that's what alot of my friends say, and honestly i kinda agree with them. isn't it crazy that almost every class we go back 2 our various homes in pain and tired but yet still we go back for more? some of the things that i'm asked 2 do by my GM, some of the things i've seen my GM ask my sensei and instructors to do, all the endurance that we go through but for us endurance just isn't fitness it's also pain..how much pain we can endure, we are beaten repeatedly by a number of BB, but this isn't everyday off course , and yet still we thirst for more, some of us are told 2 punch the tree and for ourselves we don't stop till we bleed, then we write out our names with our blood...is that crazy?
does anyone else experience this kinda of training?..or are we just a bunch of crazy ppl...?

Writing your name in your own blood?

Are you a Time Traveller from the 17th Century?

You either have an overactive imagination, or if your post is based on fact, you need to find different people to train with.

Writing your name with your own blood... I find it hard to write my name with my own urine

no seriously do you know how much blood it would require if you had a name like

"Sir Fredrico Porsloviao Emilio Rodregez"

Maybe you were symbolizing something when you said you write your name with your blood, maybe you were talking about bleeding yet perservering

sorry sometimes I take things to literal.

wow....ok..
and no..i won't find diff ppl 2 train with at all...we kick ass no matter where we go, so i guess there's a method 2 my GM's madness, and yes it's all fact, i think we get the true essence of MA, no just the light contact kinda bs, when we spar we spar light, yes, but we train full contact was well...we do conditioning, and AS FOR WRITING OUT OUR NAMES? we just write one...and i knew some "fool" would have written some long as hell name, i kinda saw that one coming...good thing is no one has ever suffered any major injuries while in training with us
but keep in mind that not everyone in our dojo is subject 2 thing sort of training...now, dis-regard skill here, get in an old fashioned fist fight, i wonder who hits harder , who will be able 2 endure more if he is being beaten in real life by a mob and help preserve his life, cause face it, u must get hit some time....
