To be honest you can have as many medals you want, if you are and 100 lbs girl and an 200+ lbs guy choses to fight you seriously you will be overpowered by him easily if he is not an complete retard. He doesnt even need to punch you in the head, he can just punch into your arms/shoulders and/or kick you legs/ankles/knee

Since when does 200+ lb mean fat, I'm 99.9% sure he meant someone who is very tall and muscular.

Shounin is anime/manga mainly targeted for young boys (hence the Shounen Jump magazine).

Shoujo is anime/manga mainly targeted for young girls.

I still think its good even thought it was targeting young girls. The only annoying parts was Kagome and Shippo episodes. Also Kagome yelling for Inuyasha all the time got annoying.

Other then that, good anime, can't go wrong when you have a giant sword and yelling.

I didn't like Inuyasha regardless, but I'll try to remain unbiased while explaining.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with shoujo, but for Inuyasha, the shoujo elements took too much precedence for a show with so many shounen characteristics (headstrong overpowered main character, team of good guys with varied powers fighting demons in an alternate world, etc;). Inuyasha probably could have been objectively better if they made it 'more shounen', and focused on the battles much more than they did the romance. Don't get me wrong, romantic subplot is great to have in an anime, but it just doesn't fit well enough as the main focus of a show about demons and fighting. And of course, strong fans of the show would disagree with me saying that it should be more shounen, because they enjoyed the shoujo aspects, but I still say it could have been an overall better show (although with a very different fanbase).

Jeez, read all the comments below is people forgetting that most martial arts are defensive techniques. When I did them back in the day (not sure about other styles) I was taught to avoid a fight, but if it was going to happen, I would at least have something prepared. Techniques are not skill, they are hypothetical.

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.

You are extremely correct in most of what you said. If someone's kicks are capable of being blocked then they are doing something HORRIFICALLY wrong. HOWEVER, if you think it's a good idea to try to block then you are wrong too. At least you added dodging to it to but you can also check kicks as well.

Just as well, I seem to know a lot but I am not fully informed just yet. In fact no one is. You can only be more informed than others. Research things. Such as Muay Thai being invented by the Taiwanese rather recently in history. Also Kickboxing. I find it hilarious if someone says they take kickboxing. Kickboxing is a set of rules/a venue for karate guys to fight full contact. So if you take kickboxing you study a set of rules. Awesome XD

I dunno, I think kicks are blockable, but you have to be very selective about it. Mainly, I find that the key is to never, ever, EVER block the kick by the attacker's feet or shins.
When I was sparring my ex, I was able to block/deflect mainly her high kicks (she liked kicking for the head), partially because they required her to wind up, which gave me item to get a lot closer to her and block the kick about halfway down her leg. I'd put both arms into it, though.

There's some blocking with your outer thighs for lower kicks, but I agree that any kind of particularly fast medium-to-low height kick (which constitutes most kicks) can only really be avoided by dodging.

As a Taekwondo instructor those are just for demonstrations, not for actual defense. Self-defense, sparring skills for tournaments, and the flashy stuff is taught. The self-defense is completely part of Taekwondo, it's basically adapted from all forms of martial arts, at least at the school I teach at.

there's tons of useful jiu-jitsu out there, as well as karate. it all depends on who's teaching you, and what specific type of either martial art you're doing.

it's like shotokan karate vs say, *********, or kempo. the latter two are much more useful because shotokan is too based on forms and competitive(i.e. non-practical) fighting.

at the same time, jiu-jitsu can be amazingly effective if you learn the right kind. I once took a class with an instructor that was trained in both japanese and brazilian jiu-jitsu, as well as police self-defense and a bunch of other stuff. he adapted the grappling techniques and ground combat to an art completely focused on nothing but self defense, so no forms, no formal competition rules, nothing. it was amazing how effective that **** was.

Okay, I apologize for calling it bull. Some is fine. Brazilian jiu-jitsu however 100% is not. Regardless of who teaches it. And forms such as kata actually teach you to fight, there's just not too many people around that actually know how to read them. I must say one thing, that as I may criticize other martial arts, I must say that ANYTHING is better than nothing. A "street fighter" will still get their **** wrecked against any opponent of similar size who has had any form of decent training. I criticize things such as tae kwon do because it was FOUNDED in the 20th century. Now how good of a martial arts must it be if it was created in a time of guns? A real martial arts is one where the founder's lives depended on it, in a time where what you had to protect yourself was your arms and legs.

To be fair, Taekwando is pretty decent as an intro to martial arts, and it's somewhat more effective if you've got long legs. I've trained in it for about 5 years and it saved my ass in most fights I've been in (I used the term 'fight' very lightly, most or all of the people that I took on barely know how to throw a proper punch).

Another thing to note is that Taekwondo is really a mid-range style since you are probably never taught to us your knees, as compared to something like Muay Thai.

Just my two cent's worth of thought, hopefully no one's offended

Put any decent Krav Maga practitioner against a Muay Thai fighter in a no rules street fight, and while I have deep respect for Muay Thai, and it's a sport I practised for a long time, the Muay Thai fighter would lose.
However, in a stand up ring contest the Muay Thai fighter would have an advantage against any other martial art.

You are correct about the Krav Maga, HOWEVER, the time it would take to be able EFFECTIVELY go against a Muay Thai fighter would be a LOOOONG TIME. To be even decent in Krav Maga it takes about 5-10 years. Any less will result in a clinch and a sharp elbow to the back of the neck by the Muay Thai fighter (if you're talking anything goes).

Well, it depends, some people can learn it very quickly, and after all, Krav Maga utilises Muay Thai techniques, but while Muay Thai brings a lot of weighty hits and power, Krav Maga focuses on pressure points and soft spots, most notably the groin.

Some of the military systems are quick to learn, intense and very effective.

Wushu is good for what you stated, but to do just that and get in a fight will result in time wasted in training.

I try to compete in any open tournaments/competitions however, I do spar inside my gym and outside A LOT.

I mean if you take away the ground part of sanshou, it's another form of kickboxing. You should at least spar!

TRUST ME, if you learn both jiu jitsu and Muay Thai, you will be a monster. like more monster than an energy drink. Muay Thai is the most simplest (no stupid 900 kicks that will never work) and one of the best stand up oriented martial arts. also, if you can, try out brazilian jiu-jitsu, because it's more sparring oriented and (japanese?) jiu-jitsu is more toward the self defense however both are still good and worth however much you are paying.
