After that you usually end up on the ground. Its better to be a jack of all trades then a master of one, in this situation in my opinion. Not saying that you have not had your share of fights, but I have seen enough and been in a few to know the knockout videos you see on youtube are rare. Most fights dont end in one punch unless one is highly skilled or very lucky. Again another tool is all that is as well.
That’s why I think its good to be well trained in a good striking art and in a good grappling art. MMA does have its uses but what I think its best used for is if a person already has a background in a striking art and in a grappling art and it can help them combine their styles.
And how about not being a jack of all trades but master of few? Not just with the martial arts but with prepping in general.
This was the mean reason that MMA exist today, to show a person how strike and grapple and how to move between striking and grappling and not resorting to one discipline that they may have more time in. Most MMA gyms will teach you everything you need to know with every little training up front. It would help if you have some prior training in a discipline, but it’s a lot of time not necessary.
The master vs jack argument is something that is another argument all together. First as a small business owner I have to be a master at what I do to get the work coming in, but I have to be a jack of a lot of different trades to make the whole business that I run by myself work properly. When I worked at my first job out of school we all have a hand in all the aspects of the job, the job itself, the billing, invoicing, customer service, IT, to name a few. That way if one of us was to be out all of us could jump right in and finish what the other was doing. Yes it great to be a master of a few things, but as a prepper you need to be good at a lot of other things too. Unless you have a small army that will be there with you. As a prepper you need to cross train/learn new skills to be good at a lot of different things, fire starting, first aid, basic handyman repairs, and self-defense. I maybe be good at these, but I’m not a master of any.
