    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    First Matt, you are reading way too much in it, so relax and read the below explanation.

    1) I did not elect myself or was elected to a "TD-Czar".

    2) Yet I did had the power in all the events to decide who could come (which I never used in the last 4 EuroMega's) and do you want to know why:
    because to rent that facility I have to sign a waiver that made me the acting supervisor and it was my duty to uphold the conditions stated by the facility holder.
    Not complying to said conditions would make me responsable insurance wise in case of accidents.
    Without the approval of the Belgian Kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA organisation I can't obtain an additional insurance and the BKM2O will not approve of a Bullshido TD.
    So besides picking up the bill, I also put myself every year in a risk position.

    3) There are no "professional Martial Arts clubs" in Leuven (hell, there isn't one in the whole of Belgium), which means that all the training facilities are leased at an affordable rate from the city.

    Now how many facilities do you think that there are available in a city of 97000 persons, when I have to compete with
    - The Judo club of the Hachidan and Technical Director of the BJF
    - A 2nd Judo club
    - 3 different Muay Thai clubs
    - a BJJ club
    - 3 Aikido clubs
    - 2 FMA/JKD clubs
    - A boxing gym
    - several Karate clubs
    - A Sanda gym
    - Several Kung-Fu clubs
    - 2 Taekwondo/Hapkido clubs
    -...

    Let just say that beggars can't be choosers!

    4) For me a Gong Sau is a grudge match and I don't want one at events that I organise. The last years the focus has turned here on Bullshido from Throwdowns to Gong Sau and I don't feel that this is an improvement and for some wierd reason most of the EuroBullies (that I have met) are feeling the same way.

    So you set reasonable rules and expect people to follow them. Man, you know I like you but you're wrong here. You do not have the power to ban someone from a Bullshido TD. You can have the power to ban anyone you want from anything you organize in your own name, but not in everyone else's name. Bullshido is all of us.

    Wouldn't it be better to have this thing at one of those MA clubs? They're used to people getting punched.

    How is it NOT in his name? The only thing he uses is the term 'TD'.

    For the newer people here:



    Jordan is the black dude and JFS is the big white guy. If I were organizing a TD and JFS was coming, I would understand if people didn't want to attend, after all he's a violent, unstable racist who tries to assault people after he loses. As for me "banning" him personally, **** that noise. Who am I to do such a thing? No such power exists. And to be clear, Jordan is my ROOMMATE, and is keeping an eye on my son right now, while I am out of town. He's a very close friend, and JFS is a racist tool. So what? It's my choice to attend or not. You can't "ban" people.

    You're smarter than this. The EuroMega Throwdown, organized via threads on BS.net, hosted and attended exclusively (thus far) by Bullies, and resulting in tags awarded by request of said Bullies to the staff of BS.net is somehow NOT a Bullshido TD? LOLOL

    No MA club, not even a MMA club will let outsiders do a TD during their training hours because in that situation in case of accidents, their insurance will have to pay.

    Remember that all those clubs lease facility space from the city.
    You can have boxing from 18:00 till 19:30, than an Aikido club from 19:30 till 21:00 and a Wrestling club from 21:00 till 22:00.
    I have to lease a timeslot somewhere and at that moment I become the responsable for that club.
    This year I had to lease 5 hours on Saturday and 5 hours on Sunday, such timeslots aren't really lying around here.

    An invitational posted on BS.net, that uses their known terms. Non-BS members have been to TDs.


    Ofcourse there isn't a power to ban through BS.net. But a practical set up on the spot is very much in the hands of the organizer.

    Ridiculous example: If a Bullie shows up wearing only socks and wielding a shotgun, what would you do?
