tell me all the stereotypes and myths you know about martial arts. I dont know to many. The few i do know deal with fighting and purpose of martial arts.

Like how no martial art helps you in a fight, or how all martial arts help you in a fight, or how there is only one/few surperior martial art(s).

also that martial arts are always trained for combative purposes.

These 4 myths are the only ones i know. tell me more

Edit- one more myth is that martial arts are only found in Asia or originated there.

Edit- truth about martial arts/ fighting

"When people talk about fighting schools they say that kung fu, or karate, or this other style is the best. That is silly, and the problem becomes that the ifghting style then becomes set in stone with no growth, and no adaptation, because what works for me might not work for you "-Bruce Lee

"Use only that which works, and take it from any place you can find it"-Bruce Lee

All im saying is that fighting depends on the individual, not some style. What works for you may not work for me.No such this as inferior or serprior styles.

And if all u know of fighting comes from movies and sports, then u dont know a thing.peace over war

All I hear is that all Asians know some type of martial arts. Which is proven wrong from a friend. =.=; He never did climb that wall.

Kung Fu Panda didn't really help with that pinky trick. I mean by pinching it some sort of way dosen't make you disappear into dust. =.=

i hate that stupid stereotype of the pray mantis thing where someone raises both hands and stands on one foot. You won't believe how many non-asians at my old school 2 yrs ago made fun of the asian kids (which was like 2 including myself) with that.

i found that to be hilarious though

Flying, I'm not sure where they came up with that for all those old films where they fly around with their swords!

I'm always amazed when Chinese movies include those fighting scenes with people using strips of cloth in combat. It can even shatter blocks.

Yep same here. I don't know how to do the stuff you see in movies and half the basics. But I do like looking into backgrounds of some Martial Arts. You're right about the mantis thing, which is pretty much the same thing I said.
