I talked to a Bullshido kid
At a Chinese party at home, there was a 13 year-old kid that had been taking WTF TKD for 2 years, and was going to test for his black belt in 2  months.
He mentioned some good things:
* They are taught that TKD is not good for self defense, and that if you are attacked you should just run, and if you have to, kick your attackers as they run you down.
* He said they spar at every class, and that as a high ranking belt, he sometimes gets to take on 2 white belts.
* Even though it's WTF, he says they are told to keep their hands up, and if anyone has their hands down, you get to go over and try to kick them in the head.
* He said he was interested in martial arts, not just TKD. I tried to tell him that he should look into wrestling in high school, to understand some of the holes in TKD. He said he was way to skinny and not built for wrestling, to which I replied, any martial art is about skill and practice, not body type (although he has a point).
* He understood that TKD kicks were for speed, and not very strong. I couldn't get him to learn how to do a MT roundhouse because he was too excited to show me all the kicks in his arsenal, which were all very weak, although that could be because he only weighed 90 lbs or so.
So mostly, he had a handle on what TKD was and wasn't.
But the bullshido parts:
* He was really reverent of his instructor, who was president of the "Martial Arts Organization" in Korea. Unfortunately, that name is too vague to search for. The kid said the guy was a 8th dan, which shouldn't even exist in TKD, and that he was the only 8th dan in North Carolina (where the party was). Nothing wrong with being a 8th dan, but the kid made no mention of the man's skills or teaching ability, just the rank, as though he were in awe of it.
* He is testing for his black belt soon.
