    Personally if I knew his claims and then saw him at the TD id at least think if not say: who the **** do you think you're bullshitting here pal?
    No, not really.

    See, I don't have any relevant stand-up experience so I witheld any judgement. During this thread's shitstorming I did ask Rafe about it and he said pretty much the same thing he posted here, which wasn't too surprising.

    What you have to understand is I have no investment in his skills, and I still refrain from judging a person completely based on what they talk about on an Internet forum since I've met in him person too. I simply don't take Internet too seriously so him getting caught up in his lies about his MA past here simply isn't that big of a deal for me. I'm giving him the benefit of a doubt as long as he doesn't keep on doing the same mistakes over and over again.

    From the forumite's perspective It's good that he came out clean. I'd be even nicer if he posted a flame-free truth about his real training history so you can establish a baseline if he will keep posting here (can't remember if he included that in his post). If he keeps coming back to the forums he will no doubt get all kinds of **** from people here and he has put himself into a position where it's really hard to redeem yourself. It's interesting to see how things will play out.

    Yeah, you know, guess I owe you something better.

    I decide to leave, because I don't think it makes sense to talk any further: My situation won't get any better, aynway. But yours won't, either.

    In hindsight, I could have spared you three pages of lingering embarassment, if I just had let Lebell go his way when he came to assess your personality, and just had said, yeah, spot on, he is an arrogant child, instead of writing a PM essentially asking him to let go of the topic.

    But you hate that patronizing, don't you? Because for a boy of your self-entitlement, the thought of not appearing absolutely sovereign, and in control of that house in your head that you have made of your life, is unbearable.


    That's why you do things like that:



    Calling me out on a post that would gotten lost in the noise, anyway. Post 2046 of this thread.

    Because you were not just happy with the situation, bad for me as it already was. I had questioned your views on things, and, NO, somebody questioning YOU, that cannot be.

    So, let's try to counterbalance, let's try how much fun you can have with me, and how much you can step up on my back, until you tire of your game.

    And that's why I won't bother with you any more; you will not change through this anyway, you will just get more self-righteous and locked in your castle in the clouds. And since this has been so rewarding for you so far, you will behave exactly like this in the future.

    But be warned: I was an easy target, because until I met Zendo shortly before the TD, I had never quite decided if I wanted to speak as myself on BS, or to play a character. The next people that question your self-concept, online or offline, will not be as easy to beat down.


    Now, you are surely hurt by my comments. How do you think I should feel? At the end of the day, I treated you like a friend would, and you reward me with attitude. But go on, talk it away. You need to save face on the internet, remember?

    And for that, the well-meaning nerd who tried to give you a friendly big-brother-talk, who, despite of his neck pain, and despite of having to catch a plane the next morning, stayed up with you all night so you wouldn't have to spend hours alone at the train station, can be morphed into Quagmire, or Red John, or Rudy Abel, or, really, whoever, as long as it serves your purpose. - Did you really think you could go on with this without some sort of response?

    I am not even angry with you. Grow up. And be in peace.



    And now the good thing: This will eventually happen. And then, even though you and I might never get along again, you will think differently about a lot of that ****.
    You know why I like the name "Hiro Protagonist"? Because Hiro meets Raven. Read up what happens. - And with that, indeed, enough.

    And NOW I am out.
    Bullshit.

    I love how people either:
    A) Don't really care or judge, but post exactly like they do both.
    B) Claim this isn't really how they are off the internet.

    I call Bullshit on both. Your mannerisms, attitude and thinking bleed through into your writing. The degree may not be as bad, but it is you.

    I would make some things clear:

    1) The rules of the TS/Hiro 2011 fight:
    – MMA with UFC rules
    – No elbows to the face (there weren't enough elbow protectors available)
    – Only kicking the legs of a lying down opponent (both were grappling noobs, so I suspected that they didn't know Technical Stand-Up and getting kicked in the ribs when you are on your knees and hands just sucks)
    – No leglocks (again because they were grappling noobs)
    – Intensity level: inschool/interschool smoker
    – The only scenario where I said that they should go light with their boxing was in a ground-and-point from full mount. If one of them got in that position, he should “tap” the head of his opponent constantly while I start counting to 60. If after 60 the person below hadn't broken free from underneath the mount, I would declare the other person as the winner (again because they both were grappling noobs: breaking free from being full mounted is already difficult without somebody raining an amplitude of blows to your head).
    – There was a designated zone on the mats for the fights, but I had said that this wasn't really carved in stone. It was just to prevent that someone would get slammed into the wall, which is less forgiving than the side of a cage. On one side the wall was about 1 meter from the designated fight area. Hiro fell on the border/just outside the border of said area, but they were still at a safe distance from the wall and I was standing between them and that wall, so I let the fight continue.
    – If they came to close to a dangerous area (the wall or the mirrors), I would stop the match, put them in the middle of the fight area in their last position and restart the match. A practise that also gets done in BJJ competitions.
    – If I would see that the intensity level of one of them would increase to the level that it was obvious in his intention to do intensional harm to his opponent, I would stop the match, order a 60 seconds cooldown and restart the match with both opponents in a standing position. Each opponent got the right to 1 cooldown warning, second warning would be a DQ.
    Maybe not the best rules outthere, but I had to deal with two overenthousiastic noobs and there are conditions in renting out that place. If the supervisor saw someone with a bloody smashed face or if I had to call an ambulance, it would be the end of the EuroMegas.

