    Hey DCM, what is your name? One of the guys I train with got his black belt from Leninger a few monthes ago.
    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.

    Must have been pretty advanced then, since most kids are still learning to walk around and you were kicking and punching :P

    Trained about 6 months at a McDojo in karate. Left the school due to the fact I wasn't learning anything.

    Picked up martial arts again, though full time. I have been training in Karate for over 1 year now, and am still am straining in it. Though now I'm working on a lot a groundfighting out of the dojo due to the fact, the groundfighting done in my karate school is very limited compared to BJJ only schools.

    Started judo when I was nine. Did it until I was twelve. Left, because everyone told me all that wrestling type stuff was crap. Started wado-ryu karate when I was thirteen because I wanted to do all that cool beating people up type stuff. At fourteen I started drinking and partying, and I lost my interest in martial arts at fifteen. When I was twenty I tried out some shotokan for three months, and I realized why I'd quit martial arts in the first place. Aat twenty-two I started feeling guilty about being slightly overweight, so I took up southern Shaolin. Did that for about a year, moved to Paris, tried som MA there, thought they all sucked. Discovered Bullshido.net and realized that the doubts I'd had about my Shaolin school were well founded. Moved back from Paris, discovered a BJJ-school, and that's where I still train. I've never been happier with martial arts.

    I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    Some crappy Shotokan when i was younger (bout 2 years of it). Started WC just over a year ago (my sifu trained under Kevin Chan, has worked on the door, and ran nightclubs for most of his life...which is kinda how i met him when he ran a pub near me), had to stop briefly but resumed again about 8 months ago. Am trying to get to an Escrima school near me, have been looking at BJJ also but the only school nearby trains at the same times as my WC class which i would never give up as it suits me perfectly, especially the no holds barred attitude we have when training (the sessions of comparing bruises before/after lessons are always fun).
