Not to argue with your position here as I completely agree with it, but this is probably the 10th time this has been brought up.

Oh well, one can only hope they are sitting down with their pencils and paper scripting another post for a thread that they claimed was 'dead' a few weeks back.
You are totally wrong, This is an unnecessary and ignorant attack...

If you'll take some advice, know that writing a book that explains JP's past by words edited from JP's mouth doesn't prove or hold any credibility at all. If you're writing this book JP, make sure there are additions from people like Demille etc... that can justify what you claim. I don't want to hear any shitty testimonials from your sifus or kool-aid drinking students that you usually put in your seminar sales crap. Be honest and truthful about yourself, and surrender your damn pride so that a clean slate might be provided. Talk about your past, tell us your criminal record and the trouble you got into. Tell us the reasons as to why these incidents happened and don't say, "some asshole came into my school and was interested in what I taught, so I busted his face". I know you'll try to paint this god like picture of you, but don't kid yourself, tell us who you are and what really happened. Everyone has skeletons in their closet and if you believe you're man enough to shed light on them, then do it and you'll be more respected for it.
This is some writing advice and I hope you take it, otherwise who wants to read this ****. I DON'T WANT TO BE SOLD ANOTHER ONE OF YOUR CRAPPY BOOKS OR DVD'S!

Oh noes! he's TOTALLY BURNED ME!
I know *I* quit as soon as they said I had to do t3h deadly knuckle pushup.

Perhaps the book can cover why you keep secrets, want people to buy into a more expensive program rather then just teach good stuff period.
I saw the add for the BBC, wow the people not in BBC must feel like they are getting taught **** after seeing that.
Stories of thuggery against a school were your goons paid a visit?
Your rep seems to suck and it isn't your lineage in question as much as your character. I dont think anyone really gives a Rats Ass on what you charge or dont charge... its how you do it which seesm to be in question here.
Along with the pyramid marketing schemes. Perhaps that could be addressed in the book?
Maybe you should have stayed training with guro Inosanto rather then one seminar? You can learn alot about humbleness from a true master.
I let many things pass through my brain filter that seem unimportant at the time. Reading through this occassionally triggers memories of another FSD story that smacks as totally bullshido.
I remember asking about certain members of the BBC - pictures of all BBC members are posted in each school. I asked who they were and why I hadn't seen them at any BBC meetings. I was told that some of them lived far away - some in Southern Ontario (Kitchener, Toronto, Hamilton, etc) and wouldn't come to BBC meetings in Ottawa. One of the sifus actually addressed this in a class and said these BBC members were not committed to their training because they would not travel. He then spouted off on the virtues of sJP and how committed he was because he travelled back and forth to Seattle to learn from his instructor, one of Bruce Lee's original students. If sJP did it, then these BBC members had no excuse.
It certainly does appear through the things written here that sJP travelled their one time, if at all. If that is the case, well it is just more Bullshido on their part.
Haru, I know what you mean. The FSD memories are flooding back! I've repressed them for so long!
I remember a sifu addressing the class about his opinions on the UFC. He said that he, and the other sifus, called it, "Ultimate Fighting Crap." He explained that a "real" fight would never last as long as the UFC matches do, and that a FSD practitioner should end a fight in thirty seconds, or less. He also explained that the UFC was BS, because of all the rules, and he cited the rule of not kneeing a downed opponent in the head. He said that this is why thier takedowns are so effective, as they have one knee down while shooting in, thus saving them from the knee to the face. Then of course, he explained that a FSD practitioner would easily stop such BS takedowns with said knee.
It's happened at least once! LOL