    2) I have never forbidden to someone to come to an EuroMega and I won't start doing it in the future unless someone wants to come to deliberate hurt someone else. I know for those occasion a good parkingspace in front of the Federal Police/Gendarmerie station.

    3) I've never forbidden that anyone takes pictures or tape the event, I just didn't want to get filmed myself. Yet I was thinking about dropping that rule at the EuroMega 5.

    4) Hiro is still welcome at the EuroMega 5, but I want him to apologize in person to TS for making public on a forum, information that was given at the dinner and drinks afterwards.

I had devoted a very large portion of my training to learning to catch TKD style kicks, sweep, retain the leg on the ground, and finish with heel hook. Did I say a word about the rule change, or how I didn't like it, or how I felt about not getting a ring as we were promised? Not once. If you're committed to making a fight happen, you make it happen.
    Holy **** no one told me heel hooks weren't cool. I had an entire bailout leg diving heel hook plan in case you turned out to have a guard game when it hit the ground. Also, I was completely astonished by the wavemaster ring when I arrived. I had no advance warning of that silliness either.

    Okay, follow-up from last big post. I said: "but I'll post my version of our match, sparring etc tomorrow. You know, the actually relevant stuff."
    But frankly I'm getting tired of nitpicking all this. The gist is written all over the last pages. So I'll just correct Rafe's errors.

    At what exactly? Don't answer. Your lack of serious attitude DURING THE MATCH irked me even then. Not a good idea to laugh when someone (who's more serious about it) is kicking you.


    Quote Originally Posted by Hiro Protagonist View Post

    (Before anybody makes an angry rebuttal, where was I kneeling before the start of the fight? Why did I do that, and what was spoken on the mat before that? I think that part of the conversation might even be on tape.)


    So, yeah, I expected Zendo to stop the fight as soon as we got out of that clinch, and to reposition us on the other side of the the mat field(?). This is why I turn my hip, by the way. I was confused. Also, Zendo had advised us before the fight to go super-soft, so that's why I tapped after the first hard hit.
    Entering Rudy territory. Look, you agreed to a set of rules and that's that. If fighting on a certain part of a mat was that important, you could've asked for a reset anytime. Frankly, it wouldn't have mattered.

First, when he visited me in Spain, and then, when it was apparent that I was sick on the day of the TD.
    Ah yes, I remember how you tried to tell Zendo to 'award' me a TD fist just for showing up. Seemed kinda pointless to me.

    Yes, you told us you had the stomach flu. Well you could've backed out and it would've been just fine. Your ego didn't let you. You're an adult, you made a decision. Don't use it as an excuse afterwards.

And guess what, 2011's TS got the message.
    Bitch please. You didn't say ****. That whole sparring session was a travesty. I had conflicting emotions about it. Should I let up like you're asking me or should I hit harder just like you?

    Surprisingly, sparring with Pointy went without a hitch. A breath of fresh air that was.

    this bitch **** is why the rules of a match and the entire match should pretty much always be taped.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Here's what I don't get. Muay Thai has clinching. Grappling in it's BJJ and Judo variety has it's share of cuddling. A large number of posters practice at least one of the above arts. So with all the man hugging followed up by copious amounts of drink-sau that tends to be the norm to the end of a proper throwdown, why the **** do we still have so many crabby assholes posting on this interwebz?

    I had my ass handed to me at every fucking throwdown, and I still love every fucking one of you douchbag assholes. Now shut the **** up, and give the person next to you a hug. Plan your next throwdowns or something.

    You're wrong. NOBODY has the authority to ban anyone from a TD. Nobody.The owner of the facility housing a TD might have persons banned from the premisses who could not be able to attend, but NO BULLY has the power you imagine Rene to have. Where the heck did this belief in a TD-Czar come from? We have (literally) NOTHING like this in the US.

    It's those socialist europeans. They need someone telling them what to do because they understand that regular people aren't competent to make those decisions for themselves. I assume Rafe was wearing the fanciest cravat or something when they first met up, which made him the default Bullshido Throwdown Minister of Attendance. I assume there's a fully formed bureaucracy managing the euro TDs behind the scenes somewhere. Probably have to fill out forms in triplicate to attend.
