    Default The Official TreeHouse Martial Arts Thread!

    I don't sense there is a great interest here in da House, but maybe I'm wrong.

    Stig and I were chatting a bit re bjj (brazillian jiu jitsu), and I think at least one of you Brits is into bjj, based on some posted pics.

    So chime in all interested parties and let's chat martial arts, boxing, bjj, mma, etc.

    Y'all probably know at least something about Connor McGregor, Irish mma sensation. There has been some talk of him talking on a world class boxer in a boxing match. Below is a vid of him sparring with some stud boxer. It looked interesting but their hand are so fast some of it is hard to see. So I put it on .25 speed and could then easily see all that was going on. Looked like CM got the best of him. Boxing looks like a lot of fun, at least the way they do it! Too bad about CTE...

    Martial Arts? Ive done some of that.

    I have broken one shoulder, one ankle, two breast plates and one rib.

    I did say I was sorry afterwards to each of them.

    What is CTE?

    Are you saying all that stuff happened in fights you've been in, Jim?

    Are MMA guys in good enough shape to go the distance against world class boxers? Maybe they would not need to?

    Interesting thread. They used to have a karate school in town. Lots of kids used to go.

    MMa and boxing are vastly different of course, but no doubt the cardio of top mma guys is every bit of that of top boxers.

    Uh, I was still wondering about your injuries mentioned, if you care to discuss, if not NP!

    No, none of that stuff happened in fights. Havent been in a fight since grade school.

    One breast plate was because I was surprised and smacked a guy in the chest, one was when trying to help someone pop his back, the rib was during a football game, the shoulder and the ankle was just screwing around, 'wrastlin. Personally, I have never broken a bone, well one of my own anyway!

    I read once that CTE is worse in games like American football and boxing. The damage to the brain comes in smaller doses, but there is more of it and it happens over a longer period of time.

    Apparently bare knuckle fighting is safer!

    Many people feel that top mma guys would crush top boxers in an mma fight (see Randy Couture vs James 'Lights Out' Toney) and the boxers would destroy the mma guys in a boxing match.

    Exactly, Jim. Stats show boxing is much more 'dangerous' than mma because the boxers are subjected to many more repeated blows and standing 8 counts etc. Mma fights end as soon as you can't intelligently defend yourself, or by submission.

    I edited my post to reflect my checkered past.....I did not mean to hurt anyone!

    It would make sense that that each type of fighter would dominate in their preferred discipline. Free for all? MMA I bet.

    I know I have said this before, but I can watch a boxing match, cant make it through a MMA fight.
