I was wondering if anyone was familiar with any McDojos in Stockholm, Sweden. Would be fun to check them out to see what they're worth. :icon_rabb

I said McDojo, not Bullshido. You do know there can be a difference, right?
Still digging on James Brown

ATA/WTTU have started their invasion of Scandinavia. There are clubs in Lund, Oslo and (I think) Uppsala.

Jag vet att vi har några medlemmar från Sverige, men inte så många från Stockholm. Kanske du skulle gå ute i världen och besöka själv för Mcdojar. Kom tillbacka och berätta os vad du hittade.

WTTU( (World Traditional Taekwondo Union) is a subdivision of ATA (American Taekwondo Association) which is probably the largest McDojo 'chain' in the world. Their main system is Songahm Taekwondo. The webpage of the club in Oslo is http://www.blackbelt.no
EDIT - Oops I forgot: OMFG USE THE F'ING SEARCH FUNCTION N00B!!!½

I'm from Stockholm, but I've only trained at a decent karate school and a great judo school there. Last Friday I visited Brasa BJJs Stockholm academy. I saw that they shared the gym with something called "Dynamic VT." There were several pictures of GM Leung Ting. I thought "Sweet! I've found a real McDojo!"
Halfway through my training session, we started to hear loud thumps from the other room. The instructor, the illustrious former NHB-fighter Hans Ersson, told us that it was "just them VT-people doing they're Friday full contact sparring." Apparently a lot of them also train in BJJ and attend his Vale Tudo classes. I think I've found a hard core VT-school...
The only real, 100% McDojo I've ever found in Sweden is the one me and MEGALEF train at, and that's in Lund. Our club just rents the mat..

I pointed at him [the panhandler], bringing my rear hand up in a subtle approximation of the double Wu Sau guard that is the default hand position in Wing Chun Kung Fu.
"Step away," I hissed.

Hey, slavegan, or another of you Norwegians, can you translate this for me? My Norwegian isn't great, and I just want to make sure I really understand what they are saying.
Denne formen stammer opprinnelig fra "Count" Dan´te. Han utviklet visstnok denne formen på slutten av 60-tallet. Formen inneholder kun praktiske teknikker og er i utgangspunktet designet for selvforsvar. Teknikkene er satt sammen til EN lang serie med vekt på kontinuitet og flyt. Formen inneholder til dels både farlige og "stygge" teknikker. Hele formen skal kunne utføres på under 10 sekunder ved full fart. Lars-Erik Lie demonstrerer her formen på "nesten full fart" og klokkes inn på 8 sekunder.
Merk: Det er store diskusjoner rundt omkring i verden mht. på Count Dan´te og hans "Dance of Deadly Hands" som denne formen egentlig heter.* Vi representerer dog hverken BDFS eller Ashida Kim eller andre som lærer ut denne formen. Vi viser den her kun for "entertainment only", så kan enhver selv bedømme hva man synes/tror om formen."
I'm mainly confused about the last part. Thanks.
