Smaller martial artist takes on larger street fighter with brutal results

Tuesday, April 04, 2017

The martial arts are a bit of an anomaly when one really begins to delve into the concept.  We live in a society that looks down upon and tries to suppress one of the most primal and inherited traits of not just Homo sapiens but nearly all species throughout the history of known time: fighting.

Aggressive behavior is used for a variety of reasons such as a show of dominance, for protection, and even as an emotional defense to not display weakness.  The martial arts are known for violence.  Try this, read the term below and notice the first figure that comes to mind:

If you are like most of us then you thought of Bruce Lee.  I probably can safely assume as well that you did not think of all of his esoteric philosophies in regards to living life in a meaningful and purposeful way which leads to a propensity towards peace, happiness, and love. No, you probably thought of him kicking ass.

Fighting is only a facet of what the martial arts are…albeit a pretty frickin’ awesome facet and one that leads the public to love organized combat fighting and street fight videos alike…point and case: you are reading this article.

But how effective are the martial arts in the street? Does all that training really pay off when one is faced with a much larger and stronger opponent in a setting with no rules? When our primal instincts kick in will the big and the strong survive or will it be the cerebral being who has embraced what he is at the most basic level and learned to harness that frequency to become a strong and confident person?

Check out the video below to find out.

Neither www.mixedmartialarts.com nor myself promote street fighting or physical acts of violence in any form or fashion, however; we do promote the martial arts as well as the cerebral philosophies therein.
