    This is also a very naive statement. In hockey to object is to advance the puck while maintaining control. Hits are not the objective, they are only used to separate a player from the puck. Hits in football are used to stop the guy with the ball, or stop the guy trying to stop the guy with the ball, or slow down the guy trying to catch the ball or ...

    @ football, during games they wear tons of protection (I dont know much aboutfoot ball) but those guys are wearing stuff like they are in a chemical area coverd in some special robot suit. They have a helmet, mouth peice, that big chest plate looking thingy, and some stuff on thier legs..... no one answerd my MMA question yet.....=(.

    SERIOUS QUESTION!!!!, I am thinking about headding to the principal and ask if it is possible for the school I am enrolled in to have a MMA club, what should I say? any tips for persuasion? I really need help! I am really thinking about asking our principal to make a new MMA club, (we are allowed to talk to the principal about new clubs" any tips for me? please help. Most people at my school are into things like football and mostly team sports (wich are also fun) but Im more of a combat sport person

    only problem really is who will teach the MMA club, I will ask around about this! =) (we could be in the p.e gym using the wrestling mats, or just use the wrestling room)
    I think its a great Idea, but I need tips to help make sure the principal will trust me with the idea, you know.

    Can some one help?

    Heh, I wish I'd gone to Winchester instead of Horace "The Cocksucker" Greeley HS in Chappaqua.

    Nothing naive about it. Fighting will get you a penalty in hockey. Fighting will get you a trophy in combat sports. My kid likes to fight. I put him in combat sports instedd of hockey.

    Whats the problem?

    striking is really not that big of a deal, look at boxing gyms, & I am working on a desighn for a 16 oz glove, hollowed out boxing glove!

    any how the truth is kids who fight at club don't fight in school, I live it It really works! the stupid idea that it will cause fights is moronic!
