    What site have you been lurking on?
    He has been away from bullshido so long. He has become a veteran noob.

    At the risk of sounding like a Huge BJJ nut rider I will say this.....

    It is heartning to know that, on a web page devoted to exposing MA fraud, that a HUGE portion of the members (probable majority) are BJJ practitioners.

    That speaks volumes about the art, at least in my mind.


    especially considering that as a whole, BJJ is still a tiny percentage off the martial arts students in the US.


    p.s. and yes... before you ask, I have no point... I just had an observation and instead of creating a new thread, I put it in the most appropriate thread I could think of.. one labeled "attention BJJ nutriders..."

    LOL

    Hah, a friend of mine uses that very same analogy. "Trying to say you can fight because you do all these compliant techniques is like a civil war re-enactor saying he's practiced enough and he's ready to go to war. LARPing is LARPing."

    Practicing a martial art whose techniques come from Jujutsu is not larping. However a a large portion of Aikidoist especially on the internet think that Aikido makes them Japanese and even a samurai.

    No- never said that I fought 8 and won. Said I was alone against 8 fighting each other and not only survived, but came out on top. I was the one tossing bodies out the door and trying not to get hit with pool cues- grappling wouldn't have helped me at all.

    Not once have I lied or inflated my history. It is not something I am particularly proud of and I actually turn my students away from bouncing et.al.

    But the goal of my post was and is to start a dialogue with the nutriders as to the mere possibility that other systems and styles might actually have some merrit and valuable tactics.

    I expected flame. Knew I would get it.

    I didn't come to this site to demand respect for myself- and have received very little. I thought this was about exposing fraud. Styles cannot be frauds- a style is an idea. Only a man can create fraud.
