    As one of the new contributors just announced himself with his nickname, I thought it might be humorous to hear "what you have been called" out there (non-profane) ;)... and why it might have stuck.

    Going back many years... mine was Robocop, and my wife still calls me that once in a while.
    It has to do with the mechanics of how I move...
    Even though I very flexible, I tend to move fairly rigidly... always a distinct stopping and starting point... not a "flow" kind of guy, generally. Though speed has never been an issue for me...
    I could never dance to save my life.
    More discrete than integrated; digital than analog; etc.

    So tell us yours now...

    I've been called Wolf Legs (long story), G.I. Joe, and Liu Kang (I like just a healthy splash of flashiness)

    Mine was Van Damn for some strange reason, I think it was to do with the fact I did Kick boxing and that I speak French.:rolleyes::D

    I've had a variety of nicknames, one of the funniest was at work "That dude is like a friggin' spider monkey up there!" The coolest was The One, dubbed by my buddy after I pulled a parkour-esque two-step leap onto the bar into a twisting diving leap catch of a bar stool that a guy launched at his brother's back while he was beating a dude down (no one could hear an effing thing with the music so loud). And also because within a day of that I pulled another leaping save and yanked a kid out of the self-feeder chipper chute when he got flipped onto the tree that was being chewed up. I was officially "The One" after that...

    Got the nickname 10man in College after a weird night out. I have a multitude of nicknames. So many that I rarely answer to my given name, because I don't realize they are talking to me.

    Man this sucks. I don't have a nickname. Or even a cool online name :( although I got a friend who sounds like Arnie when he speaks English. I call him the savatinator....

    We can help you with a new handle. We just look at what you do or have done, like calling you "Roadhouse" (Swayze flick) from working as a bouncer. Or you can get proactive, next time you're sparring hit someone repeatedly with some jabs and be like "That's right! It's the Jackhammer, baby!" and christen yourself...:ROFLMAO:

    I think if I called myself "Jackhammer" peeps would call me MC hammer in the sly! But it's a good idea!
