I've just read your latest and rather amusing article. I agree completely on the disfunctional and delusional state of most trad martial artists globally: their status often ranges from chronic "big fish in tiny dilusional pond" sindrome, all the way to outright stupidity.
That is the flaw of many a bullshido schools, teacher, students, books, magazines, ..... the whole great bullshido industry. But is not necessarily a reflection on the worthiness of trad MA. An example?
Well, I'll give you a suggestion, perhaps expensive but sure to impress: travel to Shaolin village, issue random challenge to monk/school/figure of authority, have challenge accepted by student of such monk/school/figure of authority, have a$$ handed to you by such student irrespective of your MMA BJJ or other modern MA training.
I've spent 8 weeks training at Shaolin, and have seen a few of the "big bad western martial artist" that had the brilliant idea to spend a few thousand $ to travel to the birthplace of most MA, issue a moronic challenge, and be beaten by a much younger and much smaller opponent. Surprisingly, it happens quite often. Unsurprisingly, they all become humbled students after.

Im sure you have.
I've also been to Shaolin Temple SEVERAL times(under the cover of night) and brought many little girls to publically challenge the monks. The little girls always won but we werent allowed to reveal exact names or anything, just like you.

Guys, rather then insult, why not be more open minded to things you don't know? I mean, your attitudes towards trad MA, of which you know little about other than what you see/learn in most mcdojos, is just as silly as the attitude of most traditionalists towards modern MMA. Both close minded.
It's amazing how everyone is always ready to talk about, and diss, things thay know nothing about. I know many trad Martists who will talk endlessly about the failures of BJJ without having ever stepped in a serious BJJ class, and whilst learning some completely bogus bullshido stuff. Similarly, you guys (the above posters) are ready to dismiss Shaolin as total bs having never travelled let alone trained there.
You have the very same close minded attitude that makes most trad Martists morons :)
Think about it,

Chinpau's right, students who train in McDojo's are idiots. Travel all the way to the bithplace of their respective martial arts (shaolin- China, Shotokan Karate- Japan , etc.) so **** the crap and see if what they teach is similar to what you paying idiots teach.

Please try to make some sense.
Now imagine your pain is a white ball of healing light, that's right, your pain, the pain itself is a white ball of healing light....... I don't think so!
