IN MMA WE CAN ADD IN DIRTY FIGHTING ALSO, SO WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
It comes down to this: the way you train is the way you fight. We train dirty fighting 100% of the time, all the time. Not just dirty fighting but DEFENSE against dirty fighting. And not just dirty fighting techniques but ADAPTIVE and creative improvisation. Your training time is valuable. Are you training to "gain submissions," fight sportively or to learn how to survive and live another day?
To quote Professor Brad Steiner, President of the International Combat Martial Arts Federation:
"A choice must be made. If a method can be practiced full force in a
competitive venue, then obviously it lacks crippling, maiming, and
killing skills — all of which, whether it is popular to say so or not,
must be taught and embedded in the student’s psyche and nervous system.
If a system is fully combat worthy, then any competition or full
contact training in the skills (except against dummies and other
insentient training aids) is nothing short of insanity."
Why don't you use full force and speed in your demos like in MMA?
