in the real world maybe, but in one piece more swords = stronger technique

Aaron Martinez
Aaron Martinez

It doesn't look cool either. How does he even use the mouth sword at all? Not to mention Oda is just shit at drawing sword fights.
zoros new super move is he runs at his opponent, and then he's behind him in a dumb pose and he won
Wow amazing I love it. How does he come up with this? All sword fights should be like this.

WWE fights, maybe.

Thomas Perez
Thomas Perez

He literally spins like a top, and uses the free hands and feet to move as he bounces around. On the top of that, he throws his weapons, and freely let weapons in joints fly, and some times catch them in hands or feet.

The main impracticality stems from the one directional motion and lack of vision. He could do a lot more with a longer weapon paired with something like a dagger or claw.

yes, I'm sure somebody got suplexed into unconsciousness in an actual fight, this is a thing that happened.

look kid, wrestling is cool, but if you're "fighting" under rules that don't allow pokes to the eye or kicks to the nuts, you aren't doing actually effective "fighting techniques".

Benjamin James

I don't seem to get your point, you're telling me that no olimpic fighting is worth using in "real life" cuz it does not contain kicks to the nuts or poking of eyes?

Nah. When you rapidly decelerate it can cause organ damage from your shit slamming into your ribs, let alone the actual breaking of bones and joints from impacts. 3dmg is pretty neat concept though.

The best martial art in the world is Krav Maga, which has no tournaments because it's only purpose is killing the enemy by any means necesary.
Krav Maga /krɑːv məˈɡɑː/ (Hebrew: קְרַב מַגָּע [ˈkʁav maˈɡa], lit. "contact combat") is a self-defense system developed for the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) that consists of a wide combination of techniques sourced from aikido, judo, boxing and wrestling, along with realistic fight training.[1][2] Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and it's extremely efficient[3][4] and brutal counter-attacks.[5]
Literally self defense that focuses on counter-attacking. Not 'for killing people' you underage, murderers and military men do not kill people using their hands ever unless they have to.

Why don't you learn a thing or two before shitpost and get BTFO.

Hudson Reyes
Hudson Reyes

Strong guys you see in the gym could pick it up

What guys do you know can pick up 400 lbs? Maybe a select few who are body building. And if they can lift 400 lbs they wouldn't be able to keep it held up for more than a few seconds at best, you're greatly overestimating the strength of the human body.

Caleb Morris
Caleb Morris

Guts can pick up and swing around 3 of me with one hand

A-ah-aaaahhh

Charles Williams
Charles Williams

What guys do you know can pick up 400 lbs
Not him but lots, just because of the place I work. Lots of guys there are jacked and/or on steroids. Like the user said, wielding it is another story, but just to pick up 400lbs isn't as brutal as you think. With one ending resting on chains or the ground, I can lift and slightly push a pack of wood up that weighs more than a thousand pounds, and I'm not very strong.

Matthew Stewart
Matthew Stewart

I don't know what is Krav Maga so I searched it on Wiki and now I'm a fucking expert on martial arts
pathetic

military men do not kill people using their hands ever unless they have to
yeah that's why they fucking train like that, because in war you never know in which situation you will end you fucking retarded piece of shit

Luis Anderson
Luis Anderson

And you somehow disproved my point about Krav Maga not being a 'killing method' in that bitch post where? Oh that's right, just semantics and more 'it's the best in the world' talk that I was clearly avoiding too because you can't even define or proerly use the word 'best.'
Y-you quoted a source, that means you only read that source that only read it now
Insert smug reaction face here.

Carter Kelly
Carter Kelly

Street fights are stupid as fuck, a suplex could actually work if you know how to do it beforehand. Anything that isn't pants on head retarded will work as long as you're strong enough to pull it off.

People who are into bodybuilding won't be able to lift that much ( well it's not that they can't, just that they won't ), if you aim for aesthetics you should be lifting less than that and focusing on lowering your bodyfat.

That being said any strong guy at a gym can lift 400lbs in deadlift, I'm pretty damn skinny and I can still lift 225 lbs for one rep though

Ian Perez

Go read from tekken de tough faggot. Wrestling pro or armature is one of the most effective things to in a fight. No one can fight gravity motherfucker.

