Newbie. Don't really believe in styles, just in figuring out how to tell when someone's going to punch me. Since no one's ever gonna read this, I'll just have a look around.

Then why you are a martial arts forum?

Have you ever trained in any styles, or just seen the Bruce Lee documentary ten times?

Since I predictiate that this here thread is going to go to crap soon, I want to say that that documentary is one of the single largest causes for MA larping and idiocy. A karate instructor who does some crappling recently commented that I "flow like water" on the ground, but that my "water style" could be easily countered by "becoming like earth". Seriously. Then she gave up an opportunity to roll with me, because other people wanted the mats. *sigh*. Someday, she won't have an excuse, and then BJJ will win again.

what's a larp?

live action role play(ing, er). used colloquially to identify those who claim they can or are learning to fight, but either don't train or don't train in an effective manner, and are thus deluding themselves. essentially, posers.

It is Fake

That sounds closer to bad version of the movie Mystery of Chessboxing to me.

So, why don't you believe in styles?

sounds like he practices face to fist style. But on the serious side, why haven't you been able to hit back?
