    Gene Lebell's Favorite Sayings

    Do pay attention to the one about "master of styles..."
    "Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." -- Hericletus, circa 500 BC

    I particularly like 'If you're not cheating, you're not trying hard enough'

    Facebook sucks

    Here we go

    Winners never quit, and quitters never win.

    If you're not cheating, you are not trying hard enough.

    Disqualifications don't count.

    If the ref doesn't see it, it didn't happen.

    It's not cheating if the ref doesn't see it.

    Nice belt, now get in the ring.

    You've mastered how many arts? Wow, that is great, now get on the mat.

    You're a Grand Master -- Well damn, that is new to me, and I've been to two World Fairs and an all-night gas station!

    He's a fine actor and a fine martial artist.

    When in doubt, choke them out.

    Always fight your opponent with what he doesn't know.

    You've got a nice neck for choking.

    You've got a great face for radio.

    I'm going to burn your house down. Gimme some matches.

    Facebook is blocked here, so thanks for posting.

    I love that one above. It reminds me of a 5th Dan saying to the students "The Belt only holds up your trousers. The rest is up to you". He then proceeded to beat me up (with Control) in front of them all. Ha Ha.

    he never picked me again ever after.
    ironically he proved his own point even better.

    you know, it may sound a bit morbid but i've really thought: what if Gene dies?
    I don't know of anyone even remotely as cool and clever as Gene, he has that specific attitude and it will be a huge loss to the ma-world. (if there is sucha thing)

    he should really write down his thoughts and ideas about ma's, but this time without a lt less of his 'persona'.

    i've seen a lot of interviews with him and i get the impression it's his way of 'hiding'/defensive mechanism, either that or he simply just doesnt give a **** since no-one will ever be remotely as cool as he is so he just takes the piss nonstop.

    i do think i get his points but it would be even more interesting to REALLY read about what made him tick, and how he really feels about certain things.
    He's a very interesting original guy in the category of ' they dont make any of those anymore'.
