    I've found that people are far more interested in talking about themselves these days. All one needs to do to keep a conversation going is to continue asking them open ended questions. Guys, this works especially well with the ladies. No, I'm not being sexist, just making an observation. If you really don't want to tell them that your into MA, rest assured, you won't.

    If someone asks me what I do in my free time I will be hard pressed, a funny thing happened to me once: I was in the barber getting my hair cut and doing some small talk when the "what sports do you practice?" turns out my barber is 2nd Degree Shotokan black belt, he even showed me old pictures of the 80's when he practiced until he left it because it became too watered down.

    Now every time I go for a haircut I learn something about the old karate
    Ask Lloyd's students it seemed to work for them.

    In your case, though, I doubt it.

    I should've guessed. Everybody wants to look cool -- its a human condition.

    "How hard can you punch?" -once a young teenager came into class and asked everyone that came in this question.
    "Will I learn how to beat up 10 guys?" -a guy came in to ask about class times. This is the the only question he had besides what time classes were.
    "Can you do a back flip?" -thanks to Jackie Chan movies, kung fu = gymnastics now. Yap.
    "Are you like one of those UFC guys?"
    "Do you think you'll get into UFC?" -These come from people who seem rather genuine in their approach at getting to know me. It's just annoying to hear "UFC" so often. I tell them that I'm not super interested in competition right now, but I may go to a tournament sometime in the future.
    "Don't get into that UFC stuff, you don't need it." -This comes from my dad who just dislikes martial arts.

    I trained with Lloyd "Irvin" Ervin in his early period before he became a MA legend -- when he was teaching a dozen students in the back room of a health club -- but I didn't get no powers, just rug burns on my knees from rolling on the industrial carpeting.

    You didn't hang around long enough, appears to be a brown belt level and above accoutrement.

    "So, could you kill a man with your bare hands?"

    "I've never killed anybody."

    "But you could, if you had to, couldn't you?"

    Along those same lines, "Do you have to register your hands/body as a lethal weapon?"
