    This is why I hate telling non martial artists I do a TMA. I get lumped in with these clowns.

    Unreal...I mean, good lord. I don't even see a sweat on ANYONE.

    EDIT: I just watched the testing videos... I don't know why I'm wasting my time losing 30 pounds, getting bruised and sore on a weakly basis and learning how much I suck at sparring. I could walk in here and could just be handed one for dancing around smiling for a camera.

    It's has the words Blackbelt and Academy in it, I expect its funded by the EFC or similar, looks like their brand. One of the main things that happens in those places is that the students are seen as clients/customers/contract holders, and part of the contract is that you will get them to a blackbelt. So you end up with a situation, where, eventually, everyone who signs up will, if they continue training, get a blackbelt.

    The training is typically like that as well, martial aerobics more or less, a club I was at that went down that path, and was the reason for me leaving, I believe has now dropped all major throws from its jujutsu since there is too much risk of hurting someone.

    Go figure.

    Oh but wait...

    I present to you SparX, their "Sport Martial Arts Programme That Takes The Guesswork Out of Sparring And Teaches You The “Intelligent Sparring Techniques” That All The Top Competitors Use To Win Championships!"

    Hmm, their primary method of attack seems to be to lunge in wildly, off balance, with their eyes squeezed closed and their chin held aloft. A clever ruse perhaps, to lull their opponent into thinking they're complete fucking idiots? Sneaky bastards...

    I am a grappler and I think I can do this movement better then their blackbelts.

    This is as funny as watching the fat people go into exercise stores to buy The Shake Weight, and fat loss supplements thinking they'll get into shape.

    Dude, that thing is awesome. It legitimizes my justification of masturbation as exercise.
