    No, not really. That's still "See? He sucks!" (albeit more politely).

    What would have gone over better is answering the questions asked instead of avoiding them with a response of "What?!?!? Can't you see he sucks?!?!?"

    Are we reading the same thread, or is your personal beef with this guy getting in the way of your judgment?

    Two examples of why I think you might be clouded on this issue:

    - You stated that I said he was okay. I've said nothing of the sort. In fact, I haven't even watched beyond a few moments of the first video.
    - You stated I didn't feel this gentleman was worthy of an investigation. I've said nothing of the sort. All I did was move the thread to YMAS because you haven't started an investigation. You are saying his martial art sucks.


    Your entire argument is that he personally is mediocre, therefore he must be a bad instructor. Still, even though you haven't shown at a minimum, him claiming to be a good instructor, your assumptive conclusion is (all by itself) a false claim that *he* is making.


    If you want something more than a YMAS thread, how about you come back with something which actually tries to show Bullshido?

    Ok, let's try to iron out any confusion.

    I didn't realise you hadn't watched the vid. That puts what you said in a differant context. You should really watch it, it will make you more aware of whats going on in the thread.
    At the end of the vid he claims to be an instructor of JKD. His performance in the vid certainly doesn't look like he has obtained a BB let alone instructorship in JKD. I am calling bullshit on it. (the next sentence is from looking at the vid and is guess work, I am not claiming this to be fact)I think he has at most couple of years in Wing Chun, Aikido and maybe TKD. A JKD instructor that does not make.

    It's like brown belt in Judo opening a BJJ school.

    Lastly, I have already said, I really have no problem with this being moved to YMAS. I completely understand that I don't have anything to start a MABS investigation with. I thought that the MABS threads were there to look into such things, that is why I posted it there. Next time i will read the stickies more clearly.

    Are we cool now?

    Update FWIW

    :deadhorseyes, but I wanted to post the reply from Brackins:


    RE: JKD vid on youtube
    Interesting as I didn't post that video on youtube, nor do I teach martial arts. I did practice martial arts in the past but not any longer. The video was posted by a friend of mine who is a film student, and he was filming me for a project. I find it humorous that people are actually posting or linking that video.
    His friend is the guy Derren with the youtube account.

    Moral of the story: Martial arts and film students are a bad combination, especially ones who listen to Type O Negative.

    So smile a little more, let that car out into traffic, give your neighbor a friendly wave, because tonight we can all breathe a sigh of relief. :love1::love3::icon_flow:XXhippylo

    Well, there you go he disclaims it totally.
    There's no choice but to confront you, to engage you, to erase you. I've gone to great lengths to expand my threshold of pain. I will use my mistakes against you. There's no other choice.
