    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    I saw it and thought of Bullshido...

    While killing time on Youtube, I came across this clip and though it'd be a sentiment enjoyed here.

    In the mental game that is combat, conceptions of training are key, hence the premium placed on realistic expectations of martial prowess (backed up by supporting evidence provided by non-compliant resistance).

    Thoughts or flames anyone?

    What do you mean by:
    "the mental game that is combat"
    "conceptions of training"
    ?

    Well mainly I was just providing some commentary for the link...but I was just kind of making the point that the mind set of any competitor is important. I'm sure we all know of people that train who have no interest in pitting themselves against someone else outside of a friendly competitive atmosphere (training, tournaments, throwdowns, etc.)...and others who absolutely relish the thought and opportunity.

    How you got that from that clip is beyond me. It was idiotic grandstanding on both sides that we see in tv and movies. I think it all boils down to whatever you train in, don't become delusional about what your skill set is outside of the paradigm you train in.

    I completely agree.

    Granted it's TV. I was just struck by the absolute distinction between boxing and fighting in Gibbs' mind, further expressed by the 'dancing around' manner in which the 'boxing' was portrayed. Now donít mistake me, Iím not commenting on boxing, simply that in the end it's all up to the individual.

    gotta say im not usually in a "friendly atmosphere" with people i fight in competition. i would rather pit myself against them because beating some idiot in the street doest prove ****, id rather beat someone with skill. makes it more gratifying.

    not that any of this is releveant... since the clip is of a fuckin TV SHOW (a crap one at that)

    You've been talking to my mom, haven't you? Well that was years ago, when I was a teenager. Now I scream "Tap, Fucker, TAP!!!!!
    Oh yeah, and I loved how those guys were moving around the ring in the beginning of that video. It looked like one of the guys was trying to keep a big **** from falling out of his ass.
