Getting a stick swung at ya!
« on: September 08, 2004, 10:37:50 PM »
You'll never guess what I did today.

I had a stick swung at my head by a guy at least twice as big as me! AND I blocked it effectively, AND did a nice little twist-and-flick thingie that ... very nearly worked. But didn't. So the poor guy had to show me all over again.

I had my first ever Ju Jitsu lesson!  B) We were learning about all the different things you can do if someone attacks you with a stick - although apparently the same principle applies to a baseball bat or glass bottle. The guy I was working with was absolutely huge though, (and I'm actually quite small,) so with some of the moves we had to figure out adjustents so they would still work. But I still managed to incapacitate the poor bloke, and apparently nearly broke his wrist.  X_X

Personally I prefer the "full-force-kick-where-it-hurts" technique, but yours sounds way cooler and probably far more effective, Louise :D

And it doesn't make so much noise like a gun. But maybe with a silencer? :D

Ha-ha! It's true, and I'll be attending the sessions with her. Anyone know any good techniques?

 Andi, I don't think we'll be using guns! O_o

I didn't said that. I simply mean your Ju Jitso is less noisy than defending with a gun.

I practice grabbing sticks and rods of all kinds from people threatening me (namely my brother and friends), so I'm quite good at it, and can always turn the tables in a fight.  Same thing with when someone grabs my arms.  I just do a quick little twisty move, twist their arm off, and grip mine around theirs!  ;)

in fencing, as long as the other opponet is dumb enough to not grab my sword, i'm ok.(or in otherwords, i know only a few parries, dodges,ect...i can do intimidating twirly stuff though,!)

I never have seen the point of defined and planned out moves in sword combat. They often don't fit whatever situation you need, and your opponent my know the same ones and thus be able to anticipate it and destroy you.

This is why you have to be better than you opponent, or at least as good as you opponent. Then you two will collaps at the same time and no one wins or loses. But sword combat must be cool.

Someone got up on the "no sense of humour" side of the bed today.

Do you have any sense of humour at all, Icey? X_X G3K was obviously mocking your oversensitive attitude towards slang terms and non-formal language. You certainly won't get banned for using the word 'puke', or indeed any other word that I know of as long as your posts aren't full of mindless expletives. And why all the freakin' exclamation marks?!!!!!

There's a similar problem in martial arts. Today Conway and I were practising with this kid, and he was trying to teach Conway how to block a straight punch. Conway was rubbish at it, and pointed out that even if he could do it properly, what if the oponent did a right hook? To which the kid said ... 'Well ... he might ... but then he also might do a straight punch. So you should learn this one.' Hmm. The instructor guy is a bit better though - when I ask him a 'what if' question, he'll go 'You'd do this (demonstrates with random victim, too fast for me to follow) - but we'll be covering that later.' Leaving me hoping I won't get in a fight until we've covered it, else I'll be standing there saying to my attacker 'Stand there a minute ... I'm trying to remember how to wrist-chuck you ...' lol.  

And apparently, the answer to 'what if my opponent also knows JuJitsu' is: a) be quicker and better at it than he is, or b) run away very fast.  :D

That was a mean tirade, Conway! And it includes one insult! And one bad word!

[glb]No really.[/glb]

G3K...about my sense of humor...I often laugh at funny stuff, but when you told me that puke was an extremely offending word, I felt like I was really offending you! I didn't know that it was just a joke! :-/

It seemed like rather obvious sarcasm to me.

And that's a very neat picture, Andi. I like it [Let me guess -- 'I would'] XD
