    Since I took kung fu I'm not going to list the obvious like chain punches are awesome and the horse stance builds kicking power, etc.

    When I usto watch people grapple and saw someone who was mounted or side mounted I usto believe those people were pussies because they couldn't just power out of it.

    I also usto believe that throwing a guy on his ass would be easy, and usto practice throwing imaginary opponents in hypothetical situations.

    This isn't related but I kicked my dog by accident once when I was younger practicing spinning crescent kicks. I also usto practice punching as close to my cat as possible without hitting him. After a while he didn't even flinch, just gave me that "you're a fucking LARPin' piece of ****" look.

    I usto believe that by practicing my forms with forceful movements I would be increasing my punching power. This might have helped a little as it got me usto throwing a lot of energy into a technique in as little of time possible but of course there are better methods for doing so.

    I usto believe in throwing a lot of back fists as you were striking and potentially blocking a shot at the same time. This sounds nice in theory but in application if you're not fighting a complete tool it tends to not work.

    I usto believe my Sifu was hiding the grappling component of kung fu from me and all the applications to the forms until I realized that he knew nothing of either. He is a decent pseudo-kickboxer but I didn't see him use any of his kung fu in the six years I studied under him.

    I usto believe in the knee stomp and standing elbow snatch and break.

    There's lots more but that's all I feel like posting for now. In short taking a bullshido martial art when you're in the "I'm six feet tall and bullet-proof" stage of development just isn't healthy, mmk?

    I saw Drunken Master in theaters at a birthday party years back.

    I came to the conclusion that Drunken Boxing was all powerful since drunk people are better at fighting than sober people. I tried to seek out this style; fortunately it's rare enough that I couldn't secure a location to train in it.

    If you go back far enough, to like when I was ten, I used to believe pro-wrestling was real.

    I pretty much went from typical layman saturated with martial arts myths misinformation to bujinkan nutrider, then transitioned over the course of a year or so to uber-combat sports nutrider.

    Up until about 2 years ago I thought that Boxing consisted of two overweight guys hugging each other for 3 minutes at time for an hour. Figured there was NO WAY that was any use on t3h str33t.
