    Permissible questions

    I get frustrated when I ask a question but instead of getting answers to that question I get whole bunch of other unrelated advice and when I try to clarify the question there are complaints that it's my fault for not wording it right. I've given up asking questions that I actually want answers...

    MMA would never work in a real fight.

    Okay well it seems there is still a little confusion as to just exactly what a "real" fight is. A "real" fight is to the Death.

    Trianing for Sparring

    I like the front kick straight into the abdomen, there is a reason not many people use the front kick, it feels weak, well it actually is weak until you have trained it enough but when you have you should be able to kick the stuffing out of someone with it which will give a few milliseconds to...

    Parental Dilemma: Spy or Not To Spy on Your Kid(s)

    I learnt from a very young age to keep everything a secret from my parents not just naughty things I did but everything, hopes, dreams, things that made me happy...everything. It didn't matter what it was sooner or later my folks would find a way to use it against me even if it was just for a...

    MMA would never work in a real fight.

    Okay then, how about any fight against an opponent intent on causing physical harm and not within the confines of an MMA competition or sparring session.

    Bowing. in and out of...Everywhere?!

    The old standard of not wearing a hat inside and more critically at the dinner table I feel has become outdated with the advent of indoor camera surveillance. If it's rude to wear your hat inside or at the table then how rude is it to have a camera there? As a general rule of thumb these days...

    MMA would never work in a real fight.

    This is actually a good topic for discussion but if I am to contribute it is not in the For but rather the Against. I do not believe MMA is no good for real fighting, there may be some bad habits that come from training with sports motivation and training techniques which can be exploited but...

    Dangerous habits

    Yep that's my question in one. I've done my best to clear the air with Tez and Buka was unfortunately caught up in the middle of something through no fault of his own for which I have also apologised about. Since I have the utmost respect for Sensei Parker, I apologise for getting upset with...

    I seem to get in trouble for asking the wrong questions, so this is a place for you to all sit down and have a think about what you want me to ask.

    Something stupid

    I am a beginner and... The cat sat on the mat. There you go, I said something stupid. Now those that are that way inclined would you please take it out on me here, that's what this thread is for. It might free up a little space in the actual martial arts related sub-forums.

    Dangerous habits

    I am not surprised to have got on your bad side Buka. You just happened along at the wrong time with the wrong question when I was all out of patience. My apologies if it appeared I was curt with you it was not my intention. I can fix this, few seem to want to answer intelligent questions so...

    I will apologise for pulling him up for lying if you show me where I said this: In the meantime I am not even asking for an apology from him I just want him to leave me alone. This is not the first time he has lied about what I have said but I do hope it will be the last. Not sure what you...

    Dangerous habits

    I didn't specify any specific encounter or I would have specified a specific encounter. How about you assume I meant....any encounter "without the rules for protection". To that end you've given two sample encounters the second of which includes a pretty good answer to my very open ended...

    Dangerous habits

    If you are not here to discuss the question and only interested in picking apart my use of the English language I have no interest in continuing any form of dialogue with you. If I want English lessons I'll visit a languages forum. Seem to be? I asked no such thing, exactly when did I refer to...

    Dangerous habits

    Definitely not but even if you were to, I am sure you have a lot to pass on. I certainly don't know everything and when it comes to MMA I know very little that's why I came here to ask the experts what they(you) think. I imagine it is something you have thought about before since everyone likes...

    Dangerous habits

    To be honest I assumed you never bothered to read my post when you commented on dropping the guard as a bad habit. Then you did read my post and did understand my question but still threw in a completely unrelated comment about not turning your back. I could have taken offense to receiving such...

    Dangerous habits

    Tez has no interest in answering my question and you along with a bunch of other people did understand it at least enough to respond intelligently so I don't know why you would take offense to my comment but my apologies if you did.

    Dangerous habits

    I do have issue with rewording the same question ten times though, it feels like baby sitting which is okay if I'm in the mood but more importantly it just feels like my chain is being jerked when intelligent people pretend they don't know what I'm talking about. There is nothing wrong with...

    Dangerous habits

    Which common place techniques facilitated by the protection the Rules offer lend themselves to becoming quite deadly without the Rules for protection? For example sitting down in front of a person and hugging his leg seems like a pretty crazy move that would more than likely result in a knee in...

    Green Beret Impersonator Gets 21 Months

    Not sure what it's like in the States but in Australia virtually nobody carries out a full background check. I am cleared for just about everywhere. I have worked in some of the most secure environments you can imagine. Government Data Centres, Airforce Air Traffic Control Towers, Military...
