    Of course there are some people that are hopelessly lost. There are more people that just don't quite get it.


    We are now getting into the scenario part. Well what if.......

    Yes, there are certain people (DTT) who just don't get it (Sifu Rudy) and continue on in their disbelief (JFS).

    I'm not talking about those people. I'm talking about where the contact has been dumbed down and people honestly don't know what they missed. Not in a I'm a dick manner.

    Hell, I bet we all have been that person at some point.

    Then you're talking about reasonable people. These people learn without the need to knock the stuffing out of them. At least in my experience.

    Not always and I've been in quite a few schools. Hell, I've seen it here on this website. A reasonable poster has no clue, gets worked and is shocked.

    Notice I said a good pop. I haven't said beat the **** out of them.

    IIF said:"How long have you been training? Seriously, because both ground and striking can be a chess match. Also, as Geordi pointed out, the same Alpha Male **** pops up in grappling.

    I tend to agree with white shark in that putting you to sleep is different than KO'ing someone:

    Quote:
    You can always tell them afterward "that was at 25% intensity" or whatever, if they don't believe you...****'em. "


    Ive been training 8 years now, if you get choked out I try and be honest about the pressure ****, I think its dangerous to give anyone false expectations of themselves in any way.
    Honesty can be dangerous of course but isnt it always?

    There are some people that just ain't gonna get it. There's people like that in striking and grappling, and there will always be people who think they could've done x at y and beaten you. Something you can't really beat into someone, especially in striking where you hear "lucky punch" more often than not.

    In my opinion, it's more of a mindset difference. Some people want to learn and get better, so they realize when they get their asses kicked. Other people think they're the ****, so they just shrug it off. Nothing you can really do about it, except crush their self esteem with horrible, horrible personal attacks and insults.

    I don't see how this all isn't solved by just saying "I was going light and could have demolished you, if you'd like a demonstration, I'd be glad to provide one now."

    I find humming, singing, or whistling gets the point across.

    A noobs opinion

    I can relate to White Shark's point, here is why.

    I'm a noob, not much MA experience at all. While sparring with those of similar grappling experience I struggle to get a tap, while those of more experience completely dominate. I can't grapple for **** and I know it.

    Striking sparring seemed to be different though. I land good shots against my peers frequently. And I seem to be holding my own against some guys with more experience. Or so I thought. And then I sparred against someone who stopped taking it easy on the noob.

    It was shocking. And a little bit painful. And a great wake up call. My striking is sucky too. I've alot more work to do.

    So, those of you that are good at this game, please continue to smack the noobs. And the chunners too, apparently.

    Some will never answer the wake up call. But some will.

    Thank you,

    I think we have entered into an interpretation debate.
