    10 Years of Bullshido

    Like many stories of corruption and intrigue, this one starts with a dirty motel room and a woman getting paid to do something unsavory to a perverted man.

    But unlike many stories of that genre, this one didn't involve a priest or a congressman, or any person one would expect to wrap themselves in a cloak of moral standards. No, this started with a female fighter, getting paid to do some light, grappling-related bondage on a weirdo who kept a blog about his adventures.

    The thing about those relatively 'early' days of MMA, was that there were only so many websites discussing MMA, Jiu-jitsu, or fighters. Heck, there were only a small fraction of websites in general, compared to what we have today, and even fewer decent discussion forums.

    This was in the days before The Ultimate Fighter brought the sport into people's living rooms, back when a guy wearing a Tapout shirt could actually tap someone out. Fans of the sport were largely people who trained in the sport, and consequently there were only a few degrees of separation between a guy in the stands, and the guy in the cage.

    And it was in this adolescent time of the sport that a handful of fans stumbled onto the blog of a creepy guy detailing his experiences getting man-handled by a woman. This wouldn't have been anything out of the ordinary on the Internet, even then, except that someone tried to cover it up.

    And they would have succeeded, if it weren't for the fact that this pissed off that handful of people.

    If you haven't yet heard this story, ask some of the original members of this site. They'll fill you in, in much greater detail. But for those who've joined along the way, just keep in mind that this whole project began because a small group of people didn't put up with bullshit, lies, cover-ups, and all the other nonsense that's kept the Martial Arts world on the edge of credibility and on the fringes of culture.

    So this is a thanks, from me, to you, for helping to stand as a counterbalance against the freaks, frauds, and the fakes. 10 years from now, let's see what else we've accomplished.

    I could, but then I wouldn't feel as justifiably indignant when i told other posters to use the search function. Also, of the members listed I think I've only seek JKDChick post since I've been here.

    what's up with olga b?

    I would say that I'm looking forward to where I'll be in 10 years. But after the brain injury thread, I'm pretty sure I won't know who I am.

    Thanks a lot!

    Wow! Ten years! I wonder how many martial arts frauds, fakers, and exaggerators have been exposed here on Bullshido over all that time. How many major fraud-busts have gone down? Members of the public protecting the public. Huzzah!

    So the site got started when somebody called the internet police over someone indulging their fetish?
