    He/she will resurface with another bogus name and thread, hopping from one subject to another anytime anyone asks him/her meaningful questions about his posts. .

    If you guys like, I could take his place. "General Choi's momma dressed him funny! A ridgehand is basically like a head butt, only with less head and more butt! Octagons are for sissy-boys...real mean fight in decagons! I saw a video once of a guy who won a street fight and he trained primarily in jump rope...jump rope is gonna rule the MMA. Some guy insulted my girl at the club while I was drunk so I tried to roundhouse him and it failed -- I BLAME TAEKWONDO!!!!"

    Axiom, you can't just take over someone elses account because you got banned. You may be claiming to be truejim but I know the truth...

    Just for the record, decagons are far to close to circles, and octagons look too much like hexagons (which we all know are overachieving sqares). The only legitimate fighting shape is a nonagon. Here are some reasons why:

    I think we should just fight in a Zorb

    Man, even us aikido folks will have to start working more on our circles!

    Gives this book a whole new perspective: Aikido and the Dynamic Sphere

    Seems like the perfect format to demonstrate the superiority of BJJ. No need to close the distance and force a takedown. No need to worry about evasive strikers. I like it!

    And any surface can quickly become "the ground". You could base out above you, and there would be a whole new area of "sweeps" to work on.

    Yes, but any time your in mount, if the weight shifts even suddenly you're now in open guard. Keeping a good position would be impossible.

    I see you're already training the new sweeps.

    My question is, would my mat burns get worse, or would the zorb save me from them?

    No Korean martial art has elements to deal with the Kenyan charging rhino kick. The footwork mandated by controlling bodies of all Korean martial arts is insufficient to deter an attacking Kenyan trained in the pre-historic arts unearthed by Dr. Leakey.
