    Level 3 (Green)Additional combatives including throws and more difficult self-defense scenarios such as multiple attacks, defending against grapplers and takedown specialists; a greater number of surprise attacks ; increased frequency and intensity of sparring and the basics of edged weapon work. More advanced retzev.

    Level 4 (Blue)Advanced punch and kick combinations and countermeasures against these attacks including being drowned; gun, edged weapon and blunt weapon defenses; advanced ground fighting; more regular sparring and advanced retzev including ground retzev.

    Ooo Martial arts

    I train in jeet kune do and kickboxing, used to do karate many moons ago but once the club shut down i changed direction.

    I can only speak from the experience of practicing those but i have found jeet kune do absolutely the most useful and practical in "real life" situations.

    The karate class i used to do there was barely ever contact other stepping back and forth taking it in turns with punching/blocking but perhaps that was just the club i ended up in.... however ive never, and hope i never, see anyone in a "real" street fight punch someone coming with their fist from their hip... its just not practical.

    That said i have the up most respect for traditional arts...
    I personally prefer something i can translate to use should i ever be in that situation and the way im taught fits the bill nicely

    I've heard that Jeet Kune Do is a very effective fighting style - it's the style Bruce Lee founded isn't it? And Pup, don't think that all traditional martial arts are the same. It sounds like you ended up in a karate class with a bad instructor, as I know of people who have trained in karate (generally kyokushin), who are great fighters. Take Georges St. Pierre for example Also the style of kung fu I train in isn't very much like a lot of traditional styles, as a lot of the fighting techniques are similar to muay thai, which a lot of people regard as the ultimate striking style.

    Yep thats right archon, Bruce Lee stylee... my instructor's instructor was trained by the man himself
    It honestly is very practical for real life situations you may face, also comming along with some tough conditioning and a mental side too.
    You're probably right though, dont get me wrong, i wouldnt challange a black belt karate expert and expect to win! It probably was down to the instructor, think ive been very lucky this time around ^_^

    When I was younger I used to do Judo. Didn't get too far as it was mainly fun and something different for me rather than aiming for higher belts. Loved it to bits.. kinda miss it.

    But yes, I don't think I even had my ears done then.. and I don't remember any people having piercings - so I assume they were made to take them out

    I was never into the mainstream martial arts like most of my friends. While my friends were in karate, I was taking hapkido. I never could grasp the karate linear philosophy (someone attack, you step straight back and block/counter). It just seem like counter intuitive. I love hapkido for its simplest philosophy. If someone attacks you, you move the crap out of the way, then counter. I love taking this martial art. I was one belt below 1st dan when the dojo closed and the guy move back to Korea.

    Now, I'm taking Kali (FMA) and I'm loving this one too. This martial is extremely combat oriented and very simple to learn.

    It's based on different principles. The idea with some arts (I'm assuming hapkido is one of them) is to move out of the 'centre line' of attack i.e. move to the side when an attack comes in, in order to unbalance your opponent. Things like karate focus more on staying in the centre line and moving your opponent out of it, for example by blocking a straight punch or kick by pushing it to the side. Either can be effective, it's effectively just a different way of unbalancing your opponent.
