I can't work up very much venom really...I mean...okay...it's fucking ghey. What are you gonna do?
Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

"WhyteTyger: xma xma is just a new definition for an old technique of applying many different styles and skills (ie… tumbling, gymnastic, etc) into one form. bruce lee had begun to introduce that practice back in the 60s and 70s, but very few caught on. xma is taking it to the next level, with dedication (which is what takes to pioneer a new style). great job on the discovery channel! awesome info! i hope xma really takes off. it will be a new bread of warriors. i can not wait for a xma to open up in my area!!"
Someone posted this on the chatboard thing on the front page. Makes me sad.

Cut their heads off mount them on poles, then watch birds eat their eyeballs out.
But no one ever listens to my ideas. (probably because they are highly illegal, but that does not mean they are necessarily bad ideas)

I would have a Gracie Challenge in the middle of it.
That would have made me happy...or MT or Judo or Boxing or Redneck challenge...
It did have one classic line "Never underestimate a drunk"
And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

I seriously think this may destroy the martial arts.
This isn't only a north american phenomena, one of the biggest tricks sites on the net is run out of sweden (bilang.com). I can do alot of the flippy stuff that they do, I was actually pretty gung ho into it for a while. But after watching that show I realised how much my opinion towards it has changed. Competition wushu and capoeira are fine by me, but this XMA "revolution" might be the end. As popularity rises people will start demanding this of local martial arts school, and to make money I see a lot of them implementing chat's program.

I think this XMA thing is great! I'm gonna have such an easier time beating their asses on the "street"! Being able to beat 99% of all MA'ers out there just got SOOOO much easier!
Punches in bunches and kicks kicks kicks!
