    MMA Instructor Jailed For Sexually Assaulting Minors

    Josh Robinson is a very bad man. The American mixed-martial arts (MMA) instructor was jailed for 4 years on Thursday (March 2) on NINE charges. 3 of them were for sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls, reported Channel NewsAsia.

    Prosecutors during his trial called him a “sexual predator” who “groomed and morally corrupted his young victims” and “coaxed them into having sex with him”.

    Josh Robinson had said he had a fetish for young girls in uniform, The New Paper reported a prosecutor as saying. “He told her ‘I have wanted to find as young as possible. I think 13 would be ultimate. But 15 is youngest’,” the prosecutor added.

    Love For Film

    Josh Robinson had filmed himself sexually assaulting the 15-year-old girls. The police also found 321 child porn videos at his place — believed to be the largest collection of these videos found belonging to one person in Singapore.

    The sleazebag even showed a 6-year-old girl a video of an explicit sex act, while he was on bail.

    Josh Robinson obviously loves film — he used to be lead artist at LucasFilm in Singapore, and worked on digital assets for the Clone Wars series, according to a resume on his blog. He also worked at visual effects company Double Negative.

    His love for video extends to his MMA career too — he uploads MMA video tutorials on his website and YouTube channel.

    Protect Yourself

    Despite Josh Robinson being a paedophile and sexual predator, we think his MMA video tutorials are useful for teaching people how to protect themselves — ironically, against people like him.

    So here are some Josh Robinson videos that will help fend off Josh Robinson.

    Those watching the videos for self-defence tips should put themselves in the place of Josh Robinson (icky as that sounds) and note that the other guy in the video is playing the part of Josh Robinson.

    After countless fights I've been involved in at work with homeless people, gang members, drug addicts etc... I've realised that the most effective straight to the point martial art is boxing. A boxing base with Roman Greco over and under hooking can take you a long way.,, Kicks are secondary.

    Yet, every bouncer I've met says punching is stupid.

    Bouncing effectively is standup wrestling mostly like Greco/Judo unless you want a lawsuit for giving someone brain damage.

    I box though I haven't much over the last year. Shit's dangerous. Even punches with gloves can knock you out, you eat a blow like that flush with raw knuckles and you're talking broken bones needing wires in your jaw. Boxing is no joke, only kids who idolise Bruce Lee don't credit the danger of properly executed punches.
  • WastedWasted Verbal Diarrhetic Joined: Posts: 6,009
    Nobody is saying punches don't work, or that boxing is a joke. It's the most primal reaction, and people are ingrained to punch for good reason.

    This topic has been done to death, tbh.

    Done to death or not lots of people don't credit boxing like they should as it's not exciting enough or it's just punching when there's a lot of technique involved in generating control and power. Boxing isn't just punching.
  • WastedWasted Verbal Diarrhetic Joined: Posts: 6,009
    The footwork, finesse and conditioning is the bigger benefit than a powerful punch, tbh.

    It's has many benefits, but it's not the be-all and end-all of stand-up. You're fucked if your opponent is smart and drops their forehead to meet your fist, for example.

    You don't need a lot of power to break or dislocate a jaw, anyway.

    I actually think boxing is very overated as a martial art. If you consider self defence/ street fight, I believe boxing is one of the worse MA you could learn. It has only one big quality: it is very easy to learn.

    Look if you're being anal one of the biggest benefits in a street fight is completely irrelevant to all martial arts and very well documented, it's size. Even knowing what you're doing biggest man usually wins, that's why people hire big men for security and why combat sports have weight classes. I'm not saying a smaller opponent can't win, I'm just saying being big and having long arms is a huge advantage in a fight.

    You can theory-fight for hours but if they drop you can transition a straight into an uppercut from the opposite hand or a hook if they weave. Boxing effectively requires you can move your hips and feet and that requires you to have correct posture so you can distribute weight between the balls of your feet. Much like pitching a baseball a lot of the power isn't just coming from your arm. Knowing how to box allows anyone to hit harder and more accurately than they would otherwise and vulnerable parts of the body don't generally like being hit hard.

    Nah man. It's not easy, it requires a lot of coordination, it's like a dance executing your own techniques while responding to theirs. That's like any martial art really but boxing is more practical as you can be wearing jeans and heavy shoes and still do it. Boxing is never bad in a street fight, it's incredibly practical and effective, certain wrestling styles are just arguably better as they cause less serious damage and can end a fight more permanently without near killing someone. Being able to wrestle is generally better against larger opponents as well as it doesn't matter how big someone is you can still choke them out. While you can still knock out someone much larger than you dealing with the reach disadvantage, elevation and the fact that minor blows are coming from a lot less mass against a lot more padding around vital organs makes it really sub-optimal.

    It's easy compared to other martial arts because you only learn how to punch, and punching is very natural.

    As for the practicality, any MA will help you in a street fight, but I believe there are better options. The fact that you only learn how to punch means you have a limited arsenal. You don't learn how to kick, knee, or hit with your elbow. You don't learn throws or locks. Even worse, you don't learn how to defend against a kick or a throw.
    Finally, boxing being a sport means you train under certain rules. You train using boxing gloves (and it is quite different blocking with or without gloves), with a point system and fighting only against one opponent.

    Yeah, that will depend on the school and style. Some focus more on takedowns.
