    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Should a person who can't even PRONOUNCE the word "karate" be allowed to teach it?

    How fucking hard is it to say the word correctly anyway? You've been operating your "Kuh-rotty" school for 10 years and you still can't even pronounce a simple 6 letter word the right way...wouldn't you be embarrased?

    I know Americans who don't speak a single word of Spanish but when they see a brown guy with the name "Jesus" not one of them hails him as the son of God.

    I still stumble over "sasae-tsuri-komi-ashi" every now and then....
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I wonder why you would get a weird look for? Are you supposed to pronounce things the wrong way on PURPOSE? Does anyone one else here think its somehow the right thing to do; pronounce words whatever way you choose because you can't take the 5 seconds to learn to say it correctly?

    When Chinese people come here and talk funny we ride the **** out of them

    Ohhhhhh you wah fwy wice? Rose pok or vegabew? Ecca rowl?

    But I bet they can say the name of the food they're selling pretty crystal clear and you cant tell me ANYONE has ever had a problem understanding them when it comes to the bill man. Crystal fucking clear because its simple words and its their job.

    Its disgusting that a person teaches an art form rich in history and tradition and he doesn't even know how to pronounce the damn thing.

    I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn

    No its "Kuh-Rotty". The "Kuh" sound, done strong from the diaphram, is what makes it sound so intelligent.

    i got a cousin that pronounces "shotokan" as "shadow-kahn".

    personally, i think "shadow-kahn" sounds so bad-ass it makes my spine explode...
