Stephen Oliver's Million Dollar McDojo
Stephen Oliver and his "Mile High Karate" franchise are clear cut bullshido. It's a wonder he's still around. His material consists of nothing but kata where the meanings are never analyzed and watered down, non-functional combinations from several different styles. Not to mention the outrageous fees ($300 - $1000 a month).
As if this weren't enough, he obviously values the martial arts and his instructors very little as in the book
Wealth Attraction for Entrepeneurs by Dan Kennedy where Oliver guest writes an "expert" essay:
"In retrospect, my early success was almost completely due to recognizing that it was most important to become an excellent marketer of martial arts lessons, and least important to be a 'master of the martial arts'."
Oliver also goes on to state the ease of hiring low wage, easily trained (as little as 6 weeks), and easily replaced instructors.
I have seen what little there is on Oliver on the forums and thought it was time to really shed some light on this guy.
