How can you improve on perfection? Go ask a bunch of LARPing pretenders you say? What a great idea!

The same happens in training, in the dojo, or wherever.
Someone comes in here with an attitude, they get tested. I've seen it happen a few times in the very short space if time I've been here. If they back up their wild claims, they seem to be accepted. Reluctantly.
Again, this also happens in the dojo, at training etc.
I don't want a mod to hold my hand if I make a dick of myself. If I make a spurious claim that my art is better than whatever, I expect - nay, demand- someone take me to task.
The same way that if I walked into a dojo and started correcting the instructor, I know I'll be sparring all night long, well, at least while I was still conscious.
I don't want to speak for anyone else, but this place seems to work pretty well.

I never said I was offended by whats on the site, I said when it turns into pointless name caling, threads turn worthless.

I moderate at two forums which don't allow personal attacks, flaming, trolling or profanity.
It's certainly a different setup here. You might notice if you read my posts that I don't use a whole lot of profanity here, nor do I spend a lot of time flaming. I'm hear to learn. It can be done. But you need to be able to accept reality.
The reality is that whatever TKD was in 1970, it's generally pretty useless in a fight now. And BJJ has its flaws, as does boxing, as does Judo, as does Muay Thai, as does freestyle wrestling . . . . BUT people can step into a few-to-no-rules environment with those styles and come out on top.
I studied TKD for a few short months, and I protested all the while that I wasn't going to be one of those MMA wannabes--I was going to master an art and then add to it as needed. Well, that works, but if the art you master doesn't work for your purposes, you're screwed.
It just isn't real to say that BJJ=TKD=Muay Thai=Shotokan=Folkstyle=Kung Fu. It's a denial of reality. Take a perfect clone of me when I had a few months' training in TKD and put him against me now, with a couple of weeks of BJJ, and I could take him without much trouble. I'm getting owned--controlled and submitted--by people half my size with a month or two of experience right now.
There were two guys at the TKD dojang who I really believed could probably take me in a fight, and each had years of training--both in "real" kickboxing, full contact. I did not believe that anybody there could take me with TKD. Hell, the instructor told us as much. Whenever the fast young black belts got a little too froggy, he'd warn them that much more and he could arrange for them to spar some Miletich students through Matt Hughes.
That always shut them down with sheepish grins.

A FAQ stickie some guy named KempoFist started to help the hapless newbs.
Another FAQ stickie for newbs in Strikestan.
And, of course, MrMcFu's definitive newbie FAQ stickie that is conveniently located in Newbietown.
Also, considering how much Bullies love MAP, do you really think this thread would be regarded as anything other than a trainwreck? I like RJ and was just razzing him, BS style. He's free to tell me to STFU. That's what makes this the best MA forum on the net.Shut the hell up and train.
