    Who is this guy? Just reading a discussion board, and this guy posts his resume. 26 year old, supposedly the grandmaster of his CapThaiKido. Sounds like bullshido, but here's the post. Any comments?

    Fucking hell how can someone be a 26 year old Grandmaster and still not know the meaning of a paragraph?

    Edit: Bruce Lee's movies came out in the late 70s. I sincerely doubt the whole "growing up with Bruce Lee movies" thing. Seems trivial, and it's possible, but something's not right.

    Edit2: Seems to have done a lot in his life. At 26. Right. Compares himself to Bruce Lee and Ueshiba. Fucking moron. I hate this dude already.

    I do NOT understand why every dickhead on the streets these days decides he's qualified enough to invent a new system "encompassing the principles of BLABLABLA". It's not a new system. There's nothing original in it. You've just taken **** from 3 different MAs and put them together in some random order, and suddenly decided it was different and radical enough to form a new way of fighting.

    BJJ for it's time was a new way of fighting. It was original because no MA at the time focused on winning a fight while the fighter was on his back. JKD was revolutionary because it first advocated true MMA cross-training. Kyokushin was original because it advocated full-contact kumite and extreme training methods. Muay Thai is original because of it's 8 body weapons philosophy.

    Putting together a bunch of moves from different MAs does not a new fighting style make. Unless they've all figured out something that the other MA's haven't, there's nothing original about them. They're just bastardized martial arts.

    This says it all...a mixture of "Capoeira, Muy Thai and Aikido".

    This has to be some be some kind of joke or Bullshido troll. If Bullshido really wants to pursue this, I can cover his claims in S. Fla.

    All I can say is wow. Wow to whichever forum member put that together. You have somehow managed to capture the essence of Bullshido and contain it for other to marvel at.

    There are too many franchised “McDojos” out there.
    This get a chuckle out of anyone else? A 26-year old grandmaster of an art combining three popular styles claiming he's tired of McDojos?
