I practiced Karate for a dozen years and wanted to start training in Jiu-Jitsu after the quarantine. I have a few questions about the sport.
- Do you refer to the teacher as a ''sensei'' or ''master'' or is it more laid back?
- Is the learning curve really intense or can you start using techniques / transitions early?
- Is it weird rolling with women at first? I'm a male and I wouldn't want a woman to think I'm inappropriately touching her.
- Should I go with a Gracie certified gym?
- Can I use my Karate gi or is it demanded that you use the one from your school?
- Are the belts exams based on time or skill?
Any answers to any of the questions would be very appreciated. Thank you and I hope you're all doing great.
PS: Sorry if I made any mistakes, English isn't my main language.

I wanted to talk about this for a while now but I was being a lazy shit. ANYWAYS, flashback 8 years ago. I was 6 years old playing for my local football team. Our next fixture was a rivalry against some team which had no chill whatsoever. In the league they had a reputation for committing a foul every game. I was sorta scared but, eh, what could go wrong?
(A lot of things)
I was being fouled left, right and centre, always me. However, we were winning 1-0 at this point. A few minutes goes by and I’m still a victim and we were level at 2-2 now. The goalkeeper kicks the ball over to me. It was a little high so I had to head the ball to my teammate Jayden. I leap in the air to realise an opponent was trying to get there first. I about to head the ball when... he did it. He stuck out his leg with force and kicked me right in the chest with the underside of his shoes (which had studs). I am not lying when I said it hurt more than tearing my groin a year earlier and dislocating my elbow... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm thinking about buying a pair of mma sparring gloves for karate and I can't think of anything wrong with doing that but there may be something I've missed. Thoughts or objections?
My ruling is that this bop officially slaps
Just noticed that karate kid is now on Netflix UK. Not sure about US. Could this mean that cobra kai will be streaming on Netflix? What do you guys think?
Has anyone seen the Karate Kid Animated Series? If you have, how is it? I might watch it, since it's been confirmed that there are going to be some references to it in Cobra Kai Season 3.
Edit: That was so much fun everyone, I had a great time reading your comments and questions! Thank you for joining me. Please don’t forget to check out Asian Americans on May 11 and May 12 on all your local PBS Stations!
Hey there Reddit! I am Tamlyn Tomita and thank you for being here with me! You can see me in "Star Trek: Picard"🖖 and you can hear me as Inspector Tezuka in "Duck Tales" and as one of the narrators for the upcoming PBS 5-part documentary "Asian Americans".

I am excited, honored, and kinda sorta nervous for my very 1st AMA here on May 8th at 12pm PT/3pm ET and look forward to answering any questions you may have for me! If you want, you can follow me on Twitter and Instagram to be updated on my next projects, but I'm really not that interesting.... keep reading on reddit ➡
I know tv and movies have shown badasses using karate chops in fights but I'm curious if they are actually used in real life be it in a competition or in self defense.
Hello so I am interested in learning karate but I’ve never done any martial arts in the past( apart from kickboxing when I was 9-12 but I forgot everything) I’m a 17 year old girl that’s not very fit and I tried looking for YouTube videos that talk about how it’s like doing karate etc but I couldn’t find any. Only Karate teachers that show us some moves. So if there’s any Karate related youtubers could you please tell me. Also the fact that I’m not very flexible is a problem at the beginning or I will learn with time & experience? Thank you

I shall start a list here of styles as named above.
Kyokushin Kaikan (the International Karate Organziation) - formed by Mas Oyama in 1953
Byakuren Kaikan (the International Karate-Kempo Federation Byakuren) - the White Lotus Kempo school founded by Masayasu Sugihara, a former student and bodyguard of Shorinji Kenpo founder (So Doshin), in 1984. Shorinji Kenpo is a system which prohibits competing and thus Sugihara attempted to secretly fight in a Seido Kaikan tournament in 1983 to test his skills. Although he won, he was found out, and had to leave Shorinji Kempo. Although his organization teaches Shorinji Kenpo techniques and practices, the sparring and competitions are Knockdown Karate rules similar to Seido Kaikan.
Shin Karate-Do (All-Japan New Karate Do Renmei) - the K-2 Gloved Karate organization was formed in 1985. I believe the rules are similar to K-1 but with a do-gi. I do not know the lineage.

With quarantine still in full effect, and Zoom sing alongs popular amongst celebs, could we have a ton of us singing “It’s Karate Time”? We can each take a few lines and put it together... Just a thought!
They were terrible movies where the storyline was forced, corny and disingenuous. Daniel was an asshole and nobody wants a tv series based loosely on a has been, overrated film series from the 80’s.
Hey yall. Hope you folks are well. So, with the quarantine having gone on, it's given me time to reflect on things in regards to how I have pursued martial arts and just my life in general. And taking into account years of family dysfunction BS(which hasn't ceased unfortunately) as well as my initial financial situation(initially trying to balance school and work while still living at home meant martial arts was on and off) made me realize how not having a solid plan for how to go about things really hindered my progress in all areas and seeing martial arts should have taken a back burner till I was able to get some clarity. And in my teens(turned 20 on the 12th) I had a style hopping habit as I got really into being picky about McDojos and such and didn't have the most realistic expectations.
While I had picked up Kyokushin in January(and had to commute close to 45 minutes) I see that's not sustainable long term and I also my finishing EMT program is starting up and after that's wra... keep reading on reddit ➡
Prior to being diagnosed (2019) I had quite a few tattoos set, large one on my back, medium ones on my arms, and small ones all around. Never suffered from the pain they cause, never had any complications whatsoever. Additionally, I also do martial arts, and never had trouble there either (except occasional light-headedness, trouble taking deep breaths, muscle fatigue/weakness, but never a crisis).
About the tattoos: I am planning to have a few new ones done, and I wonder: how much should I worry? Obviously, I will triple-dose, but I wonder if I should consider something like doing waaaay smaller bits per session in order not to have a huge patch of damaged skin in one go, which is also open to mild infections.
Anybody experience with tattoos (or sunburns or similar skin lesions)?
And about my martial arts training: how much should I dose, say, for a karate competition?
Hope others benefit from this (amusing) post!
