I think Phrost was on right track when he wanted to replace LARPing with ManDancing. I think there should be LARPing for standup arts (ie. Karate, Kung Fu, etc.) and ManDancing for grappling arts (ie. Judo, Jiu Jitsu, etc.). ManDdancing would involve physical contact between partners (i.e. hand-to-hand, etc). This video is one example of ManDancing:

Sure you guys can come up with others.

Yea but it's a drill - it's a form of practice rather than out and out LARPish behaviour....I just don't think it qualifies

Seriously though, that video shows a drill to teach correct timing for sweeps, it's not LARPing in the least. It looks a bit like dancing because it is, except that instead of trying to keep in step with your partner you try to get half a step ahead so you can catch them just as they're planting their foot (best time to sweep).

They're very useful drills.

That's the newaza.

And the ass fucking.

Seriously though, I can never make that fucking throw work. I think it's because I dance more of a cha cha cha, and that throw requires more of a polka step.

I was recently dancing at a wedding, and it's pretty hard to resist practicing those throws.

"Why do you keep speeding up?"
"Uh.. nothing."

You video selection leads me to believe you fail at life.

And I decree from henceforth anyone that uses the term "man-dancing" be declared lacking a proper sense of humor, and shall be known as really REALLY ghey.

Just to clarify, I didn't necessarily want to replace "LARPing" with "Mandancing as much as add another term to categorize the fruitcakes in MA.
