    **The most miraculous power that can verifiably be attributed to "chi" is its ability to be all things to virtually all people, depending on what version of the superstition they are attempting to defend at any given moment.**
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Turned down for Canadian reserves, medical reasons.
    Plan on re-applying within the year.

    Turned down for Army for medical reason. Will reapply if they ever adjust the law (which probably will never happen).

    Just throw rock at it and it will go away.

    I would pick bag work over masturbating, fighting over sex, and KOing someone over having a orgasm!

    Well, I know Asia still active duty Army. I can't believe he's going to be a combatives guy at Benning, what a cush job. Wish I could find something like that in the Air Farce. Oops, I forgot, the Air Farce doesn't do hand-to-hand. Or workout. Damn, guess I'll have to stick to flying.
