Does Mixed Martial Arts Really Work?
In a most interesting testimony at the George Zimmerman trial, George’s Mixed Martial Arts instructor says that his student was physically soft, and didn’t really know how to punch.
This is a fascinating piece of information, and may impact upon the case.
On television George Zimmerman looks chubby, certainly expanded from the pictures of him taken after he allegedly killed Trayvon Martin.
Could somebody overweight and soft taken on somebody young and (presumably) in shape? And do it without even bruising his knuckles?
On the contrary, Trayvon Martin had the bruised knuckles, and George Zimmerman, who had taken Martial Arts for a year, had the bruised face.
This must have been difficult testimony for the Mixed Martial Arts instructor, whose name is Adam Pollock.
He described George as a pleasant fellow who was overweight. Not much muscle or strength. And, after a year, he doesn’t know how to hit somebody.
This makes the instructor look bad. That he could teach somebody for a year and not enable him to defend himself, nor even know how to punch.
Still, whether the Mixed Martial Arts instructor is bona fide or not, whether the MMA is workable or not for real street defense, whether the mixed martial arts instructor was merely defending for a friend and ‘slighting’ the truth, all bypasses the main thing: the black eyes and the broken nose decorating the face of the defendant.
Perhaps it would have been better had George taken some courses from Monster Martial Arts.
