Whats the point in kata???? I understand it can help develop memory co-ordination and self confidence ...make new friends hmmmm! some of the moves seem exagurated in the kata that arent effective, take for example Gedan Bari where its used to fend off leg kicks or maybe a wrist grab, when training in kata the movement is more exagurated..WHY? in a real senario you step off to the side then block or do this simutaneously. I never did much sparring in shotokan and got my ass battered at school but thats a another story for another forum. Karate came from okinowa and adapted from kung fu. Yet in the Katas there are no Parry's like in wing chun (Ving Tsun) such as huen sao. Wing chun and thai boxing has similarites. the point im trying to make in a confrontational situation and **** goes down god forbid! learning kata and learning to pull punches, your heal is on the ground and you punch from the hip youd get puched around in a boxing match, dont you realise that, that **** weill get you killed in the street. Isnt karate then becoming kickboxing if you start parrying or bobbing and weaving, how can you rely on kata pretending to fight invisible opponents, or has karate got two sides like tai chi the soft side and fighting side. exept the soft side in tai chi would work in a real situation...Maybe! After all karate seems cool, sounds cool and people will want to challege you or see your karate, peole now days are hooked on MMA.
don't even get me started on tae kwon do. Tae kwon do sounds cool. all the effective arts have crap names such as boxing, muai thai, Mixed martial arts, if you said twenty years ago I do mixed martial arts youd sound like you were talking out your arse. The only time karate looked awesome was in the cobra kai dojo ( classic) I dont get the kata bit of karate!

Oh penis,

You came and you gave without taking,

But I sent you away,

Oh penis,

You kissed me and kept me from shaking,

And I need you today,

Oh penis!

Nope, that's how I got banned (Although it's not off the table for me to do that again, though).

This looks like a real one. I convinced Phrost to do away with the probationary period for new members, which now means any asshole can just join and start rocketing off amazing posts like this without having a mod review them first. Expect A LOT more.

Edit: For reference, go to the absolute last few pages of YMAS and look at all the threads there. Believe it or not, there was once a time when all the insane posts on here WEREN'T written by me. This used to be pretty run-of-the-mill.

Are people going to be tentative to sandbag trolls/re-res because they expect them to actually be me?

You have trolled a lot here and elsewhere, and also written some funny stuff as well.

So it's case by case to me.

It's summer. School's out, and every year there's a whole slew of new teeny-bopper wannabes that drop turds all over the forums, like so many urban pigeons. It would be the perfect time for HM to troll, because the SNR is relatively low. But, he has an insatiable ego, so I actually expect him to not be engaging in questionable posting practices, at this time - it would be a waste of his talents.

But not so much recently, which is one of the main reasons I convinced Phrost to put more lax restrictions on new posters. I WANT more re-re posts on Bullshido, it's one of the elements that made this site so fun circa 2005.

I think teenage me started this thread. So basically not much has changed.

I call bullshit. I heard Phrost has been dead for like 2 1/2 years.
