    Oh, I think I got it. Sort of. Will have to see it in action to get it, probably. But can the "product" and the review be posted by the same person? It would make sense to me that I for example could check out a dojo, post it and eventual pics, and then review it in the same sitting. See, otherwise, a school could be posted and never reviewed, I think.
    Second question, will there be any kind of efforts made to get this out into public, more then the current stae of Bullshido.net? I mean, will we link this here and there, try to get the word out, or not?

    Thanks for answers.

    Yeah, it'll be a major feature of how we use the website. We've been meaning to do this for years now.

    Has anyone ever considered writing an article on how to do dojo reviews? There's a pretty obvious McDojo near me that some friends of friends are involved in, and I've been toying with the idea (with the encouragement of said first-tier friends) of going undercover there to see just how bad it is.

    I just don't know how to go about it, and I don't know if I'm a good enough actor to pull it off. Do I tell them I have no prior martial arts experience? If so, how do I hide my Muay Thai? I've searched Bullshido for pointers several times, but unfortunately have come up empty-handed.

    That's an idea. We'll have to put a guide together.

    May I suggest some sort of "Worst rated" and "Best rated" statistics by area and/or style, or something in that effect?

    An extension that you might want to consider, one that extends the Bullshido branding and helps out dojos, is offer a "Bullshido Certification" or something to that extent. Dojo's that satisfy certain criteria, subjecting themselves to an open examination process, get to post a certification.

    It has to be tracked via ID so false certs of McDojos can be identified and real ones verified. It should be volunteer based (as costs allow) so it has some authenticity above the Bullshido brand.

    Every certification that is seen reinforces this site's IP and is a free advertisement. Enough "Bullshido" certified dojo's and the McDojo's start to look more like the ugly duckling (before the end of the story).

    EDIT: This is poorly written because I am racing to get out of work. Normally I speek engulhish reel gud!

    "As approved by the #1 martial arts community on the internet" kind of deal?
    From my p.o.v. that would be cool.

    That is the general idea Backdraft. For the dojo it shows that they have submitted to review and found worthy by this community (also shows inquiring minds where to find 3rd party opinions). For Bullshido it is marketing and brand reinforcement.

    A strong enough brand can be more valuable long run than the product it sells, but that is a different and dangerous road.

    Take some time now if you have it and add your school to the system.
