    If you see a knife, the best defence is to run.

    Trying to disarm a knife weilding nutter is suicide.

    A Muslim man should be physically fit and prepared to defend his deen, his wealth or his life. And for every matter, there is preparation.

    To that effect, I recently started studying Muay Thai and also a little BJJ on the side. I encourage everyone to do the same.
    Not only that, I think all Muslims should be able to defend themselves, particularly when racism and bigotry towards Muslims is at an all time high. You should also hit the gym.

    Get stronger and biger + do martial arts = you will likely to be stronger than the average joe on the street.

    When studying a martial art (and I loved martial arts) be aware of teh religious sybolism that it entails.

    My current stance is that dont send your kids to do martial arts where bowing is involved (which is a lot of them) we can only prostrate to allah swt.

    The bowing to the senseii etc is wrong from what I understand.

    and Allah knows best

    I dislocated my elbow. Will BJJ increase my chances of injury?

    They don't have any classes here. Or actually they do, but they have mixed men and women, and that causes a lot of problem. They say that "a woman will not only be attacked by women but by men too so there's no point in teaching women only". So instead of having classes for women and concentrating on how women should eh..shock their opponent and RUN AWAY ( I don't know any woman who would have physically beaten a man - mostly they seem to just kick nuts and run away) they force women to get molested on sight. Another point that I asked from the teachers was that men won't hit/attack women unless they have hate for women in general. Men want to be "gentlemen". I noticed this when I went to karate lessons. It was impossible trying to do ANYTHING because the boys WOULDNT HIT. How can you learn to block an attack if it comes in a speed of a snail? YOU DONT. So I ended up always practicing with my sister, and we beat the *piiip* out of each other every day anyway. So I had to stop the karate. I felt sorry for it but didn't have a choice - my age group was getting too old.

    I'd like to participate in kick-boxing, but they FORCE women to wear shorts...so lol, no.

    When I do find something that concentrates on using the strong points in women and not the weak points I'll go running participate!

    I am in a Kung fu school, and I have been training with the same teacher for over 4 years. I am now a close student to the teacher which means he teaches me more of the style and chinese medicine. In my position I must help the school grow by trying to get more people at the school. My intention is to get the people in the school so they can learn self defense.

    Best Paddle Board

    You have to be careful because some styles of martial arts have something to do with jinns!

    How would that be when Humanity does not predate Islam?

    Re: Islam and martial arts

    I recommend: FMA/IMA, escrima, grappling of all kinds (especially catch-wrestling for the body mechanics), Muay Thai, BJJ and westen boxing.

    I see that you went with the FMA. A good choice.

    Martial arts are a means of inflicting violence upon others. This trait and ability is not teh sole property of any people or religion. Man has been pretty good at violence and devising effective means of delivering it the world over regardless of race, religion, creed, etc.

    Some arts are more closely associated with Islam such as Silat, Escrima (moro), Hui style Gung fu and the like. They are however, just flavours of already existing arts.

    Arts that involve "magic" are generally associated with Jinn use at high levels. Although some are just people spiritually enhancing a certain aspect of their being to the point of being borderline supernatural. Like some Silat practitioners cutting their own tongues and seemingly not feeling the pain through the strength of their own will.

    Chi, Ki, Qi inthe supernatural sense is debatable as even existing. Energy, energy flow, explosion is the more practical terms used for what many of the "eastern" arts term chi and does exist. A lot of the stuff attributed to "chi flow" is just old fashion good body mechanics.
