By controlling the sound you’ve got more options to help make unique track or perhaps beat. Dub Turbo provides a wide arrange of sound kits and can be employed to create great sounding beats.

No. If you are 5′ 140lbs, I don’t care how inexperienced he is, you won’t defeat a 6’6″ 260lbs guy unless he has some medical problems.

big guy = slow, simple minded, not trained at all, very cocky
Small guy = Fast, able to manipulate the simple minded, well trained and has no ego.

This is how it is in the movies and SOME of the time in real life.

Yes it is possible that a smaller guy wins over the bigger ones. But bare in mind that Karate is an art use to defend oneself when the need arise; it is NOT to be use to a start fight nor bullying!! Learning the art is a continuous process. You will be able to control your energy but you cannot shoot fireballs out of your hand just like those that you see in televisions or so.

Hellow Homer, i would like to tell you that is very simple to beat a big guy if you have a technique and if you want to. If you train in a martial art that you desire and you are good enough, then you don’t have to be afraid of anyone. If your neighborhood have a wing chun school or a muay thai, hurry up. Wing Chun is the systemn them, then you will beat all the tall guys that challenge you on a fight. of kung fu that Bruce Lee was taught by Yip Man. This martial art is… Read more »

YES. anyone can beat up anyone. it is not a question about SIZE. it is more based on luck, strength, the circumstances and also the ability. anyway, you shouldnt want to beat up 6 footers. and no, you cant shoot fireballs out of your hands but chi concentrationcan be amazing. properly done, it is possible to KILL with only a small tap/push done in the correct area with the correct force.

Very much possible my man. In UFC 5, Gracie fought Ken Shamrock to a draw. Shamrock seemed hesitant to mount an offense, and Gracie seemed content to work from his back for the same gi-sleeve submission and heel-kicks to the Shamrock’s kidneys.

Of course it’s possible. You’re more focused on Hollywood then the reality of martial arts. This is possible with over a dozen martial arts.

yes, of course, teh people i fight at school are all taller than me because they think they could beat me up and try push me around. well, martial arts helps your self-esteem a lot, i can beat up quite a few guys at school who are taller than me. its just i just kicks, high kicks and hopefully smash them. i dunno how tall is 5’7 but im 172 cm tall and not buff at all. only my legs are strong which help me to my victory. stretch if you want to get strong, i can do the splits.… Read more »

I watched this street fight once where some huge bloke came up to this short stotty bloke. The big guy said ‘I have heard of your reputation and I have came here to beat the s**t out of you’. The smaller guy replied with ‘Fair enough, but can I take my coat off first as it was a present from my wife’. The huge guy said ‘Sure no problem!’ When the smaller bloke took his coat off he threw it straight up into the air. The bigger guy looked up at the coat, the smaller guy then jumped up and… Read more »

martial arts isnt about givingthe little guy such a huge ego he thinks he can take on guys bigger than him – it is all about calmness, energy management and avoiding fight situations – it is more purely for self defence if you are threatened – just coz you train in martial arts doesnt mean you guy out thinking you are tough and look for big guys to beat up to make you feel tough – if you are a little guy and do that then you will always be little coz you would be worth nothing in anyones eyes..be… Read more »

of course. I have seen plenty of short guys beat the crap out of guys that are 6 feet tall. however they did not use martial arts , just a few good puches. as for fire being shot out of your hand…….. are you high????/ maybe if you spray perfume or hair spray on your hand and light it, but then it just burns you!
