You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
can any of the students supposedly use this chi power, or just the teacher?
from the looks of the videos it looks like all the students learn is how to jump backwards and stomp on the ground really hard as they land.
old man needs ppl to jump back for him lmfao
They're being flung away from them as he sprays them with his chi, didn't u know that? :5badair: Special chinese secret, eat many beans.
LOL. i swear to you...I'm going from tears to laughter and back to tears with this...yet another nail in the coffin of the CMA! It's a sad sad world.

I wish I had a time machine so I could see the bullshido artists of the day and maybe see them get owned. The scary part is that some of them could actually be our style founders! Humm...:XXsunsmil
Well after reading through that its time to spin the wheel of morals(Tm/Stolen from the Animaniacs cartoon) wheel of morality turn turn turn show us the lesson that we should learn....and it is...'Sometimes the only cure for stupidity is Vehicular Assault'...hmmm...

With no internet (and communications in general severely limited), knowledge wasn't as democratized as it is now. You couldn't consult with experts and you couldn't verify someone's expertise as easily.
Without Bullshido.net I may have never gotten the reality check i needed - i think that the less information available to the student, the more easily they can be taken advantage of.
That being said - if you can see with your own eyes that your master is getting his ass handed to him by a challenger, well.... then it should be obvious.
So, anyone know how common were challenge matches back in the day?
