The fact that Wladimir Klitscho could hug his way to win after win keeps me up at night tbh... Clinching is difficult to manage as a ringleader. That's why, I assume, it goes unpunished. At one point, you need to allow infighters to infight(meaning when 1 hand is available, even though the other is holding - for example).. As per why it isn't punished? It's ...

What's what all the wrist grabbing? In violent situations (as opposed to competitive situations), your assailant is likely to grab you. Grab and hit is one of the most common attacks. Being number 2 behind the haymaker according to the statistics I have seen. Also grab and stab btw. If you have a guard or fence raised they'll grab it to control and ...

If you are 75 kg, then you should not have a problem throwing an opponent who is 102 kg with a basic hip throw. The major hip throw (ogoshi) is the first hip throw in the judo curriculum. It's simplest to start with throwing ogoshi slowly because ogoshi has the nice property that you can stop mid-throw. It's easiest to understand the mechanics while ...

Has anyone else fought the way Hamed did in his prime - i.e., the way I described above? Has there ever been another fighter like Prince Naz? Have there been fighters having a style like that? Surely. Have any of them been successful with it? No. That's why you haven't heard of them. The style is similar to why Roy Jones Jr. fell off so hard - you rely ...

I've found a key part of the learning process is experimentation. First, learn the basics to where you can do them consistently well. Not perfect, but good. Then play a bit with it. Change the angles, a little bit. Change the weight distribution. Change your timing of when you push off or drop your weight to get your strikes in. The point of this is ...

There are plenty of grappling attacks that start from wrist grabs. Wrist grabs are a basic element of eliminating your opponent's attack/defense. It's much easier to attack if you can move the opponent's arms out of the way. Wrist control is one way to start this. Examples: Jimmy Pedro (judo) on grip fighting with wrist control wrestling takedowns more ...

I would like to offer an answer from traditional aikido point of view (Iwama ryu/Takemusu). There are lot of grabs on body or clothes: kata dori, kosa dori, hiji dori, morote dori, riote/hantai dori, katate dori, mune dori, sode dori, eri dori and so on, plus grabs from the back ushiro eri dori, ushiro kata dori.... you get the picture. Grabs are ...

I hypothesize that it is an outgrowth of sword culture. In a CQC situation, a common tactic would be to control the opponents sword hand (preferably before they can even draw a weapon). A lot of disarming techniques begin with a wrist grab to prevent the weapon from being brought to bear against you. The holistic approach to martial arts would include ...

It can be very hard to impossible to willingly off-balance an (maybe sub-conciously) uncooperative, stronger opponent, i.e. to have enough kuzushi. That is where Judo (in the very sense of the expression) begins. And as Judo is Jujitsu specialized on throwing (among other things), I will answer purely in this context. I personally had the experience with a ...

The best option would be to ask your instructor to watch what you do with both the opponents you mention in your post. He will be able to check that you're doing the technique correctly and if you're doing it differently for the two opponents. Alternatively (and if you're allowed to) have someone video you performing the technique on both opponents and see ...

I was actually doing some research on body knockouts last year, and I can give you some of the information I've dug up. It's not as detailed as what you're looking for ("best methods"), but it is some useful information nonetheless. Liver, Location, Access The liver sits under the right side of the ribcage. It's mostly, but not entirely protected by the ...

There is always a counter technik; also inside the Aikido (other than punching and kicking) For every technique there is a twin technique which could be used as counter, like ying yang principle. The concept is called Kaeshi waza. Of course I would not suggest to resist the sankyo grip if your opponent/partner tori has solid control over you, it might harm ...

Is there any reason to believe that Ingle's fighters do better than average in avoiding serious, lasting damage from injuries in the ring? I wouldn't say so. The "hit and get hit" isn't a mantra that is NOT widely taught in boxing. Everybody aims to do this, just in different ways. Some are, obviously, better at it than others though. The style of f.e. ...

Being rooted means you can absorb/resist some force without moving. A dancer can be balanced on pointe, but this is not a good stance for rooting because they are easily unbalanced. Balance is necessary but not sufficient to be rooted. Fighting stances will have the feet separated and knees bent to help absorb force. But this is not the end of the story. ...

You cannot condition your hands to make combat effective spear-hand attacks, with or without risk of injury. Hand conditioning is a bad idea in general (I spent years abusing my own body in pursuit of such an edge). Mechanically, and realistically, there is nothing to be gained from trying to jab your straight fingers at an opponent with the full force of a ...

Looking at the use of nukite in karate katas has led me to the belief that you simply should not use a spear hand as a strike. There isn't a single example of it being used as a strike against an opponent in any of the kata I practice, though there are examples of what appears on the surface to be spear hand strikes (and they are often trained that way). All ...
