    GKR Instructor willing to have a conversation with you...

    Hi guys,

    I have done a lot of reading on this site about the style in which I train in and have noticed that not a single Go Kan Ryu (henceforth "GKR") Instructor has posted to answer any question's you all seem to have.

    I have decided to personally attempt to take some tension away and answer any questions you have for me and the style I represent.

    Before you get started into ripping in on what I believe is a system that has its flaws, please keep in mind that I am volunteering my time to try and make a positive difference. If you choose to take this opportunity to try and rip on me for everything you have against the School, I will simply walk away and never return.

    I have no interest in fighting here, but more a chance to give you all a better understanding of something I'm sure you would like to know more about.

    A little about me;

    - I have been training since I was 13
    - I am now 20 (going on 8 years of training)
    - Recently appointed Sho Dan (1st Dan Blackbelt) as of Nov. 2010.

    I only ask that we all be civil and will make the most of this :-)

    So do you feel that your organisations practices have been misrepresented here on Bullshido? Please cite specific examples if so.

    I believe that there is an overall feeling against GKR on these forums. I believe it is hard to base these feelings on certain examples of "bad experiences" after living and growing so much with a style in the last 7 years.

    So you agree with the facts that have been stated, you just don't like the tone?

    No, I wouldn't agree with that.

    I believe that in certain "developing" locations a decision has been made to compromise the grade of the Instructor to grow the Style/Business which I do not agree with.

    I also believe that this a minority of the styles teachings. For example, my Regional Instructor is 15+ years experienced, on his way to 4th Dan and Black Belts make up the majority of Instructors.

    Okay, first this is Bullshido. We longtime members don't mind if "tension" exists. As a matter of fact we enjoy conflict and do not "recognize" that there is some preferred state of existance where everyone should get along and no one should say anything bad about a particular martial art. If you want that experience you can go to Martial Arts Planet or read the book "I'm Okay, You're Okay". Personally I prefer the works of Dennis Leary myself.

    I'll save you some time, since I've literally encountered or dealt with hundreds of complaints that boil down to "Bullshido is being too mean!"

    1) You link to a post, or posts, which you say contain a specific factual assertion(s).
    2) You discuss why such factual assertion(s) is or are incorrect, and provide proof if you wish to be taken seriously.
    3) People then argue with you.
    4) If you offer reliable facts and convincing arguments, GKR looks like a better martial art.
    5) If you don't, GKR probably keeps its current image on the board.

    Please begin.

    I personally would like a summation of the the current view of GKR as I have not really paid attention and for continuity purposes would think it would be advantageous to have that on this thread.

    Hopefully someone will because, I am not re-reading the various MABS threads that were conveniently side-stepped in the creation of this thread.
