    Ok this is weird.

    Who cares? I am nit picking you anyway. At what point would my opinion of you deter you from doing this?

    Like you would loose all this credibility or something.

    As I've said before, I simply don't have the inclination to dig around through thousands of posts. I have no idea how I'd manage such a search, other than literally re-reading every thread you've posted in for the past year.

    If you really think you haven't done that, then you're not self-aware enough to learn from me finding the posts, anyway. Past experience suggests you'd likely just "nope" it away, anyhow.

    It's more a matter of it not being worth the effort. Anything he posts, unless it's video of him (or, perhaps, a confirmed Hapkido-only practitioner) using it against an attacker, or someone you approve of using it (read: MMA for the most part), you're just going to dismiss it. Like you did with the several videos I posted showing that big, looping single punches actually happen in the wild.

    For one, this is a Hapkido thread, and I train Hapkido. For another, you have personally gone after me in the past.

    I wouldnt take it as personal, as I thought the same a little while ago, its just DB way, its a syndrome, a lot of ma do, in DB mind, his art, his training, his opinion, is the best and only way, I'm probably sure he used to train in WWF, before it acknowledged it was staged for entertainment, I am sure he takes his vitamins, and rips his T shirt off, whilst shouting "WHAT YA GONNA DO", just before class starts.

    Your analogy’s does not hold water. Astrology works because every question/situation has multiple ‘correct’ outcomes. It is never fully wrong or right. Does this fit your argument?

    What is it you want a video of anyway?
