15 Times Joe Rogan Showed His Mastery Of Martial Arts


Joe Rogan Training With Coach Mark DellaGrotte

Even though he has no intention of competing, Rogan still shows a desire to learn and improve his striking, training with a number of respected MMA coaches including Mark DellaGrotte who’s previously worked with the likes of Kenny Florian, Frank Mir, Stephan Bonnar, Marcus Davis, Jorge Rivera and Patrick Côté .

”Savage shit today training wit @joerogan!” DellaGrotte exclaimed on Twitter after training with Rogan. “Ain’t gon lie, this man kicks hahda than anyone I Eva held pads for!”

For the record, Rogan has said in the past that the hardest kicks he’s ever seen were delivered by former UFC heavyweight Pedro Rizzo.

    OK – All that Joe Bogan is really doing here is “pushing” his foot into the bag, and not actually kicking it – THERE’S A HUGE DIFFERENCE!! Yes, it “looks” impressive, but more often than not, it’s the kicks and punches that DON’T actually look that great – are the ones that REALLY matter – the ones that make all the difference! Do NOT forget – first and foremost – Bogan is a wanker, secondly he’s and actor (and a crappy one at that) – so THIS is where he has learned his impressive all showy for the camera style of “kicks”. Take a good, close look at Bruce Lee’s kicks and punches, and you will see a MAJOR MAJOR difference – you will see very short but EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE styling of the utmost efficiency, but one thing you will never, ever see with a real martial artist like Bruce – (besides in his movies, of course!) is show off style and extended (time wise) kicks!! NO – he will ALWAYS retract extremely quickly, or you WILL get taken out if you just keep your extremities out there hanging all out for the whole entire world to see.
    Thirdly, Bogan is a comedian….OK, scrap that – forget I EVER even mentioned that one!!!

      Do you have more credentials over Rogan? Comparing kicks Bruce Lee never used in a real fight vs techniques kickboxers and TDK dudes use in tournaments and saying they’re just flashing and all show is complete and utter bullshit. You either watch too many Bruce Lee movies and don’t watch enough K1/Muay Thai or you just never trained before and think you know more than you really do.

        For ONE thing – within ALL of my martial arts training in which I have ever participated in, yes I did my fair share of sweating bullets, blood & massive buckets of Adrenalin – and then some!!

        BUT – I will tell you this – I never, and I repeat – I NEVER NEVER EVER had a secretive fetish to have the downright raw animalistic craving to be on the floor on the top of (or underneath!!, yuck!) of another totally strange, man sweating his totally salty, steroidal waterlogged slodgy sweat – all over every square inch of my half naked body!!! NEVER!!! Disgusting! I just don’t roll that way (if you “know” what I mean!)

        I mean, if Ho’ Bogan “rolls like that” – then – who am I to judge?!! He just might be totally into “that sorta thing” – But as for me – I don’t EVER feel the need to have to feel other sausages and smell other men’s crotches to feel as if I’m a top-level martial artist.

        That all come to be popular all because of the clever marketing tactics, but it has almost nothing to do with being the best of the best, on ANY level.

        The only thing I do commend is that their individual bodies are in tip top muscularity and are ideal bodies for fighting…but it all comes down to sponsor-ships, money, diet, exercise and did I mention – money?

        All of that along with a shit tonne of TIME – and a great coach, and a boat load of “performance enhancers” – and you got yourself the perfect recipe for an ideal body! But then they throw it all down the drain, cause what do they all do with it all??

        They jump on top of other men, rolling around on the floor (as I used to do as a 7 yr old kid with my little brother!!) – If ONLY they actually got themselves into a REAL martial art – but – each to their own…some just may crave another humans contact from – another male!

        Who am I to judge?
