I know most talk is about diet but which martial arts actually work?

I tried Wushu and shit only worked against Wushu.

I tried Ipman's style and shit got my punches faster but nothing else.

I tried Greek Wrestling but I was told to go for the anus too much.

I tried Sambo but my body type worked shit for the techniques.

How the fuck do I defend myself? It all seems made up bullshit.

if it helps I'm 5'11, Endomorph, 70kg

How long did you stick with each of these? General consensus is a striking art and a grappling art is what you need. Or just get a gun.

You should be working out dipshit. Strength >= Fitness >= Skill. After that just develop your critical thinking skills so that you don't need someone to hold your hand and tell you when you're fighting like a retard in an echo chamber of blindspots, ignorance and delusion.

It doesn't really matter so much which martial art you train so long as you train consistently and train to surpass yourself. A lot of succeeding in combat has more to do with your mind than your body, knowing what to do and how to do it is far more important than raw strength, though obviously you should strive to improve every aspect of your physical avatar, body included, strategy trumps power basically every time.

>>150065

You don't actually believe this, do you? You're just shitposting, right? Anyone who thinks skill is the least important thing in martial arts has to be. That being said you're not entirely wrong, critical thinking is important, but when it comes to martial arts there are literally techniques invented by and intended for small women, entire styles even, not all martial arts are for YUGE men like us.

You say this like getting in street fights is a mark of success in life or something, why you living in the ghetto bro, why you got demons controlling your mind?

>strategy trumps power basically every time

If you mean the gun or knife strategy, sure.

>small women techniques

If you mean the gun or knife strategy, sure. You can knee the groin and gouge the eyes, but that is quite minimal fucking skill.

You know I was writing greater than or equal to, right? I have a better one.

Power >= Intent to Fuck You Up (Aggression, Spirit, Intent, Focus) >= Durability = Fitness or Athleticism >= Skill

It's not an entirely hardset equation, as a strong enough person against someone with a glass body can be shattered, but generally speaking power leads to durability and capacity to maul a person (aggression, intent, foucs). If you have a glass jaw or something, the jaw and neck needs to be strengthened.

It's a pyramid. You don't have to be fucking huge, you have to be strong. Bruce Lee could do quite a bit in fucking someone up.

Why do you bring up concealed carried weapons when someone is specifically asking about martial arts? Obviously you can carry a gun but that's not the question being asked here.

Do you tell people to just buy a car when they ask how to run faster?

Have you even considered escalation of force? If you're in a fistfight and you pull a gun, now you're in a gunfight.

p.s. Training to rely on a weapon to defend yourself means that you can be caught offguard without your weapon, I would think that would be obvious.

>Do you tell people to just buy a car when they ask how to run faster?

>Do you tell people to buy a car when a woman asks how to beat the men's world record?

yes.

>Do you tell people to buy a car when a woman with no athleticism asks how to beat their lifelong athletic and tier 1 collegiate runner in their specialized race?

Yes.

>Do you tell women to get a fucking knife and gun and pepper spray?

YES

Was I using rhetoric and you decided to double down on the rhetoric game instead of responding to two unbacked claims with a change of pace: an actual fucking good argument?

<Yes.

Up your discussion game. You can go ahead and teach women "small women techniques", but they better be as good as or the same as "grown man techniques". Knees to the groin, gouging of eyes, knife to anywhere, gun to anywhere, pepper spray.

What will benefit women is actual fucking training. Physically demanding, brutal training. As it benefits anyone.

Your bullshit about strategy being greater than power applies in some ways:

1) Don't live in a dangerous neighborhood.

2) Don't go places alone at night.

3) Bring people that have a weapon or experience fighting if it's dangerous.

4) Bring people that just have a fucking gun and know how to use it (bring 2 or 3, in fact). Be a posse.

5) Be aware of the danger before it fucking jumps you and slams your head into concrete.

6) Pull your pepper spray out when you think you're in a dangerous situation, and be willing/ready to use it.

Congratulations. Strategy successful.

Also, don't act like you're taking the high road of a discussion ("staying on topic") when you're fucking retarded and lazy. You act like some 4chan kiddy. You never even addressed the rest of my post (because you are a lazy retard).

Ipman's reputation is massively overblown and it being so massively overblown is used as evidence that everything said about him actually happened.

>I tried Greek Wrestling but I was told to go for the anus too much.

So in other words, you didn't actually go learn it and instead just watched some gay porn at home instead.

>>150133

It's because people go to "traditional" martial art schools, where they simply go through drills punching the air and then spar once in every blue moon (practicing moves with a non-resisting partner doesn't count as sparring). Nevermind the fact that in the past it was used for actually defending yourself and thus had to be as down to earth as possible to ensure you don't die, just learn this dance where you punch and kick the air as if you were to be fighting a couple thousand invisible enemies using moves that you're probably going to get killed for trying to use.
