Thread: How do you define martial arts?
5/05/2010 8:30am, #31
martial arts is just a name. Define Bob for me, or Dave.
the point is the only point of martial arts should be to learn to fight.. the whole fucking honour **** is just a tumour on fighting's testicle."The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero projects his fear onto his opponent while the coward runs. 'Fear'. It's the same thing, but it's what you do with it that matters". - Cus D'Amato

I always thought that Bullshido's Godwin's Law stated that as a thread about martial arts grows in length the probability of someone making a comparison or reference to Bruce Lee approaches 1.It seems to me that the Sanjuriu Martial Art is not in guestion, but, rather the character of Mr. Galt.

There is also a report on here somewhere that said the chinese used to all do dirty fighting by pulling each others long hair.. honour and such are not linked to fighting, in fact they are arguably detrimental to it"The hero and the coward both feel the same thing, but the hero projects his fear onto his opponent while the coward runs. 'Fear'. It's the same thing, but it's what you do with it that matters". - Cus D'Amato

i always thought that if we were refered to as martial artisans rather than martial artists, it would cut out a lot of the superflous **** bandied about regarding this entity we all love so much

This whole thread reminds me why I dropped Philosophy as a major. You can sit around with underachieving potheads all day and argue about what 'good' is but it will have no impact on anyone's daily existence or decision making process.
A more interesting debate would be Quick Kick or Snake Eyes, which would you pick and why?

I have voted numerous times already for Snake Eyes. Ninja. Duh. Quick Kick's skill set includes "zen sword." What's that?
And if the question is uninteresting to you, why bother reading the thread? It obviously interests some people because the question keeps coming up in various ways.
