I'll read those updates and get back to everybody when I get back from my Careers Night seminar.

Not sure it necessarily proves any one style is better (except in this context, of course)


Superiority of styles should always be judged in context. One school of thought (held by MMA proponents) is that the traditional styles have been superseded by the evolution of martial arts and mixed forms etc. On the other hand, it would be a darn shame to relinquish the original teachings and philosophies that history (especially Chinese) has already ravaged. What I'm actually curious to know is how a traditional Chinese martial artist fares against a Russian commando who trained in Systema Spetsnaz.

I'm not a martial artist, therefore I will not comment on which style I consider to be better. As if I would, anyway, since my techniques initially came from TKD, and we all know how that performs in a real fight lol. I'm more of a tricker anyway.

I had to get ready for it, which involved... well it involved grooming! And it started at 5:30pm, and there was pizza so I wanted to rock up early...

Anyway, I have to finish this case study for a tutorial tomorrow, so hang tight, because it's going to be about 48 hours before I publish the results of this round!

Let me first say that the results will be based on the criteria of both the character in-game, and portrayal of the character by the player. Different things will affect different players and their characters to different degrees- for example a character may be excluded solely on the basis of their character's attributes/behaviour despite the fact their player was entirely competent and punctual. On the other hand, Goumas, unfortunately, has been eliminated by default on the basis he has not sent in an entry. But I am keen to stress that the elimination is from the tournament, and not the story. My role here is to guide each player to determine which plot development would be most effective for their character.

p.s. Xzeno I got your edits, I'll use that version.

sorry to post here when im not an contestant but i would just like to pint this out.

Also, karate sucks! Try doing a real martial art


Karate sint a martial art, martial arts is somethign different, please, and i do mean please, do serious research on thsi matter.

I do train in a very traditional style of karate and i have been for about 12 years. And theres no such thing as the "best" style. different styles serve different people. With that, i leave this post and will try not to reply anymore, sorry, but that just irked me a bit

Some of the old sh'to-ryu masters could kill a bull by pulling its heart out with a special type of knifehand strike . . . .

I don't see that happening in MMA!

If your style was 'very traditional' it probably wouldn't have let you in when you were 6 years old.

PETA would be splashing the producer's house with red paint faster than Leon replaces his hyenas.

Now that our light banter has actually offended somebody, I'm going to 'veto' any further discussion of martial-arts on this thread, meaning please, wrap it up before I post your feedback and results.

Also, we have 4000 posts in this thread. I bet you only about 3500 of them are off-topic

Capital Letter Police target locked.
It's "It's" not "it's". And at least 'grammar' should be capitalised, though I would recommend doing the same to Nazi.
Also, I don' think it is grammar as much as a spelling error/to be confused of the difference between two words, where as grammar is how you form sentences, and the general rules of the sentence, not how you spell.

Generally, I see Strop and Cenere as one combined persona: Strenere!

So by "yours", I meant Strenere's, not just Strop's.

Lol. Random discussion.


Welcome to the WoM.

No, welcome to AG.
