    Stinky gi's. I hate training with people whose gear stinks, or they're just generally stinky. Take a shower, people! :woo:
    People who jerk back when they're holding the pads suck too - if I'm going to kick the pad, you stand there and you take it like a man/ woman! I hate to throw and hit nothing because my partners moved away like a wuss :woo:
  3. About people (not necessarily martial artists)

    •What style is the best for "x" skill?
    •Will martial arts protect me from t3h str33t?
    •Students learning from a book
    •Bad black belts technique wise
    •We're the best comments

    That about does it for me.
  4. And for actual training, Sever summed it up...

    I was told to meet the guy's hands as he punched (not slam the pads into him but enough resistance).

    That's the best way. Maybe the partner in question misunderstood and thought he was told to move the kickshield AWAY from my leg. Either way, I hate it

    some more...

    * people who complain about minor knocks/ bruises etc,, these are inevitable.

    * 2 week masters
    ( over confident under skilled students)

    *over exposed styles :cry:

    use his leg as the pad.this will correct his pad holding... or help him nicely by advice/instruction.

    That's my usual technique - he just jerks away because he doesn't like getting hit, even with a huge pad on his arm. He'll get used to it, eventually
    I also hate it when people come from another style and go on and on and on and ON about how in X martial art, they do things this way and that they may have not done too well in sparring, but if it was no gloves, the other guy would be on the floor

    Ah, this is a rant....

    Advertisement in the media
    I hate the telemarketors and advertisers who think your personal life is a fag petting zoo under seige of nuclear holocaust. Actually, I don't hate them, I hate their job. It gets on my nerves when someone is always telling you what you need, because they don't like what you have. Most of the time, they are cool, normal, and then....there's the "kill the clown if you love NY" t-shirt ad.
    Common you telemarketers, get real, really. :eek:

    Stereotypical fung do
    People who stereotype you because you kung fu, doesn't sound like karate, and there isn't umpteen tropies and belts to prove it. I can't wait to spar them though, and I always let them get back up. Thats what makes the first lesson so fun! All martial arts rock, in there own way. :cool:

    Camera mythologies
    The illusional myth that camera work proves competetive fighting is nothing but violence and we should sensor our children from reality by forcing them
    to watch more horror movies, curse like sailors, and pretend to kill everything.
    By the way, the director of "Natural Born Killers" was seriously insane. And it has nothing to do with anyone I know.... :D

    Sissy spar
    "OW!, you hit me!" sound familiar? :Alien:

    Spectators who think they are psychiatrists
    Ah yes, then there's the cliche of spectators who think they are
    totally legitimate to pass on diagnosis of pre-liminary psychosis and
    violent behavior based on pre-emptive and non-negligable behavior
    of a stressed individual. I don't hate them, they just need a liscense :bang:

    sparring with weapons
    Anybody who wants to spar, before they train.
    If you wanna fight, just fight me! :D

    Hey, I like TKD, and she's female, it doesn't mean we're gonna get married!

    All well and good in sparring. In drilling and pad work, it's bad - unless it's "hit the target" style, but then I wouldn't find it so annoying

    just people
    people who say that videogames are bad for you.
    people who promote censorship.
    ignorant people
    overly religious fanatics who want to confuse "saving" you for "giving" the church money.

    Martial Arts pet hates
    point sparring.
    people who bitch about minor injuries.
    lazy people who complain and don't have any drive to improve themselves.
    people who talk about training realistically and then do the exact opposite.
    TMAists who down MMA and yet don't have the balls to step in the cage for 5 minutes.
    people who refuse to adapt or evolve.
    Instructors who would rather "preserve the syllabus of the art" than utilize better training meathods and impisize conditioning.
    anyone who markets olympic TKD as a "self-defense" class.

    lol, In Hapkido, they don't last long.

    I don't like beginner black belts who overrate their authority to the point of swelled-headedness.
    That's the only one I can think of now.

    child black belts.. unless you were raised in a monastery in Tibet or China, no way do I believe some 6 year old in Wales deserves a black belt!

    incompetent instructors... I shouldn't have to spend years undoing the bad techniques I was taught. If you can't teach preoperly, GET OFF THE MAT!

    people who whine about every little bit of contact... we ARE doing martial arts, not pillowfighting! While it's bad form for me to break your arm in class, if we're doing a drill and I'm supposed to push you, then you're getting pushed. Don't whine about it, especially of you're wearing chest protection.

    Opponents who don't work hard enough...If we're doing self-defense and I ask for a punch, don't just stick your arm out. PUNCH ME. If I can't do the technique against a full punch, I'd like to know before I get assaulted in that dark alley, thanks.
