    May I ask how old you are?
    10 bucks says he's between 17-21. Old enough to try and make a point based on personal views but young enough to be naive enough to buy into his morals preaching instructors BS as well as a lack of insight and knowledge of the topics he has opinions on.

    BTW I'm 22....I have therefore passed that unfortunately time of my life, and have now gained access to all the knowledge of the universe.

    Yeah, but I'm 19 and I'm not that stupid. I was thinking 16 actually Kempo, but there are dumbasses in all ages. Can't wait 'till I'm 22 and get to know everything ever.

    While boxers have to work at religious idiocy, it seems that chunners manifest this state quite naturally.

    I second Lu Tze - correlation does not equal causation. To expand upon this concept, I'll give you an example you can relate to.

    Because you are "the gay Russian philosopher", and you do "Wing Tsun", that doesn't necessarily mean that doing "Wing Tsun" will cause you to be gay, or cause you to be a combination of gay and a philosopher.

    We just usually see a high correlation between those things here.

    WHAT AN IMBECILE THREAD.
    Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.

    My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    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
