New Movie Pairs Ronda Rousey with Pencak Silat Action Star, Iko Uwais

pencak silat baltimore

Shortly after Ronda Rousey’s spectacular victory over Cat Zingano, Peter Berg announced that he will be producing a film, called “Mile 22,” featuring Rousey and International Silat Superstar, Iko Uwais. In a March 2nd article, “Variety” quoted Berg as saying, “I am a huge fan of what Gareth (Evans) and Iko did on both ‘Raid’ films, and I’m very excited at the possibility of working with Ronda and Iko to create a film in the spirit of this new wave of combat cinema emerging from Indonesia.” The movie will feature Rousey as a CIA agent, who teams up with an Indonesian police officer to fight extreme government corruption.

The Indonesian fighting style of Pencak Silat lends itself well to the big screen. As a traditional martial art, it is known for exotic and graceful movements, but its vicious and diverse range of techniques, including a heavy emphasis on knife fighting, give it a strong combative element. Silat’s brutal elbow and knee attacks are reminiscent of other Southeast Asian styles, such as Muay Thai. It also includes a strong emphasis on takedowns and destructive joint locks. Perhaps Silat’s most unique and distinctive feature is its penchant for kicks and sweeps launched from a low crouching or kneeling position. These types of skills were on full display in the famous elevator scene in Uwais’ 2009 feature film, “Merantau.”

Already popular in many parts of Europe, Silat is still relatively rare in the U.S., but “Baltimore Martial Arts Academy” is fortunate to have a program, teaching the art of Pencak Silat Mande Muda. Please come join us to learn more about this exciting and fast-growing art.

Human Hands Evolved So That We Could Punch Each Other

Human hands evolved so we could punch each other
http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn23018-human-hands-evolved-so-we-could-punch-each-other.html?full=true&print=true
Journal reference: Journal of Experimental Biology, doi:10.1242/jeb.075713

23:00 19 December 2012 by Sara Reardon

Forget toolmaking, think fisticuffs. Did evolution shape our hands not
for dexterity but to form fists so we could punch other people? That
idea emerges from a new study, although it runs counter to
conventional wisdom.

About the same time as we stopped hanging from trees and started
walking upright, our hands become short and square, with opposable
thumbs. These anatomical changes are thought to have evolved for tool
manipulation, but David Carrier at the University of Utah in Salt Lake
City has an alternative explanation.

He says there are several possible hand shapes that would have allowed
greater dexterity, making it less clear why we ended up with the hands
we have. But only one hand shape lets us make a fist with a thumb as
buttress.

Among primates’ hands, ours is unique for its ability to form a fist
with the thumb outside the fingers. The fingers of other primates’
hands are too long to curl into their palms, and their thumbs are too
short to reach across the fingers. So when apes fight, they are far
more likely to wrestle or hold their opponent down while others stomp
on him, says Carrier.

To test the importance of fists, Carrier and his colleagues recruited
10 athletes and measured how hard they could hit a punching bag using
a normal fist, a fist with the thumb stuck out, and with an open palm.

The athletes could generate more than twice the force with a normal
fist as with the thumb-stuck-out fist, because of thumb’s buttressing
role. There was no difference in the force they could generate with a
normal fist and with an open palm, but Carrier says it’s possible that
a fist concentrates the force into a smaller area and so does more
damage.

Cause or effect?

Mary Marzke of Arizona State University in Tempe says the study is
interesting, but it far from proves that the ability to make a strong
fist was the main driver behind the evolution of our hands’ shape. It
is more likely that it was a useful side effect of a whole suite of
modifications.

She points out that apes strike with the heel of their hand when
knocking fruit out of trees. Carrier’s study didn’t assess the force
that the heel of the hand generates, but if it turns out to be as good
as a fist, it becomes less clear that our hands evolved so as to be
perfect for fist-making, Marzke says.

