Everyone should know CPR/First-Aid. Seriously.
"All this talk about 'newbies' is making me a little nervous. You guys don't have any sort of secret hazing initiation involving wooden paddles and me screaming 'Thank you sir, may I have another?!' do you?"

CPR only works like 4% of the time(better than nothing, but it might not be better than faking it).... First aid is a useful skill though.

"With your grappling training in Tai Chi, would you feel comfortable rolling with someone trained in GJJ/BJJ for the same period of time?"
yes, but i'm aware i'll get "tapped"
See the difference is that you specialize in that one area, groundfighting. But Tai Chi considers several ranges and NOT ONLY groundfighting. I understand you enjoy it so good for you.
"There is? Then why did Shooter have to develop his own system?"
doesn't he do Tai Chi Chuan whatever the hell the difference is......
"I know I'm exaggerating, Tai Chi can be a good and valuable experience, but it is not by the longest shot a primary matial art. What I mean is Tai Chi can probably help your game is you are practicing something else, but it will not teach you to fight as of itself.
I know a few Tai Chi practitioners, and every single one of them will tell you to look elsewhere if you want to learn how to kick ass."
it ISN'T my primary MA....
"and WTF is the University of Guelph? That place makes UC Davis sound like an ivy league..."
point? i've never heard of your little campASS or dues'.

Please don't take taichi at a college. I've been doing taichi for several years now and I can tell you that 90+% of taichi sifus in america have no clue about what they're doing. I bet that percentage jumps to 99.9% for on-campus instructors. ;&gt;
I'd favour the jujutsu personally. What style is it?

If you think you can speak about Tao, it is clear you don't know what you're talking about.

Hop Scotch, that will suit you just fine...

Kind of off topic, but are any of you anywhere near Sioux Narrows Ontario?
I will be up there in a month for a week.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I've tried defending myself with CPR many times, but every time I start blowing air into my attackers lungs, I end up totally getting my ass kicked.
My kung fu is better than your kung fu! Ha! I know Ling Tiger style!

Mr. Thithy- You need to blow the air from your ass instead.
"I'd favour the jujutsu personally. What style is it?"
no idea, that's the style i'll probably take though, i'll see if i can call and find out...
"Hop Scotch, that will suit you just fine..."
the scotch before the hop?
"Kind of off topic, but are any of you anywhere near Sioux Narrows Ontario?"
never heard of it, come to Toronto instead and we will pluck Crimson Tiger together
