Western or Eastern martial arts?Posted by: Black-Jesus
A lot of people tend to think that Eastern martial artists could easily beat Western fighters, but I've seen trainers in Western systems beat those of Eastern styles just as badly as you see Bruce Lee beat the snot out of Chuck Norris in Way of the Dragon. It is largely up to the fighters themselves, but, obviously, some styles are better than others.
Simple and natural to learn. Most people don't have the time to learn a complicated series of martial arts, best bet is to stick with the basics.
Ever heard of Cane-Fu?
Western is more applicable in real world situations. Eastern martial arts tends to be more for ceremonial and performance purposes.
The Eastern system of values embedded in martial arts is much more valuable. It isn't just all about fight, fight, fight.
Western styles in UFC are all hybrids of eastern ones anyways. The only truly western ones are maybe Boxing and Grecco-Roman Wrestling. Those though, mostly prove that the bigger stronger guy who can take a hit the best always wins. Eastern match-ups seem much more interesting and require technique and brains to beat your opponent.
i prefer the eastern women over western men.
