    What raises red flags for me is that they don't really have school listings or instructor names or anything. This whole thing might be a DVD/Book operation, in which case, it's at the very least McDojoish. Dunno about Bullshido, would have to watch a class or spar one of their guys to find out.

    All I really know about Sang H. Kim is that he has written a lot of Taekwondo and Hapkido books. It looks to me like his "Junsado" is *only* a book and DVD operation. There may be some value to his books and DVDs. However, if you are serious about learning striking and/or grappling skills, you will want to find an actual school or gym to train at (in addition to possibly studying Junsado). There's only so much you can learn without having someone to spar with. Maybe Junsado would be good supplementary material--I don't know.

    From the junsado site:

    Below are some commonly asked questions. Please look for your question here before contacting us.

    Can I be certified in Junsado?

    There are no ranks or certication in Junsado.

    Where can I find a Junsado school?

    Junsado is a self-training method. There are no certified instructors currently teaching this style.

    Does Sang H. Kim give seminars? Can I train with him at his school?

    Master Kim is retired from teaching. He continues to develop Junsado skills. Look for his upcoming feature film Zen Man, in which Junsado is the featured martial art.

    What is the difference between Junsado and other martial arts styles?

    Junsado is not a style, it is a way of seeing and resolving conflict.

    Junsado is an approach to training, taking an analytical look at what you do, why, and how to improve it. It's not taught anywhere as an actual martial art.

    It's not McDojoish as far as the books and DVDs as there's no attempt at grading made. Just a dude, writing about his approach to martial arts.
