    Amen to that.

    So, that's two, then, eh?

    I could still use some input regarding what sort of criteria we could measure, though.

    Depending on the length of your video, I'll check it out and see what your exercises are.

    I do breathing exercises every day. It has not made my armbar better. If you can show me a way to breath that makes my armbar better then I will do your techniques. But you must show me a breathing/meditation technique that makes my armbar better.

    Reminds me of a "fundie" old lady I delt with once. I was bringing a bunch of toys to a children’s shelter. Mind you I was GIVING them to the shelter. The old lady there had to inspect them to make sure they were acceptable toys.

    She set aside a group of plastic dinosaurs and said "No dinosaurs."

    I said "What's wrong with dinosaurs?"

    She said "They never existed."

    I said "??? never existed? What do you mean?"

    She said "It doesn't mention them in the bible."

    I said "What about all the fossil bones?"

    She said "God put them there to test our faith.":tongue4:
    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!

    Could you handle 15-20 minutes, or should we start with 5 and work our way up?

    I can't believe that this isn't the stuff of humour alone. It just pisses me off to think there are people whose brains operate in this way.

    That's a tough one, lol. I can see where it is easily translatable into a stronger gaurd, and I can see how it COULD make an armbar stronger, but it's an odd sort of connection, so you probably wouldn't merit it, lol.

    I'm designing a routine with MMA specifically in mind.

    i'll do your exercise and measure my heart rate. But, by holding some stance, surely you are n't trying to improve your cardio. so, you'll need to tell us what is supposed to be the benefit of the exercise.

    MMA routine? PLEASE PLEASE STOP! you don't know what the **** mma is, you -by your own admission- have at most tapsparring experience. you have no grappling experience. just stop, this **** is delusional. stick to what you know. or go and learn from people that know.

    I'd assume he means exercises that could benefit a mixed martial artist, as opposed to exercises to help you get better at kata or the ability to pull draw your testicles up into your body to counter the dreaded groin kick.
