How did I get that mixed "useless" with "unless I hope most read thru that I'm at work, typing as fast as I can. Sorry for the confusion.

Usually at night club unless the participate is a dangerous and continous threat the guys tossed outside and or escourted off the property until the next night $$$, or the bouncer and property owner will give a time limit when he can return or be arrested on sight for TP. His occupation or hobby doesn't matter boxer, football player or Karateman.

I dont think any guy is ever gonna agree that someone else's sport is better than their sport. especially fighters. Just the way were made right? Martial arts and fighting sports are the best though cuz i think they rewuire the most determination, strength, and heart over any other sport like soccer or baseball :P

however i also gotta defend boxing. I've done both Karate (shidokan), kickboxing and now i currently box and so far boxing is my favourite. Some ppl have been making a big deal about how we use wraps and gloves even though we only do this becuz we throw so many punches against hard objects (bags, other boxers) that without these are wrists would have massive ammounts of wear on them. Ive done two styles of karate, one was the typical give me money and i give you black belt dojos (unfortunate that so many martial arts are being mocked by these dojos) and the other was a traditional, disciplined dojo. From the four years i spent at this dojo i got basic conditioning and learned many techniques. from the 1 year i spent at boxing i have greatly improved in shape and the techniques i learned here were far more effective in a fight. boxers learn their own style of boxing for their strengths and weaknesses. I have long range, fast hands, and high endurance so i box with devestating bursts and then defend and then burst again. Boxers are highly conditioned, tough as nails, and can hold there own in a streetfight no matter what anyone else thinks. It all comes down to the person not their style.

what a pathetic stereotype.
There is no sport "above" other sports, because as you said its down to the person. The person puts in the effort, has the determination, the heart, training, etc, no matter what the sport is.

once again, it doesnt mean boxing is better, just means you got more out of it. other people might not be the same. I learned more from getting in bar fights than from kickboxing, but I dont go around claiming its the best thing around

I don't see anything 'pathetic' in that at all--I see at as very accurate actually.

He already qualified that his statments were based on his own experiance, and that they don't necessarily speak for everyone when he explictly stated:

I don't see, beyond the poor grammer and punctuation (which is really quite awful, nesquick), why these other aspects of his post required such harsh criticism there crab.

He was basiclly repping boxing above everything else, which was the theme of the post. As I said, just because someones a boxer doesnt mean they can kill everyone in the room, or that they are better fighters than anyone else.

My intentions were not to put boxing on a pedestal at all and this was not the theme of my post. I don't understand how you saw it this way, but posts over the internet can be very easily misinterpreted. I assume this is what caused you to react with so much hostility. Anyways what I meant was that boxers out of the ring would not be like a fish out of water. In my experience leg sweeps and low kicks are easily bypassed by good footwork, and can actually be used against the kicker as he loses balance. I have never seen a high kick pulled off well enough to do any harm nor any other "superior" technique that a boxer is supposed to be helpless against. In fact I find most fights turn into a sprawl'n'brawl match. I apologize for the terrible grammar in my previous post, there is no excuse for that.

Best wishes,
Curtis