Henry Cox
Henry Cox

No, he turns around too much and his arms are too wide apart. Twin sword techniques need to be more reserved in movement since it's basically a sword and shield esque fighting style.

it's hard to turn your body fast to avoid thrusting attacks, like that of lancer, when your arms are raised parallel to your shoulders, not to mention exposing your sides.

Too many amateur wannabe boxers do this as well.

Easton Davis
Easton Davis

Inoki doesn't fuck around he loved to prove that wrestling was superior

Blake Thompson
Blake Thompson

Flying kicks in general are impractical to being with as they're hard to connect and you're wide open when you miss, but with this particular one when you don't hit properly (or likely even if you do) you're gonna land on your back unless you're ridiculously agile. And I'm not even sure it hurts much more than kicking with one leg for starters.

Evan Cruz
Evan Cruz

Desu. But WT is almost like a sport series so nah?

Joseph Moore
Joseph Moore

It's meant to be a one-off attack. Kuzuki was raised for the sole purpose of performing a single assassination and them promptly tossed away soon after.

Which is probably the most stupid and impractical thing of all, but Nasu loves stupid and impractical shit. He never misses an opportunity to point out how utterly stupid and impractical magi are.

Evan Howard
Evan Howard

wasn't this just flicking? That's a real strike though.

Brandon Thompson
Brandon Thompson

Aren't derringers designed to be one or two shot holdout pistols which may or may not be large caliber or loaded with exotic ammo to take down the enemy when they're off guard?

Like say, when you have a derringer belt buckle firing two explosive .357 magnum rounds into some idiot's gut.

Brandon Morales
Brandon Morales

I'm not talking about the actual technique shown in the anime ( of course that'd be impractical, he's fighting with two short swords against a spear ) . I'm talking about the concept behind his fighting style.

He basically leaves his vitals wide open so he knows the opponent will strike there, and thus already knowing where the opponent will strike you can easily block it, thus allowing him to keep up with heroic spirits leagues above him like Lancer.

The only problem being if you fail you fucking die.

Thomas White
Thomas White

The suplex isn't just a pro-wrestling move, it's a legit move in grappling martial arts.

Gabriel Lewis
Gabriel Lewis

German suplex is pretty pro wrestling

Brayden Gutierrez
Brayden Gutierrez

That's better executed and thought out with Saber (although it fails spectacularly against Zero Lancer)

Archer's fighting style of high risk high reward would make sense if his weapons weren't so ridiculously short for that job. His weapons are lighter and smaller with wider blade. He should be aiming to deflect, not purposefully expose for a counter.

Speaking of one off kill moves that makes no sense. Concept is cool, but the pool cue katana holding bugs the shit out of me.

Owen Rivera

The dumbest one was when he fought barehanded and he still did a Gatotsu with his fist.

Jaxson Butler
Jaxson Butler

I think the logic was that it's the only option available for him in a melee fight, since almost all his opponents are considerably stronger than he is and if he tried to block or deflect, he'd just be slowly whittled down.

Wyatt Hughes

Krav Maga isn't even as brutal as boxing or muay thai. It's just a glorified self defense course.

Any martial art that wasn't invented for sport has dirty techniques like aiming at the groin, poking the eyes etc, it's just you can't practice those at sparring and Krav Maga teachers probably won't even teach them properly.

Fun fact: Even if you had the strength to wield it, swinging it would lift you off your feet and fling you along the sword since the sheer momentum would outdo the coefficient of friction on your feet+ground. Unless you weighed a few tons yourself, of course.

Well, most of the JJBA's fighting is done by the Stands' powers. The 'poses' isn't really part of the 'fighting' but more part of the 'style'.

But still, expecting magical powers and creatures to do your fight for you while you contort your body is an impractical fighting style.

Wew lad. You fell for the krav maga meme. The best stand up martial art in the world is Muay Thai, hands down. As for grappling you can't go wrong with freestyle wrestling and Brazilian jujitsu. Krap maga is for neckbeard sperglords who think they won't pass themselves whenever someone will try to attack them with a knife.

Oliver Jenkins

We should combine them and create Muay Maga. Or Krav Thai.

