By the way, i was almost killed 2 weeks ago by some gangsters wanting to steal my mother's wallet, but for some reason, my body just started to move on its own and i knocked the gang's leader unconscious. After that, i just got beat to a half-dead state by the rest. But, is there a possibly logical explanation for this phenomenon, like fighting mechanism in the body, spiritual reincarnate, anything?

I see... Thanks.

I was planning on sadistic fury then, but you are right, it's stupid to force your nails into your fingers to get into a rage.

I read about it in a book, and it says elbows are much better to use than fingers. Fingers are too delicate...

So, 2 effective methods are mentioned in this book:
1, stab the person by heart from back.
2, hit the head and neck with your elbow forcefully, then cut the larynyx.

Thanks for the good advice guys


Uh... Why are you so obsessed with killing people? I hope you know that murder is generally internationally illegal.
Besides, techniques in theory and techniques in practice are two completely different fields.

Uh...
If you're mugged, it's usually the best idea to give the people what they want. The only time when retaliation would be warranted is if they want you or someone your with.
If you were half dead I am quite surprised you're online only a mere two weeks later.

I have never heard of someone "moving on their own" like how you explained without extensive [5+ years] training in a professional martial arts school.
When the brain secretes epinephrine, symptoms include heightened senses. However there is no neurological stimulus that would compel you subconsciously into fighting in such a manner as you explained. To be honest, the details of your story sound quite dubious from a scientific standpoint as well as a practical one. Perhaps you could be more elaborate?

Unless the object you are protecting is worth risking your health (or life) over, it's generally better to run or give the thieves what they want. I find it difficult to believe that any material item is that valuable. It's also foolhardy to try taking on multiple opponents. Even after 8 years of training, I still hesitate when I'm made to fight more than two people at a time. Even if they're untrained, it will be difficult because you're trying to block several limbs at once, and they might have weapons. Two people is enough already. It's unlikely that anybody can win against three or more opponents who are seriously attacking with harmful intentions.

If your mother or you were in danger of being harmed and you couldn't run for it, then fighting would be understandable....

Me. I find that a natural stance seems to fit me better mainly because i end up switching from form to form, from move to move, and mainly from stance to stance. As i move through my stances i move very naturally and so i have a tough time staying perfectly in a rigid stance.

So does anyone know what Aikido is? and i'm not talking about Hopkido. Hopkido is a stupid branch off and useless offensive form of Aikido.
And if you know what it is do you know where anyone teaches it?

I'm familiar with Aikido.
Please refrain from outright insulting another's art, though. It's against the rules here, which I would advise taking a quick look at.
Hapkido has it's uses and Aikido's effectiveness has been questioned, as well, in the past. So let's not step on any toes here.

right sorry. i guess im still a little sore from being insulted by others trying to force me to take hapkido saying its the same as aikido. the thing is the last time i took an offensive martial arts its been getting me into a lot of trouble cause even though i don't remember a lot of stuff from the classes my body automatically react to situations by attacking. so sorry for bagging on hapkido im just a little sore because of the last time i took an offensive martial arts.

to me i'd go for the natural stance..as well because the line through your body can help you be easily routed, and you can move quite naturally. especially in randori, but watch out for take downs.. other than that
I would prefer the bigone stance. with more boxing.. i feel more comfortable fighting using it, even if i'm getting hurt.. my limbs can protect itself within range but wat i hat I HATE IS THAT YOUR BODY CAN EASILY FOLLOW .. especially toe turning or bent knees.. of course its a shock effect but.. if i can naturally defend myself and use my movements, or recover easily from not just one or more..
I'm very good.. very happy, protect the head check.. protect the innards check.. destroy?

on the ground..
I dont like sitting on my but so much even though its very safe.. and its very challenging to be on fullmount, but i love side control..or the back..
so if you want to call it a stance I love side control..cuz its easier for me to get back up, or break a limb.. or use ude hishigi, or my gatame, or chin na or strike.. I would like to if i was on the ground.. get up.. hittem or quick snap em.. then go on my knee, and stand up, fight others.. i havent fought multiples since i was mugged, in knife point.. and i turned submissive.. but i train for this now.. cuz now i know.. now i train not just techniques but mentality.. mentality.. is the dealbreaker or sealer..t
I train with others and i gotta say Bigone.. you can turn into anything..even circular movement if you prefer bagua
