Anyone on Reddit see this Nickbow dude?
He was brought to my attention by a couple of friends from the gym, they weren't sure if he is trolling, or deluded, or for real.
A few gems:
One person says he has started training after two and a half years-
Or when told of a person who broke his neck doing BJJ-
Be sure to take it easy. Drill drill drill! Little to no sparring will be best for now
...which ties in with his assertion on an even earlier thread that BJJ free rolls too much and that the only way to get really good at something is to drill the technique.
This is awful and it breaks my heart to hear this. Dozens of kids die each year in Japanese high schools from Judo as well. Yet another reason why competition and sparring is counter-productive to martial arts, how can you defend yourself while you are injured or worse from training?
His bullshit amuses me-
Bold is mine.
"As a professor"....
Shut the **** up idiot. I have a doctorate and I would never be so arrogent as to say "as a professor".
Claims he is a 6th degree BBT black belt. That I might believe, the bullshido is strong with this one. Also claims he trains BJJ and condescendingly refers to anything below black:
Some of his stuff seems to be legit, but then again, you are bound to find an undigested corn kernel in **** every so often-
Seriously guys, this is white belt bullshit. The only rank up that deserves its own post is receipt of a black belt. White belts shouldn't wear coloured dougis by the way... disrespectful (as an Asian you should be aware of that even more)
Oh yeah, he quotes the **** out of Hatsumi, too.
I personally don't enjoy any kind of exercise where I am not improving a skill. I want to improve my BJJ strength? Do BJJ. Get stronger and learn while you are at it. I imagine you are frustrated by your lack of technique and think getting stronger is the way to go. Sorry but "Strength of heart is equal to the a shadow of a lion, while strength of body is only equal to one's own shadow" -Soke Masaaki Hatsumi
He's apparently a ladies man-
A true drinker of the Koolaid-
I was falsely accused of rape on more than one occasion, but only once did it ever go to the police. Luckily, I secretly recorded her giving me an enthusiastic blowjob and swallowing it all happily the morning after. She denied doing such but when the video was shown she broke down and admitted faking the charge cause I never called her back.
So I do admit I was a bit at fault for being a jerk to her, but still, men are by far more often the victims due to the lying nature and vindictiveness of women.
But he seems to actually take some advice when it comes to BJJ instructionals.
Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu.
No other martial art has such a rich historical background combined with REAL, deadly and easy to master yet hard to learn techniques. In addition you learn all the weapons that the real ninja used alongside spy and stealth techniques. It's saved my life and those around me numerous times from "tough guy" mma fighters types and guidos (one in the same oftentimes).
I'm not coming to any conclusions, except that I think dude is a fucking douchebag. I'm just wondering if this guy is on our radar, if he posts here, or even if he just lurks here. If not, then I think it might be time he came and let us all know what he thinks in relation to martial arts and other topics.
I am not on reddit, so if any of you are, let him know I'm laughing at him and his posts. Reading. I meant reading his posts.
