    Does Your Instructor Know You Post Here?

    And if he/she/(it?) did, would he care?

    There's a situation in the Supporting Members forum (which you cheapskates can't see, neener) that, along with a few other situations here over the years, has prompted me to ask this.

    It's safe to say that a lot of the people who've been involved with Martial Arts for a good while are old, and many of them don't do much with the wacky series of tubes that is the Internet. But the days of Bullshido sitting in a tiny little corner on the web relatively unnoticed are long gone. We've gone from being the underdog, to the top dog, and with that success comes a lot of consequences.

    And one of these consequences is that it's much more likely your instructor may be either reading your posts or posting right along with you.

    Now, we think this is an awesome thing. If only 50% of the people who did MA were members of this site, 100% of MA would probably be 200% better. (Don't ask me to qualify that with actual math.) Of course you know this, because you post here yourself.

    So I wanted to take an informal survey and see who specifically is posting here (or lurking) along with their training partners/fellow students and especially their instructor(s).

    My current instructor was very pleased with my review of his gym.

    To my old instructors: If you've figured out who I am, I'm sorry. I just don't like WT any more, and you should consider alternatives.

    Not currently training, but my former instructor wasn't pleased I was lurking here last year. I'm sure I must still have the messenger quote about a 'bunch of keyboard warriors'.

    Not me. I've had questions about my instructor that I've withheld for fear of him seeing it on this site, Not too many people from my city who train MMA and it would be pretty easy to figure out who I am.


    And i guess with that i just ratted myself out...brilliant.

    That's funny because we're the only site that's gone so far as to incorporate getting out from behind the keyboard and throwing down with each other as a major part of things in order to prevent keyboard warriorism.

    That's why I found it hilarious.....and at the same time as I was on MSN with him I think I was in the gallery watching Omega face block.

    I am going to do a review of my new school with their help, hopefully. It's kind of hard to just go taking pictures of everything inside someone's gym without them asking what's going on...

    I don't think the school owner/instructors even lurk here, but they have heard of Bullshido. I know at least more than a few students either lurk or are registerd here. I just don't know who yet...There's been talk of trying to get Matt Thornton to come do his thing here, but it hasn't happened yet. I'm going to start pushing for it because there are students walking in off the street signing up who know jack **** about anything. Hopefully, with the school review, more of them will come here and I can get a lot of them on the Bullshido bandwagon...

    Any suggestions/pointers to help would be appreciated...

    both of my (head) instructors know i post here; i'm actually about to send one a link to the fila wrestling rules discussion (and i showed it to the other one weeks ago). heck, i believe my karate instructor found this place from a google search - whatever he was looking up was mentioned in one of my posts.

    it's the internet. never post anything on a public site that you don't mind other people - including people you know - seeing. i am responsible for what i say, and therefore, i do my best to be circumspect. i am much more candid in my training log, but if they pay their money they get to see that - and i expect they would respect it for what it is, rather than get mad at any percieved slight.

    i can't speak for anybody else, but my instructors are my friends, and i want to keep it that way. that's one of the reasons i refuse to review my dojos.

    My instructor knew about Bullshido before I did.

    I don't know if he knows how much I've been posting here.
    It's come up in passing, but I haven't had a big sit down about it with him.

    I don't think it's a big deal, if it is he'll say so, but really if it were a problem, I guess it'd be his.

    I post under my real first name, and the style he trains me in.
    I guess I never thought it could be an issue.
    Maybe for more traditional styles?
    We don't bow, we call him by his first name, no titles. I really don't think it would matter.

    I expect that if I had a problem and aired it here before talking to him face to face first, that would annoy him, but we've got no problems and if we did I would talk to him first.
