Posts Tagged ‘the effects of adrenaline on the martial artist’

Okay. Yesterday I used a video of what looked to be a muay Thai fight gone wrong to buttress my point about martial arts techniques and the adrenal response. Many of my loyal readers pointed out that the “fight” in the video was likely staged, as such things aren’t an uncommon attraction in Thailand. Sensing that my friends were right, I submit to you, humble readers, another example of martial arts masters – this time a capoeira practitioner – losing his shit and charging someone like a common bar brawler a few moments after demonstrating the finer aspects of his highly-acrobatic martial art:

So my point remains, master your adrenaline first, your techniques second. If anyone has any similar videos, don’t be shy… share!

Stay safe, good people.
