    I think the relatively large amount of Bullshido in the US might be part of a wider growth of irrationalism in US society over the past few decades. For example, compared to other developed countries, the USA has relatively high rates of religious belief, belief in alien abduction, creationism, and similar nonsense.

    The US also has a highly mediated pop culture that I suspect undermines some people's grasp of reality, and there is also an intense culture of multi-level marketing/sketchy entrepeneurialism in US society (info-mercials, self-help books, Amway, 'get rich quick' schemes, etc) that definitely overlaps with the underlying logic of Bullshido/McDojoism.

    That being said, we get this in Canada and Europe as well, but I don't think there's quite as much per capita.

    So, irrationalism = religion, aliens, creationism....and all other nonsense, is that correct?

    Thanks for that, and for your completely unqualified posting.

    EWTO (European Wing Tsun Organisation). Based in Germany. Pyramid scheme. Charges $$$ for 'information'. Many schools, including in UK, lock you in to year-long contracts.

    I think EU/UK law prohibits any longer, but they definitely squeeze as much $ out of the gullible fat, pasty geeky unfit punters as they can.

    Signed: a slightly bitter EWTO insider

    Guys like Matt Furey are the poster children of American Bullshido. Take a pinch of information, add a gallon of crap, then sell it to the masses as if it were pure gold.

    But seriously, I think that there are too many celebrity gyms out there that charge $400 a month when the big name guys are never even there.

    Has anyone else noticed that a lot of the bullshido candidates tend to follow definite trends in behaviour? Is there a pyramid scheme that these guys know about?

    Well, there are stupid people everywhere.
    I mean, up here in Kuopio, Finland we have 5 different flavours of Kung Fu. Also Bujinkan and The Dillman Special,Ryukyu-kempo (which i saved my friend from)

    And since they train at the same place as we do (ie an old bomb shelter) it's pretty hilarious to watch them glare at each other in the locker rooms. Thats way too much deadly for one town

    Don't Insult Run Run Shaw movies with fake ****. At least Shaw was entertainment. Who knew idiots would believe you could do all of the **** in real life.
