You said it all right there my friend.

I've trained with Grandmaster Lee in Florida.  I just can't condone that chain as a martial art.  They have a camo belt and were guaranteeing people their blackbelt if they signed a 1 year contract.  Everything else in the conversation aside, there is no way to justify that.   That style is a damned sham...I have their black belt instructor manuals (they tried to recruit me over from Tang Soo Do)...you should see the nonsense in this thing.  Its embarrasing.  I did enjoy destroying their fighters though, especially ones 4 and 5 ranks above me. smile

Sigh...I think I probably drink about 60-80 oz of water a day now that I've fully kicked the soda habit.  This does not bode well....

I'll just punch a hole in this theory right now - this guy was a 10th Dan in karate and a 9th Dan in Judo?  That's impossible unless he is part of the McBlackbelt system.  You are required to spend 1 year as a 1st Dan, 2 years as a 2nd, 3 years as a 3rd, and so on and so forth.  That is 55 years not even counting the time it takes to GET your blackbelt.  To do it twice?  Entirely impossible.

As for fighting boxers, I have - they lose just as quick as street fighters, you just have to know where to hit them.  Don't confuse the silly slap-boxing that passes for martial arts on TV with a real traditional martial art.  Same thing with grapplers...they lose just as quick, as they are fumbling with their locks, I'm working on tearing out their eyes.

Katas are not meant for combat.  Only an idiot would associate them to combat, and The Karate Kid was the perpetrator of that foolish notion.   They are meant to teach you balance, control, and muscle memory.  Are you going to tell me those things aren't important to combat?

As for will and big movements...again...traditional martial arts are not flashy and don't have big arching movements.  If its life or death for me, I'm looking to incapacitate my opponent in one or two strikes, just the same as if I was firing a gun.  Will isn't a problem.   Don't think that having a gun suddenly makes you Mr. Willpower either, I saw that firsthand in the military with some of the mouthy paper-soldiers who couldn't cut it when it counted.

My wife loves CSI and Taiko Drum Master.  With CSI its very low-action paced so she doesn't have to be a twitch gamer.  With Taiko, she can play along and get better and we can all have a laugh. smile

15415  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Electronic Entertainment Expo - Who is going? on: January 21, 2005, 04:24:36 PM
Cthuhlu better be out by then and ES is the only other title I'm aware of that could be floor ready by that time I'd think.  Fallout will be pencil sketches still by then I'd guess....or maybe I'm horribly mistaken. slywink  

Still, lunch or breakfast or somesuch with you bunch of yahoos would be cool.

15424  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden IV Review... on: January 15, 2005, 10:39:18 PM
Well, I'm a few hours into the game thus far and so far the storyline is fairly unexciting.  I can see the promise of real strategy underneath though, so don't be too discouraged...I'll report in tomorrow with some more concrete findings.

15426  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden IV Review... on: January 14, 2005, 03:31:15 PM
Metal Gear Solid anyone?  Yea...I like running around the last hour or so holding my jiggly bits in the buff.  Stupid ending....

I did finish Suikoden III before I reviewed it, lets see how this one flows and I'll re-evaluate as I go along.
15427  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden IV Review... on: January 14, 2005, 03:16:16 PM
You have my word, I'll write up a short take after I put a few hours in.  I'm hoping to have it today. The full review will come later after I've put some serious time into the game....

I'm ok if its 3 out of 5 stars, but you can't judge that by the back of the box and 15 minutes of gameplay....

Let me take another shot at finding it, my plate is so overloaded that it was something more for the collection that I'd eventually play than anything else.  slywink
15429  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden IV Review... on: January 14, 2005, 01:53:17 PM
Hey all,

I'll be doing the review on Suikoden IV but rather than rushing something out the door as quickly as possible and giving an incomplete picture of the game, I was thinking of putting at least 40-50 hours into the game first.  That'd be roughly half from what I hear.  I'd like to hear what you think...for incredibly long RPG titles like this, what do you think about delaying reviews to ensure a  more accurate review?  Or do you think they are any more accurate if they are delayed?
