Why do TMAers hate on MMA? (stereotypes you've heard about combat sports)

    Fuck Star Wars. There I said it.

    If Episode VII is nothing but 105 minutes of the Empire killing Jar Jar, it will be a cinematic triumph.

    Suddenly and very, very quickly, as it turns out.

    You know....I feel you brah, but Jar Jar is partly responsible for the destruction of an interplanetary government. He's far more dangerous than he seems, it's too bad nobody realized that until it was too late.

    Because he was so dangerous, I really believe Jar Jar was executed by the Emperor right after Episode III. They'll probably go into that in Episode VII, bringing a lot of SW fans closure.

    MMA vs TMA really is like Kirk vs. Picard, on one hand you have the brash but effective commander with a love for alien women, fisticuffs, and Romulan ale, and the other a hardcore but sophisticated war tactician, with a preference for French wine.

    Choosing one is impossible, for me.
    I'd say more like Sisko vs. Jar Jar Binks.

    Fair enough, there are a lot more politics in Shotokan or any other popular Japanese or Okinawan style than in koryu. Part of the reason guys like Nishikawa split off is that they had strong ideas about what Shotokan should be that differed from the others. But if you got the heads of the various federations together I bet they could agree pretty broadly on many points and also about what it is not. After all, what is the point of practicing a particular ryu if you are going to be open to every technique and training method out there?
    It's a good question. I suppose it depends on what you've decided Shotokan is to begin with.

    I literally teach punching into the clinch and kicking into a body lock. It's part of the Gracie Basics. This idea is a corner stone of Gracie Jiu Jitsu. 2:39 the clinch stuff starts. This is beginners stuff.https://youtu.be/Aeg926nPCGQ

    That's not true. I choke people out at work for taking the last cup of coffee without making more. Shit works great. It's well known that if you drink the Last cup of joe...... you make some moe.
