Martial Arts Sub Forums?
« on: April 19, 2009, 07:57:30 PM »
Sooo i was thinking. We have a lot of martial artists here, and martial arts is kind of a part of parkour.

Why not a sub forum for martial arts? possibly even the different types. (do a poll to figure out the most practiced on this forum)

What do you all think?  ;D

We really need a martial arts sub thread. Its still a art of movement as parkour is.
As for me I practice A bit of Akido, Jujitsu. Kendo (sword art) Mutaih (im sorry if  I cannot pronounce it right)
I just prefere all around mixed martial arts.

I'd like to see that too, I myself take martial arts like Brazilian JuJitsu, Krav Maga, and traditional arts like Tae Kwon Do.

I've done Judo all my life, done a few years of Brazilian Jujitsu, and dabbled in Kendo.

As a practitioner of a fairly practical interpretation of Karate, I never learned any of the stereotypical (but awesome) flashy moves that are associated with Martial Arts. I just can't seem to be able to get my foot to a reasonable height when doing a jumping 180 hook kick. I can get it to about head height (standing) on the ground, but suddenly I can't get my leg up when I add a small step and a jump. Any advice? I would be more specific but I have no idea what the problem is.

Could possible be that your over or under rotating. Usually when you look at one spot to kick and your kick isn't square to where your target is it's not going to get as much height. Since it's a jump kick it's easier to over rotate or not rotate far enough. Other than that it's probably just that your hips aren't flexible enough.

It's very similar, in training and philosophy, but it is not a martial art by definition.

Parkour is a Motion Art. Motion Arts and Martial Arts are both Physical Arts. That's the hierarchy I imagine, at least.

I agree, although I prefer "Physical Discipline."
