Cristiano Ronaldo is one of the best players in the world, due to his great speed, power and force. One of his greatest strengths is the free kick throw and his huge variety of feints and fakes that allows him to be so destabilizing, he is one of the few players that with his plays and his brilliant tricks can turn the tide of a game. Over the years he has perfected his natural abilities and this has allowed him to play in two of the best football clubs in the world like Manchester United and Real Madrid. For many people he´s the best football player in the world, for its spectacular feints and fakes, too many people believe that the 94 million euros that Real Madrid paid to be able to sign him claims that he is the best of the world. Moreover many criticize him for his individualism and his vanity.

FACE TO FACE

F

or several years people around the world has been looking for an answer to a question that has arisen and the question is who is the best player in the world, Messi or Cristiano?, To date, no one knows for sure due to the diversity of ideas from people. For about six years, the football world has seen do great things, extraordinary and unreal to two of the best players in the world and perhaps in history. No doubt they're both number one and number two in the world, but although Lionel Messi is officially the winner of the Golden Ball season (2011-2012) and last named the best player in the world, many people do not seem to be agree, there are many differences between them and it is almost impossible to compare them, because quite simply they are completely different. For example: Cristiano Ronaldo is a fantastic player, with great ambition at the time of entering the field, loves to win each and every one of the parties that the dispute is a player with plenty of power, speed and great quality, but one of its greatest weaknesses and to affect his game is that he is very arrogant and loves to be the center of attention, why weakness?, well because we must remember that the official name of Soccer is Soccer Association, this means that is a team sport, is played as a team and not a one man sport like boxing or tennis, for this reason it has led to some criticism he has received in his career. Lionel Messi, contrary to C.Ronaldo is a player praised by the vast majority of people and sports reporters. He has a huge charisma and maintains a very good relationship with the media, he´s a very agile player, intelligent and with a lot of incredible skills. We must make it clear that both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are true magicians with the ball and is very difficult to say who is the best player in the world. Both have unique features that the other does not have. Some will say that Cristiano is the best other than Messi and others will say perhaps that is Kaka, Xavi, Iniesta or another player, that's a matter of taste, this leads me to conclude that it is simply impossible to answer with certainty and encourages me to invite you, yes you, my reader to do the test and ask yourself, who’s better?, Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo? Do you have the answer?

Victoria Azarenka vs Li Na: Australian Open final – as it happened

Victoria Azarenka retained her Australian Open title and the world No1 ranking after beating Li Na 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 in the final. So after defending her title with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory over the sixth-seeded Li in one of the most unusual finals, Azarenka dropped her racket and cried tears. "It isn't easy, that's for sure, but I knew what I had to do," the 23-year-old Belarusian said. "I had to stay calm. I had to stay positive. I just had to deal with the things that came onto me.� Li had been sitting in her chair during the break, while Azarenka jogged and swung her racket around before leaving the court to rub some liniment into her legs to keep warm. The 30-year-old Chinese player had fall to the court after twisting her left ankle and had it taped after falling in the fifth game of the second set. Immediately after the fireworks ceased, and with smoke still in the air, she twisted the ankle again, fell and hit the back of her head on the hard court.

Chivas Guadalajara vs Club America: Chivas Guadalajara endured an absolutely disastrous edition of the Super Clasico on Sunday night, losing three players to injury and getting another sent off in a loss to Club América. Signs that Chivas would endure a tough evening surfaced very early on. Jorge Enrique was forced out of the match with an injury in the 13th minute, and was replaced by Fernando Gonzalez, a teenager who has appeared in just 39 minutes worth of Liga MX action this season. They lost their captain nine minutes later, as Hector Reynoso, who came into the game with a nagging injury, was unable to continue and came off for Victor Perales. Shortly after the halftime break, América found their opening goal, which turned out to be the winner. Raul Jimenez was the scorer, getting his head onto the end of a cross by Juan Carlos Medina after a short corner routine. Less than two minutes later, Marco Fabian went down and had to exit the game, becoming the third Chivas player to be substituted due to an injury. Sunday night's edition of Mexico's Super Clasico won't be looked back upon too fondly. Chivas Guadalajara had a terrible night, picking up three injuries and a red card in a 2-0 loss to Club América.

