I train taekwondo now..and I really like it :D


martial arts/fighting is based on the individual. There is no such thing as an invincible fighting stlye.You flesh will bleed and your bones will break reguardless of what style you know.Use whatever works for you. Train in it so it can work for you.peace over war

fighting is based on the individual.I personaly go by Bruce Lee's philosophy when fighting- which is pretty much anything goes.

But on the other hand what works for you might not work for me.And everybody fights in a stance unless you are grappling.

Also, some people may find it comfortable to fight in some large traditional karate stance.What works for them, may not work for you.
So all this nonsense about serperior styles or martial arts being useless in fights is foolishness. Fights are based on the individuals, not some style or random fighting.The problem then becomes you trap yourself in your own "style" and never learn, adapt, and grow to the random fighting situations.There is no 100% pure undefeatable way to win a fight. Use what ever style you want to, but it always falls on the individual.
Edit; btw, most large karate type stances r only used for training, not acutal fighting, and stances that r used for fighting r transitional, u dont stay in them the whole fight- how would u move if u did?
