Ninja at the gym
So, I stroll into my local gym, I'm about to hit the lockers and look through the glass partition to the free weights area to see how busy it is.
Low and behold there is this dude in his young 20's sitting on a bench with his hands in one of the meditative positions from Ashida Kim's books. It was palms together, fingers folded, except for the pointers which were extended and hands were pressed against the chest. He was taking said pose in between sets.
He took off before I could make it down there and ask him exactly what he was doing, but I'm sure I'l run into him again.Apu: "Oh! You have just been Apu'd!"

Give him a kick in the ass from me please.
In the most respectful way of course.

Did he have an actual Ashida Kim book? If so, you should refer him to The Punking Of Ashida Kim article on this site.Best Vietnam War music video I've ever seen put together by a vet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDY8raKsdfg

I didn't see an ashida kim book on him, but I remember the pose from when me and my friends were at Barnes and Nobles laughing at the book. Also, something about him totally screamed "I learn karate from a book".Apu: "Oh! You have just been Apu'd!"

Are you sure he couldn't learn it from some valid meditation source?
Meditation itself isn't Bullshido.Regards,

Okay, he might look weird, but that doesn't make him Ashida Kim's disciple. AK got his **** from bastardising other sources anyway.Mr Politically Correct GIJoe6186:

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.

So? I talked to a brown belt (earth belt or something) guy training in his gi.
Nothing wrong with some meditation to psych yourself up. :)Surfing Facebook at work? Spread the good word by adding us on Facebook today! https://www.facebook.com/Bullshido

Could be Tibetan Buddhism, or some other systems. Or, better yet, a ninja. Fuckers are getting hard to find...I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
