    That's sad considering you wrote that illogical mess. It has less to do with humor and explains why you misunderstood the original thread.

    I will loose when you tell me sport muay thai teaches killing teachniques. Until then, there is no way I can loose... And street fighting is nothing close to battle field fighting. Not by a long shot.
    How many people have you killed and how many battlefields have you fought on?

    I understood. He is differentiating between learning and actually doing this. I view things differently. Those techniques have already been successfully "practiced" by someone else and I am learning that successful technique. If it is a proven technique, it is good enough for me. The question is have you learned the technique correctly and have you practiced it enough times to be second nature and have you learned in which situation to apply each technique.

    No. I'm laughing at what you wrote not, what you and doug's conversation entails. I'm laughing at that sentence and how illogical it sounds.

    None, how many have you? You are trying to imply how would I know if I never done it. I can say how would you know it doesn't work if you didn't either? Why not ask the Thai soldiers who learned LertRit, a form of Muay Boran, and see how they did in WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam/Laos, etc... specifically the one who had occasion for hand to hand combat. If Muay Boran is junk, we need to notify the Thai Military to ditch LertRit.

    I still don't get it why you think it is humorous. These fighting techniques are developed over time from fights and wars. When soldiers return home, they would have picked up new skills. That is common sense right? Its experience. So when I say perhaps they learned it in the battle field before it became a technique, that is what I meant. Perhaps I should have elaborated more?

    I haven't killed anybody. I don't claim the techniques I practice are for killing people. However, I can claim that my techniques are good for taking people down to the ground and controlling them. I KNOW these techniques work because I've actually done them.

    You, on the other hand, don't actually know if your "lethal" techniques work. You think you do, but you've never actually performed them for real, nor have you seen anybody else kill anybody with them. All you have to go by is some notion that they were used on battlefields centuries ago, which you can't actually know for sure. Your attitude towards your techniques' effectiveness is based purely on faith, rather than experience.

    Could it be that people practiced it in the battle field first before it was taught as a technique?
    Considering all the talk of the deadly that read completely and utterly ridiculous.
    It was attempted, used, worked, was effective......etc.

    Practice in the middle of the battlefield sounded funny.

    Please, don't go to the dictionary.

    Got it. A difference in opinion. Like I mentioned above, you haven't seen these techniques kill anyone either so you can't prove they don't work. See what I mean? Or can you prove they don't work without seeing it? If I took a sledge hammer to the back of someone's neck while laying down, would it kill him? How do you know? Have you seen it?
