    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    "We have that move in one of our forms"

    I've actually heard these words spoken right before my eyes.

    here are some good ones i remeber.

    (insert system name) is a complete system.

    ground fighting is easly avoided with side stepping and eye slashing with tiger claws. (was actually told this. Then proved them wrong with a taitoshi/RNC combo) (old shoalin instructor.)

    you will most likely never fight anyone who trains on the street. (old Shoalin instructor.)

    Everything you need for fighting is in the form, all you have to do is look. (taichi instructor)

    You dont need to train weapons in your martial arts they dont do any good. (TKD guy who was learning Arnis from me.)

    Guns make all martial training obsolete. (Judo instructor.)

    Last and my favorite.

    You can use a cigar case as an effective weapon on the street. (old shoalin instructor.)

    San Shou/Da is not Chinese Muay Thai.

    "Koga" Ninjitsu - " my Soke learned his d43dly sk!11s from Fujita Seiko in Japan as a child

    TMA striking- " our Kata have hidden grappling techniques"

    taekwondo -" i can kick faster than u can punch"

    aikidoka - " the time it takes for u to attack me is the time it takes for me to kick u in the knee cap an dislocate your arm"

    wing chun- "with the "sticky hands" technique , one can telepathically predict the movements of one's opponent"

    grand celestial do- "our techniques may resemble earth based-martial arts, but only on physical appearance"

    The idea that there are two things called MMA and TMA and that they are at all different.
