Wich would be the most sensible part of the demo.

This appears to be a different rule set, without the constant breaks in action
It seems they use two rulesets. The first clip resembles International Taekwondo Federation (ITF) rules and the second seems to follow World Taekwondo Federation (WTF) rules.
How do they compare to your typical TDK place?
You'll note he already gave himself an escape clause: "Others im told have been scouted"

Weak appeal to authority. 20 years of MA experience only applies when you tell us what it is otherwise, it is an untrustworthy anecdote.
I used his results as an example of a Kyuki-do practitioner. Kyuki-do is a blend of alot of different teachings. Jeff Curran comes and hosts seminars at Kyuki-do schools. He even has taken some of it and uses it in his school. So telling me Kyuki-do has crap martial artists isn't going to fly with me. I will defend it. I have 20 years in other martial arts and gladly train in Kyuki-do as it fills holes in my knowledge.
Oh and it is "diss." Don't screw up spelling my people's slang.
This is my last post as its apparent this board it around to dis others schools so you can feel better about your own. (Insert middle finger here)
Wow, the first time I look at bullshido in a year, and something pops up that I can actually comment on!
I started MA training at a kyukido school around 2002, I believe, and stuck with it for about 4 1/2 years before finally getting fed up with the AKF.
Unfortunately, I think I started right at the beginning of a trend toward full-on mcdojo-ness. During my time, the powers that be added a new belt rank (to get more $ from tests, one would think), put out an official text-book thingy that you were heavily encouraged to buy for around $50, if I recall correctly, and started pushing people through the belt ranks a lot quicker, with the result being that you all of a sudden started to see a bunch of chubby 12-14 year old black belts running around. It was like I could see the quality of martial artist produced decrease before my eyes.
The other thing the AKF does that I find sort of upsetting is to give ranks in arts other than kyukido. For example, I have a black belt in judo from them that I would put at maybe 1/4 the value of the same rank from the usja--gauged by the ass-whooping I took when I competed in a real usja tourney. I think they've also recently started giving out ranks in hapkido and jiu-jitsu. At the risk of sounding cynical, I think the logic at the top is: more arts--> more belt ranks--> more tests--> more $
This claim may merit further investigation. Is your Judo rank registered with anyone else?
