    First written line of the post before you got to the video link "This Hapkido is from Finland' so if you read the post before you watched the video.........................

    So people from Finland can't speak English? I said it appeared to be the language of the school.

    Ah! Come on, give it up. You, as anyone, is entitled to your opinion. But your comment about "practical" was rather nitpicky don't you think.

    Now if you saw great problems in technique that you could articulate, that would be worth commenting on.

    No, I don't think it was nitpicky. If I started a forum and called it "Smart Forum" it would imply that other forums are dumb, or the people on them are dumb. If I started a store called Low Price Groceries, it would imply that we have lower prices than other grocery stores. To say "practical hapkido" is to say that other hapkido is not practical. Which either means you're insulting the other hapkido schools by saying they fail at the one thing hapkido does, or you just don't understand what hapkido is.

    For crying out loud, what do you think it says about this site when people are arguing over what they think the word practical means.
    I read practical Hapkido and didn't assume anything at all about, it's not insulting unless you are determined to be insulted.

    Yes, a lot of people in Scandinavian speak English, in fact most of Europe speaks English as a second/third/fourth language, it's a pity that native speakers of American English can't actually understand what the words 'polite' and 'welcoming' mean.

    If the OP doesn't come back I can entirely understand, I can also understand if he thinks there's too many pillocks who would probably shout the English words at him very slowly if they were talking in person to him.

    I didn't disagree that the line was there. I disagreed on your assumptions based on that line being there. By the way, you know you can tell who agreed and disagreed with your post? For one, it says in the alert "Skribs disagreed with your post." For another, you can click "list" next to where it says "disagree" on your post, and it will list the users who disagreed with it.

    Or did you know that and you were passive-aggressively targeting me?

    When I saw the title Practical Hapkido, I realized it could be misunderstood that way, but I did not think the was the meaning the OP meant. Because I think Hapkido is indeed a very practical art. I don't think it is the only one, but if I didn't think it was way up on the scale of practical arts, I wouldn't have stayed with it long enough to be a 2nd Dan.

    And after watching the video, I saw some things that were variants of techniques I had learned, that I want to add to my toolbox. They were 'practical.'

    But interesting to know how you think anyway.

    Oooooo mansplaining! Newbie, guess what, I know already.


    Hell, there is never anything passive about me, no one can ever accuse me of that.
    Your disagreement is nonsense of course, the line is there you didn't read it and had a wibble.

    Or, and bear with me here, I read it, and came to the same conclusion I've been parroting in the last several posts!

    How am I "mansplaining"? I thought that was when a man explains something to a woman because they think women are too stupid to understand something, regardless of the woman's knowledge. Someone who "mansplains" usually bases this on gender, and usually does so without even checking what the woman's knowledge of the subject is.

    Are you a woman? If you are, I didn't know, so the gender component isn't there.

    Did I make an assumption? Yes. I made the assumption that either you didn't know how to find out who disagreed, or that you were being passive aggressive, because YOUR POST SUGGESTED YOU DIDN'T KNOW AND THOSE WERE THE ONLY CONCLUSIONS I COULD DRAW FROM IT.

    Sorry. I'm not trying to yell. It's just that you acted like you didn't know something and are now jumping down my throat for explaining it, so I had to make it clear why I was making that assumption.

    But, yes. Keep posting funny pictures and make witty comments about websites I should go to. That's going to convince me that I'm wrong.

    Hey, Tez3, you're painting with a broad brush again. :(

    I struggle with English these days, but in my life I have learned and spoken 3 different non-English languages. I knew the words polite and welcome in those languages.

    Actually, the more I think of it, maybe I don't know what those words mean in English. I have become sort of cantankerous as I have aged. :) :)

    Why must it be “mansplaining”?

    I was wondering why this thread was going south. Then I saw the word mansplaining and saw the show ignored content button.

    The usual lol.

    Because it takes the credibility out of explaining without having to actually adress the point.

    So here is a ten part explaination as to why you are full of crap.

    I find your argument invalid because you were mansplaining.
