    WoW! all this time I've found grappling skilled opponents to be so difficult when it turns out all I really needed was a few magic moves and they would just roll over for me!

    I'm so stupid for not studying aikido. It can handle anything. Anything I tell you!

    Sorry, that's at least partially my fault.

    I wonder how many Judo/BJJ classes would be needed for their delusion to be shattered.

    What exactly happened in this infamous MAP war? Is there an archived post somewhere or something?

    At the time MAP was run by a TKD mom that got very upset when people disagreed with her or were mean. She was overweight and often ban Bullshido members accounts for pointing out the fact.

    At the same time I was telling people in the Ninjutsu forum they should be sparring and a few Bullshido members came to support me. Everyone that supported me was accused of being a Duplicate account of mine. Most of the threads ended up as:

    Ninja: We don't need to spar because I know what will work in a fight
    Plasma: I disagree, Live training is a necessary part of training
    Ninja Mod: Plasma, if you aren't going to add to the conversation I am going to ban you
    Plasma: I am adding, the OP's assertion is wrong
    Ninja Mod: *PERMANENT BAN*

    After this happened to several Bullshido's members after me, they locked down the Ninjutsu forum and since been treated with Kids gloves as not to break their Ninja delusion.

    "(Per se the attacker was of a similar build to you, perhaps a bit larger)"

    From the original post in the MAP thread. It makes me angry. When per se is misused to mean "as such" I kind of get it and still catch myself doing it but using it in place of "for example"? There is no excuse, just none. Knowing that someone out there uses per se so completely incorrectly and practices ninjutsu actually offends me.

    Phrost was banned from MAP for using dirty language and having a strong opinion.

    Bullshido's opinion that live training and sparring is necessary in training for combat and self defense situations. An opinion that is non-negotiable. This "strong" opinion is against the the majority of MAP posters and mods. While it's ok to disagree with them at first, they expect you to come around to their way of thinking or at least respect their way is valid. If you don't you are banned.

    MAP doesn't ban for bad language; it censors bad language. Phrost got banned for arguing with MAP staff about being censored. I think some of MAP's rules are pretty silly, but there's really no question that he was breaking them.

    No. Phrost got banned for going around the "censor" with creative spelling.

    Which is explicitly against MAP's TOS. And then he argued with staff about it.

    I get Phrost's (and others') beef with MAP. MAP would rather its members were polite than honest and it's very heavy-handed about protecting everyone's feelings, sometimes to the point of stifling good conversations and/or defending some pretty silly beliefs. That's why I don't spend much time around there anymore.
