Re: Childhood (not so) crackpot theories

Here are a few of mine and I still like them: You could make an invisibility cloak of fibre optic strands that stick out like hairs perpendicular to the body being cloaked. These run around the body sticking out the other side. This would bend light around ze body turning it partially invisible (onl...

Re: The Martial Arts Thread

Nike the cross training dude. They don't own you, remember that you pay for the training. Any club that has issues about this is probably offering fries with that black belt. On that note, other typical Mc Dojo smells include; small joint manipulation, gouging, biting, non-contact sparring, pressure...

Re: The Martial Arts Thread

If you go "full contact and full speed" and somebody doesn't go to the hospital, your art isn't meant for self defense. Not too sure of what you are trying to say here (I may have fallen into the sarchasm), if you don't tap out during training you could easily end up in hospital (dependin...

Moving someones non cooperative body mass (50-110kg) builds core strength and stamina. Through practi...
