    But still... Thats why i like taking them. Hitting things is enjoyable and if you do martial arts no-one tells you off, like they do at schools. And in pubs.
    Hell yes, fucking teases. Also it depends where you're drinking I guess, I've seen some horrid pubs.

    Mainly for excercise. Oh, and getting kicked in the head and making their face bleed.

    But mainly for excercise.

    Or maybe you are a competitive male.

    I can't say I train MA since I'm always on and off, but I like the challenge that it places upon myself. It's not as much about competing or measuring myself against others, but about "how far can I go"? Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of competing or measuring myself with others, but I'm more interested on what I can achieve and learn in MA for me and for me alone.

    I also think that every male should have at least some understanding of what fighting really is (I said understanding, not proficiency, certainly not to achieve Couturesque's levels.)

    Also, I like the people who train MA (so far, the people I've met in Judo and BJJ/MMA or the people I've known that compete or have competed in TKD or boxing.) They are interesting. They are not a bunch of hipster bovines.

    My interest was rekindled about 3 years ago after spending 6 years in Salsa dancing (and a lot more in the gym while lifting.) In both scenes, most people are just bovine, simple minded, ruminating, predicably bovine. That's the only adjective I can think of when I try to describe them. Nothing "up there", just show, just looks, just pretend.

    In circles where people beat the crap out of each other, most people who do it as a hobby don't tend to be so (big mega-ass generalization, but that's been my experience with them.)

    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

    Well my friends always seem to want to go dancing and there aren't many good places to dance that have regular brawls breaking out. It's a bit boring really. I miss my old pub back up home. This one time one of the drunk idiots bit the bouncer (for some reason i didn't see), turned into an all out beat up...

    Lol I love Austrailians, I hate to generalise but I have yet to meet an Aussie who didn't like drinking and fighting, surely it's all an act designed to fool people from other countries into not invading?

    :qtank: (Yay, finally a context, however flimsy, to use this emoticon)

    Someone with whom I study is learning taijiquan as he hopes to one day run seminars teaching CEOs and other such corporate leaders the principles of softness and yielding. (Have I mentioned that he's the worst student in the class?)

    Me, I just want to track down and kill those same CEOs with my bare hands immediately after the other guy's seminar lets out.

    Because I like to fight. Kickboxing made me get into less fights when I was younger. I'm a pretty aggressive person and it helps to keep my lid on (I have a legal outlet for it).

    And Judo's been a part of my life since I was really small, so I don't know with that :)
