ok, just came back from a little trip to a hut in the mountains. nobody told me beforehand that it would be in the mountains, so i didn't have the right shoes.
i found out several things:
- plyometrics for legs didn't help me anything
- BW squats and calf raises helped a bit
- stance training, expecially standing in shiko dachi for prolonged times, saved my ass at least 5 or 6 times in places where i slipped, when i didn't know how to go on, and when i got stuck in places where nobody would've thought i'd ever came out of
how do i knowe it was the stance training? it felt the same and the next day, the same muscles hurt :)
from now on, if anybody doubts the effectiveness of stance training in real life, i'll just laugh in their faces. these days were a real eye opener for me.

I know when I go for a stroll downtown I am confronted by UNEXPECTED MOUNTAINS with HAZARDOUS TERRAIN but at CRUCIAL MOMENTS my STANCE TRAINING SAVES MY ASS!!!
JK man, good for you.

Stance training helps in lots of ways you never see until needed. You need to further train to move with, and within yourr stances. I've used certain stances during basketball games for positioning, rebounding, or just to knock down dirty players (without getting a foul called, due to being just lower body movement). Glad you found out early. Now go practice!

BH - Uh yeah, those other movements were for other things.
Stance training definately gives you the static strength and endurance to......stance.
No go see if your breakfalls work in the mountains.

On a recent Job interview, my prospective employer tied a blindfold around my eyes and then removed his shoes and in stocking feet, attacked from all directions using an eclectic mix of pa-kua and crane stances which I surmised by my highly attuned sense of hearing and chi-sensing skill.
He hired me after I plucked the bamboo cane from his hands using only clenched buttocks.
ever since that day, I answer all criticisms of iron ass qi-bong training with hearty chuckling and a taunting tune from my ass-flute.

Well, when I applied to medical school, the head interviewer demanded that I stand against the wall with my arms above my head as he threw several powerful punches to my abdomen. My Kyokushin training allowed me to prove my mettle and thus, I was accepted.

you ninja fags just got owned in a bad way. this thread should go to the classics and mega thread forum due to the sheer size of taebo_master and gajusceaser's penis. (with which they just smacked across these ninja's faces)

I always get hired at jobs by telling them, in best COMBAT KI scream "Punch me in the throat! JUKO KAI, ************!" They are impressed at my ability to let other people bludgeon me without repercussion, a must in the corporate field.

I get the feeling I am being mocked.