Dylan Davis

Meh. I tried out krav maga for a little bit. From what little experience I had with it, if someone is good with it they become a sort of Jack of all trades master of none. You'll handle yourself in a fight, but you won't have as good stand up as a Muay Thai boxer, you wouldn't grapple as good as wrestler etc. It's good if you wanna be able to not get demolished on the street, but honestly it's always safer to just run the fuck away in a street scenario.

Sane derringers are normal caliber.
Good derringer is barely over normal caliber
Stupid derringers fire heavy rounds(i.e Desert Eagle tier). The reason its stupid is that you need the larger grip to handle the recoil.

Most derringers was firing questionable rounds used in the wild west, usually of lower caliber than normal revolvers. Or normal revolver rounds.
The main use is that its literally the definition of a concealed carry weapon.
Meryl's problem is that:
1. She is carrying so many she would be better off with equal amount of revolvers, due grip weight adding up
2. She has to grab a new derringer and throw away her old ones, for each hand, for each shot.

Oliver Ortiz
Oliver Ortiz

Well hopefully you have a good lead by then.

Elijah Roberts
Elijah Roberts

Eh technically, yes. But you'd be much better off cross training between different martial arts, than doing krav maga. Then you'd have a more solid Base for both grappling and striking. Yeah you wouldn't know all the fancy disarms and shit, but the problem with those is that they don't work. Whenever someone is threatening to kill you, it is nigh impossible to do all the complicated moves that they do with the disarms. Plus, the only way those disarms would ever work is if you have the extreme luck of being threatened by an absolute amateur in terms of knife handling.
Also I dont know the full saying because I didn't grow up in an English speaking country. I just heard a bit of it from my friends and though it was the full thing.

Julian Long
Julian Long

This one of the most practical weapons in the thread.
1. It folds up when you don't use it
2. Its attached to a real/camouflaged weapon
3. A hollow metal ball as counterweight is leathal or maiming on direct hits.
4. Even when used in a lazy way, a direct hit still disables the enemy limb or weapon

Fights aren't hard when you realise that only dumbfucks don't throw the first punch. Most people go down after one punch. Someone comes up and starts pushing you, they want to fight you. Just punch and leave/run

Just plain running doesn't sit well with me, these dickheads need to get knocked out to calm their faggot egos. Especially when they walk around feeling like kings because the penalties for fighting and getting caught are so high in the western world. Cuckold nations I tell you, why would you ever want to protect the worst of your people by stopping innocent people from defending themselves?

Remember lads, you can win a 1v3, but master the 400m running style for anything more than that if you don't have experience

3 on1? You'd need to be fairly good to do that. Unless the three guys are absolute scrubs. If you've managed that, then I tip my fedora to you user San.

Man the number one thing that pissed me off in Naruto is the uchiha's shitty fighting style. Like srs you can look at shit and burn it with inextinguishable flames, why would you want to do anything else?

Jace Scott
Jace Scott

In a group fight vs white people, punching the toughest guy out usually makes them stop

Don't try that with negroes though, they'll just gang jump you regardless

Gabriel Martinez

No why should I? I'm one of the guys standing at the side chuckling how little we have matured as a race when I see two monkeys beat each other up over nothing.

Thomas Gonzalez

why would you want to do anything else
You have to kill your bff to get that power tho. And no homo, it's guy love, I love my bff.

It caps out at a mile, no human can run past that. It's physically impossible.

That's why you just shoot them on the spot.

The track record in Naruto is that the entire of the Uchiha clan is a large gang of complete pushovers.
From all we have seen, we have only seen 3 people who wasn't turbo noobs.

Its even more hillarious once it gets going, when Senju strong body gets revealed.

I pushed a fat kid from my class in the elementary school. He crashed into the door and almost took it out of the hinges, so I think I scored a win
Felt pretty bad about it though
Ain't no rest for the victors

400m dash and then jogging.
And 400m dash in itself isn't a dash, its too long.

Now, jogging? Once a human is trained, there is no limit. With brakes to eat and sleep, there would not nothing stopping a human from permanently jogging until the body parts give up.

