    In Australia, you don't train for that. you are born in a headlock from your mother are taught to wrestle crocs when you are 2 weeks old. :D

    Difficult is my definition. I prefer to use two fingers for it but master says its wrong. I need to use ONE finger apparently. what do you reckon? I'm the new one to Hapkido here.

    From what I've heard about Australia kangaroos are the least of you're troubles. Supposedly they've got spiders that eat snakes, snakes that eat people, all sorts of nasty and crazy stuff.

    I would guess as long as you get in and tickle an eyeball, I don't suppose it would matter. But when you place you hand under the chin, which is the most common way we use it, with you fingers in the Spock prosper sign, two fingers just seem to naturally fit into each eye socket. All you have to do then is see how much eye matter you can collect under your fingernails. :yuck:

    Good luck. Although having progressed as far as you have, I doubt luck will play any part in it.

    Real Aussies don't need flamethrower. All we need is our bare fists.

    Oh you've got something more dangerous coming to Oz in November...my daughter! :DShe's small but fierce, excellent at MMA and kickboxing, strong as hell and even more sarcastic than me! She's going out for the Melbourne Cup and a couple of other races, her husband is flying to Oz tomorrow with the horses in a special plane no less, they travel better than humans and she joins him 1st Nov for a couple of weeks. She's the one who looks after the horses while they are in quarantine before they fly. The Aussies have stringent quarantine rules.

    My son in law was out there last year as well and took a photo of a huge spider he saw ( doesn't like spiders much) and they were worried about snakes as horses have an instinctive fear of them.

    I was willing to visit Oz and risk the killer spiders, snakes, jellyfish, drop bears, and other natural hazards, but Tez offspring? Sounds like it's getting just a little too hazardous.

    katie tug of war.jpg MT pic.jpg

    My daughter in the tug of war team ( they won) and her husband in the suit. The jockey is William Buick, he was racing in Chicago a few weeks ago and had a bad fall, three broken vertebra but he's fine now and on the mend though not racing just yet.

    A better pic of my daughter. It's that look lol.

    I disagree. She will fit right in! She sounds capable of defending herself from a Cassowary. Tez, does she have any experience wrangling crocs?

    My daughter has come off a few times, on her own horses, only broke her arm. The worst was getting slammed against the side of a box when a racehorse had tangled his headcollar while tied up, she had to be taken to hospital with a badly brushed arm and side. Another time one of the stalls handlers had to hoick her out when the horse started bucking.
