Self Teaching - Hijikata Toshizo
It is well known that motherfuckers often frown upon the practice of self teaching, calling it useless and futile. They have often likened it to attempting to use masturbation to improve your sexual prowess. As one who masturbates a lot, I hope they are wrong on both counts.
While I was reading some bullshit because I was procrastinating and whatnot, I came across something I had missed in the story of Hijikata Toshizo. For those of you who have no interest in Japanese History, Samurai, bullshit with swords, or who aren't anime fanboys or whatever (osu desu, ************), Hijikata Toshizo was a bad ************. Vice Captain of the Shinsengumi and legendary swordsman. And he was self taught, if my sources are to be believed.
I have previously started a thread about my battles with non-training, borderline alcoholism and pornography. This is the motherfucking cure. I am going to teach myself Sanda. I have already downloaded multiple videos of fights from youtube to help guide me on this motherfucking journey. This **** is going to be epic.
I am also going to tie an old tire to the roof of the other room in my apartment/house and kick the **** out of it. I will be practising throws on broomsticks. No, I am not fucking kidding.
Motherfuckers may talk **** until I show up unannounced at your next throwdown and proceed to kick the **** out of everybody. Because that is what the **** I does.
Also, are any motherfuckers around here who happen to be self taught?Originally Posted by Goju - joe

I'm self taught. I've watched pretty much every fight scene in movies so I'm pretty sure I could take you. ************.

I'm glad you are getting motivation from a historical figure. Napolean and Nelson are my favorites, especially Nelson. Be assertive, take risks, and fight even though you lost an arm lol. " "I am killed. Remember me to my wife." I hope you kick every-ones ass, and give hope to all the expert village tutorial watchers :P
*sarcasm aside with Sambo Steve's tutorials, which are bad ass.*

All my cossack dancing Skillz are self taught. Though I think I'm doing something wrong, since my calves always hurt like a ************ after doing squat kicks. I should probably get proper instruction.
Can anyone recommend a cossack dancing dojo in the Seattle area?The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

Go for it dude! Despite you being a ************ bad mouthed Son of a bitch you have my respect here. Go train and get better
I do Kyokushin but I learn how to fight in da streetz with Bas Rutten Lethal Street DVD's I also have his MMA dvd's that teach you striking, Takedowns and locks.
I learned how to do a Rear Naked Choke and a guillotine choke from Bas Rutten videos and the headpunching I block the way Bas Rutten teaches rather than most KK practicioners do (dropping the hand is the KK way, I push with the elbow and I dont drop the hand)
And I have a Video Seminar from Fedor Emilianenko I tried to learn some basic Judo and BJJ from Videos but then got bored and I decided to wait to have real classes of that in the future.
