    Why do people market themselves like this? I just don't get it. Most legit people just tell you what they teach and give you a competition or similar track record. Marketing like this screams BS to me even if they look like they could be legit.

    I think I gave my anecdote before about training with another black belt (Judo) for several months,mostly groundwork,in which I thought I was making progress against him (he was quite good, but I was no slouch..). The last time we trained together (he was moving to another state), we rolled for about 45 minutes, in which time he pinned and/or submitted me at least 20 times, if not more.

    Yes. That section has been alluded to twice, and both times I am left certain that no such encounter ever took place. It must take a lot of effort to keep those goalposts in motion though.

    On one hand, yes, on the other the guy could've quit at anytime to lessen his beating. His ego kept him going though so he got what he was essentially asking for.

    A piece that begins humbly enough:

    As a result of sitting here night after night discrediting everything the modern martial artist believes in, I've undoubtedly caused a lot of anger and made a lot of enemies.
    This is one of the more partisan essays, referencing next the "displeasure of working out with someone who had non-traditionalism on the brain".

    The fundamental opinion in this essay is that "martial modernists" think the way they do because of their ego. Again it appears the author has encountered quite a few naysayers and in fact quotes several we're all familiar with here:

    They'd often respond with, "You can't use stances in a real fight," or "You're never going to be able to use those fancy high kicks on the street," or "Traditional martial arts aren't versatile enough for real fighting," or "Traditional techniques might look good, and they may even have power, but it's hard to hit a real fighter with them," or "Traditional martial arts are a thing of the past," or my all time favorite, "Because mixed-martial arts is better."
    The author then goes on to defend stances, high kicks, etc.

    During his defense of a range of traditional practices he views as superior to the "modernist" agenda, he claims:

    it remains a fact that all core traditional systems contain every plausible phase of punching, kicking, trapping, and wrestling in their entirety. This also means that every possible movement and position has been thoroughly accounted for, examined, and worked out to suit the most pressing applications and situations.
    From there again there are defense made of various traditional practices, with many instances of partisan "traditionalist vs. modernist" comparisons, including at least one accusation of "pure ignorance".

    The essay finishes with another self-quotation:
    " 'Like a concert pianist who is forced to watch a hopeless child bang away on a toy piano, that is how traditional martial artists view their successors' - Allan Ondash"
