That leads me to a question about size and strength. The boxer hit the hardest and he looked to be a guy close to or over 200. Size does matter as it relates to physics, mass, accel., etc.
Take a guy who can squat 900 and bench 600. Take a high black belt from a real dojo, not some place that gives black belts to 12 year old kids, who is at the top of his game. Who wins and why? [/quote]
Dude, you’re opening a huuuuuugggeee can o’ worms with that question. My response is this: Who in their right mind would really want to fight either person?
But here’s what I think it comes down to and hopefully we don’t get into the tired old argument that has been beaten by a dead horse with a broken stick: Strength and size and power are quite obviously factors in combat. As is technical prowess. They can each be used to effectively cancel the other. The issue at hand is not which is better, but which practitioner can use his abilities(be it muscle or skill-or both) best against their opponent.
This is when strategy becomes important. And my strategy is to not mess with either the big guy, or the Rexkwondo master, unless I have a gilly suit, a hide site, and a clean shot But seriously, don’t worry about which is better- build both.
Now where can I get my dirty hands on this damn show?
