I've not tried the helmets yet but at this other karate club I recently joined (yay for being a white belt again haha!) they have you wear a chest padding plate thing to help condition the body when the other guy punches and kicks you. It took a little bit of time getting used to. To just stand there and take a bunch of attacks without guarding and really feeling the impact of the techniques (although I have done plenty of pad work in the past, the armour is slightly different because it's attached to your body). But yeah by my second lesson I was used to it and I can take the hits now. I gotta tone down the level of my attacks though because I kick too hard sometimes, even with the armour.

Is it true that in a lot of karate clubs you can basically buy your way to a black belt?

I just typed out a reply, then deleted it before posting. I'm in a bad mood and will end up starting a fight.

I don't care much about sports, honestly. It would require being social. Just doesn't interest me.

I can't say for certain but I do know that GKR Karate, one of the biggest karate organizations around is a bunch of horse crap. When I was unemployed, I went to one of their clubs to try and get some work there as a self defence consultant and he was like "yeah you'll have to take our accelerated black belt course as part of the requirements to get the job. You should be able to complete it in around two years". And I just thought to myself accelerated black belt course, what the ****? What kind of person gets a black belt in two years? I've had a look into their website and stuff as well and this is an organization that just wants to make money. They try to sell the concept of "karate for all the family" (so that they can make more money) and they have people who go door to door to try and get people to join their karate clubs, which I kind of compare with those Christian people who go knocking door to door trying to convert people to their faith. These GKR people are just a complete disgrace to karate in my opinion and you know what, I wouldn't be surprised if they do have a bunch of black belts who just paid their way to get it.

Yeah those kinds of courses is exactly what I mean, like they get people to spend money to become a black belt fast and then they get to advertise "We have 300 black belts around the world!" or whatever and get more money. Shadyyy.

None of us are fat enough nor can we handle the fat if we even want to, believe me I've been to the pictures thread. Only the top fashion models over here on PC.

(I say that because you literally have to gain around 200 pounds, I'm sure I would die before 10 pounds)

I don't use that forum much. So I don't remember rules involving only that forum. x:

I see no appeal in sumo wrestling. I mean, what's even the point?

Woot, Tier 5.

And I dunno about sumo wrestling. But I love regular wrestling, even if it's scripted and all.

Dipu, now PC isn't letting new messages show up for me, either.

As for wrestling- when you think into it- why do people pay to watch other people beat each other up? Doesn't make sense to me haha.

I love WWE. Even tho I haven't watched it for some time now. Although I don't like the direction it's headed right now.

I guess that's where we differ there. For me, to be able to act out a story and incorporate a physical beatdown into the mix appeals. Granted, it seems silly when looked at objectively, but I've grown oblivious to that fact. If the people can act and can also wrestle, then you've got yourself a good show. If they lack in one of those aspects, it can hurt the story, and that can turn people off.

And Slendy, some people are just fans. It's like reading a book, sorta. Odd metaphor, but I mean that!

Also the bad thing about knowing it's scripted, sometimes you know the outcomes of big match-ups =/

Sometimes, but not always! I legit didn't expect The Rock to win last year. That being said, I just know Cena's going to win this year. Also didn't expect Sheamus to win last year either.

I can somewhat comprehend that metaphor.
Somewhat. Haha

I can't much partake in this conversation. Mainly because I have no clue who just about any of those people are. x;

The Rock! You know, the movie star Dwayne Johnson? Never liked his movies much, though, tbh. Except for the Game Plan.

And yerp, Slendy has. =D
