    How can you encourage a kid to play SOCCER! SOCCER!!!! One of the most violent, hooliganistic sports in the world. For shame!!!!

    because football is played with feet.Hence the name.
    Get with the program people...please...

    On topic>that transcript reminded me of certain schools i never hope to be in again.
    Feel bad for the kid,but its good that he's so sharp already that he sees through their scam.
    Good for him.
    Kempofist>does he have a nice looking mum?

    Was talking to one of the other guys that quit along with me about this. Funny cause, now we are both legitimately training, and we've seen how real schools do it, even what we did back then wasn't too great -but still leaps and bounds beyond what is done now. You can see in my critique thread in the style forums (Kempo forum) on here what my take on it was. In hindsight, what I was doing at best was rationalizing the crappy techniques, and taking the focus off of them and onto what they can actually apply in sparring.

    But in this kids class in particular, I had a half a dozen other kids like him that took to it all like fish to water. Show them basic clinchwork, takedowns, pad drills, and they'd just apply it like they've been doing it for years in sparring. It is a shame that since I left, it truly all has come to a complete stop, to the point that the only time they don gear is when preparing for point sparring tournaments that come around twice a year.

    Oh come on, I had to lighten the mood! I still do privates with him, he's not done with MA.

    ....and soccer has aliveness in their training!

    Lebell, if they play with their feet, why not call it FEETBALL?

    See, that is how we know that the TOOTHBRUSH was invented
    in Kentucky or West Virginia....had it been invented anywhere else,
    it would have been called a TEETHBRUSH.

    Maybe Ke?pofist should have sent the lad to play hockey....oh so violent!

    Has the other Kempo James started training anywhere? Does that kid play on the Hauppauge league? Also, you can call it Soccer, football, futball, futbol, I call it a boring waste of time. Let's watch people run for an avg. of 7 miles, with a ball.

    Well he just got back to going to the gym with me and Jason at night. Right now he's focusing on getting back into shape, and getting his strength back where is used to be.

    I have a feeling he will either be joining Heavy Hitters boxing (most likely scenario) and if not that, he'd probably end up going to Vamos BJJ because they are cheaper and closer considering his time constraints.

    Does that kid play on the Hauppauge league?
    Not sure, but I'd assume so. I don't think they have many options at that age.

    Also, you can call it Soccer, football, futball, futbol, I call it a boring waste of time. Let's watch people run for an avg. of 7 miles, with a ball.
    Better than baseball :laughing7

    Then again, the only sport I really watch and follow is MMA

    Good for that kid. I really have to wonder how it took so long for some of the people on this site to realize their training was completely worthless. I was about 12 when I started TKD at the local YMCA. It took about a month to realize I was learning crap and I quit. Maybe it helped to have a really cynical dad and a some college wrestlers in the family to keep me anchored in reality...
