    So, learning the right style and the correct way to perform them doesn't matter as long as you're being nice to people???

      Technically you said it was technically better.

        I was criticizing the people at the school I went to not the art as a whole, and don't get me wrong I'm not back-pedaling, I still firmly believe that SD is an excellent martial art and is great for self defense. Also, the forms are not my favorite but I put up with them because they do do a lot to help with coordination and fitness. My personal focus is sparring and take it extremely seriously. I welcome as much contact as I can get. And as a response to the statement that I got my "ass handed to me", the instructors actually would compliment me on my progress. I am not saying I did not get beat because I did as a was admittedly a complete noob, but I could hold my own in most situations. I am not one to quit something simply because I lose a couple of times. I'm a competitive person and losing just inspires me to get better.

          Dude, you probably "held your own" because your training partners knew you were a noob so they held back. Give MMA another chance. If you didn't like the atmosphere at that school, find a another. Hell find two if you have to. Judo and Boxing ftw!

            Liar, you added the MMA vs people at that school dichotomy after posting this:

The reason why the mma didn't work out was because everyone at the gym was a sloppy arrogant jerk and I felt it was way too expensive for what I was being taught which wasn't much at all. The reason I went to SD was because it makes you a better technical fighter than mma does. The largest problem I have with mma is that it is mostly about outmuscleing an opponent instead of focusing on having a better technique. And the school tended to have less self-righteous douchebags who weren't nearly as good as they thought they were.

            ..not that i'm giving you a pass to criticize the other students.

                  This is a backpedal. You were being insulting and now you are changing what you meant.

                  I still firmly believe that SD is an excellent martial art and is great for self defense. Also, the forms are not my favorite but I put up with them because they do do a lot to help with coordination and fitness.
                  Irrelevant to your backpedaling. Nice try shifting the focus. I told you to enjoy what you do. This started because you ASSUMED no one practiced your art.

                  My personal focus is sparring and take it extremely seriously.
                  If it really was you wouldn't be trying to defend SD 5-10 minute sparring.

                  I welcome as much contact as I can get.
                  No, you don't. The contact at the CSCs is not enough.

                  And as a response to the statement that I got my "ass handed to me", the instructors actually would compliment me on my progress. I am not saying I did not get beat because I did as a was admittedly a complete noob, but I could hold my own in most situations.
                  Thanks, this tells me why your experience turned bad IMO. Most beginners that "hold their own" have a no clue cockiness that permeates their character. Student retention always starts with "fuck you suck, Blue Belt beat this guys ass."/sarcasm You did NOTHING to change my opinion about "ass beating," you actually reinforced my assumption.

                  I am not one to quit something simply because I lose a couple of times.
                  Interesting, I never said ANYTHING about you quitting. I implied you were disgusted because you got your ass handed to you.

                  I'm a competitive person and losing just inspires me to get better.
                  So, you leave a competition school, go to a dead art with lower contact and engage in less sparring. Excuse me while I ignore your contradictions.

                    You must have a crush on W. Rabbit, don't you? Go do some pushups or something.
                    Love those clips Mr. Rabbit.

                    And while I've picked up some rep (thanks) I'm sure that the OP will ignore my post. It would be too easy to do, but so hard to eat one's words, take the foot out of the mouth, pop the ego balloon, or whatever the hell he's doing his damndest to avoid.

                    Hey dalmoe, click on the link below and I'll bet if you respond you'll justify like an alky does hitting the bottle, reasons why you'll ignore a free workout. But DUDE!!! Please try to stop arguing with IIF and Rabbit and such. You are not going to win here. If you can manage to shut up, maybe, just maybe you can take the time to cross train. And I'd wager $100 that if you do cross train you will be soon saying the same stuff IFF and others are trying to get through your skull.

                    and having worked out with the Pedro Sauer lineage school Westside BJJ (Ogden and Logan), if they are any indication of the quality and ethics of BJJ in Utah, then there is no reason to avoid 'em. Their motto is Leave The Ego At The Door, totally friendly, no chip on shoulder or any other bullshit, nice people who work out hard.
