    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    OMFG, I have failed you my fellow bullies forgive me....

    So yesterday, meaning Monday, we had this exchange student walking in selling vegeterian health cook books. I bite my tongue.

    He then asks us what we teach here and one of our guys goes 'whatcha interest?"

    He 'Jeet kune Do'

    I bite my tongue.

    Our guy 'well this is kinda Jeet Kune Do school, we do a bit of this and that and you get to take whatever you feel.'

    I bury my head.

    He 'well I take a class online'

    *wimper biting tongue.

    Our guy 'what kinda class?"

    He 'Jeet kune do, I send in videos'

    *trembling and biting tongue

    Our guy 'well here's a schedule if you want to train, I'm not really interested in the cook book thanks'

    Guy leaves says bye. I get up

    'please tell me he didn't just say what he said'

    'yup, online jeet kune do'

    *insert Omega rant here, I don't remember what I said I couldn't believe it.



    I know my guy posts here too so maybe he'll see this post and jump in and fill in the spots.

    It's one thing to know the habits of bullshido artists and quite another to confront them in the wild.

    You ever see Caddyshack? Remember how the bishop gets all pissed off and drunk after being hit by lightning? That's a bit how I feel right now. But on the other hand...

    Buwahahahahahahaha. Man, I thought I met some losers back when I was teaching TKD. But I never saw nothing like that. Hahahaha.

    I could've stopped him. I could've tried talking sense into the kid but nooooooo, I actually sat there and did nothing. It's not like my guys don't know what I think of this ****. Most of my students know I belong to this site. Imagine, I could've saved one bullshit artist and .....and.....I........failed.

    I don't know what is so out of the ordinary about grading someone's fighting skill according to their videos since Bruce Lee's nutriders have been doing that exact thing ever since his death.

    to be honest? it isnt worth the effort. i wouldnt have done it either. i see dipshits every day (university gym with a boxing studio- let your imagination run wild, trust me it won't even come close to some of the **** ive seen there) who do some kind of self taught no guard boxing, or even worse.... wing chun. I have tried a couple of times to talk sense into these people but theres no point. they wont listen, and usually get all shitty and defensive. I think that a training setting is actually one of the worst places to try and dissuade bullshido because nobody wants to lose face in such a situation. so unless you kick someones ass it wont work (and even then... there come the excuses)

    Egad! can you ever forgive yourself!?

    but nah, Its just that there is so much bullshit, you'd have to be jesus to stop it all. I get so tired of hearing untested theories and random bullshit based on shitty anecdotes. You'd think that i could take a vacation from that **** here in japan and that people would be able to tell the difference, but I get the stuck with the same set of watercolors to paint with.

    He was punching him like the collective karmic debt he'd accrued was coming to collections, mostly on his face.
