Some not so well-known observation humor of MA.
Here are some things that i notice about MA and MAists that really crack me the **** up.
Every Judo club has at least ONE moderately buff Christian boy who is a nice kid, but not really popular and doesn't get laid. He's usually very energetic, and an overachiever.
9 out of 10 Maists are as pale as skim milk...the other 1% are compiled of Asians, people who are actually tan, and other naturally dark completed people.
Many Maists, particularly TKDists and Karateka, use a very wide-legged walk that almost looks like they **** their pants and don't want anyone to know.
Maists with the grossest feet ALWAYS show up to class wearing flipflops or sandals.
If the instructor accidentily farts...he will act like nothing has happened....and expects you to do the same.
Standing there clutching your belt is a sign of authority. Many instructors do this.
If you meet another martial artist, both of you are automatically obligated to tell stories of your awesomeness, whether they be true or not. "I was sparring this guy one time, and i kicked him and he went down...the paramedics came and checked him out and said that his heart had skipped like, 6 beats."
All practicioners of arts with high kicks wear straight leg jeans....its a fact of life. That's just in case they have to "Kick a Bitch".
Chi-artists are constantly testing their chi in every day life. Attempting to move a pencil across the table, chi-striking a door open when no one is looking, trying to generate heat in their palms, etc.. etc...
All Ninjers have thrown on their tabi to make a run to the store at least once...there's no denying it. Even though it takes twice as long to fasten those fuckers as it does to tie your shoes.
That is all for now...will post more when i have time.
Dude, I'm so gonna piggyback on this one, just let me take care of these three tickets (actual work for once) and I swear I'll have some gems. Unless you beat me to them.
Observational humor rules, btw, awesome start!
YMAS forum description. Read it, love it.
4 out of 5 karate schools have a kids' curriculum that has an extremely stupid name like "little dragons," or "ninja kids"
National Geographic Factoid: TKD is a close relative of Tennis. You might even say it's in the same genus. Notice, if you will, the sounds the TKD female in the wild makes whilst sparring, and then look at the sounds the female tennis player makes. Two sides of the same coin, I say.
Multiple TMA'ists will begin conversations with "My skills could own 37 knife wielding attackers while simultaeneously reaching a new high score on my playstation naruto game" but will soon turn into a circle jerk where everybody agrees that all arts are equal and useful in their own right.
Every TKD school has the upstanding and narcissistic korean-american black belt teen who absolutely SWEARS by TKD. There is an 80% probability that his girlfriend (also Korean-american) is also a black belt at the same school. There is a 100% probability that he is a virgin.
EDIT: some of these are well known, but whatever.

Just drop the arms at the sides...holding onto the belt looks arrogant as hell.

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
