MMA fighter Ramsey Dewey and Jesse "The Karate Nerd" Enkamp discuss why Mixed Martial Arts sucks for self-defense.
A perfect example was the home invasion experienced by }UFC fighter Anthony Smith. Turns out, self-protection includes several skills that are not taught in modern combat sports like #MMA
But what about traditional martial arts, like Karate?
The original purpose of Karate was pure self-defense. That's why it included weapons, ground work, takedowns, joint locks, pressure points and much more. But after it spread from Okinawa to Japan, it shifted focus and eventually became an Olympic sport.
Today, most people find modern Karate ineffective in actual fights. But that's because they are not looking at the functional applications hidden in kata - the traditional forms. The key is to rediscover the practical applications of kata, known as ''bunkai' in Japanese.
