Why do YOU do Martial Arts?
I have so far lived a pretty boring life. Recently I joined MT and found that I love it. Why? Because I feel alive. I love hitting and getting hit. The pain, and the relief. I will go up against anyone even though I know I will get knocked the **** out. Maybe I am just a violent person.
I fight cause it scares me....
The only valid reason to ever do Martial Arts: To kick the **** out of absolutely anything that needs the **** kicked out of it.
TV sucks, golf sucks, drinking is too expensive. Martial arts just helps fill in the time between work and sleep, that would otherwise be spent foolishly.
Why? To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
I take this to mean you have a grudge against heavybags and pads?

If i may say, if i was someones woman, and he was crushed so easily, I'd take the bastards money and go shopping.
