I WANT THE JPEG VERSION.
10/19/2007 7:57pm, #34A short description out of my own brain: Quick and direct, cutting out the crap. Simple stand up with no frills.Wigginton's stuff: Tactics and the use of deadly force to help the person commit suicide and applied to armed/unarmed fighting skills.
Bujinkan: The refinement of body dynamics applied to Ju Jutsu weapons and striking skills.
Sho Ran Ryu: Breaking the other persons bones with high impact explosive strikes in rapid succession (as opposed to with one strike).Gojujitsu
Using strikes and kicks to close the distance so you can throw someone and be on top to submit, strike or get away.GoJo-Ryu Karate-Do
Rapid close-quarter stand-up, characterised by alternating softness and hardness, circularity and linearity.Martial Tai Chi: A sorta mix of boxing and wrestling with a few simple kicks and lotsa odd but difficult chinese callisthenics and a few forms. Does alright in San Shou if you train hard enough.

It seems that the only people who support anarchy are faggots, who want their pathetic immoral lifestyle accepted by the mainstream society. It wont be so they try to create their own.-Oldman34, friend to all children

The purpose of the thread is to be concise and clear, without the usual fluffery. My assumption is that this will enable posters to gain a more lucid sense of their own art (which might be crap).
Your post might be right (we'll see), but ultimately it's not very helpful (which is in character, at least).

Now maybe you feel like that is unattainable but that is another issue. My point is that I used that description for that reason not to sound hyperbolic. I am sure others have reasons why they describe their arts as they do.

Taijutsu: depending on the school it can either be very good or pretty bad, but its creative, effective and can be very sneaky.
Grappling: great way to beat the crap out of someone without punching, kicking or trash talking the person.

Jiu-jitsu, the purest state of being I have ever attained.
This is not a flippant post.
