Just another Jake "Awesome" Mace thread

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.

Dude knows his way around a garden, no one can deny that. I would have done a slight raised mound but I'm impressed by Jake's green thumb.

Watch "Arizona NATIVE AVOCADO Tree - Aravaipa Avocado Tree" on YouTube

Maybe I just enjoy being a contrarian but I will say this much in defense Jake Mace, after watching his avocado video, he looks exactly like he did when met him some 15 years ago so he's doing something right.

You should ask.... How long time has he looked like this? How long time did you look like this?

.... Didn't you evolve? Change for the better? :P

If Jake can make a living off his home garden and teaching shitty kung fu full-time, I say good luck to him, it's not a bad lifestyle.

It's clear from his body shape that he trains hard, just not in things that this board cares about.

Fair enough. I met him once and he was a good guy so I feel a need to let people know that, with that I think you open your door to all kinds of karmic events as soon as you say you can fight and know how to kill, as we have seen and heard about many times on this board. Personally it's not something I would ever want to deal with, life is full of enough drama as it is.

p.s. Just realised - he's basically the Renner Gracie of Kung Fu. He's even making smoothie videos.

I think it's the other way around, Renner is stealing Jake's ideas. ;)

Can Renner grow 150 fruit trees in his garden in a desert.

It's how you leverage the size of the plant you have Greg ;)
