Most bullshido-esque training activity you have ever been made to do
Mine has to be being told to stare at tree's to try see there chi... . By trying to widen your peripheral vision. Eventually saw a blurry outline but it seems likely that was due to the unfocusing of the eyes.
There must be some gems on this forum, share!
There are a few AKK techniques I take issue with. Basically, anything with "Gift" in the name, two for defending against a tackle/takedown, and a couple of others. Most bullshido thing I hear or read quite often, AKK is "all inclusive". I've never actually learned groundfighting from the AKK curriculum. Any groundfighting I've learned is based off of Judo/Ju Jutsu, MAC, and my experience in HS wrestling.
Kiai like some type of buffoon.
While we were doing breakfalls the instructor had us do cartwheels!
Not that it wouldn't be cool to learn how to do a cartwheel. But I fail to see the cartwheels martial use?!?!
Went to a seminar held by a kung-fu dude.
Previously had attended seminars held by him which were pretty damn good (escrima, some SD stuff), so were hoping for some interesting and different stuff.
I stopped listening when he said "now imagine lazers coming out of your fingertips".
Later, as we were leaving the car park, the my mate saw me pointing out the car window at the kung-fu guy, who was also leaving.
"What you doing?" my friend asked.
"guess" I replied
"you're trying to shoot him with your lazers, aren't you?"
I just nodded. Needless to say, I could not summon up chi lazers to wreak revenge on the twat for wasting 3 hours of my life.
Knife defense by traditional Judo and Karate guys aka "50 creative ways to get yourself killed".
LOL you're dumb!

Was only something like a tenner, but that wasn't the point.

Ain't nuthin' but a chi thing...
