    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Noob questions (No, not Saibot...lol)

    Hi! I just recently joined this page while researching McDojo's and the like (Specifically Ashida Kim and Frank Dux). I was wondering, what do y'all think of Dr. Joo Bang Lee, alleged "heir" to the Hwarang Do form of Korean martial arts? Though he was not mentioned on Wikipedia (which directed me to this awesome site) I have read various articles in Blackbelt and online where people question the good Doctor's authenticity.

    I also read that, in the olden days, all new martial art schools in Asia had to get the consent of the prominent form authorities before being allowed to teach. The new dojo sensei would compete, along with any students he might have, against other, established dojos, in front of the MA elders of the area. If the new teacher proved to be legitimate and skillfull, he would be allowed to keep his school. Otherwise, he would be humiliated by defeat and shunned by the community.
    --Now wouldn't it be so much easier if we could do that these days?

    First of all most lineage is bullshit.

    Second, Blackbelt is a gay magazine of paid advertisers.

    Lastly that whole last paragraph is bullshit. Who ever you heard it from give them a shoe horn and tell them to get their respective heads out their assess.

    Yeah, that's actually way more true NOW then it was 'in the olden days' - at least in China and NK.

    And it's still not that true.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.

    Actually it was Neal "Phrost" Fletcher, the founder of this site, who gave the information to Wikipedia about the phrase he coined. So if the info in the last paragraph is wrong...well...you should probably take it up with him. Go to Wikipedia.com, type in "McDojo" and look at the section on Bullshido. Then dispute the article if it is incorrect.

    Regardless of whether or not it is true...I think it would be a good concept if there were more Dojo War types of competitions in the US. Hell, people loved to watch the stuff anyway.

    ... its under "Bullshido" on this page ...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McDojo

    Formerly in East Asia, the tradition was that when an unknown (the traditional martial arts community had a system of references), fraudulent or ineffective school would open in a community, it would eventually be shut down by other schools in the neighbourhood through direct challenges before they could harm or defraud many potential students. If the established schools were impressed by the martial ability of the newcomer during the encounter, then they would, by tradition, be allowed to stay open. If the new school couldn't defend themselves effectively, they would be disgraced by being publicly defeated. This traditional political encounter between different schools became a favourite motif of martial arts movie makers. In modern, Westernized society, such practices are considered illegal, and therefore this kind of self-policing of the Martial Arts community is generally prevented. Consequently, almost anyone can learn a few moves and invent their own style, or claim to be the secret heir of a heretofore unknown ancient tradition going on to teach as many gullible souls as possible under the protection of local law enforcement.
    sheesh

    looks like you gotta spread some more rep before giving it to Shirobake again

    * edit *

    Nope, what Phrost said and what he said I see as two totally different things.

    Shirobake says "I also read that, in the olden days, all new martial art schools in Asia had to get the consent of the prominent form authorities before being allowed to teach. "

    Phrost says this "it would eventually be shut down by other schools in the neighbourhood through direct challenges before they could harm or defraud many potential stude"


    Not the same. Shirobake makes it sound like there's an official governing body when there never was. What Phrost is stating is the old tradition of candle burning where new schools would keep the candle burning to accept any and all challenges. If a challenger lost they would close there school down and usually become the student of the winner.


    Sorry nice try.

    Omega wins.

    Well, somebody doesn't like being upstaged by a Noob, do they? Picky picky. Now you are arguing semantics to try to save face. What you assume I meant and what I meant are two different things, and I will try to fetch all the details and slow it down next time, m'kay? "But...uh...it sounded like, uh" No. Bad. Play dead. Stay...that way...

    Semantics nothing kid. You asked/made a statement that wasn't true. If you want semantics then you say 'Dojo' referring to Japanese schools when this was a Chinese practice. Being shown up by newbies happens and I readily give credit for errors I've made. Doesn't exist in this case. If you can't convey your thoughts correctly maybe you should rethink moving on to first grade.
