    the only way howard ever had a brown belt is if he shit himself wiped his anal fissure before it was buried in the yard.

    I've been doing Judo since 1974.
    I'm a second Dan (Ni Dan) and made to the Bronze Medal round of the National Championships in 1989.
    I retired from competition in 2007 after winning a Bronze in the Texas Lone Star Classic in Dallas.
    It takes decades to build the level of instinctual reaction that's needed to be good at any martial art.
    A lot of learning how to fight is building the instinct.

    That said, Howard can barely chew gum and walk at the same time.
    Japanese Karate is the real deal but not what passes for it in the US.
    The first UFC bouts proved that most US Karateka can't fight to save their lives.

    Howard never even made it to brown belt.
    He stopped weeks before a rank test.
    Really good guys earn their rank through batsugan shiai.

    Basically you fight until you lose.
    Win 5 in a row against your own rank or higher and you are awarded your next rank.
    I did this as a teenager for my first brown rank (San Kyu).

    A variation of the batsugan is used by the REAL Brazilian Jiu Jitsu guys who are blue or purple belt.

    When Howard talks about Martial Arts its like everything else that isn't radio.
    He's a complete failure at it and his jealousy shows right through.
    I love it when he talks about the Koreans.
    The Korean Judo guys are real hard asses.
    They laugh at the obsession with Tae Kwon Do in the west.
    In Korea it's the equivalent of day care with physical activity.
    The Koreans invented the McDojo.
    As long as you pay your monthly fee, you'll eventually be promoted to whatever rank you want.


    I would LOVE to see Ronda Rousey against Howard in an Octagon.
    She's kill him in about 15 seconds.
