Not every MAs type is a bloodthirsty dolt. There is real karate and real karate-ka out there. We're rare but we're there, and yes we can fight if we HAVE to.

    Anyway you must be joking with this gay-assed throwdown crap, right? WTF does it prove? From most of the clips I've seen, notadamnthinggeniuses!!!
    Give me a fucking break. Matsumura was an aristocratic dillitente whose studies were a direct function of not being required to do any real work. The fact that you idolize the flowery language of an Edo-period brat and his boys' club indicates a grave misunderstanding of the context he's speaking in: that of a man with no real military experience and no confirmed experience even fighting without clear handicaps and restructions*; and of a man who was essentially the caretaker of an irrelevant tributary noble, forced to advocate the methods and values of foreign conquerers.**

    You're not the heir of a special, balanced martial tradition that encompasses bunbu ichi. You're a kata dancer extolling Neo Confucian virtues that were impressed into your art's values by military and economic conquest.

    * Matsumura's martial arts experience would have been hampered by Chinese traditions. Closed door Pan Shou fighting is much less realistic than any throwdown, and if he had fought a platform bout it would have been well known, since that was the point of such bouts.

    ** I find it hilarious that Matsumura studied the Jigen-ryu but that Hohan Soken wouldn't even speak the language.

    You have got to be fuckng kidding me; you're a powerlifting monster spinal surgeon whose technique is so fearsome you could not realistically step on a mat without killing everyone there, but if you manage to hurt your hands on our faces well then you'll just be real mad then.

    Get over yourself.

    I think it's pretty hilariously convenient that Shorinji's ideals suddenly kicked in, preventing him from coming to a throwdown. It's a shame cuz we could've all gained something from the presence of a near invinceable, bushi surgeon...

    So, Shorinji, what technique would you use if Stilgar tried to thrust at your liver with his krisknife?
