    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    What's the opposite of bullshido?

    Ok, here goes my first post outside of newbietown..* puts on Nomex

    I've been reading the threads here and apparently there are is a very defined criteria as to what is Bullshido, and I do agree with the classification.

    But what then is the opposite of Bullshido? Is there a community name for it? How does one define it? What are the marks of this "non-bullshido"?

    Sorry if this has been asked before. Can't seem to find it with the Search function.

    there's no opposite really, just legitimate martial arts everywhere.

    ok. Not trying to be rude or anything, but what then constitutes "legitimate martial arts"?

    I'll take a stab....

    If you say you're teaching people to fight or defend themselves, but they clearly can't, that's bullshido.

    So, if you're either teaching people to fight/defend themselves, and you can prove it, that's not bullshido.

    If you're not claiming to teach people to fight (e.g. Tai Chi, and ironically my judo instructor is convinced judo isnt great for defending yourself) then that's not bullshido.

    The opposite of Bullshido is training that performs precisely as advertised.

    Unless you count that one TKD video where the kid ki blast the dragon? I agree with the above.

    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.
