I know exactly how you feel, whenever I want to do some hard, solid, full contact sparring or live grappling, nobody ever wants to train. I got one guy who regularly wants to train, and even he sometimes doesn't feel like it, and he's leaving to his native country on the 24th. Who am I supposed to train hard with then?

Here's my rant for the day.

I work with a guy who trains in Shorinryu,good style,if it's trained right. He is a ten year student and a sandan(3rd degree). He is also arrogant and condescending. Our conversations go along these lines.

B- "Hey Mike,been working out?"

M- "Yeah,we had a seminar this weekend on tuite.Do you know what tuite is?"

B- "Um,you do know I've been in ma for a while,right?"

M- "Tuite is grappling and joint locks."

B- "Aren't joint locks considered grappling?"

M- "It was a good seminar,you should have been there."

B- "Maybe next time. Would you like to get together with my group and spar or something? Maybe you can show me some weapons forms?"

M- "I'll tell ya what I know literally just about all of them. I'm so saturated with knowledge it's almost boring. I don't spar anymore because people got hurt."

B- "Saturated huh? But,you don't spar?Maybe we can go over some groundwork?"

M- "I don't do groundfighting,I don't think there's anyone who could take me down and if they did they'd be hurting when they got there."

B- "Ofcourse,but you don't spar......"

M- "I've got some techniques that can't be countered,I'm saturated I tell ya,there's not much I can't show you."

B- "Ok,have a good one Mike...."

I've been to his school twice,both times everyone stood around discussin all that they knew.Then we did some kata and weapons forms. The talking took up more than half the time though.
I've offered for him to visit my school many times,but he says he "doesn't get out that way much.." Yeah right,whatever. Keep 'training' ....

Anyone have any good smartass comments I could send his way?

how about 'geez mike, there is no 'almost' about it'

or look off in the distance to your left, kind of phased out- you not paying attention will be noticed immediately. when he calls you on it just snap back to focus and say 'you just reminded me, I have to get horse manure for the garden on my way home'

or, 'you know mike, and I mean this with all due respect, WOULD YOU MIND AWFULLY JUST FU*KING OFF!!!!'

or you could just straight up shoot for him mid sentence, take mount and then say 'sorry, I missed the last bit, what were you saying? '

god I have no patience for this sort of blow hard in any walk of life. i give you credit for even talking to him.

My gripe,

Girls who praise you with compliments about you always going to the gym and being fit and how your martial arts makes them feel safe so that you start going out with each other, then they wait until its too late and your in love before they try to change you completely and stop your martail arts and gym training. Especially if like me only do these activities when she's busy like at work or at a dancing class or whatever anyway. Even worse still if its only cos she's paraniod that you'll meet a girl whilst beasting yourself and torturing yourself with some kind of training!! Even though you love her too much to even look elsewhere!! How are you supposed to balance the things in your life when they all need so much attention!!!!

By the way that wasn't supposed to be sexist, I'm sure there are men out there who do this to their girlfriends who train!

Here's one: 'Since you're so good at TALKING MA, you really should consider contributing to an internet forum. Bullshido, perhaps?'
