    I'm not a fan of taming the beast within, rather to harness the ugly bugger to greater heights.

    But hold on tight onto those reigns lest you run into illegal/unethical territory.

    Am I too read this as the guy was twice your height? Are you a midget, or is he a frost-giant?

    Your tough guy philosophy is lame.

    You may disregard your warning, I thought this was in the striking technique forum.

    But you are still lame and should still change your style field
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    People with bad ego's rarely survive these kinds of Martial Arts. There's always someone bigger / better / stronger / quicker and they'll gladly hand your arse to you if you're an ego driven person.

    I'm not saying you are, I'm quietly confident most guys go through what you went through at least once or twice in their training life. I know I have when I was younger.

    Used to box a guy who was agro and bashed me on a fairly consistant basis. It can be daunting.
    Take a teaspoon of cement before class and you should be right. After a while you will get used to thinking what to do while you are getting smashed up.

    well not saying I had a huge ego like i was all tough and shizz. Though i guess I had an ego in a way that thought of myself as a loser and pathetic. When in fact I should strive to be better not to be a winner, but to do better then the way I am now

    I think that's a pretty good mindset.

    Whenever I think about my own training benchmarks, I like to imagine "Could I kick the ass of myself six months ago?"

    The answer isn't always yes for me, but it's better than needlessly comparing yourself to others.

    I honestly used to be a rag doll in grappling
    kids would pick me up over there heads and toss me
    BUT
    It actually made me really tough for a little bit
    And feeling tough is fun
