    • @Newbie4Hire All of the mawashi gyuri (round house) and mygeri (Front) kicks are straight out of Karate! And how many straight punches did you see? Both choke-zuki (straight punch) and gyaku-zuki (Reverse Punch) for knockouts? All of those are straight out of Karate. And if you didn't recognize that, you never studied Karate!

  • I don't watch stuff like this often but I can tell he's something different from most. Very quick on switching up his style and very quick on using any opportunity to dive in going straight for the head. A lot of others seem to hit once and see how effective it was and land a lot of hits on the back of the head. He lands a hit and if he thinks it was a good one without observing first just dives in with a flurry of blows with great precision to the the front of the head.

People in prison love to tell stories. One of the best, most prolific stories is how they are MMA fighters on the outside. In reality they are strung out tweakers who have burned their families. In a context like this, I'm skeptical.

  • If you've never had a friend that had this kind of fighting talent allow you to join him in a friendly sparing match where they hold back any knockout blows, you'll soon realize why these guys are BAD ASS!! I had that opportunity when I was young (24) and in awesome shape. My buddy who had some serious fighting training/skills but was much smaller than I offered to show me his skills after I gave him a bit of friendly shit. I soon realized that could have knocked me out in the first few seconds. Instead, he showed just how fast he was by tapping me around the jaw and midsection and I couldn't block more than one punch (at best) he was so fast, and I couldn't touch him!! I finally had to laugh I felt so out of my league, and he smiled back with a told you so smile. LOL.

  • Karate works when properly applied to full contact combat. This is true for everything. What is needed is for traditional martial arts to come completely into the full contact sparring and competition areas then we will see a lot more diversity. Point based and low contact competition is the issue.

  • Lyoto Machida is an excellent fighter, disciplined, focused, makes perfect adjustments and is well prepared to fight anyone. He's had a great example and teacher, his father to guide him along the way. He made a solid decision that paid off and proved that traditional martial arts can still be very effective when applied properly even when he had to go against his sensei and father's advice. But what I like the most about this fighter, this man, is his humbleness and overall respect for others. I could honestly say that Lyoto Machida is my all time favorite fighter. Continued success and blessings to you Brazilian Dragon!

I believe Karate especialy helped me while I served with the US Army in Vietnam (505th PIR 82nd Airborne Division). I sincerely Thank Mr. Layoto Machida, and his outstanding Father, Sensei Machida, for upholding the honor, and highest Traditions of Shotokan, and all other traditional Karate Ryu (Styles). Again, my heartfelt Thank You to the great Machida Family. Domo Arigato Gozaimashita. Osu!

    • @MPF_AGUNDIPSHT They literally came to power because of the death and destruction brought to Cambodia by US bombing. The former Soviet Union provided aid to Cambodia when no one gave a fuck and people were starving to death and dieing of simple things like diarrhea. Vietnam fought the Khmer. Watch John Pilger documentary of the time. He made several specifically on Cambodia.

    • @Frank Basile LOL I was a black belt since I was 10 yrs old. I'm 43. I prefer Mixed Martial Arts. Rodtang was Choked out by Mighty Mouse and Rodtang is a Beast. Just goes to show you need to be well rounded in both stand up and on the ground if you expect to defend yourself effectively. If A good Jui Jitsu or Catch wrestler gets his hands on you you're done. And I mean a Jui Jitsu Or Catch wrestler who is also trained in Mui Thai , Karate or Kung Fu.

    • I hear what you're saying about the honor and respect. That's great, I agree! I was a black belt by the time I was 10 yrs old and I felt like karate was too stiff, robotic and restrictive. Practicing Routines and katas that lead nowhere. Bruce Lee was right. Sure I could knock someone out with a side kick or straight punch to the head but I found taking the best of every style and making my own style was far more effective. I got into boxing. Grappling/Jui Jitsu. Muay Thai. Kung Fu. Etc I've never had to use it on a person in my life. It is strictly for self defense. Last resort. It Exercises my Mind, body, and Spirt.
