I used to think that all black belts had some sort of secret power, and that ninjitsu was the most "powerful" art ever..... too many movies as a little kid lol

I use to think that a black belt was so amazing and all that. I use to also think that technique was the sole most important thing in MA training and NOTHING else matters.

I use to also think that MA training was the only thing needed to physically improve, this was before getting into gym .

I thought bruce lee vs. mike tyson would be a good fight. And used to spout the infinite wisdoms of my chun teacher. Also used to give my mates **** for watching american pro wrestling then tell them that japanese pro wrestling real.
Aaaah thats better, this must be what catholic confession is like, I feel a little less dirty.

I believed a lot of the same:
Black belts were untouchable masters
Ninjutsu was th3 d34dly. Actually in the last few years found a Genbukan dojo. Thought it was kind of cool but a lot of sorta impractical stuff, but still thought hey this could work. Then I found Bullshido.

Needless to say, opened my eyes and am now still deciding on a more practical art.
(I'm actually secretly still a ninjer, but as I will use my d34dly skills to kill all who read this, I can safely post it here o_O )

Nope. With a true catholic confession, you'll feel a little dirtier afterwards (how much so depends on the penance the priest, err, lays on you).

I used to believe that all martial arts were equal, based upon the study and skill of the individual practitioner. A part of me still really wants to believe that. Call me an idealist.

You've misspelled "penis."

I used to believe that JCVD was for real.
I used to believe that aikido was not.
Did anyone else used to hear the tales as a kid that the Kung Fu masters could pull your heart out and show it to you before you died? One guy told me that the KUng Fu masters could make themselves lighter and land on a matchbox on its edge and not crush it. Impressionable teens with no cognitive are these guys best audience.

I'm glad you put it that way. It seems that most here still believe Aikido does not work.

Both of these are true actually. Aikido is beyond useless and JCVD went 18-0 in Dutch Muay Thai.

Yeah I guess you're right as opposed to about a hundred or so gentlemen whom I "escorted" out of one the baddest tittie bars in Texas with it over about a 8 yr period who might disagree with you. But I'm sure you know better. Please provide a video of a JCVD title win. That way I can sleep at night again.

And here we go with the same old BS anecdotal evidence about someone working as a bouncer and being the only person in the universe to make some random useless bullshit work. Do you have any vids of you sparring or something? Oh yeah, thought not.

Here is JCVD's wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean_Claude_Van_Damme#Professional_Kickboxing_Reco rd

Scroll down to "Kickboxing record". Looks like I was wrong though. He was 18-1 in amateur Muay Thai, not 18-0.

Wow you've really turned me around here. Spent decades studying a discipline when all I had to do was consult some mouthbreathing misanthrope on these not so hallowed halls who insults people he doesn't know about a subject he knows even less. Thanks for setting me straight. What was I thinking? But then again, someone seems to have a bit of insecurity about his "prowess". Perhaps being jipped in the genitalia dept. is what causes one to lack control of exhibition of inadequacies. Just another lazyboy Looser jacking off to his JCVD sidesplit poster. While this is all fun I'm gonna have to refrain from further correspondence as it becomes futile fighting a duel of wits with an unarmed opponent. When puberty kicks in you can watch the videos of VDs "tournaments" where he performs 86 sidekicks. Yeah right.

It's fun how he never used a direct insult... also, did you actually check out the link he gave you?

To add to this, some would argue that using a certain technique on someone who's so drunk he can hardly work is not necessarily proving its effectiveness in an actual fight.

You're welcome.


What was I thinking?

The same thing all of us were thinking probably. That you could be a ninja or whatever, and that stuff which no empirical evidence has ever supported can be true. If you want to keep trying to convince random people on the internet (this case, me) that you're a super deadly death machine who didn't waste thousands of dollars on snake oil, be my guest, but bullshido is not the place for bullshit MA circle-jerking. Fyi, don't make stupid and unfounded claims here that everyone has heard a million and one times online without hard evidence (video evidence). People here will only make fun of you and continue to piss you off.

That's quite the list of things you've inferred about me from two posts. So I'm insecure, lazy, have a small penis, don't know what I'm talking about, have not gone through puberty, jack off to something about JCVD and can't fight. Lol. Allow me to direct you to a list of very basic informal logical fallacies: http://web.cn.edu/kwheeler/fallacies_list.html
I am aware that you do a bullshit martial art and will not change that. At least you can learn a little something about how to fight properly with your mind here. Start by looking up "ad hominem".
