I plan to make a post explaining a few things which somehow have been misconstrued, but thats it. im done with a community that condones poor training, limits free speech, and doesn't share.

5/12/2006 1:49am, #516In the case of Bullshido, your core belief is this Aliveness, and by extension a belief that sparring generally settles all disputes. However, all arguments take place within that context- you say training with Aliveness is the best way, and if people feel otherwise they should test themselves against you in an Alive fashion. The bedrock assumptions do not allow anything different.
So what would you recommend instead if someone claims to have a superior theory on fighting? How would you go about proving it in a non-alive fashion? Shall the person LARP the technique on Phrost? Should they fight full contact with no rules? Sounds awfully alive to me. Aliveness IS reality, and aliveness gives you the skills to apply any techniques regardless of the style in the most efficient and practical manner.
To be quite honest to stop all of these bogus insinuations I quite honestly will fight any one of these "too deadly" fighters with them having no rules, and all I can do is punch in the face with ground n' pound tactics. I'll put my life on the line to enlighten the delusional and the misled masses. Does that make me Jesus yet?

Hope I never have to see you expousing your expertise on anything until you have maybe another five years under your belt though.
I thought a lot less of you for some of your recent posts (up to you, whether you give a monkeys about that or not).
ps- not saying that experience doesnt have a big factor, just that it isnt the only and not always the biggest factor
pps- also not implying im any kind of badass here just justifying my train of thought
ppps- i dont really know you except as another troll who does nothing but badmouth everything so your opinion of my recent posts isn't making me lose too much sleep

What a fucking ridiculous comment to make.
Given the option , the majority if the MA world would rather Bullshido didn't exist.
Bullshido is what....the first ever VB forum to ask members to help finance it once acheiving a given size?
MAP existed long before Phrosty boy started spamming other forums for McDojo.com.
The reason you needed 'supporting members' on Bullshido first, was simply because of all the video content you like to host for ridicule on here.
I can't believe that comment when, some dickhead went to the trouble of making an MAP skin up for an April Fool spoof.
Cheers Samantha, that made me chuckle.

I still think that their was things showed on that meeting that shoudn't of been showed but as Matt pointed out there was some dubious things showed in BS meetings as well (even if they didn't get the 'Trowdown' label).
But the difference is that on BS that was discussed and made ridicule of and the videos are still available, while MAP's reaction to criticism is Bannishment and hiding of evidence....Martial Arts is like sex, if you over complicate it with exotic sounding names, theories and principles, you end up fucking yourself in the ass. -Ronin69

Just to try and get a more unbiased objective opinion, I showed the video to a friend of mine with little more exposure to MA than taking her son to kiddie TKD classes. Not wanting to contaminate her opinion, I gave her little explaination as to what she was watching and just asked her to be honest. She had this to say:
this seriously looks like a Weight Watchers group having a funday outing at some martial arts gym
