    You obviously don't know much about Pak Mei Quikky, I trained it for years never heard of that technique :-)

      So rather than training, Live Action Role Play is sufficient to make you tEh DeAdlieZ? Or is there a special, magic dance you have to practice over and over a million times that does that for you?

      What exactly is this presumably bigger, stronger person going to be doing while you try to poke their eyes, punch their dick, karate-chop their trachea, and palm strike their solar plexis? Probably just stand there and let you?

        Pai Mai is not an "it", it's a person. ...The Person:

          This is the same mentality I see in firearms training; the guy who thinks because he can go to a range and put a nice group of holes in a piece of paper 7 yards away he's ready for anything.

          Versus someone like me who actually trains and rolls on the ground with someone trying to stab or shoot me while I try to stab or shoot them without getting stabbed or shot myself.

            Size does not equate to striking power, for one. I'd compare it to a sport like baseball or golf in which some of the hardest hitters and throwers and relatively small. Why? They utilize the coiling of their hips and the moving of their centerline.

              Pai Mei was the monk wasn't, he, one of the five ancestors who developed the Pai Mei (Pak Mei) system. Correct me if I'm wrong?

                Not a Kill Bill fan, I see. Ok, look here:

                  Yeah checked it out, we'll at least I got the style right.... Apologies. On the subject, I trained Pak Mei style for 7 years, I found it pretty damned awesome , very aggressive which I think is one of the essentials for a practical fighting system

                    Which of the hardest hitters and throwers in baseball are small exactly?

                    But you're right. I'd much rather get hit full-on by a heavyweight boxer than a featherweight

                    But regardless, what if the person attacking you is a normal human (rather than your fellow LARPer) and doesn't agree to stand 2.5 feet from you and exchange punches?

                    Because most people dont, especially big people picking on little people. He'll grab you and crush you against a car or chuck you to the ground and you'll have no idea how not to get stuck there because you haven't spent the hours trying to get out from under a 235 pound meatbeast. And regardless of what you think, your secret scrotum grabbing techniques won't work when you're mounted.

                      And to think... I mostly try to think up ways TO get stuck under 235lb meatbeasts.

                      Hypothetically of course, being a "good girl" these days and all.

                        Just to clarify, we're still talking about fighting right?

                          That could also be a valid self-defense strategy. Hide under the meat beast.

                          This claim is as specious as wilton's.

                            You and I are. Wilton's talking about Ninjery and other awful LARPing behavior, which I can't condone in the least. And this was directed at him.

                            And of course, Cori's popping in to distract me from the issue at hand and otherwise mess up my entire mojo, which is one of her favorite hobbies.
