This makes me sad
I was at wrestling practise one time, and there was this big fat kid, I havn't seen him since. I think because the work outs are too much for him..
Anyways, he was throwing these roundhouse kicks...sooo shitty..they were almost TKD roundhouse kicks...
Anyways I began asking him about martial arts...We talk a bit about it. He says people tell him he should do muay thai, I tell him yes too,(even though I'm not sure he could take it), but what sucks is that we don't have muay thai nearby.
Anyways he mentions something, and then I say what? He says oh nevermind, you probably won't beleive me.
I say "No, go on".
And then he starts talking about....NINJITSU! Ugh this is horrible. I'm like what? He says he reads books and stuff, I'm like name some authors, He starts to say Ashi...I catch on saying, Ashida kim?..then almost knowing before he says the next i blurt out..Stephen Hayes?...They are all fake.
I told him how they are frauds and how Ashida kim is a fat american named chris hunter, and how he chose a japanese first name and a korean last name out of ignorance and the guy goes defensive talking about how he knows it to be right....
Should I ignore the kid? Or try and make a difference?
I'm thinking of carrying a little peice of paper with "www.bullshido.com" on it in my wallet and handing the piece of paper to him next time I see him...
The stupidity of people amazes me...
Whats more is how stupid I used to be. (and still am)

Oh, but you can TOTALLY learn ninjitsu! When my boyfriend was in high school he signed up for a ninjitsu class offered at the school (by a 5th dan ninja, no less!), but he quit shortly after the instructor almost got his thumb cut off by a student. The instructor brought a real sword to a HIGH SCHOOL, and told one of the students to try to hit him. He was, of course, showing an effective technique of empty-handed sword defense.... *snort* A few years later my bf ran into a woman who knew him and said "oh, he's off in the woods again with his karate friends". Apparently, before he was a 5th dan ninja (*giggle*) he was an orderly at a mental hospital and a guard at the local prison. That must have been, like, the PERFECT place to try out his real ultimate ninja power and flip out and kill people cause like, the crazies and the crooks aren't gonna do anything about it....
As for your friend, lead him to the higher path... It's all fun and games until someone loses a thumb.

I used to always tease a student about using his hooves during grabs and throws.

Did anyone else see Stephen Hayes on the History Channel? It was this modern day Ninja thing, Hayes had to infiltrate a secure facility and kill a protected person. It was really silly. He did get to the protected person after annoying the guards for a couple of hours pretending to be a technician but he was grabbed when he tried to attack.

The guards were Navy SEALs. Or at least that's what it said. I thought it was a good example of how REAL Ninja didn't just go around slashing people like they do today. Today's ninjas need to learn some manners. =/

Poor guy all you can do is talk to him and show him the light. If he wont listen then send him here and we can help him. If he wont do that then just enjoy his idocy and ask him questions and such.
There isnt much you can do with someone who wont listen to reason.

You DO need buisness cards.
you should have a "Special supporting member" where you pay extra but get some resources like cards and a t shirt or something.
did I mention he learns from books?
