I like you.
That is difficult to say because I loathe people with low post counts as a general rule.
But your first paragraph about how instructors 'know' what works is dead on. In fact I probably would have to write several paragraphs to say what you did in one.
The last paragraph also struck me. I have mentioned before how many people are absorbing MMA, Vale Tudo, and BJJ techniques - drills - skills - etc and passing them off in thier own style. What is worse is that they usually do a bit of revisionist history stating that they have 'always done this'. Which is bullshit. We went over this on the Speakman Kenpo thread in the video where it starts off in bold titles "THIS IS WHAT WE DO"...which was crap. It should have read: "This Is What We Do Now...after the post-UFC explosion that revealled our gaping holes and piss poor training methods" because we all know just 10 years ago they were playing slap tag with foam gear and calling points for ridgehands and backfists to the top of the head.
I'll be watching you carefully.

Once I get out of the academy in NC, I'm going to look around at some of the MMA gyms around there. Supposedly there's a lot right there in the NC area.SON OF ODIN

You missed the joke koto: take a closer look at your quote:
"...I still get together with some of my old classmates and work out with them once in a while in our own little training group so we can bang, toss, and slam each other..."

This is why Bujinkan guys don't train alive...Mr Politically Correct GIJoe6186:
Fat people disgust me in every way imaginable. I was at Freindly's with my girl tonight and saw a bunch of fat fuckers. I felt sorry for the pavement they were killing and the people who had to see them. .

"Toss" doesn't mean the same thing to Americans, FYI. Here it's a pretty benign word.

Didn't anyone ever tell him a fat man could never be a ninja
You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.

This is why Aussies find Roots clothing so amusing, and find Roots Kids to be downright hilarious in a sick, twisted way. :icon_twis
