    according to this guy splits are a function body positioning, shape of your hips and tendon/ligament and not flexibility

    That's the opposite of what he's saying.

    Try loperamide or diphenoxylate and atropine.

    Oh, you said the splits.

    He says he's not in it to be a fighter, let him be. He realizes that his 360 spin kick falling into a split continuing to a forward roll then reversing to a kip up does not make him "t43 d3adly"
    He's also saying he's a martial artist without doing anything martial. That's total BS.

    XMA people call it martial arts because they're afraid of calling it gymnastics. :gay: :gaygay:

    They got NOTHING on gymnastics, either. Ever hear of parallel bars, uneven bars, rings, or pummel horse? There is more to it than just the floor.

    Wait for it. XMA is going to have a 'wire' category soon, and eventually other apparatii (apparatuses?) will follow.

    And then, the waterfall of crap that is the XMA will have achieved it's goal of perverting the MA to the maximum extent possible.

    He's got the terms mixed up, but at least he knows what he wants and isn't gonna try to backflip over his opponents
