    I used to think that being able to stop my TKD kicks an inch away from a person meant I'd really be able to beat some ass in a fight. I mean, it's only an inch, right? Of course I can just kick all the way through for real, why wouldn't I be able to? Thankfully, this stupid belief was never put to the sure-to-be-embarrassing test, since I had the previously mentioned karate mystique on my side. I also tried not to publicize it too much and mostly wanted to be left alone, which probably helped.

    Also, I used to think that sparring was way overrated. Just because you beat the crap out of each other on a regular basis doesn't mean you know anything about fighting! I mean, you get hurt, and then you can't train, and then you can't learn more, so obviously sparring is crap.

    *groan* I actually found some old tapes my parents had of some of my TKD tournaments. I can't believe I really thought I was being taught how to fight.

    I don't generally talk about my training much with people other than my fiancee, other than grumping about my bloody nose, or my busted up legs, or my puke-inducing liver. But for some reason, my friends seem to think this makes me a badass and constantly go on about how they wouldn't mess with me. Anybody else get kind of aggravated by that?

    lol yeah especially when you're trying to invite someone to train, n they ask you if you get hurt, you explain that everyone gets a little hurt n they find an excuse not to come along

    As I well found out in my youth that theory doesn't hold up in the real world. Yeah we were taught the same thing about pulling kicks. The only thing is they never tell you that in real fights the lethal karate kid may be so used to pulling kicks that he can't throw a real one and may freeze when threatened. Yeah a lot of people freeze when threatened and do nothing or else they can't focus so they throw punches that don't connect but instead glance to the side. I learned that the hard way.

    When i trained TKD i liked watching boxing (still do), but I couldnt figure out the scoring.
    Only used to point sparing, i thought they got points everytime they hit the other guy. I still couldnt understand how a guy who got demolished for 12 rounds ended up with 108-109 points. And how every time both boxer got in around 110-120 hits each.

    I was young.

    One thing we can all agree on: We were retarded before we joined martial arts and we may still be retarded.
