    Bak Fa Yao is similar but it's an oil.... after applying it, it gets very, very cold.

    I use to swim for my Highschool Swim Team during the time I stopped training in Kung Fu.
    DOH!

    Do you think if I spared with one of you guys, that I'd get beat up [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . Just a thought [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] . I haven't fought in a long time. Last time I got into a fight was with another kid my age. Hate to say it, but I struck first (he was taunting me). Punched him right in the stomach, then he gave me a blow in the face. I lost my balance and fell down. Just I was about to get up and go another round, he said he didn't want to fight anymore, as he had baseball practice (tshh) [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] . II told him "it's not over yet, lets finish this!", but he refused. Darnit, I was so angry. The next day, I went back to settle the score. But (and here's the embarasing part [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] ), his mother stopped us. Bad memmories. In any case, I'll brag, and say that there's no one who can beet me in a street fight, atleast. Reminds me of how much I love to fight, and my long time dream of being a great martial artist. And mark my words, I will achieve it some day [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/mad.gif[/img] ! Well, now you know a little more about me. Lets continue the discussion, shall we.

    Nathaniel,
    You're what, 14 ( I think I saw you were born in '89)? Just a tip from a guy who's 29. STAY THE HECK OUT OF FIGHTS. Come on, man! You know better.
    Bad knees? That young? yikes.
    5'8" at 14? Man. I'm only 5'7". One of my 13 year old students is 5'10"!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif[/img]

    Nathaniel,

    Please stay away from streetfighting. I'm also in my late 20's (28). Back when I was in public school, if you got into a fight, the worst that could happen is that you'd get a good **** whoopin. Today, it's very different... you never know when someone will pull out a gun or a knife. The percentage of that happening is much greater today than before. Even from other kids your age or younger. They might not have any intentions to use it other than to scare you, but all it takes is just one accident. People lose control in tense situations. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I teach the children classes at my school and we recently taught about bullying and how to handle being bullied. Turned out that one of our students, before he joined our school, he was bullied and had a knife used on him. Has a scar to show for it. He's 13 for crying out loud! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    Remember, the only victorious fight is the one you walk away from. Avoid all fights and you're guaranteed victory, always.

    We're not trying to nag on you Nat. Just some wise words from those of us who are older and have learned from the stupid things we did when we were younger. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    With great power, comes great responsibility young Jedi. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]

    Schloaty... I'm telling ya. It's all the growth hormones we feed our livestock (beef, chicken, pork, milk, etc.). The average height of each generation is increasing. 5'10 use to be tall.... back in the 1800's. Kids are hitting puberty earlier too. Oh how humanity is destined to destroy itself. **sigh** [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I'm 5'6... being short has it's advantages... lower centre of gravity...better control... great for duck and weaving attacks. hehehe [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    Lol. Has it's disadvantages too. Gotta keep a step stool around. Had to shop in the junior section until I was 17. Seems like the ladies always dig the tall guys (maybe it only seems that way 'cause I'm not tall). Lucky me found a 5'1" woman to marry. I'm tall to her!

    Think this has anything to do with why I got into martial arts? Can you say Napoleonic complex? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    HAHAHA.... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    Amen bro. My girlfriend/fiance is 5'1 also. In fact, all the girls I ever dated were about my height or shorter. I use to think that it was my height that kept the girls away... turned out I was just a geek with low self esteem. Hahaha. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] It's funny, now that I'm older, but back then it was frustrating as ####.

    I use to think that martial arts would help me score with the chics and turn me into a walking tank. NOT! I do it now for health, safety, and staying close to my culture. It's also an honor to be able to learn and teach an old tradition. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    ...plus you get to learn to handle all these awesome weapons!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    DOH!

    Wow you people are small - I am 6'4 [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . I suppose the bigger they are the harder they fall. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]
