So am I.
Congratulations. Perhaps you could tell us something about yourself, and your journey.
I'm looking right at your name on the screen and it says White Belt right there. You trying to pull a fast one?
Mine only cost 99 cents, how much did you pay for yours?
YES, i want my giant life - like karate practice dummy and book for only $1.98.!!!!
Welcome to MartialTalk, Brmty2002.
What kind of Martial Art do you train?
Have a few black belts. One is a very nice leather belt I seldom use. Only for dress up.
One is rather beat up leather I've used for years. It is a single hand release and makes an excellent flexible weapon. Mostly I use a synthetic webbed tactical black belt because of the toys I often carry.
A different belt for different occasions
And then, of course....
Quite dashing with the pink, no?
For some people reason, the second to last paragraph in that ad is very similar to a bunch of "all natural male enhancement" products. I guess it's the confidence thing.
Yeah sure you are...this thread sounds so believable
I almost bought some suspenders last fall. That was when I realized that I was beyond being like my dad and I was dressing like my grandfather
I want to see what that karate practice dummy looks like in real life.
I was thinking the same thing. I don't think it would be a Century BOB. Maybe a picture, like those target practice ones.
If its a picture on a full sized dummy, thats still worth the 99 cents. If it breaks apart, im sure i can find some use for it.
I train in Karate, GKR to be specific where I earned my first dan black belt. However, I am a new member on this site where it says that I am a white belt.
I also train in Taekwondo, and Hapkido where I have only just started out.
I look forward to meeting you all,
Although some have their doubts, I know the truth, and I intend to uphold it.
as people say, haters gonna hate.
I think what prompted us to have a bit of fun with this thread is that we're not too hung up on belts and ranks here. In other words, very few of us care about rank. We're mostly mature adults who train because we love it, not because we love rank.
You walked in and more or less said "I'm a black belt, are you?" and left it at that. What did you think was going to happen? Did you think that was going to give you instant street credibility?
I had a black belt 15 years ago. Had to stop training. Now I'm back and started all over again just over two years ago. Doesn't make me a better person nor worse person. Doesn't make me a better or worse karateka than anyone else.
^^^^^ this and there are many here who are BB level and above in multiple arts. As stated here that doesn't make us any better a person or martial artist than someone else...Just someone who has multiple BBs.
