Thank god I'm in this for the long run.

I have lived with a dabble of shame in my shelf due to the early dropout in the MWT. Then again, I've started to dislike The Nergyl Child. I'm working more on that other guy who's ttly more important than TNC. Guy named "Shadow". He's a different story though (I'm pretty sure no one wants to listen to me about that).

I'm really loving the character development in Thoad with this. Possibly the absolute best piece of development with 'im.

Not to mention it's gotten a lot of the art community involved in making their own characters, which is a definite extra. I will say that the WoM is definitely a good thing for the art community.

Just a bit of ***-kissing here.

Woody?

Yeah, I agree with you Thoad, this does help with character development. Even though I am really unsure who Kingryan really is...

I'm glad that that piece of bark managed to make art forum history.

But no.

I replaced him for a Fox.

Far be it my intention to start a digression on martial-arts in this thread, but "outside roundhouse kick" is a really confusing term, simply because the mechanics of doing a kick with the inside and outside leg is fundamentally different. Unless you're just wheeling your legs around but that's not really in most martial arts...

To the best of my knowledge, an outside roundhouse is where your toes are pointed and you bring your knee up facing sideways and kick in from the side, whereas an inside starts out appearing to be a front snap kick that pivots into a roundhouse at the last second.

Oh well, I'm getting all this from the ****o-ryu school of karate.  Two of my relatives are black belts in the style, so yeah, that's where I'm getting this from >_>

I'm in an Okinawan style though, not this, because there aren't any ****o-ryu dojos around here.

There's a lot of inconsistency in the use of the English terminology. For example, having looked at this page, I'm going to assume you're referring to are the mawashi geri and gyaku mawashi geri respectively. But Wiki's description of "reverse direction roundhouse kick" is not helpful!

Looking at Youtube is also not helpful, as the one video on it mistakes gyaku mawashi geri for ushiro geri (which I call a crescent kick because my terminology background is taekwondo). So I go to image search instead:

http://aschantepiejudo.idoo.com/Images/Techniques/JuJitsu/GyakuMawashiGeri.jpg

Which is not a movement I've ever used seriously. There's a TKD feint which uses the same setup... but I'm curious to find out its application because as far as the styles I'm familiar with go, that's a terrible strike!
