Hummmngh,

Annoying phrases/sayings...

"Yin/Yang" (Explain beyond the cliche w/o using the word)
"..... in the street......" (Yawn)
"...X kata was created for..." (you were there?)
"...ninja..." (how far from your 18th birthday are you?)
"...rice paddies..." (Prove that theory re: where its used)
"...crane..." (Hate that blasted secretive nuanced bird...)
"...shaolin/buddha..." (Prove the connection)
"...one punch kill..." (Good luck attempting that )


Take your pick but many exist. But any of the above in almost any context are unfortunate. All of us know people who will Yin/yang us to death (literally) without being able to explain beyond that phrase. Or bring up the blasted Crane style/version/technique... why is that ALWAYS the highest secret aspects of nearly every art whether they call it Hopporen <sp.?> or by one of the many flavors of the name? Ninja outside of a historical discussion... Knowing with absolute certainty the historical REASON something was done, 50, 100, 1000 years ago... good luck proving that idea! Having a direct connection to a ~mythic figure~ which you cannot prove said connections...? Forcing/making a lineage connection to an art (Shaolin in this example) in order to legitimize what "I" (generic) do is tragic and unnecessary. If we cannot explain the what's and whys in contect today, what good does a vague connection to something "older" do for me?

There are lots of oddities, and word choice peeves...

"Spinning kicks don't work"

Yes, that is a very annoying thing to say. I used to firmly believe that until I got ktfo by an extremely fast and well trained TKD guy that snuck one in there on me. And in perfect hypocritical fashion.. I hate the saying "ktfo".

Hi folks looks like good forum you have here loads of stuff for a new chap to get to grips with.

Interesting thread too.


Hi Redshinobi folks at MAP are wondering where you've got to:
http://www.martialartsplanet.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46315&page=1&pp=15



Right annoying sayings:

In response when an individual is pointed out as possibly presenting a misleading front:

“Yeah well he seems like a nice guy”

Of course he does he’s trying to take your money!!


and there's

"oh you do MA, what do you do Karate?"

"No actually I do x art"

"Oh right that's like Karate though"

"No not really"

"So how long have you been doing Karate"
