    Then again I may be just looking for excuses.
    So shitty Karate and TKD help feed the __un industry, that has to be another strike against those styles.

    No, I didn't get angry because the whole experience was just strange. Escpecially this guy's "test." He seemed like a nice guy so it didn't really bother me either. What I think triggered it was the owner of the store talking about one of my former teachers and that I trained Southern Praying Mantis for a time. The event happened just as I started training Mongolian. I need to go back to the store for a good mouthgaurd. That guy may even be there (why, I don't know). So can can either:

    A) Follow Virus' advice and take the guy down and touch his chest, typewriter style or
    B) Try out some new Chin Na that I learned to make him touch his own chest or
    C) all of the above.

    The only question is: if I make him touch his own chest, do I get the points or does he?

    no you must do it viking style, allow me to give suggestions:

    we live in the 21st century, i suggest you use that, bring a taser, go to the guy, when you're in the store you go like: 'Fucking hell! bruce lee! i thought you were dead man!'
    Shopkeeper turns around to have a look at who you're talking to, thats wen you put the taser in his neck.
    One touch knock out ftw.
    His wife will probably come out to see whats going on, have your way with her, then use the taser, or the other way around, depends on if you like to train 'alive'.
    Then you take his money, put his children into slavery and set fire to the store.

    Nobody will cuddle with you ever again.

    when asking about brazilian jujitsu i was told that it wouldn't pose a threat because matt hughes beat royce gracie

    to sum up, someone who is known for his grappling ability beating someone else known for his grappling ability will lead us to infer that the latter's style of grappling will not hold up against our _ing _un which has no relation whatsoever to the former's grappling style, nor any grappling in itself.

    you just can't argue with logic

    Well, why grapple when you can just drop an elbow on the back of their head, killing them instantly?

    -Elbows and strikes to the back of the head are illegal in UFC for a reason, it really could mess with the brain.

    He was refering to the common dumb guy myth that you can stop the shot by stepping to horse stance and downward elbowing the head of a grappler.

    Hint, this method does not work.

    Of course there is some risk... I've been watching some of the old UFC's lately and a few fights featured repeated heavy elbows to the back of the head. Nobody's head exploded. They got rid of strikes to the back of the head in UFC 15: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ufc#Controversy_and_reform
