its wu-tang clan ish, na im sayin, lol.
Yes I am. And I'm sure at one point it was referred to as just poor technique or nonsensical bullshit
right so what they once thought was bs has even more uses than the one thing being shown here.
Ya'll seen Romero with that 52 last night?
No, the Thai's used to be more open to different specialist Nak Muay, now they are all starting to look generic in their style.....that's one of the reasons they called it the golden age......
That's often how it works out over time:
Muay Thai has root practices that snobby modern people would say looked ridiculous and stupid. That on top of being more open to doing things that would normally be frowned-upon.
I fear it's pretty much going down that road in the West.
It got brought up in brief again:
I try to be open-minded but it looks like Lyte is too focused on getting a fancy block or parry that he's incapable of initiating any kind of offense and would even struggle against a pressure fighter who would stay on him and throw combinations. He probably has years of experience on Daijon yet it seems as though the kid would knock him out if he got serious.
Daijon would knock out most of the people on this board. Lyte had the gumption to see that in person.
I agree with you on this,and while I'm not impressed with Lyte, and I'm not convinced by the 52, but I'll defend him little bit and say that hypothetically speaking Lyte may not be the best example, that could be more a Lyte thing than a 52 thing. Someone else who practises the 52 could be more offensively minded and immediately follow up. Like, Adrien Broner is good at the stone wall, but there's a lot of difference between him and Mayweather.
Lyte is just very committed to an idea, and travels all around the U.S. in commitment to that idea. IMO it's very easy to sit in one spot and criticize a guy like that, or to be a hobbyist and criticize him. But in the Cuban Boxing thread, successful trainers with literally ZERO experience were brought up. Lyte actually has a boxing lineage, but JUST boxing is not the idea he's committed to. The idea in and of itself may be flawed, possibly even fatally so, but good stories and experienced often come out of the results of any person seeing through a terrible idea. lol
