    MMA isn't a style. I guess they could have a boxers are stupid month and BJJ and wrestling is gay month.

I may be a punk kid, and you may have been training more years than I have been alive, but I have never been to the hospital for fight related injuries, and have never been knocked out. Given time, I may be forced to visit the hospital or get knocked out as much as you, but until then, I am no match for your greatness.
    I can tell you about aikido sucking. I've watched it for 15 years. Just this last weekend, I had a guy ask to test for san-dan after being away from the dojo for 10 years, and comeing back in february of this year. He has no stamina, and is as weak as a boy. Basically he wanted to test with three weeks notice and training.

    This type of response is innapropiate for bullshido.

    There are better examples of how someone sucks than failing a katas test. That guy is more idiotic than anything else.

    Lifts head over the battlements . . .

    The easiest dan tests are for those who ask to test: they automatically fail.

    One is invited to test based on one's skills.

    . . . ducks back under. . . .

    Cest moi! [He knows no French.--Ed.]

    Anyways, I do not know how it works for Judo or, say, BJJ--perhaps someone can enlighten--but generally your teacher tells you that you should test, and then one goes before a board. To request a test is very unseemly.

    Reality works differently, of course. Nevertheless, when practitioners claim that "rank means nothing!" but then ask for rank. . . .
