The following typical threads that plague martial arts sites will get moved here if not just deleted: 1 - My style is better than Your style" - 2 - "Internal & External" - 3 - Personal attacks - 4 - Threads that start well, but degenerate into a spiral of nonsense.
Forty years after the fact I was reunited with the girl I should have married. I passed by her in the street, didn't recognize her, but she pointed and said all three of my names, so I could not very well deny it.
She hugged me right there and told me all about her life and both her children. She married a policeman and became a doctor. She told me all about her children and then went into an expensive shop.
She never once asked how I had been, or what I had been doing. I conclude that "what might have been" is a grammatical error. What might have been, already was.
What could have happened, already did.

In sport fighting formats, there are always some techniques outlawed in the rule book. Some of these are good techniques to evaluate for self defense potential. If something is considered an unfair practice, it might be just the thing in a defense situation.
I was looking at the taekwondo rules earlier. I have emphasized the points I mean.
There are two types of penalties, a warning penalty (kyong-go) or a deduction penalty (gam-jeom). Two warnings or one deduction will result in the loss of one point. A deduction of three points will result in the offending competitor being disqualified.
Kyong-go or warning penalties include:
Grabbing, pushing or holding your opponent Intentionally crossing the alert line (see Competition Area) Avoiding your opponent by turning your back Leaving the competition area Intentionally falling down Attacking with the knee Feigning injury Offensive language Punching your opponents face with your fist or hands Intentionally attacking the groin. Intentionally stomping on or kicking the foot or leg of your opponent
Gam-Jeom or deduction penalties include:
Intentionally attacking an opponent who has fallen Intentionally attacking your opponent after the referee has called for a break Intentionally attacking the back of the head of your opponent Throwing an opponent Head butting Severely attacking and punching the face of your opponent with your fist or hands Crossing the boundary line Violent or extreme behavior or speech
Other sport fighting formats have other restrictions, and in like manner, some of them are actually good ideas.

If you want to get laid, keep your bathroom clean i.e. no pubes on the toilet bowl, no piss stains, no limescale in the sink and shower, no plaque on the mirror. Actually, just keep it clean anyway, for quality of life.
