    So; no, he's not some undisciplined slob, he's an expert martial artist with a combination of physical disabilities that mean he can't help gaining weight. Any other questions?
    Interesting. According to my completely scientific speculation about one out of 1000 fat people that claim to have thyroid problems actually do.

    As an aside, I have pretty bad sciatic pain and it definitely affects my ability to maintain a healthy weight because there are a lot of exercises I can't do anymore and running is pretty much out of the question.


    As many have already noted, overweight is one thing. The gelatinous blobs with inflated ranks are entirely different.

          Sadly you are probably right. I mean you can tell his school is sub-par but it does state that he's a purple belt in BJJ and although his standup wasn't great, I have seen much worse.

          For some odd reason, there are some hot girls that go to that school - are all TX women like that?

                Yeah, that's entirely too heavy. I can just tell that without knowing what % bodyfat you are or how your conditioning is. If you're not careful you could end up like this poor slob.




                I mean this wretch was 280 lbs and only 5' 11". Damn those fat instructors.

                  I know a very heavy set Hapkido instructor (Dngruss1), who looks like Santa. I was at his 4th degree test. He was able to keep up with the 1st and 2nd degrees (of course I think he went through 3 uniforms) but he was not out of shape in the way the OP was describing.

                  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fy_7TB5mdro
                  Santa? Ouch.

                  And after all the years I have spent perfecting my surly and annoying demeanor. I prefer to think of myself as the Anti-Clause.

                  For the record, that was my 5th dan test, and I only went through one uniform jacket- it had absorbed so much sweat that it was standing on its own.

                  BTW- helpful safety tip- do not use thai boxing linament after you have been sweating profusely and opened up all your pores. It is extremely unpleasant.

                    Haha, I'd actually like to know what my bodyfat percentage is. It's not where I'd like it to be, but I suspect it's much lower than people would think after hearing 6'4" 275. After this weekend (NAGA: Arnolds) I'm going to just finally bit the bullet and decide to cut weight.

                      Just a tip I've found to help out at weigh in. I always set that box of doughnuts down before getting on the scales. (I hang on to the one in my hand though)

                        A martial arts instructor is not exactly a fitness instructor. They are a fighting instructor. Some examples:

                        Mas Oyama

                        Lynn Thompson (founder of Cold Steel)

                        Chris Sayoc

                        Guys from arts that don't emphasize slowly wearing down an opponent.
                        What bothers me more is martial arts instructors that spend a lot of time working out but don't develop their technique to a high level (granted, these ones are less common).

                          Of course there's always the problem of being so fat that you can't get through your door to go out and exercise. Kind of a vicious circle.

                          Kind of like when I blame my comfy bed for me being a lazy cunt.

                            But that fat fuck sure found a way to get himself some "boss" tattoos.

                                I think that just proved how easy it is to teach karate to little kids.
