    How does he address theories that some kids start learning martial arts because Jackie Chan is goddamn awesome?

    Well ****, if only I had known to take up martial arts. I doubt it would have been much use against the bullies I had. When I did start MA it was out of boredom. Although I can see the point on MA attracting a certain set of people.

    I did get bullied in my last year at school, but unfortunately for this blokes theory I took up martial arts way before then, and the reason I started Judo as a kid (though stopped after a year back then) was because my mates were also doing it, simple as that. And I did Kung Fu as a teenager as I wanted to do flying kicks like Bruce Lee, for fucks sake!

    I got bullied quite a bit as a youngster (I could usually get mad enough to fight back, but still...). Did that help eventually get me into martial arts? Maybe...who cares? I do know that I got into Kyokushin after I nearly got into a fight at a local bar with a guy who was intimidating, and I felt that my aiki background at the time had not prepared me for a violent situation. (this site had a lot to do with my choice)

    I'm much harder to intimidate now, and as a result of that, I don't really get screwed with. The improved physique and conditioning makes me much more laid back and peaceful and improves my life in nearly every way.

    This guy can get screwed.

    Tattoos can only mean a horrific, bruised and bloody childhood.

    Probably ran with gangs too.

    My childhood wasn't sufficiently aggressive. I'm making up for it now.

    7 minute youtube diatribes are actually a great way to identify broken people, but not in the way he thinks.

    His theories must apply across all martial arts as well.

    Tai Chi, for example, could only be explained by it's practitioners continuing to act out the cycle of abuse they experienced as kids.

    Slow, meditativetive, realxing abuse...
