This was before the MMA craze. Traditional styles are a dying art, although I could probably still lay the boots to alot of these"MMA" artists
Never heard of Arnis, sounds interesting. I skimmed the wiki page, seems like its a mix of Judo, Karate and stick fighting. Odd thing to be into, was it something you sought out or did you just happen by it somehow and decided to stick with it?

Be cool bro, I don't want any trouble. I'm not suicidal enough to **** with someone with an Affliction or Tapout shirt.

would love to hear some of you guys' input in the MMA thread. i'm sure you would help make the conversation a little more technical and interesting...
Those routines are the exact reason I hated Karate as a kid. Then I got yelled at for punching a kid in the face during a sparring session (one of the very few) while he was decked out in protective gear, at that point I was done with it.
