Is Bischoff's black belt in karate legitimate or a work?
I'd put money on Eric if the black belt is legitimate.
A Black belt means nothing, i know this personally
i was in Karate and the Karate teacher son was a black belt, and a asshole, kinda like a bully, and this Karate class was also a place to stay to keep out of trouble after school if uyour parents worked late.
one night, i decided to sparr (for those that don't know, a spar is to legit fight with gloves and a boxing head protector)
while a few random spar matches went on, the teachers son wanted to go a round with me, of course, after months of being bullied by this piece of shit, i wouldn't mind getting my ass kicked if it meant i got to have a few good punches thrown in so i went for it.
all i can say is eventually the teacher ran in the mat area to pull me off his son, who has a busted up lip and a broken nose.
A black belt sounds scary but when you have years of experience of actually fighting in the streets (i grew up in a ghetto where gangs were all over) and you learn how to truly fight, Karate is not helpful at all, in fact, all those Karate movies where the hero uses karate to defeat guys in the street, it's just a movie.
Karate is basically, only good if your opponent only knows how to punch and kick and is a dumbass, but if your opponent has a high tolerance for pain, a fuckin judo chop and spin kick is a walk in the park.
