    Great article. I think the TKD guy's story goes to show you that if you train hard enough in just about anything, you can end up being a flower arranger that can beat the crap out of a heavyweight boxer. I love how he didn't know he could break bricks until he tried; forgive me for mentioning this, but it reminds me of the scene where Mr. Miyagi chops the heads off of three bottles sitting on his truck. Daniel-san asks him, "How'd you do that?" and he goes, "Don't know. First time."

    Hey - really great article Hap03! It lost nothing in translation - was really well written and you made some good points about the sale of MA systems in the West as leisure activities.

    Be careful not to generalise about all Westerners not needing to use their training on a day-to-day basis though. Remember, many people live in low-income/high-crime areas in major cities or face confrontation on a nightly basis as security personnel.

    Meaningful discussion is (mostly) why I visit Bullshido.us! Keep it up!

    Blade: I noticed that nobody reads these articles, and I spent entierly too much time translating this thing for it to go unread.

    RuttenTooten : Thanks for the compliment. The article is actually a lot better written than this. In my translation it comes off a lot more melodramatic than it was supposed to be.

    And I agree with you that the author generalizes quite a bit, but I think he describes the situation pretty accurately. There are exceptions, off course, but the vast majority of martial arts here look exactly the way he described.

    Great article/post. I'll try not to be sad about the Hapkido comments, but overall, actually very inspiring. Thanks, HAPKO3

    The whole hand holding/high jumps thing. Either the author has some bad experiences with the Hapkido schools there, or he is misunderstanding the idea of defensively jumping/rolling over a kote gaeshi or similar wrist or elbow lock technique. Seems kinda dismissive, without much information. Otherwise, I agree with everything.
