I feel ya bro...

And I agree with everything you've said... however, every strategy or tactic can be countered - provided one is able to seize the opportunity at the right time.

I can't remember if it was Rick Clark or Pat McCarthy who once told me - it's all about mastering your space and controlling the other person's space.

BTW, I've seen George Chung kick in jeans.... OK, granted his jeans had a diamond-shaped crutch piece to facilitate his signature high kick.... still impressive nonetheless.
