Virtual Dojo Announcement

Posted in Uncategorized on May 27, 2008 by freakychinaman

Ok, listen up people, for those that aren’t attending university or highschool in Australia, this is a note to tell you guys I’m in the last 3 weeks or so of my semester so I’m really busy and I still haven’t studied. So coming here every week isn’t in my best interest considering how much procrastination I go through already. So I probably won’t even think about updating till after the 20th of June.

Kevin Lee out.

P.S. I’ll be going to Hong Kong on the 22nd for 2 weeks, so friends in the city give me a ring or email because I’ll be tight on time. And for everyone else, rest assure I’ll take many Engrish photos!

You are not a RPG character

Often (if not always) any discussion I have concerning martial arts involves people categorizing themselves or others as either long/mid/close/in strikers (then further split into boxers and kickers…), weapons, grapplers, ground fighters etc. I think it’s good to know your strong points and it gives you a focus in discussion, but when you categorize yourself all the time you psychologically limit yourself. This also goes for any other matter like types of knowledge, preferred music and movies etc.

I’ve had friends tell me that they’re boxers (not the ones you wear…) or wrestlers, and pretty much that’s all they focus on; so the wrestlers don’t practice their punches and the boxers don’t bother grabbing, and I think this is just giving yourself a handicap. If I must categorize myself, I would say I’m a mid-range striker (over a swordsman simply because I’ve fought more in unarmed), but I still like grapples and ground fighting (though not good at it…), and I brawl quite a bit. We are not fucking RPG characters: we don’t have to pick a certain trait and focus on maxing it! And we don’t have a crappy leveling system, you can train up your abilities as you go… I suppose this leads back to my previous statement that just because you do taekwondo you don’t need to do fairy kicks all the time and Judo people can punch too…

“Love is patient; love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”
Corinthians 13:4–7 (NIV)

Well I give up, I have looked absolutely everywhere and I could not find anything that tells us that we are not allowed to love people below 18! Don’t get me wrong, I think sleeping with 5 year olds is disgusting… so let’s up the level a little so this doesn’t go disgusting… let’s say a 15 year old: if you’re not doing it against her will nor are you deceiving her, then why can’t 2 people that have feelings for each other be together? I see around me anything remotely hinting sexuality of people under 18 being crucified. I remember a report on TV about I think a swimming coach or something was having a relationship with his underage student, and naturally was prosecuted and jailed. However after he was released and she was of age, they got back together; is this not the enduring love we speak of all the time? yet he is branded a pedophile and everyone emphasized that he was deceiving her, exploiting her… but seeing that they got together again (or at least attempted, didn’t really follow up too far) he wasn’t just looking for an easy meal, because putting up with all the accusations and aggression is definitely not easy.

Just think about it, think back maybe a few centuries: we had prearranged marriages, 8 year old couples, 5 year old mothers, and grandpa was 40… obviously wasn’t an issue then, so why now? In an age where fathers are marrying daughters, people having passions for Sonic and Robotnic, we choose to worry about a 16 year old girl giving out blowjobs?

I would imagine the greatest argument would be: “well they are still young and innocent, and they can’t distinguish between good and bad people, therefore won’t make the right decisions”. Well firstly, kids today aren’t innocent: you’ll see 4 year olds swearing and 9 year olds with a hardcore porn stash (and I mean how many people were still virgins after high school?… honestly); secondly, does having been alive for 18 years mean you make all the right decisions and can tell good from bad? NO! less likely… maybe (people still get lured by strangers, but probably not by candy or puppies), but ultimately it means nothing. The only thing that’ll help you tell good people from bad is experience and logic, so 18 years of thinking that you know everything, yet have been bubble-wrapped and sheltered from reality?… quite the opposite thing.

I think child molesters and rapists should be executed over 2 hours with 4 blenders filled with super-glue (so they don’t bleed to death first) to each of their limbs and an apple peeler corer for males (be creative); but if your kid can tell the difference between a handjob and giving the priest a massage, and can take responsibility of their actions, then who are we to say that they are wrong?
