How in the blue hell did i miss all of this?
DarkPhoton...with respect......lighten up, wisen up, grow up.
You're still relatively new to these boards and considering some of the experience and knowledge of some of the folk on these boards your arrogance is held in contempt.
If i was to rant on like you in this board i'd be cautious of what people like wtf? post, seeing as imho he's probably the most knowledgeable on this particular subject. Even though he's an uggh uggh doorman and far younger than me, he could argue that black is white, but he still knows his stuff. Darksun uses big words 8) but there's hardly another user on this forum that has his depth of understanding in these matters.
I've personally studied MA's for over 20 years and, street combat, soft and hard MA's etc blah blah. So have many others.
This forum is not overpopulated by youngsters with movie style imaginations. So you're out on a limb mate.
Or......maybe your english isn't just what it should be and we're misreading your points.
Making dumb statements and not fully explaining yourself is bound to attract a few flames.
Advancing to take a punch is nuts, unless your timing is absolutely split-second spot on.
I've personally completed a full kickboxing class with a broken wrist (unbeknown to me at the time), adrenalin etc. Breaking the wrist of someone who is willing to fight will just fuel their rage.
Dude, you have think about how you explain yourself. I don't doubt that you have something to offer this topic. Don't take anything personally, just contribute in a more logical less fantasy-filled way.
One more point, what you've said so far, is in my experience, typical of karate trained people. They somehow think that their art transcends all. I'm not saying you think that, but its funny how your opinions mirror loads of karateka that i know.
Just an observation.
