    Way behind pro wrestling in terms of entertainment.

    They at least have two people and you know they're getting injured. You also don't have to put up with bad music or ear shattering shrieks.

    Not over zealous, but just zealous enough. 病気の粗悪品

    You mean the Bostaff?

    Some of the gangs in his school want him for his Bostaff skills.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    Honestly: I do admire some of the XMA guys for their athletisism and if you just turn the sound off (no annoying screams/music), some of the acrobatic stuff can be fun to watch.

    But why oh why oh why do they have the word "MARTIAL" in it. You are doing gymastics, just face it.

    I should convince some of my old gymnastics friends to do their routines in Gi's. Maybe I could put it on google vids as XMA

    I would like to just give my oppinion on XMA for a moment.

    First i think that it does nothing mut hurt the image of martial arts (not like there already isn't a bad enough image. It brings kids into the martial arts for the absolute wrong reasons (to me the right reasons would be; the need for self defense, the need to feelo better about oneself, the work out that it provides, and so on).

    And the way they fucking kiai, drives me right up the wall.

    And those damn musical forms, where the kid throws the sword up ion the air while spinning. Everytime i see that it makes me want to puke.
