What is the etiquette when attending a seminar outside of your own association?
For example, let's say the only suit you own is branded up with your club's logos etc. Do you still wear it, other do you how in a t shirt and bottoms instead? Or do you buy an unbranded gi just for such purposes?
Do you wear your normal belt? Mine means nothing outside of my association. I presume that's the same for everyone.
And for those of us more familiar with Korean terminology and etiquette, will we be left a bit stuck in a Japanese style event?
I would guess that most of us have some sort of rule in our licence which states that if we do anything to bring our club or our art into disrepute our membership will be cancelled.
MMA doesn’t seem to have anything like the same level of accountability though. And I’m not just talking about the professional’s that generate millions for their organisations, I’m talking local amateurs too, although I’m not going to go into detail there. Suffice to say if a TMA student did the same thing, they would be kicked out.
This is my first attempt in awhile to put a video together. Looking for some constructive criticism. The editing is a bit rough, unfortunately an Iphone is all I have to work with. Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
Hello to everyone, I have got a question for you. I know the karate is a civilian martial arts for self defense, but I was wondering if Is possibile in your opinion using kata techiniches like takedown, grapping etc take for example gedan badai no like block ecc, on Mma match o similitaries, eventually adapting them on different context?
I watch a lot of martial arts technical breakdown videos and was struck by some things in the following video, breaking down some facets of Conor McGregor's game, that chime with some of the kata and bunkai concepts Iain (and others) have brought to the fore in recent years. I love seeing these sorts of linked martial arts themes and commonalities.
I posted this question on another forum and got some very interesting responses.
Basically does your art have techniques that could be considered lethal?
Now, whereas many techniques could result in fatality such as basic punches and kicks. I am mainly referring to techniques that have the intention to cause great harm or even death.
As an example, I saw a instructor teaching a knife defence where he turns the knife back on the assailant and stabs him in the stomach, this was followed by a knee to the hilt of the knife to make sure it went deep enough.
In 2020 the Olympics are to be held in Japan for the first time and karate is to be included in these games, excuse me if this topic has already been discussed but I thought it had the potential to spark some interesting debate and posts.
The Olympic committee have decided to have karate in the Budo kan situated in the center of Japan, this event apparently is a probationary one that if successful will lead to it being included in future games and then one day it may become part of the main Olympics.
