no. i live in a platonic hyperdimensional plane of immanent consent violation.

here's the deal: under 9 circumstances out of 10, a proficient grappler isn't gonna give a striker a chance to do his shit. he's gonna be on that fucker like flies on shit and twist him into a pretzel before he can say 'what is the sound of one hand clapping'. watch your gracie videos, bro. WATCH THEM.


See that the problem with you. You accept MMA rules.

To understand the best fighting style, you shouldn’t do that.

Dude, I was trained very well... my Sifu was given a black sash from van cleef....

I came from a badass school of Kung fu...

Here’s the deal:

Eyes, throat, groin.

That’s the mantra of Kung fu artists.

What’s illegal in MMA ??

Eyes, throat, groin.

watch him work, captain underpants. look closely. those dude don't have time to do anything. that's the portuguese python... the brazilian boa. you can't get nuthin in on that dude, man, i'm tellin ya. try to punch him you want to. end up eating a mattress sandwich.



yeah but you gotta remember: if fish hooking and eye gouging and all that shit were legal, royce would do it too. look at how many opportunities he had to do that shit, and would've, if it weren't against the rules.

lol i've seen matches where royce didn't even bother punching the guy because he thought it was tasteless and rude. didn't need to. the guy was finished.

You don’t need to preach to me about Royce, he has 100 times to snap shamrocks neck and didn’t do it.

Here’s the deal though...

Professional strikers don’t need a submission holds to kill the opponent.

the wing-chun dude in black at 3:14 presented the biggest problem. if those strikes were more solid and better aimed - which is extremely difficult - he might'a significantly weakened royce or even knocked him out. but this is a gamble for a striker. one, you exhaust yourself with those power punches. second, you rarely get a second chance. third, you make a small window of opportunity for your opponent after you swing. royce dodges, then shoots at that opening.

lol i remember watching that very fight at a party when i was 21 (i think). everybody in the room was psyched and wanted to fight. it was funny as hell. like what happens when you watch a rocky movie. you're almost on top of the TV shouting 'hit em, hit em!'

I get it.

See here’s the deal. Do you really think the best go to UFC? There’s dudes that can punch their pinky’s through a pinky sized hole at full speed and hit for 500 pounds. You seem to assume ufc has the best, that’s not true.

I’m going to explain this to you very simply:

There’s 1.2 billion people in China. Think about that for a moment.

Most Kung fu schools teach you not to fight, that’s a tradition that’s eastern and not western.

Do you really think UFC has the best in the world?

Jiu jitsu is fun. Renzo Gracie gym right by me.

Even nothing, is something.
If one is to live balanced with expectations, then one must learn to appreciate the negative as well, to respect darkness in its own home.

All smoke fades, as do all delicate mirrors shatter.

"My ancestors are smiling on me, Imperials. Can you say the same?"

"Science Fiction today ~ Science Fact tomorrow"

Change is inevitable, it can only be delayed or sped up. Choose wisely.

Truth is pain, and pain is gain.

pedro i've analyzed your handwriting and i've got some good news for you. you're a sociopath. *high five*

inconsistent margins, broken rhythms, sporatic changes from capital to lower case letters, excessive speed (the pencil doesn't break contact with the paper when you cross your As). you also demonstrate an unorthodox understanding of words as they are conventionally used. for example, you 'wash' the dishes while you 'clean' the laundry. most people would say the converse. finally, a frustrated impatience is evidenced in your plan to 'take over the fucking'. you abandoned the idea before you fully articulated it. notice that? very aggressive and impulsive thinking patterns. i'm pretty fucking impressed, man, and glad to have you on board.

I consciously changed it over time to throw my inevitable graphologist investigators off my trail.

If you saw what it would have been, you would shit your pants.

I'll give you a clue.

I originally drew most straight lines from bottom up.

But thank you though, that meant a lot.

I did write the end of that sentence. It just didn't make it into the frame. You can juuuuuust see the first parts of the next word.

So I do have impatience. But it's not frustrated.

*wondering if that bosom picture is gonna work on Brian.*

Its too bad that all the modern men desire a dominate chick, especially towards one who would love nothing more than to embrace femininity... But fears rejection and has intimacy issues.

Imagine if girls spent 1/10th of their focus, energy, and effort, on the quality of their minds, philosophy, and thoughts, instead of their looks.

Until then, females will always be a laughing stock conducting "philosophy".


EDIT: Magsj is the exception around here; she puts in the time for philosophy and it shows throughout the threads.
