I like the idea of doing a mini Bullshido guide in print or online, there's also the option of getting a piece in one of the free local papers.
If I needed to lift some information off Bullshido is it Phrost or the person who wrote it (or both) I would need to get permission off?

Check with Phrost, Omega, PizzDof and maybe Samuel.

I don't intend that to be an insult. I like the idea, but from a consumer perspective, I can only see this being useful as a 1-hour lecture on how to choose a martial art -- and even then, your most likely demographic will be soccer moms looking for info that might help them decide which school to choose for their 8-year old.
Otherwise, you have to be able to answer this: Why would someone want to take your class(es) instead of just signing up at some dojo somewhere? I can already see the confusion:
"So, it's like a self-defense class, but it's not?..."
Just something to think about...

What can I say I like the idea (it's mine course I like it), but on reflection I don't think I have the skills to present it properly (not without some more work).
Taking into account various comment from different members I feel that a way forward for this idea is to write an article for the local free papers & run a class off the back of that.
When I say run a class I mean get someone far more skilled than myself to do this. Therefore this may take some time to plan and organise, but I am still confident in the basic premise.
(Ad even as a one hour lecture I feel it may still have potential).
