LOL! MMA?! Are they seriously advertising themselves as MMA?
OOOh OOhh! I want to go and learn jumping spinning back roundhouse kicks!
That will make me even more STR33T LE4TH4L (puts on "war face") AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!
he's going to teach MMA using Chi? I love the world sometimes.
shouldn't this be in trollshido?
MMA is a sport, not a martial art. "Mixing" serveral 'martial arts' doesn't equal MMA.
I wonder how many of those guys are members of The World Sokeship Association or something like it. What a Mcdojothon.
And besides, 7th Dan? Pshaww...
We've got dozens upon dozens of 10th Dans over here already.
NONE of our members are in the world sokeship,which is basically "a pat each other on the back club".
we do have friends in that group like grandmaster Nenow however.
I am amazed at how knowlegable you all are at something you have never seen or done.
Don't talk the talk, come to the seminar and walk the walk.
I'm not even gonna go into the 10th dan situation in America debate, as so many of my American sensei friends are even embarrassed by it. Even I was offered the opportunity to buy one by the American Jujitsu federation, or Association or whatever for $450.00.
I have offered the opportunity for you to see and learn some good martial arts, take the piss if you want. but dont claim to be mma's if your so closed minded and sarcastic.
64% of instructors who tried to join the BKJA last year were turned down. we aint interested in money, we aint interested in bullshit and bought grades, we aint interested in cyberstudents.
when you stop thinking you know it all, you'll be ready to learn more
When your ready for Instructors who teach, and are respected all around the world including the States, and not JUST the States, we'll be there.
soory if i'm sounding as cocky as you guys but hey, I opened a hand in friendship and YOU spat in it.
your mind is like a parachute, no good if it does'nt open
