    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    The *ONE* stupidest thing you ever believed about martial arts!

    For me it was:

    When I was a kid, I thought that different stances were better suited to different things, i.e. Cat Stance was teh uber fast and Horse Stance was nigh unmovable!

    You?

    I thought that ninjas where actual martial artists, and that you had half a brain.

    A good TKD guy can just block all of a boxer's punches and annihilate him with spinning back kicks. (was a big TKD nut)

    More complicated/harder to pull off moves were better.

    Damn, if only the general public could embrace this.

    But then we would have a lot of action movies that would end in 2 minutes.

    Hey, man, it takes about 65 minutes of film before the hero even learns the final finishing move, let alone use it to avenge his father/brother/master.

    Boxing/Judo/Muay Thai/Kickboxing etc. were just sports and therefore not useful for real fighting.

    You know, as opposed to doing preset kata and punching the air, which is perfect for real fighting. :angry7:
