i have recently discovered this forum and you are one of the most controversial people on it. i have several questions to ask you.
1) why do you hold martial arts in such low regard?
Kungfoolss: Hmmm, probably because much of the education and knowledge stylists receive these days, from their perspective arts, are generally substandard and deficient. With an emphasis placed on stylism and rather than on effectiveness. I believe it is especially telling that retarded people, the "mentally challenged," are able to participate and excel in the martial arts. The rote training inherent in many of the stylistic arts-primarily the TMA's-are wrong. For the simple fact of the matter, instilling an automatic reaction/response to a threat stimuli has the potential of getting you killed, because every variable is completely random and unpredictable. Thereby, rendering this form of training ultimately worthless.
As for the martial artist himself, let's be honest folks, more than half of these guys are complete morons. With the exception of Wastrel, Asia, Punisher, Phrost, SLJ, Kuntaokid, Peedee and the few others at this forum, mostly, it's the idiotic stylists that can do nothing but disagree with my views emotionally.
2) why do you think martial arts dont work?
Kungfoolss: A bit board, but sufficed to say, poor fighting mechanics and training, a defensive methodology, and sciences that are not compounding nor can they be integrated into a fighting whole; a conglomerate of garbage.
3) why do you think martial arts advocate cultish behavior?
Kungfoolss: I don't necessarily believe they "advocate" cultish behavior, but they do foster it. From their blind obedience, repetitive training, esoteric practices, to their inane rituals help to contribute to this harmful behavior.
4) why do you post in the peedee section?
Kungfoolss: I 'did' for a time, but did so only with Peedee's expressed permission. Phrost felt differently, and therefore created an additional section to post the martial arts news articles for my many fans to enjoy. <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
I hope this helps, from the Illustrious Kungfoolss

"For the simple fact of the matter, instilling an automatic reaction/response to a threat stimuli has the potential of getting you killed, because every variable is completely random and unpredictable. Thereby, rendering this form of training ultimately worthless."
to much execution of technique in standard patterns creates an undesireable tendency towards expectation/anticapation.
"poor fighting mechanics and training, a defensive methodology, and sciences that are not compounding nor can they be integrated into a fighting whole; a conglomerate of garbage."
styles as opposed to systems. good methods are systemic, everything is done for a reason, a practical one. lacking certain operational principles will potentially leave you very vulnerable to someone who is aware of and can use these methods. there are more factors than proper technique/principle execution involved, but if you are going to bother with technique at all, it seems best to to do it right.
"I don't necessarily believe they "advocate" cultish behavior, but they do foster it. From their blind obedience, repetitive training, esoteric practices, to their inane rituals help to contribute to this harmful behavior."
many traditions are practical ones, particularily rules of conduct between members. i personally feel that anything that does not serve the purpose of learning and improvement does not belong in a ma class.
excess sociability is also detrimental. traditions which call for disciplined practice and focus are good.
too many people try to mix in issues of psychology,religion, and sociability into the training. you have to deal with confrontational psychology, but that is an inherent function of good solid training routines.
maybe it is just me, but it seems that martial arts students/teachers often try to inject a lot of bullshit into training. hangups and whatnot...

"it's the idiotic stylists that can do nothing but disagree with my views emotionally."
Notice again the subtle disinformation that the Great One ladels onto this message board. This statement is apparently in direct contradistinction to the Great One's own behavior, his dismissive, seemingly contemptuous disregard for any statements outside of his own narrow agenda of "scientific" FearTM.
In one of my own first exchanges with the Unholy Prophet, he decried Phrost, saying that Phrost used the fear of banning in the assumed role of a dictator to control Bullshido and that was a bad thing, yet in the same thread the Great One spoke of how important, how desirable even (he boasts about it!), it was for others to fear (now known as FearTM) Kungfoollss. When I questioned that, he called my questioning psychobabble. That was when I knew his rules are not our rules, his thoughts are not our thoughts...
So the quote I use from the Autoreflexomalicious Kungfoollss above underscores this point - don't try to make sense of the Great One, because he cares not for reason, or convincing anyone of anything (if you are a potential member of the Cracker Brigade, you'll need no convincing), just feel the FearTM, feel the FearTM, f e e l the FearTM!

Actually what my pet likes to do is insult those of us who disagree with him and that is the catalyst for an emotional reply. Then he takes that emotional reply as us spouting against his original point. In fact I have yet to see him back up any of his arguments. Need to get a shorter leash for his ass.

Why? Do his views threaten you? Is that your answer to someone you disagree with, just go beat them up?
Ofcourse you wanted somebody else to go find and beat him. What does this say about you?
