    I'm interested in that too.

    Meantime, in my case, I asked my guro for his blessing. My method had diverged significantly from what he taught me (and his, from what he'd been taught) and I couldn't legitimately call it that anymore.

    Don't get too excited, the closest they get to actually getting laid are their circle-jerks.

    Ever notice there are no fake female 10th dan grandmasters?

    Why is that? Is it because the entire phenomena is tied to male braggartry, like lying about your job, income, social status, or military service?

    SO, yeah, I see a lot of similarity with the 10th dan grandmasters and the "pickup artist".

    Outside of Tae Yun Kim, I can't think of any, and from the discussions about her that have taken place here, her qualifications and motivations are similarly suspect.

    I'll throw in a free instructional video and pamphlets so you don't have to waste any time in the gym.

    By "free", I mean $70.

    I didn't ask permission, it was just given to me. One of my "Older Brothers" came to visit me and he told me that a lot of the other "Older Brothers" and our Sifu have been keeping tabs on me.

    This was the same person who instituted an actual belt system in our style. I told him I'd really like to bring our system to the main stream to be competitive in the "MMA world". He said sifu had already given me his blessing. I asked him if he'd come in and make the announcement to my students and he did.

    Coincidentally it was the same year I joined Bullshido.

    Why is that?
    Because when women want to get laid they just put on yoga pants and get drunk?
