Dim Mak, according to me is a bunch of hot air.

But seriously, I don't think you should train martial arts just to beat someone up

the fighting part of MA is important.if what u want to mean, its just beat ppl, well, i dont like doing that, but if they do that, and start to beat me, i wanna make sure he will think twice before starting a stupid fight. starting a fight just to fight its stupid.but if DimMak is crap, what do u advice me?i wanna a striking martial art with wisdom, not just kick, punch, knee, elbow,etc.and that would givme a very good fighting ability, more agile and fast that strong. its also to complement my bjj.suggestions acepted!

P.S.-whats the base of taijutsu?

what are your goals? Look thier first. if you want to fight, take a combat sport like Muay Thai, BJJ or the like. if you want a fighting martial art their are some good and some bad! If you have a violent nature and like fighting take up a good combat sport.

PS.
Dim Mak is crap and striking point fighting, especially Dillmans style suck ass and are fake.

tks for all. i allready do bjj, but its nature doesnt makesme let all my violent feelings. muay thai looks a pretty good choice, ive though about it and probably go. the only aspect i dont like in MT is it limited number of techniques.correctme if wrong, but theres 8 moves. is it complex, and does it has a technique part, no knowledge.plz some1 clarify me on this, if it has technique, i will go right away to train muay thai!i really need to de somethin about my violent feelings.tks all,specially gurre in the beg, and kensei for the sugestion!bye

MA teaches self-discipline and patience.. A great MA should not teach the pupil to beat someone up with what he learned..

there is alot more moves than 8, there are 8 weapons. if you had one weapon ( a sword) how many moves you think you could do with it?

if you had 8 weapons (fists, elbows, shins and knees) how many moves do you think you could do with them?

there is heaps of technique in muay thai strikes, lots focusing on momentum and technique to squeeze every last bit of power out of the human body while going blistering fast. Muay thai is pretty agressive and will help with body conditioning. hope that helps..

i believe that you would be better served if you took up meditation. calm your violent nature and mature in a pleasant place. stay away from MA for they will keep you from your true potential!

I only teach a student whose objective is to defense himself or to have a healthier body, and not to fight.
If you can find someone to teach you MA knowing your objective, he is not a good MA practitioner.
