I'm ashamed to say that I did EPAK too... looking back, there was some crazy **** they tried to teach me. I should whip my old Kenpo book out and read off the techniques.

I moved the pointless bickering to Trollshido, take it there folks.
Oh, and for my contribution:
You are a total Douchbag. Train more, post nevermore.

Actually, it was probably a class I lead. I made everyone run up a 3 mile trail in Sedon AZ in the snow wearing their hiking boots and then we trained in about a foot of snow up on a rocky precipice. After warming up with basic techniques in the snow and getting our boots thourougly soaking wet, I made everyone do Pyongwon on a stone archway with a fifty foot drop on one side and a seventy foot drop on the other. Those that didn't know Pyongwan got to practice side kick-back kick and round kick-back kick combos. Then we sparred in the snow. Sparring in the snow with sodden hiking boots is interesting. Even if your ponderously slow kicks miss, you throw so much snow up into your partners face that its pretty easy to follow up with a couple of punches. Having lots of prickly plants to fall into also made it interesting. After all this good fun, at least our 3 mile run back was mostly downhill.

The complaints from parents were hilarious though.
He must have lost 8-10 students with that little bit of genius.
*I mean bundled into a car, raped and killed, obviously.
Most Bullshido exercise I can recall was from WTF Tae Kwon Do, circa 1983. There was a move to get everyone to kihap (kiai) using the phrase "Tae Kwon!" on damn near every punch and kick. Felt ridiculous, strained everyone's voices and only lasted a couple of weeks.
The most bullshido training activity would have been "testicle conditioning"! Yup, chi kung exercises to condition your testicles in such a way that you would be less prone to pain when struck in that particular pair of your anatomy! It basically consisted of me doing breathing exercises while gently slapping my own balls...of course the embarassemente/awkwardness factor was through the roof, that allied with the fact that it was supposeddly a secret skill only taught to 2nd level belts and up! Never did that training again, so I cant tell you if that stuff really worked or if it was something cooked up just to embarass us!:listen:
Kata. To music. Badly performed classical music.
At least I wasn't wearing the flag Gi like our performance team did when they did them.
