Jabs would be your bench press power hips and legs would be those haymakers which are pretty damn hard to land unless your fighting a moron who's just standing there taking hits.


I'm going to go out on a limb and say your wrong on both accounts. A bit of karate 101:

Jabs don't have much power but from a karate stand point the power they do have comes from moving your body forward and punching quickly during the process. This adds part of your weight behind the jab. They are used while retreating for defensive purposes and when your body isn't moving to keep your opponent off balance.

Haymakers have no place in karate but their power is actually due to angular acceleration more than a driving force from the legs. The punch is usually thrown with a fully extended arm and the back twists pulling the arm through the strike; legs are nominal in this motion.

wow pretty smart. i took karate for 4 yrs but all i got was a red belt for show and one or two little tournament trophies but ive completely forgotten everythin ive been taught, all the theories and what not. all i know is fighting dirty cus really.. you just fight to win. groin kickin, eye gouging, throat crushing, bone breaking, etc such moves are all i know now. just usin whatever you can get your hands on to give you an advantage cus thats all i got from my military training during our hand to hand courses. a lot more useful in street fighting than the martial arts you'd use to fight with in tournaments.

I'll toss a real one in I suppose:

I got bored about 6 months after I stopped actively training and visited my old dojo. They had picked up a new female instructor who I ended up paired up with to spar for the day. We warmed up a bit together and then began. Things went innocently enough she was faster, smarter, and more experienced but I managed to stay on my feet for the first 20 seconds. I took a half step forward to close the range from kicking to punching when she suddenly launches herself into the air straight up. I assumed she was going for a defensive knee strike so quickly stepped back when I noticed her leg swinging around about a half second too late. I got my hand up in time to just barely graze the fabric of her gi and then the world went black. I ended up out for about 15 seconds from a jumping reverse round house kick that I never expected.

ill throw an old sparring story of mine too then. so i was a brand new purple belt feeling cocky and i went up against this girl a lil shorter than me. she'd been purple belt for a few weeks also but i thought i could take her. soon as i stepped up, WAM! her legs flew up and her feet hit my head and down i went. was pretty embarassed i can tell you that.

OMG ! someone who totally didnt pwn someone else with amazing karate ninja fashion...i just cant believe that,,,not on this thread!

BTW Hop- your entirely correct about the jab ive boxed for nearly 2 years and i even know without your legs pushing your weight into the punch a jab is like a girl slap if theres nothing behind it

ok... here we go guys....

a water battle...

When i worked as a bouncer for a private lingerie modelling agency, there was this client who adored water, and he would pay my friend $1000 to come to his house once a month to take a shower.
She obviously didn't feel comfortable going to this guys house alone, so she worked in the deal that he would pay me $500 to spray her. (and i could be her bodyguard)
So we went to this guys house (HUGE FUCKING MANSION BTW) and he invited us into the kitchen where he had some snacks set up for us.
My best friend was wearing a thin white t-shirt and a school girl skirt. (green and blue plaid fyi)
I was wearing just my usual white t-shirt and jeans.
He poured tea for us and we sat there while he told us what he was wanting exactly...
He said he wanted us to hang out until we felt comfortable and then whenever we felt like it to spontainiously start fighting with water.
He gave us both squirt guns (super soakers btw) so that it could be sporadic. He even said he did't mind if we got anything at all wet. stuff was stuff and he'd buy a new one if something got ruined.
So we sat there and finished our tea, chit chatting, when she out of the blue squirted me in the face...
I wasn't expecting that.
So i pulled my gun out and squirted her... but i soon ran out of water, so i dashed over to the sink and grabbed the sprayer, and turn just as she ran up to me.. and I sprayed the heck out of her.

We were both soaking wet and dripping everywhere... and then the guy asked us to kiss....
Uhm... that was NOT in the agreement.. (not to mention she's my best friend and that would just be weird, not that i hadn't been with women, but just NOT HER)
i still had the sprayer in my hands.
She looked at me and said quietly, i'll make him pay us more for it.
and kissed me.
I was so shocked at the turn of events that I turned the sprayer on her, under her shirt.

wet stories huh. heres one. during my 4 day pass to bulgaria during my deployment overseas, my buddy and i found a sweet place to eat lunch at each day. i remember it being called the Velvet or something. they had a outdoor swimming pool that was swimsuit optional so the next day we snuck a camera in and secretly had some of the girls there pose for some pictures. werent suppose to have cameras there and all. i think i can still dig'em up if any guys interested women over there sure are hot, about 3/4 of'em could probably be models. a lot different from the women in the US sadly. just that, there seemed to be less obese ppl over there

Here's one about a fight I had with a chick.

This was a long time ago in elementary school. I think I was in 4th or 5th grade. There was this chick named Carla or something and she was truly a bitch-in-training. That early on I was this quiet kid that didn't know anyone.

Alright so one day she was going around one by one judging everyone in the class. She would walk up to you and tell you if you were cute or not. When she got to my isle she went "Cute, cute, cute, cute, UGLY!" Of course the ugly was to me. That is the first time I can ever remember being pissed off. So I rolled my eyes at her and she yelled "Don't roll your eyes at me you sissified punk!" I fuckin lost it and stood up. She got right in my face and we just stood there for a few seconds. Then she said "What you gonna do?" and put her finger in my face and said some other shit. I took a step back then pushed her as hard as I could. She tripped over a desk and fell on her head. That was the last time she ever spoke to me (thank god) even though we went to the same middle and high schools. Everyone thought I was badass because it looked like I hit her in the face but I only pushed her. For the next week or so I was the shit lol.
