    Re read the thread, I said if the majority of the advance student can not adequately defend themselves should they get sued. I did not say if one particular student gets his ass kicked.

    Example in the 90's there was an issue where korean pilots kept crashing.
    There were 5 crashes in two years. In response the canadian goverment banned all korean flights from canadian air space.

    If a school is advertising self defence then a significant portion of its student should
    be able to defend hemselves

    None of my students can prevent Korean planes from crashing. I think one has an umbrella though.

    To the OP: This is why Bullshido exists. We call bullshit, and slowly word spreads to those who aren't even directly related to the site, till conventional wisdom takes over in terms of what is and is not legitimate training.

    Guess what? If one person does then they are telling the truth.
    Oh and Tom addressed it, but please stop with the strawman arguments.

    if the FDA is conducting clinical trials for a new cancer drug,
    and the drug only works 20% of the time. The FDA will not approve the drug for
    market and any doctor caught prescribing the drug will be illegal.

    The Op poses an interesting idea. A school claiming to teach self defense should produce students that can defend themselves. I agree with that.

    However, suing over the issue is retarded. Schools would find loop holes, and many already have. They don't advertise self defense they promote self confidence and other hippy-esque benefits. If the OPs "law" went into effect, legitimate schools that do offer self defense wouldn't claim it to protect their asses.

    If your gene pool is responsible for your lack of critical thinking, could you be sued for breeding?

    MMA is terrific and all, but I've never heard of it saving anyone from a gang rape type situation. Meditate on that. Rape.

    Dude you are two for two with strawman arguments now. Stop with the logical fallacies.

    Here let me help because, you are going down the road of fail. FDA is REGULATED martial arts are not.

    No, all they have to do is produce is one. All that will happen is with the first lawsuit you'll get a caveat called RESULTS MAY VARY.
