    Looks can be decieving.

    I've seen some guys that look like fat tubs of **** do standing back flips and kick higher than I ever could. Maybe it was a few isolated instances, but those guys could do it.

    Besides I go to the dojo for knowledge on fighting theory and techniques, that requires a brain and the ability to communicate, not a hard body.

    I've seen plenty of great martial artists that were in phenominal shape, who couldn't teach for ****.

    Samo Hung. I don't know about his MA skills, but as an acrobat he's better than I could ever be.

    I'd also like to comment on the sumo bashing ****.

    First of all, japanese pro sumo don't likely need any "real" self-defense on the street, the ability to lift some one that weighs up to 500 lbs and drop them on their head probably will ge tthem by.

    Not only that they are fast and explosive athletes, like NFL offensive linemen. They won't last 60 seconds in a fight, but most people won't last 10 against them. The "slaps and pushes" thrown during sumo are really palm heels and chops and would likely floor anyone here on the forums.

    Finally, for most people I don't think weight is really a matter of choice. Sure you life style plays a big, big part, but I could never put on 300 lbs and become a sumo, just as it is unlikely that someone that has the genetic make-up of a sumo could lose 300 lbs and look like me.

    Self-defense does not require you to run a marathon, only diffuse a situation or take a guy out quick. Any of you ever seen Chris Sayoc in action?? (Sayoc Kali)

    I heard that Sayoc Kali was a bunch of BS.

    <flame suit on, check!>

    Balut utot. Wouldn't want it anyway.

    This is almost as good as the Bakla thread me and Kuya did a ways back.

    Look, I understand you can be chubby or mildly plump (CMA), such as Samo, or someone like Bubba Paris of the 49ers, but Bubba is over 6 ft and can move his weight because he is a trained athlete. How many of the FMA's are trained athletes. Think of this, what if they fall.....no joke, did you ever see a big man get up fast, not plump or chubby, but a really large big big man, it is a serious effort.

    And thank goodness I have never see Chris in action ---- are we suppose to feed into this rather large legend....
    Sell this "epote" to new students.......

    Don't take offense to what I say, I am disfunctional. The Pilsbury Dough Boy attacked me when I was 2 years old and I scare at the sight of anyone who resembles the Dough boy....
