    I just saw your "Style field". So have you competed in MMA and if so when. If not, you need to change that.

    Out of curiosity - what exactly is everyone's definition of 'Mixed Martial Arts'. The term MMA is widely used in the name of the sport. Not of any actual fighting 'style'. If anything you could consider an MMA instructor as someone who teaches techniques from various 'styles' that works well within the rule set of the sport. (edit: at least that is my understanding of it; I'm happy to concede if this is wrong)

    As for 'real' fighting I'm going to have to agree with Dale. If it was a real fight and I was under the impression I could get hurt, mamed or killed all bets are off and I'd swing just about anything I could get my hands on. But like anything else someone trained in fighting with an item is usually going to be better with it than someone not trained. A chair is a chair until it's a weapon.

    Then again there are a few technique based close combat styles that use this sort of thing already. Krav Maga for instance.

    Studied, never competed professionally. That was in 2005. Got my ass whipped a lot. Enough to know to leave it to the young guys. Studied Tang Soo Do in 1971.

    ^^^^This.

    @AethistMantis: At 6'2" 290-310, rockin' a beard like that, he's gonna want to be armed, if he's licensed. No one sane/sober is going to have a "fair go" of fisticuffs with a MOUNTAIN.

    For those who are intoxicated, he is likely to bounce them off every vertical surface in the vicinity, at will.

    @Dale, I think I have a session this coming Tues, but I will make one. We're one week out from finishing pre-production on the album, and I've already stared at a monitor in post, for enough hours to whack my back, and drain my spirit.

    Looks like I can't post PMs anymore. I want to thank O.S. for sharing my confidential medical history with all registered on Bullshido. Very unprofessional on your part and you should know better. What I told you was in strict confidence, hence the PM. The rest of you, enjoy yourselves and have a blast. This is beginning to remind me of a reality show.

    Well, you did mention cerebral hemorrhage and a stroke in your posts, doesn't seem like it was much of a secret. You talked about it without being prompted to do so, too. Seems like you've also had two hip replacements. Was that something you wanted to remain confidential, too?

    Doof, it looks like he thinks you are a closeted homosexual and that Rurik Greenwulf is your wife, and for some reason this has incensed him and is leading him to threaten to destroy Rurik's headgear.

    At least I'm pretty sure that's what he was saying. . . . Let's call it 60/40 that he meant exactly that. There might be a language barrier -- "both hand," throwing a knee "over and over" -- so I can't be positive.
