What's a wanker? That doesn't sound nice. Do wankers fight well? Have you ever fought a wanker?
Kung Fu huh?
I know a good amount of cma guys, of various styles. Not one of them labels what they do 'kung fu', at least not without prefacing it with the proper name, and generally only when talking to laymen.
You know who calls it 'kung fu'? (Rather than say, hung gar, Wing Chun, Choi li fut, etc etc)
Guys that don't do Kung Fu.
Nooooooo!!! Don't go! You have been, without exception, the most entertaining poster we have had in a while. Come on, man. Just one more post. For old times.
As a WC guy I couldn't agree more. I would say, due to my own testing and training, that the issue here is more a matter of how it is trained than what is being trained.
I use my WC to spar MMA guys almost every single day, it's just not your garden variety.
More like putting a 450 big block engine in a Subaru.
I do not believe anyone ever made such an engine...
Didn't Chevy puy a 454 big block in the Camaro?
Ehh. Fine a 454.
Sure did, but only (if memory serves) in some of the 2nd Gen F bodies. And in lots of other things. But that isn't what he said.
I can't think of any combination of bore/stroke that would let you build a 450ci big block without resorting to custom one-off parts for the rotating assembly.
If you went the custom parts route, you could bore/stroke a 427 block, but it wouldn't rev very high - and big block Chevy engines already don't like high RPM. You could also de-stroke a 454 a tiny bit to get a 450, but there wouldn't be any advantage to doing so.
Just LS swap the Subaru... LS swaps fix everything.
If you fight a wanker, just watch out for that one arm that's much stronger than the other
Wanking is sex with someone you love.
That was Nick Nolte in peacefull warrior.
Aaaah! You made creepy spider girl show up!
I’ve played it during class warm-ups before. The Hobbit was not amused.
Now who’s picking nits??
I would decide based on your visits and first trial classes of the dojos near you. Someone here may suggest one of the arts you listed like TKD but their experience of it could be completely different from the experience you would have at the dojo where you live. Good luck and welcome back to MA.
Me. I'm a big fan of precision.
As am I..almost obsessively. And not just in martial arts...
Oh yeah? Well...I studied under Grandmaster Li, he was 43 times all world champion of old Mongolia, and he could kill with a thought. He showed me, he demonstrsted the technique on me, in front of an audience of 8739473794876. They all saw it and they all assured me that they would sign an affidavit attesting to what they witnessed.
He taught me the method and I’ve used it 97 times over the course of 143 years. It has saved my life twice, so I swear by it.
I had that impression, which is a large part of why I had to poke you for the "450 big block" thing.
