They should just hand out patches written in Thai that you can add to your shorts.
It should say something like "I am more competent in ass-kicking than before. Fear me." and since it would be written in Thai, it would wrap around your waist anyway. It would be just like a belt without being McDojo-y.

personallyi would have suggested differant color footie wrappy things, that'd be cooler imo.

So long as the belt didn't cost an $100+ belt test, then it's not McDojoism

I don't believe this ****.
See, this is the problem. This is what I was talking about on the other thread titled "Weakest argument for not taking boxing" ..or something if a similar title.
Everyone love to put **** on karate for being a mcdojo.
A Muay thai school hands out coloured belts and grades.... no one calls bullshit on muay thai
Kidspatula claims fairtex muay thai gyms are a mcdojo chain interested in marketing strategies .... no calls bullshit on fairtex
But when karate does something of a similar standard "OOhhhhh no" it's labelled a mcdojo.
Bullshit martial arts practices and politics affect ALL styles. This thread just proves it.Hannibal: The sworn enemy of dishonest politicians, source of entertainment on Bullshido and newly appointed Office Linebacker. Terry Tait ain't got **** on me !!!!

Nothin the matter with making money as long as your **** works. Karate does things to make money and tends to not work, thats the differance.

But as I've seen you post more and more I understand that you just don't fucking get it. You're too dense to understand the simplist concepts.
Why do you think I posted this in the bullshido forum? Why do you think I said "I think it's hilarious"? Why do you think I came right out and said "yeah, it's mcdojo"?
Here you are bitching and moaning about people ragging on krotty... why? Just shut the **** up and stop whining, jesus christ.Ranked #9 internationally at 118lbs by WIKBA http://www.womenkickboxing.com/wikba...rch%202009.htm

Hannibal, you're not pointing out anything new.
Using a Mcdojo tactic, like awarding an arbitrary belt in MT, is not the same as charging an arm and a leg for sub-par instruction like most McDojos are frequently known to do.

But how long before people forget about the actual "being able to fight" part and starts to focus more on the "getting the next belt level" bit?
Everybody's saying that this and that martial art was super-hardcore back in the day before mainstream MA marketing, belt factories and increased commercialization of martial arts. You could be saying this about muay thai some day.
Adopting belts/grades as a form of encouraging students is NOT a good sign.

BJJ always had a belt system in it's tradition. It's a judo tradition that carried over. Muay thai never did.
