Though oddly enough he never competes apparently because he has no competition videos... so wtf is he doing all of this training for?
Seriously, my only intent was to one liner you, watch you bitch about it and be gone because I didn't care what you had to say. You pulled me in by referencing an ancient discussion about my TKD training and since then I have gotten progressively more interested in the discussion. That being said every time you post anything someone is going to find a reason to bitch about it, get over it.
If the percentage of non-training members really is that high then I'm appalled. I always assumed my 6-8 hrs a week was on the back side of average for bullshido members/posters. How does anyone justify the mental disconnect required to be a member here and not train at all (barring injury or advanced age)?

Sun: 2hrs Jits
Mon: Weights, 1hr
Wed: 2hrs jits
Thur: Weights, 1hr
Fri: 2hrs jits
Sat: Horseback Riding, 3-4 hours.
I work 45-50 hours during the week (IT consultant) w/ occasional 80+ hour weeks. And maintain 2 horses 4 dogs. As well as spend a good deal of time with my fiance and my family.
The amount of time I train is the absolute lowest minimum for a hobby. Anyone training less than I am is making 0 progress. I COULD fit 2 days of MT in there, and probably will, but I definitely shouldn't be in the top 50% for training time on here....

People only bitch because I'm right and they're wrong, but they don't want to be and because I'm so keenly aware of how right (read: awesome) I am and how much I want to stick my dick in their face for it.

I'm pretty ronin with my training. I don't have very many friends in the places I train at.
Also, I'm not gonna learn much from these competitions anyway, because some of them are TKD, which I am far beyond the level of anybody locally to even compete with me in my weight class with, not that I'm tooting my own horn. It's just true. Most of the people locally suck and I was an Olympic Nominee. Other competitions are just local Judo or medium contact kickboxing. I won't gain anything from watching me hold back. It's just glorified sparring sessions.

See, the fact that you don't have friends where you train should be a red flag for you in some way. Unless you plan on ditching those places soonish for an MMA gym or something...
I'm looking forward to your pancrase videos though.

Don't read too much into this, Freud. But nice try anyway.
