what is the fastest knockout in mma history
The Game Show Show – SYDNEY DAVIS
Believe it or not, there are many unqualified blackbelts and self defense instructors giving advice and teaching stuff that could get you killed. Worst of all, these people have never been in a life or death fight and have no valid or real experience when it comes to fighting.
Rule #1 – You should always interview a potential martial arts or fighting instructor before you join the dojo. You want to put them through an interview process finding out what qualifies them to teach you. If they got a blackbelt in taekwondo at the age of 15, have never been in a real fight other then sparring, turn away and run!
Rule #2 – You want to make sure the class you will be joining has full contact sparrring. You need to feel the pain of being hit, get accustomed to having fists and feet thrown at you. You need to have active experience in actual combat situations.
Rule #3 – Not all mixed martial arts instructors understand the difference between in the octagon and on the streets. If they tell you their jiujutsu will save you on the ground they are wrong. Simply because you never want a street fight to go to the ground. You can get stomped, stabbed, or smashed by your opponent and possibly his friends.
Rule #4 – A self defense instructor should be certified and trained under a known expert of the art. You don’t want to pick a guy with a blackbelt who proclaims he’s an expert. You should be learning reality based street fighting for the modern world. You don’t want to learn simple techniques for a variety of “common attacks” with no real power or force based on what he’s teaching.
Rule #5 – If he prefers to be called a master, or claims to be a family member of a group of master self defense instructors or martial artists, he’s full of crap. Most dojo’s want to make money and if they throw a lot of hype into their sales pitch you know he just wants your money and the stuff he teaches is probably garbage.
Picking the right self defense instructor is fundamental to your personal training and real life success in a fight. You want a teacher with battle tested experiences that are proven to work. Not outdated information or stuff being taught with no reality or force as part of the training.
Don’t make the mistake of throwing money into the most expensive dojo in town and expect to have the edge lesser priced schools would have in a street attack. Interview your teachers before you join!
