I've recently gotten into taekwondo. What do you think is the best in terms of self-defense and applicability to real-life situations?

I guess I'm kind of like a hippie. I'm anti-war, do drugs, and like communism.
Your not a hippie, just a ****ing moron.

Why do you assume we use martial arts?

There is an overriding sense of alpha in these parts. I want a thread related to said alpha.

I use ''take my pants off cause nobody want to fight a naked guy'' technique.
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

several people have dubbed me the holy master warlord of fightism.
I also mastered the jitsu technique of playing dead. As Steve Carrel, the headmaster of our order has stated, no one wants to beat a dead person, it's basic instinct.

Judo
Tae Kwon Do
Shotokan
Jeet Kune Do

and Kendo, but nobody counts Kendo anymore

Isn't that because they teach Kendo in elementary schools now?

what's the point in being "philiosophical"?

Interesting question...

If your life depends on it, I would think a kick in the nads would do just fine. That, or a Tazer. Gun seems fine too. Usually guns are useful without even shooting anyone, you just have to be packing so you can quickly gain control of the situation.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.
#21
Karate, Judo, and Jujitsu.

I'm a technique hound though, I kinda skip the whole "art" part of the deal. Because of this I have technically never earned any belt, but my skills have been praised in a few dojos, including the local one in which I help train folks.

edit: I've dabbled in Muay Thai and others too. I just learn the practical stuff and move on.

It's not everyday you get attacked by a man in a dressing gown.

And no, I don't plan to work at a mental hospital.

A friend of mine does that, he's kind of a bamf too. I can remember this one time, in one swift motion, he took off his shirt and his pants, then punched a dude in the face.

I did 4 years of ITF Taekwondo, did about two weeks of boxing, kickboxing, bjj each (doesnt count that much) and now im doing muay thai. I'm glad I switched to muay thai.
