Guys been watching way too much Dragonball Z lol.
Mixed martial arts is often mistakenly regarded as a set of techniques to control, strike, or submit against active resistance. However, too view MMA as a mix of specific effective strikes, pins, submissions, takedowns, etc is to miss the engine.
The heart of mixed martial arts is actually trying things, against active resistance. If you want to see if something works – try it.
The idea is as simple as wheels on luggage, but like wheels on luggage, no one thought about it until the 90s. But some people are still hefting suitcases though airports, and some people are still teaching martial arts techniques without ever trying it against active resistance.
The truly crazy, even scary thing is that the No Touch master in all likelihood is still at it, teaching the same balderdash. The only difference now is he never asks anyone to actually try it.
