Me too 😂🤣
Right? I never loved being short, as much until I did BJJ, it makes it harder to escape and harder for them to get a good grip lol Also, me being more flexible then guys made me dominate!!
Me too since I'm short but I'm not too strong so guys would kick my ass in a nice way 🤣🤣
My fav too
Not a martial art but cool
Until they got confiscated for all the holes I put in the side of the garage. 😂I'm bummed they got tossed when I tried to get them after I moved out. 😕
Well he got his black belt from Eddie Bravo who has his own style
Once I reach level 12 I will graduate from Joe-Jitsu as a Master of Hong-Kong-Phoo. I will then transition into the Doctoral Level study of Tae-Kwan-Joe, which according the Sensei is the penultimate in fighting arts.
Forgot to add it 😂😂
I agree it's not really good at all in a real, but it's still an art. Has some good qualities but it's same as aikido, just not very useful
I Wrestling in school for 5 years, I liked it. I think boxing is a good combo with it.
So your like the guy at the bar in every Steven Seagal movie who throws a punch all mad and gets thrown?
not exactly. haha. I'm more like the guy who drops all the douches that try to show off for their girlfriends at the bar by how tough they are.
The way you described it made it sound even more like those type of movies
hey, i gotta keep up with all the guys bragging about their fighting styles too. haha. These questions almost always end up with people arguing over which style is the best and which one is invincible (BJJ). It's funny
It's true unless the fight never gets to the ground
lol here we go again.
Happens in ufc all the time. Don't get wrong my fav is bjj too but a good kick to the head or well positioned punch and that's it
i'm in agreement with you
