    Despite what you say it's pretty obvious that the "lag hack" is being used on more than just one account, including mine. I wonder how many times is the story going to have to be revised until this is finally acknowledged, and/or if you're even being told the whole truth.

    Two possibilites here:

    1. You are being kept in the dark by the Turd Reich because der Furryher doesn't trust you.

    2. You know the full truth and are simply lying because your status as a moderator is more important than your integrity or commitment to fighting BS in the Martial Arts.

    Either way, I wag my finger at you sir.
    I'd also like to point out that no one ever addressed your post about adding a "No Bashing Bullshido" clause to the TOS, since our dual members are not allowed to criticize MAP.

    I respect Bernius, KSWolf, wrydolphin, and the other MAP members who have come over here and communicated openly and honestly. But the above thing about us not being allowed to criticize you while you are free to take potshots at us (I'm using "you" in the plural sense, as in all of MAP) is pretty sad, in my opinion. I've not registered there, but I've lurked, and a lot of MAP's membership tends to be unfair to Bullshido. If they can unfairly disparage Bullshido on MAP, why can't we disparage MAP on MAP, or even disparage MAP on Bullshido. Not that I plan on registering anytime soon, or even pretend to give a **** about this entire discussion, but it seemed worth pointing out.

    On a side note, you guys (general MAP membership, not just mods) should probably get your **** together. Saying things like "There is no ban hack" when you really mean "I've not been informed of a ban hack" makes you guys look like Communist Bloc Soviets. My favorite so far is "I'm sure it's just a technical issue." Right after mods repeatedly admitted to the existence of a ban hack.

    Actually, I want to know how completely insecure you have to be in order to ban people who say mean things about you on other sites. I mean, seriously, that's like some pimply 14 year old LiveJournal bullshit and definitely not something done by an organization that wants any kind of respect.

    Could you imagine if the Wall Street Journal cancelled your subscription because you wrote a letter to the New York Times editor to complain about a recent column in it?

    Actually, I'm about to go out to bars, but I don't like the people that were hosting the pre-party, and I want to make it to BJJ tomorrow, so I stayed in until everyone was ready to go out (Bars close at 4 here. TAKE THAT BIBLE BELT!)

    To answer your question (sorry about not responding to your PM, I am kind of a space cadet about doing so lately), I'm not planning on using my Blog for beer, because I think I'm going to use it to talk about my Army Combatives training, as well as any non-BJJ martial arts training I can get when I'm at AIT and beyond.

    That way, I can keep my BJJ log pure and delicious.

    Same here. How do people like this handle criticism in the real world?

    Hold on a fucking minute. Are you telling me you're going to use your training blog to talk about training?

    Warped.

    You need to see someone about your priorities.

    I suggest a bartender.

    Dude, you have a nice thread going there!!! Kudos!
    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

    This is a little off topic, and I apologise in advance for it, but I don't know how to PM someone when they are offline.

    Nice thread, even though I have only trained in my style of Kenpo for 2 years I can agree with all the points you put forward. In my Kenpo class we try to incorporate all the things you mentioned to make it practical in application rather than the old argument "It works in theory, but I can't show you because I could break something" crap.

    I live in Australia so Jeff Speakmans American Style Kenpo Karate (long name) is very new to us over here but from the first time I saw it I knew it was for me. Here is my teachers website (Mr David Giovenco) http://www.jeffspeakman.com.au/, and also a little sparring highlight clip of the exact style we practice over in America here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FevFq0-SRdA and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ct3UrNPxwc for your scrutiny. I had the luck of meeting Mr Speakman and Mr Pribble in Aus near the end of last year, I might not have alot of experience as of yet but I can tell when someone can hit hard, fast and realistically and both do a fine job at that.

    Cheers,

    Panda

    P.S. Any alternative way to view this video, it seems to be down as mentioned before.
