She does sound kind of hot....
Nope. I just conceal it better.

Never met her, can't comment. But since Phil's post are on his physical limits, I can giggle when I think of his Milton-esque physique and personality.
I can sympathize with her about training hard though, tonight I helped my old Master train two of his best students, a 1st and a 2nd degree. They both collapsed, but got back up when he beat them with a stick. The 1st degree was brought to tears 4-5 times, and both crawled off the mat. I can only imagine the will.

Tough is not how you act, tough is how you train.
If crush grape properly, no can defense!
Uh, just a little warning. I really don't want a thread about my sex life at the moment, so if this turns into a cyber-****-fest, I'll lock it.
But I do thank everyone who's reacted positively to me ranting and bragging. For the record, I'm not tough. I just love fighting, and training.
Kudos on your rant over at E-Budo JKDC. Your emasculation of Phat Phuck Phil through your own accomplishments is outfuckingstanding.
Yeah, that's my fault. I just wanted to bring Red Sonja into this.

Firstly I must say 'respec' for your highly personal, well thought out and emotionally charged post. You got balls JKD, and I don't care who knows it :occasion1
But I have to ask: why in god's name did you keep training on a broken rib?
The reason why I ask is because it links to a realisation that I had quite recently.
Last year I sprained my ankle quite badly. I got it looked after by those who know about such things but I just missed training so much that I came back before I was supposed to. Also I tried to come back in with the same leve of drive and commitment that I'd had when I left. :5dunce:
The result was that I fucked up my ankle again, properly this time. Now 18 months later I'm still struggling with it. I am back in training and I've just passed my latest grading (barely) but things would have been so much better if I had just listened to what my body was telling me the first time around.
In our class we have a motto: if you start to bleed, stop doing what your doing.
The point is that there are two ways of pushing yourself: there is pushing yourself to build yourself up and there is pushing yourself that just breaks you down. At the point where you start bleeding you are not promoting growth you are just dealing damage.
Now naturally there are points where you keep going in spite of blood or pain or whatever (gradings, initiations, special training sessions, actual fights etc). But in those situations you accept that you are dealng damage to your body for a greater cause that has nothing to do with gaining strength.
Now the problem is that most people don't push themselves so an important part of MA is teaching you to break through our sociallr-constructed ideas of what our limits are. But beyond that there is another level. If you keep pushing yourself you will eventually come to a point where you can break yourself just by pushing too hard.
I have done so many squats that I was unable to walk (actually unable to walk) and I had to get some heavy, prescription anti-inflammatories to set me right.
I have done so many push ups that I pulled a muscle in my arm and couldnt do any for months.
It has taken me 3 injuries to learn that there IS a thing is pushing yourself too hard.
I'm not saying that you necessarily push yourself too hard but I am interested to know what you guys think.
Can you traing too hard?
Great post on e-budo! That which does not kil us makes us stronger.
