    It was on.

    He's swinging, I'm ducking, he's pushing, I'm weaving. He throws me up against the fence.

    AND WHAT DO I DO?

    A Goju-Kai knifehand to the throat.

    He casually slaps it aside, and there's more swinging. I finally catch one above the eye, which opens up and spews blood everywhere (I still have the scar, but luckily the doctor was across the road for stitches).

    So now I'm pissed off. I don't remember much, but we end up on the asphalt, I lock in a choke, and squeeze until he gives up.

    I'm told he sat there for a good ten minutes coughing, hacking, groaning and wheezing after I left.

    But I'm still ashamed of the lame Goju-Kai knifehand. Years of training in Karate, just so I can grapple when I really need it.

    How embarrassing.
    Your knife hand sucks, mine works. Ever try a makiwara?

    Your TKD sucks, so does mine, so I used Kyokushin on the TKD guys and it worked fine.

    In my HS (Punahou, Honolulu) a guy who was bb in Aikido and Judo and brown in karate got taken to the locker room by a bunch of football morons who'd heard that he knew ma and they wanted to fight. He said he'd be happy to fight but first he wanted to arm wrestle. So Kieth Kasporovitch, a massive boy, center on the football team got beat arm wrestling quickly. They had 'em do it again and Kieith again lost. Then no one wanted to fight Walter.

    Your martial art sucked. Walter's didn't.

    , note, this IS my instructor, Del Griffiths, who I found out from others, had beaten Chuck Norris amongst many others (he only said that Chuck had lost to a first degree bb, he's not one to brag), to win the Hawaiian Martial Arts Championship twice... Haole mormon boy did fine, as Bobby Lowe said, "Toughest haole I ever taught."

    So who was your shitty Kyokushin instructor? I want to kick his ass.

    Hey, my personal hero, Andy Hug, used a spinning back hook (heel) to the thigh of an opponent in K1 and it floored the guy.

    Therefore: Your hook kicks suck, Andy's ruled.

    I never said my buddy lost. He was a wrestler too and was definitely the red card leader for the soccer team. Fairly mean kid.

    Although the Ke?po? Definitely sucked. Luckily he never used it. I think the soccer came in handier.

    Belief Ashida Kim was a legitimate martial artist x kiddy krotty + a MT friend willing to help me "try it out."

    = The most obscene ass kicking of my life.

    That's why I took up MT and then boxing.
