    You wouldn't be on here if deep down you didn't have misgivings.

    Anyways the only thing you can do is try stuff out for yourself.

    Again, as a Karate guy with a grappling mix who has done Aikido and Judo.

    Don't dismiss Judo because you think you already know how to grapple, you don't

    You need to go and try a few Judo classes and do some basic ground work and you will see the truth in this.

    There are many ways to say the truth doesn't have to be rude but I really don't want to discuss etiquette so I will leave it at that.

    On topic (kind of) I didn't dismiss Judo I think it's a good idea and I'll definitely try it, I was just wondering about Karate as I always wanted to learn to punch and kick properly even as an Uke I feel kind of silly launching a Tsuki when I've never been specifically taught how to do it, or a Mae Giri, Yoko, Giri Mawashi Giri, etc.. you get the idea.

    .. Just look at the creases in that man's keikogi sleeves, that's why his chi balls are so powerful.

    He's OBVIOUSLY in touch with the moons of Jupiter.

    What this clearly illustrates is that the Japanese aren't immune to the bullshit.

    For people to believe you don't want to discuss etiquette, you must stop discussing etiquette.

    That wasn't bullshit, that was the most incredible thing I have ever seen.

    It is achieved by dedication

    It is achieved by hard work

    It is achieved by a multi-century cultural background of attempted perfection in every action

    It is achieved by concentrating on the details

    Most of all, It is achieved by standing on the shoulders everyone who dedicated their life to honing those skills before him.

    Anyway, enough about the man's awesome ironing skills. WTF was that mind-bendy, mumbo-jumbo, dancing fakery he was doing while wearing it? He seemed to be teasing a transvestite with meniere's disease.


    When life gives you lemons... BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD!!
