    THE MAN IN THE ARENA

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

    I prefer this one:

    Bullfight critics row on row*
    Fill the enormous Plaza de Toros*
    But only one is there who knows*
    And he is the one who fights the bull.

    You gained my lasting respect for that move! Great move coach!

    I apologize for coming down on you earlier. Just got worked up a bit getting pressed on by everyone.

    Good for you! And all the best for you and your fighters!

    The implication here is that you know muay thai when you see it. I'm saying you don't.
    A lot of mma guys claim muay thai when they do some weird cross section of american kickboxing, international leg kick rules, and tae kwon do.
    Sanda striking techniques != muay thai

    I claim its Muay Tai, well, that's what Ross advertises: http://www.nysanda.com/ It't not Lama on his website. And certainly not in the ring.
    Actually he claims both sanda and muay thai as 2 separate, but similar arts and that he will teach you both.
    What would happen if a year-old baby fell from a fourth-floor window onto the head of a burly truck driver, standing on the sidewalk?
    It's practically certain that the truckman would be knocked unconscious. He might die of brain concussion or a broken neck.
    Even an innocent little baby can become a dangerous missile WHEN ITS BODY-WEIGHT IS SET INTO FAST MOTION.

    Dont mean to be beating you up man. The muay thai != sanda thing is just a pet peeve of mine.

    Yeah sure he knows Muay Thai - he's the one who claimed a few weeks ago that none of the WMC world title holders are Thai...

    Kickboxing is not Thai Boxing. Sanda is not Kickboxing or Thai Boxing.
