I am new to posting here, but i've been reading for quite some time, and am active on other martial arts forums.
so i've been reading alot about you guys trying to denounce other martial artists and instructors. the whole time i'm reading posts like "yeah, well I would kick that guy's ass", or "if he did that too me I'd do so and so" and im thinking: what the hell is your problem?
in order for you to denounce other martial artists and schools shouldn't you be TRAINING and making yourself a good martial artist before you go out and try to uncover the bullshit in martial arts?
i'm seeing well researched posts about some no name fuckers like yourselves trying to discredit instructors(who might deserve it or not), but at the same time WHO THE **** ARE YOU?? who made you, the no-name, anonymous internet martial artist the judge of what is "real" and what is not in the martial arts world?
In my opinion in order to root out the charlatans and businessmen in the martial arts, "true" martial arists need to stick together and learn from each other. AND spread the real martial arts to the world.
there is no point in showing people what is wrong, you have to show them what is right, by example.
oh.. and no i'm not some disgruntled guy who you guys tried to discredit. well except for asia, he hates my guts ;)
for the record: i train at gracie barra, brasilia. although my original art, my background, is kung fu.
