RE: TravelerKai’s Martial Arts Datasheet
Kai can you post a video of that weighted exercise for that nerve/ jaw?


And as far as neck work goes I liked that video because it showed some different variations and movements into and out of the bridge. Thats the key with it. Obviously you master your two basic bridges but after that theres so much more variation,moment,and opportunity from it. I think thats a better route to go than weighted neck work because it will give you more strength in odd ranges of motions and situations,its more fun,and you still increase strength because you cant support harder variations with out making it stronger.

This guy Eero Westerberg - who I believe has been posted about before, he's big into movement, mobility, etc - went to Taiwan to train with a kung fu master called Jiang Yu Shan, aka Hisham Al-Haroun.



I found the body hardening and the chinese medicine-based post-training practices very interesting.

The master's hands and forearms are as hard as rocks. In one of the videos you can see Westerberg comparing hands with him - he couldn't even pinch the skin on top of the master's hands it was so thick and hardened. It's like he's wearing armor.



This guy could probably block a hit with a tire iron and come out with just a bruise, if that. Yet everything is still fully funcional, he didn't lose mobility on wrists, fingers, and so on.

And the master also trains in different martial arts, competes and teaches self-defense, he's not a looney on his mountain top.

It was an interesting perspective into a world I'm not familiar with at all.

I think it's a three-part series - the other videos are on VAHVA's Youtube page.

Yeah that was an interesting video. Strange to see an Arab dude doing that. I bet his Mandarin is awesome too. Even nowadays you probably need some decent Mandarin if you want to learn from certain experts.

His hands are ugly as fuck like Master Pang's hands are. The power is cool but there is always a price....

The white guy looks familiar from somewhere, I cannot remember.

Here is one from Shane @ Fight Tips Channel





You can also make one just for your neck and do those.

You can also do pull ups on a bar with some small weights hanging down your neck too. You get to work your lats, delts, and traps along with the neck doing this.

Only thing I will recommend from Shane's video is to do this stuff SLOWLY! Do not do this exercise fast!

I cannot stress this enough. Plenty dudes have neck and back issues from BJJ/Judo/Wrestling etc. so be careful and never overdo it.

Bridges are good, but they are slow. Like super slow and they are also body weight.

So let's step back and look at this from a S&C standpoint. Even a bodybuilder worth his salt will back me up on this.

If you are going to the gym and lifting weights for your chest, back, shoulders, arms, legs, etc. Why on Earth would you do a body-weight exercise for your neck? Because it is fragile? That's a bad answer. If you only did bodyweight excercise for your legs and used weights for your upper body, wouldn't your body look like shit? You would have chicken legs. Same principle goes for the neck. Don't skip neck day.

Look at guys in the NFL like James Harrison going so far to put weights on his waist!

Anthony Joshua uses chains on a kettlebell. (skip the first 40 secs)





Floyd does it too, but his video is silly. He is bobbing his head to rap music while doing it to show off to the reporters. The point is that he still does it.

When it comes to S&C, you have to be "wholebody" strength as much as possible and you have to highly avoidant of unequal S&C practices to avoid getting injured.

This is a very big topic, but if we look at the NFL for example, you get guys coming out of training camp pulling hamstrings left and right. S&C coach usually gets blamed for it. In an NFL training camp the S&C coach is responsible for running a program. Star players can get away from it sometimes, but regular players have to do what the S&C coach says. If he has guys doing too much of one thing and not enough of another, or similar issues, guys will sometimes end up with the same injuries. When you see 3-5 guys, on the same team, pulling hamstrings, tearing pectorals, etc. it's not a coincidence.

Ever see a lifter work out his quads and hamstrings, does squats, etc. but never ever does calf raises? He better hope he never steps on a venomous snake and try to run away, dude might might over-torque and tear a tendon in his ankle or foot.

I hope I did not confuse you. This is a bigger question than just bridges vs weights.

RE: TravelerKai’s Martial Arts Datasheet
Just to clear up a little bit, the bridge still has multiple points of contact on the mat. The neck weight lift is iso (isolated) and you can directly target the neck muscle itself, which is why you need a small amount of weight to start with, compared to your body weight for the bridge. That is why the neck weight is technically better or more efficient.

RE: TravelerKai’s Martial Arts Datasheet
Thanks I didn't know boxers can have relaxed arms. My instructor never drilled that principle in me. Learn something new everyday Wink

You will see on youtube clips that some of these Russians can break wooden boards.

I understand you're punching from your body when boxing but you're still tensing up under that system. I'm not knocking on boxing it's just that there's no correlation between boxing and systema.

I wouldn't say boxing punches are from the shoulder. You square your shoulder on the release, but it's a whole body movement really starting with a foot pivot.

Nobody punches harder than boxer so I'm curious how systema does it. Unless they're making adjustments for bare knuckle, which has some significant differences.


Relaxed arm is a precursor to un-bendable arm technique. Punching with relaxed arms yields a stronger punch with much less physical exertion (effort).

Some pro boxers have relaxed arm punching so do not think it does not exist in boxing, just that it varies greatly on who trains you. Floyd and Loma both box this way just some quick examples. If you watch film, watch Floyd and Loma and look at their check jabs and short thrown check hooks. Terrance Crawford and Leo Santa Cruz are some other less known boxers you could watch and see those same punches. Leo Santa Cruz is so fucking relaxed he is often smiling while he is fighting.

Un-bendable arm is the natural progression for internal strength, commonly seen in Chinese Martial Arts systems. The best pro/sport example of someone using this would be hands down Anderson Silva. Lyoto Machida is another good example as he floats between the two punch styles thanks to his Karate style. Israel Adesanya might have this skill as well but I am not 100% certain of that yet. For non-sport examples of people like this, too many people to list and most are hardly famous.

The only tensing in a boxing style punch is at the very end of the movement. My fist wouldn't be entirely clinched until impact. Any tensing before that you're going to lose significant power, not to mention tire yourself needlessly.

You mean this akiddo technique? I couldnt think of a real world application for it, and have definitely never seen a ufc fighter use it.

Sorry guys, I can't embed this video, but a very interesting gun disarm where the would be shooter is killed by his own firearm.

I can't really discern the "style" of the intended victim turned shooter, but he has a good knowledge of balance and body dynamics.
