    You too? I train in a few things at this point, but I've been doing Aikijutsu the longest, and a couple of my friends like to do imitations of my stride. I also glide when I walk, shoulders thrown back and without lifting my feet very much. This is made more pronounced by the fact that, previous to when I started training about 5 years ago, I was known for poor posture and bouncing when I walked, so I'm polar opposite now.

    You punch them in the earlobes?

    I should point out for Omega's sake. That im not BJJ, Im just JJ, im a noob, and I only Kimura from Top-Side mount because im shitty from closed guard.

    I merely answered because I have had people try to tell me about their sweet triangles, but couldnt tell me what a rubber guard was.
    I've trained BJJ for an impressive year and I don't really know what rubber guard is. All I know is it involves grabbing your ankle from bottom and seems like it'd be easy to pass. P.S. I have sweet triangles.

    I use it as a reference as it can be a baby steps way of easing someone into using triangles if they have thick legs/ bad knee's. Its how I was taught it.

    Here, let me oblige. I love wearing thongs. I love them because they are so easy to wear on a summers day at the beach, letting the air circulate so nothing down there gets sweaty and smelly, my skin exposed to the radiance of the sun so bacteria can't form, the thick thwack as it slaps back into position as I walk. They're also awesome because they are so easy to take off when its ultra hot and you really want to jump in the water. Yep, love me my thongs. I suppose the only downside is mosquitoes having more places to target, but fortunately I am exceptionally hairy down there so it makes it difficult for them to land.

    I would think most systems would have some trait that gets trained in. I train in Aikido. My partner says I glide when I walk. Almost like even though I'm moving I look like I'm standing still. When we walk the yard, he has a difficult time keeping pace with me despite him being at least six inches taller than me. I attribute this to me, paying special attention to my foot work, cause I wanted to be able to use Aikdo foot work to gain advantage and position for utilizing Kajukembo techniques. What I would do, is practice moving like we do in Aikido while moving around in everyday life. As a result I can cover a lot of space quickly and effortlessly without thinking of my foot work.

    So even something as simple as someone who never stands with his feet parallel to each other, or is constantly changing his position as others around him move about, may be signs. These things get trained in, and probably most don't even notice.
    Its funny you mention this, one time in a class I was taking at my community college a guy came up to me after class and asked me what martial art I did. I had never met or talked to him before, and the friend I had in that class wasn't into martial arts so that never came up in conversation with her.

    After telling him about my background I asked how he knew I did training, and he said he could just tell. I've never been able to tell about a person's training just by looking at them, but that would be pretty sweet to be able to do at some point.

    No. Ha! I just see some big loopy earlobe as a good candidate for a fish hook type maneuver. I would think while training in MMA that type of deformity would end up getting torn somehow as well.

    Tunnels? Tougher than they look, but still totally tearable. Seen a couple of guys, and gals, with torn ears. Nasty stuff.

    Tennis is a sport, so is swimming. Just because someone takes tennis or swim lessons doesn't mean they enter tournaments. Some folks just like to train like a fighter, some are posers, some want to train MMA tactics for self defense, etc.

    Personally, I'm 39 now and I've basically stopped competing after I busted my knee and had surgery for thyroid cancer, but I still train as hard as I ever did. My priorities have changed somewhat as I've aged.

    More and more Muay Thai clubs are adapting a beltsystem, mostly the "De Khan" system (yellow-orange-green-blue-brown-black) or in lesser extent the "Ring Level" certificates (yellow-orange-green-blue-purple-brown-black).

    So, if someone is saying that he holds some rank or belt in Muay Thai, there's a chance that he isn't bullshitting you. Offcourse if he's a fat ****, there's a good chance that he's bullshitting you if he says that he holds the brown or black level belt.
