Seeking intelligent discussion
Hello there everybody, I came to this site because I like discussions about martial arts, both philosophical and scientific. Wherever I look on the internet, I find "internet warriors" who from the safety of a keyboard, argue for the sake of arguing, and don't use intelligent arguments. For example, in an analysis of what a physical confrontation between Bruce Lee and Mohamed Ali (sp?) would be like if both combatants were ONLY allowed to PUNCH, I see things like "Bruce Lee used wing chun, and wing chun has really fast punches, so Lee would get 50 hits and knock Ali out without Ali getting in a single punch", or, the other extreme, "Bruce Lee was tiny, and his stuff only works in movies. Ali would knock him out in 1 or 2 punches." Now, to me, both of these responses are incredibly retarded and void of any study, experience, research or ability to analyze the situation whatsoever. I found this site, and it appears to be a place where I can discuss something intelligently, so I look forward to it. As for me, I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. I've done martial arts on my own for a long time, and as far as taking classes goes, I have about 2.5 years of experience in hapkido, taekwondo, jiujitsu and mi jong luo han (not all at the same time). Most recently I was doing classes in mi jong luo han kung fu, and I had to give up the classes, as I am an engineering student with a very intense schedule. For now I hope to learn and discuss from all of you at bullshido. Best wishes!

Welcome to Bullshido. Trust me, not all the discourse is intelligent.

Well, you came to the right place, but you'll have to work for it.

If by 'intellectual discussion' you mean 'who would win in a fight?' threads, you've come to the right place.
ps-Please don't start any 'who would win in a fight?' threads.

what he said. And do not post videos. All videos from all time have
been posted here.SEANBABY:

Having an intelligent conversation would completely be dependent upon you. You use the term keyboard warrior and I'm thinking "Who the **** are you to be pointing out these 'keyboard warriors'?"
So ask yourself this question: Is your first post hypocritical?
If your version of an intelligent conversation would appear as a debate panel then you need to get the **** out of here. We have intelligent conversations like a bunch of guys in a bar flipping each other the finger and saying "kiss my ass" when we don't really agree.
Now, the choice is yours.
