Ok so I am over on Ashida Kim's message boards stirring up **** when someone makes mention of how well Dux-Ryu would do in the UFC. Someone over there asked if I have ever heard of the kumite or Pacific Rim Fighting. Of course I have heard of the Kumite (I used to love bloodsport...KUMITE KUMITE KUMITE), and I know that Dux can't show any proof that such a competition ever took place, but I must admit that I have nevere heard of Pacific Rim Fighting. I tried a search before posting this but i came up empty. Can anyone shed some light on this? Thanks.

Welcome aboard, debul937! The Bullshido staff would welcome you personally, but the thing is they’re busy keeping the peace, so they’ve apointed me, a bot, to pat you on the back and assure you that in no way will you be harmed during your stay here at BS.net. Your views on the martial arts, your philosphy, maybe even your entire reason for being will be challenged, shattered, reorganized, melted down, and forged into something new and shiny, but we swear it will only hurt a little bit… at first.

Those bots creep me out...
I thought the Pacific Rim was one of the dinner specials you could order at the Melting Pot...

That's what it sounds like, but given the fact that i had no idea what it was i didn't want to make an uninformed comment. If he would have only said kumite i would have continued running my mouth. He asked the question with such a sense of righteous indignation too. Really irked me.

*As I see the reason for ninja not competing is twofold:
1. competition proves almost nothing. when you take into account that your against another in a one-on-one fight, either no weapons or both using the same. Also, no fatal strikes can be used for obvious reasons.
2.The ninja needs to prove nothing.]"

These guys really are clueless over there. I guess I'm an interloper on their site and i definitely don't buy into all of their mysticism and what have you, but i feel dirty and ashamed for having registered an account with them.

Oh yeah, i don't eat at the melting pot. Call me uncultured, but i refuse to pay a hundred bucks for a couple of pots of melted cheese.

There's an Oriental Pacific Boxing League, but I really doubt Frank Dux would've been apart of that. Not that you have to be in the Oriental or Pacific area to participate, but just that he can't perform t3h d34dly Dim Mak while wearing boxing gloves.

:bully:

I guess the lack of knowledge on this subject means there was no such thing. Probably safe to assume if Dux is talking, Dux is lying.

If anyone wants to be a "wise guy" about it, any fight in Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines and other surrounding areas can be Pacific Rim Fighting. Why? Because all those countries are in the Pacific Rim! ;)

That being said, I suppose I could get a fight here, and if I win, I could declare myself a winner.

I have no idea if that is what the guy was talking about. I am completely clueless. I was hoping one of you guys would know. It probably is nothing more than another Frank Dux whopper though. The way the guy said it though made it sound like it was the name of an organization.

Yeah i knew about Shooto, but i know for sure Dux hasn't fought for them. I think it is one of his fantasies. Thanks for giving it a shot though.

It's the ambiance...the seclusion and low light that allows your date to give you a handjob at the table.

I can get that at the Red Lobster. Only the best for my lady.

Can you order Bearded Clam at Reb Lobster or is that just part of the take-home menu?

Probably could, but I don't know if I'd want to. From what I've seen, their selection isn't all that fresh, if you know what I mean.
