    But thats the problem ...These idiots are going around thinking that they can fight. They tend to believe that what they do is the next step in the evolution of Martial arts.

    Take out the sword and give them a fucking baton - it's not martial arts and has nothing to do with martial arts.

    The problem is they're doing crap like this with a sword. Sure, it's a non-sharp sword, but they're encouraging people to do stupid **** like this with a real one, which is ludicrously dangerous. And it's a 15 year old teaching, which is just going to encourage more kids to try **** like this at home. I'm all for darwinism, but even I realize that this trash caters to those who don't know any better and who aren't necessarily stupid.

    does the xma consider juggling to be martial arts? b/c i have a semi-pro friend who would gg the competition. i'll just have him juggle nunchucks and call it "the legendary 9th dan, soke, toyota, ninja master, kobayashi nunchauku form." tape it, package it, and sell millions of copies.

    if you can avoid hitting yourself in the face the nunchuck juggling would fit right in with the XMA

    I can do 15 hula hoops at the same time. (Three are a little pornagraphic though)
    That doesn't make it a martial art. I can't understand how this stuff gets lumped in with martial arts instead of circus tricks.

    For some reason, I thought of this: http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fu...eoID=661745882

    (sorry, can't find a better vid). It's about as realistic.

    As for XMA boy, well, he likes gymnastics, holding swords, and dressing up in fetish outfits. Is that so wrong? (Well...)
