    Few days ago went to martial arts reunion. We ate at a few restaurants. As someone who grew up in a small redneck town, you don't see many asian restaurants. We ate at a few within the few days we were at the reunion. Looking at the menu was downright scary. I felt more confused than an old...

    Was helping a friend clean his attic. Saw this weird looking box thingy. The heck is this mess? His dad recognized it as an eight track tape! Even let me keep it! I have no use for it as I have nothing to play it on, but hot damn! I own an ancient artifact now. From some lost forgotten...

    I've been hit by the blue shell more than a few times so I know the feeling. It's funny when you cross the finish line then get hit with the blue shell anyways.

    I doubt this is the racing game your looking for, but my favorite racing game is Mario Kart 8. I enjoy the game cause it's a pretty simple game. Even my mom will join in. It's always fun to play with friends/family.

    Elite female judo vs untrained male

    If somebody told me they were an 'elite judo fighter', I'd assume they were exaggerating. Is that slang for black belt? I can't imagine a black belt calling themselves 'Elite'. That sounds like something an orange belt who joined martial arts four months ago, regularly watches UFC/kung fu...

    Is getting hit to the head over and over can be dangerous?

    I don't know anyone who got a concussion in martial arts but back in highschool someone in my class got three concussions(throughout the course of 5 years). After the third they wouldn't let him play football anymore, and he mostly just gave out water and stuff his senior year. On the surface...

    "Money buys Freedom but not always happiness?"

    Money buys my happiness. I pay bills and have loved the air conditioner throughout summer so far. The hole in my wallet leaves a sour taste in my mouth but the pros outweigh the cons. Money covers monthly martial arts fees. Happy times indeed. Buying weapons for martial arts never fails to put...

    I kinda like Turkey bacon. It lacks the crunch you get in pork bacon but I've bought and cooked Turkey bacon and didn't regret it. A lot less greace too meaning I don't get popped as much! I've also noticed Turkey bacon doesn't shrivel up as much. Maple turkey bacon is A-okay! :D

    Martial Arts Pet Peeves

    Immature was a poor choice of words. On average in my limited experience, they weren't too difficult to teach, but some students were trickier. Based on your post you sound like your really good at teaching kids. I have no clue what to tell a kid that doesn't want to be there. The...

    How hard is it to become proficient in weapons based martial arts compared to physical fighting ones?

    I've learned multiple weapon forms around the same time. Though in order to do that I did a ton of practice in my spare time. Personally I recommend focusing on one weapon at a time unless you just have so much free time your willing to spend training. Dirty dog gave a great response. The way...

    So our Facebook post blew up in to a massive troll fest.

    Comments like that are no fun. Looked good to me, I wish her luck in her future fights.

    How hard is it to become proficient in weapons based martial arts compared to physical fighting ones?

    Your question is a bit oooodd... weapons vd 'physical' fighting? I don't understand that... If I hit someone with a rokushakubo, I'm hitting them with 'physical' blunt force. This ain't no chi strike flowing through my weapon. But I digress... As someone who has experience in both empty hands...

    One punch and knock your opponent out

    I cant comment on grappling. I don't practice grappling arts. Not enough experience... Being able to one punch knock out doesn't mean too much if you can't land a hit. Means even less if your opponent catches your arm and hyper extendeds it... It seems kinda silly to rely on one thing, even if...

    I've always enjoyed doing it. I'm working on a new bo form, shushi no dai(I think that's the correct spelling). I helped some students with kumite. Overall fun class today.

    Chinese martial arts forms... Where are your openings at?!?! When I do my Goju Ryu forms, I know I'm ready cause I did my little opening... I don't have that mental preparation for some of these chinese forms. I just st-start the form, right now? Like riiiight now right now? Oooh... Here goes...

    (Fiction/theory) Fighting against the perfect sword

    You don't need a sword that can cut through anything. A sword that can cut through the arm or hand of the person holding the 'all powerful sword' will suffice. Avoid their attack, and strike the hand/arm holding the sword. If they drop the sword, now you can get their sword.

    Today was a good day at class. We got most of shushi no dai finished. It's a neat form. I like this one technique in the form where you fake a strike, and then strike with the other end of the bo.
