    They were just kids, man. That was mean, dude... :spanky:

    .... can someone please think of the children!!!!

    There is a side of me that finds this totally mean... and there is the other side who finds it pretty amusing :tard:

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Really, a person should not be eaten until they are about 17.

    You remind me of people who have strong opinions on the quality of McDonalds french fries as opposed to Burger King's.
    It's all the same **** really...

I knew of this school, as it was a sponsor of a lane at the local bowling alley. Highsteppers does not make any absurd claims as far as I know, they are what they are, a sport karate club, emphasis on "Creative" forms and after school childcare. There were some kids from the school walking around trying to pass out literature to parents in the play area. They approach me, and I give them a disgusted cough, a little laugh and mutter they should be learning kung fu under my breath.

    My wife totally called me out for this. She could see that I made the kids feel like jackasses, and damn, they are just kids. She didn't want to hear my diatribe on the evils of sport karate, she's the one who got me back into martial arts years ago, so she knows. She just said I was being pigheaded, and I shouldn't have laughed at them for promoting their school.

    It was just kind of funny, I couldn't help but want to run them away from unsuspecting parents held captive at the mall play area. At least the kids had changed out of their gi's.

    I can see both of your points. I used to work in a shop and a little girl of about 7 came in in a karate gi or TKD one, not sure (it was a while back). And as I had nothing else to do I went and talked to her about what she studied and stuff... and the urge to say "Well, hey! Don't you fancy something that really teaches you how to defend yourself...."

    But you don't, do you... you sort of wait till they're old enough to start asking questions or fancying something a bit rougher.

    (please don't dirty that comment...)
