    _udo.

    Hey, koreans call it yudo.
    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.


    - W.B. Yeats

    BJJ might make you a better ground fighter, but Judo will make you a better dancer. Join us... or die

    You know Omega I really don't know but I do know that on the web site when they speak of the fighting art they use the "e" and when they speak of the insect they use an "a". So it is done on purpose I am led to believe. I tried looking up other PMKF and they all spell theirs with an "a". The 8step system is spelled with an "e" (I guess to symbolize the difference from other mantis systems, but that is just an assumption.)

    Not what I meant, the "Ba" should actually be "Pa" meaning "8" although it is prounounced "Ba"

    From the 8 Step web site:

    "The advanced techniques mimic the preying mantis' ability to draw in its opponent and strike with devastating power. Add to that efficient and deceptive footwork, joint locks, throwing techniques, and internal energy work and you have a complete system of martial arts."

    It looks like they are just clueless about spelling in general.

    _____ and her brother _____ enjoyed _____ on _____. Sometimes, when it got really _____ they would get _____ and goto the _____.

    Yay, it's AdLib time!

    The 8 step school probably changed the A to and E so it would sound less preachy. And I think I know one mantis guy who CAN fight... although now that he competes he does mostly kickboxing and BJJ. Oh well.
