Martial Arts - The Lesser Used Styles

How do you think old school Ninjutsu or any Shaolin Monk would fare in the UFC?

This kind of stuff has already been discussed in the General MMA section (where this thread will likely be moved soon), but I see no reason it can't become a productive thread.


There are some pretty under utilized styles in MMA though. I think Judo will be more heavily used in the future for example.

And if Savate could be adapted to use perhaps the flat part of the foot instead of the tip (usually requires special shoes) that could be effective. Except you'd risk breaking your foot if you missed the target.


And you can go to youtube and check out the Fight Science episodes where they take practitioners of different martial arts (including Ninjutsu) and test them for comparison.

I want to see someone incorporate Mae Mai Muay Thai into MMA.

It's essentially Muay Thai but all of the blocks are done with elbows and knees instead of forearms and shins, shit's sick

that style is sick, it would be very entertaining inside the ring

The video was cool. I love seeing martial arts being practiced in their native land and in the most primitive methods

Ranpage used to try to block shots with his elbows but it was hard to block an he ended up getting punched in the face alot so now he uses the better arm block...

Those guys are pretty nasty. I could see that style being extremely effective. That speed and countering ability, theres no way you could hit them. I'd think a Wushu skilled fighter could do well in the same aspect.

Rampage obviously doesn't have the type of training those dudes have either, though. If someone was trained in the style competently I could see it being ludicrously effective being used by someone like Anderson or Lyoto. It would be like counter punching with your elbows without even throwing a punch o.O

I Have take Krav would never work it is based on ruthless cut throat tactics such as eye galuges low blows and others to detain an attacker as quickly as possible. Krav is strictly self defence style.

I would like to see a tai chi Bagua or wing chun fighter in the ufc. Tai chi gets a bad image as only a health style but that is very wrong. I have trained in krav kick biking karate and tkd and am doing tai chi now. I couldn't touch my instructor and offten times found myself either on the ground throw into a wall or up in the air. It would be interesting to see how someone like that would do.
