Martial Arts Mondays: Part 1

I'm creating a new feature on my blog which may or may not be repeated. I saw something on YouTube that was so amazing that I would be remiss (whatever that means) if I didn't share it with you imaginary people on the internets. So I'm creating this feature just to share it with you.

Here is a video clip of the MMA Girls demonstrating one of my favorite moves (the side choke) from a full guard position.* They call it a head and arm choke, but I don't care what you call it. When two hot 22 year old, south african blondes with nice surgically unaltered breasts do it, I call it "awesome."




Anyway, I guess that Martial Arts Mondays should have some other stuff, so I will give out a free plug. For those of you who are into MMA, JuJitsu, or other types of grappling, the 2007 SAMBO Summit Training Camp is on Sept. 14 -16th in Staten Island NY. It's 3 days with 3 incredible SAMBO teachers for the bargain price of $400.

One of the guys teaching it is David Machin, who used to be my Sifu when I lived in NYC. He's the real deal. His Makiwara regimen is insane and his hands are like bricks.
This is a makiwara. The traditional way to use it is without the vinyl padding.










Anywho, for those of you who are unfamiliar with SAMBO,** it's the fighting system that the Soviets used to train their military and special forces. It's like Judo, except that instead of controlling your opponent without harming them, you control them by breaking their bones and choking them to death. It's very popular in UFC fights, and was the style used by UFC champion Oleg Taktarov.

If you have trouble imagining what I'm talking about, you can watch this video. Once again, to sum up, The 2007 SAMBO Summit Training Camp should not be missed. It will kick your training up to an 11.


*I usually don't discuss fighting on here, because it sounds like bragging, but I have used the side choke (from a standing position) in real fights and once choked somebody unconscious with it. But I've never seen it look as sexy as when these chicks do it.

**SAMBO is the abbreviation for the russian words whose translation are "Self defense without weapons."

How come there were no girls that looked like that when I took a Karate class?

The SAMBO stuff looks extremely useful. The MMA stuff just looked hot.

I like how cute she sounds when she says the other one is going to be "dropping Tito Ortiz style bombs" on her. How many hotties like that even know who Tito Ortiz is?

Great videos, enjoyed both. The first one really made my day though.

Jen said...

I remember it being just like that in Judo. I always imagined my opponent naked, though.

HomeImprovementNinja said...

WTF: That's what I want to know!

LJ: Well, at least you're a loyal reader :)

You can call me, 'Sir': Yeah, I found some other MMA Girl stuff. I'll save it for future episodes.

Anonymous: I know one hottie who knows who he is: Jenna Jameson. She's dating him. They met on myspace...W.T.F!!!

suicide_blond: If that's a challenge, I accept :)

John: Yeah, me too. They look equally cute in the other demos.

Jen: If I was wrasslin' a (hot) chick, I'd do that too :)

Arjewtino said...

She said "mount". Thank you for this.

AO said...

you know, freud said that there are only two things that motivate human behavior: SEX and AGGRESSION. i think you covered them both nicely in this one. haha. i was actually turned on a little myself. ;)

AO said...

ps: it takes me about 15 minutes (at the most) to bike to work. i also work in dupont. it's a very quick commute.

SAILOR MOON said...

i dont know why i cant get into the whole karate stories...narf..

SAILOR MOON said...

ok
1. so i saw the videos...youve come to a new low ive never seen on your blog before with those sluts.

2. the second video is awesome. Do girls ever really get strong enough like the men to kick ass like that? Are these are the techniques used in the Bourne Identity's? And my favorite move is with the one guy in military and the other guy in a white shirt go at it. and the military guy gets the white t-shirt guy and makes his hand look gay..i cant properly describe it...but im assuming hes breaking his hand or wrist right?

HomeImprovementNinja said...

Arjewtino: I'll post the "rear naked choke" in another episode.

AO: I think everyone is turned on by the MMA Girls.

SAILOR MOON: Yes, I got a video for next time of a girl kicking a guy's butt. And yes, he's breaking the guy's wrist there. Also, don't hate on the MMA Girls. One of them looks like Charlotte Stokely.
