    At a wrestling dual meet in HS, I say to myself outload "Christ, I don't wanna be here." Buddy of mine next to me says "Yeah you do dude, there's no where you wanna be but here." I say "I'd rather be at TKD class (strike 1)." He goes "No you wouldn't dude, because this is gonna make you a better fighter than that ****. If a wrestler was gonna take you down, what would TKD do?" I reply, totally seriously "Just strike the throat."

    Even WITH wrestling I needed saving.

    I also used to be brainwashed by BJJ, thinking that even with 3 years of folkstyle wrestling under my belt, I would fall victim to the magical guard of BJJ and find myself without arms and choked unconscious. My wrestling would be totally useless.

    hmmm....MA fallacies I let go over the years.....

    My numbchuck skills were the reason why the State of Massachusetts made their possession illegal (circa 1989).

    The bunki for my kama form would result in the death of 52 people...but only if I had Robert Tepper's "No Easy Way Out", from the Rocky IV soundtrack, playing in my head.

    My legs were MUCH longer than my arms so it was only logical to rely solely on my prowess with a hook kick to win fights.

    If Van Damme fought Seagal the MA world as we knew it would probably implode due to the shear awesomeness of the match.

    My jump spinning crescent kick could break someones neck.

    It is much faster to respond to a self defense situation from a strong elongated front stance because hopping around like a boxer made you inherently off balance and easier to take down.

    Ninjas were masters of all arts...no one could beat a ninjer....NO BODY!!!!!!

    Judo, Wrestling, Jujitsu, etc...were not practical for self defense because a grappler crumbles when you hit them; and a kick my kill some who doesn't train how to kick like a grappler.

    Stylized violence/martial arts are boring

    I used to love MA/cheesy action movies until I discovered what real fighting was, now I just watch dramas and romance movies, damn grappling is teh gay

    I used to believe Aikido people were badass and that TKD black belts were tough. I also used to think boxing was completely useless (That perception didn't change until I started watching Hajime no Ippo, reccomended by a website, and sought out an MMA school, which makes it even sadder)

    Forgive me.

    I used to believe that all martial arts were equal. I thought that if somebody trained hard enough in kung fu, karate, judo, or ninjitsu; they would be able to kick a large amount of ass.

    Used to think all techniques were equal percentage, it's just a matter of using the right one at the right time. I therefore didn't see that it was a waste of time to learn 1000 variations of the standing wristlock.

    Some Black Belt Krottyka once told me that doing Kata Applications prepare you for a fight better than Sparring. I believed him...

    I used to do lunge punches then freeze and people told me sparring wasn't realistic. I believed them.
