He was going to handle it by doing neither. That's the beauty of throwing a challenge over the internet to someone living hundreds, thousands of miles away.
Now, if bighorse really meant it (like a man would), he'll travel or pay for poidog's travel and lodging expenses INDEPENDENTLY OF THE OUTCOME OF THE FIGHT. After all, he is the one doing the challenge.Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph.

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

Of course, if the record from the above posts holds, this will take roughly two years for a response to get up, and it will appear in an unrelated thread.

To pre-empt another internet drama, Bighorse, if you two do end up fighting and Poidog beats the **** out of you on video, please don't claim biased reffing or that you tapped to an 'ear grind'."

anyone want to lay odds on:
1.) who will beat whom?
2.) whether or not bighorse will return to complete this bullshido challenge
3.) how soon it will take to get the "Bad Horse" themsong from Doctor Horrible out of my head since i read that guy's nick.

El paso eh?
How about you come down to Goodphil Games @ Dallas this year with the UT El Paso Filipino Student Association kids.
I'm sure they'd love to do a FMA routine for cultural. (Last time FMA was done at GP, it was apalling.. they dropped the sticks in the middle of the demo... WTF. I think that was baylor though.)
I'll spar you for shits and giggles.
also take note.. I am no where close/near a substitute for poidog in skill.
I just like to go "bang bang" with the sticks.

Big Horsey. . .
Did you actually train under punong guro Edgar?
Or, was it through attending a seminar?
In either case, could you describe any things that
you have gained from training with Edgar Sulite?

Godammit. All this 'horsin' around is killing me.
I wish we could comehow punish all the people who set up bullshit challenges by making them actually follow through with it."This is why we are here. Because the Martial Arts for too long have been cloaked in an unnecessary level of secrecy bordering on mysticism, and its in these shadows that the cockroaches love to hide. -Phrost"

Maybe we can get a bunch of "Bullies" in the area to
respectfully (at least at first) show up at his school.
Then let the teacher know why they are there (his
internet challenge), and then, proceed to friendly
sparring with everyone except him.
