By your post, I can surmise that you're not a high ranking martial artist, if any at all, as I'm sure they have the restraint to not engage in a chat room debate with a noob over a topic that your pals have already concluded is a trolling discussion.
Just because samurai used it doesnt mean it was exclusive to them. Damn, open a fucking book. They have a similar stance in many other fighting styles that arent japanese, and it has a variety of uses, such as takedowns. And it also trains you to have stability and leg strength. Open a book. I know plenty of people that got high grades on the SATs, and that means nothing. Hell, I even got a high score! **** this thread, I'm getting depressed with the idiocy.

Style: submission grappling
I realize that this is ludicrous necro-postage, but does anyone view this thread a little differently now that everyone knows that JFS is all kinds of suck?
