If you take part in martial arts and have done for a while you probably have a records e.g. 2 wins and 1 loss. Just wondering how you guys are doing with your competition game.

Feel free to post your records and give some details about them if you like :thumbup:

All the good guys who end up fighting at a high level will have lost more fights then they have won. Also, people may have lost all the unimportant matches and won the ones that really counted. So, in the end a record is meaningless in my opinion unless you are a pro.

I certainly agree with Maki on this one. As lord Munenori put it, "If you do the technique well twice out of three times, you will be pleased thinking you can do the technique well two out of three times. But, you then do the technique incorrectly twice in a row...the moment you forget what you are doing, is the moment when you will do whatever it is you try to do well ten out of ten times."

Rough paraphrase, but you get the point.

Unless you're Musashi, records really do not look so hot. Professionally though, as I find between my fellows we all have our little stories that we enjoy telling.

All that is important, is you retain emptiness of heart that the mind may be cleared.

I disagree with you guys...

I think a persons record in their last set of fights is what's important... it shows a lot.

For example Dennis Kang Won 7 and Lost 7 in his first 14 fights right? So really from a fan's point of view he is nothing special.

However he took those losses and came back, now being unbeaten in about 14 fights totallying 3 and a half years (Not watch Pride Bushido yet - so no spoilers, but on Saturday he also was in the semi-finals of the Pride GP), if you can do that (take your losses) and come back stronger, I think that's what makes you a good fighter / MMA practicioner. If you have a 10-12 record and your last 4 results are losses you ain't working or have been extremely unlucky! =/

Natetaco look into kickboxing or Muay Thai once you get through your first BJJ belts =) In my opinion, to do well in MMA all you need is a solid ground game and stand-up, personally I think Muay Thai & BJJ is the best there is... Maybe mixed with Tudo Vale so you get to mix the two together not just in your fights... It works for the likes of Anderson Silva, Chuck Liddell, etc.

I don't do it, but I hear it is one of the best arts for strikes & strike defence, esspecially in guard & mount. Thanks for the correction

I said that if you are a pro your record isn't meaningless. I made an open statement. Had I defined it a bit more I could understand why you don't agree. So, what exactly are you disagreeing with??

my record-

point fighting/tkd- 5wins - 1Loss
high school( wrestling official)- 20+ wins- 3 losses
kenpo point fighting/- 15 wins- 4 losses

I want to bvecome a boxer now so i can hit with accuracy, timing, knock out power etc. etc. and get some really good conditioning, and foot work. then i want to try mma. I think i would be considered well rounded at that point.....:strong:

Yeah, but I watched a documentary on Chuck's class and he teaches take down defence and strikes mainly. But yeah, I get what you mean, I guess that's just his school, obviously everythign is gonna be different with such a broad name. I actually do 'MMA' so I guess technically it is Vale Tudo... but still, I imagine Vale Tudo much more technical...

Kanshi, I was disagreeing with Maki Riddington, and 'records don't look that hot' you stated, I think a record is a big part of a fight build up... But yeah you get my general opinions by my essay :D

99-36 high school wrestling. It's always pissed me off that I couldn't squeeze one more win out to make 100. I had some injuries, naturally, though. Not the most impressive record, but we wrestled an absolutely brutal schedule (I wrestled once eventual NCAA champ and three other All-Americans, and thats just what they've done so far, I graduated in 2004).

I'm going to start into kickboxing next semester, and try to work that into some MMA experience, as my ground game is already pretty developed (the record is deceiving).

yeah people at BJJ recammended going Muay Thai and BJJ. Iv been doing wrestling for 2 years at school. Im pretty good at takedowns but groundwork in wrestling is totally different than BJJ. Doesnt it take like 2 years to get through your first belt in BJJ?

No... I got Red & yellow in 4 months.... I gave it up though, because MMA is more my thing and the MMA class & Jujitsu class was on the same night.

I've just gotta ask, as i don't watch tv/listen to the radio, so in many ways i'm living under a rock, but i've gotta know. Why is freestyle fighting/mma/ufc stuff sooo hot all of a sudden? A few years ago it was a relatively rare thing, seems like as of late everyone and their mother is starting into it. Hell I know 3 people in real life who are now doing it (quite half assed, of course), why the sudden surge in popularity?

I don't think it has been a "sudden" surge. More a steady increase in people realizing that its not just some brutal blood sport where the other dude is trying to hurt the other dude and thats it.
One of the main reasons why it started to become more "commercialised" is because when Zuffa bought the rights to UFC, they cleaned it up alot and had aspirations of making it main stream. Then came Pride when they saw the potential, now with competition between Pride and UFC producers, they both want to oust eachother and make "theirs" more special etc.. In ten years, MMA fighters will earn more than boxers by far. MMA is way more exciting than boxing, especially when the specatators have a clue about what is going on.

Oh, plus MMA is the bomb!!!

Oh, I agree in terms of proffessional fighters most of what you said, Reala.

I just meant more in terms of personal "In-the-dojo" or at small-scale tournaments, think TKD/Karate-Do.

I've met several people who, just because they might have a trophy or two, or trashed a couple of their untrained buddies think they are suddenly all hot.
Having had a head Sensei who was former Marine Corps.(And it showed when we did workouts *_*) I find them little trouble.

I dunno, perhaps from an observers perespective, indeed fight count is important.

But for me personally, I find keeping a record of who I might have saprred against just doesn't do anything more than mess up my focus.

Thanks though ^_^
