Niko's fighting style.

Recommended Posts

Dotseoem

From the second preview from GR, they stated that he was skilled in Krav Maga.

 

Here's what it look's like(it's kinda loud):

 

 

I don't think it will look this cool, but it's better than the old combat system don't you think?

Here's the Quote from GamesRadar:

 

"... Like so much else in GTA IV, getting into fights is a little more complicated than it used to be; here, each of the controller's face buttons does something different, and we were able to bust out some mean-looking combos, thanks to Niko's mastery of Israeli martial art Krav Maga. His most useful move, however, is his ability to duck attacks (provided your timing on the block button is just right) and deliver a brutal counterattack."

 

So I guess the fighting style IS Krav Maga?

I tell you now. If i can grab a gun from the coppers like that! Then that is the icing on the rather large cake! smile.gif ....(In the words of the the two coppers from the film Superbad) THATS BADASS!

krav maga isn't pretty...but it's goddamn brutal... it's particularly effective if you're facing armed opponents. Some preview said Niko could disarm opponents if timed right and do counterattacks and duck under punches..... so that really sounds A LOT like krav maga. Great.. I hope melee will be more important now

You would. It is all about timing. The person with the gun thinks they have the high ground because they think that it strikes fear into the person they are pointing at. That trust from the person pointing the gun at you is that. HE IS IN CONTROL AND YOU DO WHAT HE SAYS. Still if you have ever done them kind of exercises you will understand to not be through off by such presence. So you quickly strike for the gun. The person with the gun, could just quickly pull the trigger. Still the move is made so you move your body out the wayof the gun while moving forward. I am used to training like this as i practice many martial arts. So i understand what is need for this procedure.

This is the best martial art in the world. A form of fighting for the anti-terrorist age. Amusing, before it was announced I had been thinking of it. Although I wouldn't tag Niko for such a discipline.

After enduring a few slashes, we managed to duck out of Dardan's way, grab his knife and turned it against him.

 

That's from the 2nd gamesradar hands on. so i guess snatching weapons off enemies is in.

 

here's a link to the preivew. is pretty good.

Just an idea this. I have heard that Niko could be more then just a family relation! Like some undercover agent, maybe. That may be a bit far fetched but it does seems strange for Niko to know such a style of martial arts or should i say it seems that way.

 

I would like to see the dojo be brought back into GTA 4, similar to San Andreas but with more of a real feel. That would be a nice little extra. Hope there will be a lot more activities than San Andreas. Still i am sure there will be... icon14.gif

I doubt he's undercover. But, what if he was a mercenary? Not a soldier but a mercenary who fought in various conflicts. Explaining why he knows the Israeli martial art.

A little off topic, but I also think Snake uses this fighting style.

CQC(Close Quarters Combat) = Krav Maga.

But Niko could probably whoup his ^$$. biggrin.gif

I don't think that they're the same. I thought that the CQC stuff was used by SWAT teams confused.gif

Nice. This is much better than the previous GTA games where you would only have to punch your opponent 5 times and he would die.

The best martial art in the world? If this is the best martial art in the world why don't we see more fighters in mixed martial arts like ufc using this style? The number 1 rated heavyweight mma fighter in the world is from russia and his decipline is combat sambo which the russian police, russian special forces, and anti terror use. If krav maga was dominant like combat sambo it would be utilized by more people in mma like other styles.

 

nUMBER 1 RANKED HEAVYWEIGHT mma fighter in the world. Fedor Emelianenko http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fedor_Emelianenko

 

I find it odd that Niko who is from eastern europe and might be russian would not use the russian combat sambo which is native to russia. Instead he uses the krav maga which is used in israel and not eastern europe nor russia which neko might be from.

 

Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sambo_(martial_art)

Combat Sambo (Russian: Áîåâîå Ñàìáî, Boyevoye Sambo). Utilized and developed for the military, combat sambo includes practice with weapons, including disarming techniques. Competition in combat Sambo resembles older forms of judo and modern mixed martial arts, including extensive forms of striking and grappling. The first FIAS World Sambo Championships were held in 2001.

 

Fedor Emelianenko, World Combat Sambo Champion and Russian Combat Sambo Champion. He is widely regarded as the best pound-for-pound mixed martial arts fighter and was the last heavyweight champion of the former PRIDE Fighting Championships.

Aleksander Emelianenko, Fedor's brother, is a two-time Russian national Sambo champion, and two-time world Sambo champion in the absolute divisions.

Andrei Arlovski former UFC heavyweight champion. He was also the Junior World Sambo Champion.

Lance Campbell Sport Sombo World Champion. One of only eight grapplers selected to compete in the Ultimate Submission Showdown.

 

James Chico Hernandez, the First Sambo Champion to be featured on a box of Wheaties Energy Crunch. He is a World Cup Vice-Champion, US National Sambo Champion and British Sambo medallist.

Scott Sonnon, Distinguished Master of Sports in Sambo, was nominated for the American Sambo Association's "Pioneer of American Sambo" award, World Sambo Games Vice-Champion, USA Grand National and Pan-American Sambo Champion, and USA National Sambo Team Coach.[6] Sonnon specializes in no-gi Sambo for mixed martial arts competition.[7]

Oleg Taktarov, UFC 6 Champion, UFC '95 Ultimate Ultimate Tournament finalist, and actor.

Igor Yakimov, World Judo Champion, as well a world Sport Sambo Champion and a medallist at the Combat Sambo world championships.

Sergei Kharitonov, a PRIDE Fighting Championship competitor

Ansar Chalangov, a mixed martial arts competitor who has appeared in two fights in UFC's welterweight division.

Megumi Fujii, a Currently undefeated female MMA fighter. She is known as the 'Princess of Sambo'.

 

SAMBO> KRAV MAGA No contest.....

 

Moti Horenstein-The Hebrew Hammer uses krav maga http://www.geocities.com/kravmagagolem/moti.html

 

Looking like a real life version of Jean Claude Van Damme, Moti has dominated the full contact Martial Arts world for years. This is a brief biography to give you an insight into the baddest man in Jeruselum. Anyone who has ever seen a Shidokan tournament will now its the toughest fighting tourney around. Moti Horenstein constantly kicks ass in Shidokan using Krav Maga techniques.

Do we only judge the worth of a martial art by how it is used in a contest. A contest is not always the best way to judge these things. Because a contest has to have rules and this impedes how the style can be used.

Thanks for the video. The Russian Military or special forces like spetsnaz train in combat sambo. That is why I thought it was odd that Niko uses krav maga when it's for the israelis not russians or eastern europeans. Niko should be using combat sambo if he is from eastern europe or russia. GTA4 will still be a great game! Cant wait for it to come out.
