The Art of Tai Chi (Popularity: )
What is the art of T'ai Chi and how is it practiced? T'ai Chi is a Chinese system of boxing exercises and meditative movements that dates back to ancient times. Meaning "supreme ultimate fist," Tai Chi Chuan originated as a form of martial art. But rather than relying on the swift aggressive kicks and power punches that are seen in various other forms, it incorporates slow, thoughtful, nuanced movements to ...

UFC 107 Analysis and Prediction For the BJ Penn Versus Diego Sanchez Fight (Popularity: )
Without a doubt, BJ "The Prodigy" Penn is the best 155 pound in the world. There is no one in the division that can touch him. Most 155 pound fighters can't even touch him BUT Diego "Nightmare" Sanchez is not a 155 pound fighter. It might be surprising to most that you would choose Diego Sanchez to beat BJ Penn but he has problems with bigger fighters and he has problems ...

Rampage Jackson Vs Wanderlei Silva 3, Why Rampage Will Lose Again (Popularity: )
Rampage Jackson is an infighter and always will be. If you watch his knockout of Chuck Liddell it was from close range (punching range and closer). If you look at their first fight (Chuck and Rampage's) you'll see Rampage dominate Chuck by smothering him with this inside fighting ability. This is why he'll lose (again) to Wanderlei Silva. Wanderlei Silva has a Thai clinch that is deadly. From inside (where the fight ...

What Went Wrong With Philippe Nover's Ultimate Fighter Finale Fight (Popularity: )
Let me just say this to start out, this isn't necessarily just his fault. It's fault of many Jeet Kune Do practioners and around the country. In Jeet Kune Do, we talk about four ranges of fighting: punching, kicking, trapping, and grappling. Technically wrestling falls in-between trapping and grappling and is both at the same time. That's what we call a subsection of a range. Unfortunately, it's an area that ...

Why St Pierre Dominated Matt Hughes in Their 3rd Fight (Popularity: )
St. Pierre's secret weapon against Matt Hughes was a submission chain. It was a sweet one in fact. Matt never had a chance, because St. Pierre had an interesting business model for fighting. Here it is. I crack Matt in the face, and when he's woozy. I'll catch him in a sub, and then we defends that one, I'll wrap him in another. In a sub chain, if you don't catch one, ...

Doug Wilson and Sparring (Popularity: )
I have only recently come across the episode on the history channel that shows two MMA fighters visiting, training and at the last minute sparring with a couple of our own shihan. I have also read with interest the many posts regarding the episode - some positive and some a direct disrespect for Doug and the other shihan. Perhaps one thing that is forgotten is that the match towards the end ...

Disappearing is Harder Than You Think (Popularity: )
Now the title of this post will no doubt create much controversy, but what i am talking about is the ability to remain undetected whilst in the heat of battle or training. To disappear in fact does not necessarily mean exploding in a puff of smoke but more understanding timing and distance to make oneself invisible using ninpo Taijutsu. Perhaps a better way to explain this is to be able ...

Deadliest Style of Martial Art (Popularity: )
Here's a different way of looking at the whole what is the deadliest style of martial art debate. Who cares!? Seriously. I don't buy into the whole debate and here's why. If you did a poll of thousands of martial artists you might get a list like this Brazilian Jiu-jutsu and ground fighting Krav Maga and reality based self defense systems Boxing, Muay Thai and cage fighting Ninjutsu, Kung Fu, Aikido and other Eastern based martial arts Modern ...

While becoming an expert in Tae Kwon Do can take years of practice and dedication, a knowledge of a few basic stances is needed in order to form the foundation of this martial art.
