It is a fighting style built on flexibility basically. It is my favorite! Muay Thai is much like kickboxing, and BJJ is kind of like wrestling, I guess you could say. A lot of the MMA fighters use it (I am a MMA/UFC nerd... ehehe) and it is probably one of the best fighting tools a fighter can learn.
It is about discipline, stretching, flexibility, and the ability to keep your mind under control in a stressful/difficult position. It is a combat sport, which can be used in nearly any aspect of fighting. To me, any fighter who is well trained in BJJ can get out of any hold.
Your welcome! Painter is fun :D I've started to use SAI these days, I'm enjoying it.. Only problem is no CMYK :( I use a Bamboo Fun.. I'm still getting used to it lol! I've used a mouse all these years!
I used to use a mouse, too-- but man, a tablet is so much more intuitive. Not to mention they have pressure sensitivity-- SO NICE!
I see some really amazing things done in SAI. Isn't that the free one?
Droool Intuos! They have those in my college and omg they are very scary! They have a few Cintiqs (sp?) as well but they're so intimidating, they wont even open the boxes lol!
SAI isn't free, you can get a trial but it's pretty cheap so I just bought it. 2500 INR I think that is 55 USD..
The Bamboo came with a tutorial sort of thing, I managed to learn with that.. It was a step by step learn as you go kinda thing.
t's definitely more fun than a mouse, so much you can do with it!
