I was in Las Vegas last week and had a wonderful opportunity to train at the Xyience Training Center, as you know from this thread. The cab guy picked me up from the gym and was driving me back to my hotel. At which case he starts asking me about BJJ/Muay Thai/etc.. I explain to him in non technical terms, but never boast about "I TRAIN UFC, TAP or SNAP!!!" tell him about the sport and how far it's come along.
He says, yea I know about it, it's the any-thing goes! Then I have to explain to him that there are rules and it's sanctioned by athletic commisions.
He (Cab Driver)says "No poking in the eye" ?
CD: "Punching his balls"?
CD: "Saying, Your sister is a whore"?
Me: "No, that's unsportsman like conduct"
CD: "That's right, they say that in the NFL, a man's sport"
CD: "How tall are you"?
CD: "Do you train because you were picked on because of your height in school"?
Me: "No, I was an athlete in school, not really picked on, and not for my height"
