    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

They delight in acting in bad faith, since they seek not to persuade by sound argument but to intimidate and disconcert. If you press them too closely, they will abruptly fall silent, loftily indicating by some phrase that the time for argument is past and that besides, they have already won

    LOL... I reject the premise... but here is a thought, clearly others missed it too, or they would not be commenting on it here. So I was not alone by any means.

    It was new to them, it was new to me. I am sure I lots of things that will be new to you , are old to me..... but thanks for sharing.

    As I said, it doesn't really matter.

    I wonder whether Mr Howard ever succeeded in bringing the Karate back into Jiu Jitsu?
    Nope, and here's his last fight to prove it:

We were all sure that any day, some 90-year-old Shaolin monk would hear about this U.F.C. and show up to magically fireball everyone to death. But even in our naivety, we took one look at Harold Howard and knew that this is a man who takes karate with 3rd graders; a man with a 0-and-35 record against local law enforcement and 7 no-contests against his wife.
    Victory, Comrade.

    Also, no love for Akibono vs. Gracie?

    What's wrong with that fight? It was a freakshow, but it certainly wasn't boring.
