Eight Seconds or Less

Ask me anything  
Eight Seconds or Less is a martial arts blog that focuses on self-protection, martial arts history, concepts and techniques, MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, as well as other miscellaneous martial arts related topics.

This blog is called Eight Seconds or Less because most self-protection scenarios last about eight seconds or less. A lot of things can happen in that very short time, and whether we're prepared for that possibility can make all the difference. I am a student of the martial arts, continually seeking to increase my knowledge and expand my understanding of the arts.

Osu, Vlad Rimburg’s new short, features some of the greatest Karate choreography you will ever see.
I highly recommend giving it a watch. I also highly recommend someone giving Rimburg a boatload of cash to make a feature length film.

The intriguing science behind Bruce Lee’s one-inch punch
It’s a punch that has captivated our imagination for decades. From the distance of one-inch, Bruce Lee could break boards, knock opponents off their feet and look totally badass doing it. It’s one of the most famous — and fabled — blows in the world. Days ago, Popular Mechanics set out to solve the mystery behind it – and did.
Drawing upon both physical and neuro power, Lee’s devastating one-inch punch involved substantially more than arm strength. It was achieved through the fluid teamwork of every body part. It was his feet. It was hips and arms. It was even his brain. In several milliseconds, a spark of kinetic energy ignited in Lee’s feet and surged through his core to his limbs before its eventual release.

Scarlett’s stunt trainning for her role as Black Widow in Iron Man2

"Scarlett hadn’t really done an action role.And she assured me that she would work as hard as she needed to both get in sharp and do her stunts and learn all that stuff.She spent hours and hours and hours for months.By far the most dedicated actor when it came to stunt work and the physical work." - Jon Favreau:Director&co-star
