Quote# 90104

Kara–means ‘I surrender myself’ and Te’—means ‘to Zen Buddha.’ There are 25 original styles of Karate’, each is named after Tibetan monks from where it originated. It was not started in Japan or by Bruce Lee as Hollywood would have you believe! The same bow always used to welcome the space, energy, spirit and personage of a High Priest of Satan in the midst of a Sanctuary was adopted later by Tibetan Lama monks and used in the deadliest art form of self defense - Karate’. Many of the low grunts and pronunciations of karate’s blows, blocks and screams of release have to be incorporated in pre-summoning certain spirits that frequent the same dimension and locality of the monks in the east and Satanic Temples world-wide.

Yes, and Sa means "Magus-Thor'rauna is" and Tan means "full of shit."

I wonder what he'd think about Tae Kwon Do, the Korean martial art (said the Yellow Recommended)?

@ Horus IX
I too facepalmed so hard that I think I broke my nose and loosened a few teeth. If I'm right though, and I'm probably not, this is written by one of those african ministers that makes an American fundie look downright rational. So this level of derp is expected.

I, who failed first year Japanese, know that karate means open hand.

And how does anyone get Zen Buddha from te (ignoring the fact that there is no Zen Buddha)?

Buddha is Butsu in Japanese and Fo in Chinese.

""Man, FSTDT is just filled with Christians being ignorant about homosexuality. It's so cliche! I wish I could read about Satanists being ignorant about karate!"

This is actually what I was wishing yesterday. How did you know?"

Are you sure this guy is actually a Satanist? I got the impression that this was an anti-karate rant, kinda like Jack Chick's D&D stuff.

I just want to point out that not all satanists are as stupid as this guy. I appoligize on behalf of all satanists for his conduct. I may not be a follower of the church of satan, but I simply felt it was important to attention everyone to this.

Kara - empty hand (originally Chinese hand) Te- the way.

You're a fucking delusional superstitious moron if you think Karate has anything to do with 'satan'.

There is literally nothing here that's true. Nothing. No two words come together and form a concept based in reality. This "Francis B." moron probably even got his own name wrong, and is actually named "Brian K." or something. Even so, it'd still be closer to reality than this... steaming heap of guano.

Bruce Lee did not invent martial arts. The rest is the stupidest bunch of gobbeldy-gook I've ever heard!

Satanists, Luciferians & other Left-Hand Pathers would laugh at this guy!

Heck, I LAUGH AT THIS GUY!

No, "kara" is "empty" and "te" is "hand." Bruce Lee didn't start karate, he started Jeet Kune Do.

Don't you just love it when people believe the lies they tell? The Schafly is strong in this one, minus the liberal hate-speech, and so forth.

"Kara–means ‘I surrender myself’ and Te’—means ‘to Zen Buddha.’"

Karate

'Karate is a martial art developed in the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan. It was developed partially from indigenous fighting methods called te (literally "hand"; Tii in Okinawan) and from Chinese kenpo'

Transl: 'Empty Hand'

Karaoke

'portmanteau of Japanese kara "empty", and okesutora "orchestra"'

Transl: 'Empty Orchestra'

You FAIL.

"There are 25 original styles of Karate’, each is named after Tibetan monks from where it originated. It was not started in Japan or by Bruce Lee as Hollywood would have you believe!"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karate

'Karate is a martial art developed in the Ryukyu Islands in what is now Okinawa, Japan.

You FAIL II.

"by Bruce Lee as Hollywood would have you believe!"

Fact: Bruce Lee created his own fluid, adaptive form of Kung Fu (rather different from Karate; Kung Fu/Wushu also incorporates various weapons): Jeet Kune Do. And 'Zen Buddha' (which is only practiced in Japan, not China)? Lee was an Atheist. You FAIL III, and you've struck out, Frankie-boy.

"Many of the low grunts and pronunciations of karate’s blows, blocks and screams of release have to be incorporated in pre-summoning certain spirits that frequent the same dimension and locality of the monks in the east and Satanic Temples world-wide."

(*Pretends to be interested in Frankie-boy's own grunts he 'believes' to be coherent speech*)

Yes, that's right, dear. (*Performs Patronise You no Jutsu; pats Frankie-boy on head*). Now you go back to your "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" cartoons dear, the adults are talking.

(And this from a Satanist fundie?! Even Aleister Crowley promoted self-learning; as did Anton LaVey, for fuck's sake!)

@Horsefeathers

"Is there some Big Book of Stupid Shit these people find things like this in?"



Cat (Danny John-Jules): 'Hey man, according to this, so many of your kind actually believed that a book of fairytales - called "The Bible" - was fact, because they said it was 'True', and an invisible sky fairy who 'wrote' it (but actually didn't; it was done so by ghost writers) says it is!'

Yep.

Karate was just 'te' or 'tii' (romanji is not exactly phonetic) originally, meaning "hand" in Okinawan and Okinawan Japanese. That's "hand" as in "hand-to-hand" combat.

It got called "karate" = "Chinese hand" because lots of the Okinawan nobility went to school in Fujian province in China and lifted a bunch of the local kung fu schools.

When Gichin Funakoshi was popularizing karate in Japan in the early 1900s, he changed it to "karate" = "empty hand" (pronounced the same but written differently in Japanese). This is because Funakoshi was a school teacher and wanted the meaning to be descriptive, and because sinophobia was very strong in Japan at the time and "Chinese hand" was bad marketing.

I learned this because when Funakoshi was an old man, he taught my karate teacher.

In other words, Francis B Fails History And Linguistics Forever

He also Fails Martial Arts Forever.

Vocalizations in combat ('kiai' in the Japanese vocabulary) serve three purposes: engaging the abdominal muscles to make the technique stronger, scaring the opponent, and making sure that you remember to breath. After a while, you can do the techniques just fine without making any unnecessary sound, and the exact sound made is irrelevant (there was one guy at my dojo for a while whose screams all sounded something like "eff-ewe").

Please hurry up and finish your ergot on rye sandwich. Your sentences still lack that complete sense of incoherency that would have told me right away that I was wasting my life reading them.

The yelling (ki-ai) forcefully expels the air from your lungs, allowing your muscles to contract harder and faster. No spirits necessary.

Bulls*it.

Bulls*it. Strike three, you're out.

Wow, so much wrong.

Zen Buddha is not a being. Zen is simpy the school of Buddhism, with the same Buddhas as others.
Forms of karate are not named after Tibetan monks. In fact, the names of forms of karate seem to be named after places and are all written in the Japanese syllabic alhabet - making some of them impossible to write phonetically or pronounce properly in other lanuages.
Verbs in Japanese come after both the subject and object, so your stated translation would literally make no sense.
Tibet and other parts of mainland Asia normally use different forms of martial arts.
Pre-summoning? Like opening lines of communication before you invite them up here?
Idiot.
