I was never that delusional.

You ever think that three 'slow-witted street thugs' would be easy to handle with a small amount of training, even if they had knives or baseball bats? I did, until I started reading about the reality of MAs and fighting...

I didn't really get the chance to have any misconceptions about the Martial Arts. Everytime I would bring one up, or mention one to my Old Man, he'd show me how it was wrong in the way only a real father could!

BY BEATING IT INTO ME.

"Dad, a Karate Master could beat a Boxer because he kicks, right?"

Come here, boy. And try to kick me.

"Ok! *kick!*"

The Old Man moved out of the way of the kick and nailed me right in the chest with his fist. I found out what the floor felt like.

I told him about the registering hands rumor too. He stated that he's been in wars. He's ACTUALLY KILLED PEOPLE, yet his hands weren't registered. Certainly puts it into perspective.

Then there's when we talked about Ninjas.

"Boy, the only good Ninjas are turtles. Everyone else are morons or liars. Seriously? A 'once secret art that apparently every Gaijin knows'? Give me a break! I COULD DESTROY THOSE MEN."

I used to believe, even tell my friends, I'm a little guy, so I end the fight fast so it doesn't get to the ground. That sounded so cool...... until a fight ended up on the ground

Some of these are dam crazy!

i was never that delusional. However i did used to believe that boxing was number one and all other martail arts were crap and a waste of time.

Boxing is still my fav but i respect other arts now.

That was a pretty ridiculous belief.

I can grab some of your posts and show that pretty much most posters initially believe this as well.

Ridiculous? Yes. Common? Yes.

I used to believe that unarmed training would let me pick up any random weapon and wield it competently.

I used to believe that a naginata worked essentially like a staff with a blade on one end of it.

I used to believe that "ninja weapons" were teh deadly.

I used to believe that ninja anything was teh deadly.

I used to believe that just a tiny bit of grappling knowledge sufficed, and that striking arts were far superior.

I used to believe that one unarmed strike would routinely end a fight.
