Not working.Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

really? it's working for me.
oh...thanks brand. whatever you did...Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

Classic hazing bullshit. At least they don't seem to pretend it's a official part of their martial tradition.
My school used to "kick" people into higher ranks. After your promotion you would stand in a horse stance and your instructor would kick you. Apparently it was some sort of American Kenpo tradition. Most of the time it was harmless, but when my instructor was promoted to his 4th he was kicked so hard he was pissing blood afterwards. The tradition still continued though. Finally when my instructors daughter got to the ranks were a kick in was "required" he couldn't do it and removed all that **** from our school.

Who was the tubby dude? He seemed really into it. It was funny when the chick hit him.
I don't see any harm in it.
Camarillo is a stud.And that's when I figured out that tears couldn't make somebody who was dead alive again. There's another thing to learn about tears, they can't make somebody who doesn't love you any more love you again. It's the same with prayers. I wonder how much of their lives people waste crying and praying to God. If you ask me, the devil makes more sense than God does. I can at least see why people would want him around. It's good to have somebody to blame for the bad stuff they do. Maybe God's there because people get scared of all the bad stuff they do. They figure that God and the Devil are always playing this game of tug-of-war game with them. And they never know which side they're gonna wind up on. I guess that tug-of-war idea explains how sometimes, even when people try to do something good, it still turns out bad.

i don't see the harm in it either....but when it comes to a 'BEATDOWN KICK YOU IN YOUR NUTS' hazing...then that's a problem. the belt whipping is all in good fun.Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity.

Initiation for new black belts at arnis camps usually involves a spanking and some good natured teasing, nothing hyper-macho "I CAN TAKE TEH PAIN" crap but just general good times.
