Ever seen those matt furey spinoffs?
Is there a name for the 'matt furey' style advertisements and training programs?
I mean they all seem to follow a generic template
-promise fast results
-quick or intense/little training
-bizarre/unknown/ancient methods (shao lin monks or roman gladiators or whatever)
- the SAME SHITTY FONTING
"I used to not be deadly but now I am deadly thanks to *insert random shitty training program*"
Just order this set of 18 DvD's for $539.80
SPECIAL TODAY RECIEVE $29.99 off next order! Thats one DvD free!
So has anyone ever bought this crap? Heres a recent one I saw on youtube then went to the site to have a laugh...
I've read the old article on Matt Furey on bullshido it made me giggle, what category however does this kind of 'street fighter' spam fall into?
RBSD + LARPing?
Am I totally wrong? Is this stuff le genuine articula?

[sarcasm] Yes, yes it is. I increased my reality by 46%, my deadliness by over 54% and my t3h d34dliness by a whopping 78% using this program and excercising 3 seconds a week. I was once a computer geek getting beat up by bullies am now a professional (insert one)ninja, pirate, cowboy, jedi CIA assasin, d34dliness entreprenneur etc[/sarcasm]

I think (but am not sure so dont quote me) the template is actually copyrighted to Matt Furey and others have to pay him for his "superhuman marketing" program for the rights to use them.
lol!! hey how come your rep is so terrible? Did you make a bunch of silly posts when you first joined up?
I've written some dumb **** on other forums * blushes*
Freestyle Fighting Academy and several websites run by Rhadi Ferguson use the same template and marketing strategies. It annoys the **** out of me because
1. The entire marketing system blows and its retarded, and
2. They are not bullshido, but by using those templates, they may turn legitimate customers off.
Read this for flexibility and injury prevention, this, this and this for supplementation, this on grip conditioning, and this on staph. New: On strenght standards, relationships and structural balance. Shoulder problems? Read this.
My crapuous vlog and my blog of training, stuff and crap. NEW: Me, Mrs. Macho and our newborn baby.
New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris
LOL I talked with Rhadi last night after a tele seminar. Great guy BTW with a wealth of knowledge. Yea your right that template they use is straight McCrap. But I bet he would say if it works for all the bad ones why not for the good ones.
I know we talked about it in my other thread but I agree about the FFA site: to me it looks like a trainwreck. It is kind of strange since it used to be "normal" and (IMHO) much better before they went with the Furey Format. Although the flipside is that it must draw in customers or it would be changed back.
However, the academy and the Avellan's are top notch so it isn't an indicator of Bullshido in this case.
Lol I hate the template too, and its definately associated with more bullcrap than legit stuff.
a pity no-ones told your friend to change his website!

People shouldn't be susceptible to risk (in this case, risk of spending a significant amount of money before being able to fully judge whether it is bona fide).
Why don't people ever sell cheaper versions or single DvD's etc? - it is always a set.
I once saw one for over $1800 - thats more than it costs me to do a year of unlimited training!
thats alot of money to pay for a review that says 'this is crap' lol
Like I asked before, anyone ever bought this stuff? I've never even been tempted. I once got convinced to go into a multilevel marketing seminar when I was about 19 and ever since then I've been alot more skeptical of this kind of crap.
You tell him!
