 2 years and found it alot softer than muay thai
