Old thread but great topic. Add Kokondo Karate to the list. With a Jim Jones-type "leader", insane loyalties, "group think", punishment & ostracism for deviating from the said "group think", pompous self-important 'masters' who will hypocritically turn on students and violate their own codes of behavior if you don't bow down to their delusional self- importance, secrecy & covering up for piss poor (including sexual harassment) behavior of some of their instructors, 'bitch patrol' barbaric goons who will show their "loyalty" to the system by being completely unethical & corrupt..seriously, don't go to them to learn self-defense, we need self-defense FROM some of them..

Ha! I know, really...but they do seem so great at first.
