But please don't "vent" on the internet over the innanities of show/book series I liked. I'm already painfully aware of them.
    I did I choked some aikido guy who was like a foot taller and outweighed me by 50 lbs. They said it if was the street he would have bit me while I was choking him. :jerkit2yf

From what Im reading on this thread you guys seem actually intimidated That a FICTIONAL girl can fight in a FICTIONAL fighting style that resembles a inefectual real world art. Dont blink at the fact there are vamipres and demons and who gives a fuck that the main male character can hurl magical chi fireballs, But OMFG A FEMALE IMAGINARY CHARACTER CAN FIGHT. What the fuck next voting rights?

        GET A FUCKING LIFE.

        its not just us chunners that are deluded. :ohyeah: :blob1: :jerkit2yf :XXjester:
        How about you learn to write properly - punctuation, capital letters and syntax - before you post anything else? Thank you, chardin, for understanding the point I was trying to make, and explaining it much better than I can.

        kultist, it's funny you mentioned that phrase. Through every creative writing course I took in college, that was one point EVERY professor emphasized. It's been a while since I've heard it.

          ZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!
          "So, yeah, Zen teachers may well insult you, work you to the bone, hit you with sticks, shout verbal abuse at you, and punch the shit out of you.
          And when the shit's been punched out of you, you might just find that you're far better-off without it." - Vieux Normand

          "So in short, BJJ wins again. BJJ, and chainmail." - TheMightyMcClaw

          "Needless to say, it's much easier to clear a bunch of drunk kids out of your house when you're yelling GTFO and carrying a samurai sword." - DerAuslander

          "Eventually, I realized it doesn't matter what art you train, what matters is the method in which you train. Training in an alive manner, under skilled and qualified instruction, is the single most important aspect of gaining martial skill. All else is window dressing." - JNP : Saying it how it is!

            Blame Laurell Hamilton.

            For everything really. Anita Blake is responsible for plague, famine, middle eastern strife, and the sub prime mortgage crisis.

                  I can suspend disbelief for vampires, demons, wizards, etc. but successfully executed wrist-throws really hamper the verisimilitude.

                    sad but true... i perfectly enjoy and immerse myself in the world of the dresdenverse as he fights fucking fallen angels, but the minute she wristlocks hendricks, i get jarred. it's kinda awkward.

                      Did you fucking destroy whoever said that to your face? If not you are just part of the PROBLEM man.

                        I bet it wouldn't jarr you if that character could do it because she was blessed with superhuman reflexes. It's the whole impossible/improbable thing.

                          I had already sparred with one of their bigger better guys. They made excuses saying he could have done this or that. I told him aikido was for dudes who aren't scottish and aren't gay buy still like to wear dresses and hold hands.

                            Yeah that makes sense, lets show how effective combat systems work to people by putting them in triangles while we elbow them in the face.

                            Yeah that'll make the other person think "hmm... I feel enlightened, I'm gonna go do a functional art now".
