I know it sport jiu jitsu and most of the video won't apply, but I am looking at it for and example of body slams. Start to look at around .53 you start to see how body slams can effect people. Some don't get knocked out but it definitely puts the guy on top in a more advantaged position.
It's been a while since I've posted in these forums, but I'm at an interesting transitional period in my martial arts training and I thought it might be worthwhile to open a forum topic. A disclaimer: this post is somewhat self-indulgent, so consider yourself forewarned.
Karateculture.com recently asked me to do an article about the use of pressure points inside of MMA. I looked around to find a good starting point, and I figured what better way than to look at some of the best knock outs in the UFC. I found a video on YouTube of the Top 20 UFC Knockouts, and broke it down hit by hit. I compaired what point was used and explained how to find it. It was amazing to slow down the video and watch these fighters hit pressure points. Of course a top favorite was Stomach 5, because of how easy it is to use it.
Hey gang! My training group was playing around with the application of gedan barai in different contexts last night as part of a project we're working on to use karate as a bridge into range for our wrestlers (my current playgroup is heavily based in judo/jujutsu). One of our crew decided she wanted to do an impromptu film session, and we wound up stitching some of the clips together. Let me know what you think!
Edit: I'm sorry, but I'm not sure what the appropriate format for linking the video is- if there's something I should change please let me know! :)
I didn’t know where to put this because it’s really not a topic of discussion per say. Therefore, I figured the general topic board would be best.
I just wanted to share my enthusiasm for the fact that I am extremely excited to finally be able to attend one of Iain’s seminars in Grand Prairie TX. on January, 29, 30 & 31. And… to make things even better, my Sensei will be flying out from California to join me… what a great start for 2016!
An interesting video comparing kata bunkai and MMA fight footage. You may recognise the guy whose footage they have used at 26 seconds :-) Personally, I think that karate can stand alone and does not need to validate itself through comparisons with MMA. However, there is no doubting the popularity of MMA and the efficiency of its training methods so I can see why someone may wish to make the comparison in order to point to how karate can and should be practised.
