Ah, the horse stance. Not useful for fighting. Not useful for paintball.

I've only found that my martial arts training helped me in paintball in two ways. The first being physical conditioning and flexibility (especially playing bunkers) and the second being having multiple attackers. If you have multiple attackers you have to move your position so that attacker 1 is directly in front of attacker 2. This partially limits the effectiveness of attacker 2 as his line of sight is blocked. Best case scenario, he shoots out attacker 1.

Anyone who claims some Tai Chi Paintball Fu is full of crap and has watched too many movies. My opinion.

If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.

What?! You're out of your mind, man. Tai Chi is some deadly stuff. Your problem is you're not doing it *slow* enough.

So I don't want to get all Feng Smith in here, but do you guys ever watch MMA fights where one of the fighters has no head movement whatsoever?

That's what it's like to watch a lot of FPS paintballer vids. No head/upper body movement whatsoever.

When standing, I use roughly the same body movements for slipping/ducking punches for... slipping/ducking paintballs.

Those movements come from the ground up when possible. That's why people don't fight in horse stance, and that's why it is equally bad for paintball.

I know the standard Youtube "snap shooting" paintball tutorial involves something that looks vaguely like horse stance, but it's wrong. This will eventually be corrected when someone who understands fighting and body mechanics gets into the sport. Eventually.

Yes but from more of an ability movement and agility. I'm not small but I move well and it has helped me over come a bad knee over the last year. I think it also help with patients on the field as well. Love the horse stance comment! Feyd..............

I think the same things that translate from martial arts to paintball are the same things that would translate from almost any sport. Physical fitness, agility, stamina and mental discipline are about the only things i see that can translate. Horse stance is good for conditioning your legs but not in a shooting situation real or paintball related, in my opinion. Ninjitsu has some rolls and dives that could possibly be used to evade paintballs and for getting to cover quickly but with a gun and gear on your person it wont be the same as in the dojo. I probably crush my ten round tubes and f up my marker in the process. I would like to see some of those fake(plastic with a ring around the edge= harmless) throwing stars added to games though...would be cool as hell to whip a few shuriken at an unexpecting player instead of risking being discovered in a barrel tag attempt.

Martial arts and yoga both apply to paintball very well.

Strength flexibility and footwork translate into lots of sport/ non sport activities. Paintball is one of them.
