And of course this is for real, not some spar in a match or ring. I am asking for your opinions. Of course I'm talking about the Specialist Arms Services, the kind that do the "undercover" work. Here in Australia we have one of the best of their kind. TheMantis
    Il admit u have alot more fitness from the military because i was going to be a Royal Marine but now i am a trainee Personal Fitness Trainer and the truth is its not the militaray that does it for you its yourself how hard you push yourself and how much you practice for instance i practice everyday and work out all the time and ive bin told by many different Martial arts teachers my kicks are amazing and effective this was by a 7th dan and by Tae Kwon Do instructor he actually tried to get me to come to Tae Kwon Do but i wud never leave my club because i trained and became what a am today because of them.. so if u want to be a marine fine but just remmember one thing when u are in the system u can't get out

    I have to completely disagree here.
    All soldiers are Martial artists, but not all martial artists are soldiers.

    A Karate-ka is someone that takes karate, but that does not make him a true martial artist. It just means that he knows karate.

    Someone that studies guns, may have a lot of knowledge about different models and how to shoot, but that doesnt mean they know how to hunt and track a person.

    Martial Arts is so much more than just learning how to fight. It also includes situational awareness, and battle strategies.

    A true martial artist studies the art of war, not the art of fighting. This includes learning from history, your opponent, and yourself.

    If a person were to follow the Art Of War, they would be considered a martial artist, whether they knew Karate or not.

    I could dare to say that a martial artist not even need to know how to fight at all, rather he could just be a commander of an army, or a dictator.

    So do soldiers make good fighters..that depends on the soldier. A group of soldiers standing together, and fighting together would definitely be better of than a group of thugs attempting the same outcome. However, when you separate these soldiers....one on one, they are just regular people.

    I do agree with you that "as soon as he walks into the room you can tell he's a killer". I know that 1000 mile stare more than I'd like to admit. But a person need not be in the military to kill people. I'd rather face someone that killed people during wartime, than someone that kills people in their own hood.

    Each individual is different. The military may make great martial-artists whether or not those individuals excell in H2H combat. Its all about teamwork against greater adversity.
    i think this sums it up.

    Do soldiers make better MA ists?

    Definitely.

    They are more disciplined, in better shape and have stronger fight instincts.

There is no way to solve a fight with only knocking them out, giving a nasty shock from a fitst or even break their legs, killing is only answer that is what you must do to fight a man down. If you don't know how to kill people instantly you are uncapable and pussy.
    Sarcasm well received...lol.

    Really, its better to get up and walk away from bad, stand-offish people. Its even harder when they tempt you and make threats to your face.

    I'd rather sparr/grapple 1,000 challenging rounds in a year with real fighters of different levels and shake my partners hand afterward, demonstrating good sportmanship and true character than loose control, break the law, get injured and incarcerated over a name someone called you. Words come freely, but bail? medical bills? lawyer fees?

    What do you have to prove?

    Nope, as long as you can keep up you can stay in. BRC is what all operators-to-be have to go through and pass.

    They should have given you the key to the city for beatin' the stupid punks.
