I bet on Chung Lee. Lost some cash last time. Hopefully this time he’ll get his revenge.
My money's on boyka lol
No. I’m taking bets on MA student v. Dux
MA student +160
I can't believe I read this entire thread.
<wanders off to get more popcorn>
We need a popcorn-eating smiley
I like the gifs
So, a young guy that actually trains in combative martial arts vs an old man that doesn't.
How you got the latter as favourite?
Well....What do we actually know about MA Student.......
For the most part we have:
I thought the odds were pretty fair.
Well.... MA Student is pretty pointy
My GIF-fu skills are weak. I tried to use a gif but couldn't get it to work.
Don't feel bad. I read a few pages until I realized the guy was saying that he was "Dux" not Drax!
I don't think CB Jones brought enough popcorn....
Oh man, this one is classic...or at least it is to my somewhat demented old mind..... it just seems to be perfect
He’s going to need A LOT more soda than that.
Nope you are locked in.
(bloodsport would have been too obvious.)
You know, i think we scared Dux away. Too bad, he was fun to talk to.
No offense taken now... and here I thought the challenge would also have "a purse"... Bob Wall challenged me for $4million according to Martial Art Sport Museum curator Gary Lee. I considered until I found out I could be charged with senior abuse. Skillful trap avoided.
FACT vs. FICTION
First off you cant arbitrarily declare a 100 man Kumite is not a tournament when a tournament is defined as a contest between multiple competitors.
Your framework of understanding is seemingly based upon an erroneous assumption. Yes, while some Karateka who view a 100 man Kumite as a test of endurance it nonetheless can be and is under Society of Black Dragon utilized in the Asian cultural traditional manner. Multiple people are in competition with each other in attempting the same feat (i.e. fighting and defeating 100 or 60 combatants).
Each competitor is measuring their performance vs the next person facing the same challenge. The 56 man knockouts argument you propose is done according to western cultural tournament interpretation which is rules of single elimination. This round-robin jousting format is not true in the case for all Kumites.
Each fighter has 60 opponents to fight. Scores are tallied by wins vs defeats by which to determine the final winner. Some participants cannot complete the sixty fight requirement and thus are eliminated. Some fight the sixty bouts but lose more matches compared to another competitor doing likewise. These tournaments can be held and conclude over a period of one day or up to 18 months. I hope this dispels the assumptions and faulty conclusion.
Ok......Let's Do This!!!
The blonde mamba… that your boy CB Jones?
Yeah....he is my youngest knucklehead.
