    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Any Martial Art is actually not about fighting. (WHAT BLASPHEMY! HEATHEN!)


    Okay, hear me out:

    It's about teaching and learning the art of how to fight better - within the context of what is defined as the style of fighting to which a person wishes to be better acclimated to. (But, yeah, it's still about fighting.)
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.

    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    Hope this helps.
    If I refer to a spoon and a knife as silverwear, I am technically correct. In a fight, though, would you want to use a spoon or a knife? It is my interest to seperate the spoons, sporks, and forks from the butterknives and breadknives, and the butter and breadknives from the steak-knives and butcher's knives.

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    Not only was he fighting for what he believed in, He fought his own body. He was fighting for dignity. He was fighting to survive. He was fighting to see another day with his daughters and wife.


    Okay Phrost. Define fighting.
