Those Who Talk Karate…and Those Who Do Karate

There are people who surf the net, google ‘Karate fighting,’ and thinks it’s so cool to see Kimbo Slice knock the crap out of some idiot.

Then there are those people who actively look for forms and techniques, study the moves, and think about what has happened.

The first guy is a Beavis and Butthead fellow, and these guys are why I don’t usually allow comments on my videos. They aren’t going to say anything nice. They drink beer and snicker and have an opinion…and know not facts.

The second guy is sincere and interested in what is happening. He’s comparing what he’s observing, searching for a truth. Chances are, this second guy has a kicking bag out in the backshed, or a homemade makiwara on a fencepost, and he even goes out in the backyard on a weekend day and works on these things called forms.

There’s two types of people in life. Always choose the second for your friends. Beavis and Butthead will just light you on fire and snicker. The second kind will help you move your refrigerator, lend you five when you’re short, and even come to your kid’s birthday party.
