    History of Krotty

    Ok, yo guys, I need you to fill in the blanks :)

    I've seen the term krotty several times in the forums, and so far, from what I understand is 'karate with red gi' or something like that. So people say that it's so-so as a striking art, others say that it's BS. So what's the gist?

    I did a search, and so far there is no history of it anywhere. Where did the term 'krotty' came from? And what's up with the red gi????

    Not sure if this is the right forum. However, I'd like to see this thread as a discussion on the history of krotty. Ergo, I'm putting it here.

    AFAIK, it's just a parody of the pop-cultural pronunciation and conception of karate; so implicitly, "krotty" (a.k.a "kroddy", etc.) is a superficial, McDojo-esque approach to traditional martial arts.

    I like to think of Krotty as the mullet crowd! The pony tail wearing shihans and thier ilk.

    It's the saturday afternoon point tournaments where the real resaon for having the competion is so that all the "Shihans" (none of which are Asian, ever been to Okinawa, or even met a real Okinawan...yet teach Okinawa karate) get together so that throngs of green belts can bow to them across the gym floor, thus elevating thier own warlord perceptions of them selves.

    Krotty is red white and blue gis, Musical kata, Self-defense champoins, and Inductees into the World martial arts hall of fame. (did i say inductee? I mean the plaque you pay $400.00 for)

    Krotty is secret moves in Kata that only the "shihan" knows and will show you when you are ready.

    Krotty is "numchucks" and Pakistani swords bought at the flea market.

    Krotty is the fighting arts of the highschool learning disabled that do jump kicks in the lunchroom.

    Krotty is calling your Instructor sensei at the mall "Bow to your sensei!"

    Krotty is skills to deadly to use in a gentilmans game.

    Krotty is being 25 years old and having a 4th degree in anything.

    Krotty is wearing your silk screed gi to the bar after class.

    Krotty is packing a pair of colapsable "numchucks" in your metalica denim jacket.

    Krotty is thinking your Krotty can't be beat.

    Krotty is beliving that a palm heel strike to the nose will force the bone into the brain killing the bully about to beat you up...thats all you have to do right?

    Krotty is teaching women to put thier keys in thier fist with the sharp bits between thier fingers so that they can cut the **** out of thier hand rendering it useless durring a fight.

    Krotty is the sound of fresh starched Iron man gi snaping...wow he hit hard.

    Krotty is getting a tatto of krotty on you neck.

    Krotty is beliving all you have to do is put a well placed side kick to a knee to win a fight.

    Krotty is a gi full of patches to prove how good you are.

    Krotty is beliving kata, not fighting, will teach you how to fight.

    Krotty wearing ninja shoes all day long.

    Krotty is white people trying to be japanese...well what they think is japanese.

    Krotty is putting up a sign in front of the dojo thats say you teach karate, kung-fu, aikido, arnis, jui-jitsu, and tai chi. Pick an art mother fucker.

    Krotty is being the "shihan" but being to important to actualy teach the class people signed up for...brown belts make better teachers anyway.

    Krotty is beating up white belts...but not sparring with black belts.

    Krotty is hitting on every woman that wanders into your trap...I mean dojo.

    Krotty is being forced to teach for the "shihan" even though you are paying him for class.

    Krotty is getting your second degree black belt because you memorize some linage that proves the "Shihan" is a direct disiple of motobu.

    Krotty is getting a black belt, but having never even gotten a bruise. This can cause cancer you know...and besides, you have to go to work on monday.

    Krotty is being the State "kumite" fighting champion, yet never haveing been in a real fight.

    Krotty is hitting your students, but not letting them hit you.

    Krotty is pretending ground fighting does not exist.

    Krotty is teaching ground fighting...even though it does not exist...but you did go to a seminar one time.

    Krotty is pressure point knock outs.

    Krotty is the fighting arts of white trash.

    Krotty is everything Karate is not.

    Krotty is very difficult to spot. difficult indeed!

    Krotty is "Oww!!! your not allowed kicks to the legs!!!
    Krotty is "Just go with it (whatever lame throw/armlock/wristlock) for now"
    Krotty is "Disorientate with a backfist to the temple, the follow up with reverse punch to the ribs!"
    Krotty is "Your getting too sloppy, hooks and uppercuts are too easy to block, make sure the technique is clean and quick"
    Krotty is "You want to go over what we were doing last week? Errr... We'll come back to that later"



    I could literally go on all day. On the one hand when we get new people in who aren't used to proper clinching or sparring you just want to crush them for being part of the mockery that is Krotty, but on the other hand if you take your time with them and explain that it takes a bit of elbow grease to actually become good at fighting you might actually get one or two who will come back.

    Krotty is a four time national flying kama musical weapons form champion who is a 12 year old "nidan".

    Krotty is that same 12 year old "nidan" telling a 20 year old that his "flying backfist" lacks power and will not score the point.

    Krotty is being taught that a "flying backfist" is a "deadly" fighting technique and must be pulled for fear of collapsing someones skull.

    Krotty is wear a camoflage belt.

    Krotty is being taught that you will be unstoppable in a street fight, so long as the attacker only uses a half moon step coupled with the dealy lead punch and holds his/her arm straight out so that you may apply your "whirling hammerfoot of utter destrution".....hey, if it worked for Jean Claud Van Damnselle it must be good

    Krotty is beleiveing you are a badass because you can do the splits between two chair like the Van Damner.

    etc, etc, etc...........

    Edit: Holy Crap, that Kirkpatrick chick is damn hot!!!!
