Wait, that's not it... Or is it?
Regardless, contrary to what you believe, the "Bushido Code" was not a bunch of jackoffs sitting around trying to impersonate Cain from Kung Fu with bullshit philosophically meaningless phrases. Nor is it your fantastical imaginary notion of how the samurai continually acted with "honor" and "humility."
It's an idealized set of tenets that were often conveniently forgotten when the **** hit the fan.

That's awesome. I'm glad someone as experienced with Mr. Thrower as you are has decided to show up. Really, I don't believe these threads should go on one-sided. To hear the other side of the story brings truth to the discussion. That being said, welcome to Bullshido and I hope we can get some work done here.
I'm not quite sure I follow you. Let me give this a shot.
First, when has anyone here thrown venom, anger, jealousy or slander around? Only questions have been thrown and people with experience have shared it with us. I see nothing here that can be qualified as "slander."
Second, Mr. Thrower is indeed a man of flesh and blood, however any God fearing person would agree than a man of flesh and blood is far from perfect. Mr. Thrower is no different and we shall treat him no different than any other person we discuss on this forum.
If anyone ever asked me for my credentials I'd be more than happy to show them. I don't claim to be anything I am not. I have moral integrity and honor just like any other martial artist. My claims are that I am ranked Sankyu in the Nanka Yudanshakai under the USJF for Judo and attend BJJ practice once a week (though right now I'm on a break due to injuries). If anyone wishes to see proof of it, I'd be more than happy to show it. This includes Mr. Thrower.
Expectations are created based on offers. Mr. Thrower offers training in multiple styles from a black belt in said styles. If Mr. Thrower is, in fact, not a black belt in any of his claimed styles, then he has not met anyone's expectations.
Does that sound right?
Indeed, instructors are signs upon the road of life that we all walk.
Although, I must ask you...wouldn't you want a sign to point you in
the right direction? We, here at Bullshido, seek to ensure all signs
on the road of martial artists are true and point travelers down an
honorable and just path. Surely this is a just cause and an honorable
man such as yourself would promote such a purpose. Will you join us
in this quest for truth? All we do is ask honest questions and hope for
honest answers in return. Will you help us good sir?
