The End For Now

In January I thought that this would be a good idea.

It's February 5th, and I realize now that it's not such a great idea.

Initially the site was met with a lot of response, a lot of traffic and interesting comments emailed me to me.

I realized quickly that I couldn't do it on my own, so I went out and searched for writers and enthusiasts.

What I realized was that no one wants to write or talk about kung fu for free.

What happened to passion and just wanting to spread the word?

I'm a freelance writer, I write on a lot of sites for free. Is it stupid? No. I get paid to do what I love, and it affords me chances to speak to others for free often, but I have a passion for it. If no one paid me, I'd still write.

So why not continue here?

I write 15 blogs. I'm also a freelance ghost writer, affiliate marketer, social analyst and getting a master's degree. I have my hands on a lot of writing and when something doesn't work, I have to prune fast to save my sanity.

To writers out there that wanted to work on this site, my apologies. I can't afford to pay you $5 to $50 to $150 for 500 words. As it stands now I average around $1.50 - $3 a post for 500 words. But I'm willing to write for free. No one that messaged me showed me that they are passionate enough to do this for free or to help build something with a future.

That's ok.

I don't need to be here and you don't need to be here either. Perhaps you can start a site, as there are millions out there.

Street Fighting Versus MMA in Epic Video Compilation

Could MMA be a positive thing in street fights?

What about boxing?

Well, in this compilation from Thecombatsystem.com, you get to see some clips of real street fighting with an emphasis on MMA moves and real technique.The answer to street fighting versus MMA is seen in this video below.

My friends, growing up, always told me that kung fu and mma technique would not translate well into the streets and as it turns out, more people are using it than ever before.



I am not advocating street fighting, but if you are in a self defense position, you would much rather use MMA and controlled chaos than to deal with fisticuffs in another manner.

The best part about this video is the Police fighting in some real technique. Look out for the Police at around 2:34...wow. Police are no joke in some places.

Anyways, MMA vs Street Fighting, apparently the winner is clear to see.

Ronda Rousey Ultimate Fighter Fights Better Than Most Men

ronda rousey xxx feet
There is a lot of chatter on the web about Ronda Rousey. She's one of the most searched woman on the internet. Most of the words that I've been seeing is about Ronda Rousey feet, or Ronda Rousey naked, and she has posed without clothes on. Well, that was for Sports Illustrated. The photographs showcase some serious strength, in her form. Even though most men are curious about her love of men (she's straight guys), there's more to her than her looks. She's one hell of a fighter, and some may even know her from her Olympic Judo fights not MMA.

Ronda Rousey Makes Judo Legit By Fighting Like A Girl


Ronda Rousey is not your average UFC fighter. Even if she was a man, she would be one hell of a fighter, due in large part to her many years of training for MMA. However, you have to remember that Judo is not 100% about strikes. It is about throws, and momentum. There is some striking, but that's not the focus. 

It's for that reason that her fighting is so dangerous. That professional skill set of hers is on display during her fights, but it was formally introduced in her Olympic matches not MMA



If you want to start training in this discipline, whether you want to study MMA or you want to study Judo specifically. Check out this MMA training guide, and you too can fight like a girl. If Judo and fighting like a girl means having the prowess of Ronda Rousey, then I'm in. Are you?

3 Common Elements of Grappling MMA and Beyond

elements of mma
MMA is not just about ground and pound. Sure, that’s exciting, but there are more nuanced creations that require a bit of focus. Taking a look at 3 elements of Wing Chun Kung Fu can definitely shed light on this. When you realize that there are universal truths to the ideas of MMA in contrast to Wing Chun Kung Fu and other disciplines, you see that all forms can be useful in the cage.

The following 3 elements of MMA can help you understand training similarities in martial arts.

Striking Kicks and Fists in Wing Chun Kung Fu

This fast and furious style allows you to strike and defend with your legs and feet. In MMA, this is seen when two fighters start a match. These are universal, with the exception of pure Greco-Roman wrestling.

Throwing and Submissions

Whether you’re studying MMA or you are specifically looking at Judo, Karate, or even Wing Chun Kung Fu, you will find that there are throws that can be utilized at times, although each discipline has their own balancing act.

The Challenge of Balance

Challenging balance is done through take downs, whether charged at the legs or through strikes. Once a person is down, the striking continues or submission ensues.

It has been said that the above 3 elements of grappling MMA and even disciplines like Wing Chun Kung Fu have their weaknesses. It’s for that reason that one should understand the importance of MMA training to not only give you full cardiovascular abilities, but to also have a balanced approach to martial arts as a whole.

3 Incredible Reasons Why Jackie Chan Hates MMA

jackie chan hates mma
Jackie Chan is not a fan of MMA. You may not think so, considering that Bruce Lee, Donnie Yen, and many other martial artists have gone on record to say that they can appreciate the training, and fighting that is involved with MMA grappling.

But what about Jackie? The undisputed king of martial arts cinema, trained with the likes of Bruce lee, and reinvented the Hong Kong action film, should by all intents and purposes love this form of extreme sport. MMA fans may be surprised to know that Chan is not a fan of MMA at all. There seems to be 3 reasons why.

3 Reasons Why Jackie Chan HATES MMA

MMA is TOO Violent

Jackie stated in an interview that it’s too violent. The heart of MMA is not to kill your opponent, but it is to take them down, knock them out or make them tap. Some of the most brutal battles in the cage are in fact violent, and stunning.

MMA Lacks Respect

Chan also stated in articles and interviews that the heart of martial arts training is about respect. Respecting the opponent and when they are down, stop. There’s a certain line you don’t cross, and that’s crossed in MMA. Remember the Silva fight? It lacks respect for the downed fighter.

MMA Is Not True Martial Arts

Jackie may be right. MMA has never really been an example for the idea that it is the one true martial art. It’s “mixed” which means that it takes liberally from all disciplines. So one cannot blame the entertainer for saying what he says.

MMA is NOT the same as what Jackie Chan practices. Remember, he’s all about striking and defense, not necessarily offense. It’s evident in his movies, and through his discipline.
