This is worrysome. These people are literally 15 minutes away from me.. and I never knew it.
I hate the martial arts of this area. First my old TKD dojo has gone way of the 'TKD birthday party' and now this crap. We even have some super asian kung fu ninja place nearby too.
This is enough to make me want to commit suicide through guilt by proxy. Just being near them is enough to make me a very sad person.
video plz.... for xmas? video video video!

Look at these kids' eyes--they obviously think they're badass. Kids have this unfortunate thing called honesty--they aren't all jaded and cynical (like myself, and most of the wonderful clowns who post on this site). You and the rest of us can tell just by looking at them that they believe in this crap, and worse so, THEIR PARENTS. It is not like these kids are old enough to get themselves to these classes--it's their folks who are allowing it, paying for it, facilitating it, and, unfortunately, most certainly proud of it. Just because a parent's intentions are good doesn't justify a bad decision. These kids are innocent, but it doesn't change the fact that what they are doing is the epitome of all that is wrong with the Martial Arts in American culture. It is the parents who should be punished.
yeah, but I bet they will be a lot safer witrh cardboard sword and nobody in that group listen to led zeppelin
