    Were you abused by cryptobiotic soil as a child?

    Why is being a victim of any of those crimes an underlying issue? What about the guy who did it to you? How about his issues?

    We all like anal sex. After all, that is what all of their songs are about.

    Ok,Wait a minute, every MA practitioner is a victim of bullying?

    Who hasn't been bullied as a kid? Dealing with bullies is part of just about everybodies experience.

    I bet most martial artists have experienced "ice cream" and "bath time" as well. Maybe we can draw some sweeping assumptions from that.

    I tihnk this guy has suffered childhood trauma but never empowered himself to deal with it. To this day he fears and missundestands those who are empowered.

    There was an old guy who ran around outside a club where I once worked.

    Ran around until 3 AM clawing at himself and yelling something about "Mommy's little crusties."

    Does that count?

    That sort of thing.

    You were disturbed by the saddening spectacle of man at variance with man.

    If you watched the original video (which I have to admit I did not, because the responses were bound to be more interesting) and got angry, you might want to think about that.

    I'm just saying. Don't gong sau me.

    Huh...



    I find off-base, faux-intellectual arguments are best countered by semi-relevant quotes from Captain Kirk.

    I don't care what this guy thinks.

    I train MAs because I enjoy the activity.
    Shut the hell up and train.

    I did it because Shaw Brothers and others studios were awesome.

    Did anyone mention fitness and stress relief?
