I got a new one that I've thrown out on a couple of discussions: Shorinji Kempo. There aren't very many pros who use it, but that's just because of the religious signifance behind it. However, the one Kempo guy that I'm sure you all know is Chuck Liddell. I guess it works.

chinese martial arts

have any of you guys thought of training in the old school chinese ma's such as praying mantis, wing chun etc. i'm sure some of the short fist styles would compliment your mma training. and if you could find an instructor willing to teach you such things as iron fist technuiqe a few broken jaws would soon come round lol.

hmm true there are some good techniques in the chinese arts biggest problem there is finding an instructor who will peicemail train you in the useful stuff to MMA the chinese tend to be purists and you must repsect that, hence thier problem with bruce lee the fact he was teaching the round eyes and such.

yes a can see what you are saying. I think i am lucky in that way as i have two close friends that have trained and are instructors in both wing chun and praying mantis. so any traning we do is in my garage and is not in any completly structured way. one of them is going to ireland next month to stay and train in iron fist for 6 months. worst bit about is having to abstein from sex and masturbation for entire length of the training. not something i could do

well lets just say i have met the guy who my friend will be traing with and seeing him punching full force into a bucket full of steel ball bearings is a sight to see. and even with an open fist he can use his training to obliterate the insides of a melon without leaving a mak on the outside. so i would think hat if someone had this training you could severly mess someone up in any grappling situation within a few inches of hip movement

I have studied Wing Chun for almost 5 years and did about 4 months of Southern Praying Mantis....2 systems design for pure combat...

Now Im into MMA and my wing chun training translate very good....it has to be modified to fit the rules but the principals of fighting are there....

it also helps me in learning kali, boxing, bjj, and other styles...

krave maga is not a sport but a self defence system

this is not somthing worth learning for MMA since most of the tekneques is illegal due to the rules.
You also learn knife defens and gun defence.

EDIT: might I add that my knowledge about this system is very limeted, so the info I gave you could me inacurate.
But its just my oppinion

Inmortality is to live your life doing good things, and leaving your mark behind.
