    Plasma is saying karate sucks? I'm confused. Am I once again missing something? Some thing clever, or a joke?

    I see he does MT. I found MT to train a lot like KK, but a lot less variety so more boring (Master Toddy must like a few techniques endlessly drilled). MT has better clinch techniques, KK better leg sweep takedowns, back kicks and eye pokes, and is a broader martial art. KK was influenced by fighting in Thailand, I do believe.

    I train 'cause I get to wear a neato black gi and throw children around and kick black belts in the face (on my good days).

    Judo...the rich history, art, and street jujitsu, but mostly judo, and I am a beginner, that doesn't get much time, but love the camaraderie, fitness and what I learn, is a lot of fun and that feeling AFTER a session is remarkable.

    Not young anymore, kinda fucked up due to rugby 25 years ago, so everything is 50% or less for me. Fun as hell, love this stuff and hate not being able to go as much as I want due to work schdule.

    Lastly, the r-e-s-p-e-c-t involved in these sports, is unmatched anywhere, IMHO.

    A light in the end of a long work/school day. Something to break the routine that gives you a calm "high" feeling (if you are not injured).
    Self confidence and the relative calmness with it.
    The macho feeling of doing a macho sport.
    The camaraderie from your club, a feeling of belonging.
    Serious fitness and strength, while gaining or at least maintaining a useful skill (unlike running on a treadmill or lifting weights).
    Being good at something that most people can't stand doing, and getting their respect because of it (makes me feel kinda masculine and tough).
    A nice opportunity to transfer your passion and knowledge to noobs that share said passion.
    I'm off the market (getting married soon) but it used to be a great conversation subject with the ladies, they find this "brutal" sport very "manly" and if you sport some muscles too....yeah...good times were had.
    Any ways i think the question should be, why don't you train.

    All your reasons are dumb, the only acceptable answer is "because it's fun to fight in any manner".

    Hopefully, this does not include his dietary habits.

    I as a Wado ryu karate practioner train as a way of getting better also to find a sort of enlightenment in the techniques so that if it came to the real thing i would be prepared fisically and mentally. I also train for the fun i get out of learning new techniques and correcting my techniques for next time.

    why I train

    Remember the 80s? Not the tv show but the actual year? Well there was a huge influx of ninja and martial arts movies and of course I wanted to be a ninja. So after jumping from art to art I just figured eh well I just find one that works for me and unfortunately none really did. I found my love in just "training".

    What does that mean? I love to learn punching and kicking, I love to learn throws and grappling...I love to learn period.

    So if it works, and it's fun, and I can be brutal I am all for it.

    I can't even remember my previous answer, but these days: because I don't want to be a fatty nerd. And if I lack the discipline (and I do) to be a six-pack-athlete looking fatty nerd, then at least I'm a fatty nerd with OK basic condition.

    Plus choking people is fun.
    Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.
