Sometimes I get sick and tired of “traditionalist” and MMA fight claim sport martial arts being useless. When it comes to intensity and entertaining, there is no era better than the 80’s and early 90’s era. Take this fight for instance, you have one of chi-town’s great fighters, Harold “Scorpion” Burrage against Raymond McCallum. This was an interesting match up considering the reputation Scorpion has in the sport martial arts world. Both of these fighters put on a show!! This is one of the best examples what the game is missing today!
There is nothing like Old skool martial arts fights! One thing I can say is guys in this era you are watching really brought their A game and truly hit!! Some east coast fighting legends executing dynamic kicks and strikes. gotta love the old skool #homage
I really can’t express my love for old skool competitions. Personally, I feel like the skill and attitudes were so organic opposed to providing an ostentatious commercial feel it has today. These two guys are among some of the best fighters (still are)! Anthony “Mafia” Holloway vs. Jerry “fast feet” fontanez, founder of Reksuits, duke it out! Both fighters have their own sense of style followed allowed with strong basics. These east coast fighters always made a statement. Check out the ref in the middle killing it with that 80s swag!
another old skool fight held at the Compete Nationals circa 1993. The match is Jerry “Fast Feet” Fontanez vs Hakin Alston. Both of these east coast fighters have paid their due in the point fighting game in sport karate world. Very aggressive, but the key in this game is speed (be first)!.
Another old skool open martial arts event. This video is actually almost older than me, but the energy of the fighters were so different opposed to now. Majority of the fighters were warriors.
