    Me: Amatuer MMA from time to time.
    Friend: He can kick your ass!
    Me:...*face palm*
    Strange man: What would you do if I do *THIS!* (sometimes they deliberatly touch you and do something rude - rare occassion)
    Me:Alright lemme show you a cool BJJ move!
    Strange man: Jiu Jitsu? I just wan't to know how to knock some one out

    Attractive Lady: So what do you do for a living?

    Law, Mark The Pyjama Game: A Journey into Judo

    As the judoka progresses, he will learn to handle extreme physical exertion and suffering, but there is one thing that will push his endurance to its very limits. This occurs in social encounters with friends from the during a lull in the conversation, suddenly flatten their palms and do some weird movements while asking, ĎAre you still doing the old . . . karate?
    One of my favourite bits of the Pyjama Game it always comes to mind when one of my supposedly close friend can't remember the four letter which make up the sport which has physically and mental tortured me for the previous week while they have been posting picture of their cat on facebook

    "You do Tai Chi? How does it make you feel?"

    *horrible approximation of cloud hands or something*

    "Pain and frustration mainly"

    I just tell people I do "Kung Fu" now.

    "This is my friend. He does martial arts. He's a ninja/he can beat you/20 guys up." this is pretty dangerous. If someone suggests this, it probably means they just want you around so they can start ****.
    Good god, I hate this one. One of my friends insists on telling people how "dangerous" I am. I can pick my own fights, thanks.

    The nice thing about muay thai is that you typically only get two types of responses. The first, and by far the most common, is people who have no idea what it is, the "What, mai tai, isn't that a drink?" crowd. The much smaller group is people already familiar with combat sports who actually know what I'm talking about.