How to get over a street fight The aim of this article is to help you solve a street fight by using simple actions to help you survive, attack or escape basic combat situations. Remember that fighting should be your last resort after all else has failed. ALWAYS try to avoid a confrontation. The best way to win a fight is avoiding it. If you can resolve the problem without struggling, do it. Don’t let your ego interfere with your own security. Keep a bold attitude but calm enough to stay sharp. Know your surroundings. Besides being able to easily spot potential improvised weapons that you might use, you can also search for a fleeing route. Always use all your senses to their full capacity. Don’t just look around, observe and use the shadows and reflections to your favor. Do not be over-confident. Doesn’t matter the situation you should always proceed with caution taking in mind that you don’t know if your opponent have more experience in fighting than you, if he is armed with weapons such as knives, or accompanied by more people. Always be prepared to strike, lots of times the best defense is a good offense. Keep out of reach, breathe, and cool your mind. The more relaxed you are the easiest is going to be to connect a hit and the less you will hurt yourself. Read your opponent movement flow. If you keep chasing for an opportunity to strike you will only get yourself hurt. Opportunities only present by themselves, wait for them. Know when and where to run.    

If you are at a disadvantage or simply do not want to fight, you can run into people, into a well-lit place, trying to stop your attacker approaches. Block it with obstacles. If you knock over a trash can or whatever, you will help prevent your enemy reach you. Spreading between cars and other obstacles makes sure to have an outlet to prevent your opponent trapping you. If there are several opponents and you know that you can’t escape them, you better not try it, because it'll only make yourself tired and you will have less energy to defend yourself. It is better to face them off. Written by: Andres Melendrez Article

Watch your balance. Open your legs to the level of your shoulders a fold your knees a little. Avoid hitting ground at all cost. If your opponents surpass you in number NEVER wrestle in the floor. Learning a martial art can be a good idea and also is very useful if you are caught in a corner. Choose any martial art that shows you street fight techniques. But keep in mind that you will never be 100% safe even if you have studied martial arts and gained a black belt. In a street fight you could be seriously hurt and you might even lose your life.

TOP 5: Most lethal martial arts Written by: Andres Melendrez article Mostly developed as a self-defense tool enforcing mental strength, martial arts are mainly developed for self-defense, some of them for survival at all cost, making them unusually deadly. Although most of them originated in Asia, they’re hugely popular in the occidental culture as well, mainly martial arts funded by the military and security corps. Here at (Name of the magazine) we have our top “5 most lethal martial arts list”: Kalaripayattu If you thought that Hinduisms only meditated, worked in their good karma and body through Yoga, think once more… Kalaripayattu is the most antique registered martial art. The training begins since the student is seven years old and requires a physical, spiritual and mental training teached by a gurukkal (guide). This martial art characterizes by its big arsenal of lethal weapons and unusual forms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ml0lvDwBkr0 Sambo If you want to train as the Red Army troops did, Sambo is for you. Sambo is a Russian grappling martial art and one of the deadliest in the world, in the eighties it applied as a demonstration sport for the Olympic Games in Moscow, but it was never recognized officially as a demonstration sport due to its brutal nature. In this sport, instead of differentiating levels expertise by belts, is more common to use titles ranging from Novichok (Novato) to Uchitel (Distinguished Grand Master). https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=fBjin8zNUWc

Muay Thai This is one of the toughest striking martial arts I've seen so far, its tradition and history has made of this discipline famous in the West, and is one of the favorite subjects for MMA athletes. It was made popular by Hollywood actors like JeanClaude Van Damme. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=lGUdUkVhU-I Krav Maga Used by Israeli Special Forces, the army and in the past by the Mossad. It was developed by Imi Lichtenfeld, and after the migration of Jews to Israel he began training them in this art. After World War II, the Jews needed a combat art to represent them as warriors to the world, here the result: a sophisticated urban survival combat system. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=C3xayIEKGf0 Ninjitsu At some point we all dreamed about of being ninjas. This martial art has records dating back to the 1500s but espionage was practiced in Japan since the 500's or even earlier, hence the origins of Ninjitsu, one of the more lethal and effective martial arts in the world. The use of weapons as an extension of the human body is one of the secrets of this discipline. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=VVJ5dO13Fh8

