Is there any rule in MMA about how loud you can scream? I couldn't find one. Makes me wonder if this could be a useful technique. Say you are in half guard and you cup your mouth around your opponents ear and belt out a sound that could cause hearing lose and/or some discomfort to your opponent giving you enough time to execute a move while your opponent reels in pain from your sonic blast?

Are there any examples of people using screams as a weapon in combat sports?

what about you load up your bones with metal weights? Like how Anderson Silva got his leg reconstructed (with titanium or whatever). what if your break your knuckles. Then reconstruct your hand loaded with heavy metal like built in sap gloves? I think you might punch your hand off

I know you get asked for recommendations a lot but my knowledge of martial arts is limited and I have a bit of an unusual problem. I have a disease that's fused/fusing my vertebrae, the bottom 1/4 of my spine is already fused to my pelvis.

How do I get power into strikes without having to use my spine? The only training I've had is boxing and that was as a kid. Are there any striking disciplines out there that would work well for me given my issues? And as far as learning to escape joint locks, is BJJ the best for that kind of thing?

You shouldn't be using your spine anyway, your hips should stay in line with your shoulders, your torso turns as one unit when you pivot from the balls of your feet to throw a punch. Think of a barrel hanging from a rope, spinning with a plank nailed to it.
BJJ is pretty uber for escaping locks. The only thing I'd compare it to is Judo.

I'd investigate Alexander Technique or Feldenkrais Method, generally, to compensate for your condition. Spinal issues like scoliosis and lordosis are their jam.

Never heard of either of those but they both sound interesting. I have ankylosing spondylitis and I haven't been exercising my back the way I'm supposed to so I should be doing something like feldenkrais anyways.

No no no, the force has to cascade from your heel to the surface of your fist through every available muscle and joint in one fluid motion. Like cracking a whip, where your feet are the handle, and your hand is the tip. Whichever direction your body is oriented in is only a trifling matter of gravity. Ideally, you should probably be pointed towards your opponent as much as gravity allows.

OP, I would advise against martial arts and maybe take up firearms and get a concealed carry permit. Don't just try to work around your injury and think you'll be okay, you won't. You'll get wrecked.

That's the biomechanics behind a power lead, like Bruce Lee and Jack Dempsey. And even then your heel should be off the ground, you can't pivot flat-footed and will put your back out, like OP is trying to avoid.

Per Dave Meltzer:

>ESPN+ will be able to put up all UFC events from 1993 to 2018 up for archives. From 2018 on, they will be able to add their events, but not the events from another partner, nor PPV events, which Fight Pass will have. ESPN+ also won’t have access to the non-Fight Pass library of boxing, kickboxing and other MMA promotions like Pride, Strikeforce and WEC.

So it sounds like ESPN+ users will get a giant UFC archive with their sub at no extra cost. Fight Pass isn't completely dicked, though, as it will still have its own exclusive UFC events, as well as all of the non-UFC events it carries. Fight PAss will also still have exclusive archives of PRIDE and the other promotions UFC absorbed in the past, so no PRIDE NEVER DIE for ESPN+ users.

Meltzer also said the deal is $150 million per year for 15 events, making out for roughly $10 million paid for event, which is more than almost all UFC PPV's pull in buys except for the few mega cards. Meltzer speculates this might cause for less PPV's in 2019 in lieu of these ESPN+ events taking over for some old PPV slots, which means these ESPN+ events will likely be closer to PPV cards in terms of quality and title fights as opposed to FS1 and Fight Night exclusive snorefests.

I was watching a Texan pro wrestling match from the 1950s and this flappy boi pulls out what kinda looks like a prototype crucifix armbar/cross armbreaker. I've long considered it an "MMA" move and presumed it's innovation, or at popularization & appropriation by exhibitionists, was relatively recent (probably Brazilian). Now I'm wondering just how deep the rabbit hole goes.

What's the origin of the armbar, /mma/? What about other common maneuvers? Any especially interesting timelines that've been taken for granted & forgotten?

AFAIK it's a Judo move. BJJ had a lot of Judo in its inception, the Japanese master who taught jujitsu to the Gracie patriarch was a member of the Kokodan.
Judo goes back to 1882, the arm-bar may be in Japanese jujitsu before that, and there's probably variations native to the catch-wrestling that pro-wrestling devolved from, as well as sombo, pancration, and any other country's martial arts and sports that explored submission-based groundwork.
Like Bruce Lee said, “I personally do not believe in the word style. Why? Because, unless there are human beings with three arms and four legs, unless we have another group of human beings that are structurally different from us, there can be no different style of fighting.”

Pro wrestling as entertainment is based on the rules and techniques of the Combat sport called catch wrestling. Catch wrestling is what pro wrestling was when it was real.

It is oldest known to be a mishmash of European styles of local wrestling from throughout Scotland, Wales, and England, etc. both during that period and after there was a lot of cross pollination between styles as guys travelled through other countries from the Middle and Far East.

This kinda looks like a nonsense concession hold but the cross arm bar is a staple of all grappling arts as far back as you can go. It was often taught in localized Japanese systems of jiujitsu which have never been syllabized. Catch wrestling was also never syllabised which is why it almost nearly died out and has a murky history while judo and bjj flourished.

Bjj and judo are seperate martial arts which were separately syllabised from the common ancestor of Kano Jiujitsu, which was a collection of techniques encompassing ground grappling and throwing.

Might be interesting for you to know that the heel hook technique you see in pro wrestling or MMA is a native technique to the martial art of pro wrestling. You can still see the evidence in the name of the technique (“hook”, meaning incapacitating grappling technique, as by joint damage etc, old pro wrestling term). There are some other techniques with cross over terms between catch wrestling or pro wrestling as a martial art, and modern bjj or judo, where the techniques are the same or very similar but have seperate origins and names. Here’s some pro wrestling technique names and their modern title:

Sleeper = rear naked choke
Abdominal stretch = cobra twist = the twister
Front headlock = guillotine choke
Double wrist lock = Kimura lock
Cravat = baseballbat choke

I'm a skinny, 110lb 5'10 motherfucker who wants to learn how to box. Is there any point while I'm this skinny? Do I need to load on weight before I can start training? Also, do you generally go to a boxing teacher or is it something that they offer at gyms? I have amazing reaction times and have been told I can actually deliver a somewhat formidable punch, but I'm wondering if it's not gonna mean anything if I have to use my boxing skills on someone bigger than me. Any tips or general advice for someone looking to get into it?

You go to a boxing gym, nothing more nothing less, some are more like train whenever you want some are more based around classes, some a mixture. It should be a gym that fields amateur boxers, pro-am gyms are a thing in some countries but not all, but as a rule of thumb look for a gym that is tied to your countries amateur body.
And you're a 5'10 bantamweight (I think) that's quite a big advantage over most people that weight, obviously in sparring you'll go with lots of different size people but a good gym they wont be going all out on each other. I'm 115 kg, 6'4 and have sparred people your weight, it's just a skill practice.
Good luck, boxing is great and you'll get out of it what you put in.

you understand in boxing you fight other guys in your weight class, right?

being tall and skinny isn't such a bad thing if you can protect your body. you'll have a reach advantage and it'll be an awkward angle to reach your head.

Paul Gonzalez was a tall flyweight. Of course, if you're serious about this, you'll pack on some muscle.

Best to start training while you're skinny, so you have to rely on technique rather than muscle for power.
The muscle will grow naturally as you train, as long as you eat right.

I recommend Jack Dempsey's book on boxing "Championship Fighting".
