    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Does soccer qualify as an MA now?

    Gif in case FIFA made youtube remove this version too:




    Ref should've given red for that one.



    Also, FLASH KICK!!:





    ^The dutch player needed some dental work the day after.


    If it works on grass, does it work on da streetz? :)

    And of course the classic:





    On a slightly more serious note; Do you guys practice a sport like soccer, american football etc. and does it help you in your MA in any way? Or vice versa?

    I practice lifting heavy ****, and it helps me lift heavy people.

    Does that count?

    I think that all these images might be proof that football/soccer is not really a sport after all.

    Before I had my final check-up after my calfbone was healed (freak BJJ accident), I was sitting in the waiting room of the hospital.
    The only other people that were there was a 16 year old kid and his mother. The kid had his shoulder taped in.

    The mother began to talk why I was there, etc...than when it was my turn I asked her what her son had. He had broken his shoulder bone and the shoulder plate, but the mother reassured me that it wasn't his first broken bones.
    He had already broken his other shoulderbone and plate, one calfbone, one shinbone, his arms, some fingers, some toes and a few ribs.
    I asked which Martial Art he practised and the mother said "Oh no! He plays soccer".
    So than came the time for my check-up, before I went with the doctor, I gave the kid the advice to drop soccer and start Kickboxing, because he would have less broken bones with Kickboxing.

    Can be a nasty fucking game football, especially amateur leagues.

    There's something about the slyness of the violence in soccer that annoys me, it's primarily perpetrated by dickheads who get off on blindsiding people.

    Most of my injuries have come from soccer, Gaelic Football and/or drinking rather than martial arts

    Its why I've given up.

    Soccer and Gaelic Football

    Maybe if the players would fight more there wouldn't be so much fighting in the stands. One can only hope that the virtues of hockey will spread worldwide.

    They flop like a touch karateka with a bloody nose.
