Ten scientific principles that apply to the study of all martial arts:

1) The wimp who made it through the eliminations on luck alone will suddenly turn into Bruce Lee when you're up against him.

2) The referee will always be looking the other way when you score.

3) You will have trouble with the ties on your gi pants when members of the opposite sex are in class.

4) The day you leave work early to make it to class on time, the sensei will be sick.

5) The sensei will only use you during demonstrations for joint-locking techniques.

6) If you have to use your training in self-defense, your attacker's father will be a lawyer.

7) After a flawless demonstration, you will trip on your way back to your seat.

8) After years of training without a single injury, you will pull a groin muscle the night before your black belt exam.

9) In an otherwise vacant locker room, the only other person will have the locker right next to yours.

10) No matter how many times you take care of it before your promotion exam, you will invariably have to go to the bathroom when it's your turn.

That BJJ white belt you're trying to school will turn out to have a black belt in Judo.

The Judo white belt you’re trying to school will turn out to be an all-state wrestler…

Having training insurance, you can be thrown, choked, armbarred without any injury. When insurance expires and you don´t renew it, you get injured in next training by basic throw. (Empirical experience :icon_mrgr )

Your first fight in any tournament is always against the person who wins it all.

You're fine after getting your ass kicked while sparring hard with one of your gym's animals, but you get injured after taking a love tap from a newbie.

You have no trouble kicking tall people in the face, but you tear your hip flexor trying to step over a large puddle after class.

You beat the piss out of a TKD BB and as you walk off the mat, he hooks you.

I side kicked him as hard as a possibly could for that.
