    It would've been, until I remembered that there was no footage to back up this story.

    They've gotten to that phase in the relationship where they think something's wrong if they aren't being beaten.

    Because individual > club > style. I already know that lots of WC schools suck. I doesn't mean that mine does. Besides, I've seen Judoka and kickboxers who sucked too.

    The individual > school > system rule has been utterly corrupted by people trying to avoid admiting that their system just sucks through and through.

    Somebody who trains hard in Wing Chun with resistance and high-contact full sparring, takes care of their conditioning and has a degree of natural atheleticism completely pwns fat american teenager who's just spent hundreds of dollars on a designer rashguard and trains in grappling a few hours per week.

    Heh, it's your prejudice. I've been around grappling places here, and you don't really see fat american teenagers, but rather lean tatooed badasses. All the fat american teenagers do ninjutsu.

    But I agree with your point. There may be WC schools that rock. But they are very, very, very, VERY, VERY rare, to the point that I haven't seen one and I've been seriously looking.

    The guy probably weighs about what I do if not a bit more but he doesn't have as much muscle mass. However, he does out weight and out power gimpface.
    I think he is still in the stage of thinking a lot of things in his system that suck, don't. For example he was talking about how hip movement isn't nessecary for striking. Eventually, I hope we get two sets of MMA gloves so that he can kind of see that in terms of what is going to work effectivness wise, shitty boxing is better than WC in a lot of cases.
    In fact, at one point during gimpface messing with the guy, he just stood there and let the guy hit him for several exchanges. When I asked him what the hell he was doing he said "I am just trying to get use to getting hit, and these don't really hurt."
    And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.
