bruce lee didnt do traditional kung fu ... not ever since he lost to an english boxer, he then came to the conclusion that not one style is complete so he invented jeet kun do

bruce lee's jeet kun do composed of 5 styles ... i know 3 of them lol british boxing, tiger kung fu, wing chun

but there are better mixes nowadays ... also every kung fu stylist ive ever fought didnt last long ... theyre fast and all but when you get hit they dont hurt you that much ... they over complicate all their moves too ... plus there is no bodyweight behind the attacks so even if they're fast, rope a doping will get you in there and its more or less over

they only kung fu stylists ive fought that actually rocked it back were wing chun and praying mantis ... the mantis guy almost beat me

anyway .... i do boxing and hapkido incase you're curious ... im also a newby to vale tudo

straight, lol ive actually defeated quite the number of martial artists using just boxing, it gets flamed people say it doesnt use legs ... the thing is .. we use our legs but in a different way, no other martial art can get you evasion and leg work like boxing can and trust me on this lol ive been around the block, plus we're stable and we add bodyweight to every attack, i once ducked under a roundhouse kick and hooked my mates inner thigh with a fuul twist ... ... .. yeah he didnt wanna get up after that, well he couldnt for a good half hour

yeh but its still kung fu. theres so many types of kung fu that i'm pretty sure that bruce lee did one form or the other of it before turning to improvising to Jeet Kung Do. and i haven't been award that he had lost to an english boxer...but who can blame him?

yeah the footwork is great, though in any dangerous self defense fight boxing wouldnt do you to good, you'd do better with muay thai

yeah true but out of those hundreds of styles of kung fu ... less than 10 have been recommended for self defense, flipping about and fighting are 2 different things, yeah i know people tend to underestimate boxing, but in reality even after thousands of years it still remains one of the top dogs for street fighting and combat in general .... plus it literally has the best striking system ever composed, thats why bruce lee exadurated that if you form your own jeet kun do be sure to add boxing

tried and tested, i did muay thai for about a year, it was muay thai and hapkido ... but i swapped it for boxing after my first boxing lesson .... plus that mate of mine i thrashed ... does muay thai and told me the exact same thing, he actually trained in thailand too, one of those camps, so dont say it unless you've fought a good boxer

muay thai is good ... but in my personal opinion boxing is way better, muay thai fighters are solid but theyre slow to strike for most of their attacks

yeh lol, boxing is used often at street fighting and combat because most of us wannabes can't use our legs for full effectiveness. though limiting yourself to just using hands isn't the best of ideas. legs are longer and more powerful than arms, but yeh thats where i agree with you that both are important. bruce lee was right, but i believe Kung Fu still kicks ass.

again, its not that we dont use our legs, its just that we use them in a different way, out punches start from our ankles, i think one of the hardest punches ever recorded was around 1000pounds of pressure .... thats gonna knock you out even if you have a tungsten jaw lol

plus most punk kid boxers nowadays give boxing a bad name, plus the only kicks i'll ever use in a fight are thrust kicks and spinning heel kicks, but never, i repeat, never use kicks against a boxer ... they are used to dodging and evading punches that crack from mere inches .... the speed and distance of a kick just simply isnt enough to catch out a good i repeat good boxer, plus part of our training is getting hit lol knee's have to be hella strong if ur gonna wind us XD ... plus our low stance and footwork make kicking low harder than the average guy ..... hey buddy, do you do martial arts???

well by this moment in time, i'll whip out my trusty crow bar. lol,

nah, boxers weakness is their less, although you say they train very hard with their legs, i'm pretty sure i can get a decent shot on your knee which would disable you for a while for me to elbow you in the face then whack you round the head. if not, i'll player dead and get you low lol. the boxers weakness is that he doesn't know any other ways of hitting apart from hook, jab, uppercut and dodging...

and no i don't do any martial arts lol, well i was gonna organise some amateur amateur boxing with my mates lol...but apart from that, i have all the bruce lee books if that counts? :)

what i meant was that pro boxing would mean that you wouldn't use your legs to kick and stuff you in some ways your opponent would have an advantage, for example a pro boxer and a pro muay thai'er i think the muay thai practioneer would have a better chance (this situation is if they were both at the same level) because the muay thai practioneer because he would be able to use a lot of diffrent parts of his body rather than just his fists

XD if you dont do any martial arts then you really dont have much of an opinion here lol no offense but i wont take it from anyone who's been in any less than 10 fights half of which were organised, you cant simply kick a boxers knee like that because 1. most boxers are rushers and will be in your face before your kick has extended 2. boxers strength is their legs because unlike martial artists they use kinetic linking (google that shit i cant be arsed to explain) and their low stance means bodyweight is on their legs, long story short ... unless you have fuuuucking hard kicks ... no not kung fu but maybe muay thai, your kick to the knee will only throw you off balance, exposing your sweet jaw for they one second thats needed to go sandman on ur ass

its also not only ignorant, but insulting to analyze boxing like you just did with having no real martial arts experiences and boxing experiences ... boxing has a huuuuge range of different types of stances and strikes, i wont explain them go look them up, boxers train their jaws too, and neck muscles so it'll take alot more to knock them out then a well placed elbow

lastly .... do you even know how fast they can punch!?!? and unlike kung fu, there is weight behind every blow

walk into any self respecting boxing club and say what you just did here .... you will get laughed at

well we use our legs to for kinetic linking and we have better manouverability and stability than any othjer martial art .... your kicks are rendered useless with either a step forward or a step in the direction the kick is coming at, you extra body parts wont count for shit, because boxers never get gaught by such slow attacks, as for your elbows ... good luck reaching XD
