    it sounds from the responses like he talked to a kid whose school had been as honest with him about the practicality of what they were learning as you can reasonably expect while still looking out for the interests of their school.

    but "I talked to a kid who is studying martial arts for reasons other than to get really good at fighting and is OK with it" would be a long title. So he shortened it to "I talked to a kid", and then put "Bullshido" in there to remind us what site we're on.

    Mystery solved. I'm going to have another cup of coffee.

    My major bullshido complaint is that the kid is up for a black belt, which I can't take seriously. This isn't a great argument, but I'll still do it: I couldn't do **** to a BJJ black belt, whereas I could stop this kid in one strike. A black belt should mean something significant, but it actually means all sorts of stuff depending on what art you take.

    Agreed. It's taken me 17 years to get my 2nd dan in TKD. It saddens me that there are children who out rank me.

    I dont watch T.V. its bad for you and rots your brain ... unless its Adult Swim ... then its just bad for you .

    Earlier today I talked to a chick who thinks that REIKI has Martial application and compared it to Tai Chi for self defense ...

    The Difference between this post and the first post ... is simple ... I didnt start a new thread to share this girls ignorance with you all ...

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    And is he getting a black belt or a junior black belt? While I don't agree with awarding kids black belts, the junior black belt isn't too bad an idea to my mind.
    I tried to respond to this earlier, but it didn't post somehow.
    I meant 2 months before his black belt test, not 2 years as I typed in the OP.
    Also, I think for a regular black belt.

    But you got to share it now. Isn't that what Your Martial Sucks is for?
