I'm not quite sure what you mean with your last sentence, I assume you are just missing an "is" in front of the "it" and am responding to that.

That's why I quoted it.
(there's a difference between your interpretation and what might actually have been said..)
a student mentioned it while bragging about how deadly their WingZun is and that no-one can defeat them. Like "yeah and you know, there's one thing our teacher isn't even allowed to teach us. The Stone-Form, and the Dautremay forbid him to teach it to us, because it is too deadly.".
No idea about the stone form, maybe it is just too deadly to teach a newbie :) Or, maybe it's a little more advance for some people..
What is the 'stone-form', do you know? If not, then how can you comment on it?
that's the problem.
I've been to a few day seminars that teach gun, knife and stick defence (maybe 6-8 hours for the day one, which is a good amount of time IMO). If you have a decent background in a MA, then it's easier to pick up the techniques/concepts. Even seeing people with very little or no baqckground can still grasp the ideas and play around with them. Will they be better off than they were before the seminar? Maybe. As long as it's presented in a way that doesn't build faulse confidence.
If the attacker has _any_ idea on how to use a knife you need ****-big skills to defend yourself against that weaponless. Of course, if the attacker is an idiot...
No one can dodge a bullet and no one's skin is thick enough to deflect a knife, but that doesn't mean there aren't tools that can be learned to defend against weapons.
The "Dautremay-Stickfighting" course is one hour per week, or two hours per week (if you want to travel 40km just for that hour of training), and does not only consist of weaponless defense against a knife but also against a stick and wielding the stick yourself. So you don't even get NEAR a full hour of knife-teaching, just impossible.
It would be foolich to think otherwise. And, IMO, depending on how much info is being shown, sure 6 hours or all-day is more than enough to get the general ideas across.
everything not explicitely labeled "I don't know if this is true" or similar, I consider as dead-sure.
Still, all I read is your conjecture, assumptions, stories you've 'heard' etc.
If i had any person to back me up, I had already done it, without posting first.
Sure, it might be a good idea to go in and experience it for yourself. But to knock something first, or call it "Bullshido" without have hany real first-hand experience or any idea what you're talking about is kinda pointless isn't it?
Now, this is a lot different than what I heard in your first post,

If you are genuinely interested in checking them out, what kind of approach are you using by coming here and calling them "bullshido" first? What kind of message would you be sending them if they read this prior to you going in there? I don't mean this in a negative way, but since you claim you 'suck', have no skill, etc, how can you speak from experience for your claims of Bullshido? You can't.
Why not just go in and see what they are teaching, then come back and give yor opinion?
If you are posting here just for the sole reason so you 'can contribute' (as you put it), I'd have to call Bullshido on you!
1) I don't remember putting it here for that "sole reason" or saying I did it just for that.
2) even if: how would that make me bullshido. Iam curious.
