    Idle Thought

    Idle thought: What if we took, oh let's say:
    A Tai Chi Chuan practitioner
    A Yellow Bamboo practitioner
    A Yoga practitioner
    A Pilates practitioner
    A Jazzercise practitioner
    A Yogilates practitioner
    A Person Who Watched A Video On How To Fight
    A 5th Degree Dan From A Mcdojo
    Any Other Pseudo-"Martial Arts" Person You Can Think Of

    We take these fighters, making sure they are elite in the knowledge of their style, and we put them in a UFC style elimination tournament against each other. This tournament will have less rules than a normal UFC tournament, the only rules being " No weapons" and " No escaping from, or tossing other fighters out of, the octagon". The fighters would defeat their opponents in a normal MMA fashion. Now, the question is, which practitioners, with the training and conditioning they have, would defeat which other fighter? For example, let's say the first fight is Yoga vs. Tai Chi. Who would win? Also who would win the tournament?

    As a bonus, the fighters could be old and/or overweight.

        "Which video did the guy watch?"

        Hell, it probably should be one of those " You can be unbeatable just by watching" videos. Mcdojo videos.

          can we dose them all on acid so they can share the Ki balls and mass K.O. effects ?

          *edit* I am serious this effects the results of the matches greatly

            Well only 2 of those are even claiming to be martial arts, plus the video guy.

              All of those arts are , remotely, releated to fighting. Pilates was developed as an exercise system for soldiers. Jazzercise has some kickboxing in it. Tai Chi and Yoga are sometimes considered martial arts, with a huge emphasis on the art and healing. Some Yellow Bamboo guys want to summon strength.

                I'd like to see Phill Elmore in a fight to the death with a person who watched that tape.

                  My style focuses solely on how to throw large primates out of properly formed quadrilaterals and octagons. These rules will inhibit me should I decide to fight and I refuse to take that chance. Besides, these techniques may seriously fail in my attempt to kill someone, and Im a peacefull guy =)

                    This would be HILARIOUS!!! If we couldn't do it for real it would make a GREAT video script just for fun. Call it Bullshido FC or Bullshido Fighting Championship.

                      If they were all equally athletic, and actually good athletes, then I think I'd give it to the Karate guy or the Tai chi guy, as long as it was taichi taught in a "use this technique this way in a fight," not taichi dance.

                        Yeah, I'd pay money and skip work to see this. Hell, I would get a plane and fly to the event. I think I can afford Hooter's Air. I would have little ready cash, but that would be okay because I would not need to buy or change clothes. I would just wear the pants I'm wearing now, Vibrating Khakis. I am NEVER taking these of, and I'll kill any man that tries....
                        As for the fighters, I think the winner should have have the privilege of getting the shit beat out of him by all the real UFC Hall-of-Famers. At the same time. We could also have guys from the nearest MA school or fightclub to go over and beat up the losers and to help the Hall-of-Famers. I just hope those MA school guys practice Kendo. One can only hope.
                        As for the video script idea by Year Zero, I could write it.

                          Who said anything about Karate? Are you talking about the mcdojo guy? If you are, you should knowe that he is only a dancer. As for equally athletic, they would be. Most of them are old and fat. They should all be over 55, although if one guy's a wuss and under 55, we could make an exception.

                            We could also include Hsing and Pa Kua. They are similar to Tai-Chi and have some combat reference. Actualy, I heard that Pa Kua has alot of good foot work and palm heel strikes. Maybe we should leave that out.

                              Wrong. Pilates was not developed for soldiers and is not by any stretch of the imagination a fighting art. Jazzercize may have kicks in it similar to "aerobic kickboxing" but it isn't actually kickboxing and like pilates is not in any way a fighting art. Once again, yoga is not a martial art and is in no way a fighting art.

                              You must be really bored. I wonder what would happen if we took an elite rock climber, elite marathon runner, olympic swimmer, professional basketball player, and an olympic slalom skier and made them all fight each other in a MMA event. Your question makes about as much sense.

                              Oh, and the loser should get his or her ass kicked by Chuck Lidell and a bunch of local BJJ students. Why? For not being a martial artist. Never mind the fact that none of them ever claimed to be martial artists. The mere fact that they aren't makes them bullshidoka and deserving of a good ass kicking.
