Really? This is the best you have? Pfft. Killer in this instance is a superlative being used as praise. Example: "That was a killer trick you
pulled on the halfpipe."
"That flip was killer!"
I apologize for speaking in slang if you didn't catch that.
And capoeira is NOT a kickboxing art - we use hands, elbows, eye strikes, and headbutts, too.
True Killing is not an art. Martial Arts as well as specific techniques for attack or self defence dependent on condition and enviroment or
even space...as I brought up with Chain Punching...are still just techniques.
Not sure what you were aiming for here, but it's really rather pointless as the above use of 'killer' was in slang context, not actual killing.
Although capoeira can and has been used as a killing art. It is a street art, used by escaped slaves and criminals, and retains that mentality - the
only rule in capoeira is to be willing to finish what you start, just like in real life and in the streets. None of those use a point system.
I know for a fact that you could take the best Practicioners or Teachers of specific Martial arts as well as the Champions of any Commercial
Fighting League....get the best of the supposed best....put them out side in a field with nothing but their bodies....and any one of the people I
sometimes work with would dispatch them within a matter of seconds.
Everyone know someone who can beat the tar out of the next person. True fighters know the axiom that there is always someone better than you out
there. Bragging that this guy can do XYZ is just hot air and wasted effort.
There is ART...SPORT...TECHNIQUE.....then there are PROFESSIONAL WARRIORS.
I'll give you that one, and it sounded good. Nice, and melodramatic. However, that whole distinction of 'professional warrior' is asking for
problems. Professional means you get paid to do it, which really means that the professional warrior is not anything more than someone who is willing
to fight and kill for pay. Criminals do that daily - its called a drive-by shooting. Or someone getting knifed over a girl, or boy, money, or drugs.
The point is that professional have their on and off time. criminals are on 24/7 and live or die by their awareness. In a modern world, the
streetwise killer has a better chance at surviving than the professional warrior.
just my two cents.
