    "Forget aikido!" - I clicked on an ad, hilarity ensued

    One of the Google ads had the tagline "forget aikido!" and I decided to click on it to be entertained. The ad lead me to a typical RBSD ad page which is just very entertaining.

    "Russell makes pressure points so easy to use. He has transformed my Martial Arts" ~ Bob Sykes 6th Dan Karate ~ Editor of Martial Arts Illustrated.
    I will never understand how anybody can take someone who claims to have a 6th dan seriously. Especially a 6th dan who says **** like that.

    “How The Release Of This Incredible New Fighting System Praised By The UK’s Top Experts Now Allows You To Take Out Almost Any Street Opponent, Bully Or Mugger With Just One Simple Strike!”
    And then the picture right next to that block of text is of some guy with his hands down in a vaguely Jun Fan looking position looking down at some guy who is on the floor. It looks like he just finished demonstrating a parlor-trick One Inch Punch.

    Sigh, crappy Jun Fan marketed as t3h d34dly. How boring. :pity:

    Bob Sykes is listed as the Editor of "Martial Arts Illustrated," however.

    I have never read a martial arts magazine in my life, and from what I've read on this forum about them, I don't believe I would ever be willing to spend my money for the privilege of doing so.

    There was a thread recently on Russell Stutely.
    He was pretty forthcoming and made no apologies for his use of advertising and marketing to sell his courses.
    The consensus was that he (over?)emphasised the pressure-point stuff in the adverts, but taught pretty standard (and apparently effective) RBSD which used pressure points as an "icing on the cake" type of thing.

    I just figured out the double meaning of "bully." I am slow.

    But it's kind of ironic that the Google ads on Bullshido generally advertise stupid things like that. And sometimes they're just random as hell:
