    What the hell is Gong Sau?

    Apparently, people get up in arms over posting here and, it being a MA website, some of them actually fight. What is the deal with that?

    It's a perversion of the term gong sau, but for some reason people love to do it.

        Depends on the two people gong sauing each other. They decide on the rules they wish to fight each other on and then :qleft7:

            They should agree to a match with a referee, agreed upon rules, and general waivers of liability. They should also describe the event as sport, and have it take place in an appropriate venue like a martial arts school. Not out in public where the cops might be called. Bullshido does not sanction or supervise such matches, we only ask that people who want to fight, behave in a responsible manner.
