The difference between training and martial arts fighting

How to dot the i

Recently I was reviewing the sales charts for my book on Amazon.com, when I realized I finally get a review of the reviews on Amazon. After reading this review, I was humble and dumb-founded. The customer, who has reviewed my book on military fighting knives and hand to hand was apparently a practicing martial artist.

It seemed one of the "know it all" types as well. Although most of his review of the layout of my Paper can be placed first, I was amazed at his ability gross ignorance in not knowing the difference between the training of combat and war. His words: "Even if the author can know what is going to do this book, you may well already . If you have a certain type of MA-class for any length of time that it was something of value, then you would learn more if not half of these techniques to combat knife. "I agree with him.

If you have a certain > Class of martial arts for a period of time is worth nothing, after all, you can learn half of the techniques described in this book. Although I clearly in the book that my attempt is not to teach certain techniques, but the techniques, principles such as driving a vehicle home, and I must admit that you can learn the techniques of many is not only my book is limited . This guy "Cliff" is an example of how many can not distinguish the difference between> The martial arts and combative training.

The distinction is the difference

Training before fighting actually able to distinguish between a martial art or do they reflect the source of today's martial arts. The term "martial art", refers to a war like the art, martial war. It 's true that long ago in the design of today's martial artsmany systems and styles are born of military exercises and time SWAT. During the past without the aid of modern weapons and firepower the soldiers were forced to fight with sticks, swords, daggers, spears and intervene often hand to hand. Warriors at that time tried both systems began their armed struggle and unarmed developed, just like today. They understood that military units have muscle memory in their tactics to win electionsand saw the need for regulated systems to combat. The methods and techniques of days required to get the chance to go by horse and break or penetrate the armor of wood. It 'pretty obvious that it would be obsolete in today's environment against these techniques. have been passed down through generations and centuries of ancient art from master to pupil and teacher to student. The effective and powerful fighting training once for the elderly isAntiquities.

Today, the ancient techniques of the samurai and the fight against the monks of China, the world can be seen from a practical training room past the window. The old forms and techniques, tactics of battle once popular practice has been manipulated media and business ideology. Many practice the ancient martial art for a variety of reasons. Some of their reasons are for the same reasons for which training has been developed. People practicefitness, security, and hobbies. Another train of preserving art easy.

After the Second World War, the West was enthusiastically introduced to the martial arts., Sailors and airmen were soldiers the martial arts of Japan and the Philippines given and wanted to learn. Many of the teachers or local guru saw the opportunity to make a buck from gullible Westerners and started teaching the martial arts version of irrigated land. Often teachersprefer to train and to add, complicated and expensive techniques of striking the curriculum. It 'been the flash that would sell the new Western market. Soon Hollywood was making movies with actors like Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris demonstrate their skill and athleticism on the screen.

Belt ranking systems have added new students feel as if they were on and not give up. The techniques of the past for fighting old has been reduced to zero onStunts with a value of self-defense. Many of the techniques that would hide the pride of the warriors of the past by the simple process of supply and demand is lost. Modern technology and the weapons only to lose the industry supports the practice combat techniques and martial arts to become a lucrative, but challenging. Today, we have martial arts company to the customer about their programs known as "black belt plans."

People are forced to contractwho can not afford, for a time until they get their black belt violation. During the early 20th century, the degree Black Belt was respected by many in support of combat power. Today this place has lost a lot of respect. Too often we hear of beating a black belt who was a boxer or street fighter. Too often students white belt to completely destroy their "Black Belt" Karate or Kung Fu Master in sparring in the gym.Today, the sport of mixed martial arts is to have shown that martial arts of the old methods are outdated, even modern education today. MMA athletes of today, that art does not take any band learns martial arts would be more in the half of the practitioners of traditional martial arts.

Traditional martial arts are often based on archaic methods of philosophies and spiritual formation of a more primitive time. Where MMA athletesrely on up to date perforation and ideology of scientific training. much more is now known by the general population on issues of psychology, physiology, anatomy, physics and economy of movement. And 'the absence of modern science, the much deprecated by the traditional martial arts and inefficient to do. Essentially it is the tradition that makes a lot of martial arts training methods inefficient for effective e. Now that we have foundmartial arts, combatives, we should compare with the current modern.

The militant training now is a product of the military machine. Today's military is more efficient and productive than any in history. The philosophy of dealing with the least number of units of the war machine. War Colonel William Fairbairn and Eric Anthony Sykes trenches began to develop new types of training for soldiers in one of his experiences in Shanghai and World War II Close Quarter Battle (CQB) or close combat was the norm in the war and the soldiers are fighting in the trenches need to be able to kill quickly and efficiently, and their opponents unable to move. The two men realized that they needed through which to develop a system of training or experience in the ideology of education that will enable troops without prior martial arts to the masses to learn from hand to hand combat fast a few days, not often years> Training in martial arts. This practice was quickly learned not only that, but he kept well-trained and faster. Soldiers at the front and behind the lines needed to be able to react without thinking, based on muscle memory. In the fight against heart rate over 180 beats per minute and all motor skills go out the window.

Fairbairn and Sykes clear that many of the extravagant "pressure points" used in traditional art martial artswould not be effective. They recognized that the pressure points has no effect for two reasons. You can not feel the enemy under the influence of adrenaline and two, the soldier is more likely, not necessary for the ability of the motor skills to hit the target. Therefore, the militant modern training was easy to remember, simple and focused on simple movements. To combat soldiers are often too sleepy and fed theThe techniques taught are necessary in order to leave no physical strength or athletic ability. Today's combatives are often known for the arts fight looks dirty, in non-traditional martial. The code of the warrior, no longer apply today chivalry is dead. While the fighting desensitization training techniques are taught as a series of fighters, which is due to the student body not only learn the strike with weapons of structurally stableBody. A soldier can not afford a broken hand and foot on the battlefield. It is these reasons, the militant training is far apart from many of the traditional martial arts.

In summary,

The traditional martial art practiced today was actually training to fight for the military, it's time. As the weather changes, so has the training. Society was formed more moral Values and codes have been changed. The world is not run like a spiritual or involved with the mystic, as was thought at the time were the traditional martial arts. Their time, have a form of media art, surrounded in mystery and legends of the past, replaced by modern techniques effective when fighting. Training is now fighting efficiency is entirely based on modern science and the need. E 'of the utmost importance to the fight against> Become rules to keep it.

- Easy to general principles should be taught

- Do not rely on force or athletics

- The objective is to destroy what the customer contact

- Efficiency and economy of movement

- Be able to be learned and applied in a very limited time (days or weeks)

The final

Combatives training today, mostcertainly contains many of the techniques you learn martial arts in the traditional when to attend classes for a period of time. You might think of steak as two types of training. And 'full-fat food, which is unnecessary and could clog the arteries, the other is a stylish hybrid that keeping only the necessary nutrients it contains itself. After reading the review for this guy "Cliff" I immediately went to his profile to learn more about his point of view,I could consider it, where hes coming from. I wanted to know if your bashing of my book came out of arrogance or ignorance. When he was a boy blurb asked about his interests, his interest was phrase.This contained a "Wing Chun and the variety of ways, it is written." I soon realized that fact and the number of books with titles like "Kung Fu Caine" With reference to the TV series Caine (Kung Fu) that this guy is not very familiar with the differences between martial artsArts and combative training. 'S why I wanted to write this article, to show with my best efforts, the comparison of martial arts fighting, is like comparing apples and oranges.