Carter Scott
Carter Scott

Thanks for the pro tip. I wouldn't know that since my area has very little black people (Lots of Asian minorities, but they are for the most part chill from my experience with them)

Xavier Gutierrez

Yeah, a win. Against the doors. The fat kid is just your unrealistic weapon.

Brayden Rogers

Some blacks have the honor pvp duels though, and they tell a nigga to step back if he got knocked out.

Boxing isn't a very practical method outside of a boxing match anyways. Street fights are all about tackling

Samuel Green
Samuel Green

Not really. You usually don't want to go to the ground since you never know If the guy you're fighting doesn't have friends around. When you are on the ground, someone can just kick you in the back of the head, and it's Gg.

Alexander Baker

Lincoln Mitchell

Boxing gives you 3 very important techniques:
1. Technique of footwork, which is amazing when fighting somebody who has not trained footwork
2. Trained to deflect, and predict paths of blows
3. Proper technique for punching. A proper punch is a lot stronger than just flailing a arm

Lincoln Johnson
Lincoln Johnson

opposed to getting punched in the back of the head while standing? 1vs3 is gg anyways. at least you can assume the fetal position on the gruond

Owen Long
Owen Long

None of that matters when you just throw your entire body at someone to knock them to the ground and then knee them in the balls over and over.

Levi Cook
Levi Cook

Footwork matters a lot if you fight 1 v 2, or if the other guy got a stick, a club or a knife.
Punching matters a lot, because its the difference between being forked to tackle and just hitting him in lung/neck/side of head/nose

Footwork also matters a lot, because its the difference between getting taken by down a tackle, and deflecting it.
Even if some basic Judo would negate 90% of shit nobody tackles.

Remember: Greatest danger is getting ganked up on. And nobody knows how to fight for shit, so every advantage you get is worse than just running and throwing pebbles.

Asher Morgan
Asher Morgan

Yes, believe it or not user, a powerful kick to the back of the head is worse than a punch.

Lincoln Rivera

Some blacks have the honor pvp duels though, and they tell a nigga to step back if he got knocked out.

What a shame, here in Europe with the sandniggers is not the same. I remember once going a 3 vs 1 too, but my friends were near, 500m or so. And yeah you just need to punch hard the toughest motherfucker and they will be scared... but not step back, just scared. Also since my friends were near it didn't happened anything serious that time.

But a month or so after that it was 4 (me and my friends) against 10 of them, eh that was funny. I was 16 when all that happened btw.

Hunter Cruz

I think this is the most stupid attack in the history of stupid attacks. 1 kick in the nuts and its over

Yeah, 4 against 1. I got hit in the back of the head and some weird standing KO happenned.

CONTEXT KOUHAI

Levi Hughes
Levi Hughes

the fuck are you talking about? Provided you had the physical strength required to use that weapon in battle for long periods of time, it's practicl af
forward thrust instantly limits opponents range of movement by trapping them in the bladed inner semicircle
long reach
can instantly crush enemies physically weaker than yourself with its weight alone, especially when its brought down on them, your pic related
very versatile rotational attacks

its only downside is that its upwards and downward sweeps would be limited by the ground because its so fucking huge. It's perfect for Nnoitara because he's a fucking tall obscenely strong mantis man

Nathaniel Nguyen

Logan Wright

Plus you guys aren't accounting for the moment caused by its center of gravity being far away from the hilt. That shit would be incredibly hard to hold. Its like lifting a cinder block on the end of a stick. It's much more difficult than just lifting the cinder block.

Unless however you learned how to use a sword of that caliber properly and maybe were only swinging in proper circles or something, and breaking it's momentum on the ground.

Anime can figure out ways around the realism if they wanted to be that realistic.

Robert Hughes
Robert Hughes

Unless however you learned how to use a sword of that caliber properly and maybe were only swinging in proper circles or something, and breaking it's momentum on the ground.

You would just lose all the fights when you were trying to gather momentum.

The moment the sword is behind you, anyone with a proper sword could just stab you dead.