Martial Art of the Month: Pencak Silat The Pencak Silat describes the martial art from the Malay world, especially in Indonesia and Malaysia. Pencak silat means "fight" or "fighting in self-defense." There were many wars between various indigenous tribes and kingdoms of the Malay islands, and expert silat fighters were highly respected. These masters often attained high political and social positions. It is assumed that the Pencak Silat has developed from observation and imitation of the movements of various animals such as the monkey, the white eagle or tiger, but its origin is difficult to track because of the loss of written records. It is widely believed that the discipline was introduced by religious hermits that travelled to India and lived in this region in ancient times. Therefore, the Pencak Silat adopted a philosophical and almost mystical reputation, thanks to the influence of these religious teachers. The Pencak Silat developed rapidly during the twentieth century and became a competitive sport in some countries. It is highly valued by the Malay community as a cultural bastion, a martial art that is also a way of life, a sport, a tradition and a means of moral and spiritual education. Pencak Silat Training The Pencak Silat is a complex system, pretty “wild�, has a wide range of offensive and defensive moves, and is based on a variety of arm punches, kicks, grabs, and throws, footwork, and weapons techniques. Silat techniques focus on fluency and precision of movement, being the surprise factor a key element to ensure effectiveness in the fight. Weapons such as the knife, the long and short stick and sword, are used for training. Pencak silat practitioners work in four main aspects of art: the mental and spiritual aspect, the aspect of self-defense, cultural and artistic instruction, and athletic aspect.

How to choose a martial art There are many martial arts out there for people to learn nowadays. Most martial arts are no longer under regional restriction, and due to the great efforts in globalization the options someone has are almost limitless. So, how do I know which martial art is better for me to learn and practice? Well, there are some points to take in mind, which can reduce the possibilities: Set up a budget. In some disciplines you will need special equipment. For example, in Kendo you will need to invest at least $1000 for the practice armor, in contrast to Karate in which you only need a white cotton uniform. Choose a martial art that you enjoy, but also one you can afford. Determine your objective. Health and good shape, Martial abilities, Being part of a traditional culture of hundreds of years, or gaining trophies in competitions – although I wouldn’t recommend this last objective for someone to start-, is up to you. Decide a style you are comfortable with. You can choose a tough style like Muay Thai or Occidental Boxing styles, one semi-tough like Tae Kwon Do or Hapkido or maybe a softest one like Aikido or Kung Fu variation. Maybe you may like a grappling martial art like Jiu Jitsu or any Occidential submission type. Take in mind your own physical limitations. If you are too old or not very flexible, try to enter a martial art less hardcore. Maybe you may like some grappling styles like Judo, Aikido or Jiu-Jitsu. Consider the effectiveness of the martial art. If you choose a police or military martial art like Krav Maga, ARMA or AES, you will notice that this one focus more in the “martial” part of martial arts, leaving aside the “arts”. But not because of that oriental martial arts should be underestimated, since they make the “arts” a way of life. Written by: Andres Melendrez Article

UEFA Champions League 2012/2013

This season we’ll be enjoying a great time plus we’ll be sitting on our couches with our friends for hours. UEFA Champions League 12/13 is the 58th edition of this competition and it’s one of the oldest and greatest competitions in football; it will have his final on May 25 2013 and it will be held on London in the magical Wembley Stadium , right now they’re on quarter finals which means only 8 teams are remaining and the current champion Chelsea FC it’s completely out of the picture, here are the remaining teams: FC Barcelona, FC Bayern Munich, Juventus, Malaga CF, Borussia Dortmund, Galatasaray, Paris SaintGermain and Real Madrid CF. Until now the competition is very closed and it’s very difficult to say who can be the winner, with Barcelona and PSG with a controversial equalizer and Bayern Munich defeating Juventus with a 2-0 and still left with two great matches Real Madrid vs. Galatasaray and Malaga vs. Borussia Dortmund it’s very difficult to even say who will play at the final match. For now we can only say, whichever is the final match of the competition it would be one of the greatest matches of these year. Written by: Armando Galindo Article
