I remember watching my first ever UFC match and saying "What the **** are these guys rolling around on the ground for.. Why don't they stand up and actually fight?"
And now I practice BJJ.
I used to believe everybody on bullshido was a real badass. lmao.
I used to think Steven Segal was pretty badass, and was legit
I used to think Michael Dudikoff (American Ninja) was actually a Ninja.
I believed Ninjas were real, and caucasian Ninjas like Mr. Didikoff or Frank Dux were akin to the White Buffalo legends. Something rare and mystical, like a unicorn.
Furthermore, and worst of all, I believed American Ninja was a good film.
Of course, I've grown to find all these things are false.
Except for the unicorn part. Both Frank Dux and Michael Didikoff turned out tohave a lot more in comon with unicorns that they do with Ninjas.
Looking back the too most striking are
That Judo wasn't for me
That you could learn to fight without fighting