But if the hypothesis is true, Carrier thinks it could explain another
mystery. It has long been unclear why high levels of testosterone
cause men’s ring fingers to be longer than their index fingers. He
says the finger-length ratio makes sense if it generates a better
fist. This would make dominant males even better fighters.

Baltimore Martial Arts Charles Gamble to Fight for Title at Cage Wars 5

Jackson Duncan

On March 11, 2011 Charles Gamble will be fighting for the XFE Title. Charles will be fighting Jackson Duncan fresh off of a win over Mike Jenkins at Cage Wars 4 were the fight lasted 3 rounds and went to a decision. Charles will have his toughest fight to date. Duncan who has six mma fights has the experience needed to win. Duncan now has 4 wins and 2 loses and will collide with Charles Gamble 1 win and 1 loss at Harrahs in  Pennsylvania. The much bigger Duncan has won his last fight by controling Mike Jenkins on the ground. Charles will have to use his footwork and speed to control the fight. I predict Charles’s cardio will allow him to constantly put on the pressure giving him the win. I hope everyone can come to support Charles. For more information contact Herb or Gary or visit http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/mma.cfm?go=events.detail&eid=b3120976-b4f9-47e8-b696-6d43b0be1d88

Cain Velasquez, Diego Sanchez, Paulo Thiago and Daniel Roberts earn $70K for UFC 121 performances!!!!

Four fighters earned an extra $70,000 for their efforts at UFC 121 on Saturday night, as Cain Velasquez, Diego Sanchez, Paulo Thiago and Daniel Roberts earned “Fight Night” bonuses.

Velasquez took home the “Knockout of the Night” for his TKO victory over Brock Lesnar in the night’s main event. The first round finish earned Velasquez the UFC Heavyweight Championship, and he now sits atop the division with a perfect 9-0 record.

Diego Sanchez and Paulo Thiago earned the “Fight of the Night” on the event for their extremely exciting three round bout on the night’s pay-per-view card. Sanchez, who came into the fight with back to back losses, survived a couple of submission attempts from Thiago and took over the fight in the grappling department in the second and third rounds. Sanchez finished the fight with an exclamation point, getting to mount and raining down punches until the round ended.

Roberts took home the “Submission of the Night” for his excellent anaconda choke victory over Mike Guymon on the night’s preliminary card. After securing the choke against the cage, Roberts used a gator roll to bring Guymon down and lock the hold on, forcing the tap.

Cain Velasquez stops Brock Lesnar in the first round to capture UFC Heavyweight Championship

The hype leading into UFC 121’s main event was focused on Cain Velasquez’s opportunity to be the first Mexican Heavvy Weigth Champion. Well, he not only accomplished that feat, he did it in dominant and impressive fashion, stopping Brock Lesnar in the first round of their Championship bout.

Lesnar came out aggressive, trying to shoot in almost immediately. Velasquez held off the attempt, but Lesnar stayed in close. He landed a couple of knees in the clinch and then completed a takedown. But Velasquez got back to his feet almost immediately.

Lesnar stayed after him, and got a double leg takedown against the cage. Velasquez popped right back to his feet, however, and after an exchange on the feet Velasquez shot in and got the takedown. He landed some hard punches on Lesnar’s back before Lesnar tried to work to his feet. As he got to his feet, he stumbled across the cage and Velasquez pounced.

Velasquez continued his assault on Lesnar against the cage. He landed shots in spots, and made sure to pick his opportunities. He bloodied and battered Lesnar, who could do nothing more but cover up against the cage, and finally Herb Dean stepped in to call a stop to the fight. The win gave the undefeated Velasquez the Championship victory at 4:12 of the first round, and he’ll now face off against Junior Dos Santos sometime in 2011.

For Lesnar, it’s back to the drawing board. But he gave Velasquez credit for being the better man on this night, and said he’d work his way back. As for Velasquez, he’ll celebrate the win with his fans, both latino and otherwise.
