    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Almost joined a karate place affilliated with Dillman Karate assoc

    I was going to train there until I read somewhere on here to stay away from anything Dillman. So I decided not to train. But why stay away from anyhting affilliated with Dillman. I mean, I understand that hes the no touch knockout fraud, but at the same time does that make the whole art of ryukyu kempo a bad art to train? Why should I stay away from karate people affilliated with Dillman Karate Assoc?

    I told you that you think too much. I always wonder why people are willing to compromise their values. I sometimes think it's because of lack of values.

    This is completely up to you and your goals. If you want to train there and you have fun that's all that counts. Just don't fool yourself into believing it's anything more than what it is.

    If you were going to invest with an investment firm and you knew ahead of time that one of their funds was a pyramid scheme would you still let them handle your money? Would you invest in a firm associated with them?

    Anyone associated with Dillman should know as well as you or any of us here a BS that he is making money by selling a blatantly worthless product. Given his willingness to defraud students, and his affiliates'' readiness to associate with someone who is willing to defraud, how can you possibly trust anything you are taught by this group of people? Anything beyond the most basic MA kicking and punching skills is suspect.

    If you want to learn self-defense, start by defending your hard-earned money.
