Bullshidoka argument #32:
You cannot find helpful information on the internet. The internet is a poor medium as it is full of lies.
This is from a bygone era when this was true. It was even partially true when I fist joined. Nearly six years later and the internet is a great research TOOL.
Point out that during investigations that the internet isn't the only tool used. Also, point out that with newspaper articles, court documents, IP searches, and email, that the internet is a valuable tool. It is one of many ways used to verify credentials, exonerate a person or prove someone fraudulent.
Bullshidoka Argument #33: The good guy or I respect what he has done for me, the community or both argument.
This comes up constantly and examples include people that teach the poor to people that serve or have served in the military.
Point out that it is a good thing that this person helped, served, volunteered, taught for no profit or works with the community. Yet, it doesn't excuse questionable behavior like fraud, fake credentials, lying, or any other justification.

I'm very interested in starting a discussion on questionable business/promo practices by MMA schools. I'm a student at a BJJ school, but work online and do marketing (also have a BA in journalism and worked in the field... until it truly pissed me off). I've seen gyms posting fake reviews of themselves, hiring content farms, etc... then using high pressure to get students to sign up.
Any thoughts as to whether or not this would be a worthy topic?

Dammit. I was just typing up a thread like this, and then double-checked to make sure it wasn't already done. NiceKnowing is not enough, you must apply...

Just wondering if anyone knew about a big Mcdojo, competing in a Japanese Goju tournament currently and not under their Mcdojo banner from Australia led by the 2nd in charge.
they have wanted to be recognised by a JKA FEDERATION for a long time but have to make big changes from their own style to do so.
OK so from someone who was told not to cross train within another, thats bullshit from my perspective (9 yrs in this club).
i'm pissed and changing to an allready affiliated club, not one that was started in a garage 30 years ago by karate bob.( worked it out yet??) go kan ???
I have enjoyed the students and the other people , the time and effort they put in .
but dissheartend by the management and those the head the club.
