    Like TKD?

    All that aside, I like Savate, though when I compete I start to hate the unitards. We have some pre fights where we wear MT shorts and mat shoes, and that's fun. Also, I had one made out of under armour that has loose pants and the tight fitting over shirt, I can wear THAT in competetion... Over the unitards. >.<

    Hush young one. :laughing7 You train Savate and BJJ, so therefore you are doubly :gaygay:

    (Considers going back to BJJ himself, since Judo club cut ne-waza training to almost nothing.)

    your horrible grammar and syntax skills make a small piece of my soul die as i progress through your run-on sentences and wonder if you've ever seen the button to the left of the question mark and the right of the comma that's right in the middle of the two aforementioned buttons were you to use this key perhaps you could better express your thoughts in any language and perhaps others would be less inclined to make fun of you whoops there's the door and all i take away from your post is that a fighting system was developed for gay, drunk sailors who are apparently French and have no idea how to insert a period
