    Wola-Do: Crap or no?

    My Recreation Complex is holding classes for this African martial art. It seems like a large thing, at least for a small town like mine, so I'm going to do a little detective work. Classes are beginning quite soon, possibly tomorrow. I'll be in touch. Any information about this alleged martial art would be appreciated.


    I also plan to make good on my promise to investigate the To-Shin-Do school where I live during the summer.

    Krotty/TKD

    Looks like typical Krotty and TKD. Nothing about it looks anything like the indigenous African wrestling arts I have seen in various documentaries and articles. I think there are some African stick arts too.

    Of course, Africa is a continent, not a country. So, there can be a lot of variation, but looks like karate gi and breaking boards and going on about how their "king" will bring peace to the universe, right after he brings levity to your wallet.

    Bullshido to the Nth degree

    Nothing, repeat Nothing, about this stands up.

    The references to African history are BS. The techniques and uniforms are recycled TKD/Krotty. Everything about this is crap.

    I'll post more details later if someone wants them. I just don't have time right now.

    If it has a "do" at the end and it isn't a korean or japanese, then it's probably crap.
