    I don't disagree about education as a mission. I just lumped it in with training. But, I can see it as apart as well. Is bullshido any more of an educational source than some other sites, sadly I think that is debatable. The martial arts world has evolved and whatever Bullshido does offer, I don't this is unique any longer.

    1. If I were drinking milk it would be shooting out my nose.

    2. Beyond just style bias there is also a definite sense of entitlement fostered in people to be abrasive asses even to people who are far more experienced.

    And, the only one going off into a tizzy is YOU. I'm cool as a cucumber. You somehow feel that you're entitled to something by being here, you're not. I don't have any stake in this place. I did once well before you joined. As for this site, you were born yesterday. I don't have any history with you, soooo whatever.
    You're right, you had no history with me, yet you chose to engage my post that had **** all to do with you, wasn't addressed to you and when I tried to give an example that didn't pander to your attempt at trolling, you still had at it. You are a pathetic weasel of a man and have proven this time and time again, I've watched you engage with several posters over the years and you always struck me as a wanker, one who at school would instigate and then call for the teacher. You've even done it here, sucking up to jnp.

    I like the Teflon student thing, though. Kevlar underneath it all. I like that you spent the time to research me.

    God, you're childish....

    Have you stopped to consider that I've been conversing off and on with people here for ten years? JNP is no stranger to me.

    Or do you feel so entitled that no one can comment on your post? Who do you think you are , really?

    It is actually amusing that you saw my explanation of my meaning as vitriolic, even more interesting that you thought it was directed toward you. It was not, you took it that way. Your next post was where the vitriol started.

    While that maybe true, the mirror image indicates that a person who thinks they automatically deserve respect merely because of their more extensive experience is guilty of the same sense of entitlement.

    I've said this to myself on numerous occasions.

    Forgive me for saying, and perhaps they do it differently in Texas, but generally when I'm merely hugging someone it is not from a position where I have to be mindful not to snap their limbs like a twig. I think you're selling yourself a little short.

    I don't know that I necessarily agree with the first half of your position here. Before this site I had never heard of (let alone come to appreciate) Sanda/Sanshou and there exists respect for many skills outside the MMA skillset (e.g. FMA). Whilst MMA does get alot of attention here, IMO it is due to its suitability as a testing ground rather than being a pinnacle of styles (if you accept that it is one). I do agree that you are a positive influence here.
