I stopped once I was in high school, always was short compared to others. Worst part about it was when I liked another girl a few years back who turned me down because she wouldn't date a shorter guy lol. That was the biggest diss I ever got, I honestly couldn't believe she said that lol.

Use a combination of shoe lifts and a medieval torture rack to appear taller.

I'm about 6 tall.

Though I don't do any Tee Kwan Dodo or Martial Arts I know how to slam anyone, regardless of strength or height, straight into the floor thanks to playing rugby three times a week. Although my friend who did some fancy combat thing has amazing reflexes and kicks ass, and I can't touch him. So I guess I might not be able to counter your Dodo skills.

Heh, don't worry. I may be a black belt but I usually get my ass kicked in tournaments. Mainly because my weight fluctuates between two different rankings, and the guys in the lower one are faster than me and I can't dodge as easily and the ones in the upper one are slow but they almost break my ribs any time they hit me.

Well, atleast I know I'd get my ass kicked if I got in a real fight, but many guys that learn martial arts probably think they could beat Chuck Norris. The only thing I really excelled at were back kicks but it's usually hard to pull off in a fight.

It takes some really good training to be able to defend yourself properly, because being able to break wooden planks that are 5cm thick isn't gonna save you from getting KOed from a punch to the face.

Which is why I like aikidou- it's all about biometrics and kinetics. It's not about breaking boards- it's using the kinetic energy of a punch some guy threw at you to sent him face first into a floor.

Living in South Carolina makes me agree with this statement. Its sad when our criminal rate matches big city areas.

Don't get me wrong, taekwondo isn't not just about breaking boards. We do pay a lot of mind to the way we perform our techniques so that we can do the most damage to the opponent. Taekwondo is one of the few martial arts that performs what my master calls "exploding techniques", that is, while your foot won't go as high as you won't it or you can't keep your balance long enough to make a precise strike at an opponent's head, you can train yourself so that you can, for a brief moment and with enough momentum aplied to the technique, push your leg that far up so that it hits where you want it to.

We also pay a lot of mind to the preparation of a technique. If you punch someone just by raising your arm and pushing your fist into his face, it won't be as powerful as if you push your arm back first and then extend it at the same time you twist your waist.

See, taekwondo can be very technical about everything. All I was complaining about was people who think that because they break boards they could beat everyone around.

Hmmm... Never heard of that... Say, at which rank is that usually taught? ^,^ (I myself am a former Taeknowdo Student and I went up to the 2nd Kup, but then some changes came which simply meant that a lot of the stuff I learned was for nothing... And well, I never succeded to continue since then :\ )

Well it may be just my master's teachings, as he's also a master in ninjutsu, karate and other martial arts, but I've also seen this pratice in other schools. My school is mainly combat oriented and we're usually taught this as soon as we can perform decent kicks to the head.

Also, was your school ITF or WTF? Because mine is WTF (no jokes, it means World Taekwondo Federation).

If I remember right, my school was ITF. We were taught hyeongs, but then with the mentioned change I had to start to learn the pumsaes, at which I failed.

Well, once I am eighteen, I do intend to apply for a gun license and keep it in my house. I do not think I'm immune to bullets, I just like aikidou because it is the only martial art that can basically only be used in defense- if you beat someone up with it it is because they were assaulting you.

Yeah and also the way he appeared out of nowhere, and he was living in the Scarlet monastery.

Zabra Hexx, a troll priest that follows the light. Hm, I don't know, he seems to be on the level and Mograine even did his own Holy lie detector test to see if he was lieing...and he passed... But Darkspear tribe might be getting followers of the light. Does that mean that the Horde will get another class like Troll paladins?

Dark Iron dwarves are pretty good with fire magic and elementals. The heir to Ironforge is their new emperor. Could be a possibility.

I wouldn't confirm he was a Darkspear, but if he was... he had no business in that region at that time.

What do you think he is? A spirit of some kind?

Zabra did get suspicious since he disappears after meeting with Darion just like that, he could be a spirit but maybe.... HE IS UTHER REBORN!!!!!!!

He's possessed by Uther or he's just a loa god.

Zabra might be Detheroc. Really!

Then the survivors of Galvar Pureblood's Crusade band together to form... the Scarlet DAWN! AGAIN!

The light lie detector said that Zabra was telling the truth about who he was, but there's got to be something more to the character.

He seems to have no affiliation with the Horde whatsoever. No indication he's even Darkspear. If any group would get a new cool character from him, it would be the Argent Dawn.
