I take offense to someone calling me an MMA fighter. I don't think they even know what MMA stands for. And I really just hate acronyms too. Am I the only one annoyed by this?
    You loathe acronyms yet have TKD in your style field instead of typing TaeKwonDo? :D Hehe.

    People that are not involved in any martial art cannot be expected to undestand the differene between a right hook and a chi blast :) , I for one dont even talk about training with people I dont know well...

    Guy: What do you train in?
    Me: Kickboxing.
    Guy: Ki - bo - xing? Is that something Chinese?

    I cried...

    Hell, you see posers even in MMA gyms. Those guys that have 2 lessons under their belt, and for the third lesson wear sprawl shorts or Windy thai shorts, a gracie barra rash guard, wrestling shoes, Windy Thai gloves and Quano MMA gloves.
    How does purchasing equipment make one a poser? do you train in the nude or something?

    What I hate is when I tell people I'm a kickboxer and people will respond "oh yeah, my wife does kickboxing".

    Try saying bjj and have people looking at you going like "what"? Then trying to pull a visualization on them by asking if they ever saw mma or "vale tudo"...not the same of course, but some of the techniques they pull on the ground are the same.
    "So that means you punch and soccer kick people around, right? Too brutal!"
    "NOOOO, NOT THE SAME! You wear gi's and you fight on the ground...most of the times!"

    Then you give up and just ask..."do you know judo? It's a brazilian distant cousin"

    My post is totally retarted and filled with sillyness but try talking about martial asrts with regular joes.

    There's a difference between "purchasing equipment", and purchasing the entire section of "From TUF 5" off of combat sports when you don't even know how to stand properly.

    I just say I'm a wrestler. Not strictly accurate but its close enough and a term that most people are familiiar with. Unfortunately, sometimes I have to clarify that no, I don't mean WWE.
