Tuhon Tom Kier of Sayoc Kali On Conditioning

Let me start off and say, It is better to be in good physical shape, both with strength and cardio. And I would be a better fighter if those traits were better in me.

I'm overweight and out of anything that would be called good shape.

If I was to fight myself, my other self, who is just like me but in better shape, I lose. I can definitely lose in real life of course as well.

I am an advocate of being in shape, and have trained boxers to fight and wrestlers and pushed them to get in shape for competition.

With all that being said. I have in my many years of fighting in real life, in bars bouncing and on the street with no rules. And a conservative number would be in the 500 fights range. I have rarely fought anyone in worse shape than myself, and I have never lost one of these fights. So all those guys who were in better shape than me, LOST. In fact many of the fights started with the other guy saying something like " You FAT F#@K, I'll kill you!!!" And 3 seconds later crying that he's had enough, that's reality.

I have lost many competitions with the many rules and matched opponents. I've been knocked senseless by my boxing instructor and lost 1000's of wrestling matches, counting practice matches, as well as real matches. Some of these I lost because I was out of shape. But that's not reality.

Remember real life is different, there is no rule book, no bell, no ref to start it or stop it if you are losing bad. Most of these fights are won before they start, because of knowledge and tactics, sometimes intimidation and misdirection, superior weapons or weapon technologies, training, calmness that comes from experience, etc. Few fights go so long that cardio is a factor, I would say my one on one fights last an average of 3 seconds from first contact. As out of shape as I am, I can do almost anything for 30 seconds, ....more than enough time.

So does being out of shape make me a worse fighter, absolutely. Does that mean I can't fight, absolutely not. Anyone who wants some can come to get it and find out.

with respect

I have been in a few scuffles, and I gotta say you couldn't pay me enough to take that dude on.

ok, Ive seen this man in action on DVDs,you tube and the like.He is in a word 'impressive".I hope to meet him one day.I hope to train with him one day.The FACT remains he would FEEL alot better if he dropped a hundred pounds or so.I see nothing wrong with feeling better as a whole while slaughtering all who step to him.

Im sure the only thing that could possibly be a real threat to this man is his physical state.

1) The guy is massively overweight.

2) "With all that being said. I have in my many years of fighting in real life, in bars bouncing and on the street with no rules. And a conservative number would be in the 500 fights range. "

How proud he must be.

What does this say about Tom Kier as a person? This is the kind of guy who gets gutshot in a dark roadhouse parking lot.

Maybe if the guy drops 200 pounds or so (another conservative number) he won't be walking through life with such a chip on his shoulder, because, like, for FUCK'S SAKE.

Sounds like Worg has a humongous chip on his shoulder himself.....likely one of those fratboy tough guys who got knocked the fuck out by the fat bouncer at some roadhouse bar somewhere so he's nursing his 'Gutshot in the dark roadhouse parking lot' fantasy after his delusions of being a tough guy got deflated.....FUCK'S SAKE!

It is a fact that people with poor cardo and muscle endurance strength would probably not do well in a physical fight. But when you put the technology of weapons into the fight physical fitness becomes very insignificant. Futhermore, tactics also can play a role as in the case of an untrained individual. Body fat can be a useful "weapon" in a fight. For instance, you could strike a very fat person with a rattan stick on his body and not be able to stop him before he closes range with you. Then its grapling and striking. An effective strategy would be to dance around such a person with Ali footwork and stay in long range and strike until they've had enough or just go for the head fromt the get go.Another aspect to consider is "sumo" strength. Sumo wrestlers are strong and know how to use their weight to their advantage.
