I get a charge out of the "after 20 years I'll be out of the beginners stage". That is just the party line mumbo-jumbo. If your are not any good after about 5 years there is no hope for you.

Can we try to n ot derail the thread with silly bitching about things like this? There are plenty of threads for you to bash BJJ on. Then you can go curl your pubic hair and paint your nails.

I'm not bashing anything. I'm just making a statement. I just hate to hear BS like that. Saying that after 20 or so years, you are ready to learn. That means that you have wasted all that time doing BS stuff. You lost me on that curling hair and nail stuff - JKDTurkey. :qleapfrog :5kidding: :5kidding:

It is Fake

This forum, MABS, is going to be moderated stronger. Your only three posts have been attacking the "20 years" statement. Now, this is considered trolling inside MABS. So sorry.

Not only is that trolling let see have you posted your ranks or lack there of?

Nope!

So, you aren't contributing either.

Hmmm as of this post you (JKDchick and now me) are causing a thread derail. Please take his post and quote what you don't like in YMAS.

No, this isn't censorship it is putting the correct responses in the correct forums.

In another thread, which I don't want to derail, I responded to a comment that said "After 20 years of training, I'll be ready to learn." That statement is used by a lot of guys that spew the same of Martial Arts BS. These are the guys who are willing sweep the floor for 5 years before they are shown a down block. The object of Martial Arts is to learn how to defend yourself and how to fight. If after 5 years of training you can't fight, you are hopeless or in the wrong Art.

I thought this forum was for discussion. I just expressed myself to a statement I saw. I attacked no one, and in fact was attacked. If we cannot have a discussion on things posted then this forum is useless.

PS. I started a new thread so that I won't "derail" this one.

So you think pushing a broom for 5 years is OK. Bring something to the table.

This thread is worthless because you brought nothing to the table.

What did you expect?

this thread is a lost cause but i agree if you are "just starting" after twenty years you wasted a fuckload of time. just to throw my 20 cents in there.

/attempt to ressurrect doomed thread
i dont think that quote is meant to be taken litterely

when you first learned the armbar you thought "wow, i can do an armbar"
last week when you learned a small variation to make it work better you thought "wow, i just made my armbar better"
in 20 years you will probably still be learning stuff like this.

that is my understanding of the context of the quote
