    The point of the kata(forms) is to familiarize the fighter with the techniques of the style, you do the katas and training long enough and it becomes reflexive. This happens with any routine, that's why we have katas in the first place, so if the kata is bad/impractical and doesn't translate into sparring, it's only teaching bad habits and techniques you shouldn't use, ergo, it's gay.

    Who doesn't? I personally prefer more of a tiger/dragon stance, but cat stance is always good too.

    Who says I'm just a Karate guy? I take Karate but the only other classes we have here are Krav Maga and TKD, given Karate kicks ass but I'm familiar with Wing Chun, Judo, and BJJ.

    I kinda know my way around martial arts, just simmer down and take an English class for better grammar and punctuation before you take another Longfist class, dumb ass.

    Not to derail, or interrupt this Karate/Kung-Fu bitchfest, but the spinning sidekick at 0:25 is faster than I thought was physically possible.

    Am I the only one who finds it funny that we're having a kickboxing arguement on a thread about Crappling?
