Obviously bullshido. If any of the people who do those things were motivated enough to actually do them in a way that they are challenged and become proficient, they would be motivated enough to find training from an actual person or move to a place where they could get training. pretty much pointless.

xcakid. If you send me $100 I'll send you some stuff that worth $5 of paper and ink.
Getting the idea?

This don't belong here but I'm going to place it here anyway.
Kinda goes with reputable an art or school can be ? Don't know don't care what the hell.
Resently I went to a TKD tourament use an old Karate form I had learned mostly on my own , that I haddn't seriously practiced in almost a year, A tonfa form I created myself that I hadn't practice in the same time frame.dusted them off about two weeks before hand and took gold with both. Now yes this was a small tourament perhaps a hundred peole. And I think this says more for the training these people do than my ablilty Because I don't thik I should be able to just walk in and do this And I didn't just walk away with the highest score I had acouple of the judges later tell me that my form was nothing short of amazing. I don't think it was it was not my best presentation of the form I was tight I was competing againest kids half my age and moved myself up to brown belt from green just to challange myself. How does this relate back to te first comment **** why move and pay for an instructor when I looks like you can get as good of a result from staying home?
I did. Ok perhaps I had a better foundation to work from, I am regularly working out with a judo club but still I should have come away with at best a good feeling about going out and doing something different I don't think I shpould have been able to finish in the top three. And yes they where that bad.

Damn Sparkie, all I can say is, unfreaking believable. Some of those judges may not have that much experience or seen many different forms. Of course with all these "hybrid" arts popping up. Its kinda of hard to tell.
Here's looking at you, squid.

Can I sign up to take correspondence gymnastics lessons and send my son to a correspondence summer camp while we're at it? Some things require hands-on instruction.

We are free to evade the effort of thinking, to reject reason, but we are not free to avoid the penalty of the abyss we refuse to see."
