When it comes to Jujitsu throwing or Martial arts punching I will always take karate punching.
We know this is likely to ruffle a few feathers, but let me state my case.
Back in the sixties and seventies there weren’t many organizations, no protective gear, no mothers worrying as they observed their seven year old learn Karate. There was so few schools which i experienced to travel fifty mls to class, and the sole people I trained with were VERY dedicated.
Dedicated people who failed to subscribe because they got seen a Bruce Shelter movie (Bruce Lee had not been around while i commenced Martial arts, he was yet to come), but because something inside them was generating them.
Over the next few years protective items was introduced, chain stores started up, people who studied for a few of years were offered and went off to start out their own schools, and the worth of Martial arts sank.
But before that happened I saw people do something that folks today simply cannot do.
May you break a ranking brick with a 1 / 2 fist? How about staying a hole in a board with a solitary finger? Think about taking a full power kick to the groin?

Flash forward… the Ultimate Fighting Championship is the most popular market in the world. Persons crowd into MMA universities so they can floor and pound, and time-honored karate, and Kung Venne and many other disciplines, are fairly well overlooked, or taught to children in large chains, which merely exacerbates the problem.
Yet I have never seen anybody step into the ring and do the sort of Karate punch I actually was trained in. I use never seen anybody who could punch an hand and break a bone with perfect focus and a calm mind.
TRAINING FOR MMA, the truth is, is using boxing.
Many claim that Martial arts punches are very stylistic, won’t work. But zero of the people who say such thing trained when these Karate do work, when students were trained until they could make Karate work, and only the dedicated made it.
