    I have to admit, if I was picking a martial art based soley on the quality of it's MAP forum, I'd pick karate. You guys are way more fun than some other forums

    We don't take ourselves too seriously. As shown by Moosey's ridiculous and fanciful downgrading of my skills to a B+. We all know I'm the coolest cat, apart from the cat himself, Mr. Enoeda...


    (Cue Moosey's pictures)

    D'oh, I was trying to pun on the word "camp" - not casting aspersions at your skillz0rz! :hat:

    Now, where's Mr Enoeda in his awesome 1970s car...

    Ah, my fault completely! I do apologise!

    (for the rest of you who frequent the non-karate bits of MAP, an apology is where someone realises they have made a mistake and owns up to it)

    I was reading some Okinawan scrolls writen in old style kanji and it was extremely clear that the original concept for Okinawan Te was knitting knee-warmers for pet parrots.

    DISCUSSION CLOSED.
