"+rep: I never know what he's talking about."
yeah, me neither. I hated to turn the thread drift into the friggin Titanic, but when a-holes try to take it the "personal" route, I have little compassion. Too bad it crushed the thread, but hey! if the OP had actually wanted his question answered, maybe he should have posted over in the Traditional Styles Forums, some hard training FMA-ers & Silat practitioners could have given their pov. Oh well, half the guys that posted don't even train, they just like talking **** however well e-informed (their Google-fu is strong), and the rest train but don't know ANYTHING about Silat so their opinion is worth exactly nothing.
We'll keep on truckin' tho. Thanks for the mssg. - ^_^
