    Default Betao's 1000th post extravaganza

    So I guess this is my 1000th post.

    Damn, what a run. I must say, when I came here back in late januray, I didn't really expect to stick with it, all I was looking for was info on the RATM reunion. But I slowly got caught up in the musical scape that is the coachella board. I've been opened up and introduced to alot of new music here, so I thank everyone for that. Also, cheers to all of the people that on this board that have made laugh when I needed it the most,

    I guess this post should be different or something. Maybe i'll tell a bit about myself. My actual name is Matt, 19 years old, and currently a freshman at Virginia Commonwealth University studying business. Probably my biggest hobby/interest is capoeira (brazilian martial art), that I have been practicing for about three years.

    mm I think i'll end this post with my favorite LOLcat.



    laters.

    Congratulations Matt. I am still a little sad that I have been on these boards since 2004 and not yet reached 1000 posts whilst all these newcomers continue to do so, though.

    according to US News & World Report, VCU has the #1 sculpture program in the US. Also #1 in Nurse Anesthesia. I don't know if there's a connection.

    Awesome. Thumbs up.

    I used to have a capoeira instructor who insisted on playing Thievery Corp for every class. I still weirdly associate it with some of their songs.

    I didn't choose to study capoeira so that I could threaten people on internet message boards.

    I just took a couple classes in college because it was part of the dance program and seemed neat. I really enjoyed it, but I never got very good.

    Dancing karate is an absolute joke. That is fairly obvious. It's not a matter of threatening anyone. When it comes down to defend yourself or someone else, dancing karate isn't going to be worth shit to you. Real life isn't like a Jackie Chan fight scene in a crappy movie. Dancing karate is a fucking joke. List ONE occasion where a dancing karate practitioner actually defeated a legitimate practitioner of a legit MA, in MMA. Oh yeah, you don't even know what the fuck I am going on about because you were in some shitty chain gym one day and some fuck head was leading a worthless class of dancing karate, and you though, oh wow ... that looks so cool. Stupid broad.

    Yes, I have taken BJJ/submission grappling for a few years, on and off -- because of breaks due to deployments and such.

    Edwin, the point is that I didn't take classes to learn how to defend myself. I took classes because I enjoyed the process of learning and practicing capoeira. Not everything is about fighting.

    not sure where you're hanging out, but I haven't had to "defend myself" since I was like 13. and my "real life" contains no violence whatsoever.

    Courtney: It's a fighting art, you dumb woman. Why don't you go take karaTE with a few twelve year olds as well. Go become an black belt in a week. Dumbass.

    TomAz: Knock on wood.

    Ill: I would train my entire life for just one [1] fight. It's that serious when your life is relying on the outcome of any of today's street encounters. You do what you want. I'll do what I want. In the end, I won't be someone who dies from getting jumped by some skinhead chavs outside a football contest in Liverpool.

    meh, I was hoping no one would try to pull the whole "dancing karate is useless" ordeal. I don't feel like arguing about it now, maybe later.

    Actually, it's "an Afro-Brazilian dance form that incorporates self-defense maneuvers," according to the dictionary. Now don't be a jerk.

    Well, exactly. Self defence. Self defence that doesn't fucking work when in use against anyone who has trained more than a week in any credible MA.

    But who cares if you get your face beaten in, as long as you can pull off some cool cartwheels before your five-month hospital stay.
