    My story is this, okay so I was bareknuckle sparring with a co-worker tonight and the thing is he is untrained and I am tranined and I was teaching him stuff but okay here is where things start to seem funny, when we started fighting Everytime I threw a perfect punch he blocked every single last one of them despite never being trained to block it's like it was natural to him but when he threw punches at me I could barely block them or react to them or understand what he was throwing he only hit me twice and I only hit him once. So tell me is MMA teaching me bad fighting habits with my defensive reflexes or is MMA or any fighting art a joke and no one should train in any because after what happened tonight it's kind of making me doubt any fighting art out there and I really don't think they are effective in a Street fight.

  • How do you know if someone put a bomb on your car?

    Where do you check to see if someone put a bomb on your car ignition or engine or gas tank? I'm worried because I'm scared people are out to get me and that someone may place a bomb on my car and when I start my car I will explode in it. This fear is consuming my life severely! Please help where do I look to see if it was planted?

  • Is it true that a short or small person can't beat a tall or big person in a fight?

    The reason I ask this is because I was listening to someone on YouTube and they said size and height and weight is The only thing that really matter in a fight and that the only way to beat big people is to just gain weight and lift weights.

If this is true then doesn't that mean that there is no hope of a short or small person to beat a tall or big person? If so how? Because when people mention be in and out that's easier said then done. A big or tall person can just counter you. People also say get in on the inside but that's easier said then done. A tall person is hard to breach so how to you beat them? A big person is invincible so how do you beat them?

  • Is it true that brute force is the only thing that matters in a fight?

    I hear all the time that skill,technique,speed is not enough to beat size,strength,raw power,and timing. But my thing is if that's the case how do you build brute strength and raw power if you weren't born with it?

People say punches are made not born I presume kicks are also included in this theory as well. But if that's the case then how can you build your punching and kicking power if you weren't born with it? How can you hurt someone or even protect yourself and family if you don't have those physical attributes like a strong person? What's the point of training or learning to fight if it's all useless and dosent improve anything about you? How? Just how are you going to beat these type of people? Please don't say avoid or run away because some fights you just can't avoid and running away makes you look like a coward plus I'm sure if your family was endangered your not just going to run away your going to try and fight and protect them. Also don't say fight dirty I'm pretty sure they can fight you dirty back. Also if they are tough fighting dirty is not going to work or hurt them and most likely people like this are tough. Last but not least it's a lack of man hood for males.

    Since a untrained street fighter can beat a trained fighter with sheer confidence and aggression and power shots and skills that they experimented and it worked on their own. Whats the point of training? If that'd the case then all training arts out there are crap boxing wont work Kickboxing wont work muay thai wont work wrestling wont work navy seals/military combat wont work pretty much any style out there won't work because if all it takes for you to be is a tough street fighter and just get into alot of street fights and gain fight experience from that alone then training is pointless! All a person got to do is workout, eat right, stay in shape, hit a punching bag, fight in the street alot and they will be perfect ultimate fighters. Martial arts and combat training are crap then! Prime example boxing! How is boxing a training if anyone can fight like one? All I think boxing is a honing mechanism not a legit art or skill. Boxing is just two street fighters putting on gloves and going at it instead of bareknuckle. If you don't believe me why when we watch two untrained people fight say like on YouTube or someone you actually seen in your life fight why to they already know how to throw jab,cross,hooks,uppercuts,bob,weave,slip... and they have never actually been properly taught these things in real life? All they did was imitate! Also since fighting is all about who got the best confidence out the two since fighting is more of a mental thing whats the point of training

Speed and skill is not important as power and strength and size is I hear alot of people saying this. So the question is how do you beat a big person? Because thats my biggest fear I train in MMA and I lack the confidence to fight someone bigger because It seems impossible to beat them and I want to be able to protect myself from them. People say all the time that power,size,strength is the only thing that matters alot of time so how do you beat them if they are invincible? People say that speed and skill dissent matter simply because we'll apparently in a fight all it takes if for one well placed punch to end it all which I believe to a extent and bigger people are the exception to this so how do you beat them whats the trick!? How!? Also people like to say since size don't matter why are there weight classes?

Whats the point of being you if your always being compared to Someone else? I don't want to be like no one else and I don't want no one to be like me I want to be the only me! I find life pointless and boring if everyone has a copy. How can we know for sure that there is no one else in the world like you?

    What I'm saying is I take Mixed Martial Arts but due to life circumstances I haven't been to practice in a while. MMA is my only passion but anyway let's stay on topic. Like I was saying I have been in it for six years I have improved alot but I still feel the same when I started. When I spar I still cant react in time and I can't tell when a punch and kick is coming to dodge. Even when I do dodge I still get hit. I was play fighting with my girl friend we were open hand boxing and when I call my self trying to dip under she still ended up hitting me in the eye. But I'm starting to doubt myself even more because the things is that's where I always struggled at in fighting. I want to get better at fighting so I can feel confident to defend myself when the time comes. Just getting hit by her made me lose even more confidence. I just want to approve this weakness in my fighting like I said martial arts is my only passion. So why do i still keep making these same mistakes what am I doing so wrong!? It's also like a bipolar moment some days I will do so well others I completely suck but majority of the times it's like I still don't do so well I remain the same. Please help I need some advice thank you!

    Why I ask is because I train in mma and I doubt myself and skills all the time and I'm afraid that mma wont work for self defense because everybody on the internet keep saying that sparring in real fighting are two different things and that sparring can not compensate for real fighting and thus it won't work in a real life situation against a bigger opponent. All these people on the internet with their article keeps saying that no matter what martial arts,speed,skill,smarts can never overcome strength,size,power and brute force so regardless the odds will always be in a bigger opponents favor and you have no chance to beat them. So tell me some how do you beat such a big monstrous opponent since no matter what you cant beat them because due to their size making them invincible. I'm scared in scared that when the time come I will fail if it comes down to it. How do I know my boxing,kickboxing,must thai,karate,etc will really come in handy if everyone on the net keeps saying so?
