    This is what he has listed in his sig on Rudy's site:

    John F. Springer
    H'ung Ga & SPM
    43 years in TCMA come June '07
    I'm Old (50) ... and ... EVIL
    Odenton, Maryland
    Shoe Size 10D


    I'm not too familiar with the Chinese arts... Anybody know what "SPM" is?

    JFS and Omar are different guys.

    SPM is likely Southern Praying Mantis.

    From that TV news segment about him though, mostly he seemed to be doing here-in-China-they-don't-know-I'm-a-nerd fu.
    Yes his making the news clearly means that in China he is seen as a curious novelty i.e on the same level as a skateboarding otter. Aww bless.

    D'oh! Brain fart. Copied the wrong sig. Thanks, Rivington.

    Omar's reads:
    Hung Gar 8 Years while crosstraining in Bagua.
    Baji + Taiji since 2001 (with limited Xingyi and Bagua)
    4 years TKD and about 2-3 years of trying out all sorts of stuff


    There we go...

    0/10. Omar is TINY. MINISCULE. I'm average size. He clearly generates no power at all or next to none.

    And you disagree that JFS is a vicious weirdo?

    I don't care what you say about my disability. You've probably never been in a fight in your life and by "fight" I mean your safety or the other person's.

    Plus you're not a qualified neurologist anyway. You sit on your fat arse watching machines tick over.
    What am I?:

    I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.

    I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.

    That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

    :occasion1

    Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

    however Omar doesn have 4 functioning limbs and a modicum of intellegence.
    point/set/match Omar

    yes I agree and believe you to be the crazed weirdo/

    well, let the games continue then.

    Plus you're not a qualified neurologist anyway. You sit on your fat arse watching machines tick over.
    I think you have me confused with someone else.
    By all accounts, I am quite sure this is a common occurance with you.

    Sorry, Fickle's gimmick is very similar.

    I also have 4 functioning limbs. Put my Blundstones on and I can punt somebody in the nuts as well as the next man. My arms function perfectly. Plus Botox would give me about 6 months grace.

    That's what got me interested in grappling all those years ago. When taken to the ground, it evens things up a bit.

    By the way, you misspelled intelligence. Trying to insult my intelligence is just another character assassination attempt.

    Mentioning disability again - points for Aarvarks and I.

    Dodging the issue of not training, and making idle threats. 0/10




    You fail.
    If you can't laugh at yourself,
    Others will be happy to do it for you. :evil6:

    The 2 most abundant elements in the universe are hydrogen and stupidity.
