    Indeed it is that bad, I have just watched the Kung Fu Cult video. It could be a troll job but a troll would want the comments.

    I think there is more behind this than trolling or propoganda. There is a serious level of resentment/anger underlying these videos. Also, the need for anonymity, the constant theme of abuse and, most tellingly:

    I sensed the same thing, but I only watched one video. I suspect that something reprehensible happened to the author at the hands of an instructor.

    In the past 2 months or so, a number of plain posters, printed out on standard computer paper, have been taped up in in my city with messages such as: "Google Martial Arts Sex Scandal", "Google Martial Arts Pedophilia", "Google Martial Arts Brain Injury", and so on. I wonder if this is part of the same movement?

    Could very well be. I wonder who the Massachusetts instructor who testified in this one was?

    or perhaps:

    "The brain is very similar to Jell-o. It is very gelatinous."

    ****. With arguments like that, people will be surely leaving martial arts schools in droves. Instructors, sell your gyms and put a resume on Monster. The end is nigh.

    I think its worth noting that some of what's being said by that robot is true, about plenty of shitty martial artists. So far though, I haven't heard or seen anything that suggests they have a worthwhile opinion about good martial arts.
