Martial arts never prepare you for a real fight unless you are doing it for so many years. People always assume that since they have been doing taekwondo and are a green belt or whatever that they will be able to destroy anyone. Unfortunately they can never take a hit from someone who knows how to throw one. The only time fights really happen are in bars too and your 'Forms' won't help you in any way. It all depends on how naturally keen you are/ how much pain you can take. I fought against some form of karate(cant remember the type, it was an agreed fight, UFC) and when it started he tried to do some flippy tornado kick and I moved in close and ducked his head height kick, floored him with one punch. I don't like how cocky people get just for practising martial arts. It's a dangerous habit.

Ahem, not completely right.
While there are showy martial arts, and ones that are more dancing then fighting (non contact sports I'm looking at you), you do not want to mess with people who are trained in true full contact ones like kyokushin karate or krav maga. Even aikido gives you a really good edge over someone who isn't trained and relies on his muscle and "punch to the head" tactics.
You will also note that martial arts i named are all very low in motion. There are no fancy flippy kicks. And if you tried to move close to someone trained in either of those and then throw a standard punch you'd find yourself lying down wondering where did all the pretty stars come from.

Everyone is yelling at how martial arts are **** in a street fight.

And I'm sitting here wondering what are the odds that my Kendo + Iaido training would actually come in handy one day. (Like seriously, what are the odds that I'll be lugging a katana or anything that can be wielded like a sword when I get thrown into a fight?)

I always carry my shinai, you should do the same. If carrying a wooden one is too big carry a collapsible metal one.

watch as it's tae kwan do. yeah, great help that'll do you IRL. go take karate or jiu-jitsu or something that actually works.
User avatar #71 to #57 - luidias (12/03/2012) [-]
pfff, don't even give me that.
The 6 months of tae kwan do that I took were completely useless. I switched over to kempo karate later on, and that was a much better martial art IMO.

I remember sparring with my ex, who's a black belt in tae kwan do(which she got in a measly foru years, mind you, compared to the ten or so that it SHOULD take), and my sorry yellow-belt ass had no problem schooling her.

I think the problem is that tae kwan do focuses almost entirely on hard techniques, as opposed the the soft techniques taught in other martial arts. more specifically, it focuses waaaaaay too much on kicks, which however powerful they may be, are extremely impractical in an actual fight. Sparring with my ex, every one of her kicks was either easily blocked or dodged outright.

don't get me wrong, tae kwan do is excellent exercise, and you're better off with it than without it, but of all the martial arts I've tried, tae kwan do is the least practical.
