    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

    PROMISE!

    THE D34dleY!

    Testimonial!

    "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...

    [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]

    These programs are almost invariably bullshit. I use the term almost because I do not own all of them. Before entering Bullshido however I bought quite a few and I can safely say that I totally wasted my money. And yes I have noticed that they all seem to come from the same template. 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.

    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.

    t-nation - Dissecting the deadlift. Anatomy and Muscle Balancing Videos.

    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.

    Macho:

    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.

    The best response to having been fooled into buying crap, is to post reviews of said tapes and DVDs on Bullshido. :)

    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.