Michael Gonzalez

Leo Garcia
Leo Garcia

I used to street fight a lot when I was younger and stupid with a lot of agression to vent, usually relied on getting the first hit in the temple or one of the eyes, followed by tackle to the ground. And then there were times when people pulled out knives, i had two stilettoes with me, but had to fight with them only once, and that was when I quit fighting altogether. I got stabbed, and if I hadn't been prepared beforehand, I would now be dead.

At least it regularly acknowledges how ridiculous it is. Bystanders comment on it every time he takes it out.

Ryan Lee

In elementary school someone made fun of me for liking Cardcaptor Sakura. I used the Hundred Hand Slap E.Honda uses in Street Fighter and gave him a bloody nose and he was crying thinking he was going to die.

Other time I was playing basketball back in highschool and I took the ball from some guy making a play and a few seconds later he punched me right in the face and I was just confused. I asked if he seriously wanted to fight and he just backed off and left. It was a good thing too because there's no way I would have been able to match a punch like that. Typical nigger desu.

Ethan Johnson
Ethan Johnson

More of a weapon than a fighting style, but FUCKING SCYTHES! They take everything that makes mid-range weapon useful and make it impractical.

Matthew Peterson
Matthew Peterson

All the time at school and a few times in a park or somewhere though that was mostly shit carried over from school. While it was never a style I generally had a pattern I could rely on because I have a thick as fuck skull
Headbutt to the nose
gut punch
push away
kick in the head

Asher Martinez
Asher Martinez

Headbutt to the nose
That's something I wish I knew the first time I got in a fight. Hitting someone on the forehead with your forehead is really stupid. Also, if you can, try to find something small and heavy to put in your hand when you punch.

Bentley Edwards
Bentley Edwards

Wire weapen. An ideal example of uselles but cool weapon.

Samuel Ward

And that makes it practical?

Dominic Hughes

I came here to post this

Brody Reyes

Wire looks good until you remember it has no momentum, so it can't be controlled while throwing it.
And since it has no momentum to speak of, you can't drag it left or right.

Isaiah Young

Anthony Sanchez

Usually it's the other way around, user. Most derringers used to be big calibers to compensate for the short barrerl. Not that it helped much, acually.

Xavier Brooks
Xavier Brooks

Once you get past the crappy "let's animate as many weird moves into the catruon as we can" part, it's
rather standard arm deflect followed by straight punch to the nose
Nothing unusual here, user

Oliver Phillips

practical or realistic

William Wright
William Wright

Likely.
There's a reason suplex are actually *forbidden* in many wrestling rules, and it's teh risk of accidental neck fracture.
Of course, wrestlers aren't trrying to kill each other, but a "real fight (Tm)" isn't under such considerations.

Jacob Parker

Concept is cool, but the pool cue katana holding bugs the shit out of me.
The amusing part is that it IS an actual Katori Shinto Ryu move. He's foing it with switched hands, though.

General delinquency and I hanged out in bad parts with my friends, picked fights with anyone not within the group and drank all day. I was 17 when I got way over my head with this 20+ year old jailguy who allegedly shanked someone to death, so I started wearing chainmail under my hoodie, so when he did stab me, it wasn't lethal, I just put the tips of my stilettoes on his lower eyelids and told him to drop the knife and back off slowly or he will never see again. Thankfully we both had enough sense to walk off.

The guy got jailed again, and I never fought again.

Camden Richardson

Some of the earlier Baki stuff actually had some ground to stand on in terms of practicality and realism, nowadays it's just supersonic punches, cavemen and invisible lightsabers

It's returning to realism with Motobe and Jack. Motobe's job so far appears to be to jar the fighters back into reality. There are more ways to cheat than a nutshot.

Jacob Garcia

You remember Motobe was about to use the imaginary sword thing with Retsu, right?

Benjamin Ortiz

He was talking about weight, and the starfish's swords were heavier, why didn't he say they were denser or stronker.

Jeremiah Anderson

I think he was just going to make a point, like Muhsashi did here.

Ryan Jenkins

perfect break of balance before execution, wonder if she trains.

Also, suplexes work in a streetfight because your knees don't touch the ground, and it generally ends a fight

It's not the sword itself that's impractical, it's Gut's superhuman strength that's the real impracticality. If you gave a Grizzly bear opposable thumbs he can swing Dragonslayer like Guts no problem.
