What that poster must mean is that demeaning or undermining a competitors school or style in an agressive or personal way would be outside of the typical expectation for someone serious about martial arts...really you have never heard of anything like that in 20 years?
You are trying to bait someone so that you can work out your insecurities and show how smart you are...awesome character!!
No issue Kfighter ...we can work it out. We are good. Respect to you.
Not that I really matters but I only got 1640. Of course I searched it as a phrase. Plus I recieved this message on the second page:

When searching for an official "martial arts code of conduct" I got 73 results, most to the same book.
The closest thing I could find was an article written by Bruce Patterson at Kuk Sool Won of Richmond.
I would question Mr. Patterson's expertise in the subject. His lack of sources and credentials concern me.
Is that what you were referring to? I can't seem to find the official code anywhere. Which governing body created it?

in regards to both wild wills and huge's comments about the martial arts code of conduct. Ya'll can both suck it! You are missing the point of the martial arts concept and need to practice some inner searching within yourselves to get to that kind of level of understanding.
Do you see the irony in your statement? I do.

Edit: Out of curiosity, which comments of mine were problematic?
2nd Edit: Back to the topic at hand, I haven't seen a link to either the school or the fees for training there. Could I see those too please?

Are you serious? You don't understand what I am talking about?
Take the quotes off the phrase...who's code do you want. I will send it to you. Not to mention the numerous ancient texts on the matter....you must be kidding.
Dude, stop preaching. Martial arts isnt church. Theres no code of conduct. You sound ridiculous.
You see, the martial arts world is a very fragmented, split up place. What is accepted at one school is not by another school.

Secondly some of the items of any such code of conduct can have a political agenda. Let us say that such code includes obediance. Does that mean one does not question a particular masters pricing schedule or his fondness for hitting on the female students of the class? How about his refusal to answer where he obtained a particular technique?
Now you may never have seen such problems in your school but a search of Bullshido will reveal multiple such allegations against various "masters".
Which reminds me, why as an American, am I supposed to call some guy who teaches martial arts my "master" instead of "coach". I thought involuntary servitude had ended in these colonies:)
So in conclusion many people at Bullshido, including myself, do not take such Martial Arts codes seriously.
Or maybe you refer to the code of the Samuri which would incidently still allow me to abuse people who are of lower social class, and require obediance to an Emperor who fortunately does not exist in the United States. Is that what you are thinking of?
