Well.. get this, i was sparring this guy,(tae-kwon-do)and he was a much higher belt than me back then (i was only an intermediate belt when this happened, and he was close to black belt) ok, we were sparring and he got some good knocks on me, right?but then at the same time, I dida reverse side kick, and as i turned he got a reverse crescent kick right above me, like half an inch from my nose, and when my kick landed he went like flying back into the wall! cant touch this!!

well it wasnt the kick itself that was amazing...
it was the fact that e went flying into the wall, and that he was so much higher rank than me...

Since when does rank change your weight and height?

Ducking is also good for identifying witches.
